About the Author

Will Johnson is the director of the Institute for Embodiment Training, a teaching school in Costa Rica that views the body as the doorway, not the obstacle, to real spiritual growth and transformation. The author of several books, including Breathing through the Whole Body, The Spiritual Practices of Rumi, and Eyes Wide Open, he teaches a deeply body-oriented approach to sitting meditation at Buddhist centers around the world.

Reviews

"Cannabis in Spiritual Practice is a wonderful combination of practical advice and fascinating history, offered up without preaching or judgment. If you've ever been curious about how cannabis can enhance your devotional life or your yoga or meditation practice, this is an excellent place to start exploring." * Robyn Griggs Lawrence, author of The Cannabis Kitchen Cookbook *
"Will Johnson has a clear understanding of the human 'mindbody,' how we limit ourselves, how we can free ourselves from those limitations to awaken to unconditioned reality, and how cannabis can play a valuable role in that awakening journey when used skillfully. His articulation of these central human concerns is as clear as his understanding. Cannabis in Spiritual Practice seamlessly blends principle and practice into accessible, applicable guidance." * Stephen Gray, author of Cannabis and Spirituality *
"For those who value the herb for her limitless potential, Cannabis in Spiritual Practice is the next level. Highly recommend." * Graham Hancock, author of Fingerprints of the Gods and Supernatural *
