Centre for Anthroposophic Medicine at Emerson

Emerson college offers short courses, full time immersive courses and professional development programs. The medical section of the School of Spiritual Science at Goetheanum, Switzerland offers a fundamental UK and international training in anthroposophic medicine in English for doctors and medical students worldwide.

The training offers participants experience-based learning processes that lead to an extended understanding of the humanbeing, both in health and illness, and in their relationship to nature. It provides a deeper understanding of common medical conditions. The treatments introduced include anthroposophic medicines and their pharmaceutical production. In addition, the training also introduces participants to art therapy, eurythmy therapy, body therapies and nursing procedures through direct experience. These non-medicial treatments can intensify therapeutic responses to illness. Biographical aspects and insights from psychotherapy and counselling are also considered in developing an understanding of disease processes. The ethical and spiritual development of the physician, including fundamental spiritual exercises and meditative practices that can aid such development, are introduced.
