Oliver Merivee and Jasper Degenaars

Oliver and Jasper are both first-grade mycophiles. For both of them, their love for mushroom cultivation started in the Netherlands after growing their first mushrooms from ‘Sacred Mushroom Grow kits.’ Baffled by the mystery of the process, they both set out on a journey to learn more!

With a combined 20+ years of mushroom growing experience and more than 5000 students taught since 2016, Oliver and Jasper set out on a mission to make learning online mushroom cultivation Easy, Fun, and Exciting!

These two Myconauts did not fit in the traditional academic system, AT ALL. Yet, their thirst for knowledge carried them on a path of life-long learning. With the skillset of self-taught teachers, they aim to make the art and science of mushroom cultivation accessible to everyone aspiring to be a citizen mycologist.

Sacred Mycology

What is the Sacred Mycology movement?

Sacred mycology is about creating meaning and purpose in our lives with the help of mushrooms.

It’s about learning to interact and listen to nature’s wisdom within us and around us.

This wisdom has the potential to help us heal and regenerate ourselves and our environment.

Sacred mushrooms can inspire us to find purpose and a deeply meaningful existence while living here on earth.

We envision a global culture that is educated, conscious, and tolerant towards psychedelic medicines and the people who use them.

Frequently asked questions

Yes, seriously 😊🍄

We do not endorse nor condone the cultivation and use of sacred mushrooms. We are just providing you with the highest quality education on sacred mycology.

There are many places on this planet where laws are flexible when it comes to psychedelic mushrooms. And laws are changing rapidly.

If it’s not yet legal where you live, you can customize your learning experience by starting this training with a (non-psychoactive) mushroom strain of your choice

We will focus on Psilocybe cubensis, the most widely cultivated magic mushroom, in the Sacred mushroom cultivation course.

We understand this is not legally available everywhere. Therefore you can follow the course with edible mushrooms like Oysters or button mushrooms!

This is a step-by-step online video course that you can follow at your own pace.​
Every video lesson, theoretical and practical, is supported by written documentation, sources for additional reading, and some Fungi Academy flair. 😏 You will get access to the complete text at graduation, including many recipes and checklists in a handy PDF bundle. 📚

Mastermind students will also have access to our private online community with fellow students, mycologists, and psychedelic explorers. 🌌
Communal support, like the mycelial network, is the pillar of the Mastermind group. Yet we also host regular live classes with experts, Q&A sessions, and online integration circles.

The course is designed to learn at your own pace. 🙌

The video lessons are prerecorded! We will also record all of the live classes with the Mastermind group so you can watch all of the material whenever it works for you!

The problem with learning on your own is that there is so much information on mushroom cultivation everywhere. Some of it is contradictory, and a lot of it is outdated. Mushroom cultivation in 2020 is easy if you know where to start.

With the right guidance and up-to-date mushroom cultivation methods, it is easy to learn how to grow your very own mushrooms. Edible, medicinal, or psychedelic.

Knowledge and skill go hand in hand in this life-changing practice. The more you cultivate mushrooms, the more you know, the better you get! Mushroom cultivation is a skill that will stay with you for life. It’s a bit like riding a bicycle. Once you learn it, you’ll never forget it. 🚲😉

Absolutely not! 

If you want to become a psychedelic therapist, then you have to go through proper training. This course is not it. And when it comes to becoming “shaman” it’s better to search for people who have a lineage of doing it. Or wear crazy hats.🧙‍♂️

Mushroom cultivation is a fantastic practice that connects you with your food and medicine. It put’s 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 happening!💥
Get ready for a fungal future!🍄🚀

According to the Global Wellness Trend report 2018, 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 mushrooms’ legislation are 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!🙌

To get spores turned into mushrooms is a process that at least takes 8-10 weeks the first time around! The more you practice, the faster this can get!

You are supported in this process every step of the way with 70+ video lessons, 130+ pages of text, checklists, recipes, and additional reading material!


We do not endorse nor condone the cultivation and use of sacred mushrooms. Especially if it is not yet legal where you live, you can customize your learning experience by starting this training with a (non-psychoactive) mushroom strain of your choice. 

We require our students to be 18 years or older. We reserve the right to suspend any students not of age.

We recognize there is a changing tide in the acceptance of sacred mushrooms. More people seek out psychedelic mushroom experiences to heal themselves, boost their creativity, or have fun. 

Our intention with the Sacred Mushroom cultivation course & the Mastermind is to educate responsible adults about all kinds of mushroom cultivation and psychedelic harm reduction.
