Over the last few years I feel like I have come to a greater maturity in my practice. I have been studying and practicing homeopathy for 30 years, so I ought to have. I have learned the traditional homeopathic methods and have studied from the old masters. I have also studied and learned from the young innovators and system builders. I have emerged from all of this realizing that no one has a monopoly on the truth. If you accept the old and reject the new you lose out on a tremendous amount of wonderful information and innovation that can be of great benefit to people. If you accept the new and reject the old, likewise there is much missed. I have distilled a new understanding from my experiences, and I call it “The Method of No Method.”
Now my head is full of information, full of ideas, and I realize that the truth doesn’t lie in any of that. Homeopathy is an enormous mystery like life itself, encompassing everything and greater than our human understanding can fathom. One thing people realize at the very beginning of their homeopathic training is that logic and reason just don’t cut it. We cannot learn remedies and systems by using these tools alone, because the substances from which the remedies are made are of divine origin and not man made origin, and they do not fit in with man’s rules.
We have to develop other parts of ourselves, other ways of perceiving and faculties in order to understand remedy pictures, homeopathic philosophy and people in states of health and illness. Right now the method I follow is a method of no method. If I find myself going to a method, such as the Sankaran method, and thinking in those terms, I know that I am not in the big mind state I need to be in to sense what I need to do for the person sitting across from me. The information and knowledge is there, but I do not limit my thinking and my perceiving by it.
Finally I want to say that I really enjoy my work. I love talking to people in a deep way. I love getting to know them. I cannot imagine doing anything that is more fun or has more meaning for me. Actually there are a few things that I do enjoy equally, but it sure is at the top of the list.
Note regarding blog comments:
I appreciate your visiting my website and reading my articles and taking the time to write your comments. I welcome your comments and will post them if it looks like what you have to say will be helpful to others. I may not write a comment back, but will let the article itself present my point of view.
I am no longer responding to people’s questions regarding personal health matters on my blog, because it becomes stressful for me due to the volume of such questions that I get.
Also there is no way I can actually answer these questions properly without familiarizing myself with the person’s health.
For anyone who is interested in working with me, please complete the appropriate questionnaire and send it to me. This way I will know that you are ready to move forward with a consultation.
I wish you the best of health.
Peace be with you,
