The start date of the next Womb Medicine Woman Training is 23rd September 2020.
Live online workshop’s are on Wednesday’s at 16:00 London Time.
The workshops run every two weeks during term time and attendance is required to pass the course.
If you miss one due to illness, it is required that you watch the replay and write your comments/reflections before the next circle.
They last around 1 hour 45 minutes, sometimes this is a little shorter and sometimes a little longer.
You need to allow 2 hours for the live calls so that you have time to ground afterwards.
We meet through Zoom and can all see and hear each other.
You’ll need a pair of headphones – standard Apple style are good.
You’ll also need to meet from a private space and be on your laptop or desktop on a stable surface
You will get access to the Online Moon Lodge from 1st September in order to complete your orientation, a short Self-Initiation Medicine Bundle and start exploring the practices in the resource library and the Sisterhood Skills.
After the fist live workshop, each Medicine Bundle will be released every 4 to 6 weeks.

You will be meeting up with another woman on the course weekly during term-time.
Each Medicine Bundle contains a Moon Sister Practice along with a guidance sheet.
Meetings last up to an hour and are online.
Pairings will be changed each Medicine Bundle.

When you join The Womb Medicine Woman Training, you are eligible for a 60-day unconditional refund of any payments made – minus your non-refundable deposit amount of £270. This policy begins from the 1 September and includes any payments made prior to then (excluding the amount deemed as deposit – this is £270, the equivalent of 2 monthly payments).
You will have 60 days from the 1st September to exit the course and provide us with a written request for a refund.
We require that you take part in an exit interview with Melanie prior to releasing your funds.
After 60 days, you are no longer eligible for a refund, and any requests made for one will not be honoured, under any circumstances.
60 days allows you time to attend the first 2 live online workshops, work through the first – and part of the second Medicine Bundle, participate in Moon Sister calls, have a 1:1 with Melanie and do some of the practices in the Library. By then you will have a good taste of what we’re doing . It’s also a time for us to evaluate your ability to do the work.
We also expect students to abide by the student agreement (Sisterhood Code) outlined in your student handbook, accessable from 1st September.
We reserve the right to remove you from the course, at any point, if we determine you are not ready or suitable for the program or are not abiding by the student agreements. Should this occur within the first 60 days, your payments up until that point (excluding your non-refundable deposit) will be refunded, provided it is within the first 60 days.
If this occurs after the first 60 days, your right to a refund will be forfeited and you will remain obligated to make all remaining payments.
Your investment into The Womb Medicine Woman Training does not end with your financial payment. An investment of time and energy are required, and if you are selected to be part of the program, you are expected to participate fully. It takes consistent work, commitment and steady practice. This is not a practitioner training that is full of information and practices that you will simply copy and implement. Whilst there are techniques, processes and practices that you can of course utilise, this is a deeply experiential training in which the first year is focused on your own healing process.
