i'm not sure about religious gatherings, other than mabey that of The Curch of the Tree of Life, but that's amanita muscaria. I know of a lot of hippy gatherings though. They are not specifically "Mushroom Gatherings" but they are gatherings where there are a lot of mushroom's being consumed. A friend of mine once went to a harvest fest and told me there was a guy there with a garbage bag full of shrooms in the back of his truck and he was letting anybody and everybody take some, $5 a handfull. You can get a lot of shrooms in a handfull. Now that was a harvestfest, not a mushroom gathering in the structured organized sense, but if you consider a few hundred hippies shrooming in a corn field a mushroom gathering, then yeah, i know of a few.

The Church of the Tree of Life was leonard Enos' church and that was for Psilocybe shrooms as was his book, the first field guide which Identified PNW shrooms, most of which was copied form the article by Singetr and Smith in Mycologia vol. 50 in 1958. The book came out in 1971. Sold five thousand copies only with water colored renditions. He was the the church of the Tree of Life.

Now if yu are on the Island of Koh Phangan, every month during the full moon there are between 6,000 to 10,000 people friend on shrooms and a few on x.

This party is wrold famous. There is Goa in India which has a similar full moon drug party and then the Hindi village of Tamilnadu int he Western Ghat mountains of the East Cost of India. That is know as Mushroom City. The locals sell them to the toourists.

ANd now the Phillipine Isialnds has shroom festivals for tourists iat some resort areas.

Are there any shroom/hippy/drug festivals around London, England? I'm going there this summer, I want something interesting - not necessarily drug related, but that'd be nice  :smile:

that's of the coast of thialand, right? i think i know what you are talking about.

about the church of the tree of life, i must be thinking about something diferent, because what i have in mind is certainly an active church that holds amanita muscaria as it's sacrament. i thought it was the church of the tree of life, and that made sense to me because of the evergreen thing, but mabey i just have the wording wrong or something, if i'm wrong then the name is pretty close to that.

Sorry, apparently I have not posted the information yet. I have a lot of news items but i am waiting on 13 articles form UK newspapers before I put the stonehedge festival in. Which I think one cannot have now.
here inthe meantime is another festival ffrom Wales which AS I understand it istill goes on.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

The Sunday Observer</font></B><FONT color=yellow><BR>
September 14, 1980, Page 3.<BR>
<BR>
<B>Festival of the Hippies</B><BR>
<BR>
The tiny mushrooms known as 'psillys' because of the mind-bending psylocybin
they contain, are being plucked like daises from the hillsides at Pontyhydygroes,
in Mid-Wales.<BR>
<BR>
They are the reson why Indian TeePees have been erected on a gentle bend
in the River Ystwyth as 400 celebrate a free drug festival watched by
bemused police and apprehensive locals.<BR>
<BR>
Although the mini-mushroom has an effect similar to LSD and can produce
hallucinations, it is quite legal to possess it. Police who have mounted
stringent road blocks to check on 'the bloody queer folk' flocking to
the festival admit they can't arrest the mushroom pickers.<BR>
<BR>
They are more concerned with the plethora of other drugs such as hashish,
LSD and even heroin they suspect to be in the wigwams on the alluvian
plain surrounded by mountains. Extra police were still outnumbered 20
to one.<BR>
<BR>
Inside the festival there is a gentle carnnival atmosphere. Food and mushrooms
are shared. The Tibetan Ukranian Mountain Troupe bus can provide you with
a latrine shovel and food and magic mushrooms.<BR>
<BR>
The drug squad--both of them--gave up trying to 'trepass' on the site.
One police car was driven off in a barrage of stones.<BR>
<BR>
An 11-year-old girl was selling 'Mrs Normal's hash cakes" and raised the
price from 1 pound to 2 pounds each when demand increased from hippies
arriving in Chevette vans and battered VW Beetles.<BR>
<BR>
The festival is possibly the only meeting place of the hard core of 'new
Gypsies' who travel with horse and cart and erect covered wagon-shaped
tents called 'benders' from bent over saplings.<BR>
<BR>
Many at the festival feel that the magic mushroom could lead to the return
of the hippies as an important movement. The mushrooms are more potent
than alcohol and free, as against the 50 pounds an ounce a drug user pays
for hashish.<BR>
<BR>
'I suppose you could call it a hippy cottage industry' says Ber, one of
the festival's leaders; sipping coffee in his bender.<BR>
<BR>
'A lot of people come here to pick mushrooms to sell. WE know quite a
few of them. The market for them isn't in this country but on the continent,
in Holland and Germany.'<BR>
<BR>
The mushrooms sell from 3 pounds to 4 pounds a gramme. In Germany it can
be as much as 10 pounds a gramme.<BR>
<BR>
Bev, age 33, who is married to a cheerful women called Del, is dressed
in a grey jumpsuit with an Arab head scarf.<BR>
<BR>
'The strange thing is that these things have never really caugtht on,'
he grins. 'the Beatniks used them, buit its never really been a popular
thing.' At the festival it is very, very popular; mushroom quiche suddenly
takes on a different meaning.<BR>
<BR>
What makes Bev and the others turn nasty is what they see as constant
police harrassment.<BR>
<BR>
When I went on a mushroom hunt a young drugs squad detective in a red
Rover car told me he would like to expose the film in my camera, if I
took pictures of other uniformed policemen searching the van in front.<BR>
<BR>
On a mushroom hunt the atmosphere is similar to apple scrumping, where
more are eaten then kept. 'you have to pinch the stalks at the bottom
to stop them turning blue,' said an elfin creature called Min.<BR>
<BR>
'We are going to have a real problem getting them back,' she said. 'They
will search the van for other drugs and then go through everything from
tax disc to tyres; they wouldn't do that to you.'<BR>
<BR>
Pete, aged 36, had lived on the road all his working life and is a proud
grandfather. He is very angry that outsiders, as he sees them, will not
leave the festival alone.<BR>
<BR>
'People ay, how can you bring up children like this,' said Pete. 'But
our children are happy and healthy, and we care more for them than people
who put theirs in boxes called houses.' A group nearby passed round a
pipe of hash.<BR>
<BR>
The reaction of the villagers in next door Pontrhydygroes is mixed.<BR>
<BR>
'I won't serve them,' said landlord David Evans of the Miners Arms. 'I
want them to go. But Mrs. Corris Davies of the post office, is glad of
the trade.<BR>
<BR>
Inspector Terry Adams of Aberystwyth police station, pointed out that
the police were not stopping people because of the mushrooms." 'WE just
like to know what's happening on our patch. A lot of these people have
commited controlled drugs offences."<BR>
<BR>
Inspecitr Adams said there had been 15 arrests.<BR>
<BR>
'What's the hit like?' a pretty young policewomen asked a hippy girl.
'What do the mushrooms do?'<BR>
<BR>
The girl ignored her--she was about the serious business of taking her
pet toad for a walk on a rainbow coloured cosmic leash and the policewomen
was not to know [what the mushroms were like].</FONT>

hehehe AWESOME, that sounds fun AND funny! All these neo-Gypsies and strange folk... too bad it's in the fall. I'm going to London in mid-July, for about 2 weeks. Are mushrooms still legal in UK? Somehow I think not...

They are still legal to possess and grow as long as they are fresh.

There is a party about an hour and a half north of toronto every july. it's in a big field behind a camp ground. Five bucks a night to pitch a tent and everyone just shrooms all night in the forest. This is the Ninth year it's being held. I've been to this a few years in a row and it's ussualy BYOM and BYOF and an awsome time.
Any body from the T.dot out there?
