    International Anthroposophic Physician Certification


    ABOUT THE COURSE

    The Medical Section of the School of Spiritual Science at the Goetheanum, Switzerland is working with the English Training in Anthroposophic Medicine, to offer a fundamental UK and internationally based training in anthroposophic medicine in English for  doctors and medical students World-wide.

    The Training offers participants experience based learning processes that lead to an extended understanding of the human being, both in health and illness, and in their relationship to nature. It provides a deeper understanding of common medical conditions. The treatments introduced include anthroposophic medicines and their pharmaceutical production. In addition, the Training also introduces participants, to art therapy, eurythmy therapy, body therapies and nursing procedures through direct experience. These non medical treatments can intensify therapeutic responses to illness. Biographical aspects and insights from psychotherapy and counselling are also considered in developing an understanding of disease processes. 

    Equally importantly the ethical and spiritual development of the physician, including fundamental spiritual exercises and meditative practices that can aid such development, are introduced.

    Ideal for physicians looking to:

    • Develop new ways of observing and researching, nature, medicinal plants, human anatomy and physiology
    • Experience meeting patients and develop new understanding that encompasses their body, soul and spirit
    • Explore Spiritual Practices and Meditative Work that can support the ethical and spiritual development of the Physician
    • Experience of Art Therapy, Eurythmy Therapy, Rhythmical Massage and other Body Therapies.


    ANTHROPOSOPHIC MEDICINE:

    Many patients as well as physicians are in search of an integrative approach to medicine that embraces the whole person, in their mental and spiritual being as well as in bodily aspects. To this end, anthroposophic medicine was founded in 1920 by Dr. Rudolf Steiner and Dr. med. Ita Wegman. Today this School of Medicine is alive in practices, therapeutic centres and anthroposophic hospitals throughout the world. It is taught in international training courses and is researched* in university departments with associated professorial chairs.

    COURSE STRUCTURE:

    The Training is designed as nine, one-week modules with additional written projects. There are mentored self-study and distant learning opportunities between the modules, with additional distance mentoring for participants’ own medical work. The written work includes several essays based on themes of the training. In addition, three written case histories are required, in order to gain International Certification as an Anthroposophic Physician.

    Most modules take place at Emerson College, RH18 5JX, near London’s International Gatwick Airport. In addition, three modules take place in specialist departments within anthroposophical hospitals in Germany and Switzerland and at the Goetheanum. These include the University Hospital of Witten / Herdecke, Havelhohe Hospital in Berlin and Clinic Arlesheim in Switzerland founded by Dr Ita Wegman. The two anthroposophic German hospitals have all the specialities associated with University and General Hospitals and many of the specialist clinicians will be involved in teaching these modules. In the final year one, module is planned at the Goetheanum, Switzerland, the World Centre for Anthroposophy and the Medical Section of the School for Spiritual Science.

    The final module is planned to take place at Trigonos, Snowdonia, North Wales. This is close to Penmeanmawr, a druid stone circle where Dr Ita Wegman had conversations with Rudolf Steiner, which were seminal to the development of Anthroposophic Medicine and the General Anthroposophical Society.

    Crossfields Institute Quality Mark Course

    Are you a nurse, midwife, carer, support worker, other health care professional, therapist or someone who wants to use gentle touch?

    Do you work with:

    Those with chronic or long-term conditions including cancer

    People who are frail or exhausted, feel stressed or burnt out

    People who are going through difficult life situations

    People who have experienced traumatic events

    Those with eating disorders

    Those in palliative care and at end of life

    People with Dementia

    People with special needs

    Women who are pregnant or new mothers

    Babies and children

    People with mental health conditions, anxiety, depression

    Do you have a friends or family member who needs support

    Then learning Rhythmical Einreibung could be useful for you!

    Rhythmical Einreibung is a gentle form of therapeutic touch or massage, it works by supporting the body’s own forces to help strengthen, regulate and heal.

    In this time post-pandemic we are all deprived of healthy touch and many people in their lives have experienced unhealthy or invasive touch, RE has a universal relevance for us all through its gentle, rhythmical qualities. Because of its gentle, calming nature it can be very beneficial for patients who are too frail or sensitive for other hands-on therapies.

