What is Intentional Creativity©?
"Everything within us, past, present, and future lives in story. When we create around our story, we gain clarity. When we create with intention, we activate both sides of the brain. When we activate our brain, we gain greater access to our own information, how to articulate it and how to move it from the stuck places."
-Shiloh Sophia, Visionary Artist and Co-Founder of Intentional Creativity©
Creating with intention is simply working with mindfulness in whatever we set our hands to, whether it is cooking a soup, planting a garden, writing a business plan or painting a painting. We are more present because we choose to be and the results are different than if we are not paying attention. Intentional Creativity© is an approach to creating that yields greater access to who we are now and who we are becoming, and what is possible for us and our unfolding future.
Intentional Creativity© does not necessarily refer only to painting or writing, rather it expands on a philosophy of being, living, and falling in love with our lives, one another, and creation itself. Intentional Creativity© is practiced in homes, hospitals, social work settings, foster care, cancer recovery, homeless shelters, classrooms, circles and in the form of interactive public art. It is also used in ceremonies like wakes, births or weddings.
