Gudrun Penselin

Clinical Herbalist, Author

An award-winning author, speaker, teacher, and expert in herbal medicine, Gudrun has over 30 years of experience as a complementary health practitioner.

In her practice and teachings, she uses a holistic approach to wellness combining healing modalities such as herbal medicine, Bach Flowers, connecting to plant spirit, reflexology, iridology/sclerology, light/colour therapy and lifestyle improvement.

In November 2018 she shared her passion in a TEDx talk, Flowers that Heal Us, in Wilmington, Delaware, US.

Gudrun graduated in Germany with a M.Ed. and M.Phys.Ed.

After her immigration to Canada in 1981 she focused her education on complementary medicine and as part of her journey of life long learning she graduated as Clinical Herbal Therapist from Dominion Herbal College in 1996.

Her commitment to the Earth and humankind prompted her to create several publications.

She is the author of award-winning books Healing Spirituality - A Practical Guide to Understanding and Working with Bach Flowers (Winner), Healing with Bach Flower Mandalas (Finalist) as well as the executive producer and co-creator of the instructional DVD Herbal Pharmacy for Everyone, A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Your Own Herbal Preparations.

She also created the card deck Bach Flowers Unfolding.

Her deep interest in learning about other cultures and their healing traditions led her to travel to many places across the globe, including India, where she was fortunate to spend some time with Mother Teresa.

More recently, her travels have taken her to Central and South America, where she focused her attention on some of their traditional forms of healing.

As a natural educator, Gudrun brings joy whenever she shares her knowledge and experience about plants and their healing spirit. Her clients see her as a compassionate professional, mentor, and friend.

Leading by example, Gudrun inspires others to live their lives to their full potential.

I would like to express my gratitude to be able to live on and speak from the Indigenous territories of the Metis, Kelly Lake Metis Settlement and Beaver people.
