Ladies! Sisters! Time to gather again and honor our Ancestors' Wisdom of Tradition, Rituals and Ceremony. Time to honor the Earth by offering our Moon Blood to Her. Therefore, reconnecting our Spirit to Mother Earth, the Great Goddess of All.
This ceremony is for Women to connect to their womb, their menstrual cycles, the cycles of Nature, to the Beauty and Power of the Divine Feminine. All women are welcomed, even if you are no longer or not yet menstruating. There is much wisdom in coming together and sharing around this topic and the theme of the Red Tent which we will introduce.
Mandika Divya and Clarity Bartleet invite you around a Sacred Fire. Together we shall chant, sing, pray, eat and dance! We invite each and every Woman to share a bit about their personal story as well as a song, poem, spoken word, etc. if they like to. Bring instruments if you like (no jembe allowed unfortunately, Park's regulations). We encourage anything that comes from the heart and would love it if we could all sing to it as well (e.g. call and respond). However, it is entirely up to you! We honor you, we love you for the way you are and we would Love to Hear you!
❤️PLEASE SAVE YOUR MOON BLOOD FOR THIS CEREMONY IF YOU CAN. ❤️
Yes, your menstrual blood, put it in the fridge in a bottle and bring it with you at the Ceremony. One by one, each Sister who brings her Moon Blood will be invited to plant it at our Sacred Altar. Therefore, completing an important alchemical Cycle of Nature that we will introduce.
What to bring: ~WEAR RED if possible and dress WARM ~Wood for the Fire if available to you ~Offering for the Fire (e.g. hair, resin, sage, wax, candles, etc.) ~Food to share if desired
In case of rain, the circle will be hosted at a location near by Dufferin Grove Park.

Although this offering is in the park, there are expenses and a lot of energy that go into organizing such ceremonies. We truly appreciate your contribution. Financial assistance available.
We look forward to sharing this precious time of Lunar Gathering with all of you Goddesses <3
Because Ganja is a Plant Medicine & Teacher who deserves Her own Ceremonies and Intentional Practices.
Li Samadhi and Clarity Bartleet invite you on a special journey of reclaiming the Sacredness of Ganja.
Clarity will introduce the night by sharing her own teachings of Ganja as a Sacred Plant and Spirit as well as some historical background of Ganja and its usage in rituals, ceremonies, spiritual practices from Ancient Egypt to India.
Li Samadhi will bless us with her Musical Talent and Vocal Gift in order to honor our Plant Medicine with powerful chants that everyone can take part in (call and response, Kirtan, toning, free chants, etc.).
We will all be blessing the Medicine with our Intentions and a prayer before sharing It in the form of vapor.
Participants will be free to lay down, dance, sing with us and share any musical instruments that they would like to bring. Some shakers and drums will also be available for everyone to co-create the soundscape for our journey.
What is a Ganja Ceremony? As a Spirit and Teacher, Ganja gives us insights about our life, a new perspective to see and experience reality. Her lessons can come in the form of thoughts, visions, emotions, sensations, feelings of inner knowing, etc. She also allows us to dive deep into our psyche to see some previously hidden aspects of ourselves, allowing us to tap into our subconscious for potential shadow work, revealing perhaps Truths that we would otherwise ignore. In sharing their energy, sound, presence and support, Clarity and Li will create a safe environment for you to journey with the Medicine. You will be able to share your experience at the end of the Ceremony if you so desire.

Ganja Yoga with Clarity Every Saturday 12pm-1.30pm The House of Yoga, 714 Bloor Street West, Toronto
Ganja and Yoga have been paired since the very inception of Yoga, both originating from India and both assisting us in connecting to the Divine. I've been practicing and teaching Ganja Yoga for about a year and what I've noticed is that the messages and insights from the Plant Medicine can reach us event more easily when we get our blood pressure flowing in our body. For this reason, I decided to teach a more physical Ganja Yoga class that will focus on both, strength and flexibility, and will allow us to tap into the blissful state of being completely connected to our body and feeling our own energy. I hope to see you there.
