AHA eNews January 2021
Dear Members and Friends,

Happy New Year! One can only note how remarkable the last year has been! As we leave this turning point in time of the last year and enter into the new decade, one could easily turn to the difficulties and deeply disturbing circumstances we have all been facing. And yet, to stop our retrospection there would be doing a disservice to the great creativity and impulses of love that have emerged from those circumstances. Indeed we have been witnessing the dissolution of old forms and structures with the ongoing varying degrees of stay at home orders, overwhelming health concerns and social unrest here in North America. Emerging from this disintegration have been new ways of being with one another as individuals, community members and worldwide members.

As healthcare practitioners we are often co-creators of these new forms and structures as we work to meet the health supporting challenges of our time. A unique strength we in AHA share is our passion for remembering and representing the human being as a whole; as a being of body, soul and spirit. In these particular times it has become even more important to deepen our relationship with each of these aspects so that we may support our patients on finding strength, balance and resilience as an integrated individual. The commitment in AHA to this vision is mirrored in the offerings over the next several months. From Spirit Remembering to Collaborative Case Studies about Anxiety to Interdisciplinary Resiliency webinars to Tone Eurythmy offerings, our members remain steadfast, creative and passionate in our mission to bring healing to all aspects of our being; a true representation of the forces of the heart that are needed to guide us into the future!
With gratitude and reverence for your work,
Tonya Stoddard
Board Representative for AAP

Newsletter from the Medical Section

Exciting New Publication!
"Anthroposophic Nursing Practice shows not only the possibility, but also the practical experience of nursing care, which aims to be both holistic and optimistic. The knowledge and perspectives gathered in this book have matured through the work of several generations of anthroposophically oriented nurses, all striving to refine a truly integrative nursing practice."

Look at this petition for screenless kindergartens!

Dear All,
Along with the good news that today we have joined the 64th thousand supporters of the Petition for Screenless Kindergartens and Primary Schools, a heartfelt request goes out to you, to share the following facebook- post together with one of the attached fotos:
Children are not computers - they need analogue kindergartens and primary schools for their development! Help to keep this choice and sign our petition at https://eliant.eu/en/home/
Kinder sind keine Computer – sie brauchen für ihre Entwicklung analoge Kindergärten und Grundschulen! Helft mit, diese Wahlmöglichkeit zu erhalten und unterschreibt unsere Petition auf www.eliant.eu
Since this year almost all lecture events had to be cancelled, which have been the main source of signatures so far, we - the helping students and I - now want to focus entirely on social media networks. If we manage to achieve exponential growth in this way by the end of the year, the target of 100,000 could still be reached.
With many thanks for your help
and best regards

Spirit-Remembering in Troubled Times
January 14, 2021 at 6pm MST

Join us in exploring the concept of Spirit-Remembering - a practice in developing our capacity for encountering spirit in every moment. Many threats of our modern world (electro-magnetics, pollution, climate changes, disease and pharmaceuticals, etc) can challenge our memory of these precious experiences and reduce our ability to connect. The StarHouse and the Association for Anthroposophic Psychology are collaborating in offering this webinar to explore what spirit-remembering means, and to share a Spirit-Remembering Assessment to help evoke memories of your personal connection with Spirit, and establish these important landmarks for yourself as we are collectively navigating challenging times.

Collaborative Case Studies in Anthroposophic Medicine

The first four webinars are open to doctors, nurses and all Anthroposophic therapists. Each session will include several short teaching presentations, plus time for break-out discussion groups, arranged for either interdisciplinary discussions (December and March) or profession/modality-specific discussions (January and February). The fifth session in April is just for licensed prescribers (MD, DO, ND, NP, PA, Dentist, Pharmacist)

We look forward to collaboratively deepening our own knowledge, as well as fruitful sharing between the many different kinds of Anthroposophic practitioners that make up our medical community.

Enlivening our Therapeutic Teaching: An Introduction to the Teach the Teachers program for North America
Saturday, March 6, 2021
A three-session workshop, 11amEST-5pm EST/8am-2pm PST

Due to the ongoing restrictions on gathering and travel, the Teach the Teachers North American Course has been rescheduled to start in 2022.
But because these times call more and more for healing modalities that consider body, soul and spirit to come forward, we are not postponing the impulse to...

Develop the Teacher in You !

Join a new initiative that brings together professionals of anthroposophic healing modalities that are feeling called to teach their practice to new learners.
It is clear that to carry the impulse of anthroposophic therapies and medicine forward, more teachers will be required to fill the need for expansion in learning opportunities. 
We will meet on March 6, 2021 for a one day workshop to begin to explore 3 foldness through text study and artistic activity and how we might present this idea to new students learning about anthroposophical healing. Please join us in beginning to build our community and our first cohort of Teach the Teachers North American Course.
Please register here for the workshop!

Beyond the Molecular and Mechanical Model: Lung, Liver, Kidney and Heart
Special Guest Faculty: Dr. James A. Dyson

-What is the role of rhythmic processes in the body?
-How is our wake/sleep rhythm, or our in-breath/out-breath rhythm, related to the continuous work of re-absorption and excretion in the kidney?
-Can we think about a whole physiology of “exchange”?

-Why do we connect the heart with love, and warmth, and morality?
-Wouldn’t medicine be better if we acknowledged the links between body and mind?
-How can we see the patient as a whole person, not just a collection of parts? No one wants to be labeled or treated as a defective part.
