Flower Essence Language and Principles, for deep understanding and precise application

Ongoing encounters allow for meaningful conversations in a shared language that we love, but may rarely have a chance to engage in. This will happen within a community of like minded and resonant hearted others, that you will get to meet frequently and engage with throughout time.

Learning and studying Flower Essence Plant Archetypes and their application is a never ending Journey. And part of this journey can be enriched by experiencing it within our community! 

Each session brings added pieces that are woven with previous ones, as we generate a shared reservoir of knowledge that we can refer back to, and that builds over time.

FAQ - Program of Deepening Studies for Professional Development

  • Will I know the Plant Archetypes and Topics chosen beforehand? In time for me to acquire the essence?

    Yes, the Plant Archetype and Topic chosen will be announced at least 10 days before the Plant Study session. Further choices will be defined following requests and needs expressed by the group.

  • What happens right after I enroll in this Professional Development Program? Can I enroll after it has already started?

    Right after enrollment, you gain access to the invitations and link for all upcoming Live Events. In case you are joining a Module that has already began, you also gain immediate access to existing Recordings that will be added over time.

  • Once enrolled, do I have to participate in all Live Events?

    You can participate Live whenever you want, and you can also just watch the recordings. The advantage of participating live is the possibility of interacting with colleagues, bringing both your questions as well as your enriching contributions.

  • Can I interrupt my enrollment? What happens if I do so?

    You may exit this Professional Development Program at any time and for any reason. All you need to do is cancel your Monthly registration. If you decide to leave the Program before it ends, however, you will not have access to the Recordings.

  • After each 5 Month Program ends, for how long do I have access to the Recordings?

    Once each Module of 5 Months (and 10 Live Events) is completed, you will have access to the Recordings for at least one more year, and certainly for as long as we maintain this service in this platform.

  • As a Beginner, will I be able to follow and understand the content shared? What are your pre-requisites?

    If you are a total beginner, you will probably need to supplement your understanding of the very basics of Flower Essences and their use by taking a few beginner level Basic Courses. We will soon have a Self Study Basics Course available, that will be bundled as part of this Program.

“As a participant of Ruth’s online courses, even 23 years after taking my first FES California Flower Essences course also led by Ruth, I still feel the same enchantment with the flowers and their essences and experience the same freshness and inspiration coming from Ruth as a teacher.
Through these courses, my use of the flower essences is renewed, as the perspective and focus that Ruth brings are of great depth, while the media rich content shared through the internet provides a form of contact with the flowers that is incredibly strong.
This is a valuable experience: the images, the sound, the quality of the content, the depth of the proposed experiences, the delicacy in listening, everything is absolutely well placed, with great zeal and care.”

Isabela Bisconcini - Flower Essence Practitioner, Jungian Psychotherapist, Family Constellations Practitioner

“I consider Ruth the leader of Flower Essences. She is able to hold the energy of both Earth and Sky for the natural world. With a lifetime of commitment and experience, Ruth is able to create and interpret a language for both the flowers and practitioners to understand.
I am so grateful for any opportunity to learn from her personally or professionally. Ruth is gifted as a teacher, mentor and loving human being.
The Essence Mentoring Circles led by Ruth are empowering. She gracefully asks you to tap into your own unique essence and find your voice for the natural world. She advocates for each individual to find their super power and use it to co create with nature. This is truly what our world needs to thrive.
Thank you dear Ruth for allowing me to stand in the Circle of Life with confidence and reverence as I bloom.”

“When I first met Ruth Toledo Altschuler in the early 1990s, Flower Essence Therapy was in its early stages in Brazil – and Ruth emerged as a pioneer in this field.
I had the joy and fortune to accompany and enjoy the work that was beautifully offered by her, initially through Essencias Florais, a company she cofounded that imported essences into Brazil.
This was a period of great dissemination of this therapy and Ruth, with her deep knowledge, brought this work forth through the distribution of essences, coupled with promoting courses, bringing foreign researchers and offering many lectures.
When it came to fulfilling the need for English-speaking translation, she stepped up to the task with great success, with her accurate and sensitive translation. Her profound knowledge of flower essences, her sensitivity and delicacy and her knowledge of the English language, made her the preferred translator for events on this modality.
Ruth is a reference in Brazil in all aspects of Flower Essence Therapy: she is a professional that combines competence, with a deep and sensitive perception of the human soul. I, in particular, have great affection and admiration for her, for all her dedication and delicate vision, which always leads us to want to get in touch with the most beautiful and deepest in ourselves.
I am very pleased to testify and bear witness to the importance of Ruth Toledo Altschuler for Flower Essence Therapy as a pioneer, recognized by all who practice this therapy in Brazil. ”
