    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 small group discussion, artistic work, eurythmy, exploration of body-mind (organ-mood) connections, as well as practical treatments for common medical conditions.

    Registration deadline is April 2nd!

    Here are the elements of our upcoming teaching:

    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 Workshop: 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 you with 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!

    Small group study, Eurythmy, and Artistic Work:
    In preparation for the keynote and prescribing workshop, we will meet four Monday evenings in April (5th, 12th, 19th, 26th) for:

    • Eurythmy exercises, followed by artistic work (bring your pencils, paper, maybe even some clay!) Everyone will meet to do this from 8:30-10pm EDT/5:30-7pm PDT. We are excited that Glenda Monasch will take us through four levels of activity, as we “move” the dynamics of the four cardinal organs, and Matias Baker will challenge us to follow living physiologic processes through artistic exploration.
    • Depending on where you live on the continent, you will join in small group study and discussion of Chapter Five of Fundamentals of Therapy, at either:
      o   6:30-8pm EDT/5:30-7pm CST, or
      o   8:30-10pm MDT/7:30-9pm PDT—you choose the time that best fits your schedule. The same material will be covered in both slots, with dedicated small group facilitators.
    • The eurythmy and artistic work will be recorded, the small group study sessions will not (you need to be part of the live conversation for those experiences).

    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: The full course is limited to licensed prescribers (MD, DO, ND, NP, PA, dentists and pharmacists with a state license to prescribe medicines).  

    Details about training and certification: The full training will provide a total of 44 contact teaching credits (out of the 250 required to be eligible for certification in anthroposophic medicine or anthroposophic naturopathy). Since we are not able to meet in person, a log for documenting your notes, thoughts and question from the sessions will be provided. That log will serve as proof of your participation. The deadline for submitting your log for the keynote, clinical work, small group/eurythmy/artistic sessions will be May 31st, 2021.

    Medical Student and Resident Scholarships: A limited number of scholarships are available. Please write to us at paamdrscourse@anthroposophy.org, detailing what school or program you are in, your anticipated date of completion and your experience and/or interest anthroposophic medicine.

    Lung, Liver, Kidney, Heart
    A rich and diverse learning experience, and exciting new way of exploring organ physiology.

    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 artistic work, eurythmy, and exploration of body-mind (organ-mood) connections.

    Registration: The half-schedule course is intended for nurses, therapists and those licensed prescribers who have already graduated from the training program or are not interested in participating in the full Annual Training Week.

    Schedule: Click here to see the schedule. Program is subject to change in some details (if the coronavirus requires us to shift again).

    Financial Assistance: Reduced registration may be available. Please send an email to paamdrscourse@anthroposophy.org, telling of your experience with anthroposophic medicine and how financial assistance could make a difference in your situation.

      We are excited to begin another Foundation Year in the PAAM Clinical Mentoring Program. The first Foundation Year offering, started in 2020-2021, has been very fruitful and we're looking forward to welcoming a new cohort in 2021-22.

      Through a series of ten live, online group sessions, we explore the foundations of Anthroposophic Medicine, creating a solid bridge for bringing anthroposophic concepts into your patient care.  Topics include dynamic Goethean observing and thinking about nature; building threefold and fourfold physiology and anatomy; clinical approach to the patient; the basis of health and illness; and anthroposophic medicines. The group meets every 3-4 weeks on Thursday evenings.

      The other component is a 2½ day workshop offered in the late fall; this year, October 28-31, 2021, in Denver, Colorado. In the annual Clinical Mentoring Workshops we practice applying threefold and fourfold principles to history-taking, physical exam, and the development of a therapeutic plan. The workshops will include live patient interviews, hands-on practice with anthroposophic therapies, and multiple mentored small-groups sessions to work through case studies and give feedback.

      While participation in the Annual Training Conferences (IPMT) is open to any and all physicians and licensed prescribers, participation in the Clinical Mentoring Program requires application, and commitment to the three-year program. The prerequisite for mentoring is having participated in one or more IPMT trainings. Participation in the Fall Clinical Mentoring Workshop will be limited to those who are in the mentoring program (Foundation year, second year or third year) in order to provide a more intimate training experience and preserve the opportunity for more direct feedback and learning.

      To apply-
      Step One: Tell us more about yourself by filling out this application letter and sending it to us at paamdrscourse@anthroposophy.org.

      Step TwoThe faculty will review all applications and respond within two weeks.

      Step ThreeAll those accepted into the Clinical Mentoring Program will be provided with a participant code and can then formally register for the program.

      Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis throughout the spring and summer, with successful participants admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications must be submitted no later than August 10th.

      Full payment must be made (or a payment plan in place) by August 30th. Tuition for both the distance/online mentoring sessions, and the Clinical Mentoring Workshop (including meals) are combined. Tuition is $1550 per year.

      We welcome your participation!
