Learning to use Bach Flower Remedies
Classroom and Distance Learning Courses for 2009/10
Bach Flower Training Programme - Introduction
Bach Flower Remedies can be selected for
particular moods and character types. The
course will show you how to identify both
the positive and negative emotional states
we all meet in the course of life. Dr Bach’s
thought provoking philosophy and his
understanding of illness and health are at the
heart of the course.
You will follow the journey Dr Bach took
between 1928 and 1935 when he went out
into the British countryside in search of
plants to treat the emotional imbalances he
believed were the root cause of all illnesses.
He sensed similarities between people
needing to be healed and the characteristics
of certain plants. You will learn about Dr
Bach’s ideas through practical experience: by
observing the plants and reflecting on your
own experiences of the moods and character
states Dr Bach identified. This will lead you
to increased self-awareness and a deeper
understanding of illness and health.
On both the classroom and distance learning
courses you will build up your own file of
class texts including individual and group
exercises that will help you learn about the
healing powers in nature. There will be
opportunities to share experiences, ideas
about the remedies and the states of mind
they reflect. During the course you will be
encouraged to build on the texts provided
by recording your own ideas and
observations on the flowers, the Bach
Remedies and their effects.
Who are the Bach Flower training courses for?
Dr Bach wrote that no medical experience
or formal qualifications were needed to use
the remedies. The complete beginner and
those who already know something about
Bach remedies will all benefit from the
course. Practitioners of other therapies may
be especially interested in adding them to
their range of treatments, Dr Bach worked
passionately to pass on his discoveries and
knowledge through books, public lectures
and teaching his colleagues. His aim was to
make the flower remedies available for use
in every home.
Dr Bach said: "… without a knowledge of
medicine their use can be understood so easily that
they can be used in the household." (Wallingford
Lecture 1936 - Collected Writings Page 3).
There are no secret recipes or detailed
textbooks of scientific information to learn.
All that is needed, Dr Bach suggested, is a
genuine desire to understand how to relieve
suffering. Our course will help you learn
the remedies by studying the plants and the
emotional states they help to balance
through a practical and thought provoking
