Anthroposophic Naturopathy Advanced Schooling 2023 -2025

By working intuitively, inspirationally and imaginatively with the gesture of each Kingdom in Nature we can find the indications for the use of healing substances. By learning to seek higher forces that lie hidden in the processes underlying the formation of mineral, plant and animal we can discover that they correspond to those that need to be stimulated in the patient and the processes are the same as the ‘homoeopathising’ activities within the human being. These aspects are essential in order to achieve a genuine understanding of the remedy and its curative effects. A deeper intuitive insight into the nature of the forces within the substance (substance story) must be schooled through intensive spiritual-scientific research. This opens up a huge panorama for looking into the inner dynamic of remedies and illnesses. Goethean observation is the method by which you can let the phenomena speak to you through an intuitive power of judgement and can lead you to the Signature of the Remedy.
