Did you know that the power to heal is within you... and all around you in the natural world?

Since the dawn of humanity, people in every corner of the planet have used what was immediately accessible to heal themselves — botanical treatments, healing tinctures, and medicinal remedies from the herbs, flowers, and other flora surrounding them.

To be sure, the advances of modern medicine are amazing... even miraculous. Our ability to treat ailments and cure diseases is an inspiring testament to what we’re capable of.

However, as we’ve pursued the new frontier of science and discovery, we’ve distanced ourselves from the healing power of our environment, and with our deep biological and spiritual connection to nature and plants.

That’s why we’re excited about The Plant Medicine Summit series — a global gathering of leading botanical ecological experts, health practitioners, and inspiring educators who are sharing a unique synthesis of medicine, ecology, and spirituality that promises to transform your relationship with the natural world.

Whether you’re new to herbal remedies, essential oils, and natural medicine, or a professional or clinician working with herbs, plants, energy, or the environment, you’ll discover new practices and insights for making medicinal herbs, flowers, mushrooms, aromatic ceremonial plants, and essential oils your allies in healing and transformation.

The visionary speakers in this series bring to light the curative and evolutionary powers of specific medicinal plants — many of which you can grow in your own garden or neighborhood!

Nature: The Source for Our Wellbeing

Take a moment to consider our own Western story of creation... humans were nourished and healed by a completely sustainable oasis. This garden met all of our needs — physical, emotional, and spiritual. It’s a beautiful and serene vision that’s rooted in our actual history (and myth), where humans evolved in an organic partnership with nature. Living in right relationship with nature was and is imperative, not only for our survival, but for our ability to THRIVE.

Today, we have an opportunity to return to the unerring wisdom of the plant kingdom and deeply integrate it into every aspect of our lives.

Plants are wise and sacred allies. All they require is our curiosity and respect for them to reveal their secrets.

In exchange, they heal and restore our bodies, balance our emotions, revitalize our spirits, and awaken our consciousness to new realities.

They help remove toxins and address addictions, anxiety, and depression — and reconnect us with our life force and purpose on the planet.

In this enlightening summit, you’ll discover that each plant, herb, and flower provides a unique pathway into a more profound relationship with your body, mind, and soul — and, in so doing, each opens up opportunities for greater wellbeing, clarity, and spiritual advancement.

Here’s some of what our brilliant speakers are sharing with you...

K.P. Khalsa answers your most pressing questions about headaches (from tension to migraines) — and offer natural remedies for effective treatment and relief.

Darlene Starr shares herbs you can travel with to help you stay healthy on the road — plus you’ll discover herbs for headaches, nausea, sunburns, and more for your first-aid travel kit.   

Dr. Lewis Mehl-Madrona will reveal the origin stories of sacred plants — from sage to tobacco to bare root and lavender — and describe their practical medicinal uses.

Dr. Trupti Gokani illuminates the ways in which a plant-based diet and spices can be used to sharpen your brain

Lupo Passero reveals the hidden language of plants and how you can communicate with flowers and other herbal allies to receive their healing wisdom.

Nicholas Schnell walks you through specific plants that can transform sadness, grief, and depression — and deepen your connection with Spirit.  

Pam Fischer unlocks the secrets behind plants that can help you de-stress and re-balance your emotions — and shares three healing “treasures” in nature’s pharmacy.  

Dr. Jifunza Wright introduces you to plant medicines used to assist you in self-care.    

Mark Blumenthal pulls back the curtain on the global botanical industry and shares details about what’s being done to protect consumers from adulteration, counterfeiting, and fraud

With his 40 years of professional experience as a clinician, researcher, writer, and educator, David Crow brings a unique perspective and encompassing knowledge to each interview and presentation. He is a masterful interviewer, bringing out the best from each teacher for the benefit of his listeners.

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.

Security

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.

DATA RETENTION

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.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS

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 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.
