This six-session webinar course presents unique perspectives for seeing archetypes of both healthy physiology and one-sided illness patterns. They are interconnected, for a healthy step in metabolism or substance transformation can become an illness when it either dominates too strongly or is not sufficiently active. We will collectively explore this relationship through webinar presentations and discussion.
Anthroposophic medicine recognizes seven interweaving steps of change—breathing, warming, nourishing, secretion, maintenance, growth and reproduction—all “life processes” which continuously unfold within us. When they fall out of balance they can be supported through substance (remedy), though external application, or through therapeutic activity. The course will lead us through the characteristics and qualities of seven metals used widely within Anthroposophic pharmacy as a way to understand these archetypes. Webinar sessions will first bring detailed teaching about the observable phenomena of these metals and minerals, then move to case presentations demonstrating their therapeutic application.
All sessions are recorded and provided after the live calls, so there's still plenty of time to register! Sessions generally take place the first Thursday of every month between October 2019 and March 2020. All session begin at 6:30pm MST and are 90-minutes long.
