Discover how to connect the 9 power centers of your body to universal intelligence and supercharge their health and function — physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually — with a combination of potent meditation practices and herbal remedies.


Do you ever think about how miraculous it is to be in a physical body that has the capacity to think, speak, see, breathe, hear, move, and conduct all the functions that make our lives run smoothly and meaningfully?

According to a wide variety of ancient traditions, all these powers of the body also have spiritual dimensions that make a human being’s capacity more vast than most of us can possibly imagine.

Not only that... the same intelligence that allows humans to operate at such a magnificent level of intricacy, strength, understanding, and insight also exists in every aspect of nature and our cosmos.

Celebrated herbalist David Crow, calls the wisdom that flows through the powers of our bodies, all of nature, and the whole of the universe cosmological intelligence — and it’s what enables us to feel that magical experience of unity with all that is.

David explains that our bodies have nine power centers — the brain, vision, breath, speech, metabolism, the glands, sexual vitality, protection, and the heart...

... each of which has enormous physical and spiritual capabilities that allow us to not only function, but thrive — physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Your power of vision, for example, not only enables your eyes to see. It also lets you experience your connection to outer and inner light... gives you the ability to imagine and dream... can transport you into visionary states and inner illumination...

... allows you to receive guidance from your subconscious, re-envision yourself so you can manifest the future of your deepest desires, and ignites in you the power to see the inner light of others.

Join David in this mind-opening workshop, where he’ll walk you through these nine powers of the body, and explore how you can supercharge their function using the combination of specific, highly potent herbal formulas and their associated contemplative spiritual practices.

You’ll learn that when you couple specific meditations with specific herbs, you potentize the health of those power centers, both physically and spiritually.


In this free hour-long event, you’ll discover:

  • How to improve your health using 2 major categories of herbs that can supercharge the power of your body centers — and how these same herbs support various types of meditation
  • A simple method to actually experience the presence of solar energy in your body — the basis of your body’s power of metabolism
  • An easy meditation to enter into the awareness of biological unity with all beings through a mindful breath practice
  • How knowing about these 9 centers of power in your body can increase your understanding of how your body works, how to improve the function of your powers, and how they can support your overall wellbeing and accomplishments
  • That the physiological functions of the 9 centers are the manifestation of cosmological intelligence inside the body... and also the basis of countless spiritual practices through history designed to sacralize the body and help you perceive its inherent divinity

David, who designed and is teaching The Shift Network’s first year-long certification program in Illuminated Herbalism, will focus on two easily accessible forms of cosmological intelligence that are continuously happening in your body:

  • The breath as the unifying field of life force within all livings beings
  • The warmth of metabolism as a direct biological connection to the sun and solar energy

You’ll have the opportunity to truly feel both of these powers in your own body as he guides you through two meditation practices that connect you with them.

The first practice can then be augmented with the mindful use of herbal medicines to open your respiratory system — increasing oxygenation while, at the same time, deepening your mindfulness of the breath.

You can magnify the impact of the second practice using plant formulas that increase your metabolism and improve your digestion, while also deepening the awareness of your relationship to solar energy.

David will offer you a glimpse into the essence of these mystical teachings — this body-based spirituality and wellness tradition — from which you can develop an immense reverence, meditative concentration, and appreciation for the miraculous processes of life.

When you join us for this hour, you’ll also hear about his brand-new 12-week course, in which you’ll take a deep dive into all nine body powers, the herbs that will improve both the physical and spiritual properties of those centers, and the contemplative practices that support both.

In addition to learning what botanical remedies heal various parts of your body, you’ll cultivate an awareness that arises from a profound sense of freedom and genuine compassion...

... knowing that the physiological activities of your body are manifestations of an ancient cosmological intelligence — and that you’re part of the magnificent fabric of all existence.
