Untangling the complexity of addiction through homeopathy and mindfulness. Plus a review and study of the recent Homeopathy One conference in Bruges, Belgium

ISHL is proud to announce the second in a series of online educational webinars for students, graduates and any other homeopaths in Japan and elsewhere, on homeopathy and related therapies.

The webinar, taking place on Saturday and Sunday 3-4 February 2018, focuses on the first day on the subject of Homeopathy and Addiction, including the use of Mindfulness Meditation in this area. On the second day, the subject is a review and study of the recent Homeopathy One conference in Bruges, Belgium, featuring the world’s leading homeopaths.

The webinar will be led by David and Katja Behrens, both graduates of the School of Homeopathy in Stroud, and now full-time practitioners and teachers.

The teaching will be in English with a fluent line-by-line Japanese translation. Anyone with a computer and an internet connection can join, and everything will be recorded so you can watch it again for up to two weeks later.

This webinar is sure to be of great interest and practical help to any homeopath with patients suffering from addiction in any of its many forms, as well as to all those who are interested in the most recent developments in homeopathic case analysis methodologies.

As participants in the previous webinar experienced themselves, it will also address your emotional well-being, because Mindfulness meditation is a perfect tool for relieving the stress that inevitably accompanies work in a caring profession such as homeopathy.

The Behrens’ teaching will be illustrated with clearly-presented cases and accompanied by much useful information on the remedies and strategies for approaching such patients.

David and Katja write:

‘On the first day of this unique two day webinar you will learn about the complexity of addiction, the latest therapeutic approaches for addiction treatment and how we can understand this.

Here we will go deeper with the homeopathic system of the periodic table and other systems that help us understand the development of the individual and where they got stuck on their journey.

We will also deepen our understanding of the sensation in the case and will see how different methods can be unified.’

On the second day, Katja and David will present a review and study of the three-day Homeopathy One conference in Bruges.
