Steven Halpern – Cannabis Dreams: Tuning Fork for the Brain

Aired Monday, June 28, 2021 at 11:00 AM PST / 2:00 PM EST / 7:00 PM GMT / 8:00 PM CET

For centuries and across cultures, sacred ceremonies using plant medicine were vital to collective well-being. These long-revered healing plants, ayahuasca, peyote, cannabis, and mushrooms nourished individuals and were crucial for collective well-being. Yet, these long-revered healing instruments have been largely forgotten by today’s society. Why? What might we be missing? And what role do music and plants play in nurturing and uplifting body, mind, and spiritual well-being? Music is a tuning fork for the brain. Can the frequencies and harmonics in plants inspire healing? Can music help us “get high” and feel good? What role does sound play in building peaceful communities?

Join voice-visionary Kara Johnstad, and GRAMMY® nominated composer, recording artist, and researcher Steven Halpern in an in-depth conversation on sound consciousness and his new album release, Cannabis Dreams. In 2021, with legalization in many states and with the medical benefits of cannabis more widely accepted – Halpern’s co-composed masterpiece is released, and we celebrate. Learn through plant medicine and music to reprogram unconscious patterns that no longer serve us. Explore the principle of consciousness and change. Co-create a sound world.
