All teaching takes place at the Academy of Classical Homoeopathy on Alonissos, situated on a hillside overlooking the Aegean Sea. Built ten years ago, the Academy is of classical style though equipped with the lasted technology. The Academy can be reached on foot or on scooters, or by car from all accommodation, but the pension owners also give lifts in their mini buses. Ask anyone for directions – it is well known
All classes will be taught by George Vithoulkas and Dr Mahesh who will teach the first two hours. Andrew Ward will also teach a session or two.The week will consist of live and video cases, with analysis and theory based on George’s 50 yrs experience. The first day will start at 9.30 am with registration from 8am. The rest of the days are planned to begin at 9.30 am and continue until 1 pm when we break for the afternoon until 5.30 pm when we continue until 8.30 pm. Video cases are also shown in the afternoons before live follow-ups the next day, for those not familiar with the case. Please note this schedule may change.
The International group is taught by George in English, and will consist of students from all round the world. The class is usually booked to capacity (130), (we expect this year’s UK group to fill up quickly - so book early!). The experience of the group usually varies between 1 and 20 years!
