"Amanita muscaria is more than a mushroom. My husband Odin and I have used them nearly every day as a spiritual sacrament, energizer, mood elevator, rejuvenator, medicinal tonic, and visionary guide. For us, Amanita is the Elixir of Life."
Some people try to find ecstasy in a pill. But we've truly found it in Amanita muscaria.
A single Soma adventure can be life-changing. It can literally lift you from the depths of despair and depression and turn you into a living being filled with life, energy, and inspiration.
Ecstasy, euphoria, true vision, enlightenment, joy, healing.
Through trial and error, risking our very lives, we learned to determine potency, dosage and timing. We dared to get to know the spirit of the mushroom and have found the way to Somadise, Heaven on Earth.
As the spiritual essence of the god Soma that was born through the Amanita the life force of God it's like a transfusion of spiritual lifeforce from God.
Today we blended pantheria with phalloides for my blended drink of divine mushroom holiness. Beware, this can only be ceremoniously officiated by a Master Shaman, or you will die.
— Odin Hawk.

Amanita phalloides is one of the most powerful consciousness alternators on Earth. It charges your mind with holy spirit in the form of a mushroom.
It completely blocks your ability to feel psychological or physical pain, anxiety, or fear. When your body is critically injured, you mind can't go into shock. Without pain, fear, anxiety, or shock, you have obtained four supernatural powers. Because only in Heaven can the gods feel no pain, fear, anxiety, or shock.
The spirit of phalloides increases your strength by at least 100%. In the Rig Veda, it says it doubles it. It fills you full of energy — in other words, life — which dramatically increases your endurance, and can triple your aggressiveness.
Amanita phalloides is a death for those unfit to use it! Because only a Grand Master Shamaness or Shaman can, though spiritual telepathy and energy union, perform the ceremony necessary to take this mushroom-god without dying. They must spend years in holy asceticism before taking it.
Beware! Phalloides is harmful to you. So don't use it. Taking phalloides requires a master's degree in the shamanic conquest of Amanita-Soma consciousness, and God.

This wizard is amazing, he doesn't care about the posinous Amanita, what a badass— Anki H.
I wish you much joy and thank you again for your great work.— Ewald. W., PhD.
"[Soma Shamans] can only be referred to as a mycological masterpiece... the most comprehensive and complete book on using the sacred Soma mushroom in the field... may very well be to mycology and culture as great of a discovery as Gordon Wasson's discovery of Psilocybe Mexicana in 1957.— Steven Scott, Cannabis Culture Magazine.
Just a quick email to thank you guys for your sacred work in bringing forward this sacrament... Thanks a lot guys and Lots of Love You U 2!— J.
I have been telling a lot of people about your soma sessions that you did. I really feel that soma is my medicine and since a session I have experimented with soma more and more. I got to know the spirit of soma and to me it is unsurpassed from any other medicine. It's an amazing helper.— P, Santa Cruz.
Your book seems like an excellent guideway to a safe trip. Thanks for your effort to share your experience with the world.— F.K., Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
I bought your book about a year ago, and have reread it several times. The main reason I have for emailing you is to say how happy I am Hawk is still alive and kicking. When I finished the book for the first time, my stomach churned at the idea Hawk's fasting and austerities may have finished him off. My adrenal gland started firing when I found that pic of him modeling the butterfly Soma. You guys are my heroes. I want to end up living life the way you do. So to find the "guru" I thought might have died still going strong made me very happy. Just thought I'd let you guys know.— Captain Bimble.
Only Amanita shaman in North America. Peace.— F.
Kudos on your work on Amanita muscaria in the Americas. Kudos for your work on the preparation of the species. Normally I do not recommend Amanita to others, but i do point those interested its preparation to your pages and books.— John W. Allen
I have now had the opportunity to read Sacred Soma Shamans and I'm amazed by the scope of their personal experience and rigorous historical research.— H.M.
Lots of LOVE and appreciation for your great work and gift on your books. In a world where almost everything is rationalized, hearing and feeling about people living a true connection with Nature in general and Soma in particular is a BLESSING... The reading of your "[Sacred Soma Shamans]" book is truly one of the most beautiful I ever have, beautiful in the way you respect Soma, Mother nature and yourself, which of course is the same at some point :-)— L.M., France.
Hello again. I just wanted to say I loved the Soma Shamans book. It is a rare gem, one of the few books I feel truly privalaged to have read. The ONLY book I know of with the sort of information that I was looking for and so much more.— Peter G.
"In 1979, a religion dedicated to the mushroom was developed. The religion's founder is an individual named Hawk. Hawk was reportedly inspired by partaking of some Amanita muscaria tea on a "magical San Francisco evening." His experience led [him to hunt] down the mushroom to make the "sacred soma," which would become the Eucharist of the new religion... [his wife Venus] has taken on the role of High Priestess. Hawk's website provides a wealth of information about his religion and the sacred mushroom. It is located at www.somashamans.com"

