NZ Tour: SOUL EMERGING – Meeting Serious Mental and Spiritual Challenges with Homeopathy

– Meeting Serious Mental and Spiritual Challenges with Homeopathy –
In traditional indigenous cultures, when people undergo trauma such as abuse, loss of a loved one, life-threatening illness, accidents, addiction etc, they are considered to have lost a part of their essential nature, their “soul”. Non-ordinary states of consciousness such as voice hearing, vision seeing, depersonalisation, dissociation, anxiety and depression commonly follow this loss.
In these cultures, the ability to experience such states is often considered to be initiatory, a “blessing”, a sign that the “patient” has now access to a deeper state of aliveness. When actively supported by the community and its healers the “patient” is primed for a potential new role in his/her community and a new spiritual emergence.
In contrast, current Western medical practice has pathologised and medicated these states, the patients afflicted left carrying a terrible stigma and often isolated from their families and community.
In this seminar, Declan Hammond will present an alternative view of “madness”. He will present cases and experiences from his practice where patients have been treated with a unique synthesis of traditional healing techniques and innovative use of “new” and “old” homeopathic medicines. By recovering the parts of their psyche that they had lost, these patients have been able to transform their experience of “madness” into journeys of self-discovery and deep healing; their challenging experiences of non-ordinary consciousness into new levels of awareness and spiritual awakening.
Declan Hammond is co-founder and former director of The Irish School of Homeopathy, a homeopath, transpersonal therapist and shamanic practitioner. His life and work have been a passionate search for the most effective healing tools for himself and his patients. This journey has taken him all over the globe studying Eastern and Western approaches to healing, tantra yoga and traditional shamanic healing practices. Declan has developed a unique synthesis of these ancient and modern healing techniques and works with individuals and groups to empower deep personal growth, healing and spiritual transformation. 
Declan has a huge passion for teaching, sharing his experiences and skills. He began teaching shortly after he started practicing, first in Denmark, then in India and the Far East. He has since taught in England, Wales, Holland, Sweden, Iceland, Finland, Israel, New Zealand and Ireland; is a regular guest speaker at homeopathic and mental health conferences.


Winter Solstice Distance Healing Ceremony

Those of you who have worked with us may know that we keep a Book of Healing and Reconciliation that we pray over whenever Soul Medicine work is done. At sunrise on the day of the Winter Solstice, we will be performing a Distance Healing Ceremony from Newgrange, one of Ireland’s most sacred sites that has particular power at this time.

If you have already written names in the book while doing Soul Medicine work with us, we will pray over the book and more healing energy will be sent. We are no longer adding names to our book for this particular ceremony, but will put out a prayer to all those connecting to us in prayer/meditation at the time of the Solstice sunrise, so do feel free to join us in this way.

If you have asked for healing for yourself, or know that you are in the book, you may choose to join in meditation or prayer for an half an hour from 8:30am to 9am, while the ceremony is going on. Or indeed you may be receiving the healing in your sleep, that wonderful deep meditation practice!

We’ll put an update about the healing ceremony on our Facebook page (which can also be viewed if you don’t have a Facebook account) after it is done.

We very much look forward to connecting with you in this special way.


The Compassionate Search for the Lost Soul

The search for the lost soul: Addiction is rife in all parts of society. Some of these addictions are more socially acceptable than others. Every culture has its prejudices for and against certain substances and behaviours: Addicts everywhere are condemned for their refusal (or inability) to give up something deemed to be damaging to their own or other’s health while society as a whole shares the same blindness and rationalisations.

Death – The Final Frontier

My first encounters with dying patients were nervous, uncertain affairs. Unsure of my role as a homeopath and the needs of my patients, I let myself be guided by the demands of family members who wanted me to “do something” or by the requests of medical staff for “gentle medication”. I noticed that my responses to these demands were often clouded by my own unconscious feelings about death – my proximity to death seemed to highlight and amplify all my own fears, insecurities, and wounding. I realized that if I were to be of real service to my dying patients, I had to do some deep inner work to heal myself and find some new tools that were not to be found in my homeopathic texts.
