Ellen Madono's education
My homeopathy education
My Ph.D. dissertation titled "Apprenticeship-"Learned it by myself" became my model for my own life-long education. First, I learned homeopathy in Pittsburgh by sponsoring a clinic. Then, moved to Tokyo, so most of my homeopathy education was Internet-based. Clinical practice and teaching continue to educate me. In my timeline you can see that I value, learning through participation, cross-cultural learning, and mind-body paradigms.
