Mushrooms would appear to be unlikely candidates to heal our bodies, souls, and planet Earth. Who knew they have an ancient global communication system that detoxifies the planet and creates living environments – putting the internet to shame? Who could have imagined that Santa Claus is dressed to look like a red and white mushroom and that he flies around the world on reindeer high on fungi!

The films, books, videos, article, and podcast linked below show that there is a LOT more to the story of mushrooms than most people realize.  These humble heroes are finally taking the stage now with a beautiful new film and book that showcase their many wonders.

See the trailer below for the 2019 Fantastic Fungi film by Paul Stamets and filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg. The film was 13 years in the making and won the 2019 Audience Award for Documentary Feature at the Maui Film Festival
