Shiloh Sophia + Special Guests Jonathan McCloud + Jenafer Joy

A message from Shiloh Sophia : Why this, why now? 

Dear One, 

I am inviting you into the alchemical heart of Intentional Creativity®

What it is and how it works. How to use it to navigate the changing terrain of our lives. How to focus on specific healing intentions. And how to curate consciousness using the tool of creativity coupled with metacognition : thinking about thinking.

This page tells you everything you need to know about the class, and it may take some time to read, but will be enjoyable and informative, for you to learn about Medicine Painting. Get a cup of tea, slow down and ponder it with me. And as you read, watch and muse on the material, and hold your own inquiry about what you are healing, gently but with focus. 

We will learn how to alchemize difficult parts of ourselves & stories into tools of transformation - wounds into wonders!  

By working with the idea of the 'canvas' as your apothecary, you will create an expressionistic intuitive medicine painting - moving ideas and energies into physical domain.  

Little colorful bottles with elixirs with mysterious labels, hidden doors, ancient library books in a cosmic apothecary of your own making....curves and lines...colors and shapes...textures and collage.  

This Intentional Creativity intensive is unlike anything I have offered.  

Why this, is because many of us need pathways to healing that are innovative, because we have already tried so many things! And because the state of our inner world and outer world are changing so much, we need tools to help us with resiliency. Why now, just look at the news, our lives, we need to gather ourselves together and create magic!  

This class emerged in 2018 and has been taught online, in Australia and at my Sonoma Studio, Musea. The videos you'll receive are FRESH content, an upgrade from refining this curriculum each time.  

The ideas behind this work are my deepest heart medicine. I am here to serve, and this is my ministry. I hope you will join us for the June weekend, as we collectively paint in virtual circle around the world. Or, you can take this class at your leisure. We make sure all video content is downloadable for you to keep and have time with your own process.

many blessings and gratitude,

Create a Medicine Painting 

A 3 Week Class delivered via video. An Apothecary is a place, receptacle, or a vessel where things are literally put away. Your canvas will be the place this happens. Explore core stories in your personal mythos that are ready to be alchemized in 8 steps. Bring form to the feelings and change how it lives in you. We will use layers of glaze, color, symbols, equations, codes, stitches and ideas. You will experience expanded space...and play with paint! There will be some collage with paper and ribbon.

Ritual Marking to Move Energy

The stored/trapped/stuck energy lives in our field. What if you could move it and liberate space for you to expand, breathe, explore? We will reduce the size the tragedies take up and make and mark remedies. Little colored bottles, secret books, hand written labels collaged, ribbons stitched in. Experience release...  

Visual Journaling with Jenafer Joy will offer integration of the entire experience.

Alchemizing New Pathways

This is an intuitive alchemical painting process that you can't get wrong. We will be working with the apothecary metaphor and actually make little drawers and bottles and medicines for what ails you and literally crafting your own remedy with your own creativity! No painting experience is needed. Experience something new... yet old.

Shift your current worldview 

We often see the world through the eyes of the tragedies and hardships we have experienced. What if it was possible to view it from an expanded framework? Where you are informed by, but not hindered by, who you have been so far. Self Discovering invites something truly fresh...Experience new access....

Ancient Cosmic Cowgirls?

These Prehistoric cave paintings from 12,000 years ago in Ennedi Plateau, Tschad in the Sahara Desert invite us to ponder who we are, and what stories we tell. Through exploring the art of ancient and not so ancient art, and how they are used to tell stories through symbol, we will 'narrate' through image, part of our healing journey as text onto our bottles, books in our apothecary. Pictographs show us how to distill important information into condensed symbols...

Through imaginative inquiry, we will reduce and distill core story elements into a mythos that lives in a very curious cabinet. This cabinet is your very own cosmic apothecary. It is only to be opened by you, as you choose to heal what ails you within....

Apothecary Workshop 2018 in Sydney Australia with Shiloh Sophia, Jonathan McCloud and Intentional Creativity Teacher, Lou Reed.  

Lou and the Energy Medicine Institute were so welcoming to us! This video gives you a sample of the Apothecary process, as well as shares from the students about their experience.

What would you create with the extra space and energy in your psyche?

