The Change Artist brings Carla Rieger's powerful recipe for mastering self change into a compelling story format.
The story begins with the troubled relationship between an adult daughter and her dying father.
She proposes that the survival of the human species will only happen once we resolve the war between masculine and feminine – both within each person and within the collective mindset. It’s about shifting the domination of the “girl cell” by the patriarchal mindset – which is also a theme in the award winning novel, The Change Artist, which is based on a true story.
If you buy the Change Artist book through any online bookstore, send us your receipt and we will give you a free 2 month subscription to The Change Artist life membership site (worth $40). This is 1 hour of video and webinar content on how to:

We donate 10% of proceeds for this book to The Girl Effect, created by the Nike Foundation and NoVo Foundation to educate people about the positive impact educating and empowering girls can have on a community.
In an era when only the “creatively resilient” among us are surviving it helps to remember that all of us have this ability. To be a Change Artist is simply to reconnect to the archetype of the artist within us all. As Pablo Picasso once said, “”Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”
Or, as David Whyte says, “When you neglect your creative energies they work away at you and almost blacken the inside of you like creosote. One of the first steps is to simply create a sense of spaciousness, to give you room to take flight.”
Here is a TV commercial you have probably seen from the 1990′s called “Think Different”. The concepts bears revisiting because this is a time in history when we all need to recapture the artist within to reinvent our personal lives, our work lives and our organizations.
This was an advertising slogan and TV commercial created for Apple Computer. The one-minute commercial features black and white video footage of significant historical people of the past, including (in order):
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John Lennon (with Yoko Ono)
R. Buckminster Fuller
Jim Henson (with Kermit the Frog)
Frank Lloyd Wright
The commercial ends with an image of a young girl, Shaan Sahota, opening her closed eyes, as if to see the possibilities before her.
