Flower essences are one of the most overlooked botanical preparations with profound healing implications for our world. Flower essences are an energetic preparation of flowers primarily used to address issues related to the emotions, mind and soul. They work on the various energy pathways such as the acupuncture meridians to create health and well-being on multiple levels. One of the most important aspects of flower essences is that they are a gentle, safe, efficacious and versatile remedy for the whole family at every stage of life.
Flower essences can be easily combined and integrated into many healthcare modalities, therapy, magic and ritual.
This online class will explore how our flower essences can help us move through overwhelm, trauma, anxiety, grief, and apathy, into passion, purpose, and collective healing. We'll delve into consciously partnering with these sweet blooms to reconnect to and open the heart, mend the mind, engage the spirit and nourish our bodies.
