Tobey Crockett PhD

I am an artist, writer, teacher and activist.

I act as a mentor to guide people who seek a breakthrough in their lives.

I have mentored hundreds of individuals through crisis, opportunity and reinvention, and I have a unique combination of intuition, pragmatism, honesty and tenderness to assist those who seek support, encouragement and fresh insight on their journey.

Sometimes I work with clients in pragmatic business ways, and sometimes I guide them to shape and edit a manuscript, but more and more often I use a variety of tools to mentor people to reach their desired goals in life.
You can work with a me a few ways:

  • I teach workshops on empowerment and wisdom. See Tobey Teaches and my scholarship options
  • I lead an intimate study group in a chapel, the Morro Bay Metaphysicians. See topics for Summer 2017 
  • I lead a new Moon Circle that meets longdistance, twice a month on Mondays near the new and full moon 
  • I offer limited private sessions for those who seek mentoring and/or help with writing
  • I provide copywriting/editing services for business projects.  
  • Find daily uplifting news stories at my Facebook group Yes To Positive Social Change Now

Art News

I am having a one person painting exhibition at Bru Coffeehouse in the month of August. You can see the trailer I created above - I used vintage and public domain footage and found a great surf track to accompany the images of my paintings and the sort of people and places that inspire these surf pictures of mine. I hope to do more in the future and would love to include more paintings that speak to the history of surf culture and its origins.

Surfing Angels & The Ocean of Love” is on view at the Bru coffeehouse through the entire month of August. An opening party is scheduled for Sunday, August 6th, from 3-5 pm. As I like to say, angels may be among us at any time - if only we have the hearts and eyes to see them. And these angels are hitting the beach!! Read the press release here.

Bru Coffeehouse 5760 El Camino Real, Atascadero, CA 805-464-5007  Open 7 days a week
