The Evolutionary Journey of the Soul

How do we evolve in consciousness? How can we care for the soul in its evolutionary journey? In this workshop we will examine ways of seeing beyond the apparent situations in our lives to find an essential perspective through which we can view others and respect, honor and support their life processes. Deep inner healing takes place when we understand the soul and the direction in which it is pulling us.

  • What is consciousness? How does the soul evolve? The flower essence practitioner as a midwife for the birth of new consciousness.
  • Inheritance and Legacy: recognizing and working consciously with the tools, patterns, and influences with which we came into this life.
  • Flower essences to use in the stages of recovery from physical, emotional and sexual abuse.
  • Finding and anchoring our soul purpose.
  • Flower essences that support us in spiritual self-care.

Certification Program

Upon completion of the Flower Essence Therapy Course (part 1 & part 2) participants will qualify for the optional Desert Alchemy® Practitioner’s Certification Program, which includes further work documenting the use of desert flower essences over a period of six months.
