The Bach Flower Essences Practitioner Certificate Program provides the student with the 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, applications, clinical skills, and flower essence preparation. The classroom portion of the program is offered as part of the Clinical Program or as a stand-alone class for Advanced Graduates.  

The program is broken up into monthly Flower Essence Round Table sessions, as well as 3 weekend intensives over the course of 9 months, where students and faculty gather to evaluate cases, practice clinical skills, and study materia medica. Upon completion, the student is awarded a Bach Flower Essence Certificate. 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.

"I highly recommend the flower essence program at Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism. Flower essences are an amazing therapeutic that can be used with any person or animal, and work well alone or in conjunction with herbal therapeutics (this is coming from someone that was VERY skeptical of FE when I was first introduced to it!). The faculty are incredible at teaching not just the history and science of the essences, but also assisting the students to develop an intuitive proficiency in the selection of essences specific for clients."

“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 gloriously 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”
