What we're about

Our aim is to balance the public conversation about psychedelics, spread accurate information, and give a new face to psychedelia. We feel that this change will occur through connection and relationship, one individual at a time. We are calling on everyone whose lives have been improved through the mindful use of psychedelics to educate themselves and become ambassadors for the psychedelic experience. Show those around you that people who use psychedelics mindfully cross all social, racial, economic, and political boundaries.

The Aware Project organizes events in Los Angeles to educate and connect the psychedelic community. Currently we are running a monthly speaker series called the Psychedelic Awareness Salon and screening psychedelic related documentaries and movies. You can find out about upcoming events here: http://awareproject.eventbrite.com/

The event schedule is typically: speaker/movie followed by questions and then mingling time

Find us online ( http://www.awareproject.org ) or on Facebook (facebook.com/awareproject (https://www.facebook.com/awareproject))

We do NOT hold ceremonies nor do we connect people with any illegal substances or providers. Please do NOT contact us seeking these things. We are education and risk reduction ONLY!

PSA: occasionally people post ayahusaca ceremonies on Meetup. These are illegal and please be very careful. We cannot connect you to any providers but we are happy to help you know what kinds of questions you should be asking of anyone that you might want to sit with here or abroad from a risk reduction standpoint. Be safe everyone.

Becoming a Voice for the Plants

Santa Monica Playhouse & Group Theatre

The Aware Project (www.awareproject.org) hosts a series of monthly Psychedelic Awareness Salon events in Los Angeles and San Diego. We are creating a connected and educated community that feels passionately about balancing the conversation about psychedelics. SCHEDULE **NOTE OUR NEW START TIME AT 7:30 FOR THIS EVENING & EVENTS GOING FORWARD** Please plan accordingly. Come early for mingling, & allowing time for parking. Doors open at 7:00 PM for mingling. Presentation will begin at 7:30 PM. TALK TITLE Becoming a Voice for the Plants DESCRIPTION Adam Roa and Azrya Cohen have been in a deep communion with altered states of consciousness for the past seven years. Beginning with forays into psychedelics through the burning man community, both Adam and Azrya continually found deeper insight, purpose and clarity of vision through working with these substances in an intentional way. Five years ago, Ayahuasca became the umbilical cord that connected them back to the source of who they are and launched them on an accelerated growth trajectory that has led them to being the conscious artists they are today. During this talk, Adam and Azrya will share the step-by-step journey they’ve been on to turn Media into Medicine, and use their background in filmmaking and storytelling to elevate human consciousness as shepherds of humanity through a global phase shift of Awakening to Empathy. BIO Adam Roa is a transformational artist who is committed to using creative energy to catalyze change on the planet. A modern day Renaissance man, Adam is constantly creating a variety of artistic projects, including conscious film, music, and spoken word poetry. On a quest to discover what it means to be an empowered man, he is known for sharing his journey with radical authenticity on his reality-based Youtube show, "The Art of Choosing Love" as well as his podcast, "The Deep Dive with Adam Roa". www.AdamRoa.com Azrya spent the last decade in Hollywood as an actress, writer, producer and director. A modern day media medicine woman, she facilitates transformation for influencers and world changers through activating humanity to remember their innate A.I. (Ancient Intelligence). Her voice acts as a potent technology to bring dormant DNA online and open portals into other realms. Azrya is here to shepherd humanity through the growing pains of awakening to multidimensional awareness with humor and grace. www.iAzrya.com FEATURED MUSICIAN Blu, a medicine woman who sings straight from the voice of the plants.
