Healing Essences Course

Written by Jacqui Bushell.

Course Description

Flower and gem essences are transformational tools of consciousness made from the immersion of a flower, gem or other object in water and left to infuse in sunlight. The resulting water contains an imprint of the flower or gem. Essences interact with our subtle bodies triggering resonance through all aspects of our being. They encourage the awakening of our dormant qualities, inspiring transformation and alleviating our fears and limited perceptions. Essences invite opportunities for profound healing and change at all levels. In this course you will explore making, prescribing and communicating with essences. There is a strong focus on practical experience, personal empowerment and awakening to nature.

A similar course is run at the Awareness Institute over 8 weeks with a one day workshop connecting with nature and making an essence.
