Awake Media creates films, apps, and books about a very important topic: entheogens, a.k.a. psychedelics. I have decided to put the power of my 40 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 Saves”, is being made in collaboration with Academy Award-nominated cinematographer and founder of Impact Creative, Eric Thiermann; Iboga Directory of Practitioners will be located on our sister site awake.net.
