This class is designed for both the beginner and the more experienced homeopath. It is open to physicians, nurses, therapists and serious lay people interested in the practice of classical homeopathy. We will be teaching all of the basics from philosophy and case-taking to materia medica, repertory, case analysis and long-term follow-up care.
We will emphasize the Herscu method of Cycles and Segments which informs all aspects of practice. Cycles and Segments is a tool which allows us to focus case-taking and offers a practical way of organizing and analyzing information gathered. This approach allows for the satisfying study of materia medica which is deep and integrated without the cumbersome memorization of long lists of individual symptoms.
The class will meet for three days (Friday-Sunday) 10 times over 18 months on the campus of Bentley College in Waltham, MA (less than 15 miles east of Boston, MA). We will meet from 6pm-9pm on Friday, and from 9am-6pm on Saturday and Sunday beginning in September 2011. Participants are given reading and homework assignments between sessions and are expected to come to class prepared.
