Join David Crow for a weekend of special events in Fort Collins, CO.
Saturday, July 14: Contemplative Aromatherapy
Contemplative Aromatherapy" is an experiential approach to studying essential oils and their effects on body and mind using a combination of classical Buddhist meditation methods and Ayurvedic medical philosophy.
There are two basic ways to use essential oils with meditation practice. The first is to use oils to enhance meditative states, and the second is to use meditation to study the oils. In this program we use both these approaches, both separately and together.
Because of the links among olfaction, the limbic system and awareness, when botanical aromatics are used consciously and deliberately to support meditation practice their effects become more powerful. Likewise, deep contemplation reveals the presence of the plant consciousness that is responsible for creating the aromatic compounds.
By studying essential oils in this contemplative way, we learn how they can transform consciousness and benefit emotional and spiritual wellbeing, enhance and deepen our awareness of the body/mind relationship, help us recognize the hidden dimensions of intelligence within the plants, and increase sensitivity to our biological unity with all beings.
