Naturopathy Immersion

Naturopathy ImmersionNaturopathy Immersion welcomes, Julie Millour, previously a biologist in cancer research, now a yoga teacher, massage therapist and student of Healing Diets Nutrition from Malaga, Spain.

“My request to join the April Naturopathy Immersion in Spain came flowing to me as a whisper from the universe. Then I found out someone that morning cancelled and you admitted me to the training. I am amazed by the synchronicity and very excited to meet you and other students.

Farida, your Herbs of Grace was the first book I read about Natural Medicine. I always will remember how much I was inspired, positively excited and amazed by the truth there because I was discovering how the universe really works.

Naturopathy ImmersionEven though I had no idea like that before, everything resonated or it felt right, and I knew it was truth without knowing it in the usual way of information studies. These teachings are a beautiful path!!! Now I know truth was always hidden within me.

I looked a long time and School of Natural Medicine offers the best courses I have ever found.

I was a biologist scientist working in cancer research and found it ridiculous to protect myself with mask and gloves with a drug supposed to heal sick people. I left this life and travelled, educated myself as yoga teacher, began meditation, trained in Reiki and massage, then returned to Europe to learn Healing Diets Nutrition.

Since I left scientific work in cancer clinical trials I have been unlearning what the system taught me and relearning what Earth and nature has to offer, how it works and also about my own body temple.

Naturopathy ImmersionI am reconnecting to Life; to my body, my spirit, my emotions. Meditation restored my intuition, Yoga my conscious awareness of my body, and Reiki my connection with energy and so much more. School of Medicine gives me back my own power over my life, body, emotions simply by using the truth of nature.

The course work guides me to discover the work of Emoto with water, the testing of urine with litmus paper that helped me see the power of my mind and how this affects my body when I am negative. Juice fasting helped me with mental clarity and inspiration to complete projects and see my emotions more clearly.

I am also enthusiastic about quantum physics and using the laws of universe to live my life. When I feel a little disconnected I study the Healing Diets Nutrition course books like Eckhart Tolle, Bird & Thompkins book, The Secret Life of Plants, Dr. Max Gerson’s Cancer Therapy and Dr Bernard Jensen’s books, to inspire and reconnect with the truth and the magic.

Naturopathy Immersion and all the connections with books and DVD’s in the course help me keep on learning as I have this thirst of knowledge and experiencing truth as it makes me feel alive!”

Cambridge Vegan Cafe

karen-lee-12-2016 Cambridge Vegan Cafe, Stem & Glory, near Mitcham’s Corner, a perfect meeting place to meet new Naturopathy Healing Diets & Self Healing student, Karen Lee.

Karen hails from St. Neots, near Cambridge, where she runs her aesthetician practice. See previous post.

After talking during her enrolment process, I stopped off in Cambridge as I returned from a glorious sunny countryside visit to dear friends near Aylsham, in Norfolk. And there is no better place than a Vegan Cafe and we were not disappointed.

Stem & Glory is beautifully welcoming in the upstairs entry to the Cambridge Yoga Studio.

On offer were warm dishes and salads, and to my delight, warm broccoli were lightly steamed & gently marinated for delicious flavour layering, salads were finely chopped and the warmth of the baked parsnips an exquisite addition.

As Karen is a conscious vegan and I love using herbs and spices and marinations, we were saying mmmm very often during our conversation. The host gifted us with a spiced mulled (thankfully not too sweet) juice, and our table and the respectful atmosphere enhanced our time together. A most excellent experience and one I hope to repeat.

Cambridge Vegan Cafe

After lunch, enjoying a sunny warm winter’s day, we walked across the Cam, over Jesus Green into Cambridge, my home for 11 years in the late 1970’s and 80’s, a place I dearly love even though it is transforming into tech, science, education wonderland. Glad it is the new base for the School of Natural Medicine. My favourite market was buzzing and the streets full of eclectic Cambridge life and tourists. And so I returned to the train station and Karen to St. Neots and the great goal of an April Immersion glows like a light in the future.

