Armed with a bold (and oh, so sassy) 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 dozens 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. She most recently 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 – a timely collection of simple communication tweaks and tools that support us in up-leveling our communication patterns for the infinitely more harmonious, expansive, empowering, inclusive and effective.
As an evolutionary change-agent, Katz is passionate about supporting self-responsible, rebel superstars in embodying their most empowered, authentic selves. A self-proclaimed (and thoroughly embodied) Empowered Badassery Coach™, Katz guides new Earth superheroes through the transformational process with her trademark brand of fierce, tender, unconditional tough love, and a diverse array of tools, techniques and magic that supports conscious reality creators in taking responsibility for their shit, along with their every experience of reality, and transmuting their shadows into high vibing gifts that fortify their purpose, expand their impact, and make their lives and relationships, as well as our world infinitely more wonderful.
As a Quantum Languaging™ consultant/strategist, Katz supports visionary leaders, creatives, entrepreneurs, high performers and paradigm-shifters in actualizing their potential, up-leveling their impact, optimizing their offerings, streamlining their internal communication culture, and transforming the world with their every word. Katz consults with individuals, as well as organizations (Intellectual Ventures, Taxi Butler, Women In Film).
A colorful and enthusiastic speaker, Katz leads empowering, interactive workshops and has given many a rollicking Quantum Languaging™ talk to executives and free-spirits alike (Lightning in a Bottle, Leaders Causing Leaders, Ra Ma Business School). She is passionate about teaching Quantum Languaging™ precepts, and empowering teens and grown-ups to claim their sovereign authority while creating the world and lives of their dreams with language. She teaches in-person workshops and seminars, as well as online versions, in addition to her ever-expanding high school homeschool curriculum, which includes lessons in Quantum Languaging™, applied linguistics, propaganda and critical thinking.
In fact, it was Katz’s hands-on experience teaching homeschoolers about propaganda that inspired her latest book, 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 and dairy-free, of course).
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.
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 her video channel, Words (R) Matter (which you totally want to subscribe to).
Ms. Katz hosts her own podcast, Word Up with Dani Katz – your one-stop 5D superhero listening spot, which includes Words (R) Matter, PSAs, Spot the Propaganda, Witchy Life Hacks and the inspired evolutionary giggle-fest The CONSCIOUS AWESOME Show which she co-hosts with certified Yesologist, Justin Polgar. 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.
