David Crow, LAc
Starts Wednesday, July 10, 2019
Includes 7-Module Introductory Program!

Unlock deeper dimensions of healing with major herbs and essential oils for strengthening and balancing life-force energies in your mind and body.

Discover a unique synthesis of plant medicine, spirituality, and classic Asian healing approaches to awaken your profound connection with the cosmos.

Become part of a global plant medicine community as you journey through David’s — and plant medicine’s — most comprehensive program yet.

Are you aware that the true power of plant medicine is rooted in the energetic qualities (prana) of the remedies you’re taking and practices you’re applying?

Different qualities of prana also flow through your body, mind, and emotions, in nature, and throughout the cosmos…

So it’s not surprising to discover that prana is directly connected to your health, happiness, powers of manifestation — and even to karmic patterns and your ancestral lineage.

In almost every ancient lineage, health, illness, and consciousness are perceived as processes of energy — in the essence of the sun and moon, the elements, medicinal plants and oils, and the evolution of spirit within matter.

YOU are an entire matrix of all these cosmological energies and terrestrial elements, which you can strengthen and bring into balance through specific practices.

Renowned plant medicine pioneer David Crow’s teachings can help you attune to these energies in your body, herbs, oils, and the elements — for deeper healing… beyond plant medicine.

This brand-new program is a powerful blend of LIVE teachings, meditation practices, and explorations into botanical energy and remedies to activate profound healing — for your body, mind, and spiritual awakening.

You’ll discover the complete system of study and practices based on these millennia old lineages of medicine, meditation and mysticism. David will offer simple and direct ways to deeply understand how the body is a matrix of energies — animated by nature’s profound evolutionary intelligence.

This is the most comprehensive program with David in, and beyond, plant medicine, period. And you’ll have access to David during the live sessions for your most pressing questions…

Discover the MOST Comprehensive Plant Medicine Program

The Matrix of Magic 6-Month Experiential Intensive provides simple and direct ways to access deeper healing and awareness of different energies in your body, in plants and all around you.

For example, David teaches that each of the five elements produces body sensations that can be directly correlated with each element…

You can feel the air element when you’re breathing. And the fire element is expressed in the warmth of your body, experienced also through sunlight.

Your direct perception of these body sensations awakens your integral connection with nature.

Over this 6-month intensive LIVE program and community, David Crow will guide you to become aware of, strengthen, and balance the healing intelligence that flows through your body, mind, and emotions.

Your greater awareness and understanding of the life force of the natural world and within you — will support your health and wellbeing, bring insights into the current conditions of life, increase your sense of inner peace, and help reveal your profound “cosmological identity.”

By learning to tune into the matrix of energies within you, you’ll enhance your use of botanical remedies and awaken your consciousness.

IIn Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, Qi and Prana are the basis of diagnosis and treatment. In yoga and meditation, they’re the basis of spiritual practices and transformation.

David will teach you the five classifications and types of Prana operating at all levels of your body and mind — from physiological functions to states of consciousness to the flow of time and the cycle of birth and death.

And you’ll discover that this knowledge, perception, and understanding of the nature of Prana is synonymous with spiritual evolution — and that it can be a basis for making healthy lifestyle choices, managing stress, and even understanding the karmic and ancestral influences in your life.

During this brand-new 6-month LIVE program and online community with David Crow, you’ll discover:

  • How the Prana and Qi of plants affect the quality, quantity, and movement of Prana and Qi in the body
  • The different meanings of enlightenment in meditative, yogic, and spiritual lineages
  • How awareness of the elements and energies of the body transforms ordinary consciousness into ecological spirituality — and develops intuition for self-healing
  • The role of medicinal plants in supporting the spiritual path
  • How the qualities of consciousness determine the relationship between the body and the world, and how that supports or damages health and wellbeing
  • Introduction to the 5 element systems of Ayurveda and Chinese medicine
  • A sacred relationship with nature’s elements in and around you
  • How the 5 elements combine to form the 3 biological systems of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha
  • Meditations to experience the biorhythmic powers of flower essential oils
  • Primary herbs and essential oils for supporting the solar energies and fire element of the body
  • The self-love and self-nourishment of heart-focused meditation
  • Listening to the heartbeat to connect with ancestral memories
  • And so much more…

The Matrix of Magic 6-Month Intensive

David Crow is the founder of Floracopeia, the bestselling author of In Search of the Medicine Buddha, and one of today’s great synthesizers of ancient plant wisdom and healing lineages.

In this advanced program, David brings deep knowledge of Chinese, Tibetan and Ayurvedic medicine — as rich repositories not only of ethnobotanical knowledge for healing the body, but also of spiritual practices and mystical insights from the cultures they evolved in. Along with the lineages of yogic and contemplative disciplines of its time, classical Asian medicine explored and recorded the subtle energetic systems that lie at the interface of body, mind, and spirit.

The physiological activities of the body are manifestations of ancient cosmological intelligence. By developing an awareness of the flows of energies and elements in the body, we begin to develop an awareness of our deeper unity with nature, and our true spiritual identity.

We can use medicinal plants to support and deepen our meditative studies of the subtle energies of the body, their origins and interconnectedness with the cosmos, and conversely, we can also use meditation to enhance our understanding of the energies and elements in medicinal plants.

