Intentional Creativity & Radical Healing:
A Conversation With Shiloh Sophia and Lissa Rankin, MD

"Exploring the link between creativity, healing trauma, and neuroscience is our cup of tea!" —Shiloh Sophia

Is Your "Inner Pilot Light" Hinting That Creative Self-Expression Might Be Just What The Doctor Ordered For Your Healing Journey?

Scientific evidence confirms that creative self-expression improves your health, reduces doctor's visits, boosts your immune system, treats depression, helps to heal trauma, and improves cancer recovery rates. Plus, it's fun! Lissa Rankin, MD, who is a physician, artist, founder of the Whole Health Medicine Institute, star of two National Public Television shows, and author of 7 books, reported the scientific data linking creativity and health in her book Mind Over Medicine and mentioned it in her popular TEDx talks. She created a certification program for physicians, linking consciousness, spirituality, creativity and healing to help doctors and patients facilitate their healing journeys.

Shiloh Sophia approaches healing through the method she developed, Intentional Creativity, which she has taught to thousands of art teachers and facilitators, as well as to thousands of women recovering from trauma, illness, and disconnection from the Divine Feminine. An artist who uses many art mediums to facilitate people on their healing journeys, Shiloh has spent decades studying the healing process and how Intentional Creativity can facilitate healing. Shiloh has presented to the United Nations about her healing work and has written seven books.

Shiloh and Lissa have been playing in the healing sand box together- hearts, healing hands, and paintbrushes co-mingled- on and off for many years. It delights them to alchemize the intersections of their work into medicine intended to serve those who can benefit from their co-creative service work.

For those of you on a healing journey, Lissa and Shiloh created a free ______ min (90 min?) teleclass to explore this link between healing, art, and how to relax your inner critic and perfectionist parts so the muse can reveal to you what is needed to pave the way to physical, emotional, and spiritual liberation.

In this call, Lissa & Shiloh muse about:

  • A meditation to connect you with your muse
  • How your Inner Pilot Light flows through as the creative muse
  • How Intentional Creativity might be part of writing your own Prescription on your healing journey
  • Energy healing & art
  • Why we take issue with the law of attraction
  • A healing exercise Shiloh offered to me (and you) if you're wrestling with a health issue

Lissa Rankin, MD, New York Times bestselling author of The Daily Flame, Mind Over Medicine, The Fear Cure, and The Anatomy of a Calling is a physician, speaker, founder of the Whole Health Medicine Institute, creator of The Daily Flame, and mystic. Passionate about what makes people optimally healthy and what predisposes them to illness, she discovered that connecting with your “Inner Pilot Light” is not only essential to optimal health, making your body ripe for miracles. It’s also the golden ticket to finding and fulfilling your calling, nurturing healthy relationships, being a loving, responsible, ethical Soul Tribe member, downloading creative new ideas from the muse, and restoring peace on earth. Bridging between seemingly disparate worlds, Lissa is a connector, collaborator, curator, and amplifier, broadcasting not only her unique visionary ideas, but also those of cutting edge visionaries she discerns and trusts, especially in the field of her latest research into “Sacred Medicine.”  In 2012, Lissa founded the Whole Health Medicine Institute, where she and a team of luminary faculty like Deepak Chopra, Rachel Naomi Remen, Bernie Siegel, and Joan Borysenko train physicians and other health care providers about “Whole Health” and the “6 Steps to Healing Yourself.” Lissa has starred in two National Public Television specials, her TEDx talks have been viewed over 4 million times, and she leads workshops, both online and at retreat centers like Esalen, 1440, Omega, and Kripalu.


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 the University 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.”

She is the creator of seven books, as well as a community leader. Having been trained by her mother Caron McCloud the poet, and Sue Hoya Sellars the artist, she brought her gifts of language and image into form through founding the Intentional Creativity® Guild, Cosmic Cowgirls®, Power Creatives TV and Color of Woman®. She lives and works at Cosmic Cowgirls Ranch in Sonoma California which provides education both in-house and online, reaching over 25k subscribers a month. She can be found most days having tea with her muses discussing quantum physics and celebrating revelations of the heart.
