Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, in-person workshops are postponed until further notice.
Since 1986, one of Cynthia’s great loves has been sharing in workshops about her experiences in using the flower essences and her ever deepening relationship with nature.
Her workshops are experiential in nature. By using audio and visual means, sensitive attunements, and experience stories, participants gain further understanding of the flower essences, desert nature, and their own inner selves.

Testimonials from Previous Participants
I thought that I was a flower essence practitioner when I arrived. I now feel that I am in the very worthy endeavour of becoming one. The attunement process, putting together and working with my team, clarifying intention and qualities put this work to an entire different level! I have been waiting for this information my whole life! This has been a life altering event for me, one for which I will be ever grateful and will pass on.
~ C. M., Arizona
Since taking your course, the essences I have used to assist people have helped them tremendously. Some are just amazed at how accurate they are. ‘How did you do that?’ they ask. I am very grateful for the opportunity to study with you. Thank you.
~ R. W., Arizona
I had no idea of the depth to which I could go within myself before I came to your workshop. It has been a journey of self-discovery that I never imagined could have happened.
~ K. W., Chicago
This course [The Flower Essence Therapy Course] can change your life. If you are interested in matters of the soul and spirit, of self-empowerment and self-awareness, of connecting with nature and the divine, of healing and what it can be, this class is for you. If you are interested in tools that provide assistance for trauma, addiction, and abuse, this class is for you. If you are interested in studying with a teacher who embodies what she teaches beautifully – well, this class is for you.

The Desert Alchemy Flower Essence Therapy Course is like coming home. The flowers of the desert have so much to share. Every moment is rich! For those with eyes to see and ears to hear! I love it each time. Cynthia and Camillo embody the essence of the heart and soul of the desert and what they teach.
~ P.T., California
I have had such an incredible experience using the Desert Alchemy flower essences with patients over the last 9 months [since taking the Flower Essence Therapy Course] with great effects. There are so many stories of people sharing how the flower essences have dramatically changed their life experience. Some know the role the essences played, others aren’t as aware (though it is obvious to me!).
As an acupuncturist, just seeing what is indicated helps me tremendously in assisting their process with acupuncture, more pin-pointedly and maybe in a way they were not able to or ready to share with me at the time. For instance, someone had Bisbee Beehive and Bloodroot in their [customized formula] and I gently broached the topic of possible sexual abuse or misuse in their past, which ended up being a breakthrough in their treatment.
I just want to say THANK YOU, Cynthia, for all of the work you have done with the Desert Devas and offering such a vehicle for these powerful and helpful plants to reach humanity. I feel honored every day working with them, and have so much gratitude for your service.
~ D. J., Arizona
I can easily use this in my bodywork practice.
~ H. A., Texas
I am in awe of the beauty of the whole process, from inception to end. Thank you for sharing so openly and honestly.
~ W. K., Colorado
The knowledge and the depth of the wholistic approach of the human and spiritual experience made it easier to go into life once again with a renewed spirit.
~ D. D., Texas
Your course was a message of loving care, sensitivity, and peace. It taught me an effective closeness with nature… to see beyond, so that the eye that resides within my eyes opened up to see the marvelous beauty of each desert plant and its messages. It was really magical.
~ V. A., Brazil
My expectations were met far beyond what I could imagine. I most appreciated the focus of the awareness of the Care of the Soul and the essences representing the femenine aspect of the Creative Divine.
~ C. M., Hawaii
It was not just a workshop on flower essences, but more a workshop on life!
~ W. K., Arizona
After taking your course, I can select the flower essences for myself. Your system is incredibly simple, easy, and self-empowering. And best of all, I don’t need to believe in anything. I can see how appropriate the essences are and it satisfies my skeptical mind. Thank you so much for your work.
~ K. L., California
Thank you so much for the workshop last weekend. It was wonderful. The workshop has inspired me to get out and re-read all my notes from previous classes and workshops and put it all to use again, but this time on a deeper level. I am ever so grateful for the work that you do!
~ S. B., Chicago
Cynthia, you were wonderful as a teacher, and I was so honored to be a sponge to your knowledge of the plants, your connection to and understanding of their spiritual presences, and I am just very thankful that there is someone out there who is doing this work!
~ A. M., California
The things that have changed for me after my coming home [from your course] are mostly that I feel very satisfied with myself, I love myself more and I feel more loved by other people.
~ A. H., The Netherlands
