MUSHROOM WISDOM is a guide to shamanic techniques for cultivating practical spirituality. In indigenous contexts, sacred plants are understood to have the power to teach essential knowledge and to bring seekers to states of divine consciousness. Mushroom space is a divine space. Anyone can eat mushrooms and experience the profound mind-manifesting powers of the sacred plant, but actually using them with intent and purpose for spiritual development requires certain techniques. A space of spirit, mind, and meaning. When using mushrooms as spiritual tools, they become plant teachers. Seekers only need learn to listen to how they communicate and how they impart their lessons. A space of beauty and wonder. What do the mushrooms teach? Primarily, mushrooms teach about the self. They open seekers up to the process of their own mind and their means of reality construction. They teach seekers about who and what they are. It is totally other and unknown. When approached as teachers, the mushroom experience, while profoundly joyful, is primarily work. Learning is work. Understanding our true self is work. Understanding the nature of the mind and our construction of reality is work. But it is work with profound rewards. Yet, immediately familiar and intimate. MUSHROOM WISDOM offers guidance through this potentially difficult and harrowing process. The starting point of any genuine spiritual quest is with the self. When we begin to understand self, then we can begin to know the universe in which we find ourselves. It is Home.
