Deepen your relationship with the plant world to access new realms of knowledge, elevate your consciousness and manifest your life purpose.
In the modern West, we’ve been raised to think of plants as objects that exist chiefly for our pleasure and consumption. We use them to nourish our bodies and beautify our gardens and homes.
The truth is that plants are so much more than that. They are multi-dimensional, living beings with whom we have a sacred relationship that can help us evolve on many levels.
They can detoxify our bodies, purify our minds, rebalance our emotions, and reboot our energy. They can help us heal diseases and expand our vision.
As you learn to open to the deeper blessings of plants, you can receive more of their healing and medicinal powers and put yourself on a path to radiant health and even spiritual illumination.
Plants are actually conscious, sentient life forms connected in complex and mysterious ways to the health of our bodies and minds.
On the most basic level, the human race is dependent on plants just to survive. But they can also helps us truly thrive.
When we relate to plants with gratitude, humility and reverence, they can teach us a great deal about ourselves, our connection to each other and the art of living.
When combined with meditative practices and mindfulness, plants can serve as a foundation for a spiritual practice that transforms negative conditions and creates exciting new opportunities for manifesting our greater life purpose.
Ancient seers, mystics, and healers discovered many of these secret properties and passed down this knowledge in lineages such as Ayurveda and Chinese medicine in the East and herbalism in the West.
Now you can harvest the best of these healing traditions, marry them with spiritual practice and create a new paradigm for your health and wholeness, in the new 12-module Medicinal Plants & Spiritual Evolution 2.0.
A New Paradigm of Relating to Plants
The prospect of creating a new-paradigm relationship with plants can be intimidating. It could take a lifetime to study and master multiple disciplines — from botany and medicine to sacred traditions and spiritual practices.
Rather than sifting through and distilling this endless array of information on your own, what if you could take a three-month virtual journey with a master guide who has dedicated his life to exploring, classifying and documenting the practical, medical, psychological and spiritual powers of plants?
Such a guide can navigate you through the hype and misinformation common in this field. Science tends to view the esoteric healing lore of plants with skepticism, preferring the cold, clinical certainty of pharmaceutical drugs.
The major botanical medicine traditions, while infused with great wisdom, tend to have blind spots and knowledge gaps.
Floracopeia founder David Crow, L.Ac. is one of today’s greatest synthesizers of the vast knowledge contained within the plant kingdom. He not only has assimilated the research, he has spent decades immersed in the ancient healing arts.
David has journeyed deep into Chinese and Ayurvedic traditions, and studied with masters the world over. This hard-earned wisdom and knowledge is now available to you in a powerful virtual format.
A Cornucopia of Practical Healing Wisdom
In Medicinal Plants & Spiritual Evolution 2.0, David has synthesized proven techniques, tips, and strategies for accessing the profound healing, restorative, medicinal and spiritual powers of plants, in 12 information-rich modules.
The course is labeled 2.0 because it builds upon and expands on David’s original Medicinal Plants & Spiritual Evolution program by adding a wealth of specific practices for detoxification, rejuvenation and manifestation.
You’ll learn about the critical role plants play in the purification of the world and your body, as well as which medicinal plants protect against environmental toxicity. You’ll discover how Ayurvedic, Tibetan and Chinese medicine use plants to detoxify the body and mind.
You’ll understand why detoxification — whether of environmental poisons or toxic addictions — promotes health, happiness and fulfillment and contributes to individual and collective spiritual evolution.
You’ll receive clear-cut instructions for combining medicinal plants with meditation practices, using illness, trauma, pain and addiction as a springboard for spiritual growth.
You’ll gain knowledge about the ways plants can revitalize your body, mind and spirit and learn practical rejuvenation therapies that enhance cognitive function, longevity and spiritual development.
You’ll also study the relationship between flowering plants and the health of the biosphere, and how GMOs affect the “pranic intelligence” of food plants, human health, and consciousness.
You’ll be given specific strategies for obtaining high-quality nourishment in this age of food and chemical sensitivities — and for using nutrient-rich plants to boost your immune system, overcome fatigue and slow aging.
The final modules comprise a master class in ecological spirituality. You’ll see how medicinal plants can help you deepen your meditation practice, cultivate spiritual awareness and manifest your life purpose.
You’ll discover that spiritual traditions are rooted in nature and that plants are the bridge between spirit and matter. And you’ll learn about the energetic intelligence of medicinal plants that supports your body’s healing intelligence.
Finally, you’ll discover the ancient and modern uses of visionary power plants, how to use aromatic plants and essential oils to calm, balance and uplift your entire being — and how to apply the immunological and psychological benefits of “sacred scents.”
David will escort you across the threshold of an enthralling new world that empowers effective healing and nourishment of your body, mind and soul — and those of your loved ones.
