  1. Exploring Plant Power for Personal and Social Healing with Firstman & Steve DeAngelo Carly Puch 59:22

This week has two legendary guests – Steve DeAngelo and Firstman. This episode  explores cannabis, not just as a plant, but as a pivotal element in the tapestry of wellness, sustainability, and conscious living. We're peeling back layers of systemic racism tied to cannabis prohibition, and with the help of the Last Prisoner Project, we're illuminating the dark corners of cannabis-related incarceration injustices.

Have you ever considered the spiritual kinship between humans and plants? Join us as we link arms with esteemed guests to navigate the spiritual significance of cannabis within Rastafari and indigenous Shipibo traditions. We're scrutinizing the cultural symbols of cannabis and psychedelics, questioning the corporatization of an industry that could take a leaf out of the book of communal healing and empowerment offered at retreats like the Rastafari Indigenous Village.

The episode wraps up with a thoughtful critique of the cannabis industry's trajectory while highlighting the potential of psychedelic retreats to foster social justice and enable empowering change. Tune in for an episode that's more than just a conversation—it's a rallying cry for unity, understanding, and a reconnection to the wisdom of plant teachers.

Guest bios:

Firstman: Firstman is a longtime advocate for the sustainable development of the cultural industry through the preservation, protection and promotion of cultural events; community development projects; traditional knowledge, and indigenous expression. He is one of the original founders of Rastafari Indigenous Village (RIV); a father, drummer, chanter, singer, songwriter, and orator. Firstman is a founding member of Life Is A Ceremony retreat.

Steve DeAngelo:  Steve is a globally recognized cannabis leader who was dubbed “the father of the legal industry” by former Speaker of the California Assembly Willie Brown. A lifelong cannabis activist, author, educator, and entrepreneur, Steve has spent almost a half-century on the front lines of the cannabis liberation movement. 

Steve believes that cannabis and the other visionary plants offer humanity a wisdom that is necessary to preserve the planet and all her creatures. He will continue his work until these medicines and the people who revere them have a safe and honored place in all human societies.

As I stumbled through the perils of answering the ultimate question, "what do you want to do with your life?" I knew somehow my answer would incorporate helping others. This translated into paths that, when I tuned into the universe, I realized were very connected. (Funny how that always happens!)

People are complicated, messy, and layered with identities. So is this space. I am a meditation enthusiast that sits in quietness every morning and a lover of blasting 90's hip-hop at full volume. I'm a gym rat and a yoga instructor. I am both learner and a teacher. We are all many things. Together we can make them all work.

I love to share all the things I'm learning along the way. Learning how to be your most fabulous self but being honest about how damn hard and messy it can be along the way lets you speak your truth. It allows you to best use your voice for the causes that matter to you. Let's get healthy and change the world together!
