Celebrating 35 Years of Shamanic Herbal Apprentices, contd.




1987: That is Robin Rose Bennett, apprentice number seven, holding up her hand. She is the author of two books, she teaches herbal medicine and sometimes accepts apprentices, and she does stunning work in community gardens. We are bound by our love for each other and by our mutual love for our Canadian friends Daphne and Keyawis, bringer of peace. Hugs and kisses to you.          


White Feather is on the other side of me, wearing a black head scarf. She has taught at the Wise Woman Center every year of its existence and has interacted with the majority of the apprentices. She is my Wolf Clan sister; we share adoption by Grandmother Twylah Nitsch, of the Seneca Nation. With grandmother’s blessing, White Feather has put out a book and video on the Seven Directions Movement Meditation. Two over from White Feather is Savatri. In front of her, with her knee up, is Jane La Force.





Jane la Force was notable for bringing her own goats’ milk with her whenever she would return for a visit. (And it has been too long since the last visit.) She says my goats don’t eat as much poison ivy as her goats so her goats’ milk offers her more protection against the rash. Jane taught herbal medicine and kept a big homestead for many years, but I don’t know what she is up to these days.
