CONTEXT OF THE CURRENT MM APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAMME
Having offered 7 Apprenticeship programmes, Susannah and Ya’Acov have now trained some exceptional teachers to offer the Movement Medicine Apprenticeship Programmes. From now on, Apprenticeship programmes will be taught by a cohort of experienced and skilled Movement Medicine teachers who have completed all of the CPD (Continued Professional Development pathways) with Ya’Acov and Susannah.
WHAT IS THE MM APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAMME?
A Movement Medicine Apprenticeship is a deep sustained dive into applying Movement Medicine concepts and practice to oneself and one’s own life. It is a deep experience for those ready to make a commitment for the duration of the Apprenticeship journey to yourself and your peers. Apprenticeships are led by skilled guides who know this work inside out.
Completing an Apprenticeship does not qualify you to teach Movement Medicine. It is a deeply personal pursuit of applying this transformative work to the project of your own life.
However, completing the Apprenticeship Programme is a pre-requisite to any Professional Training in Movement Medicine.
THE MOVEMENT MEDICINE APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAMME IS FOR PARTICIPANTS WHO ARE READY TO:
- Integrate the practice, philosophy and application of Movement Medicine as ‘medicine for our times’ into their own lives
- Embrace life physically, emotionally, conceptually and spiritually, with its depth, heights and mystery.
- Make a difference in the world and walk their talk in all areas of life
- Embody who they are in all aspects of their lives
- Be part of a community of mutual flourishing and are willing and able to bring integrity, respect and kindness to self and others.
- Have a sense of humour about themselves and yet are serious about what they want to create in this life
AFTER COMPLETING THE APPRENTICESHIP, YOU MAY:
- Apply to continue onto the two-module Professional Training The next one begins in 2024. After the Professional Training, the next steps, after some time of practice, leads to Graduation. This can be enough in itself, or it can be the next stage of a longer journey, including CPD, for those who choose it. More about this here.
- Continue as a practitioner within the Apprenticeship community
- Go on your merry way wherever life leads you!
