It is not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it.
This immersive meditation experience is cannabis based and here’s why.
Plant medicine has been shown to be neuro regenerative to the hippocampus and to have anti anxiety and anti depressant type effects.
Because stress and trauma trigger the hippocampus to start the flight or fight response, healing the hippocampus and creating new neural pathways helps us see stress and traumatic experiences in a new way.
This creates a new pathway in the brain.
When the same messages of trauma and stress continue to roll through the nervous system, you stay stuck in the same patterns. In order to shift that pattern you have to create new neural pathways.
And to create a new pathway, you have to
Become aware of what isn’t serving you anymore
Rewire the brain and nervous system to see the old story in a different light
Acknowledge the new way of being in your mind and body through different choices, actions and responses.
But here’s the thing - most people can’t sit in meditation for more than a few seconds. In fact, the average person has an attention span less than that of a goldfish. And most people don’t really feel their body, so if you can’t quiet your mind or feel your body, how do you heal trauma?
Your endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a vast signaling network of CB receptors interconnected throughout the body's organs, glands, and tissue. It's the body's master switch.
The ECS modulates and regulates nearly all physiological and cognitive processes including the immune system, nervous system, detoxification pathways and many more.
A high- functioning ECS stabilizes homeostasis and promotes optimal total-body balance. It also:
Promotes greater focus
Stimulates mental clarity & productivity/cognitive function
Frees the mind from brain fog
Helps mitigate everyday stress & worry
Supports quality sleep cycles
Helps relieve physical discomfort

We begin each journey by creating sacred space together as a community. I'll share some guidelines on how to approach this experience in a mindful and intentional way.
Then we’ll practice a sacred imbibing ceremony and I’ll begin a guided relaxation. After this you’ll be invited to journey with music curated for it’s evocative qualities.
We imbibe as a group and then guide you through a body scan relaxation. After this we invite you to lie down and journey with our curated evocative music set. I am there with you for the entire experience. I’ll bring you back into the room, integrate, ground, process. Light snacks are provided and I’ll make sure everyone is fully present before leaving.
Plant medicine is a potent plant ally that both supports our journey of healing and in regaining ancient relationship with primal spirituality through plants as allies.
The advantages to using plant medicine are three fold:
1) It’s legal.
2) plant medicine supports the person to have free will to dive as deep as they are ready to. Many other plant medicines determine the path of healing: plant medicine allows you to create an intention and co-create the experience.
3) the journey can be modulated by imbibing the correct ratio of medicine, thus allowing you to journey for the afternoon or evening, integrate and then step back into the flow of life.
In keeping with Colorado law, Highly Conscious Meditations that are in person are offered by invitation only. When attending in person, you must be over 21. You must arrange for transportation after the journey.
Breathwork builds a bridge between the conscious and the subconscious, releasing stress, memories and beliefs by saturating the body with life force energy. It creates the feeling of being powerful, present, charismatic, alive, and delighted. Motivation and clarity are high with the power to move forward, and the ability to catalyze, create, and manifest more radiance and power.
Through the breath we are releasing reactive tendencies by pumping more life force energy to all parts of the body and connecting the left and right hemispheres of the brain. It’s been said that if we changed nothing but our breathing (not our eating , exercise or habits) we would radically change our life.
Breathwork teaches the fundamentals for achieving freedom and catalyzes a leap in consciousness and authenticity. Backed by years of scientific research, breathwork is the most potent and drug-free solution to wake you up. It does this by allowing you to access non-ordinary states of consciousness, clearing deeply ingrained patterns of struggle and chaos and putting you in touch with your deepest intuition.
