Waking Up to a New Consciousness: The Future of Transformative Wellness
Stacey Wallin & Payton Nyquvest join Paul Austin to discuss their new project, Numinus, a global network of healing spaces that use a combination of psychedelic medicine and cutting-edge science.
Founded in 2018, Numinus offers a holistic blend of medicine-assisted therapy, psycho-spiritual support and integrative services as a path towards experiencing transformative health. Based in Vancouver, they plan to develop worldwide centers in the coming years.
Payton is a former Director, VP and Head of Sales at Mackie Research Capital, with 15 years of experience focusing on early stage companies in multiple industries including technology, health-care/biotech, clean tech and Cannabis. He has raised over $100M for 100+ public and private companies and facilitated numerous IPOs.
He founded Numinus out of a lifelong interest in health, wellness and personal development, triggered by mental health and chronic autoimmune problems in his earlier years.
Stacey previously founded and was CEO of LifeBooster, a tech startup now helping Fortune 100 clients detect and proactively respond to workplace injury risks. She most recently was the Director of Venture Programs at the BC Tech Association with a mandate of solving the largest ecosystem and policy-related challenges facing growth and scale stage technology companies.
She founded Numinus with a similar passion for holistic wellness after working through familial mental health issues and experiencing a series of near-death experiences in 2015 related to illness and misdiagnosis, which inspired her to begin studying and advocating awareness of the connectivity between mind-body and individual-societal health.
