Sean Paidrag O'Donoghue

Mushrooms and the Ecology of Consciousness

Beneath our feet the mycelia of mushrooms and the roots of plants intertwine, forming the nervous systems of forests and fields. Some of those mushrooms also have the capacity to help our own consciousness become woven back in with the living world around us.   

 

Psilocybe mushrooms can help many overcome depression, addiction, trauma, and other painful experiences that stem from the alienation and disconnection of modern life.
