Herbal Perspectives on Medicinal Mushrooms: Integrating the Six Flavours, Herbal Energetics and the Doctrine of Signatures with Patrick Kooyman of Blue Lotus Ethnobotanicals

We all have a built-in tool box for understanding the medicinal effects of herbs, which is our senses. Traditional cultures around the world have used organoleptics (sensory data of taste, smell and feel), together with close observation of nature and the human body, to develop deep knowledge of the healing powers of mushrooms. In this class, you will learn:

  •         The six flavour model, and how the flavour of medicinal mushrooms relates directly to their medicinal actions in the body
  •         How herbal energetics (such as heating vs. cooling, or moistening vs. drying) can be used to describe medicinal mushrooms, and choose which are most appropriate for an individual and their condition
  •         How to read the signatures of nature to gain insight into mushroom medicine
  •         How we can integrate these ancient sensory-based methods with modern science for a more holistic understanding of medicinal mushrooms


Mycelial Consciousness with Yarrow Willard Cl.H.

This adventure will take us down the rabbit hole into the depths of the "wood wide web", where we will delve into a variety of concepts that are likely to tickle more than a few neurotransmitters in your brain.  As we travel through the veils, over the gills and between the spores, these fungal allies have the capacity to rekindle our alignment with the myco-conscious evolution of ourselves and the planet as a whole. So buckle your red-belts, and get ready to Chaga Chaga choo choo on the mushroom train with the Herbal Jedi.
