Learn the Ancient Ways of "Listening to Incense"

Take a guided journey through the many levels of aroma and the subtle qualities of aromatic plants. Learn how to connect more deeply to the emotional, sensual, energetic, and spiritual virtues of aroma.

Tap in to the countless healing qualities of aromatic plants by learning from the plants themselves on experiential levels, as well as through discussions on historical, spiritual, and medicinal uses; and rich esoteric wisdom of aromatic incense herbs.

Discover the ancient Japanese ways of "Listening to Incense" that have contributed so much to the many branches of aromatics, and tune in to the many different layers and aspects of incense and the sacred sense of smell through aromatherapeutic, holy smoke in the confines of your own home.

There are 3 main aspects of Incense & Aroma: spiritual/ritual, medicinal/healing, aesthetic/practical.

Incense smoke is a golden thread that weaves the cultures of the world together. It is present in almost all sacred rituals and ancient spiritual practices. Therefore, it can act as a gateway for our spiritual transformation and personal evolution.

There is an incredible amount of wisdom behind the sacredness and ritual uses of plant smoke and aromatics across every culture. So much that one person cannot possibly understand it all in a lifetime.

However, learning about and experiencing incense and aroma in traditional sacred ways can be a profound key for unlocking the fragrant world of wonder and wisdom, and can contribute immensely to your current practice with aromatics and herbs. It can give you an ancient lens of perception that can help to bring rootedness and strengthen the foundations of your work.

I first discovered incense back in high school, and it became my gateway to sacredness and spirituality. It opened the doors to meditation, Buddhism, Eastern Philosophy, and many sacred sciences of the world for me at an early age. In my early twenties, I became fully immersed in herbal medicine, indigenous teachings, and many esoteric practices.

My quest for greater healing, a sense of sacredness, and ancient traditions took me on a lifelong journey of study, training, ritual experiences, and ultimately led me to the creation of Higher Mind Incense and the Northwest School of Aromatic Medicine.

Incense was a tangible means that connected me to the wisdom of nature, the plant kingdom, and human spirituality. Our mainstream culture here in the West lacks sacred ritual. Unless you are Native American, our ancestors come from all over the world; most of whom left their culture and sacred traditions behind. Incense and the practice of aromatic medicine can be a potent key to help us unlock, discover, or nourish our ancient spiritual connection.

Many people in our Western society believe incense to be very 'woo woo' or 'hippie dippy', and many do not think there is room for such a practice in this fast-paced world. However, in other parts of the world, incense has the most ancient of roots in many established and highly esteemed branches of traditional medicine: such as Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese medicine, and Tibetan medicine, to name a few. And it is still viewed and practiced as such in many cultures today.

The Listening to Incense program can give you the foundation and principles necessary to help you deeply understand how and why the practice of incense and aromatics have been such credible, efficient, and well-respected healing modalities for thousands of years.

This program beautifully connects the wisdom of the rich, fragrant past with the growing knowledge of the present for a new era of aromatic medicine.

The information gained from this experience is truly life changing and has given me a whole new lens of perception and way of connecting with my Incense. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity and all the heart-felt work that was put into creating this program. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to take their prayer with Incense to a whole new level! "

      -Jen Davis -Jen Davis, Seattle, WA

      "Evan's Listening to Incense course was so much more than I could have expected. First of all, thank you for making it affordable. Who knew there could be so much information about incense. Not only was the course enlightening, excitingly well written, and relevant; it allowed me to create personal conclusions and allowed for a free-thinking and meditative space that I couldn't do with just meditation alone. His incense is delightfully fragrant and pleasing which made doing the "homework" enticing and fun."

      -Sabrina Grotefend

      "If you are considering taking this course I highly recommend Evan's teachings.  Through his own personal love and regular practice with incense he is able to share a deep history combined with a heart opening exploration into spirit of self, and spirit of plants with you. Any level of students would benefit greatly from this course!"

      -Dodie Needham -Dodie Needham, Chehalis, WA

      "I knew that burning incense was a sacred time-honored tradition, but not until I took Evan's Listening to Incense home study course did I begin to feel connected at a deeper level.  This class gave me a deeper meaning, connection, and understanding of the sacredness of incense.  It taught me how to connect with the plant's energies on a more meaningful level.  I am so grateful the universe brought Evan and his Listening to Incense class into my awareness.  His deep love and passion for the sacredness of incense shows in his knowledge and teachings.  I highly recommend this course if you are yearning for a deeper connection with aromatic plants and the sacredness of incense."
