Peter Chappell

I started life as a research and development engineer working in the aerospace industry (rocket engineering!) and then transferred to the business computing industry. I had three USA patents granted in my name and others by the age of 25. I carried on innovation when I became a homeopath, for example I produced the first homeopathic computer software that worked in real time in the consulting room.

I ran a homeopathic practice in London from the 1970s to the 1990s, treating people from all over the world. I also directed three clinics of alternative medicine in London at that time. I helped organise the teaching and practice of modern classical homoeopathy internationally, including setting up the Society of Homeopaths in the UK. During the 1990s, I organised training programmes with teams of homoeopaths and ran master classes and teaching clinics in many diverse countries and cultures, for example, Beirut in Lebanon, Cairo in Egypt, Honduras, Sarajevo in Bosnia, Novi Sad and Belgrade in Yugoslavia, Brno and Prague in the Czech Republic, Bucharest in Romania (including an ongoing clinical program offering treatment for free in twelve orphanages housing thousands of children), Sofia in Bulgaria, Bratislava in Slovakia, Budapest in Hungary, Malta, Alchopa, Nicaragua, Addis Ababa in Ethiopia, Zagreb and Split in Croatia, Malta, etc. By this method I set up professions of homoeopathy in countries where often it didn’t exist. Many thousands of homoeopaths have been trained and the training continues to this day.

My book Emotional Healing with Homoeopathy is based upon my experiences in many countries, and many people have become homoeopaths after reading it. It has been translated into many languages and has been in print now for 25 years.

In 2000 I discovered that my burning, overwhelming, heart-felt passion was to do something about HIV and AIDS in Africa. No AIDS drugs were reaching Africa at this point and millions were dying of AIDS. This became my sole purpose at this time and I set about achieving it. I quit my UK practice, borrowed money off my property and went to work in Ethiopia in October 2001. Then began a whole new chapter of my life, leading to the development of Source Medicine.

Leilani van Koten

The core theme of my life has been the exploration of health and inner growth, both professionally and personally, in the form of a journey through illness, seeking well-being. Along the way I qualified and worked as a medical doctor and a psychotherapist, and have learned Imagework, Non-Violent Communication, Reiki, EFT, Reconnective Healing and the Art of Allowing as well as learning much through parenting my two children. I live with my husband, Hamid, and our children at Bowden House, a community in Devon, England.

While always having a pervading sense of the sacredness of life, I have moved conceptually from a focus on illness and healing, through health and well-being to conscious evolution. As my desire to work consciously with the theme of global wakening crystalised into a clear, specific intention, I met Peter Chappell, originator of the Source Resonances, when he moved to Bowden House in 2014. I started working with him on research and organisational development and then stepped into the Source Work, which is our method of resonance production, and am now also managing Source Medicine.

Background, by Peter

Meeting with Leilani became an extraordinarily important event. Up to this point I was working semi-blind with the Source and the Resonances, and was without any quality contact and deeper understanding of this Source. It rapidly became apparent that Leilani was fully equipped for the job of Source Work and that the two of us together were a pre-existing sacred partnership. The previous methods I had used in working with Source in creating the Resonances were effective but there was little ability to refine and develop them. With Leilani, a direct conscious connection to Source was made and the method of requesting the resonances was developed and refined significantly.

One of Leilani‘s particular organising skills is to dissect, understand and consciously reconstruct what was previously a mostly an unconscious process. By chunking it down before rebuilding, issues which previously had seemed impenetrable became understood and by these methods great progress has been made.

Previously there was insufficient integration of Source Work in the activities of PC technology (as it was called then) on a practical level. Now it has been integrated in what we might call a sacred, increasingly joined up, seamless organisation, from Source to delivery. The website, for example, is now an integrated part of this sacred work. What I had struggled with for 15 years since the discovery of PC1 (the very first resonance) has now become clearer and processed. So, whereas before I was clearly the instigator of this work, in Ethiopia, and soon thereafter collaborating over a long period of time with Harry van der Zee in applications in Africa and later the west, and with others in the west, yet the inner work was missing and not fully understood. Now the inner side of everything has opened up, which allowed me, for a time, to separate from the more business-like activities and concentrate on this inner work with Leilani, which was a necessary step in the succession process of passing the resonance production fully to Leilani.
