A New Training Opportunity:
Jupiter & Mars & Liver & Gall Bladder

October 14, 15, 16, 2022 * On-Line Conference Jointly Hosted By The Rhythmical Massage Therapy Association of North America & The North American Anthroposophic Nurses Association (NAANA)
James Dyson, MD • Alan Thewless • Karen Derreumaux


Training Information

Jupiter, layers of ever-moving cyclonic storms. Mars, a dry red planet with massive dust storms. How do the spiritual forces that shape these planets collaborate and manifest in the life and soul processes of the human liver and gall bladder? How does the dynamic interaction of these organs work with and contrast to the tension regulating of the kidney system? In this on-line conference presenters Dr. James Dyson, Alan Thewless and Karen Derreumaux will weave together astronomy of the planets Jupiter and Mars, their classical heritage and spiritual science, with aspects of embryology, anatomy and physiology of the liver and gall bladder, and artistic representations in eurythmy and fairy tale. Anthroposophic medical treatment and considerations for Rhythmical Massage Therapy and Anthroposophic Nursing will be discussed. It is recommended to prepare for this conference by reading the Grimm’s fairy tales, The Goose Girl & Iron Hans. The fairy tales will not be read in this conference.
