|The Integrative Fertility and Reproductive Medicine Mentorship Program Oct 2022||Acupuncture for Surviving Adversity||MAMPS 2022||Practice at the Crossroads: Acupuncture, Alchemy, Spirituality, and Healing|
The best learning comes from being able to interact with the teachers and your peers in your program. Our profession is one of the few health professions without an internship… The Healthy Seminars solution is mentorship from senior practitioners.
Each program will have a start and finish date where you can do some self-paced learning as well as interact with peers and the teachers. A great chance to ask questions as you work through the material and review case studies too. It is basically a hybrid model where you watch some live and recorded lectures plus the teachers and assistants will have office hours to review case studies in real-time as well as a forum to discuss the material with each other and ask for input on cases.
This is a great opportunity to receive and offer peer support and to gain confidence and deeper understanding through mentorship.

Waking up is hard to do. In Benjamin’s work as an astrologer, he leans into the wisdom of the cosmos, looking to the ancient language of the stars to help people know themselves more deeply, to discover meaning in the inevitable challenges of embodiment, and ultimately to actualize their potential in crafting a purposeful life.
