The Bach Flower Remedies are the original flower essences. Beyond the Rescue Remedy, Bach's simple system of 38 essences are the best way in to this supportive method of mental and emotional healing - equipping you:

This one day course offers a practical introduction to the remedies and their use. We will also cover the process of creating new remedies, their preparation, action and distribution.

Time permitting, we will go through some energy awareness exercises to experience directly the action of a brand new remedy.

Mark has worked with these essences for over 20 years, completing the Nelson/Bach three-tier training programme to practitioner level. He also develops his own flower, crystal and environmental essences and is a registered, practicing homeopath. This course has been run many times in Dublin, Clare, Leitrim and Galway over the past few years.

"The Bach Flower Remedies day course was very good and informative. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the day was well scheduled. I found it very useful and I'm now confident to use the Bach Flowers in my Clinic.
Thank you for all that. Looking forward for upcoming courses!
Kind Regards, Tania Dunne, Kinesiologist."

"Thank you Mark for the sound introduction to Bach's life and work, the great handouts, fun group exercises as well as the hands on essence making experience. Very much in keeping with Bach's simple and intuitive approach to healing, this course has given me enough information, inspiration and practical advice to start prescribing flower essences straight away - food for the soul!" - Rita Garland Lic.I.S.H.  ISHom

Mark is a very natural talented teacher who plans exactly and thoroughly what he wants to impart during his course. You'll come away with great information from his workshop as well as practical handouts. He is very generous with his knowledge and his personal collection of essences to try out. Taking part in the creation of an essense I found fascinating and special. - Rhóda Uí Chonaire Lic.I.S.H. ISHom

Many thanks for a truly educational, enjoyable day yesterday....much food for thought and great options for supporting our clients. - Helen Healy, Homeopath

Mark's course provided me with a clear and detailed overview of flower essences, the different types of essences and their use. We also learned how to make an essence which was a wonderful experience and 'proves' how powerful essences can be. Mark's style was like a conversation with an enthusiastic friend and I feel like I absorbed lots of information without actually being lectured at. Very enjoyable and I highly recommend this course. - Ailish Farragher
