Somewhere within us we yearn for a closer and effective Reconnection with the living world around us.
Actively bringing healing plants as daily helpers is a simple way to cultivate an alliance that brings aliveness, as well as relief to a whole range of our daily discomforts, tension and stress.
Bring into your life time tested easy ways to help yourself and your loved ones with Healing Plants!
A 1 hour Webinar offering a connection with these 3 plants, with instructions on how to use them as herbs and as flower essences:
As Flower Essences, these plants meet basic needs for improving daily life conditions such as:
- Yearning to feel spaciousness, relax muscles
- Tension from over striving; transform a tendency to take on too much
- Argumentative dynamics and stress in communication
- Wanting to listen deeply and communicate in ways that heal
- Needing to be more open to receive help when it is offered
- Healthy courage and bravery, rather than intensity that drains heart forces
The simple herbal uses of these plants apply selectively to conditions such as:
- Tending and helping to heal inflammation
- Soothing skin irritation in ways that are safe for all ages
- Restoring and calming the skin
- Edible uses of flowers and leaves
- Tonic for sluggish liver
- Restoring the heart; preventive for physical upsets of a “broken heart”

The practice of Herbalism is embedded in all human cultures
The history of Herbalism is deeply embedded in the development of all human cultures. And the main practice of herbalism has been, and continues to be, a vernacular medicine of the people for the people.
From the hills of Wales to the villages of Greece, from the lodges of British Columbia to the cities of Persia, the ones who offer healing herbs are laypeople like you, often grandmothers and grandfathers who have always cared. These people often know more of nature and of life itself, when it comes to our day to day needs.
Don’s teachings, in this context, are focused on medicine for the people by the people — practical herbalism. Herbals were, and are, available for self-education and guidance and for safe self-medication.
Flower Essences were first developed in the UK in the 1930’s
Dr Edward Bach, creator of the Rescue Remedy or Five-Flower Formula, developed the first essences as we know them today. Simply prepared and inexpensive, flower essences are safe to use, as they do not contain plant material or physical active principles – they are subtle and effective Vibrational preparations.
What Flower Essences do contain is Evolutionary Information of the life force of plants: how a specific plant has learned to thrive, the evolutionary information of a healthy plant defining its path of continuity is what is registered in a Flower Essence, conveying its unique quality.
….”With so much of our lives online there is a deep longing for “realness” and authenticity. We have what seems like infinite option, and it’s a job in and of itself to figure out what we want. Then we need to find how to get there, and hope that the process accesses the deep aspects of experience our souls crave … it’s a tall order indeed.
Truly Don’s program met so much of my searching. The initial feeling when I jumped on the program was relief. The plants themselves can fully shine when the teaching, intention and framework is dynamic, honest, and engaged.
Authenticity and genuine connectivity catalyze real learning and by extension (hallelujah!) personal growth.
…. I’m grateful.

The experience of online meetings for deepening our understanding of Flower Essences offered by Ruth Toledo Altschuler is amazing! At the end of each meeting, multiple and strong sensations bring us back to an intimate and face-to-face contact with plants and nature, even though we are virtually connecting. In the same way, we feel a great quality of connection as a group.
This is my testimonial, and it also reflects what I feel in the eyes and expression of the faces of each participant at the end of the sessions.
