The Elders

About the Emerald Heart Elders

The Emerald Heart School of Enlightenment has eight Elders in six countries. They introduce themselves below. But first a note about the Elders from David Ashworth (the original channel of the Emerald Heart Light and the founder of the Emerald Heart School of Enlightenment).

“As a spiritual teacher, I have worked with and trained thousands of people over many years. It is important to understand that for every Elder of The Emerald Heart, there are many hundreds who could not find the courage to make the inner transformations necessary to work at such a high level.

I have been honoured to have been given such amazing and dedicated students and in turn, for those seeking a true spiritual path, it is a great honour to be taught by an Elder of The Emerald Heart School of Enlightenment; someone who has walked the path within the Light of The Emerald Heart and attained such an exalted position. These people are truly very advanced spiritual teachers with highly developed energy systems, capable of carrying the Light into this world. A Light Carrier is very different from a Light Worker and the two should not be confused.

We pass this way but once. Each day is special as it offers you opportunities for advancement and evolution. Open your heart and seek the best you can find to assist you on your journey and you will be rewarded.”

“I have worked as an Emerald Heart Practitioner for many years and was invited to join the Council of Elders at its inception. Prior to working with the Light of the Emerald Heart, I studied seriously and over many years, with several very powerful energy masters from around the world. This provided me with an important energetic grounding and a comprehensive understanding of the subtle energy system.

I believe my main strengths to be a clear perception of people’s issues. The ability to bring their awareness to how they keep travelling around the same old loops coupled with the wisdom, knowhow and tools to enable them to break free from these restricting patterns. I lived the first half of my life very much on the wild side of things and there is very little I have not seen or heard in one way or another. This has given me a good sense of people from all walks of life and the ability to read them and the nature of their issues at a deep level, as well as to see clearly their natural skills, gifts and talents and to help them to develop these further. Those who I work with will always make good progress.”

Tranås, Sweden

“Being an Elder of the Emerald Heart School of Enlightenment is the result of a life’s burning longing to come home. Since early childhood I have felt an unexplainable connection to Jesus, but it was not until my meeting with the Light of the Emerald Heart that I could gain a greater connection to the esoteric and mystical side of the teachings of this great Master. Carrying this Light of Truth has opened me up to my gifts and talents, enabling me to be of assistance in helping people to hear the song of their hearts.
The awakening and emergence of the Divine Feminine, within both myself and my clients, colors all my work from Yoga and Sound healing to personal consultations and workshops, and my prayer is to be of assistance in opening you up to your Higher Self, so that you may become the best you can be, so that you may hear the song of your heart.
Long distance support is offered via telephone or Skype. Personal meetings and local workshops are offered in Tranås, Sweden. International workshops and retreats are offered in Europe.”

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

“As a child I was interested in the spiritual world, but there was no room for that in my environment. So I studied Cultural Anthropology (MA), got another degree in Journalism, had a career as a journalist, editor and author, and then I ended up in a crisis. My breakdown became my break through. It took years to reconnect with my soul and it’s longings though.

Nowadays I am the Mother of the Divine Plan Healing System (the healing system for women, gifted by Mary Magdalene). I am also the founder of the Divine Plan Healing School and a teacher and Elder of the Emerald Heart School of Enlightenment. I serve people all over the world via online video (Skype, Zoom) or telephone by giving personal consultations, healings and healer trainings. Yes, you can receive your healer training and attunement long distance! Of course you are also welcome to receive your teachings personally in the beautiful city of Amsterdam, the Netherlands where I am based. In all my sessions and trainings I work with the heart opening and transformational Emerald Heart Light.

My healing path led via Reiki (Master), ThetaHealing and 5 years of therapist training at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing and then to The Emerald Heart School of Enlightenment. Finally I felt my soul had come home.

My life’s missions are to bring the Emerald Heart Light and the Light of Mary Magdalene into the world and to help women to step into their individual feminine blueprint, onto their path and into their gentle power.

Energetic work requires excellent grounding in Mother Earth and yourself. Therefore I practise taoistic chi kung. I am a trainer in Healing Tao and also in its feminine counterpart Le Tao de la Femme Lune. I give workshops, courses and private classes in Amsterdam but also via Skype or Zoom. 

