Episode 65 with Holly Shaw and Community

May 3, 2020

Calling In Your Guides: Hypnosis for Guidance and Fertility

Ignite your higher power and invite in your guardians! Did you know that the beginning of May is a time in the year where people used to believe that the veil was very thin between worlds?  Kind of like Halloween only more wholesome without the scary vibe;). In this special recording of one of Holly's popular live Sunday sessions she piggybacks on that flower power "veil is thin" energy and leads members of the Performers & Creators Lab artists' community in an online discussion and group hypnosis session opening you to personal guides, angels, ancestors, higher self . . . however you imagine it. 


Normally offered to only paying clients, Holly is making these events free for the duration of sheltering in place and invites members of the artistic community and friends (that's you!) to join. Find out more about how you can join one of these live zoom sessions by clicking here>>

Upcoming Events:  Register for online events live with Holly Shaw, free during the shelter-in-place orders:  The Comedy Lab Open Mic on Monday nights and the Group Hypnosis for Calm and Clarity During a Crisis on Sunday mornings.
