Course Overview

The Nectar of Plants, Part III - Individuation & Evolution takes a special and close look at the deepest level of our being, the yuan or essence level. This level includes our sense of who we are, our genetics and how we evolve in this lifetime as well as from generation to generation. This level is often hidden or “secret” and not easily accessible, yet with essential oils that are themselves the “essence” or innermost aspect of a plant, this level becomes not only accessible but even can be subject to conscious evolution. Healing from the yuan level makes it possible to heal both past and future generations, while charting new directions in this very body in this lifetime. Essential oils offer a simple, non-invasive and powerful way to tap into this deep layer of awareness as well as catalyzing changes throughout the body.
