Our Apprenticeships help you experience the meaning of the term Be-Wilder as it is defined by feminist author Mary Daly. She defines this term as to “lead the self and others on pixie-paths that wind deeper into the unknown; to hear and follow the call of the wild.”
These programs include guidance on your personal journey, use of our extensive library, materials, whole and wild food meals, and discounts on other programs. This program is for women only* and provides a unique space to explore the invisible feminine that our culture often asks us to forget.
We will connect with the wise woman within while hiking, kayaking, dancing, harvesting, creating community, crafting traditional foods and medicines, practicing compassionate communication, sitting in talking stick ceremony, exploring nature awareness and learning a wide variety of skills including but not limited to cordage making, basket weaving, broom making, hide tanning and much more!
*Male students are invited to work with Linda through independent study and are invited to remember their own unique relationship to the feminine through a connection with the green world. Feel free to inquire.

“I wanted to take some time to reflect on my apprenticeship experience and to express my appreciation and new found feeling of empowerment. The herbal apprenticeship exceeded my expectations in terms of meeting my need for connection. I had no idea how nourishing it could be to spend the day with supportive honest women each week. I look forward to continuing on my herbal/personal/spiritual journey and seeing what surprises and blessings I find along the spiral!”
