Spring 2024 offers a special AnthroMedicine Conference and Training Week as we welcome both new learners and experienced practitioners to study seven healing gestures. The number seven has long been recognized as an important lens for a whole spectrum of activity. We routinely work within a rhythm of seven days, recognize seven colors in a rainbow, and even seven notes in a musical scale.
How do these relate to processes of illness and health?
How do they help us see process and progress?
How do they provide an essential therapeutic lens for acute and chronic conditions?
Guest faculty, Dr. Martin-Guenther Sterner (specialist in internal medicine and gastroenterology, Germany), Albert Schmidli (Anthroposphic Pharmacist, Thailand), and Ken Smith (visual artist and sculptor, San Francisco) will guide us through experiences of:
This will be accompanied by small group study and conversation, plant observation, eurythmy (group movement), delicious food and warm community.
- The seven life processes as archetypes for change and transformation
- The therapeutic use of seven special metal preparations as core healing substances of Anthroposophic medicine
- Processes of dynamic change as experienced through drawing and sculpture (based on the columns of the first Goetheanum)
Anthroposophic Pharmacy Course: 2024 will mark year three of the Anthroposophic Pharmacy Course. The Pharmacy Course is a separate, but parallel track within the AnthroMedicine Conference, open to Pharmacists, Pharmacy students, and to doctors who have already completed the four-year training series and are looking to penetrate further into the healing mysteries of medicinal substances and Anthroposophic Pharmacy.
