We now have the ability to access the collective wisdom of the leading thought leaders of our day. In this podcast Riël Malan will have in-depth conversations with....
The "Shapers" - the visionaries, the seekers, the philosophers and dreamers. The ones who innovate and live in a world of ideas
The "Makers" - who create. The artists, artisans, performers and musicians.
The "Builders" - who are the strategists, the organizers. Leaders that take ideas and products and incorporate them into organizations that are larger than themselves.
The "Breakers" - that are outspoken and controversial. The ones who challenge the status quo and our thinking, that "breaks" convention and pushes our boundaries.

Episode #34: Ronen Aires - guide, entrepreneur, psychedelic boundary breaker
I speak to Ronen Aires, an African pioneer in the re-discovery of psychedelics. These ancient compounds have been part of human existence and medication for thousands of years. Yet it has fallen out of favor over the past 60 years. Currently, the use of psychedelics in the treatment of multiple disorders is receiving renewed focus from both alternative health practitioners and medical research institutions around the world.
Ronen shares his own journey with us, and we will explore some of the benefits that he has experienced firsthand through the application of various psychedelic compounds.

Ian Fuhr's name is synonymous with one of South Africa's most recognized brands, Sorbet, a chain of beauty salons that he founded in 2004. But his tireless work in building businesses based on fairness and equality is his greatest passion.
