This course launched in English in August 2020. Translations into other languages will follow.
The Level 2 Distance Learning Programme (L2 DLP for short) is an advanced course on Dr Bach’s system. It follows on from Level 1 (which you must attend before starting this course), and seeks to give you more understanding and experience of the system.
The L2 DLP has five main elements:
- A document called a Dossier, which guides you through everything, and where you write your answers to questions, reflect on experiences etc.
- Online videos to watch
- Written material to download and read
- Real-world activities to do at home, sometimes alone, sometimes with friends or family
- Online real-time sessions with a trainer and a small group of other students, where you can take part in exercises, learn from and share with other students, and raise questions
You will need reliable internet access to complete the L2 DLP.
Fees and what they cover
The fee for the course is split into two components:
- An initial enrolment fee (£156) when you sign up for the course, which gives you access to the Dossier, the written material and the videos
- An additional fee paid direct to a trainer each time you sign up for an online session
The total fee you pay could vary, because you might choose to attend more than the minimum number of online sessions. Assuming you only attend the minimum, the total fee including all sessions and the enrolment fee will not exceed £246.
For the enrolment fee, you have a right to cancel your enrolment within 14 days of booking and we will refund you in full. For the online sessions, trainers will have their own cancellation policies.
The online sessions
There are six different live online sessions, and you must take part at least once in each of them. Each takes one and a half to two hours to complete. Links in the Dossier tell you where to find them and how to book.
Authorised Level 2 trainers facilitate the sessions, and you will be working with a small group of five to eleven other students.
You may choose to repeat a session if you feel you need more input or practice on a topic – or want a chance to engage with different students and trainers – or would like to focus on areas that you particularly enjoy.
Confidentiality and respect
Some activities in the L2 DLP involve thinking, writing or talking about personal experiences. Learning about our own feelings is a key part of using Dr Bach’s system, but you can and should set your own limits so that you are always comfortable about what you choose to share.
All the trainers running online sessions are BFRPs (Bach Foundation Registered Practitioners) and work under the Bach Centre’s Code of Practice.
During online sessions the trainer running the session will remind you and the other students in the group of the need to respect the confidentiality of anything shared with others during the activity.
At the end of the course your completed Dossier will be read by a BFRP specially appointed by the Centre. Once the certificate has been issued we will delete our copy of the completed Dossier.
You yourself should safeguard the privacy and confidentiality of anybody else you interact with during the course. When you help a friend or relative to select remedies, for example, anything that the other person tells you should be heard with respect and not shared outside the limits of the course. And to safeguard the privacy of other students you must not record the online sessions.
This course is complete in itself, but if you want to explore further the reading lists are a good place to start: the relevant list for this course is “Preparing for Level 2”.
The lists for every level vary according to language. Not everything has been translated and books go in and out of print all the time. If you can’t find a new copy of a particular text you may find a used one in an online bookshop or auction site.
Using remedies on the course
The course assumes that you have access to the 38 remedies and the traditional emergency mix.
If you don’t have a set of your own and can’t borrow from a friend, and can’t find them locally, you can order from the Centre’s online shop.
Many BFRPs offer a service whereby they send personal mixes by post – so if you can’t get remedies of your own that could be an alternative.
When you finish
You need to engage with every part of the course in order to complete your Dossier. When you have done everything, you send your Dossier to the Bach Centre. We check it through and email you a Bach Centre Level 2 certificate.
The Level 2 certificate allows you to enrol on any Bach Centre-approved Level 3 course, anywhere in the world. Completing Level 3 gives you the opportunity to apply to join the Bach Centre’s International Register of Practitioners.
