A few months ago, I sat down with entrepreneur Robert Bent to talk about his journey from an 'unhappy standard person' to 'meditative psychedelic warrior' as he jokingly refers to the side of the spectrum where people are able to stay in the present moment. While his path seemed to be all laid out through business schools and the world of investment banking, Bent set out on a journey, where he "failed" in numerous ventures and went on epic adventures with the specific purpose to face his fears. Having found himself very talented at making friends and building communities, combined with his interest in wellness, he now uses tools such as hot/cold exposure, meditation, and social connection to facilitate transformative experiences.
