CANNABIS & SPIRITUALITY: A Book Launch and Celebration with Stephen Gray & Friends
"Herb is the healing of the nation." - Bob Marley
You are invited to a Celebration! Cannabis has had a huge explosion of conciousness in the last few years and it's time to celebrate and honour the reunion of our Ancient Friend and Spiritual Ally, CANNABIS! Please come celebrate the rise and forward movement of Cannabis with us!
With the help of some very special Cannabis Warriors, we will be offering everyone a celebratory night of Cannabis! We will be honouring our ancient friendship with Cannabis! To do this, we have planned a night of Laughter, Food, Ganja, Divine Music, Drumming, Medicine songs, OM-ing, Yoga Movement and DANCE!!
Stephen Gray is launching his new book, Cannabis and Spirituality: An Explorer's Guide to an Ancient Spiritual Ally. In this book, Stephen Gray and 17 influential voices of the modern Cannabis movement reveal the potential of “the people’s plant” to enhance a wide range of spiritual practices such as Meditation, Yoga, and Art.
We have an AMAZING event/evening planned with AMAZING guests and attendees!
7:30 - Arrival, sage smudging of guests, live shamanic/meditative music. Welcoming and MC done by Salimeh Tabrizi.

In honour of the Spirit Of Cannabis, this event is being visualized as a way to bring people together! To do this, we will have a designated networking area set up in one section of the ceremony space. This area will have tables open to anybody wanting to bring their business cards, flyers or art and share it with the community! This area will also be where people can share and sell their art and crafts! If you feel like it, please bring your cash with you as there will be opportunities to buy one of a kind Cannabis items at this special event!
If you would like to sell at the event, please contact Celina at email@example.com and let her know what you would like to contribute to the celebration. If we feel that it's a fit, we will arrange space for you to display yourself to the Tribe :)
Please make an effort to join us for the beginning of the evening’s events. As well as a celebratory launch party, we also intend to treat this special evening as a kind of "ceremony-lite” as we do with the Spirit Plant Medicine Conference. Northwest tribal people’s representative Gyauustees will open the evening with one of his powerful welcoming and blessing songs. We hope you can all be there to share that with us at the beginning of the night!
