Course Requirements

Please bring a pillow to sit on, pens/pencils (be prepared to take lots of notes!), a bag lunch, and something precious to you to include in the meditation circle on the morning of day 2 (e.g., stone, piece of jewelry, picture). To receive certification, you must write a 6 page paper (double spaced) on an essence of your choice.

You have 3 months from the date of the class to submit the paper…but we strongly recommend that you not take that long. You can include information on the history of the essence, where and how it is produced, information on conditions, symptoms it addresses, personal experiences (your own, your clients or family) with the essence, pictures, poems, stories, etc. Please include a simple bibliography on your sources as part of the paper. It is YOUR paper and you are sharing YOUR personal experience and learning.

By submitting the paper, you are giving Wisdom of the Earth permission to excerpt sections from the paper for instructional use in our Newsletter and/or Website. Please be sure to include your name (as you would like it to appear on your certificate), address, telephone number and email address on the COVER PAGE of the paper. Also include a check for $35 payable to Wisdom of the Earth for the certification administrative fee. Once you have submitted your paper, you are eligible for Wholesale Distributor pricing on Wisdom of the Earth essential essences, a 22% discount off the practitioner price. Also, you are entitled to audit future Level 1 seminars (space permitting) at no cost, but you MUST register to do so.
