Psychedelics are experiencing a renaissance, developing into a tool to help us go through life. On the “New Health Club Podcast” I talk to real innovators, leaders and disrupters from the emerging world of psychedelics.
Welcome to the new world we are operating in now aka the world of ZOOM and Yoga pants all day. In the upcoming podcast our guest is Lars Christian Wilde, President and Co-founder of COMPASS Pathways.
COMPASS is a mental health care company “dedicated to accelerating patient access to evidence-based innovation in mental health”. COMPASS is currently looking into the beneficial effects of psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy for treatment-resistant depression. There are so many questions right now. Will large portions of our society suffer from at least a mild form of PTSD after this current crisis? Will there be a whole new world of psychedelic investors, since we need new tools now more than ever? I loved how Lars explained why psilocybin gummi bears won’t be the future of the psychedelic movement. Also, the Covid-19 crisis might mean:psychedelic-assisted treatment could become more important than ever. Lars also discussed a possible vaccine for mental health disorders that we might have access to in a few years which would be useful in situations such as our current crisis.
I am certainly not your typical psychedelic counterculture person. The only thing I knew about those compounds: strange stories about Timothy Leary, hippies, and other wild stuff, none of that was my thing. I came from the luxury world. I wrote about fancy places, Hollywood, entertainment, fashion, over the top characters. The surface of things. I wrote for Vanity Fair and GQ, interviewed Hollywood People.
As a journalist, I got interested in stories I was hearing about people in Silicon Valley doing micro-doses of LSD or psilocybin and reporting good things. They felt awake, concentrated, rested and calm. At one point I realised, that psychedelics can be a tool for our new times, that has nothing to do with your idea of drugs anymore. I experienced a safe psilocybin journey at the Synthesis retreat in Amsterdam. The so called set and setting, a safe place and safe journey, was right. To me, the experiences was a life changer, in a best possible way.
In 2019 In founded The New Health Club. And this is where it all starts. We would love to invite you to follow us on the road to a neural awareness.
