ABOUT INTENTIONAL CREATIVITY
Intentional Creativity is a movement founded by US Artist, poet and Entrepeneur Shiloh Sophia Mcloud. This method invites one to approach creative practice with a sense of mindfulness and purpose. It is a process whereby personal inquiry is at the heart of creation thus allowing the canvas or whatever is being worked on; to become a place where what lives inside can be fully expressed into form. Through bringing into form our deepest desires, messages and information from within, transformation and healing are possible.
I graduated as an Intentional Creativity coach after completing Shiloh Sophia’s intensive teacher training in 2013 and have since taught up to 100 classes that focus on utilizing creative process as a path to re-connect to self and to the earth.

Your Guide and Facilitator:
Calling all eARTh sisters!
Now more than ever we are being called to stand up for mother earth, to protect her, to heal her, to respect her, to honour her – but before any of this is possible it is essential we restore and recognise our sacred and symbiotic relationship to the earth. A relationship which indigenous peoples of the world have known since time beginning.
I invite you to join me and a group of likeminded women on a creative nature immersion designed for you to re-connect back to and remember your sacred relationship with the earth through Shamanic journeying, ritual & ceremony, drawing in nature and painting using Intentional creativity and Soulscape processes to bring to life your own unique image of Tree Woman.
The intention of this retreat is to:
• CONNECTback to nature physically by spending quality, quiet time nourishing and relaxing on 45 acres of lush bushland in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
• CELEBRATE woman in nature and the life giving, healing qualities of the tree.
• VISION your body as the body of the earth through deep Shamanic drum journey and active meditation.
• HONOUR the earth and your place in it through sacred circle, ritual and Red Thread ceremony.
• OBSERVE by drawing in and from nature
• CREATE a BIG mixed media painting of Tree Woman; she who reflects and reminds you of your relationship and responsibility to the earth.
Soulscape TM is an instinctive & experimental mixed media process based painting method informed by a close observation of the natural world and of your inner, dream world. Through the merging of these two worlds on canvas a SOULSCAPE TM is created.
The images created are essentially spontaneous and impromptu; born from natural, instinctive creative impulses. I seldom have a plan or even know what it is going to happen on the canvas. Not unlike intuitive methods, it is a process whereby thecanvas often informs the artist, the story unfolding layer-by-layer, mark-by-mark. It is a process suited to any level of art skill
“Soulscape is where earth connection meets creative expression.”
