Practitioner training in Colombia

GorseColombia will host its first Bach Centre-approved level 3 course this summer.

The course comes less than a year after the inaugural BIEP (Bach International Education Programme) level 1 course ran in Bogotá last September. Further level 1 and 2 courses have run since, and more are planned.

The level 3 – also in Bogotá – runs from the 2nd to 5th July. Dorana Carrera Ortiz, a BIEP trainer with ten years’ experience who is based in Argentina, is lined up to teach.

Maria Portugal of HANA Peru is the main organiser of the Colombian programme. ‘We launched level 1 together with the ‘El Arcano’ bookshop in Bogotá,’ she says. ‘The first workshop was held in a beautiful salon near the Carolina. There were 29 students and there was a lot of enthusiasm. Everyone was very happy and impressed by the workshop, including people who had been using flower essences for years.

‘We are very happy to have been able to make this happen in Colombia. We hope the flowers’ message of hope, truth, purity and love can reach many more people in this beautiful country very soon.’
