Courses for Practitioner Training
This course encompasses a profound study of both the Science and
the Art of Homeopathy. The initial emphasis is on the Science as
only when we have achieved a sound knowledge and understanding of
the fundamental principles do we hold the key to the application
of those principles, which is the Art.
The principles are the common knowledge of all homeopaths. The
application is an individual expression of each homeopath, based
on their life experiences. By the Science we mean the doctrines
of homeopathy as expounded first in the Organon and then in The
The study of Chronic Diseases can only begin once a true understanding
and acceptance of the first part of the Organon has been achieved.
The theory of Chronic Diseases assumes this understanding of the
fundamental doctrines of the system.
As the course progresses, the study of the Art is introduced with
classes in case-taking, case-solving, repertory work, Materia Medica
use, and practice management.
The course also includes thorough instruction in Anatomy, Physiology
and Pathology as well as Nutrition. The final year of the course
is devised for independent practice with regular support and guidance.
The course lasts five years with an additional one year of independent
practice under supervision.
Classes are run either on one half day per week over three terms
per year or over ten weekends per year.
Supervision in the final year will take place on one day per month.
There will be final examinations in Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology
during Year 3.
Final Philosophy examinations will be taken in Year 5 and 6.
Throughout the course there will be assessments of progress with
individual tutorials for feed-back.
The courses are currently held at The Leaf Foundation in Bath,
in Somerset, England.
This course complies with the requirements for the Association
for Classical Homeopaths (UK).
