“I first met Dhanistha, the Principal of DCH a few years back when I attended an open day in Melbourne, Victoria. I have been fascinated with homeopathy for many years and so decided to attend the open day. It was one of those grey days in Melbourne, during winter time which was cold and wet. However, the welcome I received was extremely warm both from the students and from Dhanistha, herself.
The relaxed atmosphere of the college was wonderful. Everyone was considered an equal and all contributions to discussions were valuable and at times, during these conversations, as Dhanistha called them, I felt completely connected to the subject, no matter what that subject was! There was a real sense of learning which was fun, coupled with the deeper feeling/knowing, that I would grow here. Not just as a homeopath. I knew that pretty quickly when I met Dhanistha. I have done enough work on myself in my life to know when core values align, and shared images occur. I felt that this course would take me further along my path, and that in so doing, my ability to assist others with healing, and come to a deeper understanding of the amazing art that homeopathy is.
To say I was inspired and felt that I had “caught alight” would be an understatement! However, as life often does have other plans, I had to take the relocation position offered by my job and move interstate.
As luck would have it I decided to “re-sit in” via distance, which basically meant via a Skype call to see if, once again, I would catch the passion, and make the commitment to study homeopathy. Once again, during the call, or live feed, I felt this tremendous connection, not just to the other students, but to Dhanistha. She has a fantastic sense of humour and a way of delivering information that just seems to seep right through to your core, changing you while you are listening. I related this back to the oral tradition of many teachings around the world. DCH also opens its doors to other inspiring teachers, from many crafts, who are also wise women known to “hold the space” during the birth of new growth.
Pragmatically, the main aim of DCH is to grow good homeopaths and, human beings. I agree, they are both part of what comprises a healer. It was clear to me that DCH provides its students with the confidence to use what they are taught and to empower them to be okay with that, and with what growth brings. Growth of course, being an inevitable part of enrolling in a course such as this.
30 years experience as a homeopath certainly shows as Dhanistha enrols and empowers her students into the art of homeopathy and human personal growth. DCH has always worked with smaller groups, with their emphasis always being on the personal touch. I really liked that. I felt incredibly sure that this experience was a tremendously solid platform upon which she was able to stand and teach. It does take many many years of committed clinical practice, world-wide, to accumulate this type of knowledge and be able to initiate, because that is what it is, these people into homeopathy.
As one of the other students said, “this is more than just a homeopathy college, it is so much deeper than that. It is not for everyone. It is for those who really want to jump into the water, get wet, dry out, be ignited and keep repeating this alchemical process in order to get to the gold.” ” Wow,” I thought. When I heard that, I made my mind up. I was in. I wanted to go for the gold! I am starting in June 2016 and I know this is going to be life changing. Or, in the words of Rumi, ”
