"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."

"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."

-Jen Davis, Seattle, WA

"I thoroughly enjoyed the Listening to Incense Course. I appreciated being introduced to new plant resins and scents each week; all which were included in the overall costs of the course.  I loved the work at your own pace aspect. I never felt rushed.
