School of Homeopathy

Two day seminar with Dr David Lilley

David Lilley will introduce the concept of archetypes and how they can be used in homeopaths practice. He will then focus on two archetypes, Wolf and Raven, weaving together material derived from myth, legend and comparative material medica, supported by provings and personal experience.

Following these two highly stimulating and fun days you will have a good understanding of archetypes and be able to put them to use in your own practice.

Day 1: Introduction to archetypes
The archetypes constitute a dynamic template of fundamental role models and innate tendencies, capable through resonance of influencing, moulding and transforming the personal unconscious of the individual and thus shaping behaviour. This template may also be visualised as an underlying web of archetypal potential woven out of history, culture, tradition, myth and fantasy.
Wolf – Lac lupinum

Human and wolf are psychic siblings: rival apex predators in the late Pleistocene, both intelligent, family orientated and highly socialised creatures. While decadent, rapacious humanity has become an infestation on the surface of planet Earth, the wolf is immaculate: all that we once were – all that we should be – all that we must become.

Day 2: Raven – Corvus corax
Raven and Wolf are closely related archetypes. The raven and the wolf enjoy a mutualistic relationship that benefits both animals. In the Late Pleistocene, the same close relationship existed between ravens and our hunter-gatherer ancestors. The raven’s constant presence and active participation in the lives of these primitive people coupled to its un-birdlike intelligence, human mannerisms and uncanny ability to imitate the human voice, ensured that the Raven became a prominent symbol in the human unconscious and a frequent subject of myth and legend.

David LilleyDavid Lilley

David Lilley was born into a homeopathic family in Leeds, Yorkshire, England, in 1940. His father, William Henry Lilley, was a renowned psychic healer and also a homeopathic practitioner and chiropractor. In 1949, the family emigrated to South Africa. David studied medicine at the University of Pretoria, qualifying in 1962. He spent three years at the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital and obtained his MFHom qualification in 1965. The following year, he completed his training in osteopathy at the London College of Osteopathy. He was made a Fellow of the British Faculty of Homeopathy in 1996.

Returning to South Africa, David joined his father and he has practiced as homeopath and osteopath for the past 54 years. In 1995, he founded the South African Faculty of Homeopathy to provide homeopathic education for medical doctors and acted as dean until 2012.

Since 1999, David has lectured widely in the UK and internationally. In his lectures, he weaves together homeopathic art and science, analytical psychology, mythology, symbolism, chakra and colour theory, natural science and spiritual philosophy to provide a rich tapestry of perennial wisdom and knowledge.

In December 2007, David retired from private practice in Pretoria and moved to Cape Town where he currently conducts a small, select practice and is devoting his time to writing and lecturing.

From the start, Miranda's passion for homeopathy was evident. Her exuberance shone through, making every part of the lectures interesting, and understandable.
