Students studying at any of the Faculty’s accredited teaching centres have the chance of winning a fantastic prize worth £1,000 – simply by entering Weleda’s blog writing competition.

The competition winner will receive a free student place at the 2018 Faculty of Homeopathy Congress in Liverpool, from 12th – 14th October. The Faculty of Homeopathy Congress is a biennial event that attracts an international audience and a line-up of first class of presenters.

You will be able to access the full programme of talks and seminars, which will be given by many leading homeopaths, including Dr Heiner Frei, Dr Jonathan Hardy and Dr Annette Sneevliet.

You’ll be staying at Liverpool’s four-star Crowne Plaza Hotel for three nights, including breakfast. You will also have free attendance to all the three main social events of the weekend, including a night out on Friday at the Revolucion de Cuba Bar and Saturday’s black tie Gala Dinner in the stunning Museum of Liverpool. A contribution towards student travel to Liverpool is included.

The prize also includes the chance to visit Weleda’s growing and manufacturing sites in Derbyshire, including overnight accommodation and student travel. Stepping inside the Demeter-certified organic herb gardens of one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of homeopathic medicines is a rare opportunity. You will be able to walk through the wild-flower meadow, chat to the gardening team and learn about biodynamic agriculture and tincture production. You’ll get an insight into the plant’s journey to Weleda’s Production Suite and learn about production methods and processes. Enjoy lunch with the team, learn about the Weleda range, and finally take home a great selection of organic skincare and bodycare products.

All you have to do is write a blog post of between 300 and 500 words on the subject of “Homeopathy – the natural career choice”, explaining why you have chosen to train in homeopathy and what benefits you believe it will bring you as a practitioner and to your patients. The winning entry will then be published on the Weleda and Faculty of Homeopathy websites.