Using a synthesis of meditation and plant medicines, David will guide you to explore and unlock the spiritual dimensions of the body that normally function in the background of awareness without clear insight into their deeper dimensions or implications for our cosmological identity.

As you move through the various stages of study and contemplation, you’ll find that these ancient concepts have valuable applications for health and wellbeing, increasing self-knowledge, giving insights into the current conditions of life, and finding inner peace through understanding your true spiritual nature and deeper cosmological identity.

For those who were introduced to the preliminary levels of these teachings through their previous studies with David, these modules go into greater depth and breadth — both in theory and in practice — while those who are joining this journey will find the teachings and practices easily accessible.

Greater Connection Through Live Streaming Video

So you can better connect with David and his teachings, all of his sessions will be live streamed on video — for the first time ever! This video connection will be easy to use and will enhance the impact of David’s teaching. Or, you can easily connect via audio only, either through the internet or on your phone.

What You’ll Discover in These 6 Months

LIVE video sessions are on Wednesdays at 5:00pm Pacific.

In this 6-month transformational program, David will guide you through the fundamental skills and competencies you’ll need to have a deep, meaningful, and sustained internal relationship with the intelligence of nature as it operates in your body and mind.

Every month, you’ll join David and this global community for three LIVE teachings, which will build harmoniously upon the previous sessions so you’ll receive a complete, holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles based on millennia-old lineages of medicine, meditation, and mysticism. You’ll discover simple, yet powerful practices to help you perceive how your body — and its complicated matrix of energies — are animated and healed by nature’s profound intelligence.

If you have not experienced David’s work before, you’re welcome to sign up for this intensive training and we will bundle in his introductory course, The Matrix of Magic: Unlock the Spiritual Dimensions of Your Being With Meditation & Botanical Medicine — which you can do before, or in parallel with, this more advanced program. This extra training is described below and is included in your registration.

Modules 1-3: The Matrix of Illumination

Spiritual evolution and ultimate realization do not lie in the outer world, but within the stream of consciousness and its relationship to the body’s matrix of energies and elements.

All yogic and meditative traditions teach that the spiritual path lies in the inner transformation of the heart and mind, which takes place in the container of the body.

But what exactly is the ultimate goal of these diverse practices, described in numerous ways in different times and cultures? What is most relevant and attainable for people in the modern world — and what is the best way to attain that goal?

Modules 1-3 will set the stage for the course by exploring why we should look deeply into the nature of the body, mind, and heart, how we’ll do it, how we can use medicinal plants to support our quest and journey, and what we can realistically hope to achieve.

Modules 4-6: The Matrix of Energy

The matrix of the body and mind is energized by a life force, known in classical Asian philosophy as Prana and Qi…

The concepts of Prana and Qi are central to all Vedic, Ayurvedic, Tantric, and Taoist yogic, meditative, and healing lineages. In medicine, Prana and Qi are the basis of diagnosis and treatment; in yoga, Qigong, and meditation they the basis of spiritual practices.

From classical Asian medicine we learn there are numerous classifications and types of Prana and Qi operating at all levels of the body and mind — from physiological functions to states of consciousness, to the flow of time, to the cycle of birth and death.

This knowledge, perception and understanding of the nature of Prana and Qi is synonymous with spiritual evolution… it’s also the basis of making healthy lifestyle choices, managing stress, and myriad other important practical applications.

Modules 7-9: The Matrix of Incarnation

The inner spiritual teachings of classical Asian medicine and its associated yogic influences offer profound insights into fundamental existential questions

Questions related to life and death, the relationship of the body and mind, and how formless consciousness inhabits the matrix of elemental form. Tibetan embryology describes how patterns of consciousness in the incarnating mindstream determine the elemental constitution of the body at the time of conception.

The Kalachakra Tantra, one of the influences of Tibetan medicine, describes how the external world is created by the incarnating consciousness as a place for fulfilling its karmas. Taoist mystics tell us that spirit transforms into birth and back again in an ongoing cycle.

From Vedanta and Ayurveda we learn there are five interwoven bodies — from the external elements of food and water to the most subtle consciousness beyond time and space. From Sankkya philosophy and Ayurveda we learn that mahat, universal mind, evolves into individual mind and sense consciousness.

Tantric meditation teaches us that for Prana to awaken the subtle nervous system of the chakras, we must first create a mental body of emptiness as the container.

Studying these profound teachings deepens our self-knowledge and spiritual awareness.

Indeed, contemplating the mystical dimensions of life, death and incarnation is one of the most direct paths to spiritual growth — and the development of inner wisdom.

Modules 10-12: The Matrix of Elements

The body is a system of channels, and the elements of earth flow through as nutrients, water as fluids, sunlight as metabolic heat, and breath.

The movement of these four elements through the channels of internal space create the flow of physical sensations that give rise to our experience of being incarnated in a body and the illusory sensation of separation from the world and others.

With relatively little effort, you can suspend the illusion of your biological boundaries and experience the deeper underlying elemental unity we have with all life… which is directly connected in every moment to the same flowing elements that are moving through us all with each breath and heartbeat.

From this awareness arises a profound sense of freedom knowing that we are woven into the fabric of existence, yet free of ultimate substantiality. From that realization dawns the simple, spontaneous, and genuine compassion of ecological spirituality.
