Hi everyone!
I live in the north of Sweden, where some years Amanita shows up everywhere. It's so nice to know It's there just below the surface of our little patch of forest.

I've been involved in Shamanic work for about 35 years but only now feel ready to start listening to these particular beings. My focus is going to be on incorporating them into the drum journeys and healing that I already do alone and with my local Blotlag.

I listened to Amanita Dreamer on the Medicine Stories podcast and the whole story blew me away. As soon as I ordered some caps I felt like they were already changing my life. I watched a number of videos, including the one about raw for ADHD and started micro doses the size of a quarter of my pinky nail. It has only been 3 days but it is already making a difference. I took a nap after my 2nd dose and dreamed of floating around a room while sitting cross legged. My friends were encouraging me to do it and I didn't think it was possible, but I learned how. I woke up with the feeling I had learned a new skill.

My main concern at the moment is not letting my dried stash get soggy. Is that bound to happen? Any tips for keeping them dry? Can I do a cold water extraction to preserve the ibo and prevent the caps from going bad before getting a chance to use them all. I am taking very miniscule amounts.

I keep my dried 'shrooms wrapped in a piece of net curtain fabric, in a sealed container which is one-third filled with dry rice.

Hi Everybody!

I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I just learned about AM a few days ago and am very excited about trying it.
In the past I have felt a special bond with psilosybe mushrooms but they no longer have much of an effect for me because I take SSRI antidepressants.
I have felt so STUCK for years and I'm hoping this is the path to take.
I learned that AM variant guessowii grows reasonably close to me! One of my hopes is to find someone to forage with.

I am ready for this ☮️

Arktos in my case refers to the bear, nothing else.

Hi Everyone,
I am in North America, Great Lakes Region.

Research on remedies for depression and anxiety brought me here. I got more interested in plants during the shut down phase of the pandemic. For example, what lawn "weeds" are edible. I was also trying to find out why so many mushrooms were growing in our yard. As we all know, one thing leads us to another.

At some point I started researching mushrooms and voila!
! here I am.

Thank you to Amanita Dreamer for starting this forum. And Thanks to all who contribute.

I think many of us in the States were taught to fear mushrooms.

Another thing I noticed is that people rightly frequently credit Gordon Wasson for bringing our attention to mushrooms in a different way. I believe his wife Valentina Pavlovna Wasson, a doctor, deserves half the credit as well.

Hello everybody! My name is Tobbe and I live in the northwestern part of Jamtland Sweden. I'm 50 years old and I'm diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (asperger?) and I propably also have ADD. Right now also very bad sleep.Other than that, I also struggle with an alcohol addiction.

I'm a newbie when it comes to Amanita Muscaria, but I've tried it two times. The effects were ok propably because of my bad preparation of it, but I know AM has so much more to give if you really get into it! Especially the part when it comes to alcohol and nicotine addiction. Like deep level healing in your life.

I'm looking forward to follow more of your posts and post myself! :)

Take care! /Tobbe

Hi Everyone.

My name is Andree, I am 43 years old, I live in Gothenburg, Sweden.

I am an avid YouTuber and I found the video, The Misunderstood Magical Mushroom ( which featured amanitadreamer.

I was recently diagnosed with bipolar and have struggled with anxiety and depression and PTS since my late teens.

I have been on many medications in my life but nothing that would really help. And I always stopped taking them because of the many drawbacks they have in combination that they never really help me with my core issues. I have also tried many of the "natural" things you get recommended when you have this kind of problem, but it's like trying to fix a broken bone with exercise, that might help after the bone has been plastered and healed, but it won't help while the bone is of, if you get my drift. In the end, I just isolate myself and feel kind of worthless. At some point, I started taking benzos, and that did give me relief at the beginning but spiraled out of control and I started taking massive amounts. At a certain point I could not continue taking them and took a flight to another country with no benzos at my disposal, big mistake, almost died, and ended up in the hospital, not pretty. I kicked the habit but for the last 4 years, I have been really struggling with the aftermath, basically hating myself.

Things have got much better lately though, I started walking in the woods and came close to nature. Somehow I feel I kind of needed to do all this journey to find my way back to nature. I am kind of a technology freak. I was a computer programmer and I love all things electronic, it fascinates me, it's like magic. I also do electronic music, I thinker with electronics, etc, basically everything electronics.


I just started microdosing and I really hope it can help me with my depression, PTS, and anxiety. thought I would share some other posts about that journey.

Thank you amanitadreamer!
