Just 2 weeks ago I had a Homeopathic experience to remember at the Joint Annual Homeopathic Conference in Alexandria, Virginia. The conference was just spectacular, with international speakers representing a variety of interesting topics in both an introductory and advanced lecture forum. The National Centre of Homeopathy said it best, "we have a roster of speakers that reads like a "Who's Who" of world-class teachers."Andre Saine and CCHM’s very own, Dr. Joe Kellerstein, were amongst Canadian speakers. Nobel Prize winner Dr. Luc Montagnier, recipient of the 2008 Nobel Prize for his discovery of the HIV virus, presented his newest research on the memory of water (Electromagnetic Signals Are Produced by Aqueous Nanostructures Derived from Bacterial DNA Sequences, 2009). Montagnier who has been quoted as saying, "high dilutions of something are not nothing. They are water structures which mimic the original molecules," had a lot of gratitude and applause from the many Homeopaths and the general public who attended his seminar.
The truly great thing about this conference was the sheer exposure to a multitude of speakers that were presenting valuable clinical data and case taking analysis techniques, from a wide range of topics. It was a very open environment, in a forum where questions were encouraged and speakers were accessible. Never have I been in one room where I was subjected to such a wide-range of Homeopathic philosophies. I can only equate it too speed dating; getting the most relevant information, from as many people as possible, in a short amount of time. The information that you pull from such a setting can be extraordinary, and so exciting.
The one disappointment that I can share was that cherry blossom season arrived three weeks early this year. I am sad to say that I missed what I was anticipating to be a breath taking-ly, beautiful view.
The conference ended on a high note, with a new addition to Carol Boyce`s Homeopathy Around The World documentary, which inspired me, so much, that I volunteered to be a boom operator on her next venture in Tanzania!
