Stages of Development in the Plant Kingdom and Plant Systematic in Homeopathie
11.-12. October 2018
The 1st Column of the Homeopathic Plant Table -
this homeopathy seminar with Dr. Michal Yakir PhD RCHom gives a comprehensive overview of the first column - the Magnolidae - as well as the development of the rows within the first column. With concise case studies, it shows the practical application in daily practice.
Typical remedys from the 1st column are Opium, Staphysagria, Aristolochia, Lotus, Asarum, Nux-muschata, Aconite and Pulsatila. Questions in this column could be: Do I exist? Who am I? Am I separated? Who is God? Where do I start, where do I stop? The 'Ego' is hardly developed, it is weak, dependent and easy to influence. Problems can be found here for example in a lack of differentiation and difficulty in distinguishing express, often patients who require a remedy from the 1st column are inattentive and raptured.
Working as a homeopath over 30 years and a botanist and a models ecologist in her past, Dr. Michal Yakir PhD RCHom was intrigued by the homeopathic implications of the dynamic order found in nature, particularly in the plant kingdom. Therefore she developed ‘The Homeopathic Plants Table – stages of development of the plant kingdom and plant systematic in Homeopathy’, her work is a milestone in homeopathy and successful used by Homeopaths worldwide.
Plants are the source of nature’s ability to evolve and develop, and as such can describe human development and assist its progress. Once we assemble every family in the homoeopathic Materia Medica - “as if one remedy”, and project it on to the botanical evolutionary axes, then, by interpreting it according to its location in the table – the Materia Medica`s full implication is revealed: like a book that its pages put in order, and a whole story can be read, like the alphabet acquired meaning when arranged by the spoken word order – so does the Materia Medica, when read according to the developmental order of the plant kingdom, gets more extensive meaning. Not only does it parallel stages of human development and Ego construction, it reveals a continuous historical record of mankind evolution and progress.
The Table refers to the challenges and obstacles met during the developmental journey of the Ego from birth to old age, from a primal stage of union and oneness, to an advanced stage of individuality, while learning and absorbing the lessons of the feminine and the masculine elements.
The table columns describe individuation stages while the rows form maturation levels in the column. This provides physiological, emotional, mental and spiritual content to each family of plants, whereas a single remedy describes only certain variations of the family themes. Every column and row has its identifying themes, and every order and family in it has also a more specific themes. All very clear, once the basic motion of the table is understood.
The Homeopathic Plant Table is a very practical tool as it explains the traits of groups of plants, of small remedies and of new proving. Cases can be better understood by viewing it through the table, and the homeopathic prescription improves.
We look forward to meet you!
