“I’ve always known Lisa Garr was a special person, but I had no idea—until reading her book—of all the things she’d lived through to become the bright light she is today. There is something very wise and embracing about Lisa—when she showers you with that profound kindness of hers, it changes you. Now everybody who reads Becoming Aware can have that experience, and we’ll all be better off for it. I’ve been hoping Lisa would take her great talents and express them in the words of a book, and I’m delighted to help tell all the world that it’s here. This book is like taking a marvelous journey with a wonderful new friend, and what she reveals on your adventure will stay with you forever.”

Several years ago, I suffered a brain injury during a California State Championship Mountain bike race, where I was in second place, about to take over first. I fell down a long mountain to the bottom, cracking my helmet in 13 places.

I had a near death experience while lying on the side of the mountain until the helicopter medics came to transport me to the nearest hospital. This experience transformed my level of consciousness and was the catalyst for starting my media platform about awareness that now reaches millions of people per month worldwide.

I rebuilt my brain and my life using specific visualization techniques and accessing different levels of conscious awareness I call Brain-nastics.

History of Interviews

Lisa Garr has conducted over 3300 interviews of the world’s foremost experts in all areas of health, nutrition, spirituality, personal transformation, neuroscience, mindfulness, wealth creation, business development, longevity, and conscious cultural activism.


Lisa is dedicated to communicating information that inspires positive growth and change, which leads to listeners living fuller, happier, purpose-driven lives. Her intention is to share resources regarding alternative health, personal growth and practical wisdom. She honors individual uniqueness and encourages listeners to make conscious choices in every moment and to listen to their own truth.


Based on a desire to live in a more conscious world, Lisa created The Aware Show, a talk radio show about self-development, spirituality and natural health. It airs on KPFK Radio Los Angeles. In 2009 Lisa introduced the Aware Show Summits, online live broadcast audio/video interview series focusing on Money and Abundance, Practical Neuroscience, Body Health and the Soul.

Lisa states: “I created this show to bring balance to my own life, between my passion for spiritual growth and working in the entertainment industry. I am learning, just like many listeners, and I make it a point to have guests give examples of how to apply their philosophies to every day living. I bring into my conversations real life situations, even aspects of my own life that will help clarify concepts. And with so many different angles presented by the different guests, I invite the listeners to hear what philosophies resonate with them and become empowered by making conscious choices.

Lisa is currently pursuing her masters at the University of Philosophical Research in Transformational Psychology. With more than 16 years of interviewing experts on her radio show, her new book, Becoming Aware, is based on the resounding information she has learned. In addition, Lisa prides herself in being a consummate athlete, and highly ranked in the state of California in cross-country mountain bike racing.

Lisa’s energetic spirit and wealth of knowledge prove to be a dynamic and inspirational combination to the success of The Aware Show.
