CANNABIS is an ancient, natural companion for exploring our inner and outer worlds. Wild landscapes, textures, colors, smells and sounds all come alive, with Cannabis in our bodies.
The way is old and familiar, though few choose to follow this enchanted path. Many have forgotten the way.
We choose to gather, to sit and smoke and watch the long-forgotten path appear before us. We remember our sacred relationship with Cannabis and with the land.
WE BLAZE THE WAY.
Join ecologist and ritualist, Kirra Swenerton, for a guided journey into nature, where we begin with an introduction to the land, grounding meditation and ritual incorporation of Cannabis.
Prepare to AWAKEN the POWER of your WILD SPIRIT!

Q: Do I have to smoke Cannabis to attend? A: No. It's completely up to you. Listen to your body and do what feels right. Some people with respiratory issues prefer vaporizing or edible Cannabis instead of smoking.
Q: How much Cannabis should I take for this journey? A: Each person's sensitivity to Cannabis is different. If you are not a frequent Cannabis user, err on the side of caution and begin with a small amount (especially with edibles).
Q: What kind of Cannabis do you recommend for this journey? A: High-quality, organic, sun-grown Cannabis is ideal. Home-grown or grown by a friend is even better! I recommend balanced indica/sativa hybrid strains (like Blue Dream) for these journeys.

"That is one of the gifts that cannabis offers - to be a muse for those of us who wish to contemplate and understand, or perhaps spend a little time just appreciating the mystery of it all." -Kathleen Harrison, Ethnobotanist

Yes. The event goes until 3:30pm. You can always hike out a little early, but it's better if you can stay for the closing circle. For future events, you can check out my website or sign up for the mailing list (I don't spam). www.rootwisdom.com
