Recorded Session

Session Description:

Provings of Aquilegia coerulea and Aquilegia vulgaris are set against the magnificent back drop of the Indian Peaks Wilderness, an area of the Rocky Mountains known for its enchanting spread of wild flowers. I invite you to take a peek at the vast flora of the area where many of our well-known homeopathic remedies reside in their native plant forms.

Following the adventurous trail of two provings we will look at the challenges encountered during the process: the source, taking a base case, collecting reliable data, evaluating symptoms and understanding the substance and its possible applications.

Aquilegia coerulea, the Colorado State flower, was proven with 34 provers during the years of 2006, 2007, 2008. The proving of Aquilegia vulgaris, the common columbine, was conducted with 33 provers during 2003, 2004 and 2005 at the Homeopathy School International. Both plants belong to the Ranunculaceae (buttercup family) that include Aconitum, Cimicifuga, Clematis, Delphinium, Helleborus, Hydrastis, Pulsatilla, and Ranunculus.
