What Plants Can Teach You: Consciousness And Intelligence In Nature
June 17, 2014 - July 8, 2014$129.00
Host: Dennis McKenna
5 Sessions, starts June 17
Discover how to apply insights from the emerging “intelligent nature” paradigm to your life with the field’s leading pioneers.
What can you learn from the brilliance of nature? A new paradigm is emerging that recasts how we relate to and understand nature, supported by new scientific evidence. Plants instruct us through their behavior, through their interdependence with the environment, and through direct transmissions conveyed by spirit. As we grow more sensitive to the ways plants communicate with us, we encounter the depth of their wisdom, and become more capable of receiving the many kinds of healing they have to offer.
- Discover ways to be attentive to plant wisdom and how to apply it to your life.
- See how the vibrant behavior of plants challenges society’s materialist, mechanistic beliefs.
- Hear the latest scientific research — which will change how you think of plants forever.
Recognize how the beauty, intricacy and sentience of plants can be a guide to your own awakening and transformation.
A decade ago, the notion that plants respond to their environment in ways that look like conscious behavior, or at least reflect “intelligence,” would be dismissed as fringe. But today this approach is supported by solid science, and that changed perception is transforming how we understand and relate to all of Nature.
Legendary ethnopharmacologist Dennis McKenna has dedicated his life to exploring the intelligence of plants. He recognizes that the healing potential of plants is far greater than our materialist society acknowledges. In this unique live, interactive video course, Dennis will share with you the many ways we can learn from plants, and the wide range of wisdom they make available to us.
He has invited some of the leading experts in the emerging field of plant intelligence to help you understand, integrate and learn to use the most recent research from this exciting field. They include:
Chris Kilham – Author and educator, Chris is the FOX News Medicine Hunter, is on the Medical Advisory Board of the Dr. Oz Show, and is Explorer in Residence for Naturex, conducting medicinal plant research for the largest botanical extraction company in the world.
Stephen Harrod Buhner – Senior researcher for the Foundation for Gaian Studies, he is the award-winning author of 19 books, including, most recently, Plant Intelligence and the Imaginal Realm.
Tony Wright – Co-author of the underground sensation, Left in the Dark, now being released in a revised edition as Return to the Brain of Eden: Restoring the Connection between Neurochemistry and Consciousness.
Dayna Baumeister – Co-founder and Keystone of Biomimicry 3.8 and The Biomimicry Institute.
Simon G. Powell – Author of The Psilocybin Solution and Darwin’s Unfinished Business: The Self-Organizing Intelligence of Nature.
You will be part of the discussion, able to ask your questions on camera, just like a Skype call. If you happen to miss a live session, you can view a video recording at any time. These sessions will be filled with provocative information, honest testimonials, and practical advice from some of the thinkers, writers, and doers at the leading edge of this new, emerging paradigm of reality.
You will learn:
- How your diet can bring you closer to the subtle intelligence of plants
- Why Nature teaches us that collaboration is more important than competition
- The latest scientific findings that have redefined our understanding of how plants “think”
- How shamans pay attention in order to understand the language of plants
- Ways that plants offer direct examples of practical solutions for architects, engineers, artists, among many other professions
- How understanding the intrinsic intelligence of Nature leads us to a greater appreciation of our own spiritual capabilities.
Over 5 sessions, Dennis and his guests will explore how a new paradigm in plant science is revolutionizing our fundamental sense of what it means to be human. Learn from this diverse group of international experts how understanding the intelligence of Nature opens the path to new levels of physical, emotional and spiritual healing.
