You will learn:

✔ To Identify why scent has always played an important role in spiritual practices. List six pathways by which scent elicits & enhances spirituality. Explore the therapeutic benefits of biophilia.

✔ To Explore the physiological effects of awe. Explain how scent elicits a sacred space. Describe the relationship between sacred space and healing.

✔ To Define the role of rituals in healing. Explore the role of myths in defining the subtle properties of essential oils. Examine the role of neurotheology in exploring the relationship between scent and wellbeing.

The six key factors:

  • biophilia
  • awe
  • sacred space
  • rituals
  • myths
  • neurobiology

We investigate the science and research underpinning these factors and learn how understanding these factors not only help us gain more spiritual clarity, but provide us with a better understanding of the therapeutic role of essential oils. We conclude by exploring how the new science of neurotheology can help us understand essential oils within a spiritual context. Neurotheology integrates anthropology, cognitive neuroscience, neurology, psychology, and sociology on one hand, as well as beliefs, myths, religion, rituals, spiritual practices, spirituality and theology.
