I received three different Graduation certificates (available under "Awards & Certificates" page), as well as my Lantern and Shamanic Elder beads. Caroline giggled, as she called me the "Youngest Elder" and fed me Elder berries!
This school was a life-changing experience. I started my education while still living in NYC, and traveled from Queens to DC and back at least 1-2 times per month. After over a year and a half of all that travel, I finally made the move down to Maryland, and had a much shorter commute (5 hours down to 1 hour!).
My dear friends and classmates have helped me through my Father's death, the ending of relationships, the changing of jobs, moving south, and adapting to a completely new way of life!
Although I have graduated from this school, my education is not at an end. I shall keep the focus of this blog, Tales from a Shamanic Apprentice, because I have so much more to experience. As I enter my Hermit phase of "learning in solitude" I hope to expand my knowledge of healing modalities, and figure out a way to combine my Spiritual Healing training with my Master's in Psychology and counseling techniques. I also want to increase my experience in Individual Healings, as I have worked with Caroline in numerous Group Healings.
But for now, it's celebration time! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!
