Advanced Essence Practitioner Course

Go on a voyage of discovery and learn about yourself too.

Odoo Members

A complete course designed to provide you with all the core needs to become an essence practitioner. 

Guided by Julie Bowman and Natalia Montes, both registered practitioners and passionate essence preparers.

We believe that to offer deep transformations and healing to your clients, a practitioner needs to have experienced the journey first, so from the start you will be encouraged and supported to prepare your own combinations. 

Our focus is for you to actually work with the essences (not to store them on a shelf), so from the beggining we will offer you the tools to feel confident to use them.

Modality of the course:

- This is a part online, part face to face course.

The course is based in the following 6 pillars:

1. Online support: 

  • Monthly group sessions: 2 hours long with space to answer questions, share and deepen on the topics that they are studying, tailored to the group’s needs. 
  • Personal follow-ups: you're entitled to 3 private one-hour-sessions along the duration of the course with one of the tutors. This is the space to discuss more personal issues and receive support in a way that resembles the therapeutic setting that you'll be implementing on your own practice. 
  • Group forum: private group with space for sharing and discussing on all topics arising from the classes and personal experience with the essences. 

2. Pre-recorded sessions: 

In-depth study of four essence ranges, history of vibrational essences and other information. You will be able to study at your own rhythm on your online portal following the recommended timings for each topic and revisiting each session each time you need them. Sessions aim to be informative and at the same time a friendly space for reflection, you see an example of a session here.

3. Portfolio: 

Printable material for you to take notes and complete excersises. As this is an accredited course, this portfolio might be assessed by and BFVEA supervisor. 

4.  Personal Experience with the essences: 

We believe that for true learning to happen, students need to have a direct experience with essences. These will be tailored to your needs and you'll receive support in your journey from the group and on a personal diary. 

5. Case Studies: 

From early on in the course, we will support your to practice in real-life cases with essences. These can be chosen according to your particular interests.

6. Face-to-face workshop: 

A 6-day retreat planned for June 2022 (we're keeping the dates flexible until we approach the time).  These days will be filled with exciting exercises, meditations and practice, like preparing your own essence at the wonderful Weleda Gardens in Derby, UK.
