Helen Litwiler, 2020 Graduate
Intentional Creativity® assisted me to connect more fully with my sacred, loving soul center. My muse is now active and guides me with her playful and fun energy. Additionally, it has prepared me to teach my first Intentional Creativity® class on my own and it turned out so wonderfully. The entire experience, and especially this piece have taught me to: Know you are scared, loved, and precious, I want you to shine like the stars you were created from.

Virginie Hentzienne, 2020 Graduate
The incredible surprise and teaching of this painting was that owning my Fierceness brought me to the most vulnerable part of myself that was in need of healing, acceptance and complete surrender to embody the Wisdom of my Oracle. She showed me that Fierceness and Vulnerability were not excluding each other, but on the contrary, that the first when properly owned and acknowledged, was the Sacred guardian of the other, and the Sacred path to self-responsibility.

Brittany Crist, 2020 Graduate
Everything you want, every gift you bring, every medicine you hold begins and ends with living in alignment with your true self. You serve no one by holding back, by filtering yourself, or by burying your calling deep inside you. It creates trauma in your body temple. STOP! It’s time to honor who you are. It’s time to honor your calling. It’s time to shine. Be Open-Hearted.

Johanna Ringe, 2020 Graduate
I learned a lot in Color of Woman. Apart from learning painting and teaching techniques, it was this growing assertiveness: I learned something, then I taught it and in doing so realized that I had indeed learned it! If you take this class you are going to grow up a lot and enjoy the ride. And we will not at the least understand, afterwards, how you could change so much in so little time!

Julie Lynn Ridenour, 2020 Graduate
The most valuable aspect of the training for me was the inquiry process and the challenges that presented themselves as we wrote along with each painting. Since taking this training I have more confidence and I feel like my creative juices are flowing constantly these days.

Pascaline Emms, 2020 Graduate.
During Color of Woman, I accomplished a level of self-discovery and confidence to BE An ARtist. I was able to establish a process to tap into creativity endlessly. Color of Woman is a great self-discovery journey to learn how to teach others to paint with a purpose a meaning and unleashed creativity.
Painting: The Secret Garden of Emotions
Nancy Deane-Loranger, 2020 Graduate
The Color of Woman training was a framework from which I could journey to learn about myself, to deconstruct myself, and to remember in a new way. After the class, I was able to reveal to the people connected to me that I am an artist, a painter, and a teacher.

Painting: Sovereign Queen of my Heart
Agia Priya Kaur, 2020 Graduate
The most valuable aspect of the training were the heart-felt teachings that stem from love. Through Color of Woman I believe in myself more, I have faith in me and in the women around me, I face my fears. If you're thinking about taking this course go for it and meet your truth, decide to matter!
Painting: Healing of the Feminine
Julie Marie Esparza, 2020 Graduate
It's impossible to only choose one accomplishment. If I had to sum it up into only one accomplishment, I would say that at the end of the entire experience I had grown from a person who had only ever painted one time before to building a business offering painting workshops!

I improved my focus and flow through Color of Woman. I noticed my heart expanding and the desire to teach kindling within me. I'd encourage anyone interested in the training to jump in! This is my painting the Artist Talisman who sits in the East. She is the stellar aspect. There is also a sister painting that represents the terrestrial aspect of the same energy.

Sharon Handy, 2020 Graduate
This Legend painting is my voice, and the voice of Grandmother Moon, reflecting and transmitting the unconditional love of the Creator in the world. She has stepped into her position of leadership, bearing the sigil of Woman Awake in the World on her brow. Spirit Bear and the ancestors in the Aurora Borealis have her back. The 7 pointed star embodies teachings about love, forgiveness, healing, suffering, humility, fear, and holiness.

Christy Cozby, 2020 Graduate
I used to be afraid to decide because I didn't want to erase any possibilities. But decisive action opens previously unimagined possibilities. And that’s how life unfolds and moves forward.

Darlene Cook, 2020 Graduate
The most valuable part of Color of Woman to me was just showing up! It was worth the money and time, commitment. The connection was spectacular. To have a circle of powerful women that are awakening like myself was a special experience. This has helped me to have a way to share my gifts. This is Goldie, The golden ambassador. She with all her wisdom is one with the sun. Prepared for the journey she holds all that she needs. She is the light.

Virginia Masson, 2018 Graduate
I spent my life searching for something I could not name. I wanted to bring more peace to myself and to the world through my art and just being more peaceful was too passive for me. I didn’t know how to move forward into active peacebuilding but I found the answers through the Color of Woman training. Shiloh Sophia provided the process, information, and tools I needed to be able to share my passion for peace with my beloveds. I am now prepared to work as an artist and teacher in my community and the world while putting my own peacebuilding spin into the process.

