PRESS RELEASE: Art Opening June 1: Ten years of paintings

Art Opening for Shiloh Sophia on June 1

Featuring ten years of Teaching Paintings

About this collection the Artist says:

“This seems like all I have ever done. When I was 23 and left the corporate world, and I entered my world of art making as a full time working artist under the mentorship of Sue Hoya Sellars. I feel like I have barely lifted my head up from the drawing board, the easel, the pen. I see everything through the eyes of the artist. Even my activism, my family and the curating of community are seen through the tip of my paintbrush. Sometimes I wonder what I might have missed. Other times I cannot believe my good fortune.

I have always felt my images were the antidote to the worst things in the world, offering medicine for the wounded stories we carry and create.

Truly, my work is lived out. My inner world reflects the world I live day to day. There is complete reconciliation. Sure there are things I still long for, but in many ways, I feel complete and this show, the Alchemists’s Brush, brings that into focus. The patterns of all of my Intentional Creativity teachings, my archetype philosophy, the painting as prayer ideas, the symbolic legendary mythos, and the idea that each of us has our own information and must learn how to find it for themselves, is here, a codex of my body of work.

As I look back over the many years of teaching I have done I find myself surrounded with paintings that I could keep for our estate long after I pass into stardust, but why? Why not have them living in the homes of my community? When I started teaching, I stopped focusing on gallery sales. Sure I have sold many paintings to those who happened to be in my gallery or studio – but I haven’t offered any work online for sale for years in any organized way. 8 years ago I had a sold out show and since then I have just been teaching. I didn’t feel motivated to sell the work because they were teaching paintings – containing so many elements of things I wouldn’t have done on my own. So in a way individually they didn’t feel complete. yet together, I see they have formed their own body of work. And I am proud of that in a different way. I would love for our community to have this body of work in their homes and businesses. Each one is hand numbered 1-33. There are also a few more that are not in the numbered edition.

Here we go. A body of work completed. Following this I don’t plan to sell my teaching paintings anymore. This is a cycle of ten years. This show represents the full circle. I still plan to paint, and sell paintings, but they won’t be like these. They will be my own. These ones belong to and in, the collective.

I am grateful my community, Mary MacDonald and my mom Caron, are coming together to gather and experience and celebrate this milestone. And to my husband Jonthan who has supported this work with absolute loving attention.

This show is dedicated to all of my students, and my teachers.

Signed with red paint and shimmer sauce,

artist SHILOH SOPHIA 
art opening & show, june 1st

Attend in Person – Cosmic Cowgirls Studio, Sonoma CA

Global Livestream preview before the show – join us here.

Greetings! We are pleased to announce the Estate and Private Collection works by world renowned Artist Shiloh Sophia offered for the first time at her studio and gallery in Sonoma, CA. The artist is selling her ten year collection! The pre-show will open on June 1 with an in-person gala beginning at 2pm – 5pm. Friends of the Artist are welcome to stay for cake cutting and music to follow.

Address: Cosmic Cowgirls 75 Fremont Drive, Sonoma 95476. No need to RSVP, just come!

Shiloh Sophia Gallery is offering access and sale of the estate collection comprised of The 33 Teaching Paintings. In an unprecedented move the artist is donating the paintings to the Intentional Creativity Foundation Inc,, a not for profit co-founded by her and her husband, Jonathan for the purpose of funding educational programs for women.

They are currently being offered at a special price point from the gallery list price. There are additional paintings not in the collection, available by request that are either recent or have a special meaning to the artist.

From Cowgirls to Madonnas, Priestesses to Painters, Angels to Matriarchs, Oracles to Medicine Women, the collection features the feminine archetypes as taught by Shiloh Sophia in her groundbreaking 13 step Intentional Creativity® Method. Each painting is hand-numbered by the artist to represent her body of work as a whole. Further, many of the paintings were painted alongside her mentor in the arts, Sue Hoya Sellars (1936-2014).

If you have ever wanted to own a Shiloh Sophia original, this is the time. Shiloh’s mom Caron McCloud says this:

“These paintings are a truly special body of work as they have served thousands of women since my daughter painted them to teach others, they are not just teaching paintings, but hold the stories of those she painted them with and for.”

