Welcome to Present Homeopathy!

I invite you to follow the underlined links and start the most amazing homeopathic journey. Consider this text standing both for OVERVIEW and CONTENTS.
This is not a joke – its the first official webinar on Present Homeopathy. The picture will serve as a link to zoom party 15 min before its start

Can you Imagine Practicing Homeopathy in Present? I bet you can’t. Really. In present moment it becomes so alive and spontaneous, that it extends far beyond our abilities to comprehend. By no means we can control or even define it, but we become a humble witness of the mystery of Healing instead.

Up until now Homeopathy has been incomplete:

  • In classics only its manifested, symptomatic Yang half has been explored.
  • But its potential, not-yet-manifested Yin half has remained hidden from homeopaths in a very peculiar way.

When we become aware of the latter, both YIN & YANG of Homeopathy become available for everyday practice and our Homeopathy becomes Whole.

But nevertheless we’ll begin with Perceptual Homeopathy, that’s based on “immediate sensory experience” (Merriam-Webster dictionary) first. For this we are going to train our Listening skills. We’ll put the books aside and spend hundreds of hours on practicing and training together intensively in the most systematic manner.

Finally, after more than 200 years of searching, the ultimate training and practice of Homeopathy become available through

And that’s where a true revolution (re-evolution) starts. We find ourselves at the very roots of Homeopathy – getting numerous experiences with the help of the remedies.

Do these experiences belong to the remedies? Or maybe they are part of our Self?

That is the question. Looking for an answer we actually return to multiple everyday PROVINGS similar to early homeopaths. Only this time we experiment exclusively with potentiated/information remedies and not the raw substances like they have been doing in the beginning. And we have a hint from the founder about the true purpose of such practice:

None of the observations we make on others are nearly as interesting as those we make on ourselves. […]

 By means of such remarkable observations, he will develop an understanding appreciation of his own sensibilities, of his mode of thinking and emotions which is the basis of all true wisdom, γνῶθι σεαυτόν [know thyself].

footnote to §139 of S. Hahnemann’s “Organon”

We are going to explore The Role of Attention in Homeopathy. With the proper attention 1) the consultation itself, 2) the proving experience, 3) manufacturing the remedy and 4) administering it to the patient are perceived as one single experience. All these 4 processes appear to happen simultaneously!

Our practice and learning happens mostly through present provings – remedy experiences that happen exclusively in the present moment and usually take up to 15 minutes to fully develop with almost nothing postponed to the future.

If we know how to Listen, that Splash!!! is really spectacular and hard to miss. The stones remain imperceptible though.

Imagine remedy is like a stone thrown into the pond. Splash!!! is more than obvious to sensual perception. Then it loops into a repeated cycle that feels very much like the ripples in the water that come afterwards. Such rippling fades slowly with gradually diminishing amplitude and increasing intervals. Well, just like every experience we get in life.

Splash!!! when pointed up by a more experienced practitioner becomes easily recognizable even for beginners. And then comes training through the everyday listening sessions involving hundreds and thousands “remedy experiences” together with our friends, colleagues and patients.

Sooner or later such training increases our “sensibilities” up to some crazy levels. Our sensory perception starts to defy the laws of physiology and everything we’ve been told about humans and Life in general. Eventually we even begin to doubt the reality is real – it definitely feels more like we’re in a dream. One day we realize a simple truth, wake up and our training is over.

“Sensibilities” do not really exist. It’s all about the ATTENTION: not knowing, but being fully AWARE.

  • We do not have “sensors” for experiencing the remedies.
  • We do not have “sensors” for sensations either!
  • Sensations do not belong to body. They are about how we perceive our bodies and everything else.
  • Sensitivity cannot be trained. It does not exist.
  • Our ability to experience has no limits at all!
  • This ability to experience is not personal at all.

At the end we become fully aware that’s Life that both creates the remedies and reacts to them. It’s neither the body, nor “energies” or the intellect. We trace the inner and outer sensations and they all lead to Attention. It’s a Divine Play after all.

Here learning and practicing Homeopathy blends with Life completely – up until it becomes 24/7. Training our listening skills everyday also gives us insights about the nature of our remedies.

 POWERPOTENTIALITY — contrasted with energeia

Merriam-Webster dictionary

Potentiated remedies can’t be perceived as separate entities – they have nothing in them except a potential (Yin). When we realize that clearly, our remedies become transparent. Splash!!! happens in us spontaneously and is all we can perceive. It’s always our own splash – it never belongs to a remedy!

