Hypnotherapist and artist, Vicki Wagoner, encourages creative and personal expression through a simple yet profound process of painting with your hands-no brushes, rules or artistic abilities required! The painting creates itself as you allow yourself to release any fear of painting, unblocking or reconnecting to your inner artist’s creative expression.  Each participant starts with the same blank canvas, and when the session is over, Vicki assists you to discover the epiphanies of new perspectives, possibilities, and insight that have been subconsciously created during the painting process. It will transform your life!  Please wear old clothes allowing your inner child to play!  All materials and interpretation of messages in painting included
