APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM WITH CATHERINE YRONWODE

The Hoodoo and Conjure Apprenticeship Program with catherine yronwode is a FREE three-week series of lectures, personal training, and hands-on guidance in the history and use of conjure supplies.

The Apprenticeship Program provides three five-day work-weeks of hands-on training in the practice of conjure. The training is given in three one-week intervals around the calendar of the year.

There are three lecture classes during each week, taught by me, and two work-days during each week, supervised by the Lucky Mojo Shop Manager Robin Petersen.

In order to participate in the Apprenticeship Program you must be a Graduate in good standing of my Hoodoo Rootwork Correspondence Course.

Apprentices are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement with me, the teacher.

APPRENTICESHIP SCHEDULE

May Apprenticeship Program

Each year, during the week preceding the May Hoodoo Workshops sponsored by Missionary Independent Spiritual Church, we hold a week of Apprenticeship training, and the curriculum of that week rotates throughout the three-week cycle, so that within three years, a graduate can take all three weeks of Apprenticeship training and earn an Apprenticeship certificate.

May 2009 Week One
May 2010 Week Two
May 2011 Week Three
May 2012 Week One
May 2013 Week Two
May 2014 Week Three
May 2015 Week One

Additional Apprenticeship Weeks

In addition to the rotating May Apprenticeship Weeks, we teach other Apprenticeship Weeks at intervals throughout the year, both in response to requests from groups of graduates who make plans to attend en masse, and as part of our own in-shop employee training program. (All Lucky Mojo employees are expected to become HRCC Graduates and to complete the Apprenticeship training.)

The rotation of Apprenticeship Weeks allows interested Apprentices who are not shop employees to pick up their training more rapidly than once a year in May. Apprenticeships have been given since 2005.

From 2003 through 2012, out of 1,800 enrolled Hoodoo Rootwork Correspondence Course students, about 350 have turned in their Homework and graduated -- and are eligible for free Apprenticeship training.

From 2005 through 2013, about 35 Graduates have gone on to complete the three-week hands-on Apprenticeship Training.

Week One: May 11 - May 15, 2013 (scheduled)

A minimum of six Apprentices is required to organize an Apprenticeship Week outside the regularly scheduled weeks in Late April - Early May of each year. Ten Apprentices is the optimal number, fifteen is the maximum.

The only Apprenticeship Week that is calendar-delimited is Week One; it deals with Herbs and cannot be reliably taught during the Winter months of November through February.


APPRENTICESHIP CURRICULUM

The Lucky Mojo Apprenticeship curriculum consists of nine lecture classes of 3 - 4 hours each, and nine hands-on training sessions of 3 - 5 hours each. These sessions are organized into three one-week blocks, referred to as Week One, Week Two, and Week Three. Apprentices need not take the three weeks of sessions in order, although that is recommended.

Week One: Herbs, Candles, Special Waters
Monday: Herb Lecture, Identifying and Harvesting Herbs
Tuesday: Harvesting, Dehydrating, and Packing Herbs
Wednesday: Candle Lecture; Dressing Candles
Thursday: Labelling, Dressing, and Fixing Candles
Friday: Special Waters Lecture, Making Specials

Week Two: Oils; Incenses; Mojo Hands
Monday: Oils and Salves Lecture; Making Oils
Tuesday: Making, Labelling, and Praying Over Oils
Wednesday: Incenses Lecture; Making Incenses
Thursday: Making and Praying Over Incenses
Friday: Mojo Hand Lecture; making Mojo Hands

Week Three: Baths; Sachets; Jack Balls
Monday: Bath Crystals Lecture; Making Bath Crystals
Tuesday: Making and Praying Over Bath Crystals
Wednesday: Sachets Lecture; Making Sachets
Thursday: Making and Praying Over Sachets
Friday: Jack Balls Lecture; Making Jack Balls

Also included in the curriculum for each Apprenticeship Week are two celebratory and community-building meals, which are free of charge to the Apprentices and at which attendance is required:

Wednesday Apprenticeship Potluck Lunch
A buffet-style lunch for all Apprentices and Lucky Mojo Staff; food and drinks are catered by the entire Lucky Mojo Staff.

