Armed with a bold voice, a keen critical eye, and an expanded perspective, Dani Katz established her reputation as one of LA’s edgiest literary talents while writing about art, sex, consciousness, wellness, spirituality and transformational culture for the LA Weekly, back in its early millennium heyday. She has since contributed to scores of publications, including Los Angeles Times, Vice, Teen Vogue, Swindle, LA Yoga, Whole Life Times/Magazine and Santa Fe Reporter, as well as Nerve, The Numinous and Reality Sandwich. Most recently, she put her investigative journalism skills to work as lead writer/researcher on the highly censored documentary, Plandemic 2: Indoctornation.
In addition to her broad spectrum of formal studies and practical experience, including a Master’s Degree in Journalism from USC’s prestigious Annenberg School, Katz has spent the past decade and a half immersed in the study of Quantum Languaging™ and conscious communication, researching and perfecting the myriad ways, whys and hows that language influences our every human experience. She is the author of Word Up: Little Languaging Hacks for Big Change and the forthcoming title, The Language of Betterarchy.
Katz works as a Quantum Languaging™ consultant, supporting high-performing needle-movers and game-changing organizations in optimizing their communications in service to greater impact, efficacy, harmony and profit, while guiding the individuals involved to empower themselves, actualize their potential and evolve the world for the infinitely more wonderful. (Intellectual Ventures Laboratories, Taxi Butler, Women In Film, Gene Keys).
She teaches about Quantum Languaging on her video channel, Words (R) Matter, as well as in her webinars, workshops and seminars (Lightning in a Bottle, Leaders Causing Leaders, Ra Ma Business School, et al) and her homeschool courses (applied linguistics, critical thinking, pop propaganda and media literacy).
In fact, it was Katz’s hands-on experience teaching homeschoolers about propaganda that inspired her to create Pop Propaganda: An Illustrated Guide – a hand-written/drawn compendium of 21st century propaganda techniques, that soared to #3 on Amazon’s media studies chart, where it is currently selling like those proverbial hotcakes (grain/dairy-free, of course).
Known as well for her adorable line drawings as she is her wily wordplay, Katz’s illustrations have shown in numerous fine art galleries, and are featured alongside the bulk of her articles, as well as upon her Society6 product line. She is the creator of the cult classic, I AM calendar, which inspired her transformational coloring book, Yes, I Am, as well as her animated Planetary Service Announcement series, which features languaging hacks, cultural criticism, consciousness expanding tips and paradigm-shattering thinky-fodder. Her PSAs have appeared on Z Living, Reality Sandwich, Elephant Journal and The Numinous, as well as that aforementioned video channel, Words (R) Matter (which you totally want to subscribe to).
Katz was the ghostwriter behind the New York Times bestseller, Spirit Hacking, which she wrote for Shaman Durek, along with his oracle deck, Alchemy Elementals.
Ms. Katz hosts her own podcast, Word Up with Dani Katz , which features solutions-based conversations with original thinkers, visionary leaders and rebel badasses. She also co-hosts the alt news/deep-truth podcast, Words with Dani + Emily, with fellow Valley Girl and Off Planet Media sensation, Emily Moyer.
Katz loves hot springs, fragrant blooming things and dangling participles, and currently lives in the middle of a giant black question mark on a magical hilltop straddling a handful of alternate dimensions.
