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. I became immersed in the fields of psychology, spirituality, sociology, philosophy, and neuroscience while being equally engaged in deep inner work practices. Today my work explores human development, beliefs, polarization, identity, mental health, and the meaning crisis. I strive to create content and facilitate conversations that help others expand their self-identity and discover deeper levels of truth, meaning, and wholeness.

Some of the questions I am exploring are:

How does the human sense of identity evolve over a lifetime?

How can we facilitate and accelerate ego development so the greatest number of people can expand their capacity to hold a wide range of perspectives? 

What is the highest, most evolved, and integrated potential of consciousness?

How can we find sanity in an increasingly crazy world?  

What does it mean to be mentally healthy?

How can humanity overcome depression, addiction, and suicide?

What is happiness?

How can we use optimal conflict to find deeper levels of truth and understanding?

How do we live lives full of purpose and meaning?
