Flower Essence Practitioner Certification Course + Clinical Mentorship
With Brooke Sullivan, Daisy Marquis and Amy Branum
July 13 - 15, 2018
Flower essences are vibrational remedies that assist in healing and evolutionary growth in the physical, mental and emotional realms. They are the perfect adjunct to holistic therapies such as Ayurveda, herbology, yoga therapy, acupuncture, and somatic psychology, as well as conventional professions such as teachers, counselors, nurse practitioners, and social workers. Flower essence therapy is a field that is currently growing exponentially, worldwide, and for a good reason. The flowers have tremendous healing potential that is unique, life-changing and reaches deeper into the subtle realms than many other healing modalities.
This foundational course will lay the groundwork for becoming a flower essence therapist. Students can expect to learn history, philosophy, the process of making flower essences from plant to bottle, preparing and distributing remedies, use of the materia medica, case studies, clinical experience, and mentor support. The course is broken down into a 3-day weekend at The Wild Temple Classroom in Grass Valley, California, plus the option to continue with the clinical portion of the certification: a 4 month internship August – November. This internship will include 3 hrs/month of clinical mentorship broken into 2 hours of case study discussion with the group and a 1-hour private meeting with your mentor (Brooke, Amy Branum or Daisy Marquis) either in person or via phone/Zoom video conferencing. Certification through The Wild Temple School of Yoga + Herbal Wisdom.
Brooke’s Background in Flower Essence Therapy
Brooke Sullivan has been a flower essence practitioner since 2000, largely devoting much of her time getting to know each plant and each remedy, one at a time. Her lineage of study comes from an amalgam of the Bach repertoire case studies as well as the flowers of Flower Essence Society (FES). Since earning her professional certification with FES in 2012, Brooke has incorporated some flower essence training into each of her yoga teacher training courses in Grass Valley, and has been bringing a group of these students to tour the Terra Flora Gardens each year and meet Patricia Kaminski and Richard Katz, founders of FES.
Now, after decades of meditating with and studying the plants, the plants themselves have inspired Brooke to offer this course. She hopes that in bringing this information forward, students will begin to reclaim their own empowerment for health as well go out and practice healing with this potent medicine in their own communities.
