stepping stones

Towards Unexplored

The stepping stones provide the reader with an idea of how the life events of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann led to the discovery of Homeopathy. Knowledge of various languages learned at a young age became a key step. Translated books became the source for the inquiring scientific mind. Values imbibed through Parenting guided the inner life to be on the path to find cure for Ailing Humanity. The stepping stones walk us through each step.

The stepping stones led Dr. Samuel Hahnemann from translating books of various languages to the discovery of Homeopathy.

“Though my father was not a professed artist, yet he was occupied as a painter in the Porcelain Manufactory in Meissen, and was the author of a little book on Painting in Water Colours. He had the soundest and most correct ideas upon every subject deserving consideration, and his opinions were strongly impressed on my mind.

‘To act, and to be without pretensions,’ was his fundamental maxim, enforced even more by example than by precept.

Various Fields


We may form some idea of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann’s immense industry when we consider that he proved about 90 different medicines, that he wrote upwards of 70 original works on chemistry and medicine, some of which were in several thick volumes, and translated about 28 works from English, French, Italian and Latin, on chemistry, medicine, agriculture and general literature, many of which were in more than one volume. The stepping stones takes us through each one of them.
