To celebrate the UK launch of Merlin Sheldrake’s book Entangled Life, we’ll be speaking with him and fellow mushroom experts Darren Springer and David Satori.

Fungi throw our concepts of individuality and even intelligence into question. They are metabolic masters, earth makers, and key players in most of life’s processes. They can alter our consciousness, heal our bodies, and even help us remediate environmental disaster. Indeed, they provide a key to understanding the planet on which we live, and the ways we think, feel, and behave.

Join us for a fascinating discussion on how fungi make our worlds, change our minds and shape our future…
