In this integrative, Level 1 professional certification, students will have the opportunity to focus firstly on their own holistic health through development of a precise map of the human energy anatomy, a personal practice and deepening awareness and self- care. They then apply knowledge gained through first hand experience and self study in a clinical environment.

This group experience is deeply supported for each individual, through shared intention, universal grace and wise counsel from peers as well as the facilitator. Part of the intricate beauty of this training is that it emphasizes the unique ability of each student, supporting the individual in understanding and developing their own innate gifts- aligning through deep health with their Souls purpose, in service of the greater good.

Perfect for:

  • Individuals who want to solely focus on energy healing
  • Students who have completed Fundamental, Traditional, or Clinical Herbalism classes
  • Community herbalists
  • Healing practitioners (example: massage therapists) who want to add new modalities of healing to their services
  • Spa owners and employees
  • Spiritual guides and those who practice magical herbalism, shamanism, and other spiritual studies

What You Will Learn:

Class includes many hours of hands on practice integrating herbal wisdom, vibrational plant medicine, and whole foods lifestyle with energy healing protocols from Tibetan and Usui Reiki, Soul Focused Healing, and Polarity. Students will also be required to complete clinical hours outside of class.

Graduates receive a 225 hour certificate and may be invited by the instructor to continue with Advanced Energy Healing upon completion of the course.

NOTE: A sustained meditation practice is recommended for participation in this class. A phone or in person interview will be required.

Flower Essence Certification

Course Length: 10 months, meets one Sunday a month for 10 months (9:30-5:30)

Imagine spending nearly a year cultivating a very intimate relationship with the plants, in a way that deeply serves the people in your life and empowers your healing practice. Whether you are a clinical herbalist, an energy healer, a body worker, a parent, an animal lover, or just a person navigating your own journey with healing, this certification course will give you tools you will turn to for the rest of your life. Flower essences are safe and subtle plant remedies that heal at the deepest level- the causal level of disease. Flower essences are also very effective tools for becoming awakened, conscious humans. Furthermore, flower essences could easily be called the most sustainable form of herbal medicine. The perfect medicine for our times!
In this program, students will become well versed in flower essence therapy, making dozens of flower essences themselves, to kick start their home or office apothecary. We will also cultivate professional, clinical skills such as inner listening, communication, ethics and healthy boundaries. Most importantly, we will spend many of our hours together in the classroom of nature, learning to trust our ability to communicate with the plants, to understand the immense complexity of their medicines, and to become humble students of these most potent and abiding teachers.
Students will also have some take home work in association with class, including flower essence consultations with friends and family, to be turned into the instructor.
