Course overview

The healing properties of flower essences can be explained in terms of a philosophy of life that recognises a human being is much more than a physical body. Illness is an inner voice warning us that change is needed in our mental state, perception or way of life. The inner voice calls for this change so that we may be restored to health and joyful experience of life. The Flower Essences were developed to enable us to effect those changes in a gentle, natural, but powerful way. This course can be used to complement other forms of complementary therapy.
