Knowledge-based learning

The physician’s highest and only calling is to make sick people sound, which is called remediation.

The highest ideal of cure is rapid, gentle, lasting restoration of health, or lifting and annihilating the disease in its entire extent in the shortest, most reliable, least disadvantageous way, on the basis of distinctly realizable grounds.

He must seek out that which is to be remedied in diseases and know what is curative in the different medicines, in order to be able to suit the latter to the former, as well as to understand how to sustain people’s health.

The practitioner faces an ever-increasing challenge in meeting the high standards set down by the founder of Heilkunst and, thereby, to truly aid others in reaching the goal of full health, the unfolding of their individual spiritual evolution within a healthy body, mind and soul.

In the healthy human state, the spirit-like Living Power (Autocracy) enlivening the material body (organism) as Dynamis holds sway unrestrictedly and keeps all of its parts in admirable, harmonious, vital operation in both feelings and functions, so that our indwelling rational spirit can freely avail itself of this living healthy instrument for the higher purposes of our existence.

The key to meeting the challenge lies in the manner of our learning. True learning starts with a desire to learn and involves our inner organs of knowledge (working with intuition, inspiration and imagination) operating through our rational mind to develop and expand our consciousness, not merely memorization or the simple copying of information. You must participate in the process, using your life force to bring forth the concepts and principles derived from nature into consciousness. This requires that learning be on the basis of understanding, not of regurgitation. You must be made to feel free to question, to inquire, to observe the foundation of all knowledge so that you internalize what you are taught. This learning is essential for it is also the basis for successful practice. The process of teaching and learning must be interactive and in an environment of mutual respect. Your goal is to understand, the teacher’s is to provide the tools for that understanding. Both must be committed to the search for the truth and to the common advancement of knowledge in the cause of their individual and collective evolution as soul-spirit beings.
