Episode Description

We're starting 2019 with a re-broadcast of this podcast's manifesto! Listen as Holly Shaw explains how performing artists in particular use entrainment, channeling and ecstasy in order to invoke the creative movement that the planet is calling for. Exploring examples from her own orgasmic experience on stage, to that of other artists like Tori Amos, Gabrielle Roth, Mickey Hart, Emily Dickinson, and Rainn Wilson, Shaw shares her vision for the Performers & Creators Lab Podcast. Actor, Jeffrey Weissman provides commentary about the origins of stage fright.

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.
