Praise for The Wild Kindness

An exuberant endorsement of the use of psychedelics as an instrument of self-discovery. —KIRKUS

Bett Williams is a renegade…this book is a useful tool. —THE ROGUE LITERARY SOCIETY

The Wild Kindness is absolutely electric. It’s not only the subject matter, which is mystical and fascinating. Bett William’s voice is untamed and inspired, full of gonzo humor, ambitious daring and high-vibrating heart. The personal, the political, the spiritual and the unknown come together into a mesmerizing read that is full-on literary fireworks. —MICHELLE TEA, author of ValenciaBlack WaveAstro Baby, and more

On the surface, a book about mycology. Immediately beneath this, a safe trip facilitated by a guide who places herself between heaven and earth, between the fight for love and the fight itself; wholly engaged by both magic and the material plane. —KRISTIN HERSH, singer-songwriter

Bett’s writing has brains, charisma, beauty and wit. —DENNIS COOPER, author of the George Miles cycle

About The Wild Kindness

A funny, lyrically brilliant memoir of learning to grow psychedelic mushrooms and discovering the vast power of mycelium wisdom and medicine.

The Wild Kindness: A Psilocybin Odyssey is the lyrical, unforgettable memoir of Bett Williams’s relationship with psilocybin mushrooms, otherwise known as magic mushrooms. In pursuit of self-healing, she begins experimenting with mushrooms in solitary ceremonies by the fire. Word soon gets out about her New Mexican desert mushroom farm, though, and people arrive in droves. Not long after, the police read her her Miranda Rights, her relationships fall out of whack, and her dog Rosie just might be CIA.

On a quest to find help through the psychedelic community, Bett is led to Cleveland to meet Kai Wingo, an African American leader within a high-dose psilocybin community, and to Huautla de Jiménez, home of well-known, well-respected curandera María Sabina. Back home, Bett begins a solid ritual practice with the help of her partner and friends, bearing in mind the medicine’s indigenous roots and power to transform one’s life.

Amidst the mainstream flood of New Age practices and products, The Wild Kindness: A Psilocybin Odyssey is a dreamlike reminder that psilocybin mushrooms are a medicine of the people, not to be neatly packaged, marketed, or appropriated.