Hello Hawk and Venus,
My name is S. and your book was lent to me by a friend (the version he had was called "Shamans of Amanita") while I was in the Peruvian jungle for the last 3 months- and I must say that I was sad when I had to return it to its owner. I greatly enjoyed your easy to read and information laden book! Not to mention the intense calling I had to learn from Soma.— S.
The knowledge of the Soma Shamans will change the world. May God bless you.– Simone from Italy.
Your opinion means a lot to me because you are the only prophet and mystic out of the masses that I believe.— M.
This is almost certainly the best book on amanita muscaria in existence, at least if you want to learn about how to use the mushroom and what it can do rather than read through hundreds of pages of scholarly research with comparatively little practical information. The authors know what they are talking about from personal experience and in this book they share some of the knowledge they have gained. It is also a fun and entertaining read, filled with the spirit of Soma and divine wisdom.— Reader Review.
To give you a bit of an idea of why I am interested, I am seeking connection with the Divine. That is all. Simple direct connection. To open my heart and entire being to Grace, Love and Presence of Mother-Father-God-Goddess-Divine-Supreme Absolute Being Consciousness. I would like to surrender myself whole-heartedly, and feel that I need some help to do that. My hope is that Soma Medicine Teacher will help me.— P.
THANK YOU... i appreciate greatly what you are doing for our society; it means a great deal to me.– J.V.

From my meditation practice I can say this is soma, and this mushroom is the clean unadulterated god-mind, one mind. It's quite surprising how different it is from psilocybin mushrooms. it is so clean, it seems to be god-mind simple as that. It's such an incomprehensible blessing that such a perfect mushroom exists."— H.
Amanita muscaria's are wonderful, they open the gates of heaven; magic elixer.— C.R.
Many blessings & positive energies to Hawk for voicing the true Angelic message of the Supreme Being. Our world could benefit from the truth.— M.
guru of amanita— Rahul Kumar.
I loved Soma and I appreciate your giving an antidote to Amanita poisoning if accidentally overtaken.— Jane.
I found [Sacred Soma Shamans] very entertaining as well as highly informative on Shamanic Shaman sacramental use of Amanita mushrooms. This book consists of 35 wide ranging chapters, but is easy and quick to read, especially if you already have a basic knowledge of fungi. Whether you’re just interested in someone else’s adventure for entertainment or want some valuable tips on how to collect, prepare and consume Soma, a guide to Soma consciousness is found in this book."– Curt Haney, President for the Mycological Society of San Francisco.
"[Sacred Soma Shamans] & Soma Elixir are two books written by Hawk and Venus, shamanic high priest and priestess of Soma... Hawk and Venus are modern day Soma Sacrificers. They hunt, gather, prepare and sacrifice Amanita Mushrooms for spiritual sacrament, energizer, medicinal, and uplifting tonic, using ancient Shamanic-Priesthood skills. They have dared to get to know the spirit of this mushroom, through extreme experimentation and devoted daily use of Soma for over  years.– Curt Haney, President for the Mycological Society of San Francisco.