As Karen’s Self Healing was progressing well, as were her studies, we discussed her attendance at the upcoming Torremolinos, Spain Naturopathy Immersion, and a few days later, she enrolled to join advanced students in the 7 day training.

Life Transformation

life-transformation Life Transformation of a new student to a healthy, creative, abundant professional is the path of Naturopathy embodied with the deep work of dynamic interactive Self Healing mentoring in classes.

Ana entered the school at 19 years, seeking health, strength and purpose. After over a year and a half attending classes and devoting herself to Self Healing practices, she emerged creatively into her own life. Check out ElevatedHarmony

life-transformationBefore and after photos reveal the transformation into confidence and enjoyment of the goodness of life with her twin sister, friends, festivals, making a living through creative enterprises and radiating the beauty that was always her highest potential.

life-transformationShe chose the full Naturopathy program against the wishes of family who wanted the traditional college experience, and yet her health was not up to that challenge. Instead, the gentle, personal small groups supported her emergence though physical, social, emotional, mental and spiritual evolution. Toward the end of her studies, her father called me to thank me and praised Ana’s progress.

life-transformationAs she evolved, dance became an expression of freedom and joy, together with jewelled adornment, as well natural medicine essential oils reflexology, raindrop spinal therapy, Iridology and more. She continues to evolve as a bodyworker.

Fascinating that her first Mind Map was a glorious drawing of a Madonna that arrived as a gift of a painting some years later, as though the seed of potential lies within, and needs only to be nourished by loving care and personal effort.

Ana celebrates the truth of the teachings and the integrity of the school with her celebration of LIFE!

Self Healing Naturopathy

Naturopathy Self Healing Amanda McNabbSelf Healing Naturopathy studies gifted me not only with the skills to help others but also the gifts to help myself.

I received deep healing during the Self Healing Module & in every class as our small groups allowed time & space to integrate new skills & information into our personal evolutionary process.

My biggest shift is the loss of fear as I had lived most of my life in fear, fear of change, fear of the outside world, fear of rejection, fear of transition and of all the terrible things that could happen. When I find fear rising now I am able to bring myself out of the fear space much quicker.

My communication skills have improved, both written and verbal which was a surprise. I now feel grounded in any situation with renewed confidence and clarity. Other improvements I have received are increased vitality, easier transitions during changes and my fiery nature has smoother edges.

My soul called out for an alternative route to teach me about healing the body. I always had the desire to help others and when life gave me challenges and started me on my Self Healing journey, I knew I wanted to embody these truths with commitment to professional study.” Amanda McNabb Ellinsburg, mother of a young son, advanced Naturopathy student, Aurora, Colorado

Naturopathic Studies

Naturopathy-Studies-Juulia-IlvesNaturopathy studies helped me feel the most comfort, compassion and  love I have ever felt. Slowly & surely I find the missing pieces to my life puzzle.

Naturopathy healing connected me with all species. I feel my divine purpose with a clear sense that I am doing exactly what I am meant to be doing .

I am today a different person that the one that enrolled in the School of Natural Medicine nearly a year ago.

I look back at that time and truly believe these studies are the only reason I smile more as I move forward in my work, practice & understanding, even though I know I still have my unique memories and imprints.

I feel more in control as I now more deeply know and appreciate myself, including my fears, insecurities, hopes and dreams.” Juulia Ilves, Therapist, Boulder, Colorado; advanced Naturopathy student.

Naturopathy II is an advanced class for students who are approaching graduation to fine tune skills, honor their efforts and accomplishments, and move through resistance and fear to success and abundance in building a practice or business.

Naturopathy Studies-Kerry-DerrickNaturopathy studies include all the classes the school offers as well as all the online courses, enhanced by the Self Healing Module, Clinical Training and a Retreat. See the School Calendar for details.

Kerry shares:

“Naturopathy Level II advanced class birthed me to a place where I have confidence to leave the womb of school & teaching with the assurance I have the support to learn to crawl, walk and run when I am ready to explore my journey alongside true life long friends.