    For entry to the Foundation Course, no previous experience is necessary; progression to more advanced levels is reserved for Registered Nurses and Health Care Professionals.

    Visit the Emerson College Website for more information and booking.

    Anthroposophic psychotherapy is a relatively new discipline within the Medical Section of the School of Spiritual Science, having developed since the 1980s in contrast to anthroposophic medicine which has been developing since 1920.  As such its knowledge base is limited.  Anthroposophic psychotherapy research is thus by necessity primarily based on qualitative case-orientated research to develop theory and practice to broaden its knowledge base.  

    COURSE AIMS

    • To promote the development of anthroposophic psychotherapy as an integrative approach to psychotherapy based on anthroposophic-Goethean methodology,
    • To utilise research-led teaching to develop anthroposophic psychotherapy practice,
    • To help course participants to become advanced practitioners, achieve World Health Organization standards and, if required, achieve United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy registration standards.
    • To achieve these aims the course will have a practitioner research element which will adapt the research principle expressed by Rudolf Steiner (in lectures entitled The Book of Revelation) in regard to anthroposophic medicine; namely to understand  ‘each individual case thoroughly, regardless of the outcome’ by studying it ‘with all its idiosyncrasies’ before utilising statistical research (Steiner, 1924/1998, p.252).

    COURSE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

    This is a post-qualifying course, so applicants must have:

    • An international Medical Section Certificate in Anthroposophic Psychotherapy or

    • An international Medical Section Certificate in Anthroposophic Medicine or

    • If an anthroposophic psychotherapy trainee, evidence that you will have completed three years of training in the current anthroposophic psychotherapy course in the UK by February 2022 or

    • If an anthroposophic doctor trainee, evidence that you will have completed the current anthroposophic doctor course in the UK by February 2022

    For more info, please see Anthroposophic Psychotherapy Advanced Course.

    Camphill Initiatives for Social Ecology, a new organisation, is hosting the online symposium to mark 50 years of the Camphill movement in Ireland (1972-2022). The symposium is a chance to reflect after 50 years of active community development and we hope to create an open exchange of ideas.

    The overarching theme for the symposium is Living a Connected Life. Through this theme, we will explore inclusion, self-advocacy, community building, care and support, inclusive research, meaningful work, active citizenship, belonging and friendship- all beyond the context of service provision. We have invited speakers connected to the international Camphill movement and thinkers, doers and activists from Ireland and overseas whose work and lived experience provide a broader picture and context for Camphill’s vision of social renewal as it diversifies in the 21st Century.

    We aim to capture the collective insights and use them as a platform for launching new initiatives to help build more connected and inclusive lives for people with intellectual disabilities in Ireland. The symposium begins with international speaker Ha Vinh Tho on the 23rd of March 2022 and continues throughout the year with monthly webinars. Please see the full information for the Spring/Summer Programme below. Each webinar will last two hours, with a key-note speaker followed by interactive break out-groups.

    All welcome. The sessions are free, registration is essential via Eventbrite.

    Through her new book, Care and Capitalism, she provides a counter-narrative to the dominance of neoliberalism and capitalism in cultural, economic and political life. She reclaims the language and practice of love, care and solidarity, both intellectually and politically, as important sites for developing alternative thinking about social justice and social action built around affective care relations. She argues that the time to move humanity beyond a narrow capitalism-centric set of logics and values is now.

    As a society, as organizations and as individuals we find ourselves confronted with unprecedented challenges. The Goetheanum Leadership Courses are based on the assumption that these challenges require a new form of leadership, one that allows us individually and as members of a leadership team to step into new terrain and to find and implement a transformative vision. The courses – the ‘Intensive Week Course’ and the ‘Two Module Course’ – aim to provide an exploration of practices based on Anthroposophy.

    The courses are intended for leaders from all fields of working experiences from all over the world. Participants benefit best if they have at least 3 years of leadership experience. An anthroposophical background is not required. The courses will be held in English.

    The Leadership Courses are based on the understanding that developing and advancing leadership capacities requires a highly dialogical learning environment. They are designed to build upon the questions and challenges that participants are confronted with in their work. Course participants will come from different fields such as business, agriculture, health, education etc. This diversity will allow participants to engage with a wide-range of perspectives regarding current social reality.

