Our team of shroomers celebrates and covers how fungi shape our world.

We believe in the power of mushrooms and their expansive versatility in natural medicine and psychological healing. Fungi’s long-celebrated ability to make us feel better is felt in the body and the mind, from boosting our immune system to reducing anxiety and depression.

Mushrooms have the power to make a real difference in our lives. We believe that education and awareness is the missing piece regarding the adoption of mushrooms and other fungi into everyday routines despite their international prevalence.

Mushrooms are rooted firmly in each continent’s history. The Mayans and Aztecs incorporated them into spiritual rituals. The Ajumawi tribe of Northern California uses mushrooms as part of religious healing ceremonies. Siberian Shamans may very well be the original Santa Clauses. African tribes like the Yoruba and those along the Ivory Coast use mushrooms in ceremonial healing. Psychedelic spirituality festivals in Hindu and Buddhist cultures access higher experiences of being with mushrooms. Traditional Chinese Medicine has the longest documented history of medicinal mushroom use.

We consult with medical experts and those rooted ancestrally in mushroom use for perspective, context, and fact. As an editorial team, we are committed to accuracy and sharing reliable information about the benefits of fungi, as well as dispelling myths and misinformation about the properties and the origin stories of mushrooms.

The wood wide web under our feet is about connection. We’re fostering a community of shroomers who are passionate about fungi and their potential to change the world.
