Would you like to harness the healing power of nature’s pharmacy to keep your family healthy, treat illness holistically, lower stress, or balance hormones?
Do you want to deepen your understanding and application of plant medicine to heal your body, mind, emotions, AND spirit?
You can actually increase the efficacy of your use of herbs and essential oils by tapping into the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda...
Practitioners of Ayurveda have long known that plants and flowers have remarkable properties that can help address multiple levels of your being beyond just your physical health — including removing blocks to intimacy in your relationships, finding fulfillment in your life’s work, and clarifying your soul’s purpose.
You may already be integrating plant medicine into your daily routines through botanicals, aromatherapy, cooking, and gardening.
However, plants can not only be used in these ways to heal your body, treat injuries, clear your mind, and reverse aging... they can also support your spiritual development and heal karmic patterns.
And you can amplify the healing power of plants by matching their properties with the healing qualities of the sun, moon, and planets — without being an astrologer!
Leading Brazilian healer and teacher Arjun Das, one of the emerging leaders in plant medicine, has pioneered a powerful natural and integrative approach that explores how to explore herbs, essential oils, and gemstones linked to physiological and energetic systems through the lens of Ayurveda.
The Power of Celestial Herbalism draws from the ancient Ayurvedic system of classifying herbs according to divine archetypes, represented by the celestial bodies.
According to Vedic astrology, the placement of the sun, moon, and planets at the moment of your birth (and as they move about the sky throughout your life) influence your physical, mental, and emotional health...
The positive energies of the planets, in tandem with specific medicinal plants, can enhance your ability to heal different systems in your body, deepen your vitality, and increase your inner peace and happiness.
You can even use Celestial Herbalism to help transform painful relationship patterns...
In Ayurvedic texts, herbs were also classified according to planetary archetypes and divinities. Yet, the ancient link between Ayurveda herbology and astrology had been lost. Until now.
Arjun Das is bringing you this practical and powerful synthesis to help you pinpoint underlying imbalances AND treat the root causes of physical, emotional, and life challenges with herbs that can connect you with the positive influences of planets.
A “weak” Mars may create mind-body energy imbalances that contribute to mental confusion or a lack of determination. Vetiver, an herb dedicated to Mars and associated with bravery and a desire to act, helps increase mental clarity and confidence.
Frankincense is classified with Saturn, whose qualities include maturity and dedication. A person who’s lacking discipline or experiencing low energy may also experience infections in the body, indicated by a weak Saturn in the birth chart. Frankincense could be used to treat the body and increase personal discipline and a sense of responsibility, which may be related to important life or karmic lessons for that person.
In a person with digestive issues, a weak Sun, which is associated with the Divine Father, might have trouble “digesting” emotions as well, creating relationship challenges. Fennel seeds, a safe, effective herb used to soothe imbalances associated with the Sun, could be used to cleanse toxins in the digestive system — or to clear energy blockages or "toxic" emotions in a marriage or partnership.
Nature has specific remedies for your unique constitution, health, and life challenges... remedies which are supported by the planets.
Many of these remedies can be grown in your garden and used in your cooking. You can even create your own personal celestial aromas to calm your emotions, radiate more joy, and deepen your spiritual practice.
Different blends of essential oils, uniquely supportive to YOU, can also help you emanate more confidence, manifest your dreams, and attract more abundance.
David Crow, founder of Floracopeia, and other leading teachers of plant medicine have praised Arjun’s pioneering contributions to the field. Arjun has a unique gift for identifying and classifying medicinal plants which grow locally. He was one of the first practitioners to introduce Ayurveda in Brazil and educate people about local medicinal plants, and is creating the first system of classification of plants in the country using Ayurvedic principles.
As a special addition to this course, Arjun will be streaming video of his teaching sessions so you can have an even more powerful connection and transmission. This video connection will be easy to use and will greatly increase your learning and transformation.
Course sessions are on Wednesdays at 5:00pm Pacific.
In this 7-week transformational intensive, Arjun will guide you through the fundamental spiritual skills and competencies you’ll need to successfully deepen your understanding and application of plant medicine, and show you how combining it with Vedic astrology can help heal your body, mind, emotions, and spirit.
Each weekly LIVE contemplation and training session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles of Celestial Herbalism.
In this first session with Arjun, you’ll explore the transformational power of planetary herbalism. You’ll begin applying this practical synthesis to whole-body health, which is encompassed by the three pillars of Ayurveda medicine: immunity, vitality, and metabolism.
Arjun will guide you to correlate planets with herbs whose characteristics of form, color, taste, and aroma heal and strengthen these three aspects in the physical and subtle energy bodies.
There is a divine purpose for all of your life experiences, according to Vedic astrology’s rich contribution to the concept of karma. In this second live session with Arjun, you’ll recognize the link between difficult areas of your life and your karma — and how plants can help you effectively “digest” your karma and master the lessons your soul incarnated for.
It’s time to put into practice your knowledge of plant medicine... in your kitchen and out in the garden. In this session, you’ll discover how to enhance your health, wellbeing,and cuisine with herbs and spices that stimulate healing and rebalancing.
Arjun will show you how to integrate the elements of the cosmos in your cooking, and help you create a list of local plants based on their astrological classifications and celestial healing powers.
In this exciting session, you’ll pinpoint the most active planetary energies in your life and match these energies with specific aromas to create your personal celestial scent. This unique fragrance, based on your “astral signature,” will consist of a healing blend of aromas associated with planets in your birth chart.
In Ayurveda, there’s a great emphasis on the therapeutic astral energies of gemstones, which are applied mainly to healing karma. In this session, Arjun offers a practical and powerful alternative to rare gemstones: essential oils. Just as precious as gemstones, essential oils allow you to access the divine energies of the planets for healing and transformation.
In this powerful session, you’ll create a unique meditation technique, employing positive affirmations and teachings directly inspired by the archetypes and qualities of the planets. Arjun will guide you to choose the best astrological moments — when the planetary energies are most potent — to enhance your spiritual practice and deepen your healing.
In this final module, you’ll create sacred daily practices integrating specific herbs and essential oils to enhance healing in your mind, body, emotions, and spirit. Arjun will guide you to access the divine energies within special mandalas and geometric symbols, using these symbols to connect with your soul and the greater cosmos.
In addition to Arjun’s transformational 7-week virtual course, you’ll receive these powerful bonus materials. These bonus selections complement the course — and promise to take your understanding and practice to an even deeper level.

