For the last decade, Kathleen Aspenns has been helping her clients overcome challenges, heal from traumatic experiences, and find a greater sense of connection to themselves and to Nature through Flower Essence Therapy. In addition to offering individual sessions, she loves to empower students to work with flower essences for themselves, their families and pets through classes and garden walks.
A lifelong fascination with the living world led her initially into work as a veterinary technician, then to college for a degree in Horticulture Science. Kathleen designed gardens professionally, and specialized in channeling her clients’ wishes into gardens that would thrive and delight.
In addition to her work as a flower essence practitioner, she has studied extensively with Linda Tellington Jones and is certified to teach the Tellington Method for horses.
Her initial interest in flower essences was initiated by her desire to help her moody parrot. Years later, she discovered a whole new world of flower remedies beyond the Bach essences she had been using, and enthusiastically signed on for professional training.
After completing Jane Bell’s nine month Practitioner Course, and submitting independent study and case work, she was certified by the Alaskan Flower Essence Project. She then worked for five years as Jane’s assistant practitioner, deepening her understanding of client work, supporting educational programs, and participating in the development and launch of Jane’s Hawaiian Essence series.
Since 2008, Kathleen has also been developing her own line of flower essences, the Flora of Asia. Each essence in the collection as been created in deep connection to the wild-source plants growing in a pristine garden in Sonoma County, California. Many of these plants have been used for thousands of years as herbs in Chinese Medicine and are available now for the first time as flower essences.
