Are you


for a new beginning?

Dear One,

We all work really hard at creating our lives, whether we are on a personal healing journey, or a business idea, or developing our unique style of leadership. And it can be hard to make our dreams come to life, alone.

One-on-one guidance has been the thing that has made all of the difference in my own life and I want to offer it to you. This is very different than anything I have ever offered and I am excited to have you join me in Sonoma in person - for those who can make the journey.

For many of us, the dreams we have for ourselves remain elusive. Sometimes it isn't so much that we don't believe in ourselves and our gifts, but rather we don't know where to take them or what course to chart. Having someone listening and dreaming with you can be the game-changer.

It can seem like there is always something more to do to get better, be more whole, to finally make our dreams come to life. I know because I have been there too, and have spent most of my life working with women to lead them to the next place on the path.

I have realized many dreams, a thriving art business, an art movement, a real authentic community, a museum both in person and virtually, having a global team of women working with me towards our mutual dreams and most recently, Musette, our new gallery in Sonoma where I will be hosting the private daylong sessions designed just for you.

Deep seeking can at times cause discontentment. We rationalize that we are on the journey and that is enough, but it still feels like something is amiss. Things show up in our lives through health, financial or relationship crisis and they seem to keep showing us over and over what we are doing wrong. The pattern persists even though we have identified it and made a claim to change it - it is still there. What can we do?

I have so many tools available and 25 years of practice but still...I felt there was something missing. Do you know what I mean? It keeps us chasing something and we don't even know what it is. Let's gather to find out just what is needed and wanted for your next steps - and create a new beginning.

For me and the women I work with, the answers we sought were more clearly revealed the more we chose to really turn towards the places that are hidden and bring them to light. That's a given. But, more than that - identifying the energetic, physiological, mental, and emotional patterns was what needed to happen. The patterns that were informing the beliefs - but even that wasn't making the change we were seeking.

I began to wonder what could we do? I started to think we needed to create a full-scale life-altering ritual that was almost a Rites of Passage that would mark the change from the old life and self to the new life and self. A new beginning by choice. Not one initiated by crisis, but one catalyzed by personal choice. An initiation guided by an intuitive, compassionate guide.

Yes. A new beginning. A way to say goodbye to the past and let go of all the unreachable future goals we created - and land in the right now-ness. In the Right here and now we can hear our own voices in a clarified way. We can design a sanctuary experience so that you can be initiated by your own quickening.

So often we block ourselves from love, abundance, and access to who we truly are. Let's open the portals to the future by landing in the present. Let's create a major life-changing event together to mark your move to the next place on your path.

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. ~ Rumi

Applying is simply the next step in the process to further explore the Quickening Initiation Journey.

If we feel it could be a match for you to reserve one of the 8 spots, we will invite you to schedule a time to speak with Shiloh Sophia. Or, we will direct you to other opportunities to deepen your self-expression and creative practice.

A New Beginning

First I did the process for myself, designing a personal Rites of Passage that was completely custom for me. Then after I had tried a few myself, I started to ask, how could I do this with and for others? I have so many friends and community members in crisis, and chaos, and when I worked with them I could not get the idea out of my head and heart - we need ceremony.

When I started to design the ceremony I might be able to offer to others I had an aha - I couldn't design it for you. You would need to design it for yourself, but I could help. A lot. I know the ingredients, I am a trained Priestess, I have done the work myself.

I feel strongly that the experience many of us are seeking is the one we design ourselves. But we don't think we are qualified to do the work. With support from someone who has lived their life in ceremony - you can be guided to create EXACTLY what you need at this time for your healing journey. Let's be healed enough.

If you are interested in working with me to design a ceremony for a new beginning - let me know by applying - we only have 8 spots. Let's journey into your inner world and see what part of you and your life is ready to be revealed. You don't have to do this alone. Things ARE different after an initiation ceremony. Let's interrupt old patterns and invite new possibilities.

Are you called to a quickening?

In Love,

Shiloh Sophia

We know this way of working isn't available to everyone - and so we have lots of other ways to work with Shiloh Sophia and Intentional Creativity. Yet we know there are some of you who long for this in-person connection and attention.

Scholarships are not currently available for this level of support. We are willing to consider an extended payment plan. Please state your need by answering the last question in the application.

I would love to have time and space to focus on just you. To share my intuitive gifts designed specifically for what you are navigating.

Work with me focusing on meditation, movement, energy work and medicine painting to design and experience your own QUICKENING

Lady Cloud by Shiloh Sophia


Shiloh Sophia is a fiercely committed warrior of the spirit. She and her work are illuminated, inspired and of the highest integrity. My work with Shiloh and the Cosmic Cowgirls has been immensely energizing, rewarding and awakening.

– SARK Author, Speaker, Mentor

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 innermost 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.

- Yeye Luisah Teish Author, Teacher

Shiloh Sophia is a visionary genius. Her Intentional Creativity work, paintings, poetry, writings, and creative offerings inspire women to rise up and become who they’ve always wanted to be. Her writings captivate your soul and raises it up to the sunlight. She is powerful beyond measure and her words and poems always fascinate. If you long to feel seen and understood, look no further.

- Amy Ahlers, Women's Leadership Expert and Master Coach

Every time I am exposed to what Shiloh teaches, I discover a well of depth, creativity, and intimacy I didn’t know existed. The Divine Feminine mysteries that have been so suppressed for thousands of years burn steadfastly in her very DNA. To be in her presence, to awaken to the muse, and to receive her love, knowledge, wisdom, and Shakti is no less than a priestess’s transmission that will leave you on fire with love.

Co-teaching with Shiloh is an ecstatic pleasure words cannot adequately express. Her Divine Feminine essence, her mastery of the content she teaches, her wild sense of humor and hearty laugh, her authenticity, the depth of her wisdom, her willingness to challenge and face uncomfortable confrontations, her wide open heart, and her love of both teaching and those she teaches shines through with such radiance that anyone teaching with her gets an energy healing just being in her presence. I’m not exaggerating. After I finish teaching with Shiloh, not only are the students glowing; I am on fire too.

– Lissa Rankin, MD, Author, Speaker

A wild rebel, edge walker and poet with a paintbrush, Artist Shiloh Sophia has built a movement of Intentional Creativity around the premise that women sourcing an image of the divine feminine within is some of the most radical work that can be done. Her teachings bring women to the canvas to alchemize, potentize and create the legends they want to live. Hers is a world that embraces contradiction, is about living wide awake with an open heart, steers away from demonizing and into designing- as in, intentional design.

An activist, a woman of faith, and a serial Creatrix, Shiloh contributes beauty, inquiry and the powerful invitation to pick up your brush and enter a portal that you will exit as a slightly different person, if you are willing to risk a little.

– Shannon Thompson, Founder of Shakti Rising

Shiloh Sophia is a true visionary who practices what she teaches. She IS the embodiment of Intentional Creativity. Her desire to share her teachings and wisdom are truly an act of Love. From the moment Shiloh asked me “What are you here to cause and create?" Something inside me knew I would never be the same. It was trust. When I work with Shiloh I know that I am seen. I'm seen in a way that encourages my curiosity and my willingness to explore possibilities, probabilities, and potentials that I would not have dared to explore before. Working with Shiloh Sophia has truly been and continues to be one of the most transformative experiences of my life. ~ Milagros Suriano Rivera

Designing a personal rites of passage is itself a rites of passage that each one of us can experience. We have a lot of choices available to increase our capacity to be embodied, feel whole and create new beginnings. But it can be hard to do it alone. We aren't raised in a culture that makes this kind of work accessible. Until now.
