Tobey Crockett PhD  Change Agent

I am an artist, writer, teacher and activist. In 2018, I am launching a new project about "natural capital," a proposal to help transform the world in a peaceful, green revolution that transitions us away from an extractive economy to the emerging restoration economy of global stewardship. More details in the spring of 2018.

I also 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 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 
  • I lead an intimate study group in a chapel, the Morro Bay Metaphysicians. See topics for Spring 2018
  • I lead a Spiritual Sisterhood Support Circle that meets long distance, twice a month on Mondays 
Be sure to sign up for my newsletter below to get my new offerings and notices - I publish eight times a year.

Art News

I had a one person painting exhibition in the month of August at Bru in Atascadero. 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.

Find the press release and price list here. Read more about the video here.

I am scheduled for another show at Bru in October 2018. The theme is Faeries.
