About this Event
The Mushroom Experience as The Wild Kindness: In conversation with Bett Williams.
Bett Williams is the author of The Wild Kindness, a Psilocybin Odyssey, which is quite the poetic romp through psychedelic space, filled with pearls amidst the mycelium of magic and mayhem that happen when having a mushroom for an ally.
We explore the art of the journey as the journey in this conversation. In this ongoing psychedelic renaissance milieu, can the mushroom experience open us to the mysteries of being alive with empathy and improved quality of life? What and how do the mushrooms tell us? Are there ways to work with them and honor their spirt and connections to other worlds in the shamanic sense? If art is a joyful expression of life, can the mushrooms bring more art into our lives and artistic expressions?
We explore these thoughts and more in this conversation between Bett Williams and Paul Antico, Managing Director of Psychedelia Integration. Be sure to get a copy of Bett’s book and read it for more insight into the mushroom experience, before or after this conversation. But be prepared, because it’s more than a journey, it’s an odyssey!
Will the zeitgeist of our times be in the shape of a mushroom?
