My favorite part of the training was delving more in depth about the flowers; not just what each essence is indicated for and what it can do, but also looking at the flower itself and learning how the flower's orientation, colors, and characteristics point towards its' uses. I loved learning about geometry found in nature and coming to a much deeper understanding of how humans and plants are so closely interconnected...
I have already seen tremendous benefits for my clients and I have greatly expanded my repertoire of remedies from the original 38 remedies in the Bach line of essences. The course work assisted me to more clearly verbalize and explain why certain remedies are chosen and to follow through with clients and have confirmation about how the remedy manifested in their lives. I feel better prepared to grow my business as I am better able to both hold space for clients and hold boundaries for myself and feel more grounded in my practice.

BSN, Yoga Teacher and Flower Essence Practitioner
The Magic & Medicine Flower Essence training was very hands on and experiential with field trips as well as client practitioner observations. I learned about the importance of being in tune with the flowers and learning what aspects of emotional well being they affect .This certification refined my understanding of archetypes as it relates to the flowers and our clients. In addition, it has improved my confidence and passion for this work. I feel that my approach to servicing my clients was enhanced and I gained more clarity of the importance of client connection with the flowers.
