    Women's Health - Experiencing the Approach and Potential of Eurythmy Therapy
    A pre-IPMT workshop hosted by the Association for Therapeutic Eurythmy in North America (ATHENA)

    This is ATHENA’s fifth annual Pre-IPMT workshop. Rudolf Steiner gave the fundamentals of Eurythmy Therapy (the Curative Eurythmy Course) to a group of young doctors during a medical course in April of 1921 with the hope and expectation that they would take up these indications and develop them further as part of their medical practice. These workshops are held in this spirit and are intended as a forum for collaborative research and sharing between medical professionals and eurythmy therapists. The hope is to both broaden the exposure and deepen the understanding of TE and how it can be applied with patients.

    As a spiritual-corporeal process Therapeutic Eurythmy (TE) can access the formative forces which issue out of the cosmos and work in our body and soul, to bring health and renewal. With the practice of TE the patient is asked to consciously participate in the healing process. What sound gestures and movement activities are helpful in working with women’s health issues? Why or how is this so? How do we bring these to the patient? And are there preventative measures or exercises offered through eurythmy therapy?

    This year we look forward to coming together to share our understanding of women’s health issues and to practice the applicable eurythmy gestures and exercises gained through our training and through the many years of experience carried by some of our colleagues. Our time together will be devoted to learning and experiencing the TE gestures and exercises - and the forces at work in and through them - in relation to the theme of women’s health.

    A PAAM Training Group Mentoring Program Offering
    This is an opportunity for new learners of anthroposophic medicine to practice a three-fold approach to illness through case discussions.  The meetings will explore how clinical insights and more individualized treatment plans can be developed for conditions such as headache, hypertension, sleep disorders, constipation/IBS, and other common illnesses. Suggestions for follow-up reading or other clinical resources will also be shared.

    These discussions are intended for practitioners who have completed one or two IPMT training weeks, but they are also open to those who are brand new to anthroposophic medicine and are willing to do some preparatory reading ahead of the first meeting.

    Each of the five 90-minute sessions will be a live webinar format, with time for questions and discussion.  Each session will be recorded and made available to participants for later review, or as a back-up if you are unable to participate in one of the sessions.

    The course is limited to practitioners with a license to prescribe medicines (MD, DO, ND, NP, PA), and enrollment will be capped at twenty participants.

    Course moderator: Alicia Landman-Reiner, MD
    Dr. Landman-Reiner practiced Anthroposophic Medicine (AM) as a board-certified family doctor, and founded and directed PAAM’s training programs through 2015. She is a beloved teacher and especially enjoys working with newcomers to AM.

    Dates: Wednesdays, May 15th, June 5th, June 26th, July 17th, August 7th.  The group will meet at either 3pm EST/noon PST or 8pm EST/5pm PST, based on the preference of the majority of the group.

    Course fee: $175*

    Participants who successfully complete the course will be awarded 25 mentoring hours (which apply towards the 250-hour mentoring requirement for certification in anthroposophic medicine).

    *Cancellations will be accepted until May 1st, with tuition refunded, minus a $35 administrative fee. No refunds granted after May 1st.

    This course will review “best practices”, along with the insights gained from mistletoe research and clinical application in clinics from around the world. Some of the most experienced and knowledgeable allopathic and naturopathic clinicians in the field will introduce participants to decades of experience gained in the best European clinics, and will combine it with an overview of current integrative and naturopathic practices that are synergistic with mistletoe. This practical and comprehensive course covers all aspects of research and application.

    An optional online group mentoring component will take place after the live course in June and will consist of three faculty-led 90-minute sessions held via Zoom over the course of nine months (dates and times to be determined). Registration for the optional group mentoring component is an additional $175.00 and should be selected within the online registration form for the live course.
