I teach Intentional Creativity because of its ability to catalyze profound shifts in consciousness, allowing those who engage in the process to intuitively make decisions about how they want to show up in their lives. It brings them into alignment with their personal medicine - they become their own healers, and that is empowering!

INTENTIONAL CREATIVITY® TEACHER + MENTOR

Caroline has always been moved by the power of raw expression and storytelling through image, language, design, and movement. She is inspired by nature, the intersection of art and science, deep conversation, paradox, heart wisdom, and love as a way toward healing.

Having only dabbled with 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 art of Shiloh Sophia. She followed her soul's call to study with Shiloh in the life-transforming Color of Woman program and completed the certification in 2017. 

Painting and Intentional Creativity® has supported Caroline’s personal mind-body-spirit 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 has completed a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing and received awards for high academic achievement in nursing education, and was recognized for her achievement as a student of Indigenous ancestry. Caroline 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. Additionally, Caroline is a certified Jikiden Reiki practitioner.

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 way to awaken to our deepest truths, heal, and grow.

Whether you're at the beginning of your healing journey, have been on it for many years, or are somewhere in between, Intentional Creativity brings you into direct relationship with your intuition, the quantum world, and divine wisdom. It opens you up to expand your ways of knowing, feeling and being, regardless of where you are on your path.

Intentional Creativity is taught by women, and 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.

With Intentional Creativity, both the right and left hemispheres of the brain are simultaneously activated while being in direct communication your heart's intelligence. This allows for access to more information and an enhanced capacity to process this information in an integrated, whole-being way. Intentional Creativity is a technology that facilitates making the invisible, visible.  The images and language  created during the process are sourced from within the one creating, and the process is guided by the teacher.

>> The act of creating with intention is what transforms the stories <<

 

Intentional Creativity is a powerful, alchemical tool that supports the empowerment of those who desire personal transformation; providing an opportunity to purposefully choose to create stories that will help grow them and let go of the stories that may hold them back.

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.

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, and creation itself.

Shiloh Sophia explores the depth, impact and layers to which creativity can be used as a mindfulness practice for ourselves, each other and the earth.
