This is not just it. The Other Song Academy has staunch support from The World Institute for Sensation Homoeopathy (WISH). Founded in Munich in 2010 by Dr.Rajan Sankaran and a group of dedicated world homoeopaths, all practitioners and teachers of the Sensation Method of Homoeopathy, all eager for better results through understanding patients in depth. The core group of WISH comprises homoeopaths from India, Germany, Austria, the United Kingdom, Spain, France, Belgium, Holland, Japan, Canada and USA, many of whom, having been associated with Sensation Homoeopathy since its inception, are highly skilled in this method. Many of the WISH members are also internationally renowned teachers of Homoeopathy. Pooling resources and data, systematising teaching, organising seminars, exchanging information and promoting interaction amongst its members all fall within the purview of WISH. Thus, this group has tremendous potential in contributing to the progress of Homoeopathy and has lent its whole-hearted support to the other song: International Academy for Advanced Homoeopathy. WISH teachers are also faculty members at the academy at The Other Song, and panel members at clinical discussions.
Headed by Dr. Rajan Sankaran and supported by his colleagues and homoeopaths and medical practitioners around the globe, The Other Song International Academy of Advanced Homoeopathy is a pioneering non-profit making organization that offers the best possible homoeopathic treatment to patients, and teaches the latest advances in the field of Homoeopathy to doctors. A converging point of some of the best minds in the field of Homoeopathy who, being at the helm, are able to personally make invaluable contributions towards the well-being of patients and learning for doctors. At The Other Song, good health and well-being are central to an academic culture dedicated to advanced clinical research, patient care, extensive training and in-depth education.The Other Song is also a platform for every homoeopath to refer difficult and challenging cases, opined upon by senior practitioners. Thorough follow-ups are carried out, and expert opinion from modern medicine physicians sought when required. Additional healing techniques like yoga and meditation that complement homoeopathic treatment are incorporated into the patient regimen. The ambience of the institute is created so as to welcome and reassure patients and inspire students. With the help of those who have listened to the other song within their hearts and healed, the organization is growing from strength to strength…
Homoeopathic Research and Charities started conducting various training courses for modern practitioners and awareness seminars for the lay public at regular intervals. These seminars and were very well received. Usually these seminars were conducted in rented premises such as hotels etc. due to the lack of proper infrastructure and economical reasons these rented premises are not the ideal location for the seminars and course organized These places would not provide the right ambience for intensive sessions conducted during residential courses. Yet the demand for these training programs began to increase to such a level that it became imperative to set up a full-fledged centre where courses can be held for a longer period and more often, in a systematic manner. A centre where clinical knowledge is imparted to the amateur graduate to enhance their clinical skills, and ongoing educational sessions and discussions to update senior practitioners about the recent developments and advances by experts and researchers. Also, graduate training in homeopathy by using modern techniques was the need of the hours, in fact, when a residential clinical course was offered; more than 400 applications were received for the 50 seats available. That made it more apparent that there was an unfulfilled demand for postgraduate studies in homeopathy. Hence the dream to have a centre, where it would be possible to stimulate change and research in homoeopathy for practitioners worldwide. The centre would establish a global forum for the exchange for clinical experiences between students and leading practitioners. It would encourage the students to adapt to changing approaches to case management and disseminate the same among peers. The dream was to have a school designed along the traditional “Gurukul” system of teaching: a centre with an informal, simple and natural student-teacher environment.

Testimony of participant from a course organized for International students: “The seminar in Lonavala had a great influence on the development of homoeopathy in Russia. There are weekly practical seminars in ‘Similia’ for homoeopaths from Moscow. The doctors study how to prescribe remedies, based on Rajan’s method, and the results are very good. It would be desirable to return to Lonavala and to receive a new experience of a dialogue with Rajan, Jayesh and other doctors from the Bombay school.” – Lubov Lurie, MD, Director of the Centre of Classical Homoeopathy “Similia”.
Apart from professional colleagues, the Sensation Method has also been supported by patients keen to learn about and contribute to a system that has helped them experience relief. The dynamism of one such patient, Mr. Hitesh Mehta and his wife, Mrs. Daksha Mehta has provided the impetus for setting up the Foundation for Vital Healing. The foundation is the main support in establishing a center for healing, training and research, viz. the other song: International Academy of Advanced Homoeopathy.
Regular workshops for international students were organized in Goa, the travelers paradise. The Goa workshops were especially popular among Russian homoeopaths, and each time a large number of them have enthusiastically participated.
The team followed the trail blazed by the brilliant and innovative thinker, Dr. Rajan Sankaran and started the popularly referred to as the ‘Bombay School of Homoeopathy’. This school has a well- deserved international following thanks to its pioneering work, which has extended the frontiers of traditional homoeopathy in a totally revolutionary manner. Testimony from a participant of clinical training course organized by the School of Classical Homoeopathy “This year as a part of the Clinical training six of our students have chosen an elective course of six weeks in India held by the teachers from the Bombay School, organized by the Homoeopathic Research and Charities foundations. We hope that this kind of collaboration will continue and become a tradition between our schools. Being residential, far away from our busy clinics and held in a quite and peaceful atmosphere, these courses enable us to dive in to the depth of the studies in such an intensive way, that it gives us an opportunity to grasp and internalize and enormous amount of knowledge and experience.” – Oded Magan, The college of Management , Jerusalem, Israel
