Essentially  Flowers runs a  12 month part online/part attendance course featuring ranges of essences from around the world including Healing Herbs, Australian Bush, Alaskan, Fox Mountain, Spirit in Nature, Indigo, FES, Spirit of Beauty, Petite Fleur and our own range Moonflower Essences. Interviews with many of the essence producers are featured recorded especially for this course.
Our Diploma has graduated more than 55 participants since it began in 2011. Although the Diploma is online, it is definitely NOT a home study course and we pride ourselves on offering a loving and supportive space to learn about the professional use of Flower and Vibrational Medicine and experience a personal journey of transformation with nature.


Attended weekends take place in South West France

This BFVEA accredited practitioner training programme touches all aspects of working in conscious partnership with nature.

Students can attend any or all of four three-day workshops, each of which focusses on a different aspect of flower and vibrational essences.  All four workshops combine to deliver a complete professional training programme in Flower and Vibrational Essences Therapy to Advanced Practitioner level.

Learn and study with experienced tutors, in the unique environment of this ancient holy well. Imagine the simple joy of making your own essence, or fulfilling your vision of becoming a practitioner or essence producer. These workshops will support, inspire and guide you at every level.

The Chalice Well is an ancient Holy Well situated at the foot of Glastonbury Tor, within the mystical landscape of Avalon. The healing waters that flow from the Red Spring have associations with the Holy Grail and help to make the garden a living sanctuary.  Chalice Well Essences are co-created to support the healing journey and evolve personal and spiritual capacities so that we can create the life we want and become all that we can be.

The Founder, Wellesley Tudor Pole, described the Chalice Well as

“a window into the wider realms of life and being, and also a channel through which Inspiration can pour and become more easily perceived and accepted than elsewhere”.

Sue Lilly is one of the founder members of the BFVEA and was part of the group that put the guidelines together for BFVEA courses. Sue has been teaching the MCS Flower Essence Practitioner Diploma  course since 1999.  This course has been taught in further education settings as well as the current, part-tutored, part correspondence/email arrangement.  Over the years there have been many changes to the course to keep everything up to date. To date there have been nearly 200 students who have successfully navigated the course, many of whom are now also essence producers and a large proportion have used the course as a springboard to a variety of paths.

The course features the 12 “healers” of the essences made according to the instructions of Dr Edward Bach, (provided by Healing Herbs), the Focus Fix Combination Essences from Green Man Essences, the Sovereignty Environmental Essences, essences from Australian Bush Flower Combinations range and one “Test” essence.  The book ‘The Essence Practitioner’ was published by Singing Dragon in 2014 and joined over 39 books written by Sue (some with her husband Simon) since 1996.

Sue is the current Secretary of the British Association of Flower Essence Producers  and Chair of the Crystal Therapy Council (CTC).  She works closely with the energies of the land and aims to keep her teaching and writing straightforward, grounded and concise to enable many people to have access to information and techniques that enable them to move towards developing their full potential.

Bonny Casel developed Quantum Botanicals, a synergistic approach to Mind-Body Healing supported by resonant plant frequencies, over the course of the last 10 years. She has been teaching Naturopathy, Herbal Medicine, Healing Diets, Iridology and Vibrational Plant Medicine since 1988, and is the founder and director of School of Natural Medicine, UK.She was fortunate to meet, and be inspired by, Stephen Hawking at an early age, and was introduced to Fractal Geometry and Quantum Physics by colleagues of her step-father . Over the years Bonny has integrated study of plant medicine with the work of leading scientists in a range of fields including quantum physics, biophysics, heart-brain coherence, psychoneuroimmunology, and mind-body research, to establish an approach to healing and teaching that embraces the vibrational reality that we all exist within. Bonny’s approach is grounded in practical healing processes that incorporate the vibrational healing potential of plant food, essential oils, flower essences and medicinal herbs into mind-body healing modalities.

In June 2019 another wonderful group of students achieved advanced practitioner status following a course run in the beautiful Abbey House, overlooking Glastonbury Abbey.

I am an experienced teacher and see myself as a facilitator and enabler; my aim is to empower and inspire students to follow their true path with confidence.

You are guided throughout the course and given continuous individual support and encouragement. We explore the Bach Flower Remedies and other essence ranges presented by the producers. You learn to create your own essences, connecting to the energies of place and plants. The course offers many different opportunities for developing and trusting your intuition.

The Flower and Vibrational Essences Advanced Practitioner Course, accredited by the BFVEA, usually runs over four 3 day weekends. However I am happy to discuss bespoke training to suit different needs. Although I am based in Somerset, training days can be run elsewhere in the UK.

CPD training days will be available to qualified practitioners in Glastonbury. Date to be confirmed

Please send me an email if you would like to receive any information or just be in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.
