Undoing the Stigma: The Impact of Cannabis Prohibition on the Subconscious...

We are happy to be hosting Jess Dugan for a workshop March 29th at 7:00pm in The Lounge at Harvest off Mission. Eradicating the stigma surrounding cannabis will take lifetimes. Although many of us are well on our way to undoing the stigma, subconscious effects remain and are present for many. This workshop places the impact of prohibition under the microscope in order to begin our deepest work yet.

Attendees will:

  • Discuss the stigma associated with cannabis
  • Identify how this stigma plays out in the subconscious mind
  • Explore the impact of subconscious wounding as it relates to one's ability to heal/ operate fully
  • Practice tools that support overcoming deep rooted stigma
