Next Upcoming Event

A-Fest Jamaica, Nov 9-12 2017

A-Fest West 2017 will be taking place Thursday, November 9 to Sunday, November 12 in Montego Bay, Jamaica. The theme our community will be exploring is "Expanding Human Consciousness". 

At this A-fest, we'll be exploring ways to expand human consciousness through technology, neuro-training, meditative practices and altered states. Our keynote speaker Steven Kotler explained it best in the intro to his book "Stealing Fire". 

"It’s the biggest revolution you’ve never heard of, and it’s hiding in plain sight. Over the past decade, Silicon Valley executives like Eric Schmidt and Elon Musk, Special Operators like the Navy SEALs and the Green Berets, and maverick scientists like Sasha Shulgin and Amy Cuddy have turned everything we thought we knew about high performance upside down. Instead of grit, better habits, or 10,000 hours, these trailblazers have found a surprising short cut. They're harnessing rare and controversial states of consciousness to solve critical challenges and outperform the competition."
