The Role of Adaptogenic Herbs in Classical Asian Medicine, Mythology & Spiritual Practices

Broadcast on June 29, 2021
With David Crow, LAc
Hosted by Nick Mattos

Before modern Western culture learned about “adaptogenic” herbs, there were Soma herbs that supported higher consciousness, Chu Len herbs that restored youthfulness, Rasayana herbs that rejuvenated the body and slowed the aging process, Shen herbs for cultivating meditation practice, Vajikarana herbs for restoring sexual fertility and virility, and mythical Sanjeevani plants that cured the most serious diseases and protected against death. Join David Crow in a discussion about spiritual roots and historic principles of adaptogens.

In This Session:

  • Gain knowledge of the deeper historical roots of using important adaptogenic herbs that are now becoming increasingly popular
  • Develop an appreciation for the higher spiritual purposes that Tibetan Buddhist, Chinese Taoist, Hindu Vedic, and Tantric ascribed to this category of plants
  • Learn about the role of prayer and consecration of adaptogenic herbs in traditional spiritual practices
