Together, we invite you to join us for a meditation & cannabis-education workshop! We will cover the basics on cannabis and mindfulness meditation, and the ways in which both of these can intersect to help support our wellness routines.

Guests can expect to be guided through a series of gentle and tender meditation practices, along with open dialogue the focuses on breathwork, ritual, intention-setting, and self-care. You will leave with a few simple tools that you can use to elevate your meditation practice and to integrate cannabis into your health-seeking practices.

The workshop will begin with a brief conversation about neuroplasticity and the science behind mindfulness meditation. You will learn how the therapeutic benefits of cannabis and mindfulness work symbiotically in the body to enhance the effects of each in both the mind and the body, particularly when done with intention.
