What is the Plants Table?
Similarly to the way homeopathy relates to the concept of mineral arrangements to human pathology, one can use the botanical systematics (the order that strives to describe the known evolution progress of the plants) to create such a developmental concept.
USING the botanist Cronquist systematics, The evolutional progress of the plant kingdom can be arranged in table form, similar to the mineral table. Every group of plants in the table (by Botanical Order) describes a convergence of 2 axis of two axis of development, with physiological, emotional and mental contest.
Each remedy in that group describes a variation on the themes that arise. The table provides a scheme that connects between plant development stages to human developmental stages – from birth to old age: from unity to individuality.
The plant table explains the traits of groups of plants, small remedies and new provings. Even our cases can be understood more clearly, and the homeopathic prescription improved.
Visit of the Berlin Botanical Garden together with Dr Yakir on Monday after the seminar will be arranged if there is a little group coming together.
The advanced-seminar will cover in details column 4 – both the Dicots and the Monocots of the table scheme.
We will complete the end of Column 4 Monocots Orchids, and column 4 Dicots, and continue to column 5 as time permits.
Column 4 will be introduced :
In the Dicots: from Thea to Chocolate. From the Malvales, the Pumpkins up to the Crucifera.
In the Monocots we will compleate the Orchids – and generaly work with remedies of the nurturing kind, presenting the challenge: how to find equilibrium in giving and receiving. On relationship with mother and the family, with money and affluence.
in the last day we will work on column 5: Rose and Fabales. with cases and illustrations.
A comprehensive botanic perspective is always presented in the background along with the families themes, properties and their logic in the Table. The themes of each column and row is presented methodically.
All in all, we will delve into the Materia Medica of many of the Families and remedies of the columns, and generally go over the practical side of the table of plants, with many (short) examples of cases.
A tour to the Botanical garden might be offered on the 23 of May.