Lexanne Leonard, 2019 Graduate
Never in my life could I imagine a place where all falls away. Where I am so whole yet I feel as if my borders, the lines of my body shimmer and flow into the universe, the canvas, the portal. This freedom is nothing I’ve ever felt before. Hearing and knowing, learning and discerning, making good beauty, even if it doesn’t seem beautiful, I become One in a way I could never have imagined. Oh, I am full of gratitude to be in this moment where I stand, with paint and brush and the cosmos whispering to me, ”Yes, this is you now. Enjoy.”
Painting: She Who Tango's

Caroline Miskenack, 2018 Graduate
Before deciding to register for the Color of Woman training, I had been living a life of seeking something that I could feel deep within in my bones, but could not name. I tried to find it in my relationships, in my career, in food, and in piles of self-help books after the aforementioned left me depleted. Although I came out wiser about how my patterns and habits had been playing out in my life, and how I could live more from the heart and soul, I was still left searching.
Then, in March 2013, my husband was diagnosed with cancer and I was flooded with an urgency to find the “thing” I had been feeling all the years before. I was lead, for 3 years, down a path of healing my relationship with God, reclaiming my feminine power, reconnecting to my calling as a healer, and then finally landing in the arms of Shiloh and Color of Woman. I knew immediately that this was it, this is what my soul had been longing for. The Color of Woman training is utterly life-changing. I am no longer seeking. I am beginning to live in a truly empowered, grateful, creative, awakened, self-loving way. Now, more than ever, I know and claim my worthiness as a woman in the world. Never before was I able to say, with truthfulness, that I love myself. Never before have I been able to see the gifts my pain and heartbreak have given me, until now. This training has been both a re-birthing and a homecoming. If I were to describe it in one word, it would without a doubt be metamorphosis!

Emily Grieves, 2014 Graduate
Color of Woman absolutely changed my life in 2014 and I am forever grateful to Shiloh and to this extraordinary community of sisterhood for it. While I had always made art (I even have a BFA degree in it, for whatever that's worth) and I had always done energy healing work, Color of Woman not only allowed me to merge the two into an effective methodology with which to reach more people more deeply, it also changed me to the core.
It changed my art work, too! It allowed me to touch the most profound places within myself in my interior, heal them, and begin to interact with the world from a changed perspective of inspiration and abundance, as if the exterior manifestation of my work truly reflected the light I had discovered inside of me. I finally had not only the authentic tools for dreaming my creations into reality, but I had the support network to help me hold it - the red thread is powerful beyond belief!
Yes, all this has grown from Color of Woman! If you're wondering, ask your Muse and go for it!
Painting: Treasure Yourself
Kathy Smith, 2017 Graduate
Before Color of Woman, I was lost—I felt like a soldier without a mission, with seemingly no purpose. No, I had Purpose, but I didn’t know what to do next to move it forward. Two years of waiting and I still hadn’t found clarity on my Next Move. I finally just ASKED what I was to do and got the Answer, “Sign up for Color of Woman!” Cardinal feathers floated down out of the sky at that moment! I was lost, but now I’m found. Amazing Grace.
United States, Michigan
Juniper Mainelis, 2017 Graduate
Color of Woman was such a powerful catalyst for me to use and grow my creative skills! I never dreamed that I would be writing music as a soundtrack for my paintings. I never knew that every day was all about opening portals to my own creativity. I am stepping forward and not looking back! My heart is full of gratitude to Shiloh and her amazing team for reaching across the ethers to connect with me.

Jassy Watson, 2013 Graduate
The Color of Woman Training changed the direction of my life. I graduated in 2013 & have since taught up to 100 workshops for young girls & women in my local community, nationally & internationally with ongoing retreats in Greece & Bali. I have also plunged into my ultimate dream of pursuing a career as a professional contemporary Australian artist. Color of Woman taught me to take what lives in inside, outside. Forever grateful. Say YES!
Olivia Oso, 2015 Graduate
I met Shiloh in Dec. 2013 and my life has never been the same. The experience has been life changing to say the least. I have transformed many “old stories” into the authentic truth and can now say I am an artist, teacher, mentor, sister and someone who is learning what I am here to cause and create in the world. I now have my own art paintings up in a business called Sacred Money Studio and Prosperity Pie shop (since April 2106), where I also sell prints and cards as well as my original paintings. This has brought me into contact with many people I would not have otherwise met and who tell me how the images speak to their hearts and souls.
This body of work that Shiloh offers us, does just that, connects us to something deeper within ourselves, and gives us a vehicle to do transformative healing and empowerment. I have co-led workshops with other Color of Woman teachers and assisted at their workshops as well, and continue to offer classes and one on one mentoring. I love witnessing my Beloveds discover a deeper truth and a reconnection to their own creative soul.
I am continuing to work on my website and grow my business skills, as well as spend time in my studio being with my Muse. This work is so profound, transforming and so needed in the world right now. I know my soul assignment is serving the Divine and showing up to share my hope and Light in the world for others. I know today that I am “good enough” and the world needs what I have to offer. Thank you, thank you.
Painting: In Sisterhood We Rise

