Several years ago, Lisa Garr suffered a brain injury during a California State Championship Mountain bike race, where she was in second place, about to take over first. She fell down a long mountain to the bottom, cracking her helmet in 13 places. Lisa had a near death experience while lying on the side of the mountain until the helicopter medics came to transport her to the nearest hospital. This experience transformed her level of consciousness and was the catalyst for starting her media platform about awareness that now reaches millions of people per month worldwide. Lisa rebuilt her brain and her life using specific visualization techniques and accessing different levels of conscious awareness she calls Brain-nastics.
Since that experience Lisa Garr created The Aware Show, a transformational radio show about natural health, cutting-edge science, personal growth and spirituality. Since 1999, Lisa has hosted a day-time talk radio program featuring best-selling authors and experts in the fields of spirituality and healing. She is considered an expert in the field of lifestyle and transformational media programming.
In addition to Lisa hosting the popular syndicated radio show The Aware Show, she also hosts a show on Hay House Radio called Being Aware. You might also know her from a series she does for Gaia TV called Lisa’s Inspirations. She also has one of the largest Telesummit series on the Internet found at https://theawareshow.com. In the Los Angeles market, listeners hear her on KPFK-90.7 FM and on WBAI 99.5 FM in New York and she is a regular weekend host on Coast to Coast AM, syndicated in over 600 stations around the world. Combined, she reaches millions of listeners globally a month. Lisa is also the author of, Becoming Aware; How to Repattern Your Brain and Revitalize your Life (Hay House) outlining her recovery from a tragic brain injury and how she found her voice so she can be a voice for change.
Lisa’s story of how she created The Aware Show from a dream during a tragic accident is outlined in the new Chicken Soup for the Soul: Dreams and the Unexplainable.
In 2002, Lisa and her husband welcomed their first child to their family in Los Angeles, California.
