From the author of GROWING GOURMET AND MEDICINAL MUSHROOMS comes the only identification guide exclusively devoted to the world's psilocybin-containing mushrooms. Detailed descriptions and color photographs for over 100 species are provided, as well as an exploration of their long-standing (and often religious) use by ancient peoples and their continued significance to modern-day culture. Some of the species included have just been discovered in the past year or two, and still others have never before been photographed in their natural habitats.

Im Jahre 1971 macht sich eine Gruppe junger amerikanischer Anthropologen und Botaniker auf ins Amazonasgebiet, um die Wirkung von halluzinogenen Pflanzen auf das Weltbild der eingeborenen Schamanen zu erforschen. Die Einnahme dort wachsender Psilocybin-Pilze versetzt zwei von ihnen, Terence McKenna und seinen Bruder Dennis, selbst in den Zustand, den sie an visionssuchenden Schamanen untersuchen wollten. Dieses Erlebnis überzeugte McKenna, dass die Welt der ekstatischen Trance des Schamanen, die visionäre Welt des Psilocybins und die Welt, in der man Ausserirdische antrifft, verschiedene Aspekte ein und derselben paradoxen Realität sind. In den Jahren danach festigte sich seine Ansicht, dass man Psilocybin dazu benutzen kann, das Verhältnis von Geist und dem Unbekannten zu erforschen. Als Forscher einer neuen Generation erkundete er die nicht rationalen Teile der Psyche und entwickelte mit Hilfe seiner rationalen wissenschaftlichen Ausbildung eine "Quantenpsychologie". Sein Buch liest sich so spannend wie ein Bericht über die Erkundung eines fremden Kontinents.

Here is a practical step-by-step guide to cultivating four species of psilocybin-containing mushrooms, indoors and outside. Anyone with a clean kitchen, some basic equipment, and a closet shelf or shady flowerbed will be able to grow a bumper crop. This Handbook also includes an introduction to mushroom biology, a guide for supplies, and advice on discreetly integrating psychedelic mushrooms into outdoor gardens. Hand-drawn illustrations and full-color and black-&-white photographs provide the reader with steps in the cultivation process and exact identification of desired species. The four species detailed include two species that have previously had very little coverage: Psilocybe mexicana (a tiny mushroom used for millennia by indigenous Mexican shamans) and Psilocybe azurescens (a newly described species native to the Pacific Northwest and easily grown outdoors on woodchips). This innovative book also offers a wealth of information about the use of psilocybin-containing mushrooms in both traditional and modern contexts. Contributing ethnobotanist Kathleen Harrison highlights the history, ritual and mythology of sacred Psilocybe mushrooms used in indigenous shamanic settings. The book’s authors offer insights into how these principles might be put into practice by the modern voyager, to provide, safe, healing and fruitful journeys.

Mycelium Running is a manual for the mycological rescue of the planet. That’s right: growing more mushrooms may be the best thing we can do to save the environment, and in this groundbreaking text from mushroom expert Paul Stamets, you’ll find out how. The basic science goes like this: Microscopic cells called “mycelium”--the fruit of which are mushrooms--recycle carbon, nitrogen, and other essential elements as they break down plant and animal debris in the creation of rich new soil. What Stamets has discovered is that we can capitalize on mycelium’s digestive power and target it to decompose toxic wastes and pollutants (mycoremediation), catch and reduce silt from streambeds and pathogens from agricultural watersheds (mycofiltration), control insect populations (mycopesticides), and generally enhance the health of our forests and gardens (mycoforestry and myco-gardening). In this comprehensive guide, you’ll find chapters detailing each of these four exciting branches of what Stamets has coined “mycorestoration,” as well as chapters on the medicinal and nutritional properties of mushrooms, inoculation methods, log and stump culture, and species selection for various environmental purposes. Heavily referenced and beautifully illustrated, this book is destined to be a classic reference for bemushroomed generations to come. From the Trade Paperback edition.
