“How do I access the stoned dancer when I’m not stoned?” Listen as Holly answers this question and coaches a professional dancer wanting to find a different way other than marijuana to access her creative genius when she choreographs. The episode covers insights into the way marijuana works with creativity, how to achieve a natural high, the four essential components in creating trance states without drugs, and tips for breaking bad habits. Includes commentary from a musician/composer and a middle-school science teacher who enjoy the benefits of marijuana and see no reason to stop. This episode is 420 friendly and simply provides alternatives for those wishing to create without using substances.
