In response to the yearnings of Practitioners of Flower Essence Therapy whom I’ve interviewed over the last years, I have now offered sequential iterations of this online Group Mentoring Circle through my Essence Circles website.
In this Essence Circles Webpage, you will find all currently available Programs.
Two new Groups, of 8 participants each, are being formed starting in April 2021.
This group experience helps us become clear and more potent voices of change, empowering us to bring our work out at a time when so much healing is needed.
We began our 2 more recent groups in December 2020, preparing the inner ground of our Souls to receive guidance around our Practice and offerings during the Sacred Nights. Other Groups like the one described below are coming together according to the demand, so if you are interested, please do stay in touch.
I invite you to participate and enjoy this rich group experience, that will infuse your business with insight, fresh inspiration and renewal!

My motivation and why I am offering this now
In the past, individuals and businesses have inspired me while building mine
After relinquishing my first career as a photographer to be regularly present for my infant kids, I started a business close to home in an unconventional format.
At the time, I was inspired by two existing small businesses that were similar, in their originality and uniqueness, to what I wanted to create. If they were able to make it happen and make a living at it, I thought, so could I. And sure enough, I did!
Eventually I have myself become a source of inspiration for others
Further along the way, I also became this kind of inspiration for others. Those who yearn to follow a calling, who want to feel confident that it is possible to move through change and reinvent their lives and their work, see me as someone who inspires them because I have done this with authenticity, integrity and success.
In Brazil, where I did a good part of my previous work, I am known for my courage to face and move through change, recreating and manifesting in a collaborative spirit that also helps others grow and shine.
In the field of Flower Essence Therapy where I have served the most – 30 years of dedicated service – I have consolidated a wealth of experience as a practitioner, teacher, mentor of practitioners and teacher of other teachers.
I also had the privilege of being inspired by the wise mentoring of Patricia Kaminski and Richard Katz founders of the Flower Essence Society, and by doing many consultation exchanges with wise colleagues like the late Steve Johnson founder of the Alaskan Essences, Jane Bell and many others with whom I worked.
My experience makes me uniquely qualified for this
I have devoted the last three decades to intensive service to Flower Essence Therapy, having gathered a unique combination of experience unparalleled in the field.
You may read more about me on this Bio page.
Here are some highlights on my unique combination of experience:
- Ongoing effective work with great numbers of clients over three decades
- Multiple opportunities of learning directly and working alongside our contemporary researchers and founders
- Educator in the field of Flower Essence Therapy for over three decades
- Coordinator, producer and translator of courses offered by the most advanced teachers in the field
- Entrepreneur with varied experience as owner of a company that produced many courses, distributed essences and nurtured community
During these three decades I have also experienced moving my practice, and more recently performing the full relocation and change in format of my present practice. I am contemporarily actively involved in learning and implementing Authentic Marketing solutions. Based on this, I can also help you grow your own practice to reach the ones you are meant to work with.
Welcome to our Mentoring Group Circles!
In 2020 / 2021, I look forward to our time together in this group format.
In these small circles, we will practice attentive listening to your needs as a Practitioner so that your gifts and blessing can reach the ones who need tour work.
Other groups may be formed responding to demand.

Being a part of Ruth’s Mentoring Circles was a valuable and nourishing experience. Meeting with other practitioners on a regular basis created a warm community feeling where we all felt supported and seen.
The guided exercises and discussions helped me clarify elements of my practice, and I really appreciated Ruth’s decades of experience in helping practitioners grow and deepen their work.
If you are looking to deepen your understanding as a flower essence practitioner, I highly recommend joining this program.
Kathleen Aspenns, Flower Essence Practitioner, Researcher and Producer of the Flora of Asia essences, Healdsburg, California
The work of Ruth Toledo Altschuler as a Flower Essence Practitioner and Educator has inspired me since 1997, when I first met her and chose to work with her as my Flower Essence Therapy practitioner.
In my heart, I had a strong desire to learn through her experience as a great healer. And so it was that through a whole decade, I opened myself to her care and I observed her precious and attuned perception while selecting essences, creating formulas that were as unique as they were powerful.
These encounters and formulas supported me through many life passages and transformation, mobilizing within me forces and restoration to a degree that I could not have known existed in my being, so dormant they were within my soul.
My being has flourished through learning with her and, I see in my own action and work as a Flower Essence Practitioner, her delicate presence inspiring me, while I create each flower essence formula with fine artistry, as an alive garden, vibrant and full of possibility of awakening balance and well being in those who reach for my care.

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 have been a flower essence practitioner since 1990, and have participated actively in Rio de Janeiro, where I owned a flower essence distribution company, offering and promoting courses and conferences. Since 2004, I have participated in the organization and training of flower essence practitioners, as well as in associations and in a national Council of Flower Essence Therapy, the Conaflor, of which I am currently honorary president.
And 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. Competent, dedicated, loving, I wish her full success in her new endeavors and in the new territory of online work.

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.
