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 completed during simultaneous enrollment in the Fundamentals of Medical Herbalism and Advanced Herbalism Programs. After these studies, students may continue with the clinical portion where they will submit cases in which Flower Essences are dispensed and recommended. The Flower Essence Director will review and comment on each case.
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.
The program is open to advanced graduates or any past clinical students.
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.
