Engaging the Quest (video) + Shares from Fabulous Graduates
Shiloh Sophia speaks to the class of 2017 about the quest. Not all of this will be relevant to you, but the first 5 minutes or so might give your Muse a little morsel and glimpse into the Color of Woman Intentional Creativity Teacher Training.
How about a cup of tea (hot or iced), kick up your feet and bask in the possibility of you saying YES to this Quest. Just for a moment, why not imagine that you DID say yes…and perhaps listen from that perspective.
Messages for Shiloh from Intentional Creative Guild Members
These comments were posted as part of a discussion Shiloh started about painting and style in our private Intentional Creativity Guild FB Group. They were so potent that we asked for permission to share them with you. There are testimonials that can tell you about their experience with the training – but this is kind of different – as they are personal to Shiloh. We thought you might find them insightful.
I can tell you that as someone who once studied art more formally, more academically, I learned more from you in a shorter period of time than I did in 5 years of college. I sometimes stand back and wonder whether I did Color of Woman training so I could teach or so I could paint, and I’m still not sure, still torn, still questioning, but I do know Color of Woman training and my work with you allowed my own style to deepen and change dramatically, in a way that is perceivable to the people who have been looking at my work all these years.

I am passionate to teach women in my Sanctuary the power of the process of Intentional Creativity, and that when I feel my demo ‘should be, could be, would be better if….’ I see with my own eyes and heart how these women shift in a short afternoon of intentional painting and Create Incredible Magic on their canvases!! And I say “I’m not here to teach you how to paint…thank you for that!!!!! Oh My….they so Get IT!! Humbling indeed!

Dear Shiloh, what you are doing with Intentional Creativity (IC) is presenting a transformational tool for women to break through into new visions for their lives. It is way beyond technical painting skills, though there are plenty of great techniques you share. IC is cultivating freedom of expression using color, symbols, design, and a focus of the feminine that is birthing a new paradigm on earth. Yes, I truly believe that you are a Healer Pioneer, and I am so honored to be following in your stardust lineage!

I have been very focused on painting and selling besides teaching an occasional workshop or retreat. This has been such an incredible surprise to me. Within my work I continue to share their messages and also create personalized pieces for others with intuitive messages included. I love this work soooo very much and am so grateful for all that’s been offered within the Intentional Creativity fold.

I feel your heart open and thank you for sharing out loud what you hold there. I am so grateful to have you as my teacher. I learn from you still even when you think you are not teaching. Your kindness, your uncertainty, your deep love and generosity, are lessons that go beyond painting. I trust and follow what flows and guides me in the cosmos, what flows from my paintbrush, and life, and am grateful it has lead me to this time and place, where I am also able to foster beloveds’ abilities to live and love to their full potential and feel empowered to create their worlds.”

…as the teaching takes a life of its own, and the painting deepens in its own rhythm, style and timing. I LOVE teaching. There is nothing more rewarding than the 1000 watt smile on women’s faces at the end of a 13 step journey, a cosmic smashbooking session or even a quick 5 step process. Keep doing what you’re doing because you are changing the paradigm quantum bit by quantum bit. I am forever grateful to call you my Teacher.

As for painting itself…I have studied painting and have a ‘degree’, but I will tell you that Color of Woman training was the way I synthesized what I’d learned with what I REALLY wanted to do. I was aware that my skill in the handling of paint was something I’d gotten from my schooling and experiences…but giving my own ritual process the validity that you offered was really pivotal. I think what shifted for me was that before, my ritual processes were separate but parallel to the painting. Now the ritual happens ON the canvas and that’s made such a difference.
I love knowing more about you and Sue…and the ways she worked and the ways you are in the world and with your canvases. I love that you offer the awareness of being a painter or being a teacher…and share the difficulty of trying to do and be both.

“Over the years, I have taught many workshops but nothing prepared me for what I would witness in teaching my two day, 13 step creativity retreat. I saw the transformation unfolding with my beautiful Beloveds and it was so deliciously palpable and intoxicatingly blissful. Initially, I was scared shitless to teach the 13 steps as I am not a painter, yet creating this retreat and teaching the 13 steps has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. This teaching experience profoundly impacted me as I literally witnessed with my own eyes the difference that I can make in the world by facilitating this powerful painting process. I am still bathing in the awe, wonder and love of this life changing experience. I now know without a doubt what I am meant to do with my life and that is to teach Intentional Creativity to the world, for it is deeply needed, as is the expression of your unique voice. The Colour of Woman (COW) Quest will change your life in unexpected ways. It has awakened something in me that I didn’t even know was there to begin with. So Dear One, buckle up and enjoy every moment, for it is a ride of a lifetime!”

I completed teaching my 13 step workshop yesterday, I was so nervous but 10 minutes in on the first session, something just happened to me, I don’t even know what it was and I now actually believe I can be a teacher! After all these years of thinking I couldn’t, I can and believe it! Than you so much Shiloh Sophia your work in this world has changed everything for me!
