Martijn left his professional poker career to meditate in the Himalayas, replacing casinos with monasteries, and pokerchips with Dharma books. Returning home, he studied interdisciplinary science and philosophy (phenomenology in particular), before immersing himself into the shamanistic practices of the Amazon. A curious explorer, Martijn attempts to bridge entrepreneurship with being a Bodhisattva. At this point in time, he is the Executive Director of Synthesis, the world’s first legal psychedelic retreat to be able to make claims for the effectiveness of our programme, based on clinically-devised findings.
