The Wheel




"Remembering the Ancient Waste, The Compost Has Begun!"

 ~Blake Spencer, MM2017

Second year apprentices continue to work within our living mandala of intuitive and lineage based tools and practices that support the unconventional wisdom keeper in sharing their unique spirit medicine on a professional level while maintaining excellent physical, emotional, and psychological health.

Second and third year apprenticeship is primarily of interest for those looking to grow their leadership and space holding capacities by serving as role models and way showers on the path of sisterhood and service. As a big sister you will have an invaluable opportunity to grow your personal interconnected web of sister support by bonding with new first year Medicine Mandala Apprentices. You will build experience in sharing your gifts and professional references for your event production resume. You will also have an opportunity to practice navigating the myriad social dynamics that naturally arise in the process of creating together as a community using the tools provided.

Second and Third year apprentices are considered staff and work in shifts to join us in co-creating the container for first year apprentices healing to unfold within. Big sisters become proficient in navigating the veils and mature as medicine people by being challenged to operate in multiple capacities simultaneously. You may be called upon to lead a song, a class or harvest a chicken, support a sister emotionally or empty the dry toilets. Medicine Mandala Apprentices embrace the full spectrum of phenomenon arising as nurturing growth opportunities. Big sisters are guaranteed attendance to one 3 hour guest facilitator workshop of choice per gathering, and may choose to audit other content or relax, rest, or socialize when not on duty.
