Format: Paperback
Finally, we have post baby-boom author with the authority and integrity of McKenna to talk about altered concsciousness. This material is more of a general orientation into modes of thought, consciousness, and perspectives used by mystics, shamans, knowers, etc. This is not a technical book. But there is enough here on insight and orientation alone to make it an almost required resource for anyone researching mystical experiences. If you are new to the spiritual path or mystical studies then there is much more than a pinch[beck] of good information here. Much of the authors music is also good expecially Shaman's Path.

I remember a Terrance McKenna comment that went something like-- "If you want to work with psychedelics, the first place you should go is a library." Unfortunately, back in the 60's there was nothing to speak of in any library. So psychedelics exploded into the spiritual vacuum of social club Christianity, creating a backlash of fear and loathing. Bit by bit, this situation is being rectified with books like Mushroom Wisdom. This book is a must for anyone considering following the arduous spiritual path of working with Plant Allies.

I have never come across a book like this before. This is a very direct explanation of what can happen when interacting with psychedelic mushrooms. The author takes a spiritual and scholarly approach, prefering to suggest helpful scenarios with the mushroom than glorify them as some sort of mind-game drug. I appreciate that he does not leave his predecessors (Leary, Metzner, McKenna, etc) in the dust AND that is book is not just a synthesis of their writings. He does mention things like "set & setting" and "novelty", but sparingly and respectfully. You can tell some work had to go in to this and he chose to let this book reflect his work and vision.

Chapters on understanding the procession of potential experiences and working with potentially difficult experiences are laid out in a logical fashion. He also makes a very respectable go at helping the reader to understand the difference between a Shaman and someone who uses shamanic practices/tools.

I whole heartedly reccomend this book to anyone who has decided to engage any entheogens in a mindful way. Some of the techniques in here would obviously apply to DMT, Aya, LSD, and some other experiences; however, the main focus and intent is the mushroom experience.

i am still currently reading this book and loving it.well thought out and very interesting.not your typical book on magic mushrooms.it goes well beyond the realms of explaining the spiritual use of our little fungus buddies.not a how to grow guide which makes it extra special.this book is a spiritual guide.another thing i will point out is the art work contained within is exceptional.i recommend this book to anyone interested in self spirituality and guidance.great job martin.peace.

If typos and repetition bother you, then move on and come back later after the author has a chance to fix the long, long list of typos.

Yup, repetition gets old quick. Seriously, the number of typos in this manuscript is beyond ridiculous.

Other than the typos around every page corner, I found the content satisfying and worth the price for those seeking some entheogen context in their spiritual journey.

All the positive reviews written about this book prior to mine is so true.
This book should be among the primary books that spiritual workers desire in their collection of "knowledge", if they are contemplating experiencing shrooms. It is well written and very informative. Easy to understand. Note: There are typographical errors in the book, but that is not important. What is most important is the knowledge. Best wishes! :-)
