Robert ‘Bob’ Jesse is one of the hidden movers and shakers in the psychedelics renaissance. He founded the Council on Spiritual Practices. Together with Roland Griffiths (and many others), he led the new research into psychedelics, also with a focus beyond the ill, but too for people for spiritual and psychological benefits.
He is a founding member of the UC Berkeley Center for the Science of Psychedelics.
Previously he also worked on the (first) study design of the Johns Hopkins psilocybin studies.
In a previous life, as they say, he was a vice president for Oracle (software company).
He has given various talks:
- Bob Jesse: Psychedelics – Uncertain Paths from Re-emergence to Renaissances – Psychedelic Science 2017 summit
- Robert Jesse: Psilocybin Occasions Mystical Experiences Having Sustained Spiritual Significance – Entheogenesis Australis
- Bob Jesse at CIIS Psychedelics in Psychotherapy – California Institute of Integral Studies
