plant witch apprenticeship
UPDATE 8/19: APPRENTICESHIP IS FULL- EMAIL TO BE PLACED ON WAITING LIST
FALL 2019 // September 2nd - December 13th, 2019
The plant witch apprenticeship is a small program designed for 6-8 witches interested in herbalism, using plants for ritual, astrology, moon cycles, tarot, and more to expand their skills and find a supportive community while working on collaborative projects. The goal is to be able to utilize witchcraft skills mentioned above and combine and integrate them into your current work and practice. Participants will be self motivated, goal oriented, and contain a commitment to integrating anti-racist & anti-oppression frameworks into their spiritual practice.
Beginning on the waxing crescent moon in Virgo and ending on the full moon in Gemini, this course is self-directed and self-motivated and completion will rely on the apprentices ability to dig deep on their own process. I will be here to support you through this, through regular emails and tutorials, and a twice monthly group chat on the first quarter/third quarter moons to discuss our process in real time.
Apprentices will begin by setting one goal or identifying one project for the duration of the apprenticeship. Apprentices will ask for support in seeing this project through from Corinna and from the other apprentices. Past apprentices focused on developing their apothecary, beginning a professional tarot practice, and starting a blog.

“I cannot believe how fast 3 months flew by, I had such a wonderful time getting to work with you. This was the perfect kind of class setting for me as it was quite easy to fit in around my full time work schedule. This offering finally got me started on so many good projects that I’ve been thinking about for a long time. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to learn about making my own plant medicines from you.” - Alyssa
“I loved being able to participate in the New Moon workshop. I loved trading with the participants. I thought it was all very community supportive. I didn’t really know what to expect but it was fun and a real growing experience. I appreciate your support and your encouragement. It came at a perfect time to push me to trust my self and step out bravely. I feel like the cost was worth it just for that—and I got so much more.” - Nan
