What we're about

Throughout history and many cultures cannabis has and is used as a Spiritual and Psychedelic ally. This is a learned practice where I use set and setting as an aid in developing the skills needed to reach a higher spiritual state. Set is done through ceremony for example and setting might be a meditation center. Once learned though, it can be used to enrich ordinary living whenever one chooses to do so.

In this meetup we will balance learning with experiences that will take us into a non-ordinary state while existing in the ordinary. That is the benefit of cannabis. You can function quite normally and beautifully while your mind and body might exist in a different plain.

I will create 3 different levels of activities. Level I is discussion only. Many of you might be new to this so it will be designed to answer your questions in person. Level II is discussion followed by a guided experience. Level III will be an experience. There will be little discussion but I'm willing to answer questions at appropriate times and help you get into your experience. Since everyone comes with a different set of experiences feel free to join any Level that interests you.

I am also writing about this topic so please visit the discussion groups.

The spiritual aspect is a positive use of cannabis that offsets the negative dialogue trying to make cannabis illegal once again everywhere. If more people understood the power of "one" or a feeling of universal connection and actually experienced it for themselves, the better the world would be.

I teach using tools such as walking meditation, qi gong, music and ecstatic movement. One enters an altered state called STER which is the powerful energy of Selflessness, Timelessness, Effortless and Richness where deep insights and strong positive feelings occur regularly.

The meetup is inspired by the incredibly informative book: Cannabis and Spirituality: An Explorer’s Guide to an Ancient Plant Spirit Ally by Stephen Gray and includes chapters by 18 authoritative and influential voices of the modern cannabis movement, including Kathleen Harrison, Joan Bello, Hamilton Souther, Steven Hager, Chris Bennett, Dee Dussault, Jeremy Wolff, and Roger Christie.

The Most Fun you can Possibly Have!

Needs a location

Yes. You will discover how to have the most fun you could possible have. And then you can invite others to join you in the fun once you learn how to do it. To learn this is not a one off event so I have set up a school with 2 to 3 events a week that you many choose from. The school will commence the beginning of April. Our events each offer a wide variety of pathways including my own technique which includes cannabis, meditation, music, movement and tantric energy. We borrow from other spiritual masters as you never know which path is going to get you beyond this dimensional threshold. If you like to be considered for entry into this school and teachings please sign up and text me at[masked]. I will set up a 20 minute interview. Namaste, EJ Shiang
