Would you like to harness the healing power of nature’s pharmacy to treat illness, lower stress, and keep your family and your clients healthy?
Do you want to deepen your application of plant medicine for healing your body, mind, emotions, and spirit?
You can actually increase the efficacy of your use of herbs and essential oils — and experience a deeper level of wellbeing — by tapping into the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda.
Practitioners of Ayurveda have long known that plants and flowers have remarkable properties that can help address multiple levels of your being beyond just your physical health — including removing blocks to intimacy in your relationships, finding fulfillment in your life’s work, and identifying and living your soul’s purpose.
You may already be integrating plant medicine into your daily routines — through botanicals, aromatherapy, cooking, and gardening.
However, plants can not only be used in these ways to heal your body, treat injuries, clear your mind, and reverse aging... they can also support your spiritual development and heal karmic patterns.
And you can amplify the healing power of plants by matching their properties with the healing qualities of the sun, moon, and planets (without being an astrologer)!
For instance, applying the ancient wisdom of lunar cycles can make your formulations stronger and your therapies more effective. And you can create special massage oils, synergies, blends, and elixirs from the correspondence of stars, herbs, and crystals.
Leading Brazilian healer and teacher Arjun Das, one of the emerging leaders in plant medicine and an expert in Ayurveda, has pioneered a powerful natural and integrative approach that explores how a Vedic birth chart can help you easily identify herbs and essential oils to boost immunity, increase vitality, and even transform relationships.
Celestial Herbalism draws from the ancient Ayurvedic system of classifying herbs according to divine archetypes, represented by the celestial bodies.
According to Vedic astrology, the placement of the sun, moon, and planets at the moment of your birth (and as they move about the sky throughout your life!) influence your physical, mental, and emotional health.
The positive energies of the planets, in tandem with specific medicinal plants, can enhance your ability to heal different systems in your body, deepen your vitality, and increase your inner peace and happiness.
In Ayurvedic texts, herbs were also classified according to planetary archetypes and divinities. Yet, the ancient link between Ayurvedic herbology and astrology had been lost. Until now.
Arjun Das is bringing you this practical, new synthesis to help you pinpoint underlying imbalances AND treat the root causes of challenges with herbs that can connect you with the positive influences of planets.
A “weak” Mars may create mind-body energy imbalances that contribute to mental confusion or a lack of determination. Vetiver, an herb dedicated to Mars and associated with bravery and a desire to act, helps increase mental clarity and confidence.
Frankincense is classified with Saturn, whose qualities include maturity and dedication. A person who’s lacking discipline or experiencing low energy may also experience infections in the body, indicated by a weak Saturn in the birth chart. Frankincense could be used to treat the body and increase personal discipline and a sense of responsibility, which may be life or karmic lessons for that person.
In a person with digestive issues, a weak Sun, which is associated with the Divine Father, might have trouble “digesting” emotions as well, creating relationship challenges. Fennel seeds, a safe, effective herb used to soothe imbalances associated with the Sun, could be used to cleanse toxins in the digestive system — or to clear energy blockages or "toxic" emotions in a marriage or partnership.
Advanced Celestial Herbalism is designed to show you how making your own herbal formulations and crafting your own celestial prescriptions can enhance your own life as well as the lives of others through your Ayurvedic-informed counselling and spiritual guidance.
Ultimately, by becoming a facilitator of Celestial Herbalism, you can help yourself, your clients, and all of humanity cope with and heal physical, emotional, spiritual, and relationship struggles.
Nature has specific remedies for your unique constitution, health, and life challenges... remedies which are supported by the planets.
Many of these remedies can be grown in your garden and used in your cooking. You can even create your own personal celestial aromas to calm your emotions, radiate more joy, and deepen your spiritual practice.
Different blends of essential oils, uniquely supportive to YOU, can also help you emanate more confidence, manifest your dreams, and attract more abundance.
David Crow, founder of Floracopeia, and other leading teachers of plant medicine have praised Arjun’s pioneering contributions to the field. Arjun has a unique gift of identifying and classifying medicinal plants which grow locally. He was one of the first practitioners to introduce Ayurveda in Brazil, educating people about local medicinal plants, and is creating the first system of classification of plants in the country using Ayurvedic principles.
As a special addition to this course, Arjun will be live streaming video of his teaching sessions so you can have an even more powerful connection and transmission. This live video connection will be easy to use and will greatly increase your learning and transformation.
Course sessions are on Wednesdays at 5:00pm Pacific.

In these two sessions, you’ll:

I have incorporated the lessons into my daily meditation and use of incense and oils, as well as into my daily activities. I look forward to weaving these concepts into my gardening, my own craft of distilling and aromatics, along with a new appreciation towards flavors and aromas for cooking for friends and family too.

I received so much from the course on Celestial Herbalism in so many different ways. It brought awareness of an ancient medicinal practice. I learned how to make better companion planting in my garden to utilize the energy all around us more effectively. Uses of herbs in food, smells, and various applications for health in mind, body, and soul. The instructor, Arjun Das, was well-prepared and presented material in a cohesive manner. His enthusiasm and respect for his subject matter shone through in every lecture. I learned a lot and took “home” many good ideas as well as a thirst for more knowledge in this area. Well done!

I feel honored to have been fortunate enough to have found such an admirable person as Arjun Das. I consider him as my son and my special student as well. In addition, being an Indian, I’m very happy he is spreading Ayurveda internationally. He has a unique personality among the foreign guests I met, with great kindness and affection. His love and devotion to Ayurveda, and his sincerity to study and teach this science is very appreciable. I forward my blessings and wishes for longevity, success, kindness, prosperity, and a happy life in his family. My prayers are always with him.

Arjun Das is a very special exponent of Ayurveda. His experience has a history of almost two decades and this is unique among practitioners of this science.

Arjun Das is one of those rare teachers who combines a vast knowledge on the science of life, Ayurveda, with the spirituality in the shadow of which this art was born and developed in ancient India. At present, when we so often find professionals centered only on the technical aspects, and so rarely find those who practice and teach in the light of the ancestral tradition, the work and life example of Arjun Das are especially important.
— Pedro Kupfer, Yoga teacher and author
I have a greater understanding of the connection between plants and the planets. I’ve always felt this but never understood it. I’m now on the path to understanding at a level I never imagined!
