At least 158 Million people worldwide use Cannabis for medicinal, recreational, and spiritual purposes. This number increases daily as more people understand the power of this plant, and women in Colorado are coming together to prove they also can benefit from the community it brings.
Entrepreneur and hierophant that Cannabis can help woman dissolve “the competition complex,” Maggie Murphy of Colorado, also known as The Stoned Housewife, is blazing this path with The Green Lodge Goddess Gathering.
Once each month, with dates currently scheduled through June 2017 at the Vali Soul Sanctuary in Boulder, healers from all over the world are invited to enrich the lives of the women at the Green Lodge Goddess Gatherings. The theme, though always centered around indigenous Earth Medicine, changes each month, so ladies are encouraged to attend as many as possible to build upon previous teachings. While the theme may change, Maggie insists that one thing is for certain,
“Participants can expect that Loren, the house Kundalini instructor, will push them and enhance their moon flow by giving them specific sound currents and mantras to open up the neural pathways and promote healing.”
Regular attendee, Danielle Webster shared her thoughts about the most recent gathering,
“I have to say, smoking indoors in a public space is really cool. It’s even cooler to do this in a space with a bunch of other lady stoners who are coming together to use cannabis in a thoughtful and lackadaisical way. It’s not just about getting stoned, it’s about connecting through the use of cannabis to relax everyone and make them more comfortable in the environment.”
Through the Stoned Housewife brand, Maggie, is continuing to expand this community with partnerships for future lodges in California, Arizona, and Nevada.
“I love to create a space where women can come together and try new aspects of healing on multiple levels, and where each individual feels like her being there contributes to everyone,” Maggie explained. As one of the most affordable Cannabis friendly workshops in the area, they also aim to give back as much as possible to the women. “There is a gift exchange at the end of each event, and every woman walks away with a newly blessed treasure. Sometimes a simple gift of the intention to make someone else happy is the most healing someone can get that day.”
When asked what her vision for the future of the Green Lodge is, Maggie explains,
“I want to continue this growing tribe of women and have lodges all around the world, Cannabis is a small but integral part of women coming together in a unifying setting. There is no need for the ego because we all come with the intention to be a community.”
Recapping the last Green Lodge, Danielle said, “We were all together chanting, moving, and holding our bodies. Loren (the lodge Kundalini Yoga instructor) pushed us as we did forms of yoga ‘exercises’ we’ve never done before, and as a team we all learned how hard it is to sit still. Certain chants made us laugh together, others made us cry, but overall we all felt 100% more connected than when we had began the gathering. ”
Future dates for the lodge include April 24th, May 22nd, June 26th.
