The Essence of Transformation - Healing with the life force patterns in nature
Creating a vibrational remedy from flowers, gems or a landscape is a simple yet profoundly empowering and transformational spiritual practice. Essences touch you in a place beyond words and conscious knowing, profoundly resonating through your body and soul. Catalysts of change, they inspire shifts in behaviour, perceptions, attitudes and feelings. When you sit with a flower in a bowl of water, there is an opportunity to be uplifted by its unique expression into greater self-understanding, wisdom and love. When you deeply acknowledge a flower, you experience a unifying Oneness that enriches you and blesses the land. The essence water can be taken regularly to help anchor the flower’s invitation for insight and change. Flower Essences are gifts that blossom infinitely! In this workshop, learn what Essences are, how they work, balance and empower others, and how to make them yourself. Experience a guided meditation connecting with a flower’s pattern of consciousness and the devic realms.
