Dear Wild Ones Called to the Colorful Threads of Creativity,
I am pleased to share the Intentional Creativity Curriculum for 2018. I hope you will consider joining us for some of the festivities of heart, art and soul happening online and in person.
Intentional Creativity isn’t just a class or concept. Isn’t a brand. Isn’t something we made up. It is something ancient. What our community is doing is shedding a light on how creating with mindfulness transforms how we are living. Some have said, that their relationship with Intentional Creativity is more like a lifestyle. It isn’t a painting style. It isn’t my work. It is our work, together as a people. To wake ourselves up and show up and have a great time in the process!
It isn’t limited to painting, or writing, but to all mediums including making soup and making love. Intentional Creativity is an approach to live by in which we bring mindfulness to the acts of our hands, hearts and bodies and are informed in the process.
We live by the Muse Moon so don’t try to keep track of everything we are doing around here. We just say – go where you are drawn. And follow the trail of the wild self to that place and you will find us there just in time. Yes, we will already be there waiting for you!
Over three hundred women travelled with me last year in deep trainings and thousands more for daylong or weekend classes. It is not suggested to take more than two courses at a time.
This graphic sums up my core Intentional Creativity Curriculum for those desiring deeper study in this incredible work of waking up through your own wild creative process.
There are also LOTS of classes by Intentional Creativity Teachers who are Color of Woman Graduates and they too will be sharing their work throughout the year.

Sending much love for your course of study in 2018. Intentional Creativity is life saving for many of us – is like coming home and creates resiliency.
When we create with intention, we are changed, the work is changed and those who relate with it can also be changed.
I have been working on this work for over 25 years. I have not stopped. Have not taken my red cowgirl boot off the path. And it is my great honor to share it with all of you. I give thanks to my mom, Caron McCloud, the poet mother and Sue Hoya Sellars the painting mother, for training me in these great and wonderous mysteries. And thanks to those of you who work with us to bring this work out into the world and our communities at large!
With love along a very colorful and grateful thread,
Maestra Shiloh Sophia
