Tulsi has been revered and respected in India for millenia. Urban and rural homes have Tulsi growing in courtyards and placed by their spiritual altars, due to the calming effects on the mind, rejuvenating effects on the body and anti-microbial qualities that cleanse the environment. Today, studies have proven that Tulsi can improve dental health, normalize blood pressure, improve cognitive function and boost immunity. Explore how you can enjoy these and other benefits. Learn transformative Tulsi recipes and remedies through this course, as you discover what makes this gift from Mother Nature so remarkable.

Born in a family of healers that lived by Ayurvedic principles and taught by her grandfather who was a renowned Vaidya (Ayurveda healer), Acharya Shunya has a lifetime of experience, further strengthened by her practice and teaching. Her spiritual lineage and knowledge of the sister sciences of Vedanta and Yoga, provide additional value, leaving you with an integrated view of how to live a well balanced, healthy, happy life.

Acharya Shunya’s authentic style, sharing of captivating stories, and systematic approach, allows for the knowledge to be easily learned and incorporated into your life. Moreover, the class is taught in an intimate and unique immersive style from an ancient tradition called gurukulum, which evokes an immediate heartfelt connection with the Tulsi plant.

A class loved by all:

I've been feeling stressed, due to life transitions specifically with regard to career changes, family responsibilities and aging. As a result, my mind has been feeling scattered and overwhelmed. Even meditation seems unfruitful. Watching the Tulsi video was transformative. Building a deep relationship with Tulsi ji and understanding more about the healing properties was informative. So...I tried making Tulsi tea- I started by asking the leaves to aid in opening my mind and giving me clarity Sipping the tea and making a ritual for myself (for 7 days) - has not only aided my mind, but also energized me, improved my digestion and supported my meditation as well. Truly grateful - thanks Tulsi ji! - Gautam

I didn’t know anything about Tulsi before taking this class. It was sweet to hear Acharya Shunya call it Tulsi ji, and that the soil it is planted in becomes holy, where the roots lie. Tulsi gives Life; taken on a regular basis, it helps to protect us. I have made the cough syrup recipe twice and it is very soothing on the throat. It was a beautiful class. - Sakshi
