THE AWARE PROJECT: Two Years In; Where Have We Come From, Where We Are Going

Ashley Booth Presents: "I'm excited to spark a dialogue with the community about what comes next for the Aware Project. I will briefly go over why I created the Aware Project, what we have accomplished so far, and some ideas on where we can go from here. Then, I want to open up the conversation to the community for a dialogue about what we want to create together. If you have been wanting to participate more in the Aware Project, we are looking forward to creating a collaborative space and getting more people involved. Come with your ideas!"

BIO: Most of you already know Ashley, founder of the Aware Project. You may not know that Ashley's background is in the sciences, and that she has a Masters in Physical Oceanography. Since 2006, Ashley has worked at prominent universities and state environmental agencies. Concurrently, Ashley found herself diving deeper and deeper into the festival scene, exploring the fringes of consciousness and culture. Early in 2013 Ashley experienced a profound entheogenic experience, which, for the next few years, ignited the fire of activism in her heart, and led her ultimately to create the Aware Project: Rethinking Psychedelics. This led Ashley to leave her job, as she embarked on a career shift into advocacy work and counseling. In the last year, Ashley co-founded InnerSpace Integration, completed the first half of a somatic psychotherapy training program, was hired by Crossroads Treatment Center in Mexico as a psychospiritual counselor, and participated in the MAPS therapist training. This coming year, she will serve as project coordinator for the Los Angeles clinical trail for MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD. She is also on her way back to graduate school, on a path to licensure.

MICRODOSING: An Alchemical Approach to Sacred Plant Healing

Explore how small doses of entheogenic plants can increase your energy and enhance your creativity! In certain circles, microdosing is all the rage. As Alternet recently reported, “Microdosing refers to taking extremely small doses of psychedelics, so small that the affects usually associated with such drugs are not evident or are "sub-perceptual," while going about one's daily activities. It's being done by anyone from harried professionals to extreme athletes to senior citizen businesswomen, and they're claiming serious benefits from it.” In this talk, Fabian will describe how microdosing works upon the body and spirit — from medical, scientific, and shamanic perspectives.

 

BIO

Fabian Michael Piorkowsky was the first to develop a process for alchemical microdosing with plant spirit medicines — ayahuasca, san pedro, iboga — years before it became a trend. Now he is taking this approach to the next level by using an alchemical spagyric process, rather than simple dilution, to obtain the plant essences. Fabian uses ancient healing modalities and sacred plant medicine in a modern and integrated approach to provide life changing experiences, healing and transformation beyond what each of those modalities and techniques are capable of on their own. Fabian follows a multidisciplinary approach in order to get a more holistic understanding of healing, having studied Chemistry and Physics, and various systems of spiritual philosophy such as the Vedas, Kabbalah, Buddhism and several indigenous and Shamanic traditions. Apart from his direct work with people on retreats and in one on one sessions he is also very involved in spreading information and knowledge about ancient medicine and traditional healing through talks on conferences and coverage in the mainstream press as well as spiritual documentaries.

 

Fabian was featured in the documentary "The Reality of Truth" which explores the relationship between spirituality, religion, and psychedelics. Featuring first of its kind interviews with the top thought leaders in the world including Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Ram Dass, David Lynch, Fabian Michael Piorkowsky & many more. https://therealityoftruth.com/the-film/. Fabian is also featured regularly in main stream print press, for instance Marie Claire, Glamour Paris, Elle Magazine and others: http://www.glamourparis.com/amour-et-sexe/actualite/articles/c-est-dans-le-mag-trip-chamanique-la-nouvelle-therapie-spirituelle/24090
