ACHENA Approved for 12 Hours - Available Online Only
It has become common practice today to consider homeopathic remedies in the context of remedy-groups. In Working with Botanical Families, Dr. Taylor brings his expertise in botany, zoology and classical homeopathy to help us understand and use remedies based on their possible family resemblances to better-known remedies. Through the formal taxonomic groups of the botanical families, this course teaches us how to use our known remedies to both learn "small" remedies and to adopt new remedies not yet introduced into our materia medica. Some of the plant-based analogic groups such as trees, vines, etc. are also discussed. Key issues examined during this 12-hour recorded course include:
- The historical development and current status of botanical classificationsystems
- Perspectives from our classical authors on working with family relationships
- Approaches introduced by contemporary homeopathic teachers for working with plant families
- The use of several different families — functionality features built into our homeopathic analysis software
- The comparative materia medica of some selected botanical families
- More than a dozen acute and chronic cases that illustrate the use of families-based approaches in arriving at the simillimum
Whether you learned your materia medica from a families perspective and just want to sharpen your perceptions by studying with a naturalist of Dr. Taylor's skill, or you are a beginner in understanding the basic outlines of studying remedies in families, Working with Botanical Families can show you how to connect and differentiate remedies using the family framework.

PRAISE FOR Will Taylor
I must say I am completely and totally impressed with the online classes you provide. I wish I had more time!
I especially appreciate “simple” classes that go in depth regarding one specific remedy, such as Helleborus, Aethusa, Rhus tox, etc. I would love more of these! Kim Elia and Dr. Taylor do such a fantastic job of presenting the whole picture of remedies. I would appreciate even one-hour classes on the more common remedies... I have studied these remedies but I consistently get a clearer picture after a session with Kim or Dr. Taylor.
Thank you for making these available!

Please tell Will Taylor that I thoroughly enjoyed his course and he is a fantastic teacher. He has such an easy going manner, very in depth knowledge, humor and clear teaching that it is pure pleasure to hear him.
I adore Will's presentation style, have had him several times as a teacher at the school I attended. I appreciate his sense of humour and movie quotes. I will listen to him anytime. If I could afford to take all his online classes, I would.
I am so delighted to have discovered Dr. Taylor as a teacher. He is among the best I have encountered. His depth of knowledge, understanding of disease, and humility make him a joy to learn with. He presents a high bar with his dedication to excellence, which inspires us to reach farther with our own professional development.
I wanted to thank you yet again for another wonderful course. You certainly are a talented educator with so much experience, I feel extremely grateful to have the opportunity of learning from you and also for the invention of webinars! Thanks to you and your WHN team, I am now addicted and find it really hard to resist each new series on offer.
I just wanted to thank you for your wonderfully enlightening and stimulating course on Rheumatic Diseases. I learned so much from the enormous detail you managed to cover each week. I'm sure it takes a tremendous amount of time and energy to research and compile each lecture - but nothing goes unnoticed Will, I'm sure everyone is most grateful to you.
I know I've said this to you before, but I'd really like to tell you again - you are an extremely inspiring educator with a depth of knowledge in so many areas, it's always such a treat to spend whatever time I get to share your insight. And all this with a wonderful sense of humour.
I love, love, love the Rheumatic Diseases course as well. (Want more of that.) -- Also looking forward to the Cardiovascular Course.

Thank you for a wonderful Webinar. This was my first webinar with you, and I really enjoyed it. This has opened up a whole new universe for me to learn homeopathy. Up until now I always avoided webinars. But yours was as good as a live seminar. I am so glad I signed up for it.
I look forward to attending more of your webinars in future.
