Danny Nemu is interested in the regenerative powers of nature, both in terms of curing people and bringing degraded land back to life. After getting ill and getting better in the Amazon, he founded RAIN (Regenerative Agroforestry Impact Network), a charity supporting community-led reforestation projects with Indigenous nations, black women in the favela and other marginalised groups in Brazil. His background is in teaching, hypnotherapy and writing (Science Revealed and Neuro-Apocalypse). His future is in the trees.
Paper Presentation – Magickal Mycelia, Networked Intelligence and the Mouldy Way to Grow Your NGO
Psychedelics were traditionally shamanic tools used to protect the tribe – curing illness, finding game, resolving disputes etc. In today’s global village we face different threats but the solutions are the same – collective intelligence, redistribution of resources, and communication across boundaries. What kind of egregore is created when our magick is mycelial, and how can we work with collective intelligence at this fragile moment in our history? How does collective intelligence work, and how can we create a mycelial egregore in the model of marginalised communities to help meet the threats our global village faces today? RAIN is modelled on mycelial networks that know how to share information and resources for collective resilience.
