Frequently Asked Questions
Are Medicine Woman programs suitable for men?
Yes. Medicine Woman refers to a state of consciousness or a way of thinking – it’s a way of living and being on the planet as opposed to specifically referring to the gender of an individual.
All Medicine Woman programs are suitable for both men and women. We have the pleasure of having quite a number of men undertaking our programs.
Male or female, young or old, if you seek to reconnect with the magic of nature and the power of the ancients in your everyday life, you will find that Medicine Woman programs have something to offer you.
Do I have to start with the Rite of Six Moons before undertaking a Healers or Shamanic program?
No. While the recommended spiritual magical pathway starts with Rite of the Six Moons and progressing though to the Certificate in Advanced Shamanic Studies, all Medicine Woman programs can be undertaken in any order that suits you.
Can I enrol into two programs at the same time?
Yes, you can. While the recommended spiritual magical pathway starts with Rite of the Six Moons and progressing though to the Certificate in Advanced Shamanic Studies, all Medicine Woman programs can be undertaken in any combination and order that appeals to you.
How is the teaching provided?
The teaching is provided in a number of different ways, with each being vitally important part of the program and very carefully structured to ensure that you gain maximum learning in the physical as well as the metaphysical realm.
During the course of the program you will be working dynamically and cooperatively with the remarkable intelligence of the highly esteemed New Zealand native teacher plants that have stepped forward as your wise elders, teachers and initiators.
You will have access to comprehensive Cyber Scrolls, Cyber Docs and Videos relevant for your studies.
Medicine Woman Online School also provides a great platform for connecting with other students, sharing and learning.
Is there support during the length of the program?
Yes, Medicine Woman Online School provides comprehensive support for all students enrolled into Medicine Woman programs.
Within the Medicine Woman Online School you will have access to multiple areas, including the Common Room where you can connect with the elders and all other students, specialised Classrooms where you can engage with others and share your experiences with your fellow students who are doing the same program. The Library and Program Content areas are where you can view videos and download pdfs. The Ask Franchelle area is where you can submit your questions to Franchelle and read answers to all previously asked questions.
Do I have to purchase all the teacher plant essences prior to starting a program?
No. The first lunar month of each program is a preparation month. During this month you will not be dieting any teacher plant essences. You can purchase all the required essences prior to the program, if you wish. Or you can purchase them as you go, in which case you will need to make sure that you always have the correct essences available prior to the new moon (quarter moon for Rite of the Six Moons).
What does 'dieting' mean?
Each lunar month (quarter moon for Rite of the Six Moons) you will work with a different teacher plant essence taking a specified number of drops of the teacher plant essence at various times daily.
