What to Expect

  • ​We begin with an intro discussion and interactive skills workshop (sober).

  • You will then commune with the Cannabis that either you personally brought to the ceremony, or that is shared by other members/participants of our community. Much more on this in the next section below.

  • While we are patiently waiting for the medicine to take hold, we do guided practices to relax the body, quiet the mind, focus our attention, and regulate the breath, so that we may meet our plant ally in an optimal state.

  • Slowly and gently, we tunnel into a magical journey...

  • After, we'll grab some snacks and have a sharemony within a ceremony where we authentically relate with each other through structured sharing. 

  • We close the circle around 10:30, and no later than 11:00. pm You are welcome to hang for a bit, enjoy provided snacks, and get to know fellow journeyers.

About the Cannabis {Santa Maria} and Tea:

In compliance with all Colorado and local consumption laws, Cannabis is not included in your admission to any Highest Light ceremony. We do not sell any Cannabis products containing THC.

Members/participants of the Highest Light community bring both Cannabis-infused oil and dried flower to share in ceremony.   

 

One or more active members oftentimes donate a Cannabis  coconut oil or ghee to share with other participants. But this is never guaranteed as part of your admission. 
 

All Cannabis oil that is donated is made with loving care. The Cannabis is grown organically in living soil without pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides. The flower is infused in organic coconut oil or ghee, creating a full-spectrum oil of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other plant constituents. She is prayed on regularly. 

 

​For ceremony, Highest Light makes a non-psychoactive tea that we then combine with member-donated Cannabis oil (when available). This is a tasty hot chai-like beverage (vegan), inspired by an ancient drink native to India, called a Bhang Thandai. 

 

The tea is infused with spices, botanical extracts (legal and non-psychoactive) that help to even out some of the less desirable effects of Cannabis. The tea ingredients are available upon request.

Each participant is required to bring a minimum of 1 gram of dried Cannabis flower from a local dispensary to share. This must be brought in the original dispensary container with a proper label and an unbroken seal. 

Participants are also encouraged to bring their own simple pipe or vaporizer. We have some extra clean pipes and vapes.

Participants have the option to smoke/vape the flower that they bring, or share in Cannabis-infused tea (if and when available). However, for obvious safety reasons, we do not allow both smoking/vaping AND consumption of Cannabis-infused tea in the same evening. So you will have to choose before we begin. 


As previously stated, Cannabis is not provided as part of your admission to any Highest Light ceremony. Any Cannabis oil is donated by members/participants, so do not count on it being available. Be prepared to smoke/vape what you bring.

notes from journeyers

Lisa.png

"Our facilitator was very clear, organized, and intentional with setting a structure to ensure a safe and healthy journey. He offered us a map. Literally. As the medicine assimilated into our bodies we were guided in a variety of presence practices to be leaned on as a home base to come back to during our personal journey time. I found these very soothing and centering and appreciated the bridge that was created from sobriety into altered consciousness. For the next few hours, I dove into a deep state of awakened embodiment, guided by the most thoughtfully inspired musical playlist, as well as pauses of silence and live singing bowls. I felt safe to embark into the unknown, trusting the space, the practices, and the guide. I feel immense gratitude to the plant medicine for teaching me about myself, and appreciation for the skillful, loving-kindness of our guide.  For anyone curious about a cannabis ceremony, I highly recommend Highest Light as trusted, and heart-centered."
--Lisa Pranam, Lafayette CO

"One thing that was profound about the first experience with Highest Light was the care taken. Mark has an energetic way of making people feel welcome and warm. My experience has been that you enter into a clear guiding intention and process the moment you walk in the door. One of the unique parts about what Mark offers is that he has worked in a training protocol into the journey itself. He provides a scaffolded map of how to navigate the territory of a journey space through experiential practices. All of the techniques create a medicine bag of tools for my journey in a collective method. This method is one of the most valuable aspects that I’ve gotten out of participating in Highest Light journeys. If people are looking to try a plant medicine journey for the first time, I think a Cannabis ceremony is ideal. I think Highest Light is one of those great practitioners. And if you already have a plant medicine practice, and you want to up-level your skills about how you navigate your inner landscape, coming and trying this at least once makes complete sense."

"I have sat in ceremony with Mark as my guide and I had a beautiful, safe, deeply healing experience. He has the highest of integrity and his heart is so pure and loving. I could totally surrender into the safety and divine love he created in our sacred space. I feel so much allowance to be my authentic self in his presence, to say what is in my heart and feel deeply held. His light and unconditional love and presence are transformative!'
-- Ananda Bologna, Atlanta GA

"I participated in one of Mark's cannabis ceremonies and had a wonderful experience!  He created a beautiful, comfortable space where everyone felt emotionally and physically safe during the whole process.  He took time at the beginning to clearly explain how the evening would go and what each of us could do to take care of ourselves and get the most out of our experience.  He also masterfully blended gentle music, mindfulness, and group discussion at the end of the journey, which made the overall experience delightfully holistic and collective. I highly recommend engaging in a ceremony."

"I have had the great pleasure of experiencing several of Mark's sacred cannabis ceremonies. He holds the ceremonial space impeccably and they seem to keep getting better and better. His love for the medicine and his dedication to its reverential use as a transformational tool is clear and present. Mark goes to great lengths to teach the participant clear and practical mindfulness-based tools to utilize during the cannabis journey in order to get the most out of the experience. If you feel the impulse to sign up or even have curiosity about it, I suggest you give it a try. I am very confident you will not be disappointed."
