While plant medicines have powerful pharmacological properties that work in our bodies to prevent and heal disease, their power goes far beyond that. In Sanskrit, the word ‘yoga’ is used to signify many forms of connection, or union. In its highest philosophical sense, yoga means conscious connection of the individual self with the highest Self and to Source, where you feel connected to the rhythms and cycles of the cosmos.
When you connect with plant medicine in this larger context, new doors to well-being and consciousness open for you. Science and spirit come together in this workshop, as we explore our biological and spiritual connection with the botanical kingdom for healing on multiple levels.

You will learn:
New understanding of and relationships with plants that feed the body, mind and spirit
Wisdom from Ayurvedic medicine and ancient cultures
Breakthrough thinking from leading edge sciences of nutrigenomics and psychoneuroimmunology
The 5 root causes of illness, and how to use plant medicine to heal each level
Specific techniques and contemplative practices to open consciousness by cultivating close and dynamic relationships with plant allies and understanding their lessons

This workshop is for: Herbalists, Gardeners, Healers, Yoga philosophers, Plant lovers of all kinds.
