Your Inner Wisdom
with your Sacred Yes
Your True Colors Unapologetically
“My time with Ally has been critical life support for me. Ally has awakened color and beauty in my life. When I began “diving deep” with art, I trusted Ally’s leadership and her invitation to LOVE myself and listen to my own voice. She helped me “hear” and “see” in new ways. Ally guided me to linger and be led by feminine wisdom.”

Monthly Virtual Gathering
to Uplift Feminine Wisdom
Each month, come, connect and grow with other women who love to dive deep into the spirited thread of their stories. We’ll gather to soulfully inquire around a theme. Journaling and lighthearted drawing prompts will guide us to shine a light on our inner wisdom. Then, we’ll witness one another in love as each woman weaves her truth into this receptive tapestry of voices. Connect in supportive, loving community that encourages depth and soulful exploration.
Monthly Virtual Studio Time
to Create & Ruminate
Come monthly to “BE” the Creation Studio, a virtual time to show up as you are, bring your creative supplies and create aside other amazing women who are on this journey with you. We’ll share what we are working on and then move into quiet reflection as we make in the midst of supportive community. Bring your questions to learn tips and techniques!
Sustainable, Soulful Discovery
at the Intersection of Creativity & Divine Love
Be inspired as you enter into a time of refreshment to playfully navigate the dynamic terrain of your story.
I’ll send you weekly creative prompts where I gently guide you to paint (watercolor), draw & write! These prompts weave and layer over the season to form a completed piece of artwork, such as a storybook, set of altar cards, or frameable image. Make room for sustainable, sacred solitude to create in relationship with Divine Love. Tune in and unearth your personal wisdom. Then, come share your art and words in our private, online community space. No art experience is necessary. Only a willing sense of adventure!
>> This sacred, creative journey guides you to re-member yourself as an expansive sanctuary that holds a world of prayer and blessing. Along this colorful path, you'll bridge relationship with yourself as both human and Divine, discover the jewels of your interior world that desire to shine bright and nurture a heartfelt, creative connection with your environment. If you’ve experienced “sanctuary” as an exterior place to “attend,” this will be a healing experience to embrace the sacred vessel of YOU.
>> During this season, you’ll receive weekly prompts to create a color-filled Sanctuary Soul Book that holds handwritten blessings, prayers and ritual cards with the magic of color and word. Enter into a time to slow down and be present to the Sanctuary of YOU. Materials suggested are a sketchbook; sheet of watercolor paper; black, permanent marker and watercolors!

Hello colorful soul!
I’m a soulful woman on a quest to spark feminine intuition,
sacred imagination and creative possibility.
Two of the deepest beliefs I hold are:
You and I are SACRED.
CREATIVITY is our birthright.
My deep desire for you is that you honor yourself as sacred,
AND that you have access to your creative power
so you make choices from your inner wisdom.
I care deeply that you take time for creative nourishment
so you may access your intuition and live intimately connected
to YOUR colorful ideas and authentic vision in relationship with Divine Love.
You see, there was a time when I didn’t have a moment to “make”.
Creative space felt like a bountiful garden that I wouldn’t allow myself to be in.
I lost my way from my creative spark and shut the door to my inner artist.
I’m also a recovering perfectionist who has danced with frustration
at not getting the perfect, creative outcome.
This all changed when I started to engage creativity
as sacred relationship between Divine Love and myself.
Today, I have a sustainable, creative practice that opens me to inner feminine wisdom and soulful ideas. This practice changes daily and flows organically. The creative life isn’t static!
Showing up for myself through ritual and art making has been a slow, tender practice of self-compassion as well as a transformative shift to the actions I take in my life.
As I create, possibility and healing arises through image and word; transformative —
vibrant action follows.
I’d love to gently guide you to tend YOUR sacred story with
the magic of color and words.
“Creating with Ally opened a path I never thought I’d walk again. I’m returning to women’s ministry (in a broader sense than the church). Ally is a wonderful teacher, moving at a pace that is just right. I appreciate Ally’s open spirit and the way she holds space during our time together as she honors each person’s story and contribution. Providing us with an opening and closing ritual is food for the soul. I’m thankful for Ally’s ministry and where it’s led me. ”

