Workshop 1: Old Masters Series – Bönninghausen

  17 Sep 2022 - 18 Sep 2022


With Karen Allen and Tim Shannon. Live online from the USA. 17th-18th September 14.00-17.15 Part of the Old Masters Workshop series celebrating the work of James Tyler Kent, James Burnett, William Boericke, C. M Boger and Clemens Von Bonninghausen.

As a homeopath the many different approaches to prescribing can at times be overwhelming.

We all have stuck cases and occasionally need to stand back, take a deep breath and review how and why we are doing things in  a certain way. Visiting the teachings of the Old Masters can be the key to solving this dilemma and revitalising your practice.

Whether you are starting out in practice or have many years experience behind you, the Old Masters Series offers something for everyone.

In the delivery of the Old Masters Series we have a team of international speakers gearing up to bring new life into the old teachings based on many years experience and success in practice.

17th September 2022 14.00-17.15 – Bönninghausen as a window to clinical efficacy with Karen Allen

We celebrate Clemens Maria von Bönninghausen as one of the first masters of homeopathy.

Near death with tuberculosis in 1827, Bönninghausen was healed completely with doses of Pulsatilla. He began to study, and became Hahnemann’s favourite student and closest collaborator.

Join Karen Allen CCH, as she reviews Bönninghausen’s early life and acquisition of skills that were later key in his homeopathic work.

Karen shows how he organised and categorised materia medica data in a way that was unique and somewhat controversial. Through his cases, she exemplifies how he was driven to clarify reliable versus unreliable data as he relentlessly refined materia medica information.

She expands Bönninghausen’s teaching on what is reliable in case work. In his pre-Freudian worldview, Bönninghausen depended on the reliable expressions of the organism rather than the experiential mental report of the client.

Through examples of his extensive clinical work, Karen explains Bönninghausen’s theories of symptom polarity that he developed and tested.  She highlights aspects of his extensive writings that apply to our work with clients today.

18th September 2022 – 14.00-17.15 Bönninghausen and Frei: Clinical Strengths of Polarity Analysis with Tim Shannon

In this presentation, Tim Shannon ND DHANP brings to life the foundational work of Bönninghausen’s Therapeutic Pocketbook as it has been refined and expanded through Heiner Frei’s Polarity Analysis work. Tim shares Heiner’s decades of case review as he refined the Pocketbook data, and his development of the Polarity Analysis as a clinical approach.

Tim reviews Heiner’s published research studies showing remarkable efficacy. He also shares his own journey from the use of contemporary homeopathy to his exclusive use of Polarity Analysis, with its benefits and improved clinical outcomes. Through his own case examples he demonstrates the clinical strengths of Polarity Analysis.
