  • Hi Asha and Djai,
    What a lovely podcast! Usually I get a bit bored with podcasts over 1 hour but here I wanted to keep hanging out with you ☺️…so well articulated, nuanced, “thought through” and thoroughly reflected upon and at the same time infused with empathy, warmth and respect – thank you!

    Asha, you know I started my first microdosing experience Nov 9 last year and now I have recently upgraded to the combo truffles, Lion’s Mane and Niacin. I will book a single session with you to discuss how things are evolving, especially with regards to a big turning point in my life.

    And Djai, you were talking about your utopian dream of giving people the opportunity to have a psychedelic experience in a safe environment including the integration afterwards. I have been looking for that kind of opportunity for some time now. I’m quite new to this; apart from an Ayahuasca ceremony last year, I have not taken any other substances since I didn’t trust the setting. With your background and personality, you inspired total trust and I would love to be able to take that journey under your control, as a step on my way towards an even more authentic life.

    I live in Brussels but could easily come to Amsterdam for a weekend say, should that be possible to arrange. Payment would be taken care of in advance for maximum commitment from my side.

    At any rate, thank you both of you again for being such trustworthy partners with high quality standards for everything: substances, processes and interaction with people. Your role and functions are invaluable and I wish you much joy and fulfillment in everything you do!

    With gratitude,

      Community members like you are is really the guiding light for everything that we do and feel so pleased that we can be of service.

      Not only am I looking forward to our next catch up, but also to the release of our conversation on our podcast channel.

      Big hugs!

      Asha ✨
