Ladies Love Mary Jane – 4:20 Thursday, July 18th @Paganfest
A women’s cannabis pipe ritual?! Join Charlene Freedom for Ladies Love Mary Jane on Thursday at 4:20pm to share a cannabis peace pipe ritual. Women have shared cannabis since ancient times, and many women report incredible changes when they begin to work with cannabis as a plant spirit. This ritual endeavors to honor the sacred magic and healing that cannabis offers to women, and provide a safe space for women to “come out of the cannabis closet.” We will be participating in 3 rounds of passing the pipe, called Odes, Bitch, and Boasts. You do not need to imbibe if you don’t wish to, but all are welcome to join in the circle.
