Mind Medicine Australia is thrilled to invite you to our screening of Fantastic Fungi on Wednesday the 12th of May 2021 at 6:00pm.

Don’t miss this film! Book your tickets today.

Mycelium is a life preserver, not only for our species, but for so many of the species that inhabit our Earth.

We’re asking you to start this revolution in the ecology of consciousness. Please help us. We can save this planet with your help and the help of Mycelium.

There are currently no medications that have proven effective in dealing with the massive increase in addiction, depression, trauma and suicide.

Psychedelic medicines are showing extraordinary results in clinical trials, and are on the fast track to becoming one of the most transformative tools of our time.

In a world where people feel so deeply disconnected, the use of medications to further detach them may work to dampen the emotions that are experienced, but often provide little relief and no profound insights into the internal experience of life. What science has shown is that psilocybin works to calm the region of the brain called the Default Mode Network and stimulates connections between new or under-utilised regions of the brain.

This stunning film by award-winning director Louie Schwartzberg touches on the ground-breaking work being done at Johns Hopkins, UCLA, New York University and other places. It will open a door to a meaningful and important conversation and exploration into the potential mushrooms offer.

The film also covers topics including innovation, health, wellness and medicine, the environment and biodiversity, foraging, food and cooking, consciousness and spirituality, culture, history and the arts.

How can you help? Watch the film! Bring along friends to watch the film together. Discuss the subject matter with others in your communities, and ask them to do the same.

Schwartzberg’s film quickly proves to be one of the year’s most mind-blowing, soul-cleansing and yes, immensely entertaining triumphs.

More about medicinal psychedelic treatments:

Psychedelic-assisted treatments offer enormous potential in providing a meaningful alternative to current treatments for mental illness. PTSD is a debilitating condition that affects tens of millions of people worldwide, with many more trauma victims diagnosed with comorbid conditions such as depression, anxiety and eating disorders. In recent clinical trials, MDMA has been shown to produce reliable clinical improvements, restoring patient safety and self-agency even for individuals who have suffered with PTSD for many years, and for whom many treatments have failed.

The wave of clinical psychedelic research and regulatory support is rapidly building, with experts forecasting the availability of psychedelic-assisted treatments in the US and EU within the next 2 to 5 years, subject to positive clinical outcomes in large trials that are currently underway.
