What we're about

We are a tribe of women who meet to access our own internal guidance system through Intentional Creativity®, a process which incorporates journaling, visioning and painting to help us each develop a deeper sense of self awareness. All event hosts are graduates of Color of Woman, or students in this year's teacher training, and certified to teach IC by visionary artist and founder Shiloh Sophia. We each bring our personal medicine basket of practices and experiences; our gatherings and offerings reflect that.

We live throughout the Pacific NW, from Jan in Olympia, Lora and Linda in Clatskenie on the Columbia River, Uma, Jennifer, Olivia, and Rachel in Portland, Sherry in Hillsboro, Nadya in McMinnville, Heidi in Salem, Sepha on the road, and Angie in Creswell. Check each artist's bio for links to her website and other info. Please contact any of us of you have questions about our offerings, or would like to host an event!

• What are the stories/beliefs that run your life?

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

• Are you ready to live a Legendary Life?

* No painting experience required, really!

We are all artists extraordinaire, creating and recreating our life stories.

• "What is yours to cause and create?"

• "What is your piece of the thread?"

And since my Voice Release Sessions with you so much has changed in my life…I am more calm and can express anger without fear. My Voice is at a lower pitch, people notice it. Thank you for helping me release deep pains in my heart.” – Michelle H 2018
