In May this year we were fortunate to have Dr Lakshmi give 2 talks, beginning with Anthroposophic Medicine and its Contribution to Today’s Child Health and Development. This time Dr Lakshmi will address the realm of Understanding Sleep from an Anthroposophic perspective and work with some common issues around sleep. This is a topic not often covered so take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about the realm of sleep unique to this perspective, and feel more able to support a healthy sleep life, and the process of going into and coming from this realm, for your children and yourselves.
Please note that during her October Sydney visit Dr Lakshmi and  a colleague will also present a workshop related to The Human Organs which will take place at Castlecrag MMG Hall on Sat Oct 10th 9am - 4pm and Sunday Oct 11th, 10am - 2.30pm. Further details will be sent out separately soon, and bookings will be essential. There will be a cost to participants for this workshop, which is open to teachers and other practitioners as well as parents.

Dr. Lakshmi Prasanna is a paediatrician (neonatologist) with 25 years’ experience. Before starting her private practice, she was the Head of the Department in Child Development Unit at Apollo hospitals, Chennai.