Shiloh Sophia’s work following this show will be more than doubled in price bringing it to Gallery List pricing. Her long time Sales Manager, and the Curator for Alchemist’s Brush, Mary MacDonald of Toronto, Canada, has been selling her work for over 13 years and says:

“Shiloh’s work speaks to the heart of the feminine in which thousands of women continue to resonate with. Her art is a remedy for the images that women are confronted with on a daily basis that marginalize their body image and their experiences as a woman. Each piece Shiloh creates is a sacred prayer for the person who buys it and on a global perspective for the healing of the world.”

Please email Ms. MacDonald at mary@shilohsophiastudios.com for a Price List (so you can see the price ranges) or to inquire and get your name in for interest. Payment plans are available.

This is the pre-show announcement but photos will not be made available yet. Priority is given to those coming in person on June 1. Once we know you are interested we will follow up with you!

 Artist & Poet Shiloh Sophia: Curator & Co-Founder of Intentional Creativity

 

 

 

Trust the Process.

Last Week I had the opportunity to teach Cosmic Smash Booking at Shakti Rising in a small setting in San Diego. It is a recovery home serving over 800 women each year through woman-centered leadership development, community-based educational services and our holistic recovery program. Thank you Shiloh…

It was as always glorious and wonderful and fun and liberating for both them and me. It was a 5 hour round trip and I did it as service to my community.

However, what I want to tell you is what I witnessed and the power of IC that I have seen before but never quite like this. In the class were two trained social workers witnessing Cosmic Smash Booking for the first time.

One woman attended who is not part of the living-in community. She made her pretty book, we started to write our thoughts regarding grounding ourselves, which eventually we would cover and use color on followed by an image, usually hands and sometimes feet.

At the end of her writing she got very upset and starting crying and would not stop. At first I thought Oh! S**t!  There are two trained women in here what should I do?

However, as always,I hear Shiloh’s voice: trust the process. I noticed she had written only on one side of the page. I put my hand lightly on her arm, breathed in air for both of us, and asked her if she could just take that pencil she had written with and draw a line across the page…that’s it…just draw a line between the pages.

She mustered the courage and did it. I witnessed her come off the ceiling by herself and just continue to draw lines across the page. Eventually she calmed down and made a joke.

She said, “well,I guess I’m not going to able to do that unsupervised.” We all laughed.

I drove home humbled ….

NEWS RELEASE: Osceola Arts – Art in Public Places at Kissimmee City Hall presents Central Florida artist Phyllis “Pannet” Taylor. Ms.Taylor loves to draw the human face and believes that a story lies behind the eyes of every person. A facilitator of Intentional Creativity, Ms. Taylor introduces drawing and painting as an alternative method of creative expression for teens and women who have experienced various types of abuse.

Phyllis “Pannet” Taylor’s artwork
February 1st – 28th at Kissimmee City Hall, Florida

Phyllis’ words:
Various life experiences gave me a yearning to teach art where creativity was integral to the self- healing process. We are innately creative beings though many came to believe they were not creative. During a traumatic & abusive period in my life I could not create as my internal critic was so severe little survived. I felt as if I was no longer a creative being.

I began drawing, even writing, with my non dominant hand to create art as it freed me from my internal critic allowing me to express my anger, rage and sometimes my hopelessness. I experimented, discovered and learned new methods and mediums to use. I had fun, I played and I created again! The more I was able to express myself creatively the freer I became emotionally and artistically, incorporating portraits into my abstracted paintings. My life crisis was the catalyst for transforming my chaos into bliss whereby creating art became the energy for my moving into healing and better emotional health.

I volunteered with an organization that helped abused women get a Fresh Start and I was asked to teach art workshops. Through my Xpress YourSELF workshops I found I could help others in their healing process by teaching them to focus their intentions on what they wanted to let go and begin to grow in their lives at that moment. By acknowledging, accepting and activating their innate creativity the women expressed their emotions visually rather than continue to hold them inside.

These past several years I have been intentionally allowing myself to focus on creating art that comes from deep within my heart and as I move into the third quarter of my life I am dedicated and determined to teaching Intentional Creativity® classes and workshops, in person and online, to reach as many people as I can to encourage them to develop their innate creativity. I want to share this feeling of freedom and wholeness with others, women in particular, many who’ve been abused, hurt or wounded and may still be holding the pain inside themselves. Visually channeling the pain is just one way of helping to heal the hurts and close the wounds.

