Episode Description

Have you ever been accused of being “too sensitive”? Find out how your sensitivity is actually a superpower, not a hindrance, when it comes to being an artist in this episode with psychotherapist, BrettRhodes, who specializes in HSP, or Highly Sensitive People. You’ll learn about the D.O.E.S. characteristics of this trait, how to know if you are HSP or not, and how you can use it to benefit your work as an artist and use it as guidance instead of triggers. Holly & Brett play a fun game with listeners’ commentary - “Highly Sensitive or Not?”

Performing artists are the imagination mavericks, creative pioneers, and shamans of today and here you’ll discover the inspiration and expertise to find your edge and explore greatness.

Host Holly Shaw, a Bestselling Author and Creativity Coach to Emmy award winning and Grammy nominated artists, includes spotlight coaching sessions and conversations with artists and experts, as she shares her wisdom from a lifetime of performing, as a former SAG actor, dancer, choreographer and director, invoking an inspiring atmosphere that’s overthrowing the stereotype of the starving artist one episode at a time.

Covering an array of topics, from the more esoteric like sex and creativity or shamanic performance techniques, to the more down-to-earth, like how to overcome stage fright, creative blocks, and promote yourself as an artist, there is constant reinforcement of the idea that a creative mind, opened to its own genius, has the power to change the world.