"Apothecary has been for me a process of exploration, an unfolding into a surrender to a new form of expression. The marrying of the therapeutic understanding with the quantum aspects feels very whole. There is something unique in the combination of myth, magic and cognitive understanding , alongside using all of our senses to come into relationship with the canvas so as to allow something to emerge that is so much more potent and juicy than we course plan for." ~Frances Barker

AN ALCHEMICAL ROAD TO HEALING

Intentional Creativity is potent, practical, and powerful for shifting energy and stories. And for reducing and catalyzing suffering, and transforming it into something truly useful. Yes, we have the power to do that! Oh YA Whoop! However, trauma often lives in image-based story. Trying to change the story and how it lives within us, without working with image, often isn't getting the results we need. This is exactly what the process opens: taking the inside thought/idea and bringing it into the form based domain to make the experience visual. We think it. We create it. We witness it and are changed by it in our brains. It is so elemental, and basic, yet by understanding how it works, giving process and language to it, changes HOW we can access it and work with it.  

Our beautiful brains process how we ‘see’ and experience life. We will work directly with what we know about how the brain processes and how to shift these patterns. If you wonder why the same stories keep showing up even after years of mental processing in your life and therapy, then perhaps it is time to try a new modality. The issues live in the field of energy and movie-story-memories in your mind and your tissues. We know this can be shifted and we know that you are your own healer and you are the only one that can shift them. We have tools to take you down that alchemical road to healing. You will experience new insights, innovation, and fresh mojo. Let's just how our thoughts impact our reality, with a paintbrush.  

Even if you have already done a lot of story work, this will be unlike any experience you have ever had. If you DO the class and you don't feel it was worth it, you get your money back (you must do the class however). 

Jonathan McCloud will be teaching alongside Shiloh & sharing about PTSD and how his stories are translated into gifts and skills. The idea for APOTHECARY came from his own story following his 7 years in the military as a pararescueman and how he works to transform 'tragedies into remedies' through Intentional Creativity. A soldier. A chef. Poet. Musician. And muse of Shiloh Sophia.

SCHEDULE OVERVIEW

You can take this experience live OR do the class later, as everything is recorded and downloadable. Full schedule details are provided upon registration. Here's a brief look.

In total, between zoom circles and other videos, there will be approximately 8+ hours of video. You will likely spend longer on your own painting process, going at a pace that works for you.  

Through mid July you'll receive support in a private Classroom from Intentional Creativity Teachers, as well as Visual Journaling exercises with Jenafer Joy and Bonus Sessions with Guest Teachers

Student Tamera Boyd Hays: Bringing Medicine Forward 2019 NOLA Class

Student Kara Young: Good Medicine, 2018 Class

Shiloh Sophia Apothecary Painting 2018

Student Leisl Bryant Apothecary Painting 2018

Materials List Your materials list is provided after you register. You will need printer paper, pens, a needle and thread, acrylic paint (a rainbow of colors), Liquitex varnish or equivalent, and a canvas larger than 30 X 30 inches, as big as you can imagine is best.  

Private Classroom Intentional Creativity Teachers will be in a private Facebook group to support you with your process through mid July. You can share and ask questions, or you can do it in the privacy of your own space and not share. This painting process can be done with the support of a group or solo. 

Information about Delivery The class videos are pre-recorded. You'll have access to download the videos and do the process at your leisure. You will want to schedule more time beyond the videos to complete your painting process as the videos are the 'underpainting' for your process. You'll also receive 3 visual journaling exercises with Jenafer Joy and 3 bonus sessions from special guest teachers. Plus, we will hold 2 LIVE Zoom Circles to connect, support and witness each other through our process. 

Warning Label Engaging in this level of inquiry about the stories and wounds you hold can be intense. However, you are in a safe and protected environment to process in your own home. And will have an opportunity to let go of some of the excess baggage you have been carrying. In the end, the entire experience will allow you to feel more free. If you are in a breakdown, this isn't a good time to attend this class because we cannot provide therapy based support. Prepare for a shift and some potentially triggering depth diving. We will be asking people to sign a waiver that they understand.

Investment in the Intensive This class is potent and worth the investment in time and resources well beyond what we are charging. We also have payment plans and a promo code for students. You can plan to work on the painting in the following weeks - working with what was delivered in the videos. The investment is $297 with savings for Intentional Creativity Students and Teachers. If you can learn to move your own stuck energy, how valuable would that be? And at the end, having a super cool painting?

MEDICINE*PAINTING  

is painting with an intent for healing & Illumination

Challenging times require extraordinary measures. How can processing stuck energy and fear actually be fun and put you in the flow state and provide some relief? We will show you. You don't have to be an artist to experience the benefits of this, you just have to show up with a big brush, a bold hand and be open to self-discovery.  

