1-Year Mentorship Program
with Anne Vervarcke

A 300-Hour Advanced Homeopathy Certificate Program
Running September 2019 through June 2020

A one-of-a-kind, small-group mentorship program with Master Homeopath, Anne Vervarcke.

An Exclusive, Intensive Homeopathic Program
This mentorship program is a 300-hour advanced certificate program that runs from September 2019 to June 2020. You will study and work closely with Anne Vervarcke through a combination of learning methods. There will be over 100 hours of teaching time with Anne Vervarcke through pre-recorded videos, live webinars, and an optional (but strongly encouraged) in-person seminar weekend at the end of the program.

Monthly On-Demand Modules
At the beginning of the month every month, a new module will be released starting in September. These modules are pre-recorded, self-paced, and available on-demand so you can watch anytime at your convenience.

Monthly Live Webinars
At the end of each month, there will be a live webinar session with Anne to review the content and allow for a deepened understanding of the material. All of these sessions will be recorded in case if you have a scheduling conflict.

Case Study Review and Homeopathic Practitioner Coaching Call
Each mentorship participant will receive one private, one-on-one case study review and homeopathic coaching call with Anne, which will be conducted via Skype or Zoom. Participants will send Anne their case one week in advance, and she will review your intake, analysis, and thought process. On the call, she will not only support you in working on the case and identifying the best indicated remedy, but she will also personally coach you in your homeopathic thinking and thought process. There will be two time slots after (immediately after and 1 hour after) each monthly webinar session. (See schedule at bottom of page.) If you have a preferred date, please e-mail us as soon as possible to book your time. Appointment times are booked on a first request, first receive basis.

Live In-Person Seminar
The program will culminate with an optional (but strongly encouraged) live, in-person case-taking and case study weekend in the Greater Philadelphia area June 13-14, 2020. The entire weekend will focus on taking live patient cases. Here, with Anne's mentorship, you will really refine your intake and case analysis abilities. The cohort also will have a unique opportunity to get to know each other and Anne on a more personal level. On the Friday before the seminar starts, we will have an optional adventure day exploring Philadelphia with a special appreciation of the city's rich American and homeopathic history. This weekend will also be recorded (to the fullest we can with patient permissions) and made available for those who are not able to attend in person.

This is a truly incredible and unique opportunity to be under the wing of a world-renowned homeopath. We want to preserve an intimate learning environment, paralleling an apprenticeship.

Space is limited and spots are available first-come, first-served.

Detailed Monthly Module Syllabus

September: Laying Down the Foundation

In this module, Anne will overview her expectations of her students in the understanding of classical homeopathy. She will focus on the depths of the Organon as she believes that the reading and understanding of the Organon is an essential part of the homeopathy practice. If you haven't already read it, you'll want to read it before the course starts. Anne will focus on the most important highlights of the Organon in this module. She will refer to these highlights throughout the program.

Anne will also focus on the background information of posology and potency, providing insight from the 5th edition of the Organon. She will focus on providing a historical context for how homeopathy is practiced today. Anne will review "natural disease" vs "artificial disease" - and how these diseases come together and present themselves in a given patient. Anne covers how this is the background of provings and the reason why we give a specific potency to a specific person. Anne will highlight the difference between the state and the remedy itself.

All of our basic concepts come from Hahnemann - and this module will lay down the foundation for the advanced concepts and practice throughout the rest of the mentorship program. Many programs may consider this information outdated - and even if this was a core portion of your homeopathy training - you may be surprised by the relevance and applicability from these concepts in clinical practice that Anne will present.

Anne will also do a brief review of Materia Medica and Repertories. She will share when and why you need a given materia medica and how and when to choose one over another. She will share the differences between Kent, Allen, Murphy, Boericke, Clarke, Phatak, amongst others. And she will answer the question of when should you consider use of a modern materia medica vs a classical materia medica?

Anne will also introduce the Level Theory which is an integral part of the Sensations method. She will teach about all 5 levels of experience. These concepts are focused on in Anne's previous courses - which will be available immediately upon registering for this mentorship program. In this module, Anne will teach on when to prescribe according to each level. For example, sometimes you will make a Level 2 prescription instead of Level 3 or 4 or 5 level - and Anne will share why. Understanding the 5 levels of experience and then being able to prescribe at that specific level, can make all of the difference in the patient's outcome. It's vital in resonance for the remedy. Without resonance, a wrong-prescribed remedy cannot be incredibly effective.

October: The Human Condition

In this module, the focus lies on you, the homeopath. We will look at your personal worldview and your lens of the collective consciousness. Anne will give some examples to illustrate the importance of these aspects. Anne will share that your inner map will determine what you will actually try to achieve with your patients. Your inner map can tremendously limit your patients and the results that they can achieve, which is why it is so vital that you are aware of yourself in your homeopathic practice.

