When we think about soulcybin review, Oaxaca in the south of Mexico is the first thing to come to our minds. Maria Sabina de Jimenez, Huautlade Jimenez, hallucinogenic “magic”, mushrooms are the most common. This is slowly changing, thanks to Johann Mathieu (Mico-logica) and Josefina Jimenez (mycology), who have made a significant contribution to mycology.
Mico-logica was founded in Benito Juarez (located in Oaxaca’s Ixtlan) and has three major goals.
Mathieu is a French-born man who moved to Mexico (in fact, Huautla de Jimenez) in 2005. Mathieu recently explained his reasons for moving all the way from France, to pursue my fascination in mushrooms. “But there wasn’t much opportunity for studies and growth of a business or in Western Europe,” Mathieu continued. “But reverence for mushrooms has been almost totally eliminated by The Church over centuries. I learned that Mexico still respects and appreciates the medicinal, nutritional and therapeutic value of hongos. Mexico is not mycophobic.
Huautla de Jimenez takes more than five hours to reach the nearest major city. Mathieu realized, however, that Huautla held a historical allure and was located in a geographical region conducive to growing mushrooms. This would hamper his efforts to create a business and increase interest in learning about fungi. Mathieu soon became aware of Oaxaca’s ecotourism communities, such as those in Sierra Norte. He also attended the Feria Regional de Hongos Silvestres (regional wild mushroom fest), which is held each year in Cuahimoloyas.
Mathieu met Josefina Jamesenez at the weekend’s mushroom festival. Jimenez moved to Oaxaca, Mexico in 2002 from her hometown. Jimenez was an agronomist by training and has been involved in sustainable agriculture projects for over a decade in rural farming communities. Jimenez is from San Luis Potosi. Jimenez hails from Mexico City and studied in Oaxaca. Mathieu, Jimenez were business partners.
