Flower Essence Therapy – Training Course

  • with Loey Colebeck / Mind Is Body Therapies
  • Beginning October 7
  • 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.
  • $1950 for the course. $1775 if paid in full by June 23. $1875 if paid in full by August 12
  • Distance learning option available-82 CEUs
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 in-depth 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 a rich opportunity for self discovery.
We will cover Dr. Bach’s life and work, psychological portraits and companion essences, Chinese Medicine aspects, trauma theory, topical applications and scientific studies, 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 where it is nationally recognized or integrated into their health care system, 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. 82 CEUs available for full participation.

 

“One need not be a follower of either Dr. Bach or Professor
Rodriguez’s approach to therapy to appreciate the clinical
sensitivity and depth of insight which they bring to the study of
personality pathology. This should be a useful reference work for
both open-minded clinicians and early students in training.”
– Theodore Millon

Intro to Holotropic Breathwork: An Experiential Evening

  • with Kirsten Kairos & Dory Perry
  • October 22 2018, from 6:30-8:30pm
  • $21
Join Grof-certified facilitators, Kirsten Kairos and Dory Perry, for an in-depth conversation about Holotropic Breathwork and the use of expanded states of awareness for increased consciousness, healing and transformation.
Holotropic Breathwork, developed by world-renowned psychiatrist and psychedelic researcher, Stanislav Grof, invites the breather on a deep journey inward supported by accelerated breath, evocative music, requested focused energy release techniques, integrative process via mandala drawing and group sharing. It should also be noted the role of “sitter” used in this method is equally profound. This process is for those wanting to identify and release old patterns, to heighten creativity, to understand the importance of powerful transformation, to open to positive possibilities, to heal past traumas and benefit from clearing unprocessed life experience that may be cluttering the path to living authentically.
This event will last no more than 2 1/2 hours, and will include a discussion about Holotropic Breathwork: the elements of a typical session, the possibilities of personal experience and a little about the history of Stan Grof and why he felt the need to bring Holotropic Breathwork forward as a healing modality.
We will have a short experiential piece sitting up with eyeshades on to feel into what the breathing pattern might be for you, to deeply listen to brief examples of the type of evocative music that is played and to feel into the potential range of energetic release with body movement and sounding.
What to bring: water bottle, journal & pen and wear comfortable clothes.
Tea and a light snack will be provided.
We look forward to deepening the conversation about expanded states of awareness!
