Dr. Robin Murphy, great author, academician and international homoeopath  passed away today and a great loss for the homoeopathic fraternity

Dr. Robin Murphy was born on August 15, 1950 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He had carried out his undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. There he discovered their homeopathic collection and became curious and interested with the system it described.

In 1976 he entered the National College of Naturopathic Medicine (NCNM), on a Hahnemann Scholarship. While at the school he studied with Dr. Ravi Sahni and Dr. John Bastyr. He directed the homeopathy program at NCNM from 1980-1984. He also taught at Bastyr University.

Dr. Murphy was one of the earliest seminar teachers and was responsible for introducing many people to homeopathy. He takes a practical approach to homeopathic education, bringing clarity to the interrelation between philosophy, Materia medica, and repertory work.

Dr. Robin Murphy, ND is a naturopathic physician who has been teaching and practicing Homeopathy, Oriental Medicine, Tai Chi and Qigong (Chi Kung) for over 30 years. He is an internationally recognized author and researcher on Homeopathy and Medical Qigong.

Many years ago, Dr. Murphy had learned a rare Buddhist Qigong system from the grandmaster Liu Siong. Liu Siong learned it from the Buddhist monks of the Shaolin monastery in China.
