“For me undertaking the Medicine Woman Certificate in Advanced Shamanic Studies© program has been profoundly transformative and deeply healing. Working with each master teacher plant one on one throughout the lunar cycle allowed me to gain a greater understanding of each teacher plant’s individual lessons and capacities – both therapeutically and spiritually – while cementing my own sacred relationship with the master teacher plants. They are indeed my allies.
Passing through the 24 sacred rites of passage of the master shaman has unpicked and rewoven the very fabric of who I am. The whole program was like a complete upgrade, shedding and reset. It was hard. A lot harder mentally and emotionally than I thought it would be. However the master teacher plants gave me the tools I needed as I confronted all that was being brought up for me to learn and heal, transmute and transcend…. which was a lot! They helped me get energetically strong and shielded and grounded. They helped me to step deeper into my true cosmic self and realign with my sacred role on Earth, giving me much needed skills and a greater capacity in myself going forward on my mission.
After publishing my survival memoir I found stripping myself bare in print, giving author talks and interviews, dealing with social media, and connecting with many hundreds of women about their horror stories took a tremendous toll on my mental health and equilibrium. I became overwhelmed with the enormity of the uphill battle to make a positive difference in the world. I was disillusioned, drained, anxious, and stressed.
Even though I’d done many years of personal healing and deep spiritual work, and educated myself so much on shamanic, energetic, and natural medicine, I lost the peace and inner stability I’d worked so hard for. I lost my grace and equilibrium. I could no longer handle pressure or contain or control my emotions, and a deep hidden rage and resentment began to bubble up and pour out of me. I wasn’t coping. I felt disconnected and discombobulated. I couldn’t go on as I was.
I knew I needed to come home to myself. So I enrolled in the Medicine Woman Certificate in Advanced Shamanic Studies©. I was worried about the cost but I took a leap of faith. It was the best decision I could have made. The content and lessons are life changing. I love the format and how easily accessible and user friendly the Medicine Woman online school is to navigate. It feels like such a beautiful and safe sacred space even though it’s online. I love the support from Franchelle and the classroom elders on the journey and the extra resources available too.
This program helped me consciously work through long-held pain and fears that were holding me back. I felt nurtured and supported the whole way and have come through it feeling whole, strong, and purposeful, with greater clarity and direction within myself and my place in the world 100% comfortable with who I am.
Completing the Medicine Woman Certificate in Advanced Shamanic Studies© helped me reclaim my self and surrender to the path of spirit with unwavering trust and commitment. I stand in my power as a Medicine Woman Rainbow Warrior of Peace and Master Shamaness.
I am eternally grateful for this opportunity and journey. Much aroha”