JP Kim, 2016 Graduate
I’ve often likened Color of Woman to a college for women. The Intentional Creativity® Teacher Training Certification one can gain from going through the training is as rigorous and thoughtful as any other advanced degree. I feel qualified to make this comparison, as I was a doctoral candidate in a Ph.D. program for Cognitive Psychology.
The Color of Woman course work is so thoughtfully and lovingly organized so as to lead you on a journey into understanding your soul work. I believe this to be a lifelong missive, but Color of Woman can serve as your launching pad, and also help you work through or out of patterns that are not serving you or your loved ones.
I strongly believe in the work that is done here, and have witnessed first hand other’s transformations as a reader for women who participated in the current class. I think I can state unanimously that we all feel called to serve, maybe in different ways, but helping you on your path to being you as you can be.

Saying “yes!” To Color of Woman was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I knew I would learn about teaching others about Intentional Creativity® and develop my painting skills. What I didn’t fully realize was the depth of the journey. This was a mind and soul-expanding process that was so incredibly enriching. I feel so empowered and confident in stepping into my cosmic cowgirl boots and bringing this colorful healing process to the world. So much astonishing magic occurred for me along the way.
I highly encourage anyone who is healed enough and hears the call to jump in with their whole heart. It’s a time-consuming and challenging process, and it was worth every moment. Shiloh, the team, and your sister’s journeying along with you will transform your life and belief systems. Do it!

Moana Whatu, 2019 Graduate
I am a Maori woman from New Zealand. The role of our spirit and life essence has permeated my view all my life.
The Color of Woman training has been a deepening experience bringing together my knowledge and life experiences in the social justice and therapeutic worlds.
The use of Art and Intentional Creativity® with Shiloh Sophia has opened up possibilities that would otherwise not be considered when working with healing or trauma. Words do not do justice to the magnitude of this sacred work.
I am eternally thankful to Shiloh and Jonathan. The support provided is second to none! I am forever changed and proudly call myself an Artist!
I hadn’t planned on joining Color of Woman, but it was such a strong call from my soul, that I just had to listen to it! If I would have started thinking about it, I would have found all kinds of excuses for not doing it!
I gifted myself with this training for my 60th birthday. I wanted to do something special and celebrate, instead of becoming depressed about becoming a “senior” citizen ….
This year has been the greatest adventure of my life that culminated in the “in-person” graduation gathering in Santa Cruz! I don’t have words to express how grateful I am to have followed this training and met Shiloh Sophia, the Intentional Creativity® team, and all the beautiful women who walked on this path with me. There is such a strong connection thanks to the Red Thread and so much loving support. It’s like if the pieces of the puzzle are now coming into the right places and the voice of the critic is more and more replaced by the voice of the Muse, thanks to the fact that I am finally prioritizing creativity in my life. So if you feel called, don’t start thinking about it, trust your inner wisdom and go for it!

Doing Color of Woman was one of the best things I have ever done - the best gift I ever gave myself.
I just submitted a book to a publisher today that will be my first art and poetry book. It is mostly work that I created in COW - and none of it would have been possible without the experience.
If you are thinking about... DO IT!!!!

Sherle Stevens, 2019 Graduate
No one has ever inspired me like this or comes close to showing me how to look for a loftier octave than I thought was in me. Color of Woman taught me how to reach for the broader love, the higher thought, the deeper service. To say Shiloh Sophia changed my life is not a powerful enough statement to make. I actually never intended to paint or draw again in my life after my 40-year career ended nearly 20 years ago. I have been Born, not reborn. Born as an Artist, Revived as a Teacher, and the greatest part- Born in learning how to Serve… and pay the gift forward. I have found peace within myself I have never known because of the alchemy of sharing this work. It has already transformed each Beloved I have taught, even as it was transforming me towards my Higher Calling as a Teacher.

For someone like me who likes to be original, I was pleasantly surprised and totally fulfilled with how malleable the frameworks of what we have been given with Intentional Creativity® satisfied my innovative, rebel Creatrix. Being able to relax into the content as I grew in my confidence and awareness of what Intentional Creativity® is for me was priceless! I want to celebrate how in alignment with my Self I now feel as an Artist. This is a direct result of my choosing to participate in the Color of Woman Training and allowing myself to sweetly surrender into the genius of Intentional Creativity®.

"I graduated in 2014 and totally reinvigorated my self-expression and creativity, released deep grief, made very special connections and lifelong friendships, learned to live a bigger creative and intentional life, discovered my voice and a method to bundle with other healing arts modalities for teaching and supporting the betterment of humankind (yes, it’s that powerful)!"
