The Fungal Dirt Web

Hidden under our feet is an information highway made of fungi that allows plants to communicate and support each other.
Ebony Hoorn has adapted the practice of Yoga Nidra to create a guided meditation that explores the perspective of the Mycelium Network and its fruiting body, the Mushroom. Aiming to increase the listener's empathy with more-than-human worlds and recognise our interconnectedness with the rest of nature, we will explore the unseen through our consciousness. This practice draws our attention inwards, in effect using our senses as a microscope to visualise, listen and become one with the unseen world.
