On this episode of the Psychedelic Invest Podcast, host Bruce Eckfeldt is joined by Alex Atwood.
Below is how Alex describes himself on LinkedIn.
I’ve been an entrepreneur since elementary school when I bought and resold candy and bubble gum from the grocery at a 150% markup. Since then, I have been a founder and CEO of four highly successful companies as a purpose-driven leader whose focus is on optimizing human potential. I have served more than 8,000 satisfied customers in staffing, hospitality and facilities management for more than two decades. I’m also an angel investor in firms that help build a better world, as well as a philanthropist with a soft spot for owners and operators of family businesses.
My deep involvement with personal growth and development includes coaching for Landmark Worldwide, subscriber to the Nonviolent Communication philosophy espoused by Marshall Rosenberg, Ph.D. and twice-daily meditation. I plan on pursuing advanced sidhi training, and regularly attend jungle and mountain retreats. Other interests include various modalities of self-exploration such as temazcal, Cacao and plant medicine work, while I consider myself a decent drummer and newfound skateboard enthusiast.
My latest venture is focused on helping businesses RE-OPEN and STAY OPEN during the COVID-19 pandemic by providing effective non-toxic disinfection as a service and guidance on regulatory compliance in the D.C. and Baltimore metro area, so together we can create a safer world. I’m putting displaced hospitality workers back to work by testing and disinfecting the businesses they once served. Learn more at www.sanistaff.com

SoundSelf
SoundSelf knows that therapists and healers are more than just one-size-fits-all practitioners of a system—they’re highly empathetic and creative souls who yearn to better their patients and community. SoundSelf believes these people should have access to the best tools that enhance their practice in a way that is not only safe and effective, but also rewarding and even fun. Their state-of-the-art tools use techniques of ancient origins. They are spiritual technologies, validated by science, and delivered in a compassionate setting by you.
Robin Arnott
Robin Arnott is the founder and CEO of SoundSelf, a digital therapeutic supporting life and mind transformation.
Before founding SoundSelf, Robin was the CEO of Andromeda Entertainment, where he oversaw the distribution of VR experiences that provide psychological fulfillment through embodiment and meditation.
A longstanding public speaker, Robin teaches and advocates for game design principles that facilitate psychological transformation by engaging the body. His work and ideas are featured in Netflix’s "Screenland" docu-series, and the documentary "Game Loading: Rise of the Indies". He has spoken about technology as an awakening agent at the Game Developers’ Conference, Wisdom 2.0, Transformative Technology Conference, The Science of Consciousness, and TEDx Linz.
Sandeep Prakash
Sandeep Prakash is a psychologist, educator, and researcher. My work draws on western psychology and indigenous systems of wellness, such as shamanism, yoga, Buddhism, and non-dual Vedanta philosophy. I completed training in research, depth psychology, eco-psychology, and psychological work with altered states of consciousness during my Master's and Doctoral degrees at the California Institute of Integral Studies. I have extensive experience facilitating transformative events, training, seminars, CE continuing education, graduate-level courses, on topics such as psychedelic integration, yoga psychology, neuropsychology of trauma, nature-based psychological practice, and transformative experience design in Virtual Reality.
My doctoral dissertation research explored cutting-edge virtual reality, or VR, technology for psychological well-being. Using a novel collaborative study design, the research generated qualitative and quantitative data about the long-term use of a VR app-SoundSelf VR-- that induces altered states of consciousness akin to psychedelics, such as LSD or psilocybin.
At SoundSelf, I lead research, medical affairs, and Digital Therapeutic design. I also assist with strategy, marketing, regulatory affairs, and general business processes of a fun, fast-paced, and industry-leading psychedelic health-tech startup.
