Anne Vervarcke

Synopsis lecture: The art of Healing

It is stated everywhere: ‘Homeopathy is an art and a science’.
What is scientific about it, I will only touch in short (more in the first chapter of my book “Homeopathy: Strange, Rare and Peculiar”) and elaborate on the artistic part of this healing method.

All homeopaths love and share beautiful cases. But what is a beautiful case? Or: what makes a case beautiful?
What makes homeopaths tick is the deep response on the similimum: before our delighted eyes we see the patient transform in the best version of him- or herself!
Anne Vervarcke (15-10-1952) originally was trained in arts, graduated in Oriental Philology and Anthropology and took later courses in classical homeopathy first in Belgium and after that in the School for Homeopathy in Bloemendaal and Amersfoort in The Netherlands.
She established ‘The Centre for Classical Homeopathy’ (CKH) in Leuven, Belgium, which organizes a five years training course, a Postgraduate course, a yearly seminar and an International Training. She created the programs and was teacher and director for 15 years. She also has a private clinic since 1989.

The last 15 years she is giving international trainings and seminars in different countries, including Serbia, Germany, The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Bulgaria and the USA. In Belgium she still teaches in the CKH, gives a few times a years a seminar and does the Master Classes with life cases.

After attending countless seminars, investigating, practicing and teaching for about 25 years now, she developed her own style and method and masters the art of homeopathy.

Apart from her novels and two books in Dutch (“Klassieke homeopathie, niet te geloven?!” And “250 jaar na Hahnemann”) –informative books for a broader public, who want a decent but understandable insight in homeopathy- The White Room published two books of her in English: “The Charm of Homeopathy” and “The Postgraduate Annual 2006”. The first describes how she developed her method (the Vital Approach) mainly based on the level-, kingdom- and miasm-theory from Rajan Sankaran, combined with classical knowledge and insights from phenomenology and linguistics. In the second book, she gives the fundaments of her method in a nutshell and demonstrates its value in daily practice, as well in children as adult cases.

"The Charm of Homeopathy", second edition and revised, was published by BJain. A French version under the title "Une Autre Vision de l'Homéopathie" was issued by Marco Pietteur, Liege 2008.

BJain published "Behind the Glass Screen, a Homeopathic Survey of Ozone" in 2009.

The White Room released a "manual" of her method under the title "The Vital Approach" (May 2010) followed by "Voorbij Lichaam en Geest" (September 2010, Dutch) with a selection of cases and explanation of the method used. (Translated in English under the title “Beyond Mind and Body” (The whiter Room, 2014).

In 2012 The White Room brought out two more books "Homeopathy: strange, rare and peculiar", a dialogue between An van de Moortel and Anne Vervarcke, exploring the bounderies of homeopathy and "Homeopathy is Everywhere", a colorful and feminine little book with short lines of text that say so much.
