Description of the MCLT Profession:  Requirements

The metal color light therapy training is a course of further education for already qualified Anthroposophic therapists who are presently working in some form of therapeutic discipline such as art, music, eurythmy, medical and remedial education. These Anthroposophic professions have developed a relationship to the metals through working with color, musical scales, planetary forces and/or medicine. The action of the metals as worked with in MCLT is relayed to trainees by building on their own initial experiences.

The Training - A new  Cohort Beginning Summer 2023

MCLT is currently in a phase of training practitioners to apply this therapy in a variety of settings. The aim of this training, as further education, is for trainees to become familiar with the effects of metal color light therapy. In the course of the training, the students’ senses develop an awareness for particular qualities of light, warmth, substance and dynamics. Their sense perceptions become enlivened through bodily-soul-spiritual experiences. This gives the trainees viewpoints on how to use metal color light in therapy with patients/clients who are troubled by, to name a few, psychological challenges, trauma, hardening processes, anxiety, hyperactivity, fear and physical pain. An informed use of the therapy can help patients experience enlivened life forces, rebuild inner trust and gain solutions for their individual destiny questions. It is the intent of the course to develop in the trainees an openness for these human questions of life and to find ways to work beneficially with these thoughts as a practicing therapist.

 It is in relation to their respective previous training that students gain knowledge, experience and insight into the effects of the metal forces transformed into colored glass. Their individual trainings have a mutually inspiring, opening and awakening effect upon one another. Questioning/research and motivating each other as an approach to life and work are stimulated and practiced.

 -  An interview is required.

 -  A diploma or certificate of completion of professional training

-  A curriculum vitae 

 -  A concise description of one’s motivation for deciding to join the training