Creating art is always good – but whether or not it is truly healing depends on you choosing to engage your brain and body in the healing process. It is your choice to engage yourself in the conscious act of creating. Some people don’t experience their art as healing although they may call it cathartic or life-saving. However,the capacity to use art as a tool to know oneself is dependent on one’s intention to do so. This is Intentional Creativity®. Through the teaching of Intentional Creativity® I intend to share my past, with it’s pain and it’s healing journey, with others by showing them how they can release their hurts visually and use image to change their stories. Acknowledgment and acceptance of their creativity and actively putting their feelings as marks onto paper or canvas is another way to authentically express their stories and to re-imagine themselves.

Pulling Stories out of our Bones

I just finished a 9 month dive into myself – a Vision Quest really – using color, story and dance (and lots of tears, self doubt and all out tantrums).

I am proud to announce that I am now a Certified Intentional Creativity Teacher. I joyously join a long lineage of amazing women who teach and heal using creativity as our chosen method to heal the self, community, and the world.

I know there are many ways to do this good healing work, but to do it with paint and creativity is pretty mind blowing!

Intentional Creativity is a way to heal and transform ourselves and old stories using creativity. We intentionally go within and mine for gold and release that which no longer serves us. I personally have let go of some long held beliefs and stories that have held me back for years.

I believed I was broken inside, because of abuse that happened when I was a child. I have carried that with me all my life. I called it that “yucky” feeling. The one that awakened me in the middle of the night and filled me with shame and fear. The one holding me back from flying like I knew I could fly.

Using Intentional Creativity, I intentionally went inside, looked at the old fear and painted it onto the canvas in front of me. I pulled that old story and belief from my cells, my bones. I literally painted that crap out of my body. I transformed it on the canvas and made space in my body for a new story to emerge.

I changed my story!

In gratitude to a beautiful lineage of teachers.

Terre Cerridwyn Busse: I am a teacher, an artist, a mother of teenagers and a woman who fell in love with a river (ask me about the South Fork of the Yuba).

I paint, I dance, I make up stories. Sometimes I do them all at the same time and truth be told, my best work is when I am doing them all at the same time.

I paint with intention. I believe that painting with intention, we can heal and move stuck hurts and energy out of our body. I believe we can change our lives on the canvas. We can create space in our hearts and souls to attain the dreams we desire through paint, intention, story, color and symbol. Come visist me at Cerridwynstudio.com

SPECIAL RELEASE: The Legendary Women Gallery Show 2018 of Guild Members

“Shaping one’s own story is the making of revolution. A story becoming a legend means we open the door to the land of the imaginal narrative. To see things in new ways we need to invite new seeing and self expression. We don’t just rely on reason and what we know to shape the story we want to live into. Or at least we don’t any more.

Legends aren’t born. They are made. With rigor and shimmer and in our case with big paintbrushes, dance moves and poetry. Legends are hand crafted from the stories of the soul. Set free from the cages of the past. Default settings and dead old stories keep us bound. The over-culture and dominant paradigm want us to buy into their story, often invisible but palpable. We say, no thanks.

Awakened ones become a danger to what is acceptable and we become willing to be unacceptable. Once we are free from our cages of conformity we may never fit back in again. And this is a good thing.

Stepping into one’s own legend is a chosen rights of passage that gives one access to what is possible. And along the way, a good time can be found by all!

I don’t know about ya’ll but I think wild awake women is a really good idea.”

Shiloh Sophia
Co-Curator, Intentional Creativity Foundation


For Special Release: The Legendary Women Gallery Show 2018 of Guild Members features the work of both experienced and beginning painters based on the work they created in our signature Cosmic Cowgirl Course: LEGEND.

LEGEND has been running for over 10 consecutive years with hundreds of students. An Intentional Creativity journey designed to lead you into the heart of your personal story with an invitation to transform your life into a LEGEND. The process is focused in image and word and each artist gaining access to her internal voice.

This experience is life changing for how women view themselves, their relationships and their worldview. Plus, it is a a lot of fun, and yes, slightly dangerous to pre-existing frameworks. Most of us have an experience of our voice, as we have been speaking to ourselves from the time we were born, through needs and wants, and eventually thoughts, desires and stories. For many of us however, that voice goes off the tracks and can become an enemy, known as the critic. In the work of LEGEND we transform that paradigm and establish a new relationship with the one within. When we experience an integration with the voice that speaks within us, we can be instantly changed and connected with intuition and being in new and powerful ways.

