year our Spring Cured Case Conference takes a look at the
paradox of what unifies and what divides homeopaths professionally.
Since the resurrection of homeopathy in the 20th Century
after practically being lost in the West, we have seen not only the
comeback of the classical understanding of homeopathy, as elucidated by
Samuel Hahnemann, but modern understandings of his insights and new
methods to get the healing results he did. There have been passionate
proponents of the different methods and just-as-passionate disavowals of
each method with a plea to return to the original teaching of Hahnemann.
Looking for the unifying truth that is at the heart of homeopathy, we
can find what is timeless and unchanging:
Homeopathy is a philosophy
of healing based on the observation that “likes heal likes.”
The master, Samuel
Hahnemann, got results by observing his patients carefully,using the
totality of symptoms to find one "similar" remedy, (called the
simillimum)and giving it in the minimum dose.
In this seminar
we will explore several different paths to the simillimum. These are
the different methods that have arisen in the last century to see into
the heart of healing so that
“the reasoning spirit who inhabits the organism can
freely use the healthy living instrument to reach the lofty goal of
human existence.” (Aphorism 9)
We are fortunate to
have some very seasoned homeopaths right here in the Northwest, all of
whom have been practicing homeopathy for over 20 years. They come
together to show their experience and insights through 4 different
perspectives to find the holy grail: that one remedy that sets
