Iris Hagen Ratowsky, CCH, is the Director and Head Teacher of Berkeley Institute of Homeopathy. She did her undergraduate and graduate work at U.C.Berkeley, and studied homeopathy independently for 6 years before beginning a formal training program in homeopathy at Pacific Academy of Homeopathic Medicine, from which she graduated in 1994.
She has practiced formally since that year, and was certified by both the North American Society of Homeopaths and the Council for Homeopathic Certification. She was the Registrar at NASH for many years, where she was responsible for certifying applicants, helping to set the agenda for NASH.
As a board member, she participated in the ongoing work with the Council for Homeopathic Education to work with the homeopathic community to set educational standards for the training of homeopaths.
She also served on the board of the Council for Homeopathic Certification where she continued her work in education and certification. She has taught homeopathy in the U.S. and Japan. She was one of the two core teachers at the Pacific Academy of Homeopathy from 1997 to 2008.
She started Berkeley Institute of Homeopathy's training program in which she unites her two keen and passionate interests — the education of homeopaths and her work in helping others develop and find their gifts as whole human beings. This has value both for their own healing and development, and for the healing of the larger community.
