Flower Essence Practitioner Training Program


Plant Spirit Medicine & The Lost Language of Plants

How to be a Powerful and Impactful Coach,
Counselor or Mentor

Using Flower Essences to Heal Boundaries, Betrayals and Increase Self-Worth

Healing the heart is the path to emotional freedom and your greatest desires.
Become a Flower Essence Practitioner and change your life and the lives of your clients.

I know that you deeply desire for your loved ones and clients to live vibrant lives, have epic love, great adventures, be happy and confident mothers, achieve financial abundance.   And so it is imperative for you to have tools to facilitate their healthy forward movement.

Your loved ones and clients are looking to you because of your passion and expertise in health and healing.  They are looking to you to help them navigate from burnt out to resourced; from stuck and stagnant to inspired; from wounded and shut down to loving and open; from scared to empowered.

This is how you live your Revolutionary life. You are an Advocate.  You are a Medicine Woman.  A Healer. You are a Holder of Wisdom.  You are a Leader.  You hold visions of women living beautiful, impactful lives.

Perhaps you have spent years honing your skills in the pursuit of your own healing and then the healing of women. 

And maybe over the past few years you have noticed that you are not getting the results that you want for your clients or perhaps, it is merely that you want deeper, more transformational results using Plant Medicine.  You know that you can do MORE and you are ready for a system that offers you a clear path to lead others on their own healing journeys.

  • Have you been looking for tools that will “fast-track” your clients emotional healing, in a therapeutic way?
  • Do you ever feel that you do great work with your clients and then their health (emotional or physical) plateaus?
  • Do you want to learn how to use plant medicines to address trauma?
  • Do you feel that there is a piece of your practice missing… and you are ready to delve deep into healing from the root?
  • Are you curious about working with the subconscious?  Supporting your clients to find their blindspots and shift patterns?
  • Have you known for many years that there is a direct correlation between emotional health and physical health but aren’t sure how to translate this into healing for your clients?

For many years, I studied and practiced herbal medicine.  I began my studies in college, writing my thesis on Plant Spirit Medicine and the efficacy of this healing modality.  From there, I studied with renowned herbalists including Rosemaryflower essences Gladstar, Amanda Mcquade Crawford, and Aviva Jill Romm.

Six years into my studies, I started feeling that herbal medicine wasn’t getting to the root, to the core.  I was focusing on the symptoms rather than what was actually creating the imbalance in the first place.  And that lead me to studying Flower Essence Therapy and deepening into Plant Spirit Medicine, and Shamanic Counseling.

Over the last sixteen years, I have heard the stories of women navigating various pains and traumas from the past that are obstructing their happiness in the present.  Each woman looking for tools and healing that will allow them to create healthier boundaries, heal rifts in parent relationships, go deeper in sexual and intimate relationships, follow their passions, make more money.   They are looking for emotional freedom even if those are not the words they would use…. They are seeking to be Free (or less defined) of their self-judgements, self-hatred, and self-deprecation.

Many of these same women are experiencing feminine physical health issues like painful or absent menstrual cycles, endometriosis, fibroids, cysts, low libido, PCOS, and mood swings.  And I know that there is an intimate connection between what is present in the psyche and what is then present in the body.  Any emotional wound that is untreated or unprocessed will show up somehow in a woman’s life.  Either emotionally or physically.  

And I know that Flower Essences can address the emotional pains that are wreaking havoc mentally or physically.  I have seen this time and time again, with no exception. Plants are limitless in their ability to heal. They have facilitated great healing in me and my clients and students from the inside out.  And I continue to learn from their generosity every single day.

This program was everything I was looking for….

Danielle SeidenglanzWhere to begin? This is a program that really changed the way I look at plant medicine. And at the same time, it really helped me to grow and learn so much about myself. It was a life changing experience for me.The most valuable things I’ve learned is how powerful our intuition is and how to connect with Spirit for guidance. This insight has changed how I view the world, make decisions and connect with others. Also, I know this sounds obvious, but this program showed me how powerful Flower Essences are as a healing modality – both emotionally and physically.The retreat was amazing! This is where I really connected with the plants and flowers… and the shamanic journeys really had a tremendous impact on me. Not that I ever doubted the presence of spirit before but after my experiences at the retreat, I’m just amazed that this presence lives with us everyday, in everything and that we can connect with it. So cool! Flower essences and plant medicine are such an inspiration and I feel so grateful that I’ve found something that I feel so passionate about!

Danielle Seidenglanz

My prayers to learn the Flower Essences were answered and I knew Joanne Ameya was the ONE I needed to learn from….

Since I stumbled upon Joanne Ameya online, my life has radically changed. She is the most kind, generous, and wise teacher I have encountered. A mentor, teacher, an inspiration, Priestess, Joanne has a luminous soul that has been a precious gift for me. Her devotion to her students – their learning and evolution – is admirable. I learned so much from her! The Certification Program was far and beyond anything I imagined. Having one-on-one sessions was one of my favorite parts because of what unfolded in my own healing journey. And the retreat was so in depth. A highlight. I fell in love with the plants and with Joanne even more. I am forever grateful for what I have learned and that I carry this light in the world.

“This program transformed my life….

Namee Baijal I joined this program because, well, I like to say it was the flowers calling to me. I felt very certain that I needed to do this program. And then when I spoke with Joanne, I felt so incredibly safe and I was sure that she would be the right teacher for me. This program has changed my life – personally and also professionally. It has given me clear direction about the way that I want to incorporate healing work and film in my life and …. It is making me a different person. Also, the community of women that was created has become very important. I am certain some of these women – if not all – will be lifelong close friends. Thank you so much!”

The field of complementary and alternative medicine is a multi-billion dollar industry. In fact, 5 out of 10 adults and children are choosing alternative care options.  More and more people are understanding that in order to reach our needs and desires, emotional healing is a priority.

“This program has been instrumental in making my dreams come true….

Risa Pantoja
I didn’t really know how flower essences worked, or exactly what they could do, but I knew this healing modality was something I wanted to learn about. When I saw a mention of the program, I knew the essences would continue my own healing journey, and would allow me to receive an income while offering healing to those who seek it – this is my ultimate dream. So, you could say this program has been instrumental in helping me make my dreams come true. Wow.Joanne Ameya is an incredible teacher. She has so much wisdom, patience, and knowledge, and through her teachings, I have tools to offer others a life-changing healing modality. And the one-on-one sessions with her have been so insightful, helping me to uncover my patterns and traumas. I am incredibly grateful to her.
If you are willing and desire it, this course will change your life in multiple ways.

Risa Pantoja

I was drawn to this program because out of all of the flower essence trainings available, I found the Woman Rising curriculum the most comprehensive. Going into the program, I was looking to help people heal themselves. I didn’t realize I would come out so dramatically transformed myself. The program has taught me how to heal painful events from my past, establish boundaries, and step out as a practitioner and I’ve doubled my business income. I would recommend this training with my whole heart and soul!
