Episode 5: William Padilla-Brown on mycoliteracy, self determination, and serving Nature
William Padilla-Brown is a rising star in the world of mycology. He's the founder of MycoSymbiotics, an Environmental Research Laboratory and Decentralized School with a mission to use fungi to better the planet and also the author of what is considered the first book written in English on the cultivation of Cordyceps. He's been called both citizen scientist and urban shaman for his work around psychedelics and psychedelic healing.
In this conversation with Will we cover:
- Will's endeavors to introduce fungal education into schools
- The mushroom that sparked his passion for mycology
- How his experiences with various therapy modalities during his youth prepared him for the psychedelic journey
- Why service to Nature is paramount
- The danger of self-domestication
