Welcome again to the Newsletter.
I hope you all enjoyed my sharing and finding out about Bumi Sehat and Robin Lim's not-for-profit organisation in the last newsletter. http://robinlimsupport.org/
As promised in this newsletter I will write a little on the Aurum Project Bali Conference that was held earlier this year. There is so much to choose from so I will pick one of the most inspiring talks to share with you.
The Solomon Islands and the
I found Jane Lindsay’s (Qld Homoeopath) account of the situation in the Solomon Islands inspiring. In the Solomon’s the remedies are distributed in water, hence the term Water Medicine.
The Solomon Islands are a small series of volcanic islands in the South Pacific Ocean. East of New Guinea and North/East of Cairns, Queensland. I would think that it would be a pretty nice place to have a snorkelling holiday. Here are some of the highlights of the talk:
- Homoeopathy arrived approximately 100 years ago in the Solomons'.
- It was christian preachers who took homoeoapthy to the Solomon Islands.
- There was minimal training for the original practitioners/preachers.
- Less than a few months.
- Training was mostly for minor ailments and first aid situations.
- Minimal remedies,
- 35 originally.
- Another 15 remedies were introduced in the 1970s & 80s Margaret Bartlett.
- Total of 51 remedies.
- An estimated 40-80,000 people are now being treated annually.
- 150 dispensers within the country.
- Of the 51 remedies 26 are incorporated within the cough section of their own repertory. Jane considered this to rival any western researched repertory.
Joy is the main dispenser in Honiara (capitol of the Solomon Islands). Joy has been dispensing water remedies for 25 years, seeing on occasion up to 70 people a day.
And the Icing on the Cake
- Community health workers training in the country iincorporates homoeopathy.
- There are plans for homoeopathy to be included in midwifery training to aid reduction of the infant mortality in the villages.
It reminds me of what can be done with dedication and adaptability.
The Nyoongar Season
Kambarang - October - November
Traditionally Noongar people visit a river or pool, they throw a handful of sand or a small rock into the water. This is to enable the Waugal (water spirit) to be able to know they are there and to recognise them.
The Waugal knows that no harm is intended by this custom. It is then safe for the children to swim in the river and pools.
The Waugal is a snake or rainbow serpent recognised by Noongar as the giver of life. It maintains all fresh water sources. It was the Waugal that made the Noongar people custodians of the land.
The condition of the rivers and waterways is seen as directly relating to the well -being of the Waugal.
The next season becomes
Birak - First Summer (season of the young)
December - January
We look forward to conversing with you again.
Until then enjoy the season.
