Sacred Cannabis {Santa Maria} Ceremony
For more info, see https://highestlight.love

Ticket sales end Thurs 2/7 @ 5pm

Cannabis {Santa Maria} has been used ceremonially in almost every major religion, and its spiritual use predates ALL religious traditions.

Join Mark as he guides you into developing a deeper connection with yourself, and this sacred and often misunderstood ancient plant teacher.

Highest Light ceremonies are not about getting high for recreational purposes (not that there is anything wrong with that!). This is a deeply immersive experience in a safe and sacred space, using intention, awareness, breath, mind and body to journey within, and explore the depths of your own being. Having said that, ceremonies are usually highly enjoyable.

These are inclusive ceremonies, and welcome all peaceful beliefs. While we hold a sacred ceremonial container, and work with core shamanic practices that are common to plant-medicine work, we do not look to promote or dislodge any particular religious/spiritual beliefs.



SAT FEB 9TH from 6:00pm to Midnight

***Doors open at 5:20. We start promptly at 6pm. DOORS CLOSE to late arrivals. Please come at least 15 min early to check in and get situated.


Your Entry Includes:

-Light healthy vegan-friendly soup and tea starting at 5:30
-Delicious snacks and beverages at the end of the night to satisfy your munchies.


So Who Is This Ceremony For?

-If you are interested in self discovery and personal growth, and simply curious about how the intentional use of this ancient plant teacher may assist you on your journey, then this ceremony may be for you. Benefits listed below under "What May Happen in Ceremony".

-Anyone who has a tendency to get anxious, overly self conscious, or have a lot of negative fear-based thoughts when using Cannabis, AND would like to explore and transcend those thoughts and emotions in a safe setting with proper guidance.

-Experienced users that would like to explore the use of Santa Maria in a new way beyond medical or recreational use.

-Total newbies that have never ingested Santa Maria before but are interested in trying. This ceremony would be a great space for your first time--safe and supportive.

-Anyone who would like to heal a strained relationship with Santa Maria due to overuse, abuse or negative attitudes, by communing with her in a safe sacred space, along with the proper tools and guidance.

-Anyone interested in exploring other entheogenic plant substances (where they are legal), such as Ayahuasca, San Pedro or Peyote. Highest Light ceremonies provide a foundation and skill set that help to prepare participants for work with other potent plant medicines and substances.


What May Happen in Ceremony?

-You may learn about yourself in a new and different way. Illuminate blind spots in your life that may be preventing you from living to your fullest.

-Get unstuck! Shift energetic patterns, and gain creative insight to help propel you forward on your life path.

-Heal past trauma. Release stored emotions and energetic blockages through somatic (body) practices.

-Develop a useful skill set of awareness and cognitive tools that may be helpful to navigate the ups and downs of daily life.

-Temporarily elevate your state of consciousness--touch the transcendent and mystical.

-Dream into your reality. Bridge the inner world of mind and imagination with the outer world of creation and physical manifestation.

Enjoy an enchanting evening of ceremony and connection with fellow journeyers.


What to Expect

-Light healthy vegan-friendly soup and tea starting at 5:30 for early birds.

-We start with an intro discussion and interactive skills workshop (sober).

-We then commune with Santa Maria by consuming medicine made for specifically for ceremony. No smoking or vaping. The medicine is currently being donated by a member of our community. 

-While we are patiently waiting for the medicine to take hold, we do about 45 minutes of guided meditative practices to relax the body, quiet the mind, and regulate the breath, so that we may meet Santa Maria in a more optimal state.  

-Slowly and gently, we tunnel into 2.5-ish hours of self-guided journeywork with select music and sound to support your experience.

-After our journey, 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 midnight. You are welcome to hang for a bit, enjoy provided snacks, and get to know fellow journeyers.


About the Cannabis {Santa Maria} that we use:

The Santa Maria is grown with love at high altitude, outdoors, in pristine Nederland CO in living soil without pesticides or herbicides. Multiple strains of flower are then combined, and an extract is created using 190 proof alcohol to create a full spectrum extract of terpenes, cannabinoids and other plant constituents. Virtually no alcohol remains. The Santa Maria is combined with pure organic coconut oil. She is prayed on regularly.

For ceremony, we make a tea with the sacrament. This is a tasty hot chai-like beverage (vegan), inspired by an ancient Cannabis-infused drink, native to India, called Bhang.

About Mark

If we keep swimming far enough upstream, we will eventually arrive at the source of most of our collective challenges on this planet. That source is consciousness. Much can be said about it, but in summary, its been neglected and needs some tlc.

My lifelong passion is to be a catalyst for personal and planetary healing through the evolution of individual consciousness, and its troublemaker offspring--thought.

I have been on an expansive personal journey of physical and emotional healing for the last 30 years; a regular meditator over the past 10, and a seeker of truth all my life.

I am a student and practitioner of Kriya Yoga as taught by Paramahansa Yogananda. I have been initiated by his last-living direct disciple, Roy Eugene Davis. Currently, I am involved in a two-year intensive apprenticeship, receiving direct teachings from his student, Ryan Kurczak.      

Combined with Kriya Yoga meditation and many other sober practices, the respectful, intentional, intelligent, and infrequent use of plant medicines, like Ayahuasca, Mushrooms, San Pedro, and Santa Maria, have been instrumental in my journey of self-discovery and personal evolution, continuously informing and refining my path.

In 2016, I started Spread the Hug, a project to reduce fear and intolerance in the world, and encourage a culture of kindness.

I am excited to bring Highest Light -- Cannabis {Santa Maria} Living Journeywork Ceremonies to Colorado. I am a passionate student of the historical and modern use of Santa Maria for intentional purposes. I moved to the Boulder area this past summer to legally assist this sacred plant teacher in bringing what I believe to be her greatest gift to this world. It may also be my greatest gift.
