"The beautiful thing about A Course in Self-Healing is that it’s taking topics like consciousness, awareness, presence, trauma, and the felt sense of the body, and applies them to naturopathic determinants of health, which is extremely unique. Charley has created a framework for us to approach this very nuanced topic of healing the self, and he does it in a way that allows us to subjectively and experientially feel what healing means."
A Course in Self-Healing
A Course In Self-Healing teaches us how to heal clinically diagnosed illness by “healing” our behavior: the ways we eat, move, think, and relate.
We begin this self-healing process by asking ourselves deeply and sincerely “What is the healing I most desire, and what is the suffering I most fear physically, mentally and socially?"
The foundation of Naturopathic Medicine is “Vis Medicatrix Naturae”, that we are innately endowed with the power to self-heal. In this session we learn how to use a conscious wisdom and a love far greater than our own. A wisdom and love already fully operative in us and as us; yearning to heal us by guiding us to heal ourselves.
This session offers a clear explanation of the root causes of illness and how to heal those causes. It describes the physiologic and metabolic mechanisms by which our behavior creates illness. We learn how illness progresses from the acute stage to the chronic stage if the behavioral causes are ignored and medicines are used to suppress the symptoms. Finally we learn how illness, correctly understood awakens in us a genuine passion to change our self-harming behaviors.
This session makes clear the overwhelming and incomparable power that our behavior has to both cause and heal disease. We will learn to appreciate what skillful eating, movement, thinking and relating actually looks like. We will evaluate our own skillfulness in each behavior and clarify what skills will most benefit our specific health concerns.
Arguably, there is no therapy or medicine as beneficial to our health as ceasing the behaviors that injure our metabolism and doing the behaviors that create a healthy metabolism.
Most of us employ an unconscious strategy of attempting to improve our behavior by being coercive and critical towards ourselves. Learning to first heal this unconscious strategy, enables us to make the daily behavioral changes essential for healing our illness.
This session teaches us how to listen compassionately to the desires and fears of both of our conflicting sides. By the power of self-compassion and truthful speech we are able to heal our conflicting desires and behaviors and thereby heal our illness.
Having learned that to heal our illness we must learn how to govern our behavior, this session teaches us that we are innately endowed with 3 self-healing powers. These are kindness, truthful speech, and community. We learn to use these medicines to heal such real behavioral problems such as food cravings, chronic anxiety, self-criticism and social anxiety.
Healing disease requires we change obvious habits such as smoking, overeating, avoiding exercise. Perhaps the more difficult challenges are facing our often unconscious habits such as self-criticism, compulsive rushing, and negative self-talk.
This discourse provides a clear understanding of the universal law that governs the formation of habits; and how we can use this law to free ourselves from the compulsion to engage in the behaviors that unfailingly result in disease.
Charley Cropley is a living embodiment of naturopathic medicine. If you are interested in expressing the absolute power of your Self and transmitting within the context of a patient/doctor relationship, there is no greater example. I first met Charley five years ago, and he has never ceased to amaze me, support me, and guide me with the most tender and loving hands in awakening to the absolute majesty of vis medicatrix naturae.