What is health? What is disease? What is it that you try to do that you think is healthy? What if your patient complains of something that you think is healthy - what will you try to do for that complaint?

We all have our own conditions - and it is okay - but we must be aware of them with our patients. And that means we must understand our own sensitivities, insecurities, and emotions, so that we don't impose our own impressions onto someone else and so that we don't give advice into their personal life.

Trends in culture also influence our conditioning. And it's important for us to be aware of this, as well. And if you follow that conditioning, then you will inadvertently work to adjust your patient to the circumstances of the time. Which may not be in their best interests or for their greatest health.

As with anatomy and physiology, we need to know how the human body works when it is in a state of healthy, as we do when in pathology. As with the human psyche, we need to understand psychology when a patient is in a state of mental health. We must also understand the diseased state in psychopathology.

We need to know what is normal and what is out of proportion - what is strange, rare, or peculiar (SRP). We need to know enough about psychology in order to make the distinction. We have rubrics like weeping - but just because a patient weeps in the intake, it doesn't mean that is a valuable rubric: it's normal to weep when you tell sad things about your life. Psychology helps us to understand our patients. We don't want to make a psychological analysis: we want to make a homeopathic analysis. However, psychology will support us in understanding the patient and the relevant rubrics to use in a case. When a symptom belongs to a patient and not to the normality of the syndrome, this is a particularly useful symptom.

November: Signs, Symptoms, and Symbols

What is a sign? What is a symptom? What is a symbol? We don't really know how homeopathy works. Our medicines are carriers of information at the best, and symbols in the worst. The symbols are ours because we are the only species on earth to symbolize. Symbols help point to something else. Homeopathy is a ritual with symbols. Is the feather of the falcon different than its blood? Is the milk of the tiger different from its fur? It is the symbol. It carries the idea of the substance. The only thing we can know something about a substance is from the provings: it's an experience.

In homeopathy, we are treating the person, not the disease. In this module, Anne will share two cases on remedies that you likely have heard of but probably are not very familiar with. These cases will illustrate the differences between treating the disease and treating the person.

In this module, Anne will also focus on the three conditions of successful prescribing.

  1. Firstly, you have to clearly perceive what is to be cured in disease.
    As Hahnemann addresses in Aphorism 3: "If the physician clearly perceives what is to be cured in diseases, that is to say, in every individual case of disease (knowledge of disease, indication), if he clearly perceives what is curative in medicines, that is to say, in each individual medicine (knowledge of medical powers), and if he knows how to adapt, according to clearly defined principles, what is curative in medicines to what he has discovered to be undoubtedly morbid in the patient, so that the recovery must ensue and to adapt it, as well in respect to the suitability of the medicine most appropriate according to its mode of action to the case before him (choice of the remedy, the medicine indicated), as also in respect to the exact mode of preparation and quantity of it required (proper dose), and the proper period for repeating the dose; if, finally, he knows the obstacles to recovery in each case and is aware how to remove them, so that the restoration may be permanent, then he understands how to treat judiciously and rationally, and he is a true practitioner of the healing art." We need to know, what are we going to treat in disease? The whole theory of homeopathy is found within 70 aphorisms. The more you read it, the more you understand the depths of it. This is why the Organon is so important
  2. Secondly, you have to know your tools, your remedies.
  3. Thirdly, you need to know how to apply them.

December: Less is More

In this module, Anne will focus on the strange, rare, and peculiar (SRP). Anne will use cases to illustrate examples of symptoms that are SRP.

Anne will also focus on potency and posology. After you've decided on the remedy, you need to choose which potency and dosage and, most importantly, why. In order to have the best result, you have to adjust your potency prescription to your patient. It is challenging enough to decide on the remedy, but choosing the correct potency is also vitally important. In Anne's experience, the potency has to resonate with the level that the patient is on. Even if the Similimum is prescribed, in Anne's experience, with the wrong potency the patient will not receive the maximum benefit.

In this module, Anne will address how to approach cases where patients are on multiple prescription medications. As a homeopath, it can be challenging to know what symptoms are the patient's and which are from the medication. Anne will support you in how do you manage a case with someone who is on many medications and how do you adjust your dose and potency accordingly.

Anne will also discuss the potential benefits of prescribing Sac lac and considerations around placebo and how to identify when a remedy (or placebo) is working.

January: How to (Not) Take a Case

In this module, Anne will address the three steps of case-taking: defining the territory, more of the same, and confirming it. A skilled homeopath can support the patient to go from step 1 to step 2 with no friction. Anne will support you in cultivating your ability to listen deeply and ask the right questions so that you can transition seamlessly between these steps. Anne also affirms that the less you ask and the more spontaneous the conversation, the more reliable the information from the patient is. Anne will also stress that it is also important to allow time to go deeper in the intake questions - i.e. starting with more superficial questions and easing in to ask about more personal questions like fears, etc.

