Summer School 2013

Tue 23 Jul 2013 – Mon 29 Jul 2013

    The Hahnemann College is pleased to announce the agenda for its annual Summer School conference in July 2013.

    This year we are offering an additional workshop on Anthroposophic Orgonomic Heilkunst for those interested immediately before the annual Summer School conference. More details on this will follow.

    The dates of this year’s sessions are below. We are also pleased to announce that this year we will offer two options for attendance: in-person or on-line.

    As always Summer School is open to one and all and this year’s program is a great introduction for those wondering what it might be like to study with the HCH. If you ever wanted to attend, this is the year!

    Mark it on your calendar and plan to be there, this year’s conference looks to be great!

    Anthroposophic Orgonomic Heilkunst

    The Idea of Life – Its Historical, Philosophical and Scientific Meaning and Role in Romantic Healthcare

    The Idea of Life is the very foundation for Romantic Healthcare (Heilsorge). It is essential to understand the Idea of Life in order to confront and deal with the complex system of belief of our age. It is not enough to remove individual beliefs, but we must also strike at the very entire structure as it affects us personally, the invisible matrix of our own mind holding us prisoner in a jail without visible bars and walls. As much as we can remove secondary and tertiary barriers on the path to health, it will become undone to the extent that the belief system remains. Only through the rich process to understand the Idea of Life, can one scientifically approach the root cause of this system of belief, the highest disease – ignorance.

    In these two days we will explore, with the help of various contributors to Romantic Healthcare, the Idea of Life from several perspectives. Our journey will take us from Genesis, to American New Thought (Quimby and Neville in particular), through the Gospels, Coleridge, Brown, Hahnemann, Phenomenology, Semesiology, Emergent Evolution, and Steiner and Reich. These two days will follow on the previous AOH session on The Dynamic Physiology of Mind and Consciousness (though not a prerequisite). Several of the AOH teleconferences between now and July will also be helpful in getting the most out of these two days. (Wikipedia entry on Romantic Medicine will give a glimpse:
