Center for Eclectic Alchemy

Sage Moon LLC, Center for Eclectic Alchemy, is currently in the process of creating a formal apprenticeship program.  This page was created to give a little peek inside the process and to learn more about it, for folks that may be considering a formal apprenticeship with Sage Moon LLC.  

What is the apprenticeship program?

The Center for Eclectic Alchemy apprenticeship program is intended to be a program that provides education and training in Eclectic Alchemy, which includes herbal medicine, flower essence therapy, and intuitive energetic bodywork.  It will operate in a hybrid fashion that utilizes both in person experiences and virtual online experiences.  Upon completion of the program, apprentices should have foundational experience to add to their existing practice or to begin exploring the idea of opening their own private practices.  

Who is the apprenticeship program for?

The Apprenticeship program is for individuals who want training and education in Eclectic Alchemy to enhance their lives, to enhance their existing private practice, or to serve as the foundation for a future practice.

It is helpful for potential apprentices to have some foundation in the field of wellness. This may be in allopathic care, energetic bodywork, herbal medicine, flower essence therapy, massage, etc.  

How will the program flow?

This is something that is still in the creation and design process.  The current base structure is coming together as a program that is structured into 4 chapters that will be presented in 3 month time blocks.  Each subject, herbal medicine, flower essence therapy, and energetic bodywork, will have their block, with the last block being on weaving it all together into practice, which will include putting your studies into practice with clientele, possibly through onsite community clinics. 

The current plan is for apprenticeship meetings to be held online live or in person 2 times a month.  Meeting twice monthly provides a continual flow of learning and new materials, and time to process it.  

Of course, this base structure may change during the designing process.

How long is the program and how much will it cost?

While the program is still in the creation and design process, the plan is that the program is a year long.  Upon completion of the program, apprentices may request another apprenticeship to continue their learning.

The price is yet to be determined and will depend on how the program flows, how many meeting there are, as well as additional resources needed such as supplies, books, and other materials.  Looking at what the current structure is, the cost will likely be between $4,000 and $6,000 with the possibility of additional costs for supplies, books, and other materials. 

Will apprentices receive any sort of certification upon completion of the program?

This is something that is yet to be decided.  Apprentices, upon completion, of the program (or each chapter segment) may receive certificates of completion, to show as a sign for the  hours and programs they have successfully completed.  

Please be aware that any certificates only hold value to show completion of the program/hours and holds no weight other than that.  

There is no governing body of Eclectic Alchemy and any certificates will be in house created certificates.  

Where will the apprenticeships take place?

The Apprenticeship program will take place both online and in person. The hope is that there will be a  group of 4 to 8 apprentices who begin at the same time.  Group programs work very well, as the experiential learning is broader.  

Some portions of the program, such as the Herbal Medicine chapter, can be done completely online via live classes and self paced studies.  Other portions, such as the Energetic Bodywork chapter, are best taught in person.  

In person segments will take place in Cherryfield, Maine.  

When will the program be available?

The plan is for the program to be opened in the Spring or Summer of 2023.  Before the program opens, a physical structure will need to be constructed as a place to hold the program.  When the program becomes available will largely be determined by when the structure will be completed.

How can I sign up for the program?

Since the program is still in the creation and design processes, sign up is not currently available.  However, if you are interested in participating in a formal apprenticeship, you can reach out by email to sagemoonalchemy@gmail.com to express your interest and you will be put on a list.
