Natasja with Jasper Degenaars on Mushrooms, Psychedelics and Human Tribalism

Meet Jasper Degenaars is the Chief Educational Officer of Fungi Academy and the co-founder of the Sacred Mycology Online School. The first fungi-focused online school that teaches individuals how to grow, and work with Sacred Mushrooms anywhere in the world. He has taught over 2000 people how to successfully grow all kinds of mushrooms. Born and raised in the Netherlands he knows the potential of a legal psychedelic landscape where the cultivation and consumption of Psychoactive substances are not punished by law. He believes that Sacred Mushrooms have the potential to deepen our connection with nature, ourselves, and our communities.
