Inspiring the evolution from the starving artist archetype, to the Surrendered Artist.
We empower artists to make the shift from a scarcity mindset to a prosperity mindset through understanding that it's actually their consciousness that is their asset that can be monetized to earn a living and their art is just one expression that. Through this mindset shift, they free themselves from the limitations of belief that they “need to make it” in only one possible way and free themselves to remain true to their message and inspire positive change.
We amplify Creatives who spread Love not fear.
We believe that authenticity is today’s currency and through intentional use of art, we can create a more loving world. To do this, we equip artists with the tools that allow them financial sovereignty so they can stay true to the positive message they desire to share and we equip individuals with the understanding of how to use art to heal. With a focus on the youth of today, we believe that we can ensure that the next generation of leaders knows how to handle any difficulties that life may throw their way.
Most people are not equipped to deal with their physical and emotional stress, so Surrendered Artist’s goal is to teach how we all can utilize art as a tool for processing the highs and lows of the human experience - ensuring our pain is not repressed, and therefore breaking the cycle of generational trauma and dysfunction.
ART AS A TECHNOLOGY
Although we want to create a world where there is no more abuse or pain, a far more effective starting point is to give people the tool to deal with it if it does happen. This is how we can end this cycle of hurt people hurting people.
With a society built on a content economy designed for numbing out or providing distracted dopamine hits - it takes courage to feel in today’s day and age.
True sustained embodied change happens when you feel it. That's where it begins the program, in the limbic brain. That's why childhood traumas become patterns that we play out for the rest of our lives because of how deeply we felt it on an emotional level.
Surrendered Artist’s mission is to educate people as to the power of Art as a Technology for processing the emotional experience you are having - in real time.
Art has the ability to bypass the logical defense mechanism of the human mind, and has the ability to penetrate the feeling and emotional level, because it is perhaps the one thing on the planet that people give permission to let them feel.
In order to heal, we’ve got to feel.
When we equip people, especially children, on how to use art to deal with whatever experiences or emotions, or traumas that they are experiencing in their life, then we've given them a very powerful tool to handle anything that happens in life. The sooner we can teach children and teenagers how to use art as a healing technology to process what comes up, the higher liklinees they can quit perpetuating these wounded stories for years and decades. Surrendered Artist educates from both spaces, as the receiver of art and as the creators and makers of art.