Naturopathy – 9 months conception to birth – 9 months in School of Natural Medicine from the conception idea of wanting to learn more about healing naturally to seeking a womb that would nurture my growing foetus of seeking, my growing mind guided me to a school that was warm & safe, a place where teachers & students protect & strengthen each other like amniotic fluid.

I was fed and nurtured to grow strength to exit the womb. Still fragile and needing support, I learn to walk on my own.” Kerry Derrick, Family Counsellor, Psychologist, Colorado; advanced Naturopathy student.

Profound Naturopathy

profound-naturopathyProfound Naturopathy Elements of Life class was like a journey through the universe, the world and other cultures as I discovered the world of the chakras, elements & emotions within me.

I learned to root myself to the ground like the tribes of the old. I swam through the ocean of emotion and learned how to ride with the waves and let the current take me where it would. I released and fought a grotesque beast I never knew existed with the Fire. I traveled through space with the Ether Element after playing slowly exquisitely with the currents of Air. We learned so much about each of the Elements.

Most of all I began to find my voice with the Ether sounding after countless years of holding back those sounds, vibrations and motions. I now feel free from this prison and one more step closer to truly becoming ME, as I am, a voice to be heard. I LOVED this class!!

Earth Element: In the center of the room, I imagined a fire, and sparks and flames flickered from the wood onto the skin. The beat of the drums coerced, enticed my body into remembrance.

profound-naturopathyThe roots deeply embedded pulled my feet down into the ground while visions of tribes doing this for days raced into my being here and now. Energy pouring up then down, down, down.

The roots took hold, grabbed the earth, then my limbs began to grow, circling, spiraling down to the ground. After the dance, at rest, I lay, spine pulled tightly to the earth, magnetized, taking root.

Water Element: Waves crash my body, throwing voices and feelings into the current. I would like to be back in the womb, into soft gentle fluids keeping me warm and safe and calm. I did not want to leave this place, and in my own life, I tried to perish on my way into the world. Then the sounds of rain bring me to the meditative calmness, reflection into the past, pulling me into the future and then the NOW. I am water. I respect and love you water!”

Lauren Rybarz, Advanced Naturopathy student, Boulder, Colorado

Naturopathy Chakras Elements Emotions

naturopathy-chakras-elements-emotionsNaturopathy Chakras Elements Emotions Immersions was a profound class of connection & depth that affected me on many levels.

Naturopathy Chakras Elements Emotions gave the opportunity to experience the living energies of Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Ether , each offering a connection & depth that is beautiful. Realizing each Element has a positive & negative & balance is enlightenment.

Earth Element: These movements to the pounding drum rhythms created many sensations, first the feeling of being tired. Then as I let myself go with the music I experienced pulsing, light and some dizziness from the energy my body was receiving. My left hip awakened in pain which I had a hard time releasing. Stiffness and numbness collecting in my hands released as our hands extended upwards and out. Opening the body to different movements brought me awareness of blockages that need release.

naturopathy-chakras-elements-emotionsWater Element: I felt the need to get to a place of no control, a need to change movements so as not to become a rigid pattern. Then I felt I was getting in touch with stiffness of years or a lifetime of trapped energy. This feeling settled in my throat and head.

Then I heard the words –“ I really hate it when you drink coffee!

At the end of the Water Element, when resting, I felt comfort in the fetal position.

I found that the Elemental movement experiences lead to understanding from within & outside ourselves, bringing balance & compassion, not only for ourselves but to the world.” Christie Sharon, Naturopathy student, Aurora, Colorado

Profound Self Healing releases patterns of holding by evolving through with creative natural movements combined with conscious participation. Especially in the Earth Element we move beyond resistance, fatigue and blockages to renew, release and rejuvenate. Christie is deeply involved in her Self Healing and this class helped her attain new levels of understanding and physical awakening. By the end of the weekend, and the experience of the Fire, Air & Ether Elements, balance, calm completion was achieved. Experiencing the energies, learning the skills to master them, becoming aware of them in your life is a big step to becoming independently healthy.
