We are now offering our third teacher training program for students of AromaGnosis who would like to use these principles and working modalities in their own work.

We are offering a 6 day program in New Mexico May 2nd-9th 2020. We will work intensively together both indoors and in nature to teach you how to hold the space, create the framework and offer the experiences necessary to teach others how to use aroma to deepen their own soul’s journeys through the alchemical stages. 

There is a growing need for people to learn how to journey inwards for self-healing in a coherent, structured and effective way and to be able to use aromatics, their sense of smell and intuitive plant communication as allies on this important journey. We have developed a teacher training program that blends the concepts of Carl Jung, aromatics and intuitive knowing in a way that can be applied to all healing modalities. Our teaching philosophy is empowerment, passion and the development of personal myth.

This unique teacher training is not about teaching information, it is about teaching process. The content of the program is adaptable to all healing modalities. We will help you develop your unique and individual signature as a soul medicine teacher. 

This 6-day intensive program is aimed at professionals that are passionate about teaching an intuitive method of learning to work with plants and aromatics for deep, profound inner healing and transformation. The program will give you the structure, skills, tools, experiences and passion to want to adapt this work to your own healing modality. Upon completion of the course participants will not only have the necessary foundation in the basic concepts, alchemical stages and intuitive working methods to teach others but will have discovered their own personal approach to the work giving them distinctive qualities to lead then forward in their teaching journeys.  

Cathy Skipper and Dr. Florian Birkmayer between them have more than forty years of teaching experience combined with professional healing modalities. They will guide you step by step through hands on experience on how to develop your individualized teaching style using their tried and tested tools and structures in a way that is not being offered anywhere else.    

The course will prepare you to teach both in the classroom, in nature, in community groups, in specialized centers. It will give you the basis to develop the alchemical journey to a huge variety of themes including trauma, addiction, self development, women’s work, environmental challenges and much more. It will also teach you how to work intuitively and energetically with plants and aromatics in a coherent, structured way and to teach others this important aspect of plant medicine.

Some Moments from the First Session

“It has taken me a few days to come to my senses (no pun intended) and be able to articulate all I am distilling within myself and I look forward to how this trip has inspired a change within that will help me to grow with my craft and share my work all through the power of scent and inner awareness”. Suzanne Barroso

Thank you Cathy , for your teachings on Animus and the Feminine. They came thru me today … and touched several young women in places most needed.”  Mary Beth Mc Bride

Daily anointing with rose attar myself. Have also been working with Champaca in remembrance of our animus work. Hard to explain the shift, but it is so real“. Erika Galentin
