Mushroom cultivation is a fantastic practice that connects you with your food and medicine. It puts you right into the moment. It’s you, and the mycelium vs. EVERYTHING else. We could almost write the book, ‘Zen and the Art of Mushroom Cultivation.’ Maybe we will get to that book when we need a break from making epic online learning experiences. 😏
Not only do we cultivate mushrooms to cultivate ourselves. We are in the middle of a #Shroomboom!💥
Get ready for a fungal future!🍄🚀
According to the 2018 Global Wellness Trend report, the mushroom industry is booming. Top areas of growth include:
- Magic mushroom retreats
- Mushroom microdosing
- Mushroom infused foods and drinks
- Foraging and cultivation training
- Psilocybin therapy
- Mushroom supplements & Mushrooms for health
- Specialty & exotic gourmet mushroom cultivation
Denver, Oakland, and Santa Cruz decriminalized city-wide sacred mushrooms, and more extensive changes to sacred mushroom legislation is underway.
Sacred mushrooms are destined to experience the type of growth and transformation that cannabis has enjoyed in the last decade.
Now is the time to get skilled about all things Fungi.
Be ready, get skilled, change is coming!🙌
This year we will be opening for a couple of Apprenticeships after each course.
We cannot guarantee your spot until you have arrived to the academy and we have gotten to know each other! If you are interested make sure to notify us on your application form!
We live in a pretty rural area, most of the pandemic, we didn’t notice much difference in our lives. Travel to Guatemala is easy. You can either be vaccinated, have a negative PCR test or take a test when you arrive on the airport.
Right now, if you are from the UK or Brazil. You need to have left these countries two weeks prior to arrival. This is most likely to change before we start our programs.
Kids play in the street, masks are optionally everywhere. Life’s good🌞
