OVERVIEW: (We’ve only got 15 SPOTS so please book early!)

The interesting thing about perfectionism is that it looks different on everyone. For some, it can be an overpowering impulse to focus on every detail, even when it doesn’t matter. For others, an unyielding need to make sense of the world and every situation in it. But for almost all, it’s a lense we carry into each area of our lives, that distorts everything we see.

I started this journey into “letting go” about 6 months ago. For a long time I wondered what lay beyond the death-grip of control. I thought it might be Freedom — all I’ve ever wanted to do, or be. So far though, my biggest discovery hasn’t been so much in what I’ve gained, but in truly understanding what I’m letting go: my “image of myself” — my humanly-impossible expectation for everything I believe I SHOULD be and SHOULD do. Since when you finally let go of all those expectations of what SHOULD, all you’re left with is what IS: The person you are in this moment, full of hopes, dreams, fears, and anxieties. And rather than needing to “figure it all out,” you’re able to just live in it, and enjoy life… as it is.

And that, is our greatest hope for you in this experience: To teach you how to finally let go of what “should” in your life, so you can embrace what “is.”


By blending the worlds of painting and NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming), we’ve created an experience that summons all your senses, to teach you how to let go of control. We chose painting because it mirrors how perfection often shows up in our lives: As a continual striving to capture some external image, emotion, or idea through a process of unending refinement.

— But imagine if we could turn traditional painting on its head. What if we completely removed that image of expectation, and instead asked you to paint from where you are in this exact moment… with no pressure to figure out where you’re going, or how you’ll get there.

— Further, imagine if you had almost no control… if you could not influence what your final painting became? What then? This is exactly how we’ll be painting; in a way that mimics not perfection, but how we actually hope to live: Here and now.

NLP on the other hand, is the “science of perception.” It studies how our brains and bodies receive information, and transforms that information into perceptions unique to each of us. These perceptions direct everything we see, think, feel, say, and do — most especially our need to control.

— Using NLP, we will show you exactly how your body processes external stimuli through your 5 senses, to generate perceptions related to control.

— More importantly, we will guide you through specific tools & exercises you can implement on your own to change how your brain interprets triggering situations; so you can construct perceptions that work for you, rather than against you.


We hope you’ll have a ton fun and make new friends who share the same struggles as you. But more so, we hope you’ll learn how to see the world differently, free from the grip of control; that you’ll know in your bones exactly what that freedom feels like; and that you’ll leave equipped with a few new tools that you can apply in your daily lives, to live the life you ultimately want. Oh, and you’ll get a kick-ass new painting too 🙂.

At the age of 16, Nedaa Salameh was forced to marry a man she’s never met. And over the next 15 years, he broke her.

He snatched her from her family, forbidding them from ever speaking. He locked her in the house, so only he could enjoy her beauty. And he stole her 3 young children away from her, ensuring she’d never see them again for another 20 years… But most of all, he took away her voice — her sense of self.

Today, Nedaa stands in a very different place: She lives in America, works to support herself, and is married to a new man who believes she can accomplish anything. But the biggest change is that for the first time in her life, she’s learning how to hear her own voice.

In the silence of “pouring paint,” Nedaa’s learned that not only does she have a voice, but that it’s actually worth listening to. She’s discovered how to hear her intuitions, instincts and desires, and embrace them as they arise. And in allowing herself to accept herself, as she is… she’s learning how to embrace others, as they are.
