"Tena koe Amy
I am happy to provide a course write up from my experiences at the apprenticeship course I attended in 2014. My experience started through pain and suffering I had just had a bad week with tooth ache and "tanked up" on antibiotics from the dentist, which were actually making me feel like......
My life excelled into another world through the Intervention of the spirit and my Tupuna as they directed me to Paihia I questioned why I would want to go to Paihia that particular day, but hearing the quiet voice saying "go to Paihia!" It was to so strong.... I followed through.
Amy you were right there in the doorway of the Paihia hall Our brief conversation and consult not only healed me but opened a pathway to learn and experience the apprenticship course I learnt so much from the course Particularly this, that pain was in fact my allie.
Being able to learn in a beautiful environment with sweet and beautiful people helped me gain confidence and appreciation of the taonga that papatuanuke provides for us all Communicating and connecting with the plants and trees was amazing, learning of their healing abilities and experiencing the group dynamics was fun I continue to make the tinctures and creams
If I could do this course again I would"
"I decided to do Amy McCombs Plant Rhythms Apprenticeship after completing my Naturopathic Degree and it was the best investment I made for myself at the time. I felt that Amy’s course brought me back to my own intuition when working with plants and people and gave me valuable wisdom on how to work on an intuitive level that honors nature and brings a sense of harmony when working with plants.
Amy’s plant knowledge and wisdom when it comes to helping people is inspiring, It helped me to develop my knowledge of wild foods, using plants in my daily life, cooking with wild foods, and learning more about the native species which was an area that i was keen to develop, it was empowering, although I had already practiced some herbal medicine, I felt that Amy’s course made it a wonderful practice that really honored the earth, bringing ritual and ceremony to our work.
I feel that this course has been an important part of my journey on both a personal and professional level. I left my course at Plant Rhythms with not only more wisdom but an incredible sense of sisterhood with all the wonderful people that I met during my time. I would recommend this course to anyone that truly wants to learn about mother earth with a true medicine women”.