Arjun Das’ class on the power of Celestial Herbalism Arjun brought the sky into my living room. He helped me taste, touch, smell and breathe the planets with his visuals, diving deeper and lectures. I am loving my planetary herbal blend and the presence of the planets that they bring to me.
— R. Auriemma, Osprey, Florida
I was amazed by Arjun Das’ depth of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom related to the subject. He’s also an outstanding teacher and chooses his words with an unparalleled depth of precision. I feel that after this course I can now really work with linking my herbal practice with the planets and their influence.
— Marie Kvarnström, Sweden
I was deeply moved by the connection of information this class revealed. Each week was a welcomed experience to listen and watch as Arjun gracefully took us on a colorful, insightful exploration of deeper thought within myself and my personal connection to the celestial energenics. I have incorporated the lessons into my daily meditation and use of incense and oils, as well as into my daily activities. I look forward to weaving these concepts into my gardening, my own craft of distilling and aromatics, along with a new appreciation towards flavors and aromas for cooking for friends and family too.
— Suzanne, Miami, Florida
This course really brought me into a space of a practical integration of the teachings on a daily basis. I love that! I can speak from my experience and integrate at my pace. I feel more in touch with myself and connected to the plants and essential oils in a different and celestial way. I cannot thank Arjun Das enough for sharing his wisdom and knowledge in an easy and practical way.
I always looked forward with joy and excitement to class with Arjun, with it the opportunity to connect with people sharing a similar passion and to learn more about this inspiring topic. I have the utmost respect for Arjun. He delivered so much understanding of an esoteric subject through his many different ways of presenting all of the aspects and applications made possible by utilizing plants to benefit our lives and consciousness. He always brought a very tender appreciation of his subject and his students that made for such a positive learning environment.
— Liberty Dawn Elliott

I’m also very grateful to Arjun Das for creating this wonderful course, simplifying it for us to be able to make use of it in our daily lives with much joy, fervor, and knowledge with inner connection.
— Nandini, Bengaluru, India
I received so much from the course on Celestial Herbalism in so many different ways. It brought awareness of an ancient medicinal practice. I learned how to make better companion planting in my garden to utilize the energy all around us more effectively. Uses of herbs in food, smells, and various applications for health in mind, body, and soul. The instructor, Arjun Das, was well-prepared and presented material in a cohesive manner. His enthusiasm and respect for his subject matter shone through in every lecture. I learned a lot and took “home” many good ideas as well as a thirst for more knowledge in this area. Well done!
— Denise Flinchbaugh, Elizabeth, Colorado
The Celestial Herbalism course integrated the healing wisdom of the Vedic sciences and guided me to cultivate a deeper connection to the plants, the cosmos, and myself. A brilliant and inspiring experience, I look forward to applying what I learned in my practice of Ayurveda and Jyotish.
— Dhyana Bohnet, Sebastopol, California

— David Crow, Founder of Floracopeia and author of In Search of The Medicine Buddha
Arjun Das is a very special exponent of Ayurveda. His experience has a history of almost two decades and this is unique among practitioners of this science.

Arjun is a very nice person and I sincerely recommend [his teachings] to everyone.

— Dr. Shekhar Annambhotla, President of the Association of Ayurvedic Professionals of North America (AAPNA)
Arjun Das is one of those rare teachers who combines a vast knowledge on the science of life, Ayurveda, with spirituality in the shadow of which this art was born and developed in ancient India. At present, when it’s [common] to find professionals centered only on the technical aspects and rare to find those who practice and teach in the light of the ancestral tradition, the work and life example of Arjun Das are especially important.
— Pedro Kupfer, Yoga teacher and author

“I’ve never seen a course so well put together ever...”
I had never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion, and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon within which to participate. I’ve never seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
