Getting a thread going to have Educators be in touch and sharing ideas for student curriculum and to support each other across the world with the growth of Fungi in the classroom from K-University and beyond.October 16, 2021 at 8:41 pm #6136TomParticipant
I would be interested in hearing from other educators too. I direct a community music school in Illinois. Our program centralizes ensemble-playing, and individual lessons prioritize musical ensemble techniques; we have a faculty of 26 teaching artists in a wide range of music disciplines; we recognize that community mental health, environmental sustainability, aesthetics, and education in creative techniques are interrelated, and since our founding in 2006 we have been groping our way toward a music eduction model that can keep the large picture front and center. Music ed is a notoriously moribund field (think of the mean piano teacher who slaps fingers, or the exhausted middle school instructor who tries to teach rounds to kids who rap on the playground.) I am interested in communicating with other educators who may incorporate a psychedelic-inspired worldview into their work. Thanks!October 17, 2021 at 5:13 pm #6280SylvieParticipant
I am the founder and director of The Cicada Institute which is a comprehensive retreat space/eco-village and climate change think tank for ages 17-33 ( though all are welcome). We do experiential learning for existential issues by utilization of many ancient practices such as herbalism, permaculture, wilderness therapy, mindfulness/awareness, depth psychology, eco- building skills, multigenerational place based wisdom and more. Think Foxfire meets Hogwarts. We have 3 campuses now between St. Pete, FL and Asheville,NC and are heading towards research studies for psychedelic-assisted wilderness therapy effectiveness for this population. We would love to connect to this network as an healthy attachment/development resource in the world of education. http://www.cicadainstitute.comOctober 18, 2021 at 5:58 pm #6581BenuParticipant
I am currently creating a therapy farm and seed saving school based in indigenous agricultural practices specifically addressing BIPOC generational trauma in Colorado. I am looking for funding, networking and programming for 6th grade to adults/elderly/disabled/veterans with an emphasis in elder > youth mentorship. Would love to connect with any of you in the community to building a safe space for BIPOC. My LinkedIn profile is: https://www.linkedin.com/in/benubius/
