The human body is designed to be in a relationship with plants. Our digestive tract is designed to consume plants. Our physiology is designed to combust the energy of the sun by extracting it from plants. Our primary biological relationship is with plants.
— David Crow

The natural world holds a multitude of secrets for healing the body, mind, spirit, and planet.

Would you like to develop the power to more easily care for yourself, while remaining in spiritual communion with the natural world around you?

With the proper guides leading you through the latest botanical medicine discoveries, you can apply this wisdom for immune repair, neural and cognitive support, and spiritual enlightenment.

Would you like to benefit from up-to-date research on how plant allies can help you navigate specific present and future challenges?

We’re living in a pivotal time for deepening our approaches to wellness and healing. Traditional wisdom on how our plant allies help our bodily systems is being supported by scientific evidence of how botanical medicines work. Established botanical medicine experts have energized a new generation of healers and educators who are eager to help people integrate clinical practices with individual self-care routines.

Plant medicine has been shaped by ancient traditions from around the world — and our ancestors' antidotes are influencing the future of how we can treat and heal diseases, digestive problems, anxiety, depression, and even approach pandemics. What we’ve learned about botanical rituals and remedies from Mayan, Ayurvedic, and Tibetan healers, for example, gives us a roadmap for preventing and managing future ailments.

We’re excited to present The Future of Plant Medicine Summit series at a time of global awakening to the importance of holistic approaches to disease, emotional distress, and planetary healing. This esteemed collection of Ayurvedic and integrative medical doctors and pharmacists, herbalists, researchers, educators, and healers are shaping the future of herbal medicine.

You’ll be receiving support not only from revered Shift Network faculty, but also from the next generation of visionaries in the plant medicine movement, all of whom can help you understand the practicalities of creating an individualized botanical medicine treatment plan.

Over the course of an enlightening week featuring the very latest in plant medicine research, you’ll deepen your understanding of the role of specific herbs in common health concerns — such as herbs used in Ayurveda for every stage of life, nervine tonic herbs for protection against stress, and herbs for managing headaches naturally, among other valuable applications. Plus, you’ll gain the framework for how to speak with your medical doctors about herbal medicines, and for implementing your own self-care practices for these challenging times.

You’ll have access to a level of spiritual healing unavailable with allopathic medicine. You’ll explore myriad rituals, passed down through generations, that connect you to your plant allies through a deep journey of the soul and the subconscious.


Nurture the Roots of Resilience in Your Kitchen or Garden

When we map the supportive elements of our plant allies to specific bodily systems, we can realign our internal networks and discover emotional freedom. We have an opportunity to heal with our planet while reinvigorating our physical and spiritual immune systems.

As we search for treatment plans that support us through aging, the pandemic, and individual imbalances, a connection to the wonders of the botanical world can ground us, support us, and strengthen our reserves.

And, as the speakers in The Future of Planet Medicine Summit series offer world-class expertise on a range of critical topics, you’ll have access to their support — and the support of a global plant medicine community — through the chat box feature. Ask your pressing questions live, and receive guidance from leaders in the herbal medicine movement.

Here’s some of what some of our celebrated speakers will be sharing with you…

Learn how grief and fear are treated within Mayan medicine with Rosita Arvigo, founder of the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®.

Understand how specific herbs and herbal formulas can relieve certain types of pain with herbalist and ethnobotanist David Winston.

The Future of Plant Medicine Summit series is a unique opportunity to understand how to best care for yourself — by treating your headaches, soothing your vagus nerve, activating your higher spiritual potential, and a myriad of other applications. It’s also, by extension, a map for how to care for your support system — by building resilient garden apothecaries and merging patient-centered care with herbalism.

  • How global spice markets can transform the future of healthcare by offering powering therapeutics for some of the most difficult illnesses
  • How to maintain and protect garden apothecaries given current weather extremes
  • The art of preparing fresh pine needles, twigs, and bark for a daily tea that provides a plethora of vitamins — C, A, K, and B, plus other essential nutrients
  • Powerful spiritual herbs and plants that have been used for millennia to activate higher awareness, intuitive abilities, and deep healing
  • Plant medicine from the Ayurvedic and Western pharmacopeia that supports releasing nervous system patterns, increasing resiliency, and tonifying the vagus nerve
  • The significant environmental benefits and high-quality vibrant medicines generated by self-sufficient herbalism
  • The future of healing through herbs and astrology, including medical research supporting astrological considerations
  • The roots of herbal energetics and how they have been represented in Western herbal traditions
  • How to adapt the trauma-informed, patient-centered care model to an herbalist's practice
  • And much more!

