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, “MAPTM”.
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 (MAPTM). 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 will resume in April 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.
When we initially announced this goal, we asked that all participants have completed Teacher Training Basic and Advanced. As an organization, we have since reconsidered this position and have now chosen to extend the invitation to individuals dedicated to Worsley Five-Element Acupuncture regardless of their completion of Teacher Training.
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.
- MAP will be held once per year at the end of April.
- Our 2021 session (April 17-20) will be held at Playa Del Sol in Los Barriles, Baja California Sur Mexico.
- Our 2022 session (April 4-7) will be held at West Lexham, Kings Lynn, Norfolk, UK.
- Our 2023 session is being planned at a resort in Talum on the Yucatan Peninsula, 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.
- Each session will include four full days of class. The first session is scheduled for April 17-20, 2021.
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 and Hilary Skellon with additional support from David Berkshire, Eric Hartmann, and Annette Bagnall.
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. Depending on location, we are currently finding food and lodging costs in dorm rooms ranging from $500-800 for 5 nights, and we are finding private room food and lodging costing around $1200 for 5 nights. Double occupancy rooms are somewhere in the middle of those costs.
For MAP 2021 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.
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.
