Asger Nakskov Laursen
CEO & Founder, Member of Board of Directors and Management Board
For the past 23 years, plant-medicine has been part of my personal journey in life. After a long career in IT-consultancy with focus on creating intelligent software, I realised that my deeper passion was to work with the “software” running inside each of us: our consciousness. I started to shift my career towards leadership, coaching and later psychotherapy, while integrating my knowledge and calling for working with the healing properties of plant-medicine.
Co-founder, Member of Board of Directors, Marketing & Content Creator
For more than 24 years, from when I was 14 years old, I have travelled the world as a singer, performer, model, TV-hostess, brand ambassador and marketing influencer. Having met so many different people and seen so many different cultures inspired me to start looking at what is the true meaning of life - and the core of our human existence. This call for a new adventure led me to psychotherapy, and to start looking at my own life and emotional baggage. My adventure had become a journey towards my own personal healing. I decided to travel to Costa Rica to work with the plant medicine Ayahuasca, and was given a clear sense of my new direction in life, and was sighted with a vision to work with plant medicine and therapy.
In 2021, we realised that the time had come for us to step into the calling of creating the*dose. The pandemic had triggered into action. We could see the impact of the lock-down and the common narrative manifesting in fear, depression, stress, social anxiety and more, all around us. For years Asger has helped people getting started with microdosing and he has been coaching them along the way. And we both knew that the power of plant-medicine in combination with guidance, could change lives, alleviate ailments, help and motivate people.
So we quit our jobs, and together we decided to go all in on creating a place where people can reconnect with their higher selves, with the support of guidance and the power of medicinal mushrooms and microdosing.
This is a core-belief of ours; that we humans have tremendous potential and resources inside of us. We also believe the journey to unlocking this potential and these resources, is a journey of reconnection to ourselves.
Plant-medicine promotes reconnection, and in combination with science-based cognitive coaching in the form of guidance, creates a new baseline of mental health.