In this timely and salient series, you’ll learn from more than three dozen respected botanical medicine experts all in one place — and discover the most comprehensive, up-to-date expert support for naturally dealing with pressing personal and environmental challenges.

Plus, you’ll discover that working with medicinal plants can complement any existing practice and help you achieve greater fulfillment and success in life — for you and your clients.

You’ll be in good hands with our co-hosts, who represent the dynamic present and future of plant medicine:

  • David Crow, LAc, herbal pioneer who integrates insights and practices from diverse botanical medicine and spiritual traditions, ranging from Ayurveda to Chinese medicine to Buddhism
  • Adriana Ayales, herbalist, writer, and founder of Anima Mundi Herbals
  • Kelsey Barrett, herbalist, writer, and co-director of Scarlet Sage School of Traditional Healing Arts

Here’s what participants had to say about previous years’ plant medicine summits…

“Always a wealth of information, excellent presentations across a wide array of subjects, super learning experience.”
Always a wealth of information, excellent presentations across a wide array of subjects, super learning experience. This is my third [summit] that I have attended and there’s always something new to learn. This year was especially challenging with the pandemic — such great information on techniques, herbs, and things we can do to help ourselves and others navigate through this awful virus and the aftermath.
— Denise Flinchbaugh, Elizabeth, Colorado

“My first time at this summit, I really enjoyed learning from these huge masters.”
My first time at this summit, I really enjoyed learning from these huge masters. The choice of topics and speakers was outstanding; the information very clear and accessible.
— Silvina, Córdoba, Argentina

“I thought I would learn about the use of herbs but what I got is something much more meaningful than that.”
I'm so grateful for all the effort in putting this together. I got so much out of the summit. I love the holistic approach overall. I thought I would learn about the use of herbs but what I got is something much more meaningful than that. Thank you for helping me to strengthen my connection with nature.
— Astrid Mendez, Australia

“A terrific learning opportunity!”
A terrific learning opportunity! Given the impressive lineup of speakers and their respective areas of expertise, this event provides a chance to hear from teachers, practitioners, specialists, physicians, researchers… who have hundreds of years of combined experience.
— L. Stewart

— Colleen Desimone

I'm very grateful for all the generous sharing! As I listen to your talks, I can feel your love and respect for plants and you convey a wealth of practical, useful, and inspiring information. I learned a lot about healing with plants on all levels of my being. Kudos and profound thanks!
— Swann, Puerto Rico

“Thank you for valuable support to our vital physical-spiritual immune systems during these very vulnerable times of COVID-19 and beyond.”
I have training in plant medicine, so I was deeply impressed with the speakers’ backgrounds and clinical practices. I also gained NEW needed insights and information for key powerful herbs and preparations that make it easier and more affordable to integrate familiar favorites — plus new “plant friends and allies” into our daily routine. Thank you for valuable support to our vital physical-spiritual immune systems during these very vulnerable times of COVID-19 and beyond.
— Geri, Mendocino, California

“I am thrilled with what I have learned and can't wait to start putting [it] into use.”
This program was beautifully curated, as was each class. There was a broad range of information and herbs for both strengthening the immune system as well as specific herbs for specific health concerns and even for different types of stress and fatigue. I am thrilled with what I have learned and can't wait to start putting [it] into use.
— Michele van Kooijk, Miami, Florida

“The different perspectives and clinical experiences of the presenters made for a rich, practical learning experience.”
The range and depth of the sessions was excellent. The different perspectives and clinical experiences of the presenters made for a rich, practical learning experience. I have already put into practice several herbal remedies for myself and members of my family.
— Ann Snook Bacalar, Quintana Roo, Mexico

