Christmas Mushroom

Frozen mushroom in moss.

In the woods this week – a decent frost on the leaves and mosses, when I spotted this bright mushroom, completely iced over after the previous night’s rain.

Suitably “festive” colours?

“In the traditional shamanic cultures, healing bears little relationship to the remission of physical symptoms.  It refers, rather, to becoming whole or in harmony with the community, the planet, and certainly one’s private circumstances”

– Jeanne Achterberg, from Shaman’s Path, editor Gary Doore

Since its the season, I offer you this link on the relationships between Shamanism, reindeer, the fly agaric mushroom, and Santa Claus!

Santa was a Shaman: The influence of fly agaric on the iconography of Father Christmas.”
