An overview of the venture backed startup ecosystem focus on expanding consciousness
Dang, this is comprehensive and a wonderful resource. Thanks for putting this together Scott! I hope you keep it updated ;)
Very comprehensive indeed. Love these observations.
Such an incredible and comprehensive layout + loved the way you framed each category. Thanks sm Greg and Scott for putting this together!
Wow. Very impressive. And encouraging... given the current level of consciousness operating in of most of humanity. Thanks for sharing this.
Having been gifted so much from meditation, eastern philosophy such as the yoga sutras, and plant medicine ceremonies these past 11 years, I’m genuinely stoked about all this.
One small concern I have is that some of these VC backed ventures feel a bit too much in the realm of the typical business mode of monetizing anything and everything. I wonder what is being done with more humanistic values than P&L focus?
Thanks for showing up beautifully in this world and giving your gifts so openly honest and authentic. Loved your interview with Trish B also! Bravo!
The language of religion and spirituality in general and of Orthodox Christianity in particular has become a 'foreign language' for most people and, as such, has become incomprehensible to most of us.
Besides that, it has been misinterpreted, misunderstood and misrepresented for so long that most of us simply disregard it altogether and end up 'throwing the baby out with the bathwater'.
These articles are my attempt to 'translate' this foreign language into something more comprehensible.
I would be interested to see what you think about them.
You mention Hallow and Pray as Christian consciousness-expanding apps, and that piqued my interest quite a bit actually. I've recently been taking Christianity a little more seriously as a repository of wisdom, and have found a lot of extremely interesting parallels to states of consciousness that for instance, Buddhism discusses more directly.
Do you know any writers or resources out there that specifically discuss expanding consciousness within the context of a Christian framework?
If not, I might be interested in writing a bit about that...
This summary and review was very insightful. Thanks Scott and Greg. Please check our supplements in the field of consciousness expansion and psycho-spiritual wellness, here: https://ancestralmagi.com

Hey Scott, really enjoyed this. I shot you a note on linkedin, I'd love to connect about what we're up to at www.ogimi.ai
What’s your take on the connection between consciousness startups and spiritual materialism?
Someone just invited me to an event at Othership in Toronto. Looks fun, but also just like a rebranded yoga studio.
No offence just comic relief. I was accepted for a commercial sales and marketing course myself but got sidetracked
