(for graduates of 2015 Advanced Certificate Program)
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 therapy program at CSCH was an invaluable addition to my personal growth as a health practitioner as well as an extraordinary skill for my private practice. Deanna skillfully led us through interview techniques, case studies and round table discussions that deepened our understanding of the beauty and profound effectiveness of using flower essence therapeutics as a stand alone practice and as a tool to weave together with other modalities. I naturally find myself using flower essences as I work with clients in my practice. It allows my client and myself to establish trust and deepen our connection as we explore the sometimes more complicated health issues that are addressed through nutrition and herbal medicine. I feel that my practice is well rounded and truly holistic because of my flower essence knowledge and understanding. I highly recommend this program to anyone with a clinical or holistic health practice, as well as to students pursing their clinical herbalism certificates. It’s an experience I will never forget. Deanna is a delightful, knowledgeable, approachable and trustworthy teacher and guide.”

This program prepares the graduate to offer consultations on the use of flower essences in retail or clinical settings.
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
