The keynote speaker for 2022’s Mas Grass is Murshida VA, founder of the Let My People Go Fund. Known for de-mystifying esoteric subjects and flying in the face of convention, Murshida VA (Rev. Victoria Angela, M.Ed., Ed.S.) is a radical, experimental feminist mystic, healer, thought-leader, poet, writer, dancer, musician, artist, peace-maker, activist, educator– and most recently, for civil disobedience in the process of successfully setting a precedent toward ending marijuana prohibition– felon. Murshida VA’s experiments with healing sound inspired Harvard University’s Mind-Body Institute and Annual Spirituality and Healing Conference to incorporate music and sound in their curriculums. She was the first Performance Artist-in-Residence at the Shands Hospital Arts-in-Medicine Program and the first person to bring arts-based interventions into the Lowell Correctional Facility, the second largest women’s prison in the United States. She has led workshops on Healing Sound and the Mysticism of Sound and Word at Harvard’s Positive Psychology Conference, The International Women’s Writers Guild Annual Conference, and facilitated numerous other workshops and spoken at medical conferences nationally. Murshida VA is currently transitioning to a PhD program in Consciousness Studies at CIIS, exploring the most productive way to share her activist participant observations to bring people together to change cannabis and hemp law, and leading private retreats by invitation.
Mas Grass also has special floating guest speakers: the crew behind Kannabis Kings Apparel. Kannabis Kings is a group of OG West Coast growers and East Coast brand managers. With over 20 years of experience cultivating and breeding premium craft cannabis, the collective has launched Kannabis Kings Apparel as a way for their customers to display their connection to and affinity for the cannabis community at large. Kannabis Kings is also proud to support The Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), the leading organization fighting to end cannabis prohibition in the United States.