Potentiated remedies do not cause “remedy symptoms”. They just reveal what’s already in us, but has been hidden from our perception

  • different kinds of sensations (Yang = manifestations) belonging to different levels:
    • the physical body,
    • “energies” including the most subtle ones,
    • suppressed emotions,
    • rigid mental patterns,
    • stuck life situations,
    • even those so-called “past life experiences”,
    • etc.
  • the levels of stillness (Yin = stillness that has it’s own degrees of potency) are perceived like more or less pronounced absence of sensations (up until the whole world stops) therefore can’t be described and added to repertories,
  • different landscapes (perceptional spaces) in which both sensations and stillness appear,
  • the zones of perception A,B,C,D that define the awareness of the practitioner
  • much much more – up until we end up in the Totality that’s beyond the perception and therefore makes no sense to be defined and talked about. Sensations, stillness, etc. are nothing but deviations from our normal state (Consciousness) – and yet there is no way we can perceive the latter!

If you press “+”, you get a pretty long list of what our remedies teach us to recognize. In the first part of our journey the remedies teach us how to sense. If we learn how to listen and recognize something with the help of the remedies, it becomes our own skill. It does not belong to remedies anymore. So when we come across something similar in some life situation we are able to recognize it without remedies, too.

The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.

American portraitist Dorothea Lange. quoted in: Los Angeles Times (13 Aug. 1978)

Historically it took almost 40 years of trials for S .Hahnemann to travel the path from raw substances to 30C. Because of such a long and gradual transition homeopaths have missed the essential difference between substances and potencies:


Raw active substances cause symptoms by inducing the pharmacological effect. They act (Yang). Substances have their own qualities. We can explore these and get more or less repeatable results and that’s pretty scientific. We can prove substances and describe their effects.


But potentiated remedies deprived of that active component can’t cause anything (Yin). It’s we who react according the present interest by revealing and realizing our own potential. It is impossible to explore or experience potentiated remedies as something separate from ourselves.

Causing and revealing. Yang and Yin. It’s all the knowledge you need to dive into Present Homeopathy. Everything else is practice.

Understanding this simple principle we end up with the elaborated methodology of having multiple mutual proving experiences together with each of our chronic patients right during the consultation process! Here we do not prescribe remedies anymore, but we sit and listen – and remedies start to reveal what has been hidden.

That enables us to feel extremely comfortable in chronic cases where symptoms are sparse, vague and unimportant while pointing to some essential aspects are hidden.

Instead of asking numerous questions, we may simply recognize a misty landscape (a perceptual totality without any evident sensations manifested yet) and then particular remedy from that set reveals the details that have been hidden behind the disease.

Two opposite approaches to totality

It’s a perfect and extremely homeopathic approach to chronic diseases (Yin, hidden) that’s just the opposite to classical symptomatic prescribing (Yang, manifested). Methodology appears to be radically different, but nevertheless the principles remain the same.

It’s actually what S. Hahnemann had been searching for all his remaining life. Ridiculously, he had been carrying the key in his pocket from the very beginning! It’s the proving experience per se, i.e. happening live, perceived in the present moment, even before it is translated into words.

Our remedies relieve when prescribed in acute cases, but reveal in chronic ones when used in “a proving mode”!

4 remedies for revealing the Totality

Imagine each consultation becomes a series of proving experiences with one remedy opening the door to another – up until we make a full circle coming back to where we started, but with a completely new and perfectly natural balance. That’s exactly how remedies reveal the Totality in chronic cases.

Provings become 100% implemented into everyday consultation practice and they address our patients rather than remedies

  • They become much safer: by testing and listening to patient’s spontaneous reactions we handle the choice of the remedy to the present interest. We do not prescribe the remedy!
  • Finding the right remedy for proving experience become as natural as observing the patient walking the exhibition and spontaneously stopping at the item that catches his/her attention. We are not in charge anymore – we simply witness the provings happening spontaneously.
  • Revealing means healing in most of instances as old traumas, suppressed emotions, latent infections, etc. are brought to the surface in an instant. We read the remedy afterwards together with our patient to understand the experience better.
  • They are much more effective than traditional provings: they are much more precise and give real and instant results and they provide us with much deeper insights about both remedies and patients. Eventually they reveal the nature of our remedies and ourselves.
  • They transform our whole practice including how we perceive our patients.

Imagine in some 10 years of practice you undergo 10-20 thousands of deep proving experiences, each surpassing your personal sensitivity and surprising you greatly. All that results in the professional growth that would normally require many homeopathic lives to accomplish.

Present Homeopathy offers unprecedented systematic and methodological approach to homeopathic practice.

