“I feel Intentional Creativity played a huge role in my healing from cancer....it was my first piece with you that kicked it off....and I feel it allowed me quickly to arise out of a dark place with diagnosis to a positive-minded Knowing to be healed thinking...and opened my mind and spirit to the messages of truth to come through ... healing thought and spirit and thus healing flesh.....my oncologist had no answer for my pathology reports to be so so much lower than when initially diagnosed......I am cancer-free and stay that way........”

“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.”

“Intentional Creativity helped me reconnect to and be able to listen to my body. I was completely disconnected from the neck down....believing that my body couldn't keep me safe and my body always failed me. We were in constant conflict with each other and I engaged in behaviors that were unkind and unloving toward her. IC allowed me to access those stories, create dialog and form a loving relationship with my body which has impacted my health in a positive way.”

"Intentional Creativity has been a game changer for me! I was blessed to create a physical healing while participating in one of Shiloh Sophia’s retreats. Recently I had been diagnosed with a serious life threatening intestinal disorder. During my painting process at the retreat, I purposely decided to ‘place’ it into a container I had painted onto my canvas. As I made each brush stroke I declared: “my illness can live in here now” I approached this with a playful energy and no expectations. In order to truly believe in what I was doing, I even went off of my medication! My illness and symptoms have never returned and it’s been over a year ago! Such is the potential power of Intentional Creativity!"

"Shiloh Sophia is the real deal. She shows up as herself. She boldly claims her truth. Her teaching is wildly transformational. I'm blown away by how she gifts the world with her feminine wisdom, her process of Intentional Creativity and then, empowers others to take what she has given and share it with the world.
Shiloh has stretched me over and over to keep questioning, go further and dig deeper. She gives structure and frees beyond the structure. She guides with compassion, care, and radical grace, a beautiful way to be led. My gratitude runs deep for the gift of Shiloh! She has given me the tools to recover my voice, claim myself as an artist, and honor the feminine on my daily path. Because of her, creativity and sacred vision is threaded through all! "
~Ally Markotich, Intentional Creativity Teacher
"I discovered IC in the darkest period of my life - I had just suffered a huge betrayal from my childhood church and my then-husband had cheated on me. IC gave me the tools I needed to survive that period and to finally pursue my own needs and interests. For the first time, I took responsibility for my own life. Three years after my first class, I am working in a field where I get to change lives...Intentional Creativity transformed my life. I don't say that lightly. Through creativity, I was able to reclaim parts of myself I had forgotten and was able to step back into the role of creator of my own future.”
"I have emerged on the other side of hell after being subjected to sexual abuse for 8 yrs of my childhood by extended family members. I kept silent until my 30's; have had years of therapy, searched countless avenues for healing, and with Intentional Creativity, I feel like I have finally come home and into my own arms. I am on my way back to my own wholeness now with tools for healing myself and my family, and am even now reaching out to others."

"First, I want to say Thank You Shiloh for creating this immersive experience.
The highlight of my experience during Prima Materia I would say was witnessing the immediate impact and shift catalyzed by this process had on the other women who attended. In particular, the vivid dreams and the downloads of information they had access to after the first day. As I shared with the group, I for one could not catch my dreams as I slept with my brushes under my pillow, yet since returning I can say that my dreams have been coming in more clearly and I am thrilled at this opening of my consciousness.
I enjoyed learning how to clear the energy with my brush from my field and body was such an empowering ritual. This ritual alone helped me make a shift in allowing me to stand in the power and knowledge that I can move that which no longer serves me and make space to truly embody my connection with creation. Embracing nature as you see your reflection in it has been truly wonderful. The rain is no longer just rain and I now listen to the wind differently.
I was quite aware as I supported the group in mixing the pigments, that it was like caressing my own body. Aware of how the textures and colors felt in my body as I embodied with sacred respect for the elements of pigment and water and even how my breath was encoding the slur that I was creating for our intimate circle to use to bring our deepest content with. The gift for me is in witnessing the power of the collective as we were weaving our energy into every activity and everything we touched, created, and put our hearts into during our time together. As we did the Dance of the Phoenix, i envisioned us all soaring high in the air twirling and gliding in vibrant colors, becoming one with the air, clouds, and cosmos, carrying each other in currents of love and acceptance like ribbons of Red Thread.
I look forward to exploring this new way of seeing and being through the eyes of the Pheonix. In gratitude"
