Job Description

About Satori
Satori means sudden enlightenment - that moment of comprehension and understanding that precedes peace. This elusive Satori state is possible and often achieved with psychedelic therapy.
At Satori we believe that life is inherently nonsensical; finding it challenging is a logical reaction to an illogical situation. Thus, rather than seeing mental health and personal struggles as a deficit, we see them as a springboard to a deeper understanding of oneself and a pathway to a happier and more fulfilling life through personal development.This is why we have 4 core pillars in the company: education, vetted psychedelic retreats, integration therapy and a nurturing community. All of these components work in tandem with each to help foster transformational experiences that help people have insights and put in the work to help them grow in their personal development journey.
After receiving Pre-Seed funding from Woven Science and Founders Factory in March 2022, Satori is spinning off the incubator at Founders Factory in August and will begin fundraising for our pre-seed round in September with the goal of expanding our operations and building a tech platform to support the business as well as begin collecting key psychometric insights as people move through different stages of healing.About the role
