About Artem Zen


About Artem Zen


Gassho, I’m Artem Zen. I’m an artist, facilitator, educator, and host of the Elevating Consciousness podcast.

Some years back I went through an existential crisis that propelled me on a journey of self-discovery. 

The highs and lows of this path opened me to immense depth, changed my understanding of reality, and sparked an infinite curiosity for exploring consciousness. 

Today my work explores human development, beliefs, polarization, identity, mental health, the meaning crisis, and awakening.
