Chiang Mai Nomad Coffee Club Speech – Meditation, Morning Rituals & Ayahuasca for Healthy Entrepreneurship

By December 22, 2016 No Comments

I finally finished editing the presentation I did a few weeks ago for the Chiang Mai Nomad Coffee club. Added tons of pictures and video b-roll to give it extra visual context.

It was a packed house with 60+ people – overflowing into the staircase and people sitting on the floor – definitely the biggest venue I’ve presented to so far.

It was a bit of challenge to share the lessons learned from the past 4-years of travel into a 25-minute speech.

I wasn’t too nervous this time as I’ve been getting a lot of experience with public speaking lately. However, I am a bit nervous about sharing this talk on YouTube & FB for the rest of the world to see.

Why? Because this stuff is still personal and deals with all sorts of topics that most people probably wouldn’t openly talk about themselves.

But I do it because I strongly believe in changing the public perception of plant medicines & responsible psychedelic usage – which hopefully de-criminalizes substances that benefit society as a whole.

The crowd enjoyed the stories and people came up-to me afterwards with positive feedback. Later on I was also invited to be a podcast guest (The Greg Hung Show) and to be featured on a website (nomadic gear.co)

It’s split up into 3-parts:

Part I – Meditation & Morning Rituals to maintain work-life balance for entrepreneurs

Part II – My experiences with Ayahuasca, San Pedro & Kambo to keep me mentally & emotionally healthy for running my businesses & developing intuition

Part III – Myers-Briggs Type Indicator for self-awareness & business decision making / Q&A

Thank you Johnny FD for giving me the opportunity to share my story & everyone else who came out and supported me.
