A native of Des Moines, Iowa, Lauren Hickman's work has been called both "fierce" and "vulnerable" -- the variety of her experience lending to the unique voice of an old soul -- both troubled and transcendent. Having trained under astrologers and metaphysical teachers from childhood, she continues intensive study of traditional Reiki and Ageless Wisdom studies, serving the community with intuitive counsel and healing sessions in Brooklyn. Lauren studied literature and writing at Central University and has written, acted, directed and produced the underground film flick. She is now working to complete her first memoir, All the Pretty Bottles.
