Medicinal mushrooms are more and more, becoming part of herbal medicine.
During this weekend we will explore twenty of the most well-known mushrooms
and look at them energetically and from a perspective of body system
specific. We will spend time in the classroom as well as outdoor, looking at
mushrooms in their native habitat, and then prepare some species into
medicine. We will discuss the myths of medicinal mushrooms, fungal/drug
interactions, dosages for acute and chronic conditions, and take a peek at
the world of Mushroom Essences.
