I have always taken good care of my body with exercise and good food. When I began exploring the mushroom realms at the age of 48, I realized immediately how important it was to have a strong healthy body, as nature’s entheogenic plants and fungi can take a lot out of the body. There is much talk about “set and setting” with regard to psychedelics but little in the way of how to prepare and support the body with herbs and other foods.
Rebecca Rozelle Presnall  is a master herbalist, practitioner, and teacher. I have known her for several years and her depth of herbal knowledge and application is just incredible. In the first half of this episode Rebecca shares her journey into the role of herbalist, and lays the base of foundational herbal infusions that will support the body on many levels, including a mushroom journey. In the second hour Rebecca discusses the use of herbs in ritual settings for protection and support. She has great wisdom and experience on these matters and listening to her is time truly well spent. https://www.etsy.com/shop/nourishwholeness

The medicinal mushroom market is rife with fraudulently advertised products that contain little medicinal value due to certain growing methods and poor sourcing. Those dealing with cancer and other illnesses who are seeking to avail themselves of the many healing constituents these mushrooms contain are often deprived of receiving the extraordinary benefits found in properly sourced fungi. Enter Garrett Kopp, a learned and dedicated steward of the Adirondack forests in northern New York State whose heartfelt connection to that precious land enables him to hear what he calls, “the whisper in the wind.” He is a voice for Chaga sustainability and he speaks to the importance of sourcing wild-harvested medicinal mushrooms for their forest-given potency.

I love working with dreams as they reveal so much if we can decipher the symbolism and intuit their messages. Nature and the deep psyche – which is nature – speak in symbol, and a psychedelic mushroom journey is no different. Over the years I’ve helped people interpret and integrate their psychedelic journeys including the “bad trips.” You can’t predict how a journey will go but there is much that can be done to make sure you are safe and comfortable and well-tended. If and when a mushroom journey goes sideways there are many things you can do to recover and begin the process of understanding just what the hell happened.

In the first hour I offer advice on how to prepare for a journey to ensure that even if the journey goes dark we are as safe as we can possibly be. I share a couple of stories of particularly difficult experiences and how I worked with that client to interpret the event. My approach is to key into the symbolic nature of the experience and it is my hope that those interested will have an avenue to better understand their own challenging journey and/or the journeys of others.
 
Hour 2 begins by delving into a nightmare shared by my late teacher, Dr Brugh Joy, MD, and explores his approach to dream interpretation, which can be used to make sense of a bad or a pleasant journey. I then discuss what to do after a bad trip and I also touch on spirit possession. With psilocybin mushrooms getting so much good press these days there are more people than ever who are availing themselves. It is essential to be as prepared as possible and have all the tools we need to get through it and learn from the experience.
