Further Resources

Women who Run with the Wolves - Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Anything by Martin Shaw if you are interested in storytelling that is rich, thick and deep with wildness and meaning!

If you are starting to get into Flower Essences, we recommend the following resources:

Wild and Sacred Medicine - Rachel: this is where I share everything I have learned about essences and plant medicine from the past two decades. This information comes directly from the flowers! The book gives you a complete overview of how to use and work with essences, as well as detailed descriptions of the LightBringer Essences. It is currently available through Amazon, via kindle and paperback. 

Any books on Bach Essences by Mechthild Scheffer - she gives a deeper, more soulful reading of the Bach Essences than anyone else I know.

Also 'Form and Function' by Julian Barnard is superb if you are drawn to delving deeper into Bach Flower Essences and understanding more of how a plant's patterns of growth tells us of its essence qualities.

The full Flower Essence introductory course is below, including the latest episode which follows on from this weekend's explorations by introducing and exploring Dowsing and Divination.

LESSON 3: MEETING THE ESSENCES

In this third session, we meet some of the essences. This session focuses on how to use a 'Rescue Remedy' or 'Emergency Essence'. Nearly every essence range there is has their equivalent of this. It is the 'go-to' remedy whenever a person is in distress, shock or overwhelm and needs some gentle, effective support. 

This video explores the practicalities of how to use emergency essences. I teach you about Light Support Combination and the potential for working with an essence like this in situations of acute distress, or for longer term support. Here, you will meet some of the individual essences that make up the combination and experience some of their gifts and teachings.

LESSON 4: DOWSING 101

Selecting essences intuitively is one of the things that so many of us love and cherish about essence work. We really get to anchor into the feminine part of ourselves (and this is the same for all of us, regardless of gender) and connect into the deeper currents of our life when we work intuitively.
