By Paul Stamets. Fantastic Fungi: How Mushrooms Can Heal, Shift Consciousness, and Save the Planet contains contributions from many experts in the field and is a coffee table companion book to the film of the same name. This has been edited by world-renowned mycologist Paul Stamets and expands upon the film, Fantastic Fungi, through extended transcripts, new essays and interviews, and additional facts.
Fantastic Fungi aspires to educate and inspire in three critical areas: First, the text showcases research that reveals mushrooms as a viable alternative to Western pharmacology. Second, it explores studies pointing to mycelium as a solution to our gravest environmental challenges. And, finally, it details fungi’s marvelous proven ability to shift consciousness.
Motivating both the visually stunning film and this follow-up book is an urgent mission to change human consciousness and restore our planet.