If you would like support I can help you long distance, wherever you are in the world. You are welcome to a personal consultation, a Divine Plan healing, chi kung and/or to be trained as a Divine Plan Healer or an Emerald Heart Essence Practitioner. Feel free to send me an email with your questions.”

Bensheim, Germany

“When I was a kid, I had a deep connection with the light, but I lost it more and more during growing up as happens with most of us. I was always interested in humans, animals and the earth. How we can have a better and happier life.

Around 2005 I realized that something had to change, that I had to open my heart again. But this is easier said than done, because of our self-defensive mechanisms and our fears. So I started to search. I tried several Yoga Paths, such as Sivananda Yoga, Kriya Yoga, I studied Ayurveda and Indian Astrology, and I trained in Reiki, Theatafloating and various Meditations.

In 2009 I found the Emerald Heart, first I started working as a client and later as a Practitioner and an Elder. For me the work with the Emerald Heart is like a turbo lift to Enlightenment. When you work with the light, it will always reveal your truth and you can’t run away anymore from your transformation. The only thing you have to do is have the courage to stay with the light and you’ll develop. People I work with often say they like how spot on I see them and their issues, and that I can be thorough with them when necessary but caring and loving with them when needed.”

Stockholm, Sweden

“Since an early age I have had a strong interest in Earth energy sites and places of natural beauty. After leaving College, I began lengthy careers in the areas of International Banking and Transport Logistics until a new questioning led me to meet a number of successful Healers and Personal Development teachers with a view to discovering my path. It was during this time I met David Ashworth and after becoming familiar with his work, I realised I had found something very special.

Now many years later, as an Elder and Teacher with the Emerald Heart School, I work to dissolve deep issues using Emerald Heart Programs. I can teach you the multi-facetted Divine Plan Healing system, so you can use this powerful healing tool to not only heal yourself and others but life situations too. As a Master dowser I can teach you to dowse, supply custom dowsing tools and supportive crystals all charged with the Light of the Emerald Heart.

To help raise awareness of the Emerald Heart Light I run the Emerald Heart Blog at and the “Emerald Heart Radio Station.”

“My life path has always been informed by the desire to empower myself and those around me. It led me to train as a Drama Specialist working with a wide variety of community groups to write and perform their own material. To then teaching other artists to share their skills to give groups and individuals a voice. I then progressed into the field of community healthcare, sharing knowledge of health issues that affected children and men in particular. Since 2001, I stepped into the field of healing arts.

Initially I worked as a Reiki Master Teacher and found that as I began to evolve, many other things opened up for me. I began to weave the energies of the Divine Feminine and sound healing into sessions. I also began connecting deeply with nature and would lead workshops for people to connect with the cycles and rhythms of the earth and themselves.
When I was invited to train as an Emerald Heart Program Practitioner, I found that the tools I was given greatly enhanced my work and evolution. The path of The Emerald Heart enabled me to birth the Emerald Heart Divine Plan Healing System into the world and to develop Emerald Heart Reiki.

I offer Emerald Heart consultations, Emerald Heart Reiki and Divine Plan Healing sessions. I work face to face via Skype or over the phone.

Reinach/Basel, Switzerland

“Welcome to the profile of Florence Zumbihl, an experienced healer and therapist and the initiator/senior facilitator of the Emerald Heart healing method ‘Trauma Release for Babies and Children’.

Following the spiritual path with the Emerald Heart for many years has given me inner peace and gave me a lot of support in my own processes. As a healer and therapist, I have been working in Switzerland since 2003, supporting people from all over the world. Through regular self-development, trainings and courses in many healing modalities, this has given me inspiration to help people in many different ways. This includes body work such as Swedish massage, foot reflexology, special spine treatments, Bowen Therapy and the RESET therapy by Philip Rafferty.

In this time, I had the chance to train with well-known spiritual teachers and to learn healing arts such as the Divine Plan Healing System, Reiki, Magnified Healing, Angel Healing, and Healing with Ascended Masters. Through my deep connection with Dolphins, I am also channelling healing Dolphin Energies. To develop and enhance my psychic skills, Guidance has given me the opportunity to attend classes at the Arthur Findlay College, Stansted (England).

In my practice I work with babies and children as well as with adults. Sessions are also available at a distance. Consultations are possible in 4 different languages such as German, English, French and Spanish. You can reach me by email, phone and Skype.”
