The Nature of Pain and its Therapeutic Challenge
An integrative approach

with Dr Matthias Girke

Wednesday February 13-Sunday February 17 2019
Victoria University Kelburn Campus
Wellington New Zealand
Dr Matthias Girke returns to the Southern Hemisphere in February 2019 to lead our next Oceania Medical Section conference. The conference will have a new theme based format and be shorter than the traditional IPMT week. We welcome those with a background in anthroposophic medicine and therapy as well as those interested in what the anthroposophic approach has to offer their medical and therapeutic work. The evening lectures will be open to the public as in previous years.
The conference will be held at Victoria University Wellington with accommodation and meals at the Te Puni Village hostel next door to our classrooms. Victoria University’s Kelburn campus is a short walk from central Wellington and easily accessible from the airport and bus/train station. The flyer is in process and will be posted shortly with the registration form.
We are looking forward to seeing you in February.
