Join us on a transformative journey of healing and deep relaxation as we blend the wellness qualities of cannabis and CBD with Sacred Sound!
If you use cannabis, have considered using it, or just want to learn more about its health benefits, this event is for you! Scientific research now shows there are myriad health benefits of cannabis and CBD (cannabidiol). CBD is a component of cannabis that does not produce intoxicating effects that get the user “high”. According to ProjectCBD.org, many people are seeking alternatives to pharmaceuticals with harsh side effects – medicine more in synch with natural processes. By tapping into how we function biologically on a deep level, CBD can provide relief for chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, depression and many other conditions.
Gongs are precision sound healing instruments that acoustically elevate us, creating a deep, spontaneous meditative state that restores harmony and vitality to the mind, body and soul.
Benefits of cannabis and CBD:
Extensive scientific research – much of it sponsored by the U.S. government – and mounting anecdotal accounts from patients and physicians highlight the potential of cannabis and CBD as a treatment for a wide range of maladies, including (but not limited to):
Autoimmune diseases (inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis)
Neurological conditions (Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, Huntington’s chorea, stroke, traumatic brain injury)
Metabolic syndrome (diabetes, obesity)
Neuropsychiatric illness (autism, ADHD, PTSD, alcoholism)
Gut disorders (colitis, Crohn’s)
Cardiovascular dysfunction (atherosclerosis, arrhythmia)
Skin disease (acne, dermatitis, psoriasis)

Event Description: The 90-minute event includes an 11 Planet Gong - 62-minute Gong Bath Meditation, followed by sweets and community. Before the Gong Bath, we’ll have a brief discussion on the healing attributes of the gong, and we’ll hear from Brianna Newton, cannabis expert from Hashtag Cannabis, on the wellness benefits of cannabis and CBD – what it is, how to use it, and why it works. There will be a short 5-minute intermission between the presentation and the Gong Bath.