“... being able to see/listen to these amazing presenters helped lift my brain fog and my spirits!”
The wealth of plant knowledge that was shared here is just unbelievable! I’m so grateful this was offered for free. I can’t sing enough praises for the organizers and presenters! Thank you so much! I live in an area where our power and internet goes out a lot, and the 48-hour free video/audio was an amazing blessing! We have been stuck away from everything for months and being able to see/listen to these amazing presenters helped lift my brain fog and my spirits! I have been very unmotivated to do much of anything, and now I am happily motivated to get back into my plants and my herbal shaman work. I can’t thank you all enough!
— Tara Veraguas, Panama

Disclosure of Your Information to Third Parties

  • Disclosure By Law. You acknowledge and agree that we may disclose information you provide if required to do so by law, at the request of a third party, or if we, in our sole discretion, believe that disclosure is reasonable to comply with the law, requests or orders from law enforcement or any legal process, protect or defend our rights or property, or protect someone’s health or safety.
  • Disclosure to Trusted Third Parties By Us. We may share your non-PII with third parties, but not in a manner that would reveal your identity. We may share your PII, sometimes in conjunction with your non-PII with service providers that may be associated with us to perform functions on our behalf. For example, outsourced customer care agents or technology assistants may need access to your information to perform services for you. Your information will be treated as private and confidential by such service providers and not used for any other purpose than we authorize. In addition, from time to time, we may share PII (such as email or mailing address) about our user base with carefully selected third parties, so they can offer goods and services that we believe may be of interest to our users. If you do not wish to receive offers from our trusted partners, you can change your email preferences at any time by following the steps outlined in the “Choice/Opt-Out” section below.
  • Disclosure to Trusted Third Parties at Your Request. When purchasing products or services or while visiting our websites, we may provide you with advertisements, promotions, sweepstakes and offers from third party providers. If you choose to accept any such offers, you may either (depending on the situation) directly provide your information in connection with the offer to such third party provider, or we will provide your information, including billing information, to the third party provider by pre-populating the offer registration forms. Your information will not be transferred until you actually accept the offer. You may opt-out of the offer at any time up until this point. Please refer to the third party provider’s own privacy policy (provided on the offer pages) if you have any questions regarding how your information is used by such providers. Please be aware that these offers may be presented on pages framed by our website. We do this to provide a seamless experience. Although these offer pages have the look and feel of our websites, you will be submitting your information directly to the third-party advertiser. You agree that we will not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings, including the sharing of the information you supply to us with third party providers described here, or as the result of the presence of such providers on our website.
  • Information Transferred As a Result of Sale of Business. As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets and, depending on the transaction, your PII may be one of the transferred assets. In the event that we are acquired by another company, your PII may be part of the assets transferred to the acquiring party. If this occurs, you will be notified if there are any material changes to the way your PII is collected or used.

We require all third parties to whom we transfer your data to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We only allow such third parties to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

Third-Party Advertising

We may partner with third-party advertising agencies or other service providers to serve ads on our website on behalf of The Shift Network or third-party advertisers (e.g., retailers of goods or services). These companies may employ cookies and web beacons to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and web beacons is completely anonymous. Some of these third-party advertising agencies may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative, which offers you the option to opt out of ad targeting from its member agencies by following the procedures listed here.

We will only share your information with third parties in the ways defined in this privacy statement.

Age Restrictions

Our age restrictions for different services are set forth in each website’s applicable Terms and Conditions of Service. We do not target any of our sites or services to children under the age of 13, and in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, any information we may receive from users we believe to be under the age of 13 will be purged from our database.


We have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of information stored in our databases. These measures include use of Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and/or strong encryption (3DES) technology during credit card transactions and administrator sessions, as well as other security measures which are applied to all data at rest and in transit. We will exercise reasonable care in providing for the secure transmission of information between your computer and our servers, but we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us over the Internet and accept no liability for any unintentional disclosure.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.


We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

By law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for seven years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see below for further information.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.


Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws to include but not limited to privacy laws in the United States and General Data Protection Regulation in the European Union in relation to your personal data. These include the right to:

  • Request access to your personal data.
  • Request correction of your personal data.
  • Request erasure of your personal data.
  • Object to processing of your personal data.
  • Request restriction of processing your personal data.
  • Request transfer of your personal data.
  • Right to withdraw consent.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please email us at support@theshiftnetwork.com.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
