Here we are two months into 2016. Time, as ever appears to be moving quickly. As we look towards the students returning to College or, commencing their experience of homeopathic training, its not hard to notice that, as always, there is more change.
Culture and Society are always moving the change metre, the attention or the focus, based on the image that is currently being sold. Its so fast, most people don’t even notice! Except, these are the flat and cold images, not the two way images which connect the interior and exterior worlds, in a flow. That is the impersonal world. Some of you know of what I speak. Homeopathy is so much more personal, and, if you are reading this, then I think you know that already!
Where once homeopathy was more focused on its evolution and the emergence of new remedies, and discovery, it has now speed up to being more focused on how to survive in this allopathic world, with more distractions such as higher insurance, scientific papers and even desperately, trying to stretch itself into acceptability in places which really require more of the “white coat”, when really it was never that. As with everything in culture and society, its a bit tribal these days! Different tribes, different opinions. But what about talking the images, expanding the work through deep conversation and sharing, burning the fires of passion for this amazing art?
There are still those pockets of activity, where the real alchemy, the real cooking is still going on. It is there. We see it in the odd books which slip out. You know the books, those beautiful things you can actually have a relationship with and are not the slick, computerized, fast track to image, but the beautiful relationship of the author’s discoveries, thoughts and images, held in your hand, felt between your fingers, even written on, yes, written on.
I have always written on my favourite books. It reveals my affection with them, my relationship with them, the drawings, the extra words, the doodles the circlings, all swirling in an alchemical relationship with the book, which changes me while I read it, or contemplate it, or even re-read it 25 years later! Reviewing the images I made on the books, work on me still, like a long forgotten yantra or mandala.
Everything is filled with the possibility of transformation. The book, the courses we undertake, the synchronistic meeting, the workshop, even the boredom of doing it the same way and feeling that somehow, the passion has gone out of it all!
Dhanvantari College of Homeopathy offers two possibilities for this frozen feeling! The first are Meet-Ups. These are quick two hour get together for professionals over direct live feed, wherever you are in the world, which will cover a specific subject in homeopathy.
The second are two day workshops. The first of these is The Alchemy of Case taking which is being held in June 2016.
If you are a professional homeopath or a student of homeopathy in a qualified college, then you may be interested in a little fresh air, and some flow, some interchange, some connection.
