The Magic Mushroom at the End of the World | Katherine MacLean, PhD
It is no secret that humans are facing an epic question with potentially catastrophic consequences: Will enough of us change our way of life in order to save ourselves and our fellow beings on this planet from ultimate destruction? This talk is inspired by the visionary scholarship of Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing (The Mushroom at the End of the World: On the Possibility of Life in Capitalist Ruins) and will explore the role that “magic” (psilocybin) mushrooms can play in helping us answer the questions we face during these turbulent “end times.” Katherine MacLean will trace the development of psilocybin mushroom medicine from its underground, secret, humble beginnings in the hills of what is now called Oaxaca, Mexico through the halls of academia and the social lives of modern Americans, and finally, to its current lofty status as an alleged treasure of the Western corporate pharmacopeia. What is the historical purpose of psilocybin medicine? How have people changed after receiving it? If more people receive this medicine, how might it help (or harm) our future as a species? And most importantly, how can women continue to be stewards, guides, and living examples of a sustainable, satisfying and visionary life alongside our magic mushroom friends?
The Mycelial Brain | Cornelia Cho, MD
Are mushrooms smarter than us? Mushrooms could hold the key to humans having a future on this planet. Fungi were some of the first life forms to make land habitable and they’ve already survived five mass extinctions and will most likely survive several more. How can we tap into and learn from their Mycelial wisdom? Could a deeper understanding of Mycelium change our own brains? Perhaps it could change our current way of thinking and help alter our disastrous and self‐destructive trajectory. Let's stop just asking what fungi can do for us; let's ask what we can do together with fungi. How can we support them in their wisdom? How can we collaborate with one of the major pioneering and enduring life forces on the planet? Join Cornelia in exploring these provocative ideas and their implications.
The Role of Fungi in Invasion and Conservation Biology: Fungi also Invade: When something we love causes trouble | Anne Pringle, PhD
Are you happy to cook with Golden Oysters? Have you noticed they are EVERYWHERE this year? Because we are passionate about fungi and believe they make our world better (and they do!) it can be difficult to equate a fungus like the Golden Oyster with harm. But the truth is Golden Oysters are invasive and may be damaging the forests we love. Come with an open heart and mind to talk about change and what it means for our future. Along the way, I’ll unpack the colonized thinking that continues to dominate our discussions of local biodiversity and talk about how to safeguard our native species.
Flowers and Ashes: Creative Death Rituals for the Modern Woman | Katherine MacLean
In this workshop, Katherine MacLean will explore the complex and invigorating territory of psychedelics, death, and personal transformation. Many of us may have recently lost a loved one. Some of us may have already developed personal rituals and practices that have helped us navigate and even celebrate these losses. This workshop is inspired by Katherine's experience as a psychedelic researcher and guide at Johns Hopkins University and School of Medicine, as well as her experience holding space for her family members during death. She will discuss her own approach to being with dying and death, which draws upon Buddhist mindfulness and compassion meditations, psychedelic use (notably, mushrooms, cactus, and MDMA), and the application of fire and water elements to support the physical transition of life energy before, during and after death. Please note that this workshop is not intended to support illegal activities and does not include ingesting any psychoactive substances. Participants are expected to show up in a clear and sober frame of mind and body. There will be an opportunity for brief, confidential sharing of personal experiences (if participants wish), and Katherine welcomes participants to bring examples of creative death rituals they have used in their own lives.

Introduction to the Norse Runes: A Female-Centered Approach | Falcon River
This workshop offers a female-centered approach to learning about the Elder Futhark runes. The Old European root words from which the word “rune” originates mean “mystery” or, “to whisper.” It has been suggested by many runic scholars that the written form of runes originate in the dendritic patterns found in our own bodies and throughout Nature, from the structure of a tree trunk and its branches to our own circulatory system. The shape, form, and energetic pattern emanated by each rune is rooted in the mysteries of nature from which this ancient alphabet was derived.

Mushrooms for Digestive Health | Linda Conroy
We have long known that beneficial bacteria promote gut and overall immune health. Mounting evidence is now suggesting that fungi also play a crucial role. Collectively termed the mycobiome, gut fungi communities of molds and yeasts are crucial to maintaining gut health and overall immunity. Evidence also suggests other domains of life, such as viruses, also influences metabolism. In this workshop, we will take a deep dive into the microorganisms that we coexist with. We will discuss approaches to enhancing gut and immune health, dealing with health issues related to the mycobiome, and strategies for enlisting or encouraging our funga allies in the interest of overall health.
MycoRestoration Overview | Loni Jean Ronnebaum
We can utilize mushroom’s mycelial powers to decompose or accumulate toxic wastes and pollutants (mycoremediation), catch and reduce pathogens in agricultural and urban watersheds (mycofiltration), control insect populations (mycopesticides), and generally enhance the health of our forests, gardens and local ecosystems (mycoforestry). We will discuss each of these four exciting branches of what Paul Stamets coined “Mycorestoration” in his 2005 book Mycelium Running. We will also cover the cultivation of key species like Oysters and Wine Caps and other new applications for mushroom mycelium to help people and the planet.
Diving Into the Scientific Literature to Answer Your Mycological Questions, from Ecology to Medicine, Species identification to Fungal Evolution | Mariah Rogers
I have heard about turkey tail -- Trametes verisicolor -- being good medicinally. How does it work in our bodies?" "I'm curious about which fungi associate with prairie plants in eastern North America. How can I find out what is already known to make a list of species?" "I knew all about Trichaptum biforme... but now I see there is a species in our area that looks the same! ...Trichaptum subchartaceum. Where can I find out what distinguishes the two? And why are they separate species?" "When did the species we call "truffles" first emerge? How are they related to each other? What do we know about their evolution alongside mammals? "Ever had a question about fungi like this and felt you couldn't possibly approach it yourself? You absolutely can. This presentation and workshop will cover how to seek out academic literature on mycological topics, how to evaluate these different sources of information, and reading with an intent to answer your own questions on fungi. You do not need any background in science to attend. Our goal together will be that we all come away more confident independently researching mycological questions, assessing the evidence, and communicating it to others.

Web Repair & The Rise of the Super Weaver | Robin Gunkel
The Indigenous Futures Collective has written about the rise of the super weaver as a community organizer who spins threads of relationships to work in support of community. This super weaver also performs a key aspect of ecological repair work by helping to reweave the silken strands of reciprocal networks. For settlers or immigrants, this relationship repair work might look like becoming “naturalized to place” as described by Robin Wall Kimmerer. This workshop will explore web repair as a key component to ecological repair work and decolonization. The spider is our guide and an example of how when a web is broken the spider does not patch or repair the web but rather begins reweaving with the silken threads of connection that are already present. In this workshop we will examine decolonization and ecological & relationship repair work as integral aspects of a larger reciprocal restoration.
