Product Details


“Mushrooms emerge from beneath the forest soil and from the trunks of old and dead trees—their mycelia decompose organic wastes and bring forth fruiting bodies that can heal us, nourish us, or transform our consciousness. In this beautiful book, Robert Dale Rogers outlines the ways in which the vibrational medicine of mushrooms can do the same thing for the human spirit—metabolizing what we hide in the shadows and helping us to bring forth the fruit of our own unique essences. Drawing on Rogers’s decades of experience as an herbalist and his encyclopedic knowledge of alchemy, flower essences, and  fungal ecology and pharmacology, Mushroom Essences is simultaneously infused with magic and eminently practical: a comprehensive guide to a new form of medicine.”—Sean Donahue, traditional herbalist and faculty member, Pacific Rim College

“I love this book. It is simple, easy to read, and user friendly, with case studies to illustrate the potential impact of each mushroom essence and a a ready-to-use repertory. Robert Rogers provides an astute explanation of how each of us not only has a dark side or shadow side but must embrace it, not only for our own healing but for the healing of our planet.”—Sabina Pettitt, Dr. TCM, cocreator of Pacific Essences® 

“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
“If we are to reach our fullest potential, we must learn about and integrate the shadow. As difficult as this journey can be, we have been provided the means to be supported throughout it: the fungi. Robert Rogers’s work with their intelligence in the form of “essences” to augment this challenging journey is a poignant eye-opener—one many of us may not be ready for, but one we dearly need. Mushroom Essences provides a valuable toolkit for anyone on the herbal path towards psychospiritual health.”—James W. Jesso, author of True Light Of Darkness

“Soul connection, transformation, healing the traumatized psyche—these are the purview of mushroom essences. They transmute the dark elements of our injured minds and spirits to experiences and expressions of the authentic, joyous life that is our birthright. They speak healing truths to the body, mind, and spirit without harm or pain. In Mushroom Essences Robert Rogers gives us clear knowledge, means, and methods for personal freedom and wholeness.”—Sandra Dutreau Williams, PhD, founder and director of Mushrooms for Well Being Foundation
