What we're about

This is a tribe of women who meet to access our own internal guidance system through Intentional Creativity, a process that incorporates journaling, meditating and painting or other art to develop a deeper sense of self awareness. All event hosts are graduates of Color of Woman teacher training, and certified to teach IC by visionary artist and founder Shiloh Sophia. We each come with our own practices and experiences, our gatherings and offerings reflect that.

We live throughout Oregon, from Lora in Clatskenie on the Columbia River, to Uma, Jennifer and Olivia in Portland, Nadya and Sepha in McMinnville, and Heidi in Salem. Check each artist's bio for links to her website and other info. Please contact any of us of you Jane questions about purr offerings, or would like to host an event!

• What are the stories that run your life?

• What if there was nothing you could get "wrong?"

• Are you willing to imagine your story in a new way?

* No painting experience is required, really! We are all artists extraordinaire in creating and recreating our life stories.

"What is yours to cause and create?"

Cosmic SmashBooking - An Intentional Creativity form of journaling and collaging where surprising discoveries happen and awareness deepens. We use mixed media to dive into the deep.

No experience needed. The first session of attendance will be making the SmashBook and then each session will be with themes surrounding creating a life in the fullness of who we are. All supplies will be furnished though attendees may have pictures, sayings and items they wish to add to the book and pages. There will be painting, collaging, transferring images and more. We smash away the old stories that no longer serve us, as we tell the critic "thank you very much and we don't need you here for now." An evening of fun, laughter and meaning - with a Red Thread Circle of connection to start. Snacks and Chocolate provided. Call for address in Southeast Portland.(208)[masked] $45 for your first time and $39 each time after that.

Embracing Mama Gaia - Corvallis

Needs a location

One planet is turning, on her path around the Sun; Earth Mother is calling her children home. Do you hear her call? Do you feel her singing in your bones? In our time together, we will engage in a soulful, introspective journey, celebrating our personal connection to Mother Earth, Mama Gaia. This is a time many of us feel called to that deeper knowing, wishing to listen for her voice, to heed her call to action. Is she calling you? Using the transformative and intuitive step-by-step Intentional Creativity method, we will bring Gaia's profound, powerful, loving and expansive energies onto canvas. Tapping personal imagery and symbolism, each of us will birth our own healing doorway, honoring Gaia and her inhabitants. The messages received will assist us in focusing our actions and prayers. It is crucial for us now, more than ever, to deepen our connection with Mother Earth, not only for the planet, but ourselves. We invite you on this inner Gaian Journey, to Connect, Create and Take Action. Join Nadya and Sepha for a day of grounding and celebration. * warning: wild laughter, perhaps tears, and potent stories may emerge. No painting experience is necessary, really!! Bring two objects from nature: stone, greenery, feather or other object to add to our Gaian altar, plus your journal, painting clothes, and camera (phone is fine!) to document your work. Bring favorite brushes and other supplies if you wish. * In honor of Earth Day, you also have the option to repurpose a canvas or painting panel you already began, or a thrift store find! 16x20", 18x24"' or a square canvas in that range. Wear clothes you can paint in, bring a journal, lunch on Saturday, and camera to document your work. (A phone works great) We will use Golden Fluid acrylics on canvas. Leave your critic at the door, and be prepared to have fun! Your investment in this workshop is $150 (Early Muse: $135-) and includes canvas, supplies, instruction, and use of materials. $25 deposit holds your place. We offer our discount for those who prepay by March 27th, and to returning students. This will be our 4th Corvallis workshop, we're excited to have this time dedicated to painting and exploration - won't you join us? - Our workshop will be held just West of Corvallis, address and directions will be sent upon registration. PLEASE Follow these, not your GPS!! Plan to arrive about 10 minutes early to allow time to settle in.
