Centre of Excellence, say our inspectors

20th April 2015

The Society of Homeopaths' report on the quality of our education and training has arrived, follwoing on from their annual visit. The following are their final two paragraphs in full:

"Student experience
Taking the weekend as a whole, students appeared to have a varied experience with a good combination of stimulation, reinforcement of previous learning, and support. Home study activities seemed closely linked to the teaching and learning taking place over the weekend. The ethos of the college is such that ideas can be discussed and challenged freely during teaching sessions. There is plenty of opportunity for informal interaction within and between years.

It was good to see that the North West College recruited more students to the first year in the Autumn, and this seems to have provided a new injection of energy and enthusiasm. The core teaching team is strong and the inclusion of guest lecturers in most course weekends ensures greater stimulation and diversity. Additional CPD sessions for qualified homeopaths does a great deal to enhance the sense of the college’s importance as a centre of excellence in the north of England and the centre of the UK."

Source & Family: Plant, Fungi & Sea MM

19th April 2015

Jenni Tree on Hamamelidae & other kingdoms in our CPD suite.
We stay with the botanical world for the morning of Sunday 19 April, when Jenni explores the worlds of the Hamamelidae family (you will be familiar with urtica, oak, cannabis) and Fungi (old favourites are agaricus, bovista, secale), providing you with the routes to a broader range of confident prescriptions. In keeping with our weekend theme of finding ways of understanding the biosphere, she will also touch on the classification issues associated with Hamamelidae and the kingdom mysteries of Fungi.
On Sunday afternoon, Jenni will explore Sea Remedies, steering our attention away from the more commonly known molluscs. In the sea we have a unique illustration of the evolution of an entire sub-section of the animal world from primitive forms of Porifera (Spongia), through Cnidarians (Red Coral), Echinoderms (Acanthaster), and marine anthropods (Limulus Cyclops).
For a fine introduction, read the College’s very own Emma Cox’s article in http://hpathy.com/homeopathy-papers/the-mini-kingdom-of-sea-remedies/.
The day finishes with an hour of – well we couldn’t get away without one tree!

Prescribing Dilemmas: Potency, Dose & Medium

Wondrous Order of Plants: the groundbreaking schema

18th April 2015

Illustrated with MM for developing age and ego by Jenni Tree in her day seminar of the work of Michal Yakir in our CPD suite.
From birth to old age, from the most primitive to the most sophisticated state of the ego, humans and their remedies parallel the evolution and promise of plants - which through their interaction with oxygen and minerals develop and progress in themselves and so move forward the biosphere.
The wondrous order starts with botanical families and systematics to develop a table for homoeopathic remedy families as useful as but not dependant on the periodic table, allowing this kingdom study the room to breathe and evolve in its own terms.
Saturday 18 April morning: Jenni’s presentation starts with outlining the schema: from birth to old age, from primitive life through the challenges and obstacles of the developing ego in female and male expressions.
Saturday afternoon: Jenni illustrates the schema with 2 hours of materia medica examples from different plant families, and finishes the day with a Q&A session.
Email "JT Sat" or "JT w/e" to secure your place and get directions. Cost: Individual lectures from £10. £95 for the weekend, £50/day, £30 morning or afternoon.
