About and Contact
Zach Leary is a podcaster, writer, cognitive dissident, yogi and psychedelic advocate. Growing up in Beverly Hills in the 1980s, he came to realise that the man who often took him to school in the morning and “tossed the ball” in the backyard with him, was not only one of the instigators of the counterculture movement of the 1960s, but also “had a front row seat for some of the most important cultural movements of the late twentieth century.” This led Zach to create a path for himself that’s been rich with many different incarnations ranging from digital marketing ace for Apple to futurist to psychedelic integration specialist and advocate.
Over the course of the last 35 years, Zach has found himself in the center of the psychedelic movement with a front row seat for the modern renaissance while also having first hand knowledge of the historical legacy of the counter cultures influence on psychedelic healing.
After spending many years as a digital marketing expert for some of the worlds largest brands, Zach had a wake up call over 10 years ago that thrust him back into the center of the psychedelic cyclone thanks to the influence of his primary teacher and mentor, Ram Dass. Since, then he has found his own unique voice and method in being able to contribute to the revolutionary new psychedelic movement we find ourselves in.
As a health and wellness facilitator, integration coach, guided session therapist and seeker of all things mystical – Zach has worked with nearly 100 people one on one to help them heal with the assistance of psychedelic medicines. And as a teacher, Zach has taught over 50 people his unique approach to psychedelic studies, safe use and harm reduction, the history of psychedelics and how to be a well rounded, knowledgeable and safe practitioner.
Zach currently hosts The MAPS podcast and has in depth knowledge of psychedelic assisted facilitation, is a trained meditation teacher, a student of bhakti yoga, an IFS enthusiast and expert in the history of psychedelic culture and its many methodologies.
Zach is also a facilitator at the Evolution Retreat Center in Negril, Jamaica. Evolution Retreats is a beautiful retreat center that does legal psilocybin retreats using the most modern and effective methodologies available.
As an author, Zach’s first book “And Now, The Work Begins – Psychedelics in the 21st Century and How to Use Them” will be published by SoundsTrue in late 2023.

It’s better to see God in everything than to try to figure it out. – Neem Karoli Baba
The intellect is a beautiful servant, but a terrible master. Intellect is the power tool of our separateness. The intuitive, compassionate heart is the doorway to our unity.
