This week we meet with Saba Candari. Saba has extensive experience in the wealth management and financial sectors, he is the founder and CEO of Entheo Ventures. His primary focus is to offer business management and financial support to underserved organizations leading the resurgence of plant medicine and psychedelics.
We talk about Saba’s early life arriving in the US at age 7, having to play catchup in a new country, the challenges that followed, and his very intentional journey to become the person he is today. We cover the learnings from his psychedelic experiences and what it took to integrate them back in his life (hint: it wasn’t doing more psychedelics). We talk about making space for yourself, leadership, authenticity and more.
🧠Memorable Quotes 🧠
“Once I went through that journey of being healthier, eating cleaner, not drinking, not doing some of the things that dragged me down, that was really the beginning of my journey.”
“As far as psychedelics go, when the phone rings I pick it up. I have to be called to it or I won’t just do it. If it doesn’t call me, I’m not going to get peer pressured in doing it.”
“Psychedelics are shortcuts, but they are shortcuts to see something. It’s like binoculars. I can see I can get there, it’s true, it exists, I can get from point A to point B but the reality is that you still have to do the work to get to it.”
“Take your time, turn your phone off, take a pause in life and start taking an inventory of yourself. And to me that was more important than running to another ceremony.”
