JOURNEY GUIDE

If we keep swimming far enough upstream, we will eventually arrive at the source of most of our personal, interpersonal, and collective suffering/challenges on this planet.

That source is consciousness. Much can be said about it, but in summary, it's been neglected and urgently needs some major tlc (and perhaps a little thc ;)

​My lifelong mission is to be a catalyst for personal and planetary healing through the evolution of consciousness (starting with my own), and one of its troublemaker offspring--thought.

 

In this life, I have experienced being a lost, confused, troubled soul with my own unique set of physical, emotional, mental, financial, relational, existential, and other life challenges. 

My unexamined consciousness and thoughts have taken me on quite the ride with many "wrong" turns, making life more challenging than it need be.

It is said that change is the only constant. Challenge may be the other constant. 

 

Trying to correct course and find my way, I have been on an expansive personal journey of physical and emotional healing over the past 30 years--a regular meditator over the last ten years, and a seeker of truth all my life.

I still make mistakes.

And I continue to learn lessons. 

My personal healing work is not done.

 

I remain an imperfect being with many flaws (to use polite language). I do my best to accept and embrace them all while chipping away. Awareness is the first step.

I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set [it] free.

Wholeheartedly committed to the path of awakening, by living life as a ceremony, I am a practitioner of the way of Kriya Yoga as taught by the lineage of Paramahansa Yogananda. 

 

Combined with Kriya Yoga teachings, meditation, and many other sober practices (including shadow work)--the intentional, intelligent, and skillful use of plant medicines like Ayahuasca, Psilocybe Mushrooms, the San Pedro cactus, and Cannabis {Santa Maria}, have been instrumental in my journey of self-discovery and personal evolution, continuously informing and refining my path.

Cannabis is my main plant-ally. In addition to significant direct experience over many years with this sacred plant, I am in my 5th year of openly guiding group and individual journeys.

I have extensively studied the historical and modern spiritual use of Cannabis for inner exploration and healing. I continue to learn and grow--ALWAYS remaining a student.

On the safety end, I have completed intensive psychedelic-harm-reduction certificate programs from Medicinal Mindfulness, located in Boulder, CO.

 

I am passionate about assisting this sacred and ancient plant teacher, through Highest Light--Cannabis {Santa Maria} Living Journeywork Ceremonies--bringing what I believe to be "her" greatest gift to the world. 

In 2016, I started Spread the Hug, a project to reduce fear and intolerance in the world, and encourage a culture of kindness. It hasn't ended. The project has taken a pause and will return shortly, anew. 
 

I have been at work on a new project since 2017. It is called circle and it is my most ambitious project. It's a brand new medium of exchange. It is from deep in my heart and I can feel it coming alive. It is for you. It will be available when the time is ripe--soon.
