On this episode of the Psychedelic Invest Podcast, host Bruce Eckfeldt is joined by Robin Arnott and Sandeep Prakash of SoundSelf.


SoundSelf knows that therapists and healers are more than just one-size-fits-all practitioners of a system—they’re highly empathetic and creative souls who yearn to better their patients and community. SoundSelf believes these people should have access to the best tools that enhance their practice in a way that is not only safe and effective, but also rewarding and even fun. Their state-of-the-art tools use techniques of ancient origins. They are spiritual technologies, validated by science, and delivered in a compassionate setting by you.

Robin Arnott

Robin Arnott is the founder and CEO of SoundSelf, a digital therapeutic supporting life and mind transformation.

Before founding SoundSelf, Robin was the CEO of Andromeda Entertainment, where he oversaw the distribution of VR experiences that provide psychological fulfillment through embodiment and meditation.

A longstanding public speaker, Robin teaches and advocates for game design principles that facilitate psychological transformation by engaging the body. His work and ideas are featured in Netflix’s “Screenland” docu-series, and the documentary “Game Loading: Rise of the Indies”. He has spoken about technology as an awakening agent at the Game Developers’ Conference, Wisdom 2.0, Transformative Technology Conference, The Science of Consciousness, and TEDx Linz.

Sandeep Prakash

Sandeep Prakash is a psychologist, educator, and researcher. My work draws on western psychology and indigenous systems of wellness, such as shamanism, yoga, Buddhism, and non-dual Vedanta philosophy. I completed training in research, depth psychology, eco-psychology, and psychological work with altered states of consciousness during my Master’s and Doctoral degrees at the California Institute of Integral Studies. I have extensive experience facilitating transformative events, training, seminars, CE continuing education, graduate-level courses, on topics such as psychedelic integration, yoga psychology, neuropsychology of trauma, nature-based psychological practice, and transformative experience design in Virtual Reality.

My doctoral dissertation research explored cutting-edge virtual reality, or VR, technology for psychological well-being. Using a novel collaborative study design, the research generated qualitative and quantitative data about the long-term use of a VR app-SoundSelf VR– that induces altered states of consciousness akin to psychedelics, such as LSD or psilocybin.

At SoundSelf, I lead research, medical affairs, and Digital Therapeutic design. I also assist with strategy, marketing, regulatory affairs, and general business processes of a fun, fast-paced, and industry-leading psychedelic health-tech startup.
