INTENTIONAL CREATIVITY® TEACHER + MENTOR
Caroline has always been moved by the power of raw expression and storytelling through image, language, design, and movement. Her creative work is inspired by the domains of quantum physics, metaphysics, heart wisdom, the mind-body-spirit -field connection, feminine principals, holism, and a deep connection to Mother Earth.
Caroline’s creative and healing work is driven by a passion to move energy through her hands in a way that heals and inspires. Her writing and art are reflections of her story and the story of many, both present and ancient. Her creations are informed by her own personal growth and evolution and all that causes her to feel deeply connected both internally and externally.
Having only dabbled with writing and creating visual art throughout her life, Caroline found herself committing to a creative path in 2016 when a series of synchronistic events lead her to the poety of Victoria Erickson and the art of Shiloh Sophia. Caroline followed her soul's call and worked privately with Victoria who supported getting her published with the Urban Howl, and then to study with Shiloh in the life-transforming Color of Woman program which she completed in 2017.
Painting and Intentional Creativity®, as well as her love of writing poetry, has supported Caroline’s personal healing journey in profound ways, and opened up a new world both personally and professionally for her. This opening has allowed her to blend a passion for creativity with wisdom gained through lived experience and formal training gained along her path.
Caroline completed a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and has worked in the Mental Health and Addiction field for the past decade. She is a graduate of the Whole Health Medicine Institute, founded by Lissa Rankin, MD, and is certified to guide others through the Six Steps to Healing Yourself program. Caroline is also certified in Jikiden Reiki.
Caroline was born and raised in Prince Rupert, a small town on the rugged North-Coast of British Columbia, Canada. She currently lives in the Comox Valley, on Vancouver Island, BC, sharing a home with her husband, kids, and fur-babies.
WHAT IS INTENTIONAL CREATIVITY®?
Intentional Creativity® is a tool for gaining access to and awakening to our deepest truths, to assist in healing the body-mind-spirit connection, and facilitate personal and collective growth.
Intentional Creativity is taught by women certified in the method. It is rooted in the belief that we hold the power to shift and change dis-empowering stories about our past, present, and future through deliberate action using inquiry, writing, painting, guided visualization, and body awareness. It has been brought into schools and universities, hospitals, corporate settings, non-profit organizations, prisons, foster-care systems, faith-based centers, and many other community settings around the world.
Intentional Creativity is a technology that facilitates making the invisible visible, from where we can receive answers to questions, gain clarity on who we truly are and what we are here to cause and create in our lives and in the world. Intentional creativity amplifies self-awareness and strengthens intuition, and can open us up to expanding our ways of knowing, feeling, and being, regardless of where we are on our paths. It engages the brain, body, and heart through inquiry and visual language - asking a question while painting or drawing while in a flow state. When working with image and language this way, both the right and left brain are activated while being in direct communication with the heart's intelligence and the field - this facilitates access to more information and an enhanced ability to process this information in an integrated, whole-being way.
Intentional Creativity helps us heal and awakens us to a deeper connection to ourselves, others, and the word. The act of creating with intention moves energy and can catalyze transformations, both on personal and collective levels. Think of the ripple affect!
IC has deep roots, born from a lineage of creatives beginning in the 1930s with Lenore Thomas Staus, who passed the teachings to Sue Hoya Sellers and Caron McCloud, who then passed them to my teacher, visionary artist and poet, Shiloh Sophia.
