Courses / Developmental Concept: Finding the Centre
What is Net of Knowledge?


Offering a new perspective on development, this course shares a concept which combines both Eastern and Western knowledge and understanding. It is presented half through video and half through follow-along reading materials, in a comprehensive learning experience that offers practical approaches to support healthy baby development, parents, and families.

In the first year of life, an important development window occurs, as key sensory-motor milestones and our emerging meridian blueprint start to lay the foundations for future development.

The Developmental Concept aims to bring the Western knowledge of neuroscience, developmental physiology and psychology into alignment with the knowledge and experience of Eastern Medicine and meridian theory.

When viewed together as a holistic concept, we can also gain insights into themes which link our early development to topics and presentations in our later school years or adult life. This course starts at the beginning phase of life in the world, learning what it means to ‘find our centre’ and our sense of boundaries and how to support this.

You may be a practitioner working with babies and children, or have an interest in the topic of development. The course comprises practical and theoretical information along with comprehensive notes.

It is also accessible for interested parents and care-givers, with practical support such as handling methods and tips for baby’s everyday life.

The Developmental Concept is the result of many years of research and clinical experience by Karin Kalbantner-Wernicke and Dr Thomas Wernicke.