Is this for you? Of course. Intentional Creativity informs everyone. If you have been wanting to know what Intentional Creativity is really all about, this is it. If you are a seasoned creative working with Intentional Creativity, or an artist, this will be new territory but with familiar affirmation of what you have been experiencing with the expanded language codex of Medicine Painting.  

Painting as medicine isn't new. From the indigenous art making around the world, to early modern Rome, to now, people have been painting as medicine, see more at the very bottom, wait for it...

SHARES FROM STUDENTS

I would like to claim that I Am Here! I've always been aware of the spiritual world but never knew about the spiritual and cosmic identity that we the living have in the world. This course has helped me that I am spirit and connected to all energy and as spirit can expand and extend outside of my physical limitations! I can be as big as I envision myself to be and that I can no longer fit in that small space I've lived in for so long! I am grateful to you all for this experience! ~Milagros Suriano- Rivera

Apothecary is helping me shift my concept of “My Thyme” or my time. I am relaxing into a new rhythm and not fighting the flow of time. I am discovering new possibilities for restructuring what I do from home rather than outside. I’m considering signing up for Giddy-Up with Jenafer Joy as a way of continuing to teach. So claiming My Thyme has become a true balm for my body and spirit as I adjust to this new phase of life. This course is life transforming as we shift tragedy to remedy. I hope to share it with others. It is good medicine! ~Donna Papenhausen

This whole work of the painting goes so much further and deeper than its visual images as Shiloh and Jonathon took great care to help us understand. I am much more able now to be the teller, the creator of the story, and make it MY story. I see this work as a deeper and more profound version of something I have been creating on my own for a while that follows the same principles. Thank you so much Shiloh and Jonathon for creating this amazing course ~Feather Redfox  

Thank you! I am SO grateful for this process. The painting that I am working on is the first painting I have done since 1980. I am in awe of the depth that I moved into, the awareness that so much is going on simultaneously in my life and that this is just what I need to be doing for a whole variety of reasons. Thank you Shiloh! Thank you Jonathan! Thank you team that has worked tirelessly in the background. ~Meghan Humlie

Thank you all in the Apothecary team for creating this course. The structure gave me a space to I to feel into the voices from my youth. I experienced a sweet peace when I painted the broken heart and put the swords in ,like I had really touched the heart of those times and there was a letting go. ~Marsha Donner

What I want to say to Shiloh and Jonathan is thank you for your sharing and vulnerability that allowed me to observe my own stories from a different perspective. I feel hopeful that profound change is not only possible but inevitable as I fully engage the processes of painting and writing provided in this course.There have been many ah-ha moments so far and I'm certain there are many more to come! Taking the shadow box apart and cutting her away from the background that surrounded her was very profound and I could feel a freedom in me as I freed her from her plastic prison. I feel like I gave her new life and she gave me insights into my new life. I had to seal her before I could paint and attach her.The medicine woman/shaman is showing up for me very strongly lately and the face at the bottom of the painting represents me as a medicine woman figure. I'm excited to work through this journey until it feels complete. ~Marie Howell

Artists, Founders, Innovators who have worked with Shiloh Sophia

A wild rebel, edge walker, and poet with a paintbrush, Shiloh Sophia has built a movement of intentional creativity around the premise that women sourcing an image of the divine feminine within is some of the most radical work that can be done. Her teachings bring women to the canvas to alchemize, potentize, and create the legends they want to live. Hers is a world that embraces contradiction. It is about living wide-awake with an open heart, steers away from demonizing and into designing- as in, intentional design. ~ Shannon Thompson, Founder, Shakti Rising  

Shiloh McCloud is an exquisite artist, a great teacher, and a healer. In four hours she was able to heal 40 years of emotional wounding that kept me from painting. Her process is amazing. She draws out the spirit within and guides you in expressing your inner most knowing. Since studying with her I have painted on a regular basis and much to my surprise my work has been exhibited purchased, understood and enjoyed by others. The time you spend with Shiloh is worth every minute of it. Do yourself a favor and pick up that paintbrush. ~ Chief Luisah Teish, Author and Artist  

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. ~ Emily K. Grieves

Let's curate our own consciousness, if we don't, who will?  

What stories will we tell about our lives and journeys?  

What will future generations find about the stories we tell with our art?

I stand in my own light Song sounds through me My muse is relieved For The trust given Resilience grows Assessable for gifting  

Thankful for this medicine Thankful being here Thankful for threads Of connection hearts Of golden reds
