CONTEMPORARY COLLEGE OF HOMEOPATHY: BRISTOL. Is holding a free seminar in aid of The Ghana project. ‘The Methodology Maze.’ Will be free to students and practitioners and will be held on Sunday June 13th with Tony Hurley.
There are so many schools of homeopathy each training students with a different approach but there is one thing they have in common and that is the desire to improve the health of the planet. The college is determined not just to train students but also to be of service to the wider community. Homeopathy should be available to all and not just to students who attend the various schools and colleges. We want homeopathy to be out ‘on the street’ and not just in this country- hence this seminar.
Contemporary College of Homeopathy is looking to raise funds for The Ghana Project which it sponsors so please bring a donation and give what you can afford.
The Ghana Homeopathy Project began 4 years ago when homeopathy was introduced to a Primary Health Care clinic in a village area near the river Volta in Ghana. The villagers who came experienced benefits from their treatment and the local health care workers became inspired to study homeopathy. Since then the project has grown a lot and the management team has expanded to 3 people, Linda Shannon, Grace Da Silva -Hill and Angie Metzger. Many volunteers have travelled to Ghana to help with the project. In Ghana now there is a permanent clinic in Mafi Seva village and the trainee homeopath there, Emperor, has a real talent for homeopathy. Local people sometimes walk many miles to see him.
There are clinics and training programmes in the village, in Accra and in Kumasi, Ghana’s second city. Many volunteers have travelled to Ghana to help train local people and run clinics. The Project has also enabled Ghanian homeopaths and students to study in India and for skilled Indian homeopaths to go to Ghana.
The vision is the establishment of homeopathy as a recognised part of the health care system in Africa and Ghana in particular. The team know from experience in India how much homeopathy has to offer as an integrated part of health care in developing countries. They have found that the best way to work is to join with local partners and offer opportunities for training and education to local people, especially if this is clinic based.
Together, the college, the team, and your support will make homeopathy available to deprived communities as a valid and affordable form of treatment. The Contemporary College of Homeopathy, Bristol, where Linda Shannon lectures, has supported the project from its beginning. The team are also grateful for the support of the homeopathic community and hope you will come to this seminar, enjoy the experience and support a good cause!