• In my 30’s, I stepped onto the sacred path to learn the ins and outs of faith.
I became immersed in reading, small groups, and devotional books. I was on a search
to gain the proper “knowledge.”
• In 2014, I engaged coursework in Spiritual Formation that opened me up to
contemplative practices including: silence as prayer, Lectio Divina, deep listening and
body movement. “Knowing” unraveled as I found myself swimming in the mystery.
I began a blog to share my journey.
• In 2017, I started to question the lack of creativity and mother Wisdom in faith
institutions and took a break from volunteer work (in the church). Before long, I found artist, Shiloh Sophia, and her community of Musea. In 2018, I completed the Color of Woman program to become an Intentional Creativity® Educator.
• In 2019, I opened Soul Kindling, my creative business to guide retreats,
workshops and share soulful, creative resources with women at the intersection of
sacred love and creative power.
Now, I walk side-by-side women to guide them to re-member their deep, inner Wisdom.
I’ve seen women transform their lives! Women who work with me:
Make room for more REST and renewal
RE-MEMBER themselves as creative as they write, draw and color their story.
Gain access to what MATTERS to them and then
VOICE for their ideas and values to those in their inner circles and communities.
Choose to leave jobs that drain in order to work in spaces that ALIGN with their hearts and value their gifts.
Bring healing to patriarchal wounding and CONNECT with the sacred feminine.
Want sustainable creative practice that empowers your inner Wisdom in a community of support?
INSPIRATION, NOT OVERWHELM
You’ll have access to weekly creative prompts that take 30-60 minutes
so you can see the power of weaving intentional creativity into your life
INTEGRATION OF REST
Intentional times of pause will be woven through each season to honor your body, mind and spirit.
SOUL DEEP COMMUNITY
Enter into a gathering with women who are open to the deep soul dive for their lives
During each season, we go on an art and writing journey. Each week, you’ll receive creative prompts that magically weave together to create a vibrant completed piece of art over the entirety of the season. During Season of Presence, we create a Sanctuary Soul Book.
Each season is ten to twelve weeks long. During the season, there are some lighter weeks to intentionally practice the art of rest. We’ll take a break of 3 weeks in between seasons.
I recommend a set of fine line black permanent markers, a pencil, watercolor paints, a large sheet (22”x28”) of watercolor paper and a mixed media sketchbook for the seasonal journey.
Come and BE you! The creative weekly prompts are there for your inspiration. They DO weave together to create a completed project. However, if you’d rather work with them in a sketchbook or on a canvas, you have freedom to interpret the prompts in the way that feel good to you. During “BE the Creation Studio” time, you are welcome to bring any creative project you’d like to work on in community.
Annual Plan — Pay for all four seasons at once and receive one season complimentary!
Seasonal Payment Plan — Receive a discount when you pay for the full season at once. Pick and choose the seasons that work for you and your schedule.
Monthly Payment Plan: Four Payments for the Season — Pay for the season in smaller increments. Four payments are required to maintain permanent access to the season in your creative library.
Join along for a season, several seasons or years to come! You have a seven day grace period (from the onset of the season) to cancel once you’ve joined.
The weekly creative prompts are designed to take you thirty to sixty minutes total during the week.
Weekly prompts may include journaling inquiries, guided videos for drawing/painting, guided audio meditations or spiritual practice — such as taking a walk in nature and listening for the Divine.
Currently, Illuminate Circle will happen one Tuesday per month and switch back and forth between an afternoon and evening (Eastern Time Zone) call. “BE” the Creation Studio will occur one Friday per month at 8am (PT) / 11am (ET). If you can’t make the circle, Illuminate Circle will be recorded and made available to you to watch during a time that’s convenient for you. “BE” the Creation Studio will have the warm up practice recorded and made available. Another way to connect and share your art with the community is by posting in the private Colorful Me community once you’re registered.
