An Interdisciplinary Approach to An Inspired Life: About Gaye

Having studied with a number of principal flower remedy practitioners and producers, she completed her initial training in 1997 with the Dr. Edward Bach Foundation and was amongst the early group of practitioners in the United States to be listed on the foundation’s International Register of Bach Practitioners.
