The Confidence to Do Your Life’s Work
On this episode, I talk with Ciele Beau an up and coming artist and designer uses her gift of synesthesia - a condition where the brain mixes up the senses and stimulation of one sensory pathway leading to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory pathway, for example - she FEELS colour and SEES shapes when she hears sound.
We talk all about art, having the confidence to step forward and do your work, setting intentions, self-doubt, comparison, music, and much more.
