Oliver Merivee is one of the founding members and a cultivation instructor at Fungi Academy, an intentional co-living space and an international mushroom school in Guatemala. Originally born in Estonia, as soon as he held an adult passport Oliver left and embarked on a worldwide journey for over five years to explore himself, new cultures, and ideas. His relationship with fungi began when he discovered psilocybe mushrooms and experienced their transformative power. Now he is passionate about all types of mushrooms, and he has been teaching hundreds of people how to cultivate their own. Oliver continues to work intentionally with psychedelics and in the summer of 2017, he overcame a powerful addiction to tobacco through a magic mushroom ceremony. He is the global ambassador and speaker for 920 coalition, an organization dedicated to psilocybe mushroom related education, harm reduction, and healing. Oliver brought his passions for travel and fungi together when he recently coordinated a successful crowdfunding campaign to hold Fungi Bus tours in Mexico and Guatemala spreading awareness of the benefits of mushrooms. Outside of his work with fungi, Oliver continues to travel around the world and telling stories as a videographer.
