Creating Waves of Awareness
The Joshi’s took time to place great emphasis on the fact that the sensation method is simply an extension of classical homeopathy. Their explanation was that in the same way that Kent brought the mental symptoms to us and Vithoulkas developed it further, the sensation method takes us another step further in that it brings to us the delusions and sensations. Their take on case taking is about understanding the whole state; not just from the adding together of general symptoms, physical and mentals, but understanding they will all be interlinked.
The experience of the sensation method practitioners is that case taking has had to incorporate advanced perception techniques and is not just a gathering of discreet mental and physical symptoms but one of understanding the entire behaviour pattern. That is, understanding that each rubric is connected to the whole has resulted in the need to develop the case-taking process to perceive what is the single altered common pattern of reality or behaviour. Over the 20 years since Rajan Sankaran first began to develop this concept in case taking it has been honed into a fine art by the experiences of a dedicated team of which the Joshis have been a big part. Thus we truly all benefited from their sharing of those years of intensive work.
