Row two of the Periodic Table contains some of the most basic elements for life: carbon, nitrogen and oxygen. The key issue of the remedy states is equally basic: can I survive on my own? These patients have the most fundamental of insecurities: will I have enough food and nurturing? Do I have any value and self-worth? Will anyone even notice me? The feeling can be one of invisibility. This group of remedies has been described as the “bread and butter of homeopathic psychiatry” as they provide the solution for so many psychologically-challenged patients.
Kim will be differentiating between these two remedies through PowerPoint presentation, cases and a guided immersion experience of each remedy by playing the remedy in a large Tibetan singing bowl. This way participants will hear, see and feel each remedy and leave with greater clarity on when to choose one over the other for a client. These are two important remedies in everyday homeopathic practice, remedy states we all go through as we grow into healthy adults. Come and join her in exploring them!
‘Wondrous Order – the Table of Plants’ is a new book of plant remedies by Michal Yakir, which offers a different way of understanding cases and remedies. She has developed a table, which uses the Cronquist order of evolution from the most primitive plants (Magnolids) to the most recently evolved (Asterids).
How often have you been intrigued by a peculiar rubric in the repertory? In this workshop, we will examine how often-overlooked or bizarre rubrics can give deeper insight into our remedies and see how this technique can also be applied to our patients’ symptoms, helping with remedy selection. Physiology and psychology are united at the fundamental level. Thus, all symptoms no matter how diverse are expressions of this basic pattern. For example, ‘Singing, involuntarily, on hearing a single note sung’ is echoed by ‘Metrorrhagia from slightest motion’. As well as Crocus sativa, we will also explore Berberis, Mancinella and Podophyllum, amongst others.
