& Founder of Anima Mundi Herbals
Explore the ancient wisdom of medical astrology — the correlation between the archetypal energies of herbs, their planetary influences, and how they correspond to the various systems of our body — and how that knowledge can help you heal health challenges by creating medicine from the plants in your own garden.
Are you intrigued by the mysterious powers of the moon? Do you notice how the energy of the moon sometimes shifts your state of being — in body, mind, or spirit?
According to the ancient wisdom of medical astrology, the moon, the sun, and all the planets in our solar system hold archetypal energies that correspond to different aspects of our bodies.
Did you know that plants also hold archetypal qualities that, when prepared and used correctly, positively affect how our physical, mental, and emotional systems function?
Beginning in ancient Egypt, correlations were made between plants and planets. In fact, Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine who lived 2,500 years ago, classified diseases based on astrological phenomena, using planetary archetypes in deciphering how to diagnose and heal various illnesses.
Renowned rainforest herbalist and medicine maker Adriana Ayales, an educator, writer, and founder of Anima Mundi Herbals, bridges the principles of these ancient remedies, along with the power of ritual...
... to connect ancestral ways of diagnostics and the spiritual aspects of the natural world with the preparation and usage of herbal medicine.
Deeply inspired by her grandmother as a child, Adriana began studying botanical medicine at a young age — tapping into her own Indigenous roots in Central America.
Adriana, who’s known for her dynamic presence, is an expert in techniques for healing both acute and chronic issues with specific ancient plant medicine practices, recipes, rituals, and ceremonies — which she’ll begin to share with you in this compelling hour.
During this workshop, Adriana will explore the history and relationship of herbs and their planetary correspondences — and how to use their base medicinal properties as tools for understanding the archetypal energies inherent in plants.
You’ll discover how to work with plants as gateways to higher levels of consciousness — and how they can help ground you into your place in the cyclical power of nature and the divine matrix in which we all reside.
Adriana will also demonstrate how to make your own moon water — using lavender and mugwort — to enhance intuitive abilities and healing. She’ll guide you through a simple protection ritual and explain exactly how to make this vibrational essence.
As she’ll share, ritualizing your life with these ancient practices can move you into a greater state of health and wellbeing, so you can live a more energetically grounded life, with the power to heal yourself with your own home pharmacy.
During this event, Adriana will be joining us from her home in Costa Rica to:
- Guide you through the ritual process of making moon water using common plants you can grow in your own garden — to draw on plant energy and vitality for emotional and spiritual healing
- Explore the power of archetypes and ceremony in making powerful plant remedies for protection, intuition, overall wellbeing — and for accessing the intelligence of nature
- Demonstrate how physical, energetic, spiritual, and emotional imbalances can be understood and healed based on their archetypal qualities inherent within plants and nature
- Share a brief history of medical astrology and how herbs were used based on planetary correspondences to prevent and treat dis-ease
Adriana will reveal why herbs have complex personalities. They grow, develop, and thrive under certain cosmological influences, much as we do.
When you join us for this hour, you’ll also hear about Adriana’s new 7-week course, in which you’ll come to deeply understand herbs and their planetary associations. You’ll learn how to plant, harvest, and work with herbs based on their astrological correspondences... formulating your own powerful medicinal preparations to heal the body, nourish emotions, and evolve the soul.
