This week we meet with Rick Elliot. Rick grew up in Canada, worked on oil fields to put himself through school and moved to California for a career in software development. He co-founded a tech startup in 2008 which was acquired later. He worked there until recently.
Rick joins us after a long weekend of sacred ceremonies with the powerful psychedelic substances Ayahuasca and Bufo Alvarius. We talk about his spiritual awakening from his first experience with Ayahuasca and the lasting impact it’s had on his relationship with his wife, children, himself, and his happiness. This discussion is full of beautiful insights about parenting, being in the moment and happiness. Enjoy 🙏❤️
🧠Memorable Quotes 🧠
About his first Ayahuasca experience: “It completely changed my perspective and it made me realize my kids, my family, those are the things that are important, and I was far too fixated on some of the things that were getting in the way professionally, like my ego, my desire to feel important or achieve more things.”
Since his first Ayahuasca experience: “I found more moments in the last two years where I’ve been able to be really present with my kids and have amazing moments where I felt super connected with them and the amount of joy just being with them is amazing.”
