Quantum Botanicals Advanced Diploma
Quantum Botanicals Advanced Diploma

The Quantum Botanicals Diploma Course offers a loving and mind expanding exploration of the plant world, the nature of consciousness and quantum physics, opening your heart and mind in profound ways that will change the way you perceive healing, the relationship between mind, body and nature, and the patient-practitioner relationship.

I have to say, the content of the Quantum Botanicals course is fantastic. It is the most in-depth and comprehensive grounding in the knowledge necessary to grasp how essences work, and how they can be used to help self and others, that I am aware of.

The BFVEA (British Flower and Vibrational Essence Association) Annual Gathering last weekend was a really excellent experience and all the talks were really riviting. If I could single out which was my favourite and quite phenomenal it was Bonny Casel on Quantum Botanicals: if anyone has a chance to hear Bonny speak, please go!….as International Chair of the BFVEA I am so amazed when I meet someone like Bonny who can literally blow all my circuits in wonder and amazement - WHAT A BLESSING!

Discover the world of plant frequencies, quantum and fractal potential, heart-brain coherence and vibrational medicine through a comprehensive study of the nature of matter and energy, how consciousness communicates with matter, the relationship between thoughts, emotions and cellular function, direct perception plant communication, flower essences and a range of vibrational modalities to support the healing process.

All plant medicine is vibrational medicine, including diet, herbs, essential oils, flower essences and homeopathic remedies that utilise the vibrational/quantum field of plants.

Learn about the fundamental science that underpins vibrational medicine, and how to engage the power of quantum and fractal potential through plant nutrition and medicine.

This course combines a strong foundation in the science of quantum healing with a deep study of consciousness; left and right brain hemisphere attention and processing, unconscious and collective unconscious vibrational archetypes, and mind-body healing with vibrational medicine.

The course explores healing diets, culinary and medicinal herbs, essential oils and flower essence therapy in-depth, as a profound opportunity to support healing of thoughts and emotions that hinder our path towards wholeness, peace and conscious experience of life.

The course also introduces students to traditional and indigenous perspectives on the relationship between subtle energies of mind, emotions and the physical body, including study of Ayurvedic, Chinese and other traditional systems.

The Quantum Botanicals Advanced diploma course was created by Bonny Casel and she personally mentors each online student.
