Meditation 101: Practices, Postures, and Everything In Between

Meditation 101: Practices, Postures, and Pretty Much Everything In Between April 28, 2018 “I am incapable of meditating,” admitted a friend of mine just the other day. “It ends up being just me silently agonizing over my to-do list.” I totally get it; meditation is difficult. It’s definitely not a practice you’ll excel at right away. Just like you can’t pick up a golf club for the first time and expect to make it to the Masters Tournament next year and get that green jacket. Okay, maybe that’s exaggerating, but you get the picture. The art of meditation can take years to learn, and you may never achieve perfect bliss, but it’s all about the practice. And just like golf may not be your sport, certain styles of meditation may not...


Cannabis and Spirituality: A Smoking Exercise!

Everyone explores Consciousness and Reality in their own way. For those who like to use Cannabis to expand their consciousness, this is an article you will probably find interesting. If you’re a usual smoker, then I’m sure you probably already know that Cannabis works by intention. You need to consciously decide what effect you want it to have before you smoke, otherwise your subconscious will choose for you. If you want to have it increase your appetite, that is what it will do. If you smoke a joint before a hike because you want to make the hike more enjoyable, that is what it will do. If you smoke it because you want to ease your pain, relax and/or de-stress yourself, it will help you do...


Find Your Inner ‘Ganja Goddess’

Deidra Bagdasarian refers to cannabis as both a “healing herb” and a “therapeutic aid” – or, in other words, an arguably essential ingredient absent from conventional wellness retreats. “Cannabis allows you to feel safe. It allows you to get real vulnerable real quick, by letting you take off your mask and bring down all those walls we put up around strangers – especially other women,” Bagdasarian, the founder of Bliss Edibles, tells Civilized. “When we talk about progress and empathy and equality and deepening our values as a society, cannabis is a tool in the toolbox to help promote all of that.” It was with this idea in mind in 2016 that Bagdasarian founded Ganja Goddess Getaways (GGG), a series of overnight retreats for women who are interested in using cannabis...


Marijuana and Meditation: How to Combine Your Two Favorite Things

Meditation has been part of human civilization for thousands of years, yet in our modern day it seems reserved for those who eat kale and buy ten dollar coffees. However, meditation is good for the mind, body and soul, and according to various health professionals, it should be regularly practiced to reduce stress and improve overall health. And according to history, it should also be practiced alongside a more familiar companion—marijuana. On their own, both mediation and marijuana have similar effects. Together, however, meditation is amplified. This has been evident in South Asia, where several religious groups including Buddhists, Naths and Shaivites have introduced it into their meditation practices. Many believe it helps to slow the mind and enter a state of “profound stillness” with heightened awareness. Turns out they’re...
