Andy Meijer is a Research and Knowledge Exchange associate at the MIND Foundation. He has a strong fascination for the breadth and variety of consciousness that people experience. To explore this, he obtained his BA in psychobiology at the University of Amsterdam, after which he did his M.Sc. in clinical neuropsychology at Leiden University.
Working with psychotic patients during his internship and afterwards volunteering in a hospice, he further developed his passions: understanding and spreading evidence-based knowledge about the therapeutic potential of altered states of consciousness, exploring what it means to be conscious, and awareness of the finality of said consciousness.
