About the event
Join us on Saturday, September 23rd, from 3-6 PM at Sarai Yoga in Fort Green, Brooklyn.
This 3-hour event will begin with a brief intention-setting circle where we consume low-dose cannabis edibles together. We’ll talk about the purpose of yoga and how we can use plant medicine to support our goals. We’ll practice three branches of traditional yoga together: asana (postures), pranayama (breathing), and meditation. We’ll build awareness of body, breath and mind so we can understand ourselves on levels beneath the ego.
After that, the practices themselves will evolve from these traditional starting points to embody the creative, playful spirit of the cannabis medicine!
If you are new to yoga, it will be a joyful introduction to yogic practices you can bring to your everyday life. If you have a seasoned yoga practice, you will find it rejuvenated, as if you’d encountered it as a child. If you’re relatively new to cannabis, you’ll discover its nature as an “upaya,” a helpful tool on the yogic path. If you consume it regularly, you may feel renewed appreciation for its profound synergy with our human experience, and may even transform your relationship with the plant.
In addition to practicing and playing with body, breath, and mind, we’ll hold a tea ceremony and perform “social meditation” together. This form of meditation – relaxed, funny, inspiring and communal – is perfectly suited to the cannabis state. We can build awareness, the capacity to cultivate positive qualities and let go of negative ones, while having fun and expressing ourselves creatively in community!
Finally, there will be a feast of healthy munchies!
