Years ago (it feels like a totally different life) I started an 4-years eduction to become a holistic vet. Together with a friend we signed up and started our first year. Every Tuesday morning we stepped in our car and drove 2 hours to our classes.
For a couple of reasons both of us ended the first year but decided not to finish this education.
- We learned a lot but also had a good laugh. After a class about herbs with a professor raising his hands to the sky telling us how the flowers of a plants sang to the sun every morning, we couldn’t stop laughing and had to leave the class halfway. I still after 12 years have to laugh about it. At that moment we knew we were not the kind of people to finish this. Don’t get me wrong. We both believe in the abilities of plants, herbs etc. We just not see them laughing, signing or feeling. Maybe the way we think is too logical.
- Second reason was that I would not be able to finish anyway because we decided to apply for permanent residency in Canada. Because it wasn’t very cheap to follow these classes it was no use for me to continue and my friend had no intention to do it alone. I have been looking around a bit to see if anything like that is offered here in Alberta but never really found something appropriate. Or it was ridiculous expensive.
- For me, last reason was that I didn’t saw myself as a holistic vet working in Canada. Knowing that a lot of educations were not accepted in Canada (even my husband had to redo his exams as civil engineer) why bother. I also knew that I had to be there for my kids for at least the first year to make the move to Canada work.
So no new career for me in that field. But working with herbs, oils, Bach, TTouch and horses was never forgotten. For now my new career is Young Living though.
Helping horses and dogs with holistic treatment will follow over time.
I am working on it.