We do not have to invent new methodology. We use interdisciplinary approach. We learn and practice together with our holistic colleagues: Listening is the universal language that equally suits all the existing remedies and methods.

  • We widen our perception by embracing numerous sets of remedies and techniques belonging to different traditions. That opens up multiple perceptual horizons (perceived and recognized as landscapes) homeopaths have never been aware of.
  • But that also gives ultimate depth. By comparing these amazingly different remedies (sensations, landscapes) and approaches we not only learn to recognize the subtlest details, but eventually we come to the very Essence that’s behind them and is the same for every healing method ever used.

We end up with the most intimate (and finite!) relationship with remedies homeopaths haven’t even dreamed about. All the questions regarding our remedies, their mode of action, potencies, methodology, etc. dissolve in that. Here is the hint: actually, our remedies have nothing to do with outer phenomena like energies, vibrations, quantum physics stuff, water memory, etc. That’s going to be a huge disappointment for most homeopathic practitioners.

It’s more of an inward journey. The path leads us through a series of pretty radical and painful personal paradigm shifts, starting from 0°, traversing Shamanic Homeopathy at 180° and eventually arriving at 360° where outer and inner make no sense at all. Here remedies become transparent: they do not stand in between us and our patients anymore, but actually encompass all the phases at once.

When you discover “this hidden spirit-like power in the inner wesen of medicines” (§20 of “Organon“), your Homeopathy becomes Present and you understand… who you are!

None of the observations we make on others are nearly as interesting as those we make on ourselves. […] 
By means of such remarkable observations, he will develop an understanding appreciation of his own sensibilities, of his mode of thinking and emotions which is the basis of all true wisdom, γνῶθι σεαυτόν [know thyself].

footnote to §139 of S. Hahnemann’s “Organon”

Knowing thyself” appears to extend so much deeper than “thinking and emotions“. Knowledge of our Self is… ultimate!

That’s the most beautiful homeopathic journey one can imagine. But it definitely seems too good to be true, doesn’t it?

Well, it all that comes at a price not everyone is willing to pay. This path is too simple, too practical and therefore too painful for most of our classical colleagues. And you’re going to loose literally everything in this quest for the ultimate.

This path is very much like making a remedy out of the practitioner, i.e. out of ourselves. Homeopaths think potentiation makes a remedy stronger. Well, why not to try it on yourself? If we travel together we are going to make it our everyday practice: imagine each day rising your potency by one degree. You don’t need succussions or triturations for that – attention is more than enough.

It feels amazing at first: our life becomes full of growth and discoveries. But only up until we reach 180°. As you pass that point and start descending into Yin side, you discover it’s just the opposite. It’s about dissolving, loosing, getting rid of everything that is too much – up until nothing, but a pure Potential is left. The latter appears to be the pure Consciousness, i.e. the Self.

In Present Homeopathy we gain nothing, but end up in discovering beauty in simplicity. We start perceiving Remedies as Movies that We Watch or paintings at the exhibition or books we read – so simple and perceptual they become.

Our remedies are not something that’s targeted to the future. They are for full immersive experience of present moment!

Here we may also consider Homeopath as a librarian who’s job is to help the reader to choose the most important book in his life.

Having returned to 0/360° we cease to be remedy-oriented and start to perceive our patients just as they are. When the whole perception becomes transparent, we get rid of prejudices and start perceiving Homeopathy just as it is – present. It appears to be extremely diverse and spontaneous, much more beautiful but also very different from what most homeopaths have ever imagined.

A note to the reader

Everything I try to share with you is based on pure practice of taking part in more than 15.000 proving experiences witnessed in different bodies and different worlds.

All that results in Present Homeopathy which is all about practice. It’s a living tradition that is transmitted not verbally, not as knowledge or philosophy, but… as bare experience. You can’t write it down. It is recognized as sensations, landscapes or stillness we experience, not words. You can’t even remember these as each time they are different! And ultimately, the true learning happens at the “endpoints” of consultation (as James Jealous, D.O. calls them) – when both sensations and stillness make no sense anymore and all that remains is Totality.

live Listening experience, Q & A

Starting on

The path begins with listening, i.e. learning to recognize sensations we experience with the remedies. Special sets of remedies and techniques enable us to approach the different realms of sensations in a very methodical and systematic manner: beginning with a physical body and ending up with the very depths of our souls. Everything is perceptible. Nothing is hidden.

So actually sitting together for a while could definitely make a much deeper impression than reading all these texts. Well, the latter are here merely to test your attention. If you find them worth reading it may be worth meeting and Listening as well. Perhaps, zoom sessions are a good place to start.
