“Charley Cropley is a living embodiment of naturopathic medicine. If you are interested in expressing the absolute power of your Self and transmitting within the context of a patient/doctor relationship, there is no greater example. I first met Charley five years ago, and he has never ceased to amaze me, support me, and guide me with the most tender and loving hands in awakening to the absolute majesty of vis medicatrix naturae.”  – Node Smith – Association for Naturopathic ReVitalization

“My time with Dr. Cropley has changed me in ways I could not have expected. The biggest insight I gained through our work together is that I am my own healer. Only I can heal myself. The loving, honest and strong person within me has infinite power to create amazing change in my own life. Our time together helped spark a change in how I view myself and my body and has encouraged me to continue choosing self care over and over again. As a medical student in a rigorous program, my view of "physician, heal thyself" has been greatly expanded. I am thankful for Dr. Cropley's fierce and loving dedication to his work, his patients and his own well-being. He embodies the healing power of naturopathic medicine.”  - Savannah Bukant

“Living and working with Dr. Cropley for a week was a true joy. The time we spent together gave me a thorough understanding of his practice and lifestyle which are beautifully interwoven. He really walks the talk. I learned what it looks like to engage in the arts of living each and every day via many conversations about philosophy, eating and shopping together, seeing patients, participating in business meetings, and having fun! I would recommend this program to any ND student who wants to get back to the roots of naturopathic medicine with a fantastic teacher, mentor and friend that is Dr. Cropley.” - Melissa M. 

"I ended up taking this quarter off of clinic to *restore my VIS* and I will be finishing up my last 4 clinic shifts this summer. Every day I see more & more how the medicine I share with others is that which overflows from my own personal healing journey. Learning to properly care for oneself is absolutely the core of our medicine – – I can’t thank you enough for our time together and everything you have taught me!” - Rachel A.

Dr. Cropley brings 40 years of teaching and living his work. We look forward to working with you in this life-changing 8 week interactive online course.
