InnerVerse show

Summary: <p>Nicholas Heilig is a festival touring live-painter who has been steadily gaining popularity as he works tirelessly to improve his skills. We talk about finding the balance between the New Age woo-woo and healthy skepticism, advice for budding artists who want to make a career of their creativity, and how to not be duped by the myriad political divisions of the world. Nicholas is a great guy with a grounded but open minded way of viewing the world and I know you'll love this chat!</p><br><p><strong>FOLLOW HEILIG </strong></p><p><a href="https://instagram.com/heiligart" target="_blank"><strong>INSTAGRAM.COM/HEILIGART</strong></a><strong> </strong></p><p><a href="https://www.patreon.com/heiligart" target="_blank"><strong>PATREON.COM/HEILIGART</strong></a><strong> </strong></p><br><p><strong>Denver friends, don't miss </strong><a href="https://www.facebook.com/events/376730212832787/" target="_blank"><strong>Heilig's Juicy Art Market Event</strong></a><strong> on June 1st!</strong></p><br><p><strong>Subscribe to InnerVerse Plus+ for extended episodes!</strong></p><p><a href="https://www.patreon.com/innerverse" target="_blank"><strong>patreon.com/innerverse</strong></a></p><br><p><strong>Topics (</strong><a href="https://www.innerversepodcast.com/season-4/heiligart" target="_blank"><strong>View on IP Website</strong></a><strong>)</strong></p><p>⦁How artists can trade skill training with one another to empower both of their careers</p><p>⦁Exploring digital programs to supplement one's graphic design abilities</p><p>⦁Advice for getting into creating album artwork for musicians </p><p>⦁Creating cultures that value original thought by becoming more self-reliant</p><p>⦁Maintaining healthy levels of doubt and skepticism while retaining an open mind</p><p>⦁Ken Wilbur - Theory of Everything</p><p>⦁Why budding artists should be fearless with experimentation and different mediums</p><p>⦁"Just make stuff that's uniquely you, like crazy, all the time." </p><p>⦁Taking attention off the corrupt mass media and onto creating healing</p><p>⦁Questioning the increase in youth suicide rates and the rise of heavy pharmaceutical prescriptions </p><p>⦁Sovereignty &amp; Finding balance between collective co-dependency and personal responsibility</p><p>⦁Seeing through political dialectics</p><p>⦁Heilig's history as a festival hopping live painter </p><p>⦁Non-local psychic connections and auras</p><p>⦁Link to Twiddles' Tumbledown - <a href="http://twiddlemusic.com/tumble-down-2017/" target="_blank">http://twiddlemusic.com/tumble-down-2017/</a> </p><p>⦁Advice for aspiring live painters from Heilig</p><p>⦁Heilig's end goal of opening a live-in studio space for artists to share skills, tools, collaborate and utilize as a venue </p><br><p><strong>PLUS EXTENSION+ (</strong><a href="https://www.patreon.com/innerverse" target="_blank"><strong>Subscribe!</strong></a><strong>)</strong></p><p>⦁Why it matters to be surrounded by people who share a similar purpose to yours</p><p>⦁Utilizing resources that are available to artists through local government grants that some cities provide</p><p>⦁Heilig's story about a butterfly/moth sychronicity at Rootwire Festival and other sychronicities involving insects</p><p>⦁Great contemplations on the nature of infinity the interconnectedness of all life</p><p>⦁Ways to engage the right and left brain simultaneously</p><p>⦁Ideas about how to help and influence your community without sabotaging yourself</p><p>⦁considering what would happen to our national and religious differences if aliens invaded</p><p>⦁Heilig is looking for fellow artists to join him as performers at his upcoming show: "The Juicy Art Market" June 1st - <a href="https://www.facebook.com/events/376730212832787/" target="_blank">https://www.facebook.com/events/376730212832787/</a></p><br><p><br></p><br><p><br></p><h3>Music in this episode</h3><h3><a href="https://soundcloud.com/mildwestmusic" target="_blank"><strong>Mild West</strong></a></h3><p>Follow him on soundcloud for more funky jams with groovy basslines!</p><br><hr><p style="color:grey;font-size:0.75em;"> See <a style="color:grey;" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://acast.com/privacy">acast.com/privacy</a> for privacy and opt-out information.</p>