Another focus of this module is delusions and the conditions to be okay. We can ask ourselves, what are the patient's conditions to be okay? These are the things that one must do and not to, what one must have and not have in order to feel a sense of ease. For example, in a patient needing Arsenicum, the conditions to be okay are to have control and cleanliness in the outside environment. Without this, they do not feel okay. In understanding the patient's delusions and conditions to be okay, it gives us as practitioners insight to see that all of our patient's actions and ways of being are perfectly logical based on the way they see the world. It gives us compassion and empathy for their experience. Further, in order to really dig deep into our patient's conditions, we must also be aware of our own conditions to be okay.

As George Vithoulkas says, "Health is freedom." Homeopathy aims at loosening these conditions to be okay, allowing the patient a greater sense of peace and ease. Homeopathy is freedom.

In this module, Anne will also teach on the miasms. She will start with Hahnemann's three classic miasms: psora, sycosis, and syphilis. She will then discuss the additions tuberculosis, cancer, and the Sankaran miasms. Anne will answer these questions: What is the practicability of the miasm in a patient? What is the delusion of the patient? How is this useful in cases? By the end of the module, you will see that understanding the miasm will help you determine the remedy, especially in plant cases, and Anne will explain why this is so.

February: Second Dimension & Families of Remedies - Part I

Previous modules have primarily focused on philosophy and theory, and in this module, Anne will focus much more heavily on materia medica and cases. Anne will also overview the second dimension and how it is relevant in homeopathic practice.

The goal for this module will be to expand your homeopathic repertoire and materia medica, focusing on these remedy families:

Anne will use cases to illustrate the characteristics for each of these remedy families and where appropriate will highlight lesser-known remedies with clinical significance.

March: Third Dimension & Families of Remedies - Part II

The goal for this module will be to continue expanding your homeopathic repertoire and materia medica, focusing on these remedy families:

Anne will teach that once you have identified your case to the given plant or animal remedy family that your patient needs, your work is almost already complete. She will support you in finishing the next necessary steps to identify the Similimum (which are often some of the most important steps and often overlooked).

There is much more complexity and variety in animal family, which is why Anne will focus almost twice as much time on animals as she does plants. Anne will also provide resources and references for further learning.

Anne will also overview the third dimension and how it is relevant in homeopathic practice.

April: The One and the Many

The one is the Similimum and the many is the number of remedies that could do a patient good. It is impossible that a patient can only use one remedy for the rest of their life. It is both one and many. Anne will explain why there actually does not need to be a contradiction in this viewpoint.

In this module, Anne will also provide guidance on when to change and not change the remedy. She notes that it takes self-confidence to decide. And this confidence comes from understanding the criteria: why you prescribed what on what basis and what the patient notices. It takes evaluating your patient's case in the healing process. She will support you in understanding the criteria and building your confidence.

Then, Anne will introduce the Vital Approach Map and how you can use this tool to support your clinical practice.

May: Into Practice

Context is incredibly important in case-taking. Who is the person (not her problem)? How does she behave and look? What is her face, smell, voice, experience, everything? We often implicitly receive this information without making it explicitly a symptom. The remedy must fit the person. What kind of person is the patient and what kind of relationship do they have with you? With you in the office, it is often the best version of them expressing themselves. If a patient is slightly impolite in the office, she will be much more impolite out of the office. We have to use these observed impressions to better understand the case. This helps us to notice the strange, rare, and peculiar. And we must take this into account.

In this module, Anne will touch upon working with small children and babies. She will focus on the special importance of observation and how to prescribe based on these observations. She will also focus on the state of the baby potentially being a reflection of the state of the mother.

Anne will then explain about the healing setting. She will focus on the entanglement between practitioner, patient, and remedy. She will explain how and why we need all three and the specific conditions for each that are vital. Understanding this supports the longevity and duration of the remedy's effectivity.

Anne will also speak on difficult cases and long-term case management (1-1.5+ years). Anne will share the importance of communicating expectations with patients and setting them up for success in timeline and treatment outcomes. It is important to guide our patients along the healing process as they lose faith or hope. And if it is a long case and only small improvements are noticed, it is important to explain this to our patient so that they do not lose their chance for a cure. Anne also will explore how a quick fix never holds. It is difficult in the beginning because a quick fix provides for instant gratification for both patient and practitioner. However, when a remedy acts deeply, it takes time. It takes skill to encourage your patient while on this journey.

Anne will also review how to handle changing or staying with the same remedy, and when and why to change potency.

June: Clinical Case-Taking Seminar Weekend

This is an in-person, live seminar weekend June 13-14, 2020 in the Greater Philadelphia area. Attendance is optional (but strongly encouraged). This weekend will also be recorded (to the fullest we can with patient permissions) and made available for those who are not able to attend in person.
