In this book, yoga teacher Dee Dussault brings the ancient tradition of using cannabis to enhance spiritual practice to a western audience. She describes the act of Ganja Yoga as a ceremony that makes conscious relaxation an intentional ritual that can be improved upon with practice. Dee Dussault is a certified yoga instructor and the first person to bring cannabis-enhanced yoga classes to North America. In Ganja Yoga, Dee walks readers through the considerations and best practices for introducing cannabis into your yoga practice, or infusing yoga into your smoking routine. It's equally useful for those who want to attend classes or use the book in the comfort of their own homes. Ganja Yoga will assist readers in how to: • Reap the benefits of profound relaxation • Assume an altered state in a safe, energizing way • Deepen the spiritual practice of yoga • Reconnect with the body using ancient techniques • Select the best setting, time, method of consumption, strains, poses and breathing techniques to ensure an excellent experience. Ganja Yoga isn't just a guide to mixing cannabis and exercise, it's a lifestyle practice for a more stress-free, harmonious world.

Named a Best Book of Summer by Parade * Refinery29 * PopSugar * Bustle * Working Mother * Town & Country * Thought Catalog * PureWow * Betches * Literary Hub * Brides “Think: The Affair meets Animal House meets your beach bag. Get into it.”—TheSkimm “A twisted modern love story.” —Parade “Everything you could ever want in a summer read.” —USA TODAY Everyone remembers the one. No, not that one. The other one. The one you couldn’t let go of. The one you’ll never forget. Lucy Albright is far from her Long Island upbringing when she arrives on the campus of her small California college, and happy to be hundreds of miles from her mother, whom she’s never forgiven for an act of betrayal in her early teen years. Quickly grasping at her fresh start, Lucy embraces college life and all it has to offer—new friends, wild parties, stimulating classes. And then she meets Stephen DeMarco. Charming. Attractive. Complicated. Devastating. Confident and cocksure, Stephen sees something in Lucy that no one else has, and she’s quickly seduced by this vision of herself, and the sense of possibility that his attention brings her. Meanwhile, Stephen is determined to forget an incident buried in his past that, if exposed, could ruin him, and his single-minded drive for success extends to winning, and keeping, Lucy’s heart. Lucy knows there’s something about Stephen that isn’t to be trusted. Stephen knows Lucy can’t tear herself away. And their addicting entanglement will have consequences they never could have imagined. Alternating between Lucy’s and Stephen’s voices, Tell Me Lies follows their connection through college and post-college life in New York City. With psychological insight and biting wit, this keenly intelligent and staggeringly resonant novel chronicles the yearning ambitions, desires, and dilemmas of young adulthood, and the difficulty of letting go, even when you know you should.
