Media Creates Culture: A Blog by the Awake Media Coalition

I conceived of using media to awaken consciousness while I was witnessing the Twin Towers toppling on TV. At that moment I knew that we as a species were going to need to spiritually awaken to transcend the trauma and turmoil that we have created at this level of consciousness, in it’s materiality. I decided to devote my skills as a designer and communicator to creating media that awakens. For a long time it remained somewhat of a New Age aspiration, without any legs, but now, in 2022, as I witness the unravelling of our culture and species into separate warring tribes, I see that the need for media that awakens has become urgent on many fronts– in transcending trauma, ending addiction, finding purpose, righting relationships, and reconnecting with the divine. Enter entheogens, my preferred word for psychedelics.

Hello! 

I am transitioning Awake Media from being a media agency that serves external client projects into a media company that creates films, apps, and books about a very important topic: entheogens, a.k.a. psychedelics. I have decided to put the power of my 35 years of experience with branding and design, as well as the power of media itself, wholly to work on communicating and repositioning entheogens in the collective. These amazing molecular magicians, particularly the plant-based ones like cannabis, ayahuasca, iboga/ibogaine, psilocybin, san pedro, and peyote, are psycho-spiritual tools given by nature for self-healing, self-knowledge, and the evolution of one’s own consciousness, no matter what cultural or religious background one might hail from (no faith necessary).

Misunderstood and much maligned for centuries because their power and proper medicinal and religious use did not translate into the mainstream Western mindset, plant-based psychedelics are now experiencing a resurgence of interest in medical and metaphysical circles. They can heal difficult mental problems like anxiety, depression,  PTSD and addiction where Western medicine fails, and offer access to a direct mystical experience. The reason these plants work where other approaches don’t is because they work on all levels—body, mind, and spirit—and can unlock the door to an inner journey that is a greatly enriching part of the human experience, and awaken the inner teacher and healer.

They bring new meaning to the phrase ‘Physician, heal thyself.

I am currently focused on a movie and a movement to spread the word and change the law around iboga, an entheogenic root bark that can help to end the opioid epidemic yet remains illegal in the US.

Our documentary, “Iboga: Root to Liberation”, is being made in collaboration with Academy Award-nominated cinematographer and founder of Impact Creative, Eric Thiermann; our mobile app to RESCHEDULE IBOGAINE is being made in collaboration with Rishabh Dev, founder of Mapplinks; and an Iboga Directory of Practitioners will be located on our sister site awake.net.

If you want to learn more about iboga or entheogens, sign up for our IBOGA SAVES Flood Dose Campaign during the months of November and December 2018 to access videos, podcasts, and posts from experts and experiencers alike.

A note to hosting and maintenance clients:
We will continue to offer domain name, hosting, SSL, and site maintenance services through https://awake.net/hosting to current and future clients.

Thanks for your attention,
Lakshmi Narayan

About Awake Media

Why Awake Media? In this corporate controlled dis-information age, it sounds like an oxymoron. We should not let it be so! The intention of Awake Media, and awaken-ing, its mission, flows from it’s founder, me, Lakshmi Narayan, a sentient life manifested in the corpus and work of Awake.

In the years of my graphic design education and career, I have passed through the academic and corporate worlds to find them largely empty of substance, serving mainly their voracious appetite, more than real need.

From being a long-time student of the I Ching and as of this writing, my 62 years of life and love of it, I have learned many things, of unity and duality, geometry, archetype and word, color and pattern, energy and feeling, and I infuse this knowledge in my complex yet simple work.

What is success? What does it cost?

I am always trying to fill the footsteps of being Awake, to marry beauty and function, vocation and avocation. My marketing plan is to address real need, mine and my clients. I strive to be a happy Medium of The Middle Way.

Awake Media is structured as a Coalition of Independent Contractors, a renaissance team for the entheogenic and transformational wellness community. Don’t hesitate to initiate a conversation with me or any Awake Media team member if you have a project you need help with.

Call or text 619-366-7788 or schedule on Calendly.

Lakshmi Narayan
Founder & Creative Director,
Awake Media
