"I am truly grateful for my creative practice of Intentional Creativity because I ALWAYS have a 'go to' to create transformation for myself."
~Shiloh Sophia, co-founder Intentional Creativity
You are invited to come together in community for creative exploration of how we can choose to fan the flames of our life force when we choose to, especially useful at the thresholds between seasons when the energies are unsettled. Using inquiry as a doorway, and exploring with writing and moving color, we will gain access to what is most important to us in this moment and tend to what is calling from within.
What the world needs now is more of us taking deep, tender loving care of ourselves every day, and bringing that transformational healing energy of wellness and love into the world. Joining together in creative exploration with the intention of healing aspects of our experience that are available to be explored is a way to create and share the energy of belonging that becomes an offering to the Earth and all of her inhabitants.
Creative process, not product
Of course, when we create anything -- from a doodle in a notebook, to a feast for 20 -- we want the outcome to be amazing. The surprise is that when we create from process, releasing our expectations of how a creation turns out, the meaning and intention behind it weaves into the final product in a way that imbues it with a captivating magic all its own. This is the space we will inhabit in this process.
Our supplies for this exploration are simple and flexible:
- a journal or notebook
- a pencil or pen for writing
- paper for moving color on - anything from copy paper to mixed media paper is just right
- some kind of color to play with: watercolors (quality isn't important), markers, pencils, crayons, pens - whatever you have on hand
- rinse water and paper towel, if using watercolors
- your lunch, if you choose - it is the Creative Lunch Break, after all!
- something delicious to sip on, chocolate, and a candle (or the like) to more deeply engage our process
We will meet on Wednesday, April 12, 2023 from 11:30am-1:00pm (central time) via Zoom. Upon paid registration, you will receive the Zoom link to join in, as well as a reminder sent the morning of the event. This session is intended to be experienced live -- it will not be recorded.
Who is this for?
This is for anyone interested in cultivating ways to create space for their creative heart and inner knowing into their day-to-day lives.
No previous background with writing or painting is required to join us – just a willingness to explore your own experience. Be free to take only what resonates for you and leave the rest.
As you tend the call of the heart and soul for more engaged living, you come to be more at home within yourself.
Fine Print: By joining this gathering, you understand that the guidance and creative process offered is not a replacement for therapy or professional mental health support. If you have questions about whether this is for you, please feel free to contact me.
My vision is a world in which we each become more acquainted and friendly with the deepest parts ourselves, and as we tap that well of inner wisdom, to know ourselves as connected, resilient, and compassionate within and without. From this place, I believe we are best able to engage ourselves and our fellow travelers with kindness and love through all of the twists and turns of life. My creative offerings are one way I am called to foster this playful spirit in the world. I wholeheartedly welcome you to join me in the adventure!
