Begabati Lennihan is the Director of the Teleosis School of Homeopathy.
She is a 1974 Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Harvard who has spent 30 years in different aspects of holistic health care. For 16 years she owned a health food store, where she first began working with homeopathic remedies in 1981.
She began studying homeopathy professionally in 1995 with Dr. Luc De Schepper, and with him co-founded the Renaissance Institute of Classical Homeopathy. She currently has a practice in classical homeopathy for women and children in Cambridge, MA.
Begabati has edited Dr. Luc's guide for laypeople, The People's Repertory, and his textbook for professionals, Hahnemann Revisited, as well as Yasgur's Homeopathic Dictionary, a reference book used by homeopaths around the world. She lectures on homeopathy at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy, and co authored the chapter on homeopathy in the American Pharmacological Association's Handbook of Non-Prescription Drugs.
She has also lectured on homeopathy at Northeastern University's School of Pharmacy and MGH Institute's training program for nurse practitioners. Begabati shares Dr. Kreisberg's vision for enhancing homeopathic education, having studied learning styles (perceptual processing patterns) with Dr. Dawna Markova, a protegé of Dr. Milton Erickson, and Brain Gym (educational kinesiology) with Dr. Carla Hannaford.
Begabati has practiced heart-center meditation for 30 years under the guidance of spiritual teacher Sri Chinmoy, who gave her the spiritual name Begabati. (Literally it means a fast-flowing river and symbolically it refers to the individual soul plunging headlong to merge into the ocean of infinite consciousness.)
In keeping with Sri Chinmoy's philosophy of community service, she teaches free classes in heart-centered meditation at Harvard University's Center for Wellness; in keeping with his mind-body approach to fitness, she has completed 50 marathons, ultramarathons and triathlons.
Her writing appears in journals including Simillimum and Homeopathy Today. Her articles on enhancing learning and on the role of spirituality in homeopathy are available on her websites, www.eastwesthealth.info and www.teleosisschool.org.
