An exploration of the use of cannabis as a sacrament in spiritual practice • Provides instructions for using marijuana for the spiritual practices of spontaneous movement, ecstatic dance, sitting meditation, and gazing meditation, allowing you to open the body’s energies more fully and get closer to the Divine or your higher self • Includes a new translation of the Five Moral Precepts of Buddhism, adapted to include energetic practices and the judicious use of entheogenic substances as a legitimate support for spiritual growth • Includes access to 9 audio meditations With the end of marijuana prohibition on the horizon, people are now openly seeking a spiritual path that embraces the benefits of cannabis. Drawing upon his decades of experience as a teacher of Buddhism, breathing, yoga, and embodied spirituality, Will Johnson examines Eastern spiritual perspectives on marijuana and offers specific guidelines and exercises for integrating cannabis into spiritual practice. The author explains how the great Hindu god Shiva enjoyed consuming bhang, a marijuana mixture that would cause his body to make spontaneous movements. From these cannabis-inspired movements, Shiva brought the body-focused practices of dance and yoga to the world. Examining the spiritual path of Shiva, including the Sadhu tradition, Johnson provides specific instructions and protocols for using marijuana as a sacrament as Shiva did. He explores how to embrace cannabis for the practices of spontaneous movement, ecstatic dance, sitting meditation, and gazing meditation. He reveals how the ecstatic surrender to the feeling energies of the body in these practices is enhanced through the ingestion of Shiva’s herb, allowing you to open the body’s energies more fully and get closer to the Divine or your higher self. Exploring the Buddhist practices of calming the mind and grounding yourself in sensory awareness, Johnson shows that, while traditional Buddhist teachings forbid the use of intoxicating substances, Buddhists who use cannabis are not committing a cardinal sin--in following our dharma, we must embrace what best supports our spiritual practice. He concludes with a new translation of the Five Moral Precepts of Buddhism--what he calls the Five Precepts of Embodied Responsibility--adapted to include energetic practices using breath, interaction with the energies of nature, sacred sex, and the judicious use of entheogenic substances, such as cannabis, as legitimate support for spiritual growth.

Seit mindestens 6000 Jahren wird Hanf als Faserlieferant, als Nahrung und Genussmittel kulturell genutzt, aber auch seine vielseitigen medizinischen Qualitäten wurden früh entdeckt. Er hatte seinen festen Platz in der pharaonischen, der assyrischen, der antiken, der islamischen und der mittelalterlichen Medizin. In der chinesischen und tibetischen Medizin werden seine euphorisierenden, antidepressiven Eigenschaften geschätzt, im Ayurveda wird er als Allheilmittel und Aphrodisiakum gepriesen. Doch auch unsere germanisch-keltischen Ahnen haben die Pflanze medizinisch genutzt. Hildegard von Bingen gebrauchte sie genauso wie Samuel Hahnemann, der Begründer der Homöopathie. In der modernen medizinischen und pharmakologischen Forschung werden nun die früheren und die ethnobotanischen Anwendungen der Hanfpflanze getestet und grösstenteils bestätigt. Dieses Buch zeichnet die Geschichte und die Bedeutung des Hanfs in den verschiedenen medizinischen Systemen und Lehren nach und gibt eine Fülle von praktischen Anwendungen und Rezepten. Mit einem Vorwort von Dr. med. Franjo Grotenhermen.

As the debate rages on over the legality of marijuana use and cultivation, what if the final word on the use and cultivation of marijuana was actually found in the Wordthe Holy Bible? And what if Gods Word actually said that cannabis was not only morally and ethically acceptable, but that it could help you mature spiritually and bring you closer to God? God Made Marijuana: A Modern Moral-Ethical Argument Supporting the Use, Cultivation, and Legalization of Cannabis shows you why its okay with God if you smoke, cultivate, or use marijuana. Exploring the role of cannabis in medicine, politics, history, religion, and society, author Santos O. Gonzlez, PhD, provides scriptural evidence that shows that marijuana is good physically, emotionally, and spirituallyand that individuals are not breaking any biblical moral code that prohibits its use for medicinal, recreational, or spiritual purposes. God Made Marijuana also describes how the prohibition of marijuana and the war on drugs are politically and culturally constructed aberrations of the truth that have no grounding in Gods moral authority. With justifications that are rooted in the final authorityGod, the Bible, and other sacred textsusers of cannabis or marijuana can continue without guilt. But even more, they can move forward with the knowledge that their use can help them expand their consciousness and grow closer to God.

Von 1990 bis 1995 führte Dr. Rick Strassman an der Universität New Mexico von der DEA genehmigte klinische Forschungen durch, bei denen er sechzig Freiwilligen DMT injizierte, eine der wirkungsvollsten psychedelischen Substanzen, die uns bekannt sind. Sein ausführlicher und detaillierter Bericht über diese Sitzungen ist eine faszinierende Erkundung der Natur des menschlichen Geistes und des therapeutischen Potenzials psychedelischer Substanzen. DMT, eine aus Pflanzen gewonnene Substanz, die auch vom Gehirn des Menschen gebildet wird, führte dabei immer wieder zu Nahtoderfahrungen und mystischen Erlebnissen. Viele der Freiwilligen berichteten von Begegnungen mit intelligenten, nicht-menschlichen Wesenheiten, insbesondere "Außerirdischen". Fast alle hatten das Gefühl, dass die Sitzungen zu den tiefsten Erfahrungen ihres Lebens gehörten. Strassmans Forschungen bringen DMT mit der Zirbeldrüse in Verbindung, die bei den Hindus als der Sitz des siebten Chakras gilt und von René Descartes als Sitz der Seele bezeichnet wurde. Das Buch führt Argumente für die kühne Behauptung an, dass auf natürliche Weise von der Zirbeldrüse freigesetztes DMT die Bewegung der Seele in den Körper hinein und aus ihm hinaus fördert und Bestandteil der Erfahrungen von Geburt und Tod ist; auch an höchsten Zuständen der Meditation und an transzendenten sexuellen Erlebnissen scheint es beteiligt zu sein. Klug angewendet, könnte DMT eine Periode bemerkenswerter Fortschritte in der wissenschaftlichen Erkundung der geheimnisvollsten mystischen Regionen der menschlichen Psyche und seines Seelenlebens einleiten.
