Combining cutting edge alternative healthcare and new educational techniques in a holistic health center setting.
Begabati Lennihan, CCH practices homeopathy as a Certified Classical Homeopath and provides holistic health and wellness education as a Registered Nurse. After graduating from Harvard in 1974 at the top of her class, she embarked on an unusual career path. Instead of becoming a doctor like her father, she became an expert in natural healing by running health food stores in Boston and Cambridge.
Begabati first began working with homeopathic remedies in 1981 and began studying homeopathy professionally in 1995 with Dr. Luc De Schepper. She co-founded the Renaissance Institute of Classical Homeopathy with Dr. Luc in 1996, subsequently becoming Director of Teleosis School of Homeopathy (2002-2010). She lectures at Mass. College of Pharmacy and Lesley University’s holistic studies program.
In 2010 Begabati changed her focus to empowering people to use homeopathy for home health care via her GreenHealingTV channel on YouTube and her books:
Your Natural Medicine Cabinet
A Healer In Every Home: Dog and Cat edition
Cough Cures (written with leading pulmonologist Dr. Gustavo Ferrer)
Begabati’s interest in natural healing was inspired by her parents: her father a vascular surgeon who helped develop the Doppler ultrasound and her mother a biochemist who worked for Dr. Papanicolau, the originator of the Pap smear. Nature lovers and early conservationists, they gave Begabati her childhood wildflower garden. Many years later, in her health food store, Begabati was delighted to find that her childhood friends – the native plants of the New England wildflowers – are powerful herbal medicines and homeopathic remedies.
Begabati has practiced heart-center meditation for more than 40 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 meditation at Harvard’s Center for Wellness; in keeping with his mind-body approach to fitness, she has completed 50 marathons, ultramarathons and triathlons. Based on her practice in heart-centered meditation, she is able to establish a deeply supportive and nurturing relationship with her clients.
