Introducing founders Hein Pijnnaken & Jakobien van der Weijden
We’ve literally turned the tables for this Table Talk! In this first episode of 2023, Microdosing Institute founders Hein and Jakobien are interviewed by Alex van Binsbergen.
We dive into their personal stories and how their journeys collide with the mission of Microdosing Institute to normalize the conscious and effective use of psychedelic medicines – microdosing in particular.
