From real students of Resonance
"Last year, I completed a certificate program in Master Herbalism. I love herbs and wanted to help people understand and use herbs for their health. Unfortunately in Nevada, I found out, it is hard to do anything even alternative in regards to health. I did my research and found that you need to be a medical doctor, a doctor of oriental medicine, or a homeopath to do anything even remotely 'medical' in Nevada. I asked the Nevada Homeopathy Board for clarification on some of their restrictions and realized that the best way to do what I wanted to do was to choose a program and get licensed. Medical school was not possible, OM didn’t interest me, and so I explored homeopathy. I did some research online and read about it, and thought it would interest me 'enough' to reach my goals. Your school was in Nevada, and I liked what your website had to say about your philosophy and program structure. I decided to 'give it a year and decide later.' What I didn’t know when I applied was that Resonance School of Homeopathy would change my life.
When I first logged in and saw the expectations for Month 1, I was intimidated. I mean, I have a Masters in Education, so I know studying, but this was at a level I knew would challenge me. I did all of the lessons in order, and I took notes even though I didn’t know half of what you were talking about, and in the end I felt like I had studied Homeopathy for a year. Every month has continued in a similar way, and here at the cusp of my 6th month, I feel like this is what I was supposed to be doing my whole life. I feel like my head has been taken apart and put back together in a brand new way. I feel like everything that I have ever done in my life (educationally, spiritually, personally) has led to this point. I feel like I am finally on track with my destiny. I don’t think I would feel this way if I had chosen another school.
I love so many things about your school and program. First, I love how you make the program challenging. I read a portion of 'The Eye of the I' to a friend of mine, and she were amazed at the level of information it contained. I am glad that you don’t 'dumb down' your program, but inspire us to move forward scholastically and spiritually with each lesson. Second, I feel so fortunate to have live cases. Even with online learning, I am able to learn so much about case-taking – and so much about myself! I was emotional through some of the tougher cases, and was able to explore why and how I can keep my emotions in check to be present for the client. I wonder how students from other schools handle it when they start their homeopathic practice, and have a client cry. If they have never had a real live breathing emotional client, how do they stay present and really see the case for what it is? And lastly, I am grateful for your excellent instruction. You are the perfect blend between tough and compassionate, and you give your students a chance to explore the material and learn instead of spoon-feeding us the answers. You help us develop our own homeopathic art.
In just a few months, it will be the end of my first year, and the end of my 'give it a year and decide later' period. I will be staying, probably for many years. We are moving to Hawaii in 2009 and I will be continuing my studies at Resonance School and doing everything I can to learn more about homeopathy. It is so beyond getting licensed and credentialed at this point. Homeopathy is my true spiritual calling, and I don’t think I would have been able to explore this, to the depth that I have been able to, without your school, your guidance, and your encouragement."

"I've been a student of Robert Field for almost two years now, and during this time my initial deep feeling that here is the best place for me to study homeopathy is repeatedly confirmed. I knew what I wanted before even starting the search. Having gone through years of spiritual training that focussed constantly on remaining practical, impartial and at the same time loving and respectful, I needed a teacher that went beyond lists of symptoms and remedies to encompass the totality of each human being. This Robert does par excellence. As soon as I opened the website, I knew this is the approach to homeopathy that most resonates with my own experience.
Any method or therapy must approach the person in question as a whole. Simply by recognizing that each person is a unique case is a strong spiritual statement that already validates that person's sense of self. Robert teaches this consistently and adamantly. Good homeopathy is not knowing many stock symptom/remedy relations and making a case fit into that body of knowledge. Robert teaches his students to be sensitive to the particular expression of each person, on all levels, and to be open to finding exactly that remedy that resonates with that expression. This is giving the client permission to be fully his/herself. And is in itself deeply healing. As Robert teaches by providing us with many many videoed cases, we students are constantly made to witness the human condition in its myriad of expressions. We must keep our hearts activated to accommodate this, and it leaves little room for theorizing or intellectualizing. This hands-on practical experience is invaluable. We are practicing homeopaths as of day one. It leads to a very solid knowledge of the remedies, as we see them in action both in their negative expression as the dis-ease, and in their positive expression when we observe the clients' healing responses in the follow-ups.
In order for the student/homeopath to register the clues the person is giving during case taking, and to be open to the totality of the case, Robert encourages humility and constant reassessing of one's prejudices and personal stance. This makes studying with Robert a spiritual growth. It keeps us aware that we are constantly learning no matter what level we have reached. That the amazing world of homeopathy is a realm with much depth and subtlety offered to us by the natural world and by those gifted people who developed it. To my knowledge, this is best place where we as students can work towards such subtle understanding."
"I want to thank you so much for this course, even though I've only just started. I knew as soon as I opened your website that your teaching is just right for me....I'd been looking for a while for online courses and they all felt so cold. In fact, I feel I've been looking for this even longer than I realized. I need to complement the therapy work that I do with homeopathy, and you teach it in a way that, as you say, resonates with the energy of how I work and live. There really are no accidents!
Each question that I've had so far has been answered later when I review the video and listen openly. I'm sure I'll have plenty soon when I receive the books to read and can start to get a feeling for the individual remedies! Actually, right now I feel that the essence of homeopathy itself is working homeopathically on me, and a lot has changed in the last few weeks. For that already I'm very grateful!"
"I love the program, though it is sometimes a bit overwhelming. There is so much information to absorb. Plus you have to be an Ambassador of Homeopathy and teach people what it's really about. But I love it! I will definitely be continuing in my studies beyond the first year. I feel like I absolutely chose the right school - I am learning so much. I'm going to try to come up for an in-person class this summer too. Blessings to you for such a wonderful school!"

"I’m blown away with your dedication to homeopathy by releasing this fabulous video. I can’t express how blessed and privileged I feel to be one of your 'in house' class students."
"Thanks for this info, I am finding that it is quite indispensable in learning effective case-taking. However, it is through the amazing constructs that your school takes, where live cases are the basis for learning, that brings this information to life for me. The studying of text is great for the purpose of having the information 'in' the brain somewhere, but I find that as a live person describes their dis-ease and the ways in which they suffer, the information that is learned through written word transforms into a sense of knowing and feeling that cannot be duplicated in any other way. For me, it is through real people and their story of how they suffer that real knowledge graces my studies."
"I have completed the pathology course. I want you to know how much I appreciate your courses! It seems as if no one else (in the homeopathy world) is offering anything like this, yet we all need these specs before we can move forward for the CHC exam. I believe most people end up taking these courses at community colleges, which require more time and can cost 4 to 5 times more than your courses. That said, you have cornered the market on this, and offer a great opportunity for homeopathy students! In fact, the CHC should have you on a referral list for students inquiring about these classes. At present, they only loosely mention Dr. Taylor's class an option, but his course is 50 weeks long. As far as I can tell, you are the only one offering it this way."

"I am a brand new student at Resonance School of Homeopathy. It has been a unique experience attending classes there. The style of teaching is 'hands-on,' unlike other traditional schools where you get the "book knowledge" first and then 2-3+ years later start your residency or practical training. Robert gives all of his students the opportunity to participate and ask questions. You don't feel excluded because he will include you! There is also a lot of encouragement from other students. I look forward to becoming a great homeopath under the tutelage of Robert Field at Resonance!"

"I absolutely love the class. I love that we learn by seeing real people and that the spiritual side of homeopathy is consciously worked with in class. We are spiritual beings first and I think that many other schools ignore that. Thank you for creating the Resonance School of Homeopathy...I love it!"
