Our first Ganja Goddess Getaway for 2017 set in the beautiful Pescadero, CA.
A video recap of our August 2016 Ganja Goddess Getaway
Photo recap of our first Ganja Goddess Getaway set in Pescadero, CA right along the west coast. We laughed, we smoked, we ate, we supported and enjoyed one another.
About five years ago, when I lived in San Francisco, I went in to renew my Medical Cannabis Recommendation. There was a new doctor at the office and when I talked to him about my primary reason for using cannabis, as an anti-depressant, he said to me “food is mood”. He said that the cleaner, more plant based, alive, fresh, local food I could consume, the less I would have to rely on cannabis alone as an anti-depressant. And you know what, goddesses? He was right. He was totally, 100% right!!
Since that time, I’ve overhauled my diet completely and shifted through lots of different eating styles along the way. But that little mantra “food is mood” has stuck with me through it all and become my standard for what stays, and what goes, in my diet. And the diet of my family, too. Sure, the food has to make you feel great physically – but lots of things can meet that criteria. But how does it make you feel mentally, emotionally, spiritually even?
Eliminating processed foods and shifting to a whole food diet has had as equally a positive effect on my depression as has cannabis. I’ll say that again more clearly – eating whole fruits and vegetables and completely eliminating processed food has been an equally effective anti depressant as cannabis. WOW!!! That’s amazing!!! It shocks me still as I say it now! Food! Real, whole food! It’s as anti-depressing as weed!!! And weed is the BEST antidepressant I’ve ever found. And I’ve looked.
I wanted to share that with you because that is the reason we have so many clean options at the Getaway. It’s so important to me that everyone in the community be served and nourished by what we feed you. I take the responsibility for feeding hungry goddesses who are busy expanding, loving, and creating, very seriously. I want to offer you the best I can. I want everyone to feel as good as they can. Be as happy as possible. I want you to be in the best head space to love yourself. To love each other. To find that goddess within and love her, appreciate her, respect her – worship her. She is the divine. You are the divine. And God is Love. You are Love. Be Love. You are loved by me, and by all of your goddess sisters. March cannot come soon enough!!!
With All the Love in my Heart,
I have had a relationship with the cards for over 30 years, and in all that time nothing like this has ever happened. A few weeks before our Ganja Goddess Getaway, I brought a couple of Tarot decks with me when I went to visit Deidra. The one that I read for her was a deck I had not used often, and I had long since forgotten its name.
Oh! My! Goddess!!! What an epic weekend we had at the inaugural Ganja Goddess Getaway!! Last weekend changed me forever. And for the better in so many ways. The ripples of the open-hearted LOVE shared last weekend are still reverberating in my soul, my family, my home, my community, and in my world. Magic is happening!!
Today, most people have no knowledge of this history — they simply view entheogens either as dangerous “drugs” or as an opportunity for a recreational “high” This is especially true for Cannabis, since eighty years of government prohibition and propaganda have created an intense social stigma around “weed” Yet, of all the entheogens, it is the common Cannabis bud which can provide the most unique state of metacognition and expanded spiritual awareness.
The years passed, and I didn’t encounter cannabis for a long time. But, as state after state has recognized the medicinal bounty within this simple, gorgeous plant, I have found myself eagerly following along, hoping for everyone to have access to its healing properties, and wondering if I would need it someday.
That’s my big question! How do you ladies partake in cannabis? Do you prefer to smoke, dab, vape, eat, or drink your medicine?! Here at GGG headquarters I asked some of our resident goddesses their favorite methods of ingestion – here are their preferences.
So, one of the options for your overnight stay at the Ganja Goddess Getaway is “Glamping”. Some of you may be asking yourself, what the heck is glamping, anyway?? Well, it’s Glamour + Camping = Glamping! It takes away some of the work of camping – there’s no tent for you to pitch, no fire you need to build, no food to pack, etc. There is also real running water – which means real bathrooms and hot showers! Plus, at the Ganja Goddess Getaway there is organic, catered, real whole food meals and snacks!
Glamping at the Ganja Goddess Getaway also means that you do get to stay in a tent with your 100 new besties AND commune with nature like if you were regular camping. It’s truly the best of both worlds!!! You’ll be glamping adjacent to the main lodge, next to the outdoor showers, hot tub and pool!! It’s also near the trail to the creek. It really is going to be an unforgettable experience in such a beautiful place!!
Plus, the “Glamping” ticket at the Ganja Goddess Getaway is our best value! And who doesn’t love a value?! Did I mention the killer swag bag included with the Glamping ticket?!?! It’s amazing!! It’s chock full of $250 worth of cannabis, edibles and all kinds of amazing cannabis products for women that you maybe have never even tried before! The swag bag alone is worth coming for!
Now that you know how little effort is required to come glamping with us, you may wonder, “well – what do I need to bring to go glamping at the Ganja Goddess Getaway?!” Simple! Your overnight bag plus a sleeping bag and pillow! Just like an old school slumber party! Okay, so maybe you want to bring extra snacks – just like an old school slumber party! Here are some additional optional items you may also want to consider bringing: your swimsuit, sunscreen, your rolling papers, a sleeping pad, flip flops, a water bottle.
With the Getaway fast approaching, we’re in full gear with all the prep to make this retreat is a once in a lifetime event!! We’re working to make sure that every detail is perfect so that you feel like a Ganja Goddess from the moment you arrive until the moment we say goodbye! It’s gonna be really special! We can’t wait!!
I find that cannabis helps me connect to the divine within myself – the part of me that’s connected to you, and to all people, all animals, plants, and life on this planet, and perhaps the universe.
There is a lot of stigma for being a marijuana mom. But, I’m grateful to have access to a medicine that helps me show up and be present with my kiddos when my body can’t do it alone. Sometimes our bodies need help getting back into balance and healing from the pain and disease that we face in our lives. Cannabis is a gentle way for me to do that.
I want women’s hearts to be lighter and their focus to be sharper. I want women to be able to give love and receive love. I want women to feel important and adored and appreciated. Women carry the weight and responsibility of caregiving, nurturing, and motherhood but how often do we offer these precious gifts to ourselves and to each other?
