In this innovative contribution to the field of energy medicine, experienced mycologist and herbalist Robert Rogers offers an extensive guide to healing a range of physical, emotional, and psychological conditions with mushroom essences. Similar to flower essences, but made under a lunar cycle, mushroom essences work subtly to bring deep healing to the mind and body; they are particularly well suited for working with the “shadow” or unintegrated parts of the psyche. The book is organized as an easy-to-use alphabetical reference, with entries that outline how to create each essence, indications for usage, and healing effects. Along the way, Rogers provides enlivening stories of his personal experience using these remedies in clinical practice. A profound exploration of both the practical and mythopoetic qualities of the mushroom, this is a must-have for anyone interested in plant medicine, mycology, personal healing, or depth psychology.

Introduction to Mushroom Essences with Robert Rogers
Mushroom Essences by Robert Rogers Reviews:
“In Mushroom Essences, Robert Rogers points out how mushroom essences help us work with our shadow side and deal with the depths of human suffering and despair—something we must come to grips with on a worldwide level. This book is a must-read in order for us, as humans, to take up our rightful place within nature as true stewards instead of mere shadows of this honored position.”—Pam Montgomery, author of Partner Earth: A Spiritual Ecology and Plant Spirit Healing: A Guide to Working with Plant Consciousness
“Charting new territory and going where no one else has gone before always takes special courage and oversight. Within the realm of vibrational preparations, mushrooms and lichens have hitherto been almost entirely ignored. With his remarkable research, Robert Rogers gifts us with unprecedented insight into a neglected corner of energy medicine. Rogers presents several novel ways of essence preparation, showing his deep and sensitive communion with nature. Detailing the indications and uses of forty-eight new essences backed up with case histories, he poetically weaves together this must-read source of mushroom wisdom.”—Julia Graves, author of The Language of Plants
