Cannabis Assisted Sessions for Individuals
With exploration comes transformation
Many of us struggle with distraction, disconnection, and disassociation from our bodies, our selves, and our dreams. The practice of returning to the body through the breath and the transmutational power of cannabis-assisted meditation can be a pathway for letting go of the past, embracing the present, and moving towards a more embodied future.
Working with cannabis as a sacred plant ally is a unique opportunity to access a psychedelic experience within the realm of the everyday. Setting an intention to heal, transcend, and transform, alongside an experienced guide, allows us to access the same spiritual parts of ourselves as other psychedelics – while working with a plant that is legal in the state of California. It allows you to transport the skills you learn on your journey into your daily life.
In private sessions, cannabis can support you in turning inward, resolving tension stored within the body, tracking inner sensations, and releasing traumas from the nervous system. With preparation, intention, a therapeutic container, and integration afterwards, cannabis can deepen the therapeutic process and make somatic, body-centered trauma work more efficient and effective.
Experience the profound emotional healing, physical release, and creative awakening that can come from cannabis-assisted body-focused mindfulness practices.
Your Journey Inwards
A guided cannabis-assisted journey is an opportunity to explore and release trauma, go inward, and seek – and experience – transformation. It is appropriate both for those new to psychedelics and intentional cannabis use as well as for more experienced psychonauts.
All journeys include one prep session, held virtually over Zoom, to discuss your goals, clarify your intentions, and review what to expect. In the days following the journey, an integration session takes place. If you are a new client interested in this work, I recommend beginning with at least one hypnotherapy session with me to clarify your intentions and create a safe and scared container for your work. This container can make partnering with cannabis more effective.
This transformational journey is what you make of it. Take some time before your session to set your intentions. What do you want to let go of? What do you want to bring in? What do you want to transform?
One to two hypnotherapy sessions can help you to access your intentions, clear out the static, and ultimately go deeper during your journey. Whether or not you choose to build a foundation with hypnotherapy, set aside some time to journal about what you’d like to explore during your journey. Some prompts might include:
- Who are you now? Who do you want to be?
- What attachments do you carry that no longer serve you? Why do you want to release them?
- What’s blocking you from showing up how you want in your life, whether with yourself, with loved ones, or in your life’s purpose?
- What or who do you want to forgive, and for what?
- What fears are holding you back? What would your life be like without them?
- What is the future of which you dream? Get as specific as you can.
Spending time in nature, gentle physical activity that is available to you, and using your existing mindfulness toolbox can also all support your preparations.
I recommend refraining from cannabis, alcohol, or other substances for a minimum of 72 hours before your journey.
You will also be asked to sign a waiver and participation agreement before the journey that acknowledges that you have spoken with a medical doctor.
Try to get a good night’s sleep the night before, and eat a light and small meal a few hours in advance.
Set up a private space for your session where you will not be disturbed. For sessions in your own home, I recommend a yoga mat and blankets on the floor for stability, with plenty of pillows to create a nest for your journey. Have an eye covering, journal and pen, and glass of water standing by, and a light snack prepared and set aside for after. You can also gather any small personal items to aid in your intention setting, such as a photo, crystal, or oracle deck. Prepare your cannabis flower in advance of your journey. Wear comfortable clothing.
For virtual sessions, check your internet connection in advance, update your device, connect your device to a power source, and make sure you are visible on video.
We’ll begin by checking in and connecting to establish a secure container for your journey and bring your intentions to the surface. We’ll move to an opening meditation and instructions. You’ll experience an immersive guided meditation and journey, with a rich musical accompaniment, that will allow you to release what no longer serves you and embrace what does. As our time together comes to a close, you’ll be able to share your experience and start to integrate it into your transformed self, as well as ground and close out your journey.
Integrating your breakthroughs, lessons, and realizations from your journey is as important as the journey itself. This is the part where the true work begins. Taking a few moments each day to journal, reflect, and breathe is an essential part of getting everything you can from your experience. An integration session with me to process and to identify and implement action steps to move forward may be beneficial.
Drinking lots of water, prioritizing sleep, spending time in nature, and gentle physical activity can also support your integration.
Though an advantage of a cannabis-assisted journey is learning how to incorporate the plant ally into your own practices, I recommend refraining from cannabis, alcohol, or other substances for a few days after your journey to give yourself a chance to sit with what you learned.

Shouldn’t I just try to do similar work with a traditional psychedelic medicine?
Mainstream medicine increasingly recognises the benefits of plant medicines and entheogens such as ayahuasca, psilocybin, MDMA, and others – but that doesn’t make them legal or accessible. Cannabis is legal in the state of California, is accessible, and, when used with intention, can provide a gentler way to explore deep inner work. Cannabis also gives journeyers more agency over their experience, with easy-to-adjust dosage and a shorter journey time of often two to five hours, with normal functioning resuming shortly after the session (though you still shouldn’t drive after).
How do I know whether this is a good fit for me?
Cannabis is not one size fits all, even when it suits an individual’s body chemistry. If you are familiar with how cannabis feels in your body, have been doing inner self work, or are curious about cannabis and mindfulness as tools for personal transformation, this event might be a good fit for you – however, only you (and the medical doctor we ask that all participants speak to in advance) can make that decision.
Working with cannabis is safe for most people, but it can also be emotionally intense and it is always best to err on the side of safety. You will be required to sign a waiver and participation agreement before participating in any event or journey that acknowledges that you have spoken with a medical doctor. If you have any questions or concerns please speak with a medical doctor.
Can cannabis-assisted journeys take place virtually and how effective is it?
One of the great things that came out of the pandemic was realizing that this work can and does happen in the virtual space. Although in-person journeys are preferred, you can participate in this experience anywhere you have a strong WiFi signal and can create your “nest.”
I’m not ready for the commitment of a solo journey. Do you offer group sessions?
Yes! A group cannabis-assisted journey can be a powerful experience that allows you to go deep in the company of fellow journeyers. Though it does not have the one-on-one time of a solo journey, the group experience resonates harder than a solo experience for some individuals. Please visit my events page for info about the next group experience.
Do you have a payment plan?
Yes. If you wish to break up the fee into two payments, you can choose to pay 50% of the fee at the time of booking and 50% of the fee at the start of your first prep session.
“I felt very safe during the session. She was very open to answer any questions and provided me with everything I needed to know to have a good session. The initial phone conversations before the session helped me feel like she knew what she was doing and I could let go and allow the experience to happen. I had a very profound experience and I believe it really helped me overcome my PTSD that I’ve been crippled with for at least the past three years. I feel like my nervous system has been rewired. It’s been a few weeks since the session and I wondered if the good effects would wear off. No! I still feel great. Jordan is an angel who came to the rescue. I am a true believer in this work. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
“I have tried other plant medicine ceremonies, but this was the most profound. Jordan did such an amazing job explaining how to set up and what to expect. The way she opened the session was great to get settled in for a wild ride, that literally changed how I see my life and existence. The music she chose was the icing on the cake that helped guide the journey. It brought up things to work on and showed me where I should be. A most amazing journey! Thank you Jordan!”
“I did a canna journey with Jordan two weeks ago and it was amazing. Jordan guided me perfectly through a long and enlightening trip. She is great to work with and the experience was very worthwhile.“
