Sepha, Nadya and Maestra Shiloh Sophia,

April 29, 2016.

What got you in trouble as a little girl, when being creative? Did you color outside the lines, or paint pink grass? Write on the wall, or color in a book? What if there was nothing you could do wrong? What if there were guidelines, but not "rules?" Are you a women who wants to support and encourage others?

Do you feel the call to explore who you are, and share your unique gifts? Imagine gathering with a tribe of women who seek access to their own internal guidance system through creativity. Imagine being part of the change you want to see. Imagine sending the critic out on an "important mission" while you are here!

Intentional Creativity is a process incorporating journaling, visualization, and painting and creativity to develop deeper self awareness. Though we create around a theme and have fun, these aren't your typical paint parties. Each painting or creative project will be as unique as the woman wielding the magic paintbrush!

"But I'm not creative?" Who on Earth told you that?? You can probably even hear their voice (we call them the critic)...Time to cross out that old story and write a new one! What story is burning to be told? Did you know Musés light Fuses? As we connect with our creative Musé (https://www.poemhunter.com/poem/when-i-met-my-muse/), our creativity lights up, and the stories begin to align with our true essence.

Our friend and fellow IC teacher Elizabeth Gibbons writes, "By creating with intention, we create a cosmic portal, a quantum field where we can explore our potential and possibilities. We shine the divine light of our higher self into the darkness of our shadow self. We are able to heal and integrate all aspects of our psyche and to access a miracle field, the space between the thoughts where our divine spark lives."
