A Weekend Course for Existing Therapists who would like to add the 'prescription' of Meldings to their existing practice.

Ideal if you are fascinated by our relationship with the natural world and how plant energy can be used to facilitate spiritual development and emotional healing or if you are looking to standout from other therapists practicing your discipline in your area.

Meldings can be easily offered to clients within a session in order to maximise the impact of your massage or energy work and/or offered to clients to take away with them. Once qualified, you will to eligible to purchase Meldings at a discounted rate so that you can easily make up blends or provide 10 ml singles to those you work with.

If you are not a professional therapist but would like to attend the course for personal development then do get in touch with us to discuss the course's suitability for you.

Meldings Practitioner Training Sept 3rd & 4th 2022


  • We will have the kettle on at 9.30am for a 10am start at the Medicine Garden, 10 Union Street, Ulverston LA12 7HR. There is parking in the public car park behind the centre which you have to pay for even on Sundays but you can usually find on street parking in the surrounding roads.
    If the weather is fine we will certainly be outside for part of the course, so we recommend that you bring suitable (warm…most likely!) clothing and footwear.
    Please bring a note pad and pencil, a bottle of water, a blanket and pillow for your comfort during meditations, as well as something for lunch.
    Tea, additional water and nibbles will be provided and there are plenty of cafes and small shops in Ulverston where you could buy lunch if you wished.
    Included in the course price are a full set of 49 Meldings for you to work with over the weekend and to take away with you as well as a full handbook full of ideas for working with them and suggestions about which to use in certain situations and much much more. As a graduate of the course, you are able to purchase Meldings at a wholesale price so that you can sell them on to your clients at profit. Practitioner price: £5. (Retail value £8- £8.95 ) Larger stock bottles are also available should you wish to purchase them from us for making up blends etc. These cost £17.50 although we ask that these are not for resale due to the limitations of insurance cover. We also sell 10ml dropper bottles for the making up of blends for your clients at £1 each. Should you wish to order wholesale at any time we ask you email us through this address meldings@live.co.uk.
    The course is fully insurable through Holistic Insurance Services. There website is http://www.holisticinsurance.co.uk. You will need to present them with your certificate of qualification. Balens also offer insurance.
    You will be given a certificate of attendance at the end of the weekend, but full qualification depends on the completion of 5 case studies - These can be with existing clients and can easily be a part of your working life. We are interested in your reflection process and the choices you have made rather than tonnes of paper work. You are invited to meet with either Sarah or Jane for a hour upon completion of your case studies to discuss them (at no charge.) Further mentoring sessions are also available - the cost of these is £35 an hour. We are obviously happy to answer the odd question when they arise too…so keep in touch after the course.
  • If you find that you are unable to attend the course, and let me know up to two weeks before hand, then I will refund your payment in full. If you let me know closer to the time (within two weeks before) and I am able to fill the space, from my waiting list or through another booking coming in, then I will refund you in full. If you are unable to attend, you always have the option of transferring to another course or a future date.
    In a situation where I have to cancel the course, I will refund you in full or if you prefer you can transfer onto another course or date.
