380. The Life and Legacy of Ram Dass with Raghu Markus

Ram Dass was a pivotal influence on spirituality in the West, spreading a powerful message of love and urging us to “Be Here Now.” In this episode, Jeff talks with Raghu Markus, co-founder of the Be Here Now Network, to discuss Ram Dass’ life and legacy – from his beginnings as a Harvard psychotherapist to his adventures in psychedelics to his teachings that continue to inspire people today.
