The more we know about the endocannabinoid system the more we realize how important it is to the overall health of all our other biological systems – and especially our nervous system. That’s why research is discovering that supplementation of the chemicals in cannabis, called cannabinoids, is a vital support in quelling anxiety, depression, anger, guilt,
I was having a bite at my neighborhood Whole Foods when I glanced up and saw a greeting card carousal smack-dab in front me. It was bursting with flowy affirmations cards. Stuff like: • All you need is faith, trust, and a little bit of pixie dust • Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is
No! Please Don’t Make Me Breathe! Breathing was something I didn’t really want to do for most of my life. Not that I didn’t want to breath to stay alive but it was the breathing that meditation and yoga teachers nudged me to do … focusing on the air going in-and-out of my lungs -

Carsey, my saucy millennial community manager, brought the “New Age Bullshit Generator” to my attention the other day as she knows how worthless I find most approaches are to genuinely making us feel better. The Generator endorses my dismissal of “woo woo” approaches as a blanket failure for making us feel better. "Feel better" as
This capacity to support us in our Inner work is one of the many things I love about the plant's gifts and why I offer cannabis plant medicine in my elevation ceremonies and healing sessions.
