Homeopathy Study Group via Teleclass - and 'Members Only' Section for Homeopathy Continuing Education
Many wildlife rehabilitators have found classical homeopathy to have significantly contributed to the recovery of many wild animals. Like others around the world, they have found homeopathy to be a challenging medical system to learn and apply. Since 1997, WildAgain Wildlife Rehabilitation has offered Homeopathy and Wildlife seminars to help teach homeopathy and how it may be used with acute conditions in wildlife.
We are extremely aware that this modality takes much more than a two-day seminar to really learn well, even for acute conditions. Reading homeopathic literature is an excellent way to build understanding of homeopathy, but can be difficult to do alone. Attending training and conferences are great ways to learn, but can be expensive. Attending a homeopathy school can provide in-depth education for someone wanting to pursue a career in homeopathy, but can be expensive and time-consuming.
Another highly effective way to steadily build knowledge of and skill with homeopathy is through participation in homeopathy study groups. Study groups with monthly meetings held in a community provide regular opportunities to focus on homeopathy, rather than try to scramble to study and remember when an urgent need occurs. These study groups are often very inexpensive and do not require travel. With few exceptions, they focus on conditions related to humans or domesticated animals rather than wildlife.
Wanting to support wildlife rehabilitators learning homeopathy, WildAgain began offering monthly materials for study groups focused on the use of homeopathy with wildlife in February, 1999. It has been difficult for many rehabilitators to launch study groups in their areas due to limited numbers of rehabilitators trained in homeopathy, difficulty accommodating demanding rehabilitator schedules, and the lack of study group leaders knowledgeable about rehabilitation and homeopathy. However, rehabilitators have continued to tell us that they felt their ability to continue learning homeopathy was hampered without such opportunities.
Homeopathy Study Group via Teleclass - Simply Dial in!
WildAgain is pleased to announce a new homeopathy for wildlife study group that anyone who has attended WildAgain’s two-day Homeopathy for Wildlife Seminar is eligible to attend! And, if you are eligible, you won’t have to leave the comfort of your home!
This new wildlife homeopathy study group will take the form of a teleclass. Registered participants will be able to call a special phone number to connect to the study group/teleclass. Most of the teleclasses will be about one hour in length.
These sessions will build on the knowledge that people acquired in the two-day Homeopathy for Wildlife Seminar. They assume basic understanding of homeopathic principles and processes, as well as basic skills in case-taking, repertorizing, use of materia medica, and so forth for wildlife. The teleclasses assume and build on those basic skills.
There will be a variety of topics covered, ranging from study of classical homeopathic principles and processes, repertorizing, indepth study of homeopathic medicines, and special topics. Advance homework and handouts for sessions will be available on a members' only section of Ewildagain.org.
Many of the live sessions will be recorded and placed in an archive in that same Members Only section of Ewildagain.org. This will allow registered participants to log on to the Members Only section of ewildagain.org and listen to the archived recording on any of the topics – when it is convenient (e.g., between feeding wild orphans).
There will be at least one teleclass per month, and a minimum of 15 wildlife homeopathy study group/teleclasses per year. The cost of participating is $35 per individual and covers a full calendar year. This translates to less than $3 per teleclass.
Annual registration allows the registrant to listen to the live teleclass, or to log on to ewildagain’s Members Only section and listen to the recorded sessions in the archive. Registrants may listen to the archived sessions at their convenience, and as often as they like. Archived sessions may not be downloaded or otherwise recorded.
Participation is limited to just the individuals registering. The registration cannot be shared, and does not allow use for an organization or group.
Each participant pays for the cost of their own long distance phone charges according to their own long distance plan (or calling card). Those people listening to the recordings on the archive would not incur any long distance charges.
Homeopathic Teleclass Sessions Cover Many Topics
Review of homeopathic fundamentals: principles, processes, resources, case-taking, etc.
A more indepth study of homeopathic medicines used with acute wildlife cases.
Repertoring general conditions – and then comparing and differentiating relevant homeopathic medicines.
Working on actual acute wildlife cases that used homeopathy (e.g., case-taking, prioritizing, repertorizing, etc.).
Other special sessions, such as finding and working with a homeopathic veterinarian, resources, research projects, new developments, and questions and answers on other homeopathy topics. Guest speakers may include veterinarians, homeopaths, and wildlife rehabilitators.
Teleclass Scheduling and Upcoming Sessions
Simply login to the Members Only section of Ewildagain.org to see the schedule of upcoming teleclasses. Each teleclass announcement will include the topic, date, day of the week and time, as well as an abstract of the session. The live teleclasses usually will be offered in the evenings. The days of the week for the teleclass will vary, as will the dates. The schedule will be posted 3 months in advance on the private homeopathy section of ewildagain.org. Here's a sample of upcoming topics to be covered:

To register for the teleclasses and the Members Only Section of EwildAgain
It's very simple.
(1.) Fill out the online registration form and when finished, click on "Submit". That transfers your registration information directly to us via an email.
(2.) Next, send a check or money order for US$35.00 for your annual registration made out to WildAgain to WildAgain Wildlife Rehabilitation, P.O. Box 685, Evergreen, CO, US 80437-0685.
That's it! When we get your registration information and check or money order, we’ll send you a confirmation letter, along with the phone number and PIN for the teleclass and a password to get into the Members Only homeopathy section on ewildagain.org.
(Note: the registration applies to a calendar year since a person starting later in the year still has the opportunity to listen to all previous sessions for the year on the archived recordings. We will then send out annual renewal reminders at the end of the year to all who have previously registered.)
Preparing for the teleclasses after you register
You will need the following books: (and should already have since they were required for the prerequisite seminar)
Pocket Manual of Homoeopathic Materia Medica and Repertory (Boericke)
Repertory of Homoeopathic Materia Medica (Kent)
Homeopathy and Wildlife: First Aid and Acute Wildlife Trauma (seminar manual from WildAgain Seminar)
Then login to the Members Only section and go to the abstract for the appropriate teleclass to find homework. Homework will be posted for a session at least 4 weeks in advance. In most cases, the homework will include use of materia medica and repertory. Other readings also may be recommended, most likely available online.
Here are several other books that are great resources and we have found to make homeopathy easier. They are recommended but not required for the teleclass:
Materia Medica of Homeopathic Medicines (Phatak) – Strongly recommended. This materia medica is excellent to use with wildlife cases since many of the described symptoms are observable, rather than sensations. It is well organized and has larger print than some other materia medicas. The Indian edition costs less than $14!
Dictionary of Homeopathic Materia Medica (Yasgur) – Strongly recommended to help define those possibly unfamiliar homeopathic terms (e.g., marasmus, ecchymosis, epistaxis).
Synthesis (Schroyens) – This is an excellent contemporary repertory. It is very extensive and has many synomyns and references to help find rubrics. It is expensive but worth it!
These books are available by mail for excellent prices from Wholehealthnow.com/books (866-599-5950) or Minumum.com (800-663-8272).
