Who is Bach Flower Education and the Bach Flower Institute?


We are the international leaders in Bach flower education.

Our founder, Nancy Buono, began writing curriculum for all three levels of the Bach international education program in 1998 and trained every teacher in the US and Canada from 1998 to 2020.

In 2009, we became the first provider internationally to offer online courses for Level 1. And in 2020, when people were struggling with a pandemic and many fears and worries, we again led the way with innovation, creating the Bach Flower Institute to bring live interactive online courses to students across the world to ensure that people could keep learning and sharing Dr Bach’s healing system.

Whether in a local classroom or on the web, we remain committed to education, so that you can learn to find your inner balance and help others to live happier lives with the Bach flower remedies. Our team of dedicated teachers offer you decades of experience in both working with the remedies and sharing their knowledge.

You can meet our teachers here www.bachflowereducation.com/our-teachers.html

We are the education experts on the Bach flower remedies (essences) and have brought the Bach flowers to over 10,000 students in North America.

Can I become a practitioner if I complete all 3 levels of study?

Yes! Dr Bach wanted his complete system to be available to all.  We recognize that some students may complete practitioner training to deepen their own knowledge of the remedies for use with friends and family, whereas others may wish to pursue to running a practice and helping clients.