    These courses enable leaders from different fields to step out of their organizational boundaries and develop a leadership practice in line with a vision and image of a future they want to see. It is based on a holistic understanding of the human being and his or her potential.

    This courses is designed for leaders in organizations seeking to deepen their skills and capabilities in leading with a vision of a broader social wellbeing. It will explore three levels of leadership:

    Micro level How do I cultivate self-leadership, develop my individual leadership vision and deepen my personal skills?

    Meso Level How do I lead teams and organizations so that everyone involved can operate from their potential?

    Macro Level How do I identify and realize the future potential of society at large and lead accordingly?

    The participants will engage actively on two levels:

    Change Projects Participants will use what they have learned from the Course to initiate a personal change project in their respective work environments.

    Peer Coaching Participants will work in peer coaching groups of 3-4 people.

    During the Two Module Course we will add individual coaching: each participant will be coached by one of the course leaders.

    The purpose of the Embracing Dying Training Course is to create a renewed awareness around death and dying. Nowadays dying has become something that is mostly feared and not easily discussed, especially in the Western World; it is almost as though we have forgotten how to die well.

    How do we teach?

    Soul Advocacy

    We teach by providing talks, individual exercises, small group work, discussion groups and through the mediums of touch and sound.

    The course provides a two-year support and supervision process during which time every newly trained Soul Advocate will be able to link in with the course leaders each time they are working with a person.

    We envisage this support as a vital ingredient of the Embracing Dying training

    The Task of the Soul Advocate is to help the individual embrace their own dying process. Essential qualities needed to do this work are: empathic listening, inner flexibility, a non-judgmental attitude with an unconditional, steadfast and loving presence.

    Details of our training courses in Soul Advocacy will be regularly posted on the ‘Courses & Trainings’ page of this website as will our ‘One Day Workshops’.

    Join us on a transformational journey through the life of the Painted Lady Butterfly. Immersing ourselves in the creative process, we will begin our journey as eggs, becoming caterpillars, then cocoons before finally emerging as butterflies.

    In this 3-day workshop, we will use a range of natural materials and transformational processes to connect with the rhythms of nature. Together, we will paint images using watercolour, create felt with wool fibres and make paper from silk cocoons.

    Sarah has a background in Education, working with children and adults in the UK and overseas. Having trained in Transpersonal Arts in Therapy at Tobias, she uses art therapeutically in the community.

    A one-year, part time, interactive course offering participants an in-depth experience of working with their own biography to explore their life events from within the framework of cosmic lawfulness. By looking at archetypal life-phases and using a variety of artistic approaches, this course will support participants in developing a greater sense of meaning and understanding of their own unique place and purpose. Participants will be encouraged to creatively explore their questions, life themes and repeating patterns in a way that will enhance both their self-knowledge and professional practice.

    International Anthroposophic Physician Certification


    Many patients as well as physicians are in search of an integrative approach to medicine that embraces the whole person, in their mental and spiritual being as well as in bodily aspects. To this end, anthroposophic medicine was founded in 1920 by Dr. Rudolf Steiner and Dr. med. Ita Wegman.

    Today this School of Medicine is alive in practices, therapeutic centres and anthroposophic hospitals throughout the world. It is taught in international training courses and is researched* in university departments with associated professorial chairs.

    Course Overview

    It explores new ways of understanding a patient’s condition that go beyond current purely physically based medicine, emphasising the patient’s spiritual, psychological and bodily capacities for resilience.

    The training offers a deeper understanding of common medical conditions, offering participants experience-based learning processes that lead to an extended understanding of the human being, both in health and illness, and in their relationship to nature.

    The treatments introduced include anthroposophic medicines and their pharmaceutical production. The course also provides a foundation for prescribing natural medicines and a range of non-medicinal therapies that have been shown in general practice to radically reduce the prescribing of antibiotics and other groups of conventional medicines, while improving patient satisfaction.

    In addition, participants are also introduced to art therapy, eurythmy therapy, body therapies and nursing procedures through direct experience. These non medicial treatments can intensify therapeutic responses to illness. Biographical aspects and insights from psychotherapy and counselling are also considered in developing an understanding of disease processes.

    Equally important is the ethical and spiritual development of the physician. Fundamental spiritual exercises and meditative practices that can aid such development, are introduced throughout the training.
