Hey there guys!
It’s been crazy around here for a while. My husband made the incredibly difficult decision to leave the doctoral program he’s been working on for 8 years and take a job. It’s a huge transition for our family, and I’ve been focused on taking care of my family and myself.
But I’ve got lots of exciting news to share!
I’m now an Ellementa leader for Saint Paul, and I can’t wait to meet and support more women locally who love cannabis. I plan to start hosting gatherings this summer.
I’ve also been so fortunate to meet some incredible cannabis advocates here in the Twin Cities lately. I attended a fantastic event with the MN Campaign for Full Legalization, who are working so hard and just totally killing it. If you live in Minnesota, check them out, donate, or become a sustaining member so they can keep doing their incredible work. I will also appear in a video for Minnesotans for Responsible Marijuana Regulation (MRMR) that will air in mid-May. It’s my first time doing this kind of thing, and it was super scary, but working for legalization is important to me so I went for it!
I’ve got an e-course in the works with a couple of other amazing women. It’s for moms who want to use cannabis to take back their health and their lives. We’ve chosen to focus on the tools and skills that made the biggest impact on our own lives, and condensed them into a short e-course. I’m very excited about this project, stay tuned!
And I’m launching a brand-new 8-week coaching program! It’s called Higher Self, and it focuses on using cannabis and mindfulness to create self-acceptance and self-compassion. I believe this is central to creating any kind of change in your life. Our culture values self-hate as a motivator, we think we we’ll become lazy slobs if we stop shouting mean things to ourselves and feeling guilty about everything. But that isn’t true, my friends. When we can accept all part of ourselves, we can gently begin to make lasting changes. It’s so much simpler than trying to create change while in conflict.
Here’s an example:
If you want to lose weight, you need to eat less and exercise. But when your desire to change becomes hateful and painful, then going to the gym means facing that pain. It’s no longer simply a decision to do what’s healthy for you, it’s a battle. You must face your shame, hear the voice in your mind shouting at you that you’re worthless and fat and horrible. That shit doesn’t work. My goal is to help you root out your limiting beliefs, stop self hate-speech, and make choices that serve you.
I’m offering a beta version of this program ahead of the launch, to work out any kinks and get feedback. I’ll take 4 applicants through the 8-week program for just $125. It includes 8 weekly 1 hour sessions by phone, and email support between calls. You are welcome to apply whether or not you are an experienced cannabis user. I will help you find the dose and product that feels good to you, and psychoactivity isn’t necessary. The program will officially launch May 13th for $499. If you’re interested in applying for the discounted beta version, schedule a free breakthrough call here. There’s no pressure. We just talk about your goals and expectations, I answer your questions, and we get to know each other a bit before deciding whether or not Higher Self is for you. I’m making this offer here and to my subscribers first, then I’ll extend it to my followers on social media Monday, May 6th.
Last but not least,
I’ll be focusing on DIY projects here on the blog during May, so check back on Mondays for recipes and tools for making cannabis products at home.
I wish you all well, and hope you have a fantastic week!
I am Jessica DaCosta, I'm a proud cannabis enthusiast, advocate, and mom of two.
