Hi amithyzt,

Yes we meet again!

Please note that your interview with miss cat will be scheduled only after you complete your purchase requirements. It's a straightforward process and you are doing everything right.

Yes, learning directly from miss cat is a very valuable opportunity that you won't want to miss. I predict you'll do very well on the course and I'm looking forward to hearing about your progress.

Good luck!

Thanks for all the encouragement. I'll make sure I've read every link and every book, that every item has been ordered and I've worked a few conjures for myself and others before I proceed. It could take a month or two more because I find myself reading twice, but it's been incredible so far... :D

Finally completed my first attendance at an apprenticeship week! It was a LOT of intense learning and hard work! When the Tuesday numbers were added up and we had created over *1000* bottles of oil it was unbelievable. The format of alternating days of history/lecture and hands-on work creating products for the store is a good one. And happily we are able to keep one oil, one incense and one mojo of those we create, so I am very proud of the Black Cat oil, the House Blessing incense and Steady Work mojo kits I worked on, as well as the others I did. It makes me smile to look over at thee products and remember the intense experience of this last week.

I highly, highly recommend these apprenticeship weekends to every graduate of HRCC. It is not easy, it's a of note taking and hard work, but seeing Miss Cat's incredible collections of oils/salves, incenses and mojo pieces was an incredible treat. Miss Cat must be exhausted at the end of this week, and I thank her so very much for giving of her time to those of us who can attend. There were 11 of us including some employees at this training week.

Apprenticeship Logistics Question For Those Who Have Apprenticed

I'm delighted to have just booked airfare to sunny California to attend the 2018 apprenticeship week!

For those of you that flew to California for your apprenticeship training, did you rent a car or bike to get to and from the shop and your lodging? I looked at Lyft and Uber and they appear to be active in Forestville. Have folks had success with rideshare services like Lyft and Uber while apprenticing?

Thanks for the insight! I think I'll be able to get a place relatively close to the shop - but just need to figure out transit from SFO to Forestville and from my lodging to Santa Anna for the Hoodoo Heritage Festival (probably Lyft or Uber if I hear from y'all that it's reliable).

Thanks in advance for any insight y'all can provide.

April 2018 Apprenticeship:

Dates -- April 9 - 13th, 2018
Place -- 6632 Covey Road, Forestville, California
Curriculum: Week One: Herbs, Candles, Special Waters
Cost: FREE work-study program

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

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:

Monday 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.

Wednesday Apprentice's Dinner
A sit-down dinner is catered on Wednesday night by Heidi Simpson, 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 Monday, 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 Heidi Simpson.

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.

Please call ahead and let Leslie Lowell or Heidi know you will be attending so that we will have enough supplies on hand to train you!
