Intentional Creativity® is a philosophy of infusing what we make with intention, through mindfulness and embodiment. This approach to making our art can be applied to any medium and any thematic topic. Think about the last time you were presented food and the difference between smears and disorder on the plate, or a presentation curated with love. It is not a mystery that human beings by and large, prefer something curated with mindfulness from the maker. Everything we make and bring into form has a level of intention. Our work specifically, is to make this approach conscious, practice it in our art forms and the ways we live.
Working with this level of awareness can cause awakening at an exponential level, as well as catalyze healing and move stuck energy. The frequency of Intentional Creativity with the power of love is having an incredible impact in our communities - many claim it has been life-saving.
When we make something we infuse it with our energy. As it becomes infused, it takes a charge and becomes a resonator. This charge of energy is returned back to us, based on what we put into it. This is reciprocity at the quantum level.
If we choose to, we can also send this same feeling energy out to others, and yes, it travels there instantly. This is quantum connection. Even after we are done with what we make, years later it can still carry the 'charge' from our intention in the molecules. This is measurable science, intention in action. And we hope, love in motion.

Why We Do it
Painting. Music. Language. Cuisine. Culture. Architecture. Poetry. Theater. Pottery. Drawing. Sculpting. Dance. All mediums, when made with sacred intent, tell a story. A story of the artist, and the time they were living in, as well as what they wanted us to know about who they were as people at that point in history.
We have occupied a physical campus for over fifteen years, and prior to that art galleries for ten years, all in all, featuring hundreds of artists. We have over 200 teachers trained in Intentional Creativity around the world, offering it to kindergarteners, veterans, people in the corporate world, the prison system, social services, foster care, hospitals, therapy, and so much more.
The Intentional Creativity Foundation preserves and illuminates an enduring legacy in mindful art-making. We provide education, research & community building, focused on creating with intention. Our field of practice and study, Intentional Creativity, is an emergent discipline combining creativity with mindfulness. Our project is piloted by the global Intentional Creativity Guild.
