From Hosting to Film: A Digital Media Ecosystem for the Psychedelic Community

Awake Media has evolved from a solo studio into a digital media ecosystem with a renaissance team of media experts who can serve the transformational community to create and send out their awakening messages and teachings quickly and powerfully. Ease of use is a key consideration for us because we find that if the processes have been streamlined, the creativity flows and we can create something great together. In the world of design, this is called Design Thinking, and we apply this to all our work.

The Awake Media Ecosystem

We are careful about who we work with and are seeking to “find the others” those who know in their heart of hearts that “There is no Other.” We want to harness the power of media for you and with you to create culture and quicken an awakening. Email or text Lakshmi Narayan at 619-366-7788 or

I'm from India, but I learned Swiss typography during my Master's program at University of Illinois in Chicago, where I also learned design history from a professor who was as passionate about it as myself.

I am a conceptual designer. I understand branding and how to develop an identity imbued with meaning and then extend it across all platforms, online and offline. I understand how to deliver a visual pun, or multiplicity of meanings through the simplification of form in a logo. I understand the power of visual and verbal communications working seamlessly to create a brand and deliver a powerful message or call to action. Why is this important? Because media creates culture.

I have 40 years experience in design and communications. My career and interests have taken me from working with major corporate brands like Arthur Andersen, Encyclopedia Britannica, Schwinn, Allied Van Lines and many Hospital systems, to working more in the counterculture industry of human potential, psychedelic and other plant medicines, healing, and psychospiritual transformation with companies like MAPS, Women's Visionary Congress, Synergetic Press and others.

I founded Awake Media in 2012 as a digital media company offering branding, web design, print design, video production, seo, social media, and film. Awake Media is structured as a coalition of independent media professionals with complementary skills and core competencies.

I began my business career at the age of 19 when I started a company importing cutting edge superfoods like Spirulina from the US to UK. This led to my participation and co-founding a variety of different companies in the sustainable living arena culminating in co-owning the Whole Life Expo & Conferences, a large-scale consumer expo in America. I am also the co-author of the book Sacred Commerce. I currently live in the UK.
