In 2015 I left The ArcView Group to follow some kind of calling. Upon my departure, I received all kinds of reflections about my leap into the unknown. Some saw the move as brave and bold, others questioned my motive and considered the decision crazy. I mostly embodied bravery, but at times I did feel crazy. To leave the firm was to walk away from an investor community worth several billion dollars, a family shaped largely by my own heart and soul. At the time, I didn’t really know where I was going, but in my heart of hearts I knew that my work with ArcView had came to fruition and that it was time to move on.
Visionary artists and power couple Alex and Allyson Grey have been showing up in the cannabis industry with artwork that has embodied the spirit of the plant medicine. Their work is paramount in the psychedelic art movement and live music community both of which overlap in the cannabis sector.
Most recently, they provided live art and a talk on cannabis at the Emerald Cup in Santa Rosa, CA. Emerald cup is an annual consumer show most commonly known for its award winning contestants and their prized flowers, topicals, edibles and regenerative farmers among other categories. On day two of the cup, I had the pleasure of meeting Alex and Allyson and shared an intimate moment with them on the topic of prayer.
