Cannabis and Spirituality: An Explorer's Guide to an Ancient Plant Spirit Ally edited by Stephen Gray.
Excerpt from the back cover:
Truly a medicine for body and soul, one of cannabis's greatest gifts is its remarkable potential for spiritual healing and awakening. In this authoritative guide, editor Stephen Gray and 17 other influential voices of the modern cannabis movement explore the spiritual benefits of cannabis and offer guidance on how to interact with the intelligence of this plant ally, a companion and a supporter of humanity for millennia. Exploring cannabis spirituality in practice, Gray's chapters examine dosage, strains, and methods of intake; the use of cannabis to open creative channels; how to conduct group ceremonies with cannabis; and cautions and contraindications for cannabis use... Revealing the potential of 'the people's plant' to enhance a wide range of spiritual practices - such as meditation, yoga, chanting, visualization, shamanism, spirit work, and explorations with other entheogens- this guide shows how cannabis is an effective ally on the awakening journey, unlocking the receptive energy in all of us and helping us to feel connected to nature, to each other, and to ourselves.
