Prolific artist and dynamic promoter of the Powerful Present Moment, Kat Dawes, creator of NOWism, takes a stand on behalf of the NOW. Implementing an iconic, global Consciousness Campaign humorously highlighting the need for an upgrade in the Quality Control Department… of our thoughts.
Bringing the future into the present moment Kat reminds us that global transformation takes place through individuals. With sharp wit and rhythmic grace, she is a funky messenger on a profound and entertaining quest to Save the NOW!
Kat: My name is Kat Dawes. I’m the universal promoter of the Present Moment. My brand is called Nowism. My created mission in this life has been to promote the present moment and to encourage myself ultimately to consciously participate in my own evolution. And from that space, I’ve become like a distribution center of that divine message.
Bram: How long have you been doing this in its current or similar form?
Kat: I wanted to say now but I understand your question. It must be about five years. I’m thinking five years. Yeah, it was born from a painting that I was painting. It was like a contemporary sort of meditation man Buddha type, sitting in meditation. And it was very asexual. And as I finished this beautiful little drawing, I thought this person is practicing Nowism. That was when my stars aligned, angels sang, and I thought, yeah, it’s really great work.
Bram: What is the flow of your travel? Do you pretty much stay here (Bali) most of the time or are you traveling around the world?
Kat: Yeah. Wherever the wind blows. I have discovered that the idea of travel is anchored in expansion, and the more I travel, the more I expand my own awareness. I love being enriched by the interactions that happen abroad. I don’t have insecurity about that. I think there’s a culture in the west around travel that it takes a lot of preparation and a lot of decision. It’s like a serious thing to travel. And for me, I can decide to pick up and move overnight. It’s not really a drama. And I’ve discovered that home is where the Now is, and so from that space, yeah, there’s nothing quite as delicious as the adventure just now, going now.
Bram: Tell us about some of the places you’ve been over the last few years.
