Consciousness Hacking produced the The Awakened Futures Summit in San Francisco on May 18th & 19th, looking at the intersection between psychedelics, technology, and meditation. Consciousness Hacking previously hosted a sold-out event on October 24th, 2018 that was titled “Psychedelics, Technology and the Future of Meditation,” and that gave them an indication that there was a lot of interest in the fusion of these topics.
So Consciousness Hacking created the Awakened Futures Summit in order to bring together the psychedelic underground with the latest biofeedback and immersive technologies, as well as with the latest neuroscience research into meditation, contemplative practices, and transformational technologies that are focused on helping people reach a variety of different states of consciousness. I spoke with the executive director of Consciousness Hacking, Joshua Fields, about how the Awakened Futures Summit came about, his own personal journey into consciousness hacking, what each of these variety of different intersections have in common, some of the deep open questions around the narrative structures to contain these practices, and where he sees this current experiential renaissance heading in the future.
