Discover the Foundations of Incense and the Traditions Behind Modern Aromatherapy


For thousands of years people have been burning incense and experiencing aromatics first-hand in order to understand their healing powers and effects more deeply.

By tuning into the subtle qualities and actions of plants using ancient practices, they were able to uncover the many virtues of aromatics for healing, balance, and longevity for themselves and the people they served.

So, why do so many people look outside of their own personal relationships with the aromatic plants they work with to become more knowledgeable, instead of nourishing their connections to the plants themselves?

Learning about the healing properties of aromatic plants from books or other people is great.

..but you must experience incense and aromatic plants for yourself on deeper levels to truly understand how and why they've been such an effective holistic healing modality and tool for personal transformation for ages.

Once you learn the ancient skill of 'listening to incense and aroma,' you’ll unlock, discover, and nourish your spiritual connection and uncover the wisdom of Full-Spectrum healing with incense and aromatic plants.

Imagine knowing how to integrate the ancient traditions of incense and aroma into the modern world in a way that facilitates transformational healing and spiritual wellbeing for yourself, family, or community.

Incense Smoke is a Golden Thread...

...that weaves all spiritual practices of the Earth together as it is present in nearly every ritual and ceremony. It acts as a gateway for your spiritual transformation and personal evolution when you open yourself more fully to the healing power and teachings of incense.

The experience of incense and aroma in traditional sacred ways is a Profound Key for unlocking the fragrant world of wonder and wisdom, and contributes immensely to your current practice with aromatics, whether you're a beginner or advanced.

"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."

-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."

-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!"
