**Antuanette Gomez will be featured on the Sexuality Panel

In 2016, Lift hosted two word-class cannabis trade shows, first in Toronto in May and then Vancouver in September. These shows were the largest and most successful cannabis events Canada had ever seen, and with your participation and help we set the bar worldwide for what a professional, innovative, and forward-thinking cannabis industry should look like.

Looking ahead, Canada’s federal government has pledged to introduce legislation to legalize cannabis for adult use in the spring of 2017. This is an unprecedented move never before undertaken by an industrialized nation, and it will no doubt place a global spotlight on Canada while opening up an inestimable amount of exciting opportunities for consumers and businesses alike.

That’s why we’re taking the Lift Cannabis Expo a step further in 2017. Toronto will once again be home to Canada’s biggest cannabis event in May, except it’s going to be even BIGGER. The show floor has increased from 60,000 sq ft to 90,000 sq ft. As well, the expo is extended from two to three days to incorporate an industry-only day on Friday, May 26. And there is also a full conference component on Friday featuring panels, seminars, and presentations covering a variety of topics for industry, healthcare professionals, consumers, and patients.

Learning How To Love Again: Tantra Lv.1

Hello Lovelies!

 

Most people on this planet have a very hard time loving themselves or others. Most will do nothing to change that issue, but if you allow yourself to be vulnerable, you're life quality can change drastically.

 

Tantra is all about unleashing your sacred and sexual energy to have stronger relationships in life, wether that be yourself or loved ones. Tantra is something that needs to be shared in this day and age.

 

In our workshops we included meditations, physical movement, interaction with other participants, breath techniques, chakra work, lecture, discussion, body work, weaving community, and journaling.

 

We aim to clear your energy block in love, hoping to create a huge transformation in your love life. As should be expected.

 

Notes: If you are single, no partner is required to do this work

No nudity, no sexual activity

If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me at info@pleasurepeaks.com

Rose Brunch

There's something magical about brunch with a whole bunch of ladies and mimosas. It's where the idea was born on the business my partner and I created and where I've been able to connect with old industry colleagues and build new business ventures. 

 

The Rose's Brunch, brings female entrepreneurs that are guided with morals in order to help the world in a positive way; I've dubbed them Entrepreneurial Sweethearts. The main goal is not to rake in the dough, as much as it's needed, but to create a positive impact one project at a time! 

 

Due to the last brunch with a large number of cannabis industry ladies, and the recent findings of Women Grow TO I would love to branch out this brunch Mary Jane Style!!

 

With love,

A
