Vancouver British Columbia classes

May Homeopathy Class I am so excited to be teaching a complete series of homeopathy for animals classes – on the West Coast this time. The following is from the host web site – www.DogsOfDistinction.com– please go there for even more links and information and to register. email me with any questions about content, and Jane with any logistical questions.

We are pleased to host Dr. Christina Chambreau: an internationally known homeopathic veterinarian, lecturer and author of the Healthy Animal’s Journal. Graduating from the University of Georgia Veterinary College in 1980, she began using homeopathy in her veterinary practice in 1983. She had been helping in veterinary clinics since she was 11 and knew virtually nothing about holistic approaches. Then a client introduced her to the true paradigm of the holistic approach which includes all methods of treatment.

Teaching these principles to animal guardians and encouraging veterinarians to begin using homeopathy and other holistic modalities became her passion. Dr. Richard Pitcairn, Dr. Chambreau and Dr. Jana Rygas worked together to found the Academy Of Veterinary Homeopathy in 1995. From 1990 through 2003 she was on the faculty of the National Center for Homeopathy’s Summer School until they discontinued the Summer School. The wonderful head of the Maryland Veterinary Technician Program, Jack Stewart, hired her as a holistic modality adjunct faculty liaison and instructor beginning in 2004. Also starting in 2004 she taught as part of the Prince George’s Feral Friends Summer School, teaching Introductory, Intermediate and Advanced homeopathy classes. People from Israel, Hong Kong, Germany, England, Japan, Canada and most states have attended her classes over the years. We are lucky enough to have Dr. Chambreau come to the Sechelt on the Sunshine Coast from May 11 through 25th, 2013 to teach several homeopathic courses  to pet owners, veterinarians, veterinary technicians, wildlife rehabbers, shelter  and rescue angels and anyone working with animals, homeopaths and anyone  interested in helping animals through homeopathy. The course will be held at the beautiful Rockwood House -walking distance to downtown Sechelt. The Sunshine Coast is just a 40 minute ferry ride from West Vancouver and has beautiful beaches and hiking trails, lots of wildlife and all the amenities you could want! For more on our community please visit Sechelt Tourism or the District of Sechelt websites. If you are coming from out of town, we have hotels, motels,  and bed and breakfasts to accommodate out-of-town guests.  (Links are at her site.) Participants can choose one or all of the following courses: Course one: weekend (May 11 & 12): Covers how to have a healthier dog or cat, an introduction to the power and principles of homeopathy and an understanding of how it can help your animals live a longer, healthier life (Some books are required). $300.00 tuition.

  1. Hello from Calgary,
    There are 4 of us that are interested in learning from you.
    We are not able to attend all of your classes in Sechelt, BC.
    One of us can attend the last 2 courses
    3 of us can attend the last one. The course outline states that you must attend the 1&2 courses to be able to do the third.
    What should we do?
    Would there be a possibility of the above being ok?
    Would you consider coming to Calgary to teach?

    1. Which classes will work for you depend on your level of knowledge of homeopathy.

      for the 3 who can only attend the last class, there would be great challenges if you are not familiar with the techniques and basic principles of homeopathy, so to come into a class where I ask “What are you major problem areas in prescribing – repertory search, understanding rubrics, case analysis, determining most appropriate symptoms for the animal, etc…?” can be not worth the money. In the 3rd class, the advanced one, much of the time is spent with students actually working on cases. They need to already know how to look symptoms up in the repertory, select remedies, etc.

      Some people have taken the advanced class, knowing nothing, and were able to adapt to the “research” times, by paging through the repertory, and listening to the process. I cannot slow down the advanced class to teach the beginning classes, so that has to be understood in advance.

      For the one who cannot make the first weekend, it could be possible for me to assign reading and then quiz you on the basics of holistic health care and homeopathy so you would be ready for the introduction course. Again, it depends on your current knowledge of holistic health for animals and homeopathy.

      do give me a call.

      And, yes, I love to teach classes anywhere in the world. I would love to see jasper and Banff again.

  2. Hi again, we had contact in April regarding your coming to Calgary to teach the first 2 courses then returning approximately 6 months later for the advanced course. Is that still possible with your busy schedule? If I remember correctly it was tentatively scheduled for September/ October.
    It would be great to spread the word of your arrival and the courses, and be able to book space required for this. Please let us know, we are very excited to be able to do these courses.