Thursday Apprentice's Dinner
A sit-down dinner is catered on Thursday night by Robin Petersen, the Lucky Mojo Shop Manager.

The Apprenticeship Curriculum is tight and intensive. It runs from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, during shop hours, with 1/2 hour allowed for lunch each day except Wednesday, which has a 45 minute lunch break called the Apprenticeship Lunch, an obligatory event at which Apprentices meet and mingle with Lucky Mojo staff. There is also an obligatory Apprenticeship Dinner during the week, catered by Sister Robin Petersen.

Due to the tight teaching and training schedule, we ask Apprentices to not shop the store while apprenticing or after hours. You are welcome to shop during your lunch break, or to submit a shopping list when you arrive and your goods will be ready to be rung up during one of your lunch breaks or, if the order is a large one, it will be ready for you to check out on the Saturday morning following your Apprenticeship week.

If you and your fellow Graduates would like to receive Apprenticeship training and think you can mass together enough people, please contact Robin Petersen about organizing a non-May Apprenticeship session. If she feels there is sufficient interest and agrees to form an Apprenticeship Week, it will be announced in the Lucky Mojo Forum and in the hrcourse, hrc-grads, and AIRR Yahoo groups well in advance so that attendees can make travel plans.


COST OF THE APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM

The Apprenticeship Program is free because it has been organized by me as a work-exchange program, with the paid help of Lucky Mojo shop staff and the non-compensated participation myself as the teacher.

As a work-exchange program, the Apprenticeship is one in which trainees are expected to give us as many dedicated hours of labour as we provide in training. That is, for each full or half day of lecture and hands-on training provided by the teacher and shop staff to the Apprentice, a full or half day of labour will be provided to the shop by the Apprentice in exchange.

For each class or category of work in which training is received (e.g. herbs, candles, oils, etc.) the Apprentice will be able to take home one example of what he or she has made (e.g. one bottle of oil, one candle, one package of incense), at no cost for materials. The retail value of these goods, at the end of three weeks of Apprenticeship training, is more than $100.00

Apprentices are expected to take care of their own housing and meals for the duration of their Apprenticeship, aside from the two celebratory meals which we provide at no cost.

After having completed all three weeks of the Program, a certificate is issued to the Apprentice, stating completion of the Apprenticeship; there is no cost for this certificate.

Just as HRCC Graduates are permitted and encouraged to identify themselves to other students and to the public by the use of the letter "G" after their Student ID numbers, so are those who have received an Apprenticeship certificate permitted and encouraged to identify themselves to other students and to the public by the use the letters "GA" after their Student ID numbers.


THINGS TO CONSIDER

No "drop in" Apprentices will be accepted for training. Attendees must sign up in advance with Robin Petersen in order to attend.

In order to benefit from and participate in this course, you will need to be able to

  • Walk over rough garden ground.

  • Refrain from eating or drinking for about three hours at a time.

  • Sit at a table for several hours at a time.

  • Lift at least 5 lbs.

  • Be tolerant of dogs and cats in your vicinity.

  • Commit to attendance at the Apprenticeship Lunch and Apprenticeship Dinner. If you must hire a baby-sitter or dog-sitter, be prepared to do so. These two meals are PART OF THE APPRENTICESHIP.

In addition, you should be aware of these factors:

  • You will be outdoors much of the time and should bring with you and have available to you appropriate clothing to wear for both indoor and outdoor activities.

  • You should bring a lunch on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, as only 1/2 hour is allowed for lunch on those days. On Wednesday a 45 minute sit-down lunch is provided and you will be expected to attend.

  • You should show up promptly at 9:00 AM and be prepared to stay until 5:00 PM each day, and to stay for the Apprenticeship Dinner on Thursday evening.

  • You should not expect an area free from insects or an air-conditioned environment.

  • No smoking, drinking of alcohol, or use of recreational drugs is permitted at the Apprenticeship lectures, work-sessions, or meals.

  • If you are colour-blind, you should let us know in advance; this does not disqualify you from participation, but the tasks you are given may be slightly modified to accommodate your lack of colour acuity.

  • If you have special dietary restrictions, tell Robin Petersen and she will accomodate your needs at the Apprenticeship Lunch and Apprenticeship Dinner.
