(It's like Bumble for Weirdos)
Everyone knows to keep their body clean, but not everyone thinks to keep their mind clean. Your environment shapes your thoughts, and every thought you have and every habit you reinforce influences your Mental Hygiene.
Within The Golden Domino Network we help you build and maintain life-affirming practices that enhance your psychology—enabling you to bolster your social and emotional well-being, and THRIVE in new ways.
From diet, to exercise, and meditation... yoga, journaling, and more... we expose you to strategies and tools for priming your mind to access your creative genius.
A Mental Hygiene Movement inspired to prevent 'negative emotional bacteria' from spreading and reduce unnecessary suffering around the world.
It is made up of 3 universal 'Golden Root' principles:
Now more than ever, the average person is desperate for human connection and has a primal need for healthy, positive stimulation...
And for the artist who craves experimentation and collaboration to realize their potential, we provide a digital playground for this, and more...
We bring together purpose-driven artists living in LA, to inspire and hold each other accountable to Health + Mental Hygiene habits, so we can become thriving artists who transcend loneliness, experience more fun, generate predictable inspiration, reconnect with our creative genius, and produce sublime art that people will pay handsomely for.
While the guilds in Italy governed trade, competition, and standards of quality... The Golden Domino Network takes a different approach and strives to offer a set of standards around the artist's health and mental state.
With the pervasive use of prescription drugs, alcohol, and recreational marijuana—not to mention the accessibility of cheap food, social media, video games, Netflix, porn, and other addictive stimulants—it's more important than ever that the disciplined artist who maintains a stern commitment to personal excellence and the goal of making a transcendent, positive impact on society can find solidarity amongst like-minded individuals in a healthy, stable, and conscious community....
And as the artist prioritizes these foundations within an accountability network, we believe the rest of their lives—careers, relationships, finances—fall into place naturally, because...
With so many inspiring and fully present creatives all sharing resources and strategies for staying in the flow, The Golden Domino Network will unlock a new wave of creative genius that emerges around Los Angeles, that then sparks a new 'Golden Age of Renaissance Artistry' throughout the world.
People who refuse to settle: the visionary, the artist, the risk taker, or the person who tries something new—and persists—because they can't help themselves but to innovate...
People who love the white space and making magic out of nothing... knowing how to generate exponential momentum and ramp themselves up into an elevated state of bliss—and bring society along for the ride through their creative outlets...
People who geometrically expand their awareness and think about life from a different perspective... transcending limited paradigms and insignificant details to create games where they always win... engineering their own habit loops and feedback systems that affirm their locus of control and position of influence...
People who've cultivated a mindset that is perpetually tinkering, reorganizing, and recreating itself... breaking through predictable patterns and juxtaposing mundane life in fresh and interesting ways... flipping through bizarre—and borderline crazy—lenses of perception to produce sparks of ecstatic clarity...
And people who can no longer afford to expose themselves—consciously and voluntarily—to downward-spiraling temptations or toxicity of any kind, because such influences affect their Health + Mental Hygiene, and thereby the quality of their lives...
To be more specific: artists, makers, and creatives of all kinds, including musicians, singers, songwriters, DJs, dancers, painters, models, photographers, comedians, actors, directors, writers, animators, graphic designers...
Even some who don't fall neatly into these categories, but are creative nonetheless, like teachers, healers, coaches, content creators, developers, scientists, and entrepreneurs...
These are also the people who will go to your shows, go to your art galleries, hype you up on social media... people who have your back... people who believe in your dreams and encourage you to pursue them.
Through social osmosis, members find that they can dramatically cut down on mistakes and accelerate their growth by listening to the stories and experiences of others.
The group collectively coaches each member, while holding everyone accountable, and showing younger or less seasoned members how to be successful...
And as they ask for honest feedback, break away from the "lone wolf" mentality, and gravitate towards team chemistry and camaraderie—crowdsourcing solutions with help from the network—members make challenges fun instead of grueling, and achieve more with greater ease.

Someone who is open to the possibility that they might be getting in their own way and slowing down the process of receiving everything they want
Someone who is close-minded, unwilling to push themselves out of their comfort zone, and stubbornly convinced that they know everything and don't need help or feedback

Someone who takes themselves way too seriously and refuses to have fun, laugh, dance, play, and joke around
Someone who is unwilling to embrace their own brand of CRAZY and lean into their identity as an artist, who has unique attributes, experiences, and skillsets to offer
