The Earth Wisdom Apprenticeship: an experiential journey into Indigenous earth medicine and vibrational healing. ~ with Marza Millar

Learn the foundations of Indigenous earth wisdom with this unique, experiential 9-month apprenticeship with Nationally known teacher and Medicine Woman, Marza Millar. Marza will guide a small group of apprentices into a deep immersion of plant spirit medicine and vibrational healing, working directly with the forces of nature, the plants, moon, sun and earth tides to learn how to heal human and ancestral conditions.

This apprenticeship is designed for those with a solid maturity and genuine interest in deepening the exploration of the self and the unseen. In this study of plant spirit medicine, you will learn about your own energetic patterns, how they interface with others, and how to alter them to support healing the body and disease.

The full human experience of healing will be explored from multiple dimensions.

We will start with the beginning understanding that we have fields of energy and frequency running through our bodies everyday playing havoc with our health just like the toxins put in our food, air and water. We will be exploring with the understanding if we treat the body with plant medicines to heal, we must treat the frequency and bio electric fields around as well which can also cause disease, depression and emotional imbalance.

During the full 9 month course, we will be working with these energies, earth dowsing, and recognizing energetic patterns for such illnesses as cancer, depression, bipolar, addiction, mental illness.

While there is a comprehensive curriculum that will be covered, be prepared for a non-linear journey of exploration into numerous indigenous traditions, with a wide variety of learning modalities, including hands-on, experiential learning, lecture, field classes, storytelling, and more.

Participants will create a personalized vibrational essence kit made from flowers, trees, and minerals and make herbal and energetic essence tinctures, salves and balms. There will be study in the basic plant medicine as well as opportunities to develop clinical skills for starting or expanding an herbal practice.

Here is a sampling of course topics:

  • The Medicine Wheel
    • Plant spirit medicine
    • Medicine making
    • Biodynamic calendar & basic biodynamics

This course runs from November to July, meeting one weekend a month. Four weekends will include field classes in the Eastern Sierras, High Sierras and the coast. On these field trips we will visit the oldest living plant on earth (5,000 years), make a vibrational imprint medicine, and gather different vibrational waters to make your medicines.Marza has been offering this apprenticeship course for many years, and this is the fourth year she will be partnering with HAALo as administrator for logistics and support for the entire apprenticeship. We are very excited about this continuing partnership!

“Marza is engaging, inspiring, and carries ancient wisdom.” – Dixie H

“I have learned so much about the old ways of living in co-creation with our planet from Marza - it is a vast understatement to say it has changed my life! Marza's way of sharing her knowledge through sitting in circle, storytelling and dirt time are a testament to her understanding of the Earth and Earth-based traditions - what she has taught me couldn't be read in books or heard in lectures.” – Tiffany H

“The Earth Wisdom apprenticeship class expanded my capabilities in comprehending and implementing deeper healing in myself, loved ones and clients. Marza gently encourages students in expanding their knowledge and perceptions by learning frequency medicine in harmony with the plant medicines, mineral beings and shamanic practices. The hours invested in the classroom, lab and on field trips birthed within me a profound life changing realignment with the energies of the Earth. With Marza's guidance I got my feet back on the ground, expanded my heart and walk Mother Earth with a renewed spirit." – Andrea R

"I have been a spiritual guide and teacher for over 20 years, and I have found Marza Millar to be one of the wisest and most powerful teachers I have ever encountered. Having been on several sacred journeys with Marza, I have complete and total trust in her guidance, her teaching and her capabilities. She has taken me to places both physically and spiritually that I had never been before, and has greatly enriched my life in the process.. Among her many talents, is an ability to make people feel safe while expanding their consciousness - a mark of a great healer and teacher. Above all, she is deeply committed to helping others wholeheartedly, with tremendous compassion and humility. I always look forward to my next experience with Marza, knowing that it will expand the world as I know it and enhance my sense of my own self." – Grace

“I have been studying with Marza for the past three years. She has not only taught me an incredible amount about herbs and energetic medicine, but she has also deepened my relationship with the earth and myself. I have never been in a class that has had such a great impact on every aspect of my life. She truly embodies her teachings and is a powerful medicine woman that is a blessing to those that sit with her.” – Amara P

This class is taught by Grandmother Marza Millar, Elder by birth rite of the Wind Creek, Yavapai, Clinical Herbalist, CMT, and MA. Marza’s upbringing in earth-based medicine comes from her Birth Rite with the Wind Creek Yavapai on her father’s side. After receiving a formal education and working in allopathic medicine, Marza returned to her roots and has spent decades of her life training in various earth-based medicine traditions. Marza is responsible to the Wind Creek Yavapai to hold the Emergence door of the 4th world, located in Sedona, Arizona. Her mother’s people are from Isle of Skye, Scotland and Kilkenny, Ireland. Marza is also a Druid Elder of Clach Na h'Annait Standing Stone. She has been adopted and trained in both rites from birth. Marza also received training in the traditional teachings of Lemuria given by the Elders of Naapoopoo Village, Big Island, Hawaii.
