Beyond the Molecular and Mechanical Model:
Lung, Liver, Kidney, Heart
Join us for rich and diverse learning experiences as we explore organ physiology in exciting new ways. Last year, when our training week went online, we still formed a warm community of study and sharing. This year, too, we will come together for a new topic—lung, liver, kidney and heart—and enliven our thinking through exploration of body-mind (organ-mood) connections, as well as practical treatments for common medical conditions.
Here are the elements of this offering:
Keynote Presentations: with our special guest faculty, James Dyson MD.
Dr. Dyson will join us for six, live, 90-minute teaching sessions, May 2-7, at 2pm EDT/11am PDT. He will introduce us to a whole new level of psychiatric and psychological insight, as we explore links between organ imbalance and patterns of depression, anxiety, anger, OCD and other conditions. Dr. Dyson is a much sought-after teacher, with extensive experience in the realm of “psychosomatics” or the connections between social, psychological, and behavioral factors and bodily processes. All presentations will be recorded.
Clinical Prescribing Workshops: with Drs. Steven Johnson, Carmen Hering and Adam Blanning. Six 90-minute presentations, offered live at 4pm EDT/1pm PDT, May 2-7; all presentations recorded). Learn from experienced anthroposophic physicians about common medical illnesses related to the lungs, liver, kidney and heart. Special focus will be placed on providing a toolbox of anthroposophic medicines and therapies for common conditions, as well as some illnesses for which there is no effective conventional allopathic treatment. There will also be two sessions exploring organ patterns in dermatology and rheumatology—a whole new offering!
Follow-up Mentoring Sessions: There will be two mentoring sessions in the six weeks after the training week to help answer practical questions about diagnosis, selection of a therapy/remedy, dosing, etc. Those will be offered on Mondays, May 24th and June 14th, from 8:30-10pm EDT/5:30-7pm PDT (both sessions will be recorded)
Registration: This offering is limited to licensed prescribers (MD, DO, ND, NP, PA, dentists and pharmacists with a state license to prescribe medicines) and to students of these disciplines. It does not include the Eurythmy, Artistic Activity and Small Group Study.
