A career in natural therapies or learning the basics of homeopathy

It looks as though we're on a learning trajectory

Recently, The Aurum Project posted a blog on where to study homeopathy.  The rate of interest was really quite exciting.  This tells us that people are interested enough in homeopathy to potentially invest time and funds into either learning more about the basics of homeopathy, to start a new career in natural therapies, adding a new modality to their belts, or deepening their already established homeopathy practice. 

Whether students are learning for the benefit of being able to treat themselves and their family members, or developing their own practices, either option is a real win for the natural health industry and for the future growth of homeopathy.

Our Gold and Corporate Members offer numerous options for where to study homeopathy

After seeing these results, it occurred to us that several of our Gold Members at The Aurum Project offer courses for these reasons.  Among this group of avid supporters of The Aurum Project you will find courses on:

  • Homeobotanicals
  • Classical homeopathy diplomas
  • Post graduates
  • Homeopathy at home for families
  • Essential skills to become independent healthcare practitioners
  • Homeopathy for doulas
  • Mentoring programs for practitioners
  • Homeopathy for animal health

Most of these courses are offered in an online format, which allow you to study where ever you are situated and with all the convenience.

Restoring Health

Ann Manning is a homeopath and psychology graduate, teaching  a variety of short courses including introductory ‘Homeopathy at Home’, Unravelling Unworthiness, which is based in part on dealing with trauma and nurturing self-compassion.  In 2018, Ann learned about the Mindful Self-Compassion course – it made her “heart sing” - and she completed her teacher training that year. Ann has now adapted the 8-week 3-hour course into two shorter, more accessible formats which Ann now teaches both live and online.

Holistic Mentoring for Homeopaths

Dimple Kirpalani runs Holistic Mentoring for Homeopaths from beginners to established  practitioners.  She has had tremendous experience in the various fields of Medicine and Homoeopathy.

For Dimple, homeopathy practitioner mentoring is about talking, discussing, and looking at same case in a hundred different ways. Mentoring is a symbiotic learning relationship, focused on the long term development of clinical skills in classical homeopathy. The primary purposes of this program are to drive personal growth by enhancing current skills and sharing a history of knowledge and understanding on how to become a better homeopathic practitioner.

What does this mean for homeopathy?

As those with a knowledge of homeopathy increase, we receive a knock on effect, where there will inevitably be more people with an interest in homeopathy research, choosing homeopathy as part of their healthcare repertoire at home, and eventually, with further study offering homeopathy as a healthcare option to their own community.

The course providers, above are offering a fantastic range of courses for anyone interested in developing their skill in homeopathy, whether it be for their own healthcare, for a new career in natural therapies, or for adding deeper understanding of homoeopathy to an already established practice.

Please contact the individual providers for further information.
