Mushroom Essences - ISBN 9781623170455What are Mushroom Essences?

Much like like flower essences, mushroom essences are medicinal liquids that can cure illnesses of the mind, body and spirit. Flower essences are frequently used by alternative health practitioners and represent solar energy, a tool for bringing light into the darkness. Mushroom essences are less widely known and represent lunar energy, a gateway to the underworld and the subconscious. They are a tool for peeling away the bars of long-held emotional and mental imprisonment.

Mushroom Essences is the first book to be published on this emerging field of study, and includes a reference guide to 48 medicinal mushroom and lichen essences with directions for collecting and using each one.

Written by respected herbalist and author Robert Dale Rogers, this handbook is a profound exploration of both the practical and mythopoetic qualities of the mushroom, this is a must-have for anyone interested in plant medicine, mycology, personal healing, or depth psychology.
