After a trip to Davos, Ronan sits with the organizers of the "Psychedelic Medicine House of Davos," the first ever psychedelic-focused satellite event in conjunction with the World Economic Forum. Event organizers Marik Hazan, Maria Velkova and Maya Albert join Ronan to discuss what it takes to host an international event openly centered around psychedelics – which are still illegal in many countries around the world. The House aimed to shift perspectives, build credibility, and normalize psychedelics as medicines within the epicenter of the international business community. And by most accounts, it was the talk of the town.The team you will meet on this episode is driven, inspiring, and truly helping the world in our "great awakening."
