The Mushroom Community: Conversations with Filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg

inbodied life podcast Nov 16, 2020


A Note For You: This series of conversations came out of the K-Dome, a virtual camp within Burning Man’s digital landscape. I collaborated with my mentor Dr. Phil Wolfson and the Ketamine Research Foundation with its Indra’s Net Coalition to put together over 90 hours of content on psychedelic medicine. I will be sharing some of my favorite hours with you here, and I hope you enjoy them all.

In this conversation, I sit down with my friend, visual artist Louie Schwartzberg. Louie is an award-winning producer, director and cinematographer whose notable career spans more than four decades. His prolific and breathtaking imagery from over 54 countries is featured in films, television shows, documentaries and commercials. We talk about his latest film Fantastic Fungi, and its powerful impact on the world during Covid-19. The film is consistently listed as the number one documentary on Apple TV and among the top ten of all genres.

Listen to our chat to explore what makes this film so compelling for all of us, especially now.

What You Will Learn:
  • How Louie and his film, Fantastic Fungi, catalyzed the underground mushroom movement for good 

  • Why gratitude as a practice is such an important antidote to depression 

  • The importance of community and why practicing models of connection can help keep us alive. Hint: Nothing lives alone  

  • What it means to be an eco-warrior, and learn from the mushroom teacher