It is with joy and excitement for the work of women artists who are members of the Intentional Creativity Guild that we present this show.

Get a cup of tea and a journal, pause and just allow yourself to sink into the stories each woman tells through her LEGENDARY SELF.

The LEGENDARY SELF is a combination of fact, fiction, stardust and poetry layered with symbol, code, icon, and hidden doors of meaning specific to each woman’s journey. Most women say they go to a place within their soul that they have never visited before – but once there will never lose access.

This show is made possible through the Intentional Creativity Foundation.

A Brave Calling: Will you dare to answer YES when it comes knocking?

I can’t believe the day is here where I get to teach my very first 13 Step playshop. I am filled with fear, some anxiousness as well as excitement and joy. Teaching a painting process is totally new to me and it’s pretty intimidating when your teacher/leader makes it looks so seamless and easy. I had to remind myself, a few times, that I have something here to offer that is uniquely mine and to not compare myself to our brilliant teacher Shiloh Sophia or some of my very talented artist sisters that I traveled alongside with on this quest called Color of Woman.

My 2 day creativity retreat sold out weeks before the actual unfolding. I was so excited and this excitement continued to fuel me until well after the retreat. I personally invited a handful of people with whom I wanted to share this inaugural voyage with. A few of them extended invites to their friends. I was blessed to share the weekend ten wild brave women.

This teaching experience is critical and pivotal in this quest as it invites you to the edge and I believe we grow when we play with our edges. Teaching the 13 step process is very different than painting as an initiate who is unfolding and blossoming in her quest. You are invited to be present for your Beloved as well as letting go of attachment and judgements. I recommend creating a framework to guide your retreat and to keep you on track but please don’t get attached to it because the energy of the group may direct you in a different way. This requires deep self trust in you, in your abilities, and deep listening to your Beloveds and to the voice of your Muse.

Trusting your Muse in this unfolding is critical for she is mighty, brilliant and very resourceful.

Over and over again, I was in awe of what unfolded throughout the weekend. Each and everyone of my Beloveds blossomed throughout the weekend. I watched them come in with trepidation and leave with their painting of newly found Succulent Wild Selves accompanied by huge smiles on their faces. Some of the miracles unfolding during the weekend included: the releasing of 5 years of intense grief and sadness, a stronger connection to their inner voice, a rekindling with their inner child, and a re-connection with their artist self. It brought them tremendous joy to be witnessed by their beautiful sisters and myself.

Dear Ones, please, please DO NOT underestimate the power of the red thread ceremony!

We began with this beautiful ritual and ended our retreat in ceremony. As a result, my Beloveds dove in deep right from the beginning and each experienced some form of transformation throughout the weekend, including me. I had no idea what they would happen, but what they experienced blew the doors wide open in my heart. The weekend left me feeling like I was high! It took a few days to come down from the planet of sacred painting and transformation.

This creative retreat confirmed in unsuspected ways my gifts as a teacher. I have known forever in my heart I am a teacher. What I didn’t realize I’d be asked to let go of what I thought I was so I could open up to a new way of being in the world and teaching. To be honest, it takes time to adjust. Up until this quest, I had never imagined myself as teacher of creativity but now I can only imagine teaching Intentional Creativity®.

I stood in my courage and bravery and answered the call when it came knocking on my door. What will you choose to do when it comes knocking on your door? This potent magical, transformational process breathes new life into you and your life as well as that of your Beloveds. It all begins with a YES and a deep desire to serve love in all of it shapes and colours.

Creativity at Work: Creativity in School Administration

Creativity is a mindset that allows us
to work our way through the world
in the most positive way possible,
both in our personal and professional lives.
~ Jessica Bowman

 

Jessica Bowman, Associate Superintendent / School Principal, Siskiyou Union High School District, and Certified Intentional Creativity® Teacher shared with me that the creativity research she did while writing her PhD dissertation had a large impact on how she views the world. Through her creativity practice she experiences life in a more positive way with humor and positivity to what could be a pretty stressful work assignment. She believes that without a creativity practice she would be suffering tremendously.

