Recently, we attended “Superpower of Medicinal Mushrooms” with Cassie Rhea! Rhea brought a refreshing insight to the power of mushrooms, not only from just a nutritional or medicinal perspective, but also from esoteric perspective on these mysterious fungi. Rhea explains how, “mushrooms obtain nutrients through symbiotic, mutually beneficial relationship with trees,” making them “master communicators;” harmonizers; soil makers; decomposers; functional, and health-enhancing super fungi.” Mushrooms function in nature as “earth networkers” by connecting with the trees to communicate to help fight diseases in nature and send nutrients when needed.
Rhea called mushrooms as living in a “karma free zone,” due to very complex underground-network & are an integral part of the creation and development of our ecosystem. “As it turns out, animals and fungi share a common ancestor and branched away from plants at some point about 1.1 billion years ago. It was only later that animals and fungi separated on the genealogical tree of life, making mushrooms more closely related to humans than plants” (Scienceabc).
Held at the Roots of the Sun in the Forest Room in St. Petersburg Rhea served a delicious chai, reish mushroom tea!
