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, the meaning crisis, and awakening. I strive to create content and facilitate conversations that help others expand their self-identity and discover deeper levels of truth, meaning, and wholeness.
