Flower Essence Therapy-Training Course: Transform your Life and the Life of your Practice with Loey Colebeck

Dates: Every third Sunday, 9 am to 6 pm, from October 2018-May 2019: Oct 7, Oct 28, Nov 18, Dec 9, Jan 6, Jan 27, Feb 17, Mar 10, Mar 31, Apr 28, May 19.
Price: $1950 for the course. $1775 if paid in full by June 23th. $1875 if paid in full by August 12th

This exciting, in-depth course provides a broad, solid base for using flower essences in the home or in established clinical practices. Flower Essence Therapy (FET) is a highly advanced and scientifically proven, yet extremely simple and safe therapy, but with few clinically sound training opportunities in the United States. This course provides a necessary foundation for future Flower Essence Therapists, an invaluable tool for integrative clinical practices, and an opportunity for self discovery.
We will cover material both deep and wide including Dr. Bach's life and work, topical applications and scientific studies, psychological portraits and companion essences, Chinese Medicine aspects, trauma theory, and more. We will thoroughly cover the Bach Remedies as well as selected remedies from other systems. As most of the clinical advances in FET are being made in Spanish-speaking countries, much of the contemporary information that we will cover has not yet been translated to English, so this course is a truly unique learning opportunity! A certificate will be awarded upon successful completion of the course.
