RETREAT & RECONNECT: MEDICINAL MUSHROOMS & MYCELIAL MAGIC Co-taught with Gina Rivers Contla
Whether you are one of the beshroomed or just mycocurious, this immersion into the mystical and veiled kingdom of fungi will not disappoint you! This magical experience will start with an informative and lively lecture that is designed to introduce fundamental concepts to the fungal uninitiated. We will introduce simple distinctions surrounding the elusive kingdom of fungi, and quickly branch into various and diverse applications for medicinal mushrooms. While several concepts will be introduced for the audience’s consideration, a focus will be placed on clinical applications of using medicinal fungi in herbal practice. Fundamental anatomy and physiology of the innate, acquired and primary immune response will be reviewed, and the known impact that mushrooms have on the human immune system will be revealed.
