a webinar series with Dr. Adam Blanning, Dr. Carmen Hering, Elizabeth Sustick RN, and Dr. Steven Johnson
Join us to explore the concepts of warmth, the value of fevers, the healing properties of the lemon, and the seven life processes.
1. Warmth as a Healing Force, Dr. Adam Blanning, recorded Wednesday, June 13, 2018
Warmth plays a very special role in the healing process. We will trace diverse ways warmth can work as a developmental catalyst on physical, social, emotional, & spiritual levels, and how this can be explained through an anthroposophic understanding of the human being.
2. Nature’s Gifts: Natural approaches to fever, with Elizabeth Sustick, RN & Dr. Carmen Hering, recorded Wednesday, June 27, 2018
Fever can be an important ally for growth and healing. Through fever, warmth activates the immune system to defend and detoxify itself. We will explore the qualities of lemon and how it can be used to help the body redistribute and harmonize these warmth processes.
3. The Metamorphosis of Our Life Processes through Body, Soul, and Spirit, with Dr. Steven Johnson, recorded Wednesday, July 11, 2018
Both modern science and Rudolf Steiner speak of seven life processes as the foundation of healthy life. We will explore the “phases” of metamorphosis these life processes undertake in the course of our human life to support a healthy integration of body, mind and spirit.
