Dr Andrew’s talk draws on his years of practical experience in the South West.  “I’ve practiced Family Medicine in Somerset for twenty years,” he says.  “In my experience when people feel well, they heal well.  It seems that nature has the ability to help us retune ourselves and help bring us back into balance.”  Dr Andrew is the author of I’m Fine!

Steve Johnson and the Alaskan Essences

In this week’s Nature Connections show Sara Turner (Chair of the British Flower and Vibrational Essences Association) speaks to Steve Johnson, Founder of Alaskan Essences. Steve began working with animals, especially dogs, cats, and horses, before he started working with people. His own personal contact with animals taught him that they were intelligent and soulful beings with well-developed emotional capacities. He also felt a debt of gratitude towards the animal companions that had blessed his life with their presence and wanted to give something back. From the outset, he found that animals were generally more responsive to flower essences than humans, and over the years he has seen the positive effects essences can have in a number of areas. Steve feels his work is to not only empower people to use essences from nature to heal their animal friends, but to increase public awareness of what is possible when we expand the circle of healing between the animal, human, and nature kingdoms.

In this interview Steve discusses why animals get sick and how essences can help them heal. He also shares information about the workshops he is running this Autumn with Animal Communicator Judith Poelarends. These workshops are an opportunity for “animal guardians” and those working in the fields of animal health care and animal rescue to learn the effective application of Alaskan flower, gem and environmental essences.
