In honor of your dedication and respect for the Way of Life offered through Worsley Five-Element Acupuncture, you are hereby invited to participate in the Master Apprentice Program, “MAPSM”.
Professor JR Worsley’s (“JR”) teachings are a continuation of an oral tradition thousands of years old, rooted in Natural Order. It was passed to him by his Masters who, in turn, anointed him “Master”. JR’s intention and profound devotion was to transmit this tradition to future generations. He predicted accurately that humans would attempt to impose a human-contrived order of rule. Despite human endeavor, Natural Laws prevail, and the purity and power of Worsley Five-Element Acupuncture remains as poignant and relevant as ever.
JR was joined in this mission by his wife, Judy; together, they worked tirelessly toward preserving this lineage. With that goal in mind, they created in 1997 the Master Apprentice Program (MAP). This program was very successful and well-respected; it was by invitation only and required 100% attendance. Those invited to participate were experienced practitioners dedicated to ongoing study, growth, and development.
After JR’s death, MAP continued but was gradually modified so as to welcome a wider audience and was, therefore, less rigorous in terms of entry requirements and ongoing commitment. Over time, from feedback from our community and the need to have a succession plan in place so that this lineage thrives for generations to come, we are reverting to MAP’s original structure and intention.
MAP resumed in January 2021 as an invitation-only three-year program that meets once per year. Participants will enroll in the complete three-year program so that as a cohesive group they can work and grow together throughout the three years. MAP is the place for dedicated Worsley Five-Element Practitioners to gather, learn, and deepen their clarity within the practice of WF-EA. We want you to join us.
Our vision of MAP is a place for each practitioner to discover the power of practicing Worsley Five-Element Acupuncture authentically, truly a Way of Life.
- In 2021, we will start with a group of participants who will sign up for a full three-year program which meets once per year.
- The updated program dates are:
- Session 1: January 16-17, 2021 Zoom Session
- Session 2: June 12, 2021 Zoom Session
- Session 3: August 29, 2021 Zoom Session
- Session 4: October 30-November 2, 2021 in-person session will be held at Playa Del Sol in Los Barriles, Baja California Sur Mexico.
- Session 5: April 4-8, 2022 in-person session will be held at West Lexham, Kings Lynn, Norfolk, UK.
- Session 6: April 22-25, 2023 in-person session will be held at Playa Del Sol in Los Barriles, Baja California Sur Mexico.
- This cohort of qualified practitioners will grow together through these three sessions; new participants will not be admitted to MAP during these three years.
MAP will be an avenue for practitioners to hone themselves as instruments of nature. You will be surrounded by dedicated practitioners such as yourself and working as a group to grow. Throughout the three years, you will be supported by a leadership team comprised of Judy Worsley with additional support from David Berkshire, Eric Hartmann, and a coaching team.
The total tuition for the three sessions will be $2600.00 USD. Initial payment of $1500.00 will be due February 1st, 2020. Second payment of $550.00 will be due on February 1st, 2022. Third and final payment of $550.00 will be due on February 1st, 2023.
Lodging and food cost will be an additional fee and will vary depending on location. We will do everything we can to keep lodging and food costs reasonable.
For MAP 2021 & 2023 you will book directly with Playa Del Sol Resort for your lodging. Food will be on your own at local restaurants and on-site at the resort. A list of registrants will be made available to all participants in case you prefer to arrange double or triple occupancy to reduce lodging costs. Once you have registered information will be emailed to you.
For MAP 2022 you will book room and meals through Worsley Institute.
Given this is a closed group (no additional admissions will be allowed after the initial cohort enrolls), refunds will not be possible, and you will be responsible for the full course tuition amount of $2600.00 once you enroll in the course.
