Into the MycoVerse: An Immersion Talk on Beneficial and Magic Mushrooms


August 21st, 7:00pm–9:00pm
The Robert and Judi Newman Center for the Performing Arts
University of Denver
2199 S University Blvd
Denver, CO 80208


Join Paul for an informative talk on mushrooms that aims to deepen your understanding and respect for the organisms that exist under every footstep.

His talk covers a range of mushroom species and new research showing how mushrooms can help the health of people and planet. Habitats have immune systems, just like people, and mushrooms are cellular bridges between the two. Our close evolutionary relationship to fungi can be the basis for novel pairings in the microbiome that lead to greater sustainability and immune enhancement. Join Paul for this journey into the MycoVerse, deepening our understanding of our planet and ourselves along the way.

Tickets will be available for purchase soon.