Jessica manages five programs and two high schools and has implemented creative activities in staff meetings that focus on the positive. When the teachers’ concepts of creativity shift, it creates a better learning environment for the students. It also gives an opportunity to relax and breathe.

Stress is especially high at the district office so Jessica’s top priority for staff is self-care with the concepts of creativity research and brain function. Self-care activities and intentional conversation about the environment they would like to work in have created improvement. She’s implemented experiences in meditation, coloring book images and even brought bubbles to work to bring levity to a situation and stimulate conversation.

Jessica finds these activities have an impact on how team members treat each other. They became more respectful of each other, more aware of how others were feeling and why things are done the way each person does them, i.e. personality types, different definitions for words that are commonly used, i.e., what does the word “respect” mean to each person, or “a job well done”? These conversations allow communication to find common ground to operate from and give people space to be more patient with each other. They also discovered an awareness that they had choices they didn’t think they had, i.e. what the work environment looked like. They now know they have a choice and are heard.

Jessica has discovered creativity is a vehicle for transformation and has observed this on a personal level and believes creativity can transform work for the better on an organizational level as well by:

  • Improving the work environment.
  • Strengthening teamwork.
  • Having the ability to see the challenge of the world around us with a different lens, a brain shift occurs.
  • Noticing how each of us goes through a self-analysis process for a problem and how it can be the same or different for different people. The ability to have a self-analysis process comes from a pause from the rush of the daily grind.
  • The ripple effect of benefiting one person at a time which eventually leads to a cultural shift.

Some of Jessica’s favorite resources include Shiloh Sophia McCloud’s Intentional Creativity Method and the books “Big Magic” by Elizabeth Gilbert, “The Artist’s Way” by Julia Cameron, and Creativity by Matthew Fox. In addition, she resonates with the research in creativity generated by Frank Barron, Professor at UC Santa Cruz, Alphonso Montouri, Professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies and Shelley Carson, Professor at Harvard University. Her intention with using these sources is to shift educators into a deeper connection with themselves; a place where they hear their own truth and make internal connections for clarity, purpose, and personal worth in order to create a more productive and positive work environment. This, of course, makes a much better learning environment for children.

10 Minute Intentional Creativity Process

Dear Ones,

I send you greetings and invite you into presence and community.

There is a lot going on the world right now. Whether you are a sensitive or not – you can feel some part of it and it could be causing fear, concern, restlessness, betrayal, anger and the list goes on.

Let’s create resilience through creativity – which is what called us into this circle in the first place. Creativity.

As you know, it is important to let ourselves feel what we feel, see what we see and know what we know – YET – it is also important to move it ‘out’ of our physical body so it doesn’t get trapped and create the resulting other experiences which could range from anxiety to irritation to depression. You can move it out or dissolve it by choice. If it can move, it will.

As this world unfolds, each of us has our part, our piece of the red thread, and so we want to be ‘fit’ enough to manage that. Self care for the mind and heart involves some language usage because we are currently experiencing what we are experiencing in the realm of story. So story can help us move it.

I wanted to just create an opening here – since we do consider ourselves a global circle woven with red threads, to acknowledge the happening that is happening. (This is not intended as therapy.) Here is a simple Intentional Creativity Process you can do to move some energy and become conscious about your co-creative capacity.

Clearing Stuck Feelings

Materials: 3 Pieces of Paper and Pens 

1. Intention (to move energy, get clear, tend the self, etc.)
Write your intention. Doodle a bit to get the energy flowing.

2. Discover what is causing the most angst or discomfort through journaling with big looping words. Might need more pages! ‘Draw’ the feeling inside you. What is the shape of that feeling. By drawing it, intend to MOVE it or free it.

3. Clear: Request out loud, of yourself, to create a clearing in your consciousness, to be an open space you personally are in charge of tending. Write a letter ‘from’ that clarity to yourself. Draw an open shape representing this feeling and image. This open shape will a reference poin you can return to in your mind.

Moving story is more potent when image is used, as well as process. Let’s be at cause for creating our own internal spaces and tending them.

The images above is not my image, but this is a good one that can be used if you want to take it further. If you want to comment on some or any of this process please do so here.

Big love, and lots of pens and paper from the Red Thread Cafe,
