“I am dedicated to helping others in the same way I was helped.”
Rock Feilding-Mellen is an entrepreneur and investor, and one of the co-founders of Beckley Retreats. As a non-executive director, Rock reviews and assists the executive team in its mission to deliver safe, legal, and transformative experiences with the highest of standards, while also working towards enabling affordable and inclusive access to these programs.
Rock’s mother is Amanda Feilding, the “Queen of Psychedelics,” and like most people, he spent much of his life rebelling against his upbringing. But in his mid-thirties, a tragedy left him feeling purposeless and lost. It was only then that he found himself willing to explore that which his mother had long championed, finally seeing how transformative and regenerative the entheogenic use of psychedelics could be.
Having been rescued from what felt to him like a pit of cynicism, Rock is now determined to help other skeptics and “realists” discover the strength and joy that come from perceiving that we live in an enchanted universe. “I am dedicated to helping others in the same way I was helped, to turn their lives around and see the wonder all around them.”
