Captain Hugh T Alkemi primary author of MushroomShaman.com, was first introduced to astrology and card reading in his early teens while in the honors math and science programs. With practice, he realized that different systems of astrology calculated opposing assessments of personality in humans, and some could be considered less accurate than others. To remedy this, he sought out tools of shamanic divination like Tarot cards (which were familiar to his family). To friends, the Captain is an alchemist adept and shamanic minister with a passion for community leadership. From San Diego, he trained as a yoga and meditation teacher by the age of 20 in Encinitas, CA.
After a Native Ceremony in 2006, the Captain began studying shamanism and “Soma” (a lost psychoactive brew made for seers to use in ritual) as the origin of Yoga in Ancient India and Vedic scripture. Around the same time Hugh became more seriously introduced to Human Design, Astronomy, Jyotish, and the Cards of Destiny system. While apprenticing in Ethnobotany and Herbalism with local teacher Dennis Green-Medicine-Deer, Hugh continued to teach Yoga to people of all skill levels and ages. After about nine years of teaching the Yogic Arts, Hugh has come to additionally specialize in Luck, Astrology, divination, Power Animal work, and Journeywork.
