BC-ACE residential course in German

Nicola Hanefeld BFRP1st January 2012

The first Bach Centre-Approved Continuing Education (BC-ACE) course to be launched in 2012 is perhaps the most ambitious event so far: a full residential week in the Alsace area of France, aimed at German-speaking BFRPs across Europe.

The week, entitled "Eine Woche der Begegnung: BFRPs, Bach Pflanzen und sich", will run for the first time between the 28th July and the 4th August 2012. Event leader Nicola Hanefeld told us about the venue, the Château de Pourtalès:

"I found an enchanting 18th-century mansion that has rooms for all sizes and types of groups.

BC-ACE Strasbourg"It's in the middle of a huge park with enormous old trees - including remedy trees horse chestnut and oak. It's only 4km outside Strasbourg (which has an airport) so it's easy to reach for people coming from afar. And there are niches and nooks and crannies all around the house where one can sit and chat - it's beautiful!"

The week will include time to see the area and socialise and just enjoy a holiday - but the mornings will provide opportunities for BFRPs to focus on the remedies, and on their work, with a series of workshops and discussions.

Nicola, who writes the "Bit of Botany" column in the BFRP Bulletin, will also lead a guided walk in search of remedy plants that grow locally.

Tessa Jordan BFRPTeaching in the mornings will be in German, and joining in will be the German-speaking, British BFRP and trainer, Tessa Jordan.
