CSCH Application

The Bach Flower Essences Certificate Program provides the student with training necessary to become a certified Flower Essences Practitioner. Using the classical Bach Flower Essence set, as well as other Flower Essences from North America and the Desert Southwest, students study Materia Medica, energetics and applications, and flower essence preparation. The classroom portion of the program is completed during simultaneous enrollment in the Fundamentals of Medical Herbalism and Advanced Herbalism Programs or during the Flower Essence Evening Track. After completing the classroom portion, students may continue to the clinical portion where they will submit cases in which flower essences are recommended. Faculty mentors who are qualified in flower essence therapy will review and comment on each case. Flower Essence Round Table sessions, where students and faculty gather to evaluate cases, are held monthly throughout the clinical program.

The Flower Essence Evening Track offers the same flower essence classroom training received in the Fundamentals of Medical Herbalism and Advanced Herbalism programs, but is offered separately over a period of 5 weeks in early summer.  THE FLOWER ESSENCE EVENING TRACK WILL NOT BE OFFERED IN 2014.

Flower Essence Certification Program – Long Description

Flower Essences are gentle, yet powerful natural remedies that work to support our overall health in countless ways. Flower Essence therapeutics are ideal partners for a wide variety of health and healing modalities and often help an individual get more out of their health program and more out of life.

”The action of these remedies is to raise our vibrations and to flood our natures with the particular virtue we need, and wash out from us the fault that is causing the harm. They are able, like beautiful music or any glorious uplifting thing which gives us inspiration, to raise our very natures, and bring us nearer to our souls and by that very act to bring us peace and relief from our sufferings” ~ Edward Bach

The Flower Essence Certification Program offers foundational training in the use of flower essences in therapeutic settings and focuses on teaching intimate knowledge of the Bach Flower Essences, as well as other Flower Essences from North America and the Desert Southwest. Students study essence Materia Medica, energetics and applications, and flower essence preparation.

The FEC Program at the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism offers classroom and clinical training, and upon completion the student is awarded a Bach Flower Essence Certificate. The ideal student for the FEC Program would have already received some level of training in health consultations and be interested in incorporating flower essences into their area of focus. Flower essences are an ideal addition to herbal therapeutics, nutritional therapy, massage therapy, counseling and psychotherapy, acupuncture, physical therapy, naturopathy, nursing, and many other areas of health support.

The FEC Program offers flower essence classroom training over a period of 5 weeks. After completing the classroom portion, students continue to the clinical portion where they will submit cases in which flower essences are recommended. Faculty mentors who are qualified in flower essence therapy will review and comment on each case. Flower Essence Round Table sessions, where students and faculty gather to evaluate cases, are held monthly throughout the clinical program.

Classes meet Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6-9pm beginning May 7th and concluding on June 6th with one Saturday field trip on June 1st from 10am-5pm. The clinical portion runs from Sept to May. Flower Essence Round Table meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month from 3-5pm.  THE FLOWER ESSENCE EVENING TRACK WILL NOT BE OFFERED IN 2014.
