Looking to dive deeper into the world of mushrooms?

Have you read Braiding Sweetgrass yet? This incredible book by Robin Wall Kimmerer takes us through the natural world in a beautiful, gentle and thought-provoking way, helping us to see the world through an Indigenous lens. This particular excerpt really spoke to us on all levels, from our brand name and our mission, to the roots of our products.

“Ceremonies transcend the boundaries of the individual and resonate beyond the human realm. In many Indigenous communities, the hems of our ceremonial robes have been unraveled by time and history, but the fabric remains strong. In the dominant society, though, ceremony seems to have withered away.
In a colonist society the ceremonies that endure are not about land; they’re about family and culture, values that are transportable from the old country. To have agency in the world, ceremonies should be reciprocal co-creations, organic in nature, in which the community creates ceremony and the ceremony creates communities. 
Ceremony focuses attention so that attention becomes intention. If you stand together and process a thing before your community, it holds you accountable.”

 

Did we mention she writes incredibly? Taking a cue from this book, we’ll be soon sharing how we will be focusing our brand to be even more intentional, as well as how we will be showing up for community, in a way that acknowledges the land and the people who came before us.

We want to truly practice the art of ceremony, where we engage in real reciprocity and take meaningful actions. Stay tuned, and please, hold us accountable.
