Here are the categories for the Aries Awards for 2018:

  • Ambassador Award
  • Lifetime Achievement Award
  • Founding President Appreciation Award
  • Innovation Award

The Aries Awards are AREI’s version of the Academy Awards Oscar.

The AREI Aries Awards are intended to recognize Earthly warriors of love and light who assist in accomplishing the AREI mission that will ultimately benefit the Earth and humankind.

There are numerous versions of the story of the Greek God Aries. However, all accounts share one common theme: Aries was a lover and a warrior who stood firmly on the Earth working shoulder-to-shoulder with people. Astrology informs us that those born under the Aries sign are natural leaders, each in his or her unique way. Aries are passionate about the initiation of new ideas. They are tenacious in seeking progress and shining light upon truth, wherever it is discovered.

AREI recognizes that each of you, our members, is a warrior for love and light. We want to thank all of you for your acts of compassion and generosity. You shine your light, brightening the corner where you are.

Each year, the Afterlife Research and Education Institute will recognize select individuals for their outstanding contributions to humankind by presenting them with an Aries Award.
