Shiloh Sophia McCloud

Shiloh Sophia lives life as a great adventure! A renaissance woman who communicates her philosophy through paintings, poetry, teachings and entrepreneurship. For 25 years she has dedicated her soul work to the study and practice of creativity, as a path of healing, which provides access to consciousness. As a curator and gallery owner, she has represented her own work, as well as hundreds of women artists. By the age of 40 she achieved incredible success through being in the top ten percent of sales for contemporary artists in the U.S. Her prolific intuitive painting process led to a desire to teach and provided the foundation for the groundbreaking work on how Intentional Creativity® can give voice to the soul. Her method of  ‘creating with mindfulness’ has reached tens of thousands of students who have gained insight into the hidden self. 

Her work is taught widely, at Universities in MA and Phd programs, the United Nations CSW, and by hundreds of Certified Teachers and Coaches. At the core of her work is a belief that the right to self express is one of the most basic human rights –  “We have a right to know how to access what we think, feel, believe and to express it in our lives.” Her life path is a spiritual practice, and an offering, that was awakened with the feminine Divine. Her research dives into the exploration of the right/left brain connection with the heart and re-inventing personal archetypes as gateways to liberation. "When we find freedom from the trauma of our stories, we can invent our own legends, and do the sacred work of organizing our consciousness.”

Flora Bowley 

Flora Bowley (pronounced bowllee) is an artist, author, and gentle guide whose soulful approach to the creative process has transformed thousands of lives. 

Blending over twenty years of professional painting experience with her background as a yoga instructor, healer, and lifelong truth seeker, Flora’s intimate in-person workshops and popular online courses have empowered a global network of brave painters, while creating a new holistic movement in the intuitive art world. 

Her first book, Brave Intuitive Painting, provides a luminous documentation of this innovative approach, while Creative Revolution dives even deeper into the transformational potential inherent in this way of creating. Flora’s own vibrant collection of paintings can be found in galleries, shops, and printed on unique products around the world. 

Flora believes that creative expression is waiting to unfold within every person who is brave enough to trust, let go, and explore, and it is through this kind of heartfelt expression that truths are revealed, lives transform, and new worlds are born.

Flora lives with her partner, Jonathan, his son, Miles, and their spirit dog, Pearl, in Portland, OR.

Dare to Encounter your MUSE!

Chris Zydel

I’m Chris Zydel, Wild Heart Queen and when I was 24 years old I went to my mother and asked her “Is this all there is to life?”

She said “Yes” and I said “I want a second opinion.”

I moved to California and discovered to my ongoing delight that she was more than a little bit wrong. Since that conversation with my mother 38 years ago, I have devoted myself to proving to her and to me that life can be deeper, richer, more joyful and more meaningful than she ever had the privilege to experience.

I came to my creativity pretty late in my life because I didn’t believe that I was a creative person. I was tortured by the inner critic, paralyzed by low creative self esteem and longing to be more creative but unable to make it happen. Now, it’s all I do. My creativity is my spiritual practice and my medicine. It keeps me healthy, sane, alive and whole.

I’ve also been a bit of a personal growth junkie and in my approach to creative restoration I weave together everything I have learned over these many years. This means that you can expect to experience lots of bizarre and fabulous things if you choose to hang out with me– one of the benefits of my obsessive need for constant transformation and healing.

We all have an inner world yet many of us don’t have the keys to get in.

Creativity is the abracadabra that opens the hidden doors to the incredible world inside.

When we paint, and are open to receiving information, 

our Muse is like a golden retriever jumping up and down yelling:

I have been trying to tell you this!!!!

~ Shiloh Sophia

What you will experience in our class...

Each of us will be alternating giving lessons so your painting will include all of our teachings combined! How exciting is that? 

Brave Intuitive Painting techniques and prompts for going deeper in your practice.

Painting with Fire teachings that light up your mind and heart and body.

Intentional Creativity® methodology for how to ‘listen’ to the message in the painting

You will begin a wildly daring painting with layers of freedom and loving woven in.

Release old patterns of fear in creating and discover how intuition is connected with creativity.

Employ the biggest brush you have! You are going to need it, spray bottle, and wild colors of paint you might never use.

Our hope for the day is to guide you towards a deeper relationship with your intuition and introduce you to how we each relate to our Muses.

A Letter from Shiloh Sophia:

I can’t believe my good fortune. The three of us have been working on getting this date together for a long time….and here it is - whooooop! If you have worked with any of us, or all of us, be welcome. 

I had the gift of having Both Flora and Chris on my Power Creatives TV show last season - and we each taught a class. What was amazing is that I did not know how different each of us actually taught what all three of us call Intuitive Painting.

After that experience I was like - wow - how cool would it be for our community to experience us together?

I really love Flora and Chris - deep within my heart - to have women like this as friends and colleagues is incredible and to share them with you. 

I hope you will not miss this chance to be with us. Let’s go with a breakthrough shall we?

You can watch my interview with Flora here and with Chris here.

I have a hopeful heart that you will join us!
