Episode 67 with Holly Shaw and Community

May 29th, 2020

Wake Up From The Fear Trance

Where are you letting fear run your life? Listen to this recording of Holly's recent Sunday Session where she begins by finding out from the creative community - what are their fears? We discuss breakups, career, family, relationships, the fear of being disliked and the political fear trance we're all under the spell of.  Listen to this recording and allow yourself to feel bigger than your fear so that you can be a catalyst for change! 


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>>
