Strychnine

What is strychnine and why do people seem to believe that it is in so many different plants and drugs? Has that ever been true? If so, why, when and where? Keeper Trout takes a fun spin through the wacky world of drug deceptions, real and imaginary, in hopes of setting some rumours to rest ...

Embodied Plant Wisdom

The skill of knowing plants through the body is the foundation of traditional plant wisdom throughout the ages. Even knowing very little about specific plants, we are able to identify their medicinal characteristics by tasting, touching and smelling them. Since plants communicate chemically, developing our taste perception allows us to deepen into direct communication with ...

Other key publications include Permaculture: Principles and Pathways Beyond Sustainability ...

Fungal Conservation And Democratising Science

Mycology is the field of science that is most driven by the community. Not only do citizen scientists contribute to taxonomic and ecological research, but they play a vital role in collecting data for the conservation of threatened fungi. Citizen scientists also drive many of innovations in applied mycology including in cultivation, myco-materials and medicinal ...

ABOUT  ENTHEOGENESIS AUSTRALIS

img

Entheogenesis Australis is a charitable, educational organisation established in 2004; we provide opportunities for critical thinking and knowledge sharing on ethnobotanical plants, fungi, nature and sustainability. 

Through our conferences and workshops, we aim to celebrate the culture, art, politics and community around medicine plants in the hope to better wellbeing for humankind and the planet. 

 

Mission Statement - Statement seeds for earth, body, and mind. 

Statement of Purpose - Entheogenesis Australis exists to enhance the Australian natural environment by: 

E – Encouraging the propagation, cultivation, conservation, preservation and sharing of plants and fungi of ethnobotanical significance whilst nurturing botanical environments. 

G – Growing community and developing connections through conversation, events, media and the creative arts, acting as a multidisciplinary nexus for knowledge sharing within the field of Ethnobotany. 

A – Advancing botanical discussion through research, critical thinking, education, creativity, innovation, and awareness about plants, fungi and related compounds with potential beneficial applications for humankind and the natural environment. 



We acknowledge that in Australia, we live and work on stolen Country, never ceded. We acknowledge that this dispossession, from which most in our community continue to benefit materially, causes ongoing trauma to Indigenous people and communities.

We acknowledge that we benefit from Indigenous knowledge and insights, including long relationships with the plants we revere, from around the world. We acknowledge that Indigenous knowledge has often been taken disrespectfully.

We encourage all in our community to learn to do our work "right way", to understand the protocol and to show respect.

EGA endorses the Uluru Statement from the Heart, which calls for a First Nations' Voice to the Australian Parliament, Treaty and Truth. We encourage each and all of our community to take up the invitation in the Uluru Statement to work through Australia's unfinished business.
