Mushroom Essences: Vibrational Healing from the Kingdom Fungi

Mushroom Essences: Vibrational Healing from the Kingdom Fungi Lowest new price: $11.66

List price: $19.95
Author: Robert Rogers

In this innovative contribution to the field of energy medicine, experienced mycologist and herbalist Robert Rogers offers an extensive guide to healing a range of physical, emotional, and psychological conditions with mushroom essences. Similar to flower essences, but made under a lunar cycle, mushroom essences work subtly to bring deep healing to the mind and body; they are particularly well suited for working with the “shadow” or unintegrated parts of the psyche. The book is organized as an easy-to-use alphabetical reference, with entries that outline how to create each essence, indications for usage, and healing effects. Along the way, Rogers provides enlivening stories of his personal experience using these remedies in clinical practice. A profound exploration of both the practical and mythopoetic qualities of the mushroom, this is a must-have for anyone interested in plant medicine, mycology, personal healing, or depth psychology.

Tricholomas of North America: A Mushroom Field Guide (Corrie Herring Hooks Series)

Tricholomas of North America: A Mushroom Field Guide (Corrie Herring Hooks Series) Lowest new price: $19.13
Lowest used price: $21.55
List price: $29.95
Author: Alan E. Bessette

More than 100 mushrooms in the genus Tricholoma have been reported in North America. Most are relatively large, showy mushrooms that grow on the ground near many species of temperate forest trees, both hardwoods and conifers. They typically fruit from late summer through early winter or even into spring in warmer areas. Some are fine edibles, including the matsutake. Others are inedible or even poisonous.

Filling the gap between technical publications and the limited representation of Tricholomas in general mushroom field guides, this book is the first comprehensive guide to North American Tricholomas. It contains more than 170 of the best documentary photographs available, often with more than one image of a species to illustrate the dramatic variation exhibited by many Tricholomas. The species descriptions provide extensive identification information including scientific and common names, macroscopic and microscopic features, occurrence/habit, edibility, and a comment section that addresses such things as synonomy, comparisons with similar species, varietial differences, explanations of species' epithets, and other useful or interesting information. In addition, the authors provide a general introduction to Tricholomas that discusses identification features, ecology, simple chemical tests (for identification), and how to use the keys provided in this book.
