MUSEA University
Intentional Creativity® Certification Trainings

MUSEA University has six Certifications; Intentional Creativity Guide, Teacher, Coach, Practitioner, Entrepreneur, and Guardian. They do not need to be taken in order, they complement one another and focus on different aspects and materials. These courses are ideal for helping healing professionals who want to add Intentional Creativity to work with their clients and groups/circles. While someone just starting out working with others can benefit, we love for our students to practice in real-time with both virtual and when possible, in-person experiences. We offer a 'badge' that indicates you are 'in training'.

All of our certification trainings apply to any healing and teaching professionals e.g., doctors, shamans, nurses, artists, coaches, therapists, counselors, school teachers, bodyworkers, energy workers (Reiki), priestesses, reverends, and counselors. AND the best perk of all - you will become a part of an intentional community you can travel with for the rest of your life, growing, and collaborating together as we move into our own future and the uncertain future of this planet.

You do not have to be an experienced painter, most of our students are not. Many who were professional college-trained artists say they learned more about painting from Shiloh Sophia (a rogue artist) than they did in school! WHA???

Each MUSEA Intentional Creativity Certification Training includes a prerequisite course that must be completed 30 days before the training starts. This allows you to experience some of the methodology and teaching styles you will receive during the training.

To learn more about our MUSEA global art movement please visit us at MUSEA.org

The differences between each training in a nutshell:

Red Thread Training is a 3-month training focused on a deeper study of The Way of the Red Thread, a book/manual created by Shiloh Sophia, about curating a culture of connection designed to empower women to become leaders and circle facilitators. The Intentional Creativity Method includes watercolor paper and acrylic paint and you also do a personal painting that will represent your circles and your beloveds.

Color of Woman is a 9-month training focused on awakened consciousness through self-expression. Create an epic portfolio of 6 archetypal paintings that embody WHO YOU ARE and what you are here to cause and create. You will learn the 13-step Intentional Creativity Painting Method as taught by Shiloh Sophia which you can then go on to teach others through your own painting courses, retreats, workshops, and more! You also learn some teachings on Red Thread Circle and a simpler Intentional Creativity process you can do in a day.

FRAMEWORKS (formerly Motherboard) is a 9-month training focused on visual technology, a revolutionary approach to the coaching process that is accessible to all professionals in search of high-impact visual methods to meet their client's needs in an entirely new way. The intentional Creativity process includes metacognitive drawing with paper and pens. You also do a personal painting to document your training experience called VOYAGER.

Prisma is a 12-month training focused on the practice of the Intentional Arts along with Science and Somatics. This is ideal for those who already have a client base or plan to within the first three months of the training. The intentional Creativity process includes journaling with watercolor, paper, and pen. You also do a yearlong personal painting to experience the 42 Teachings of Intentional Creativity called ANTHROPAS.

GLOW is a 6-week training focused on magnifying your business by harnessing your self-expression to bring your sacred work from internal musing to an external Genius Love Offering for the World. You will learn how to artistically access your unique gifts, create a $100k+ Business Plan, define an irresistible offer, and design an invitation page (a sales page) using Shiloh Sophia's signature Nine Elements of Circumstance Template. This course helps you to become familiar with what types of technology are needed and why. In only 6 weeks you will have enough information to launch your Genius Love Offering for the World.

ORIGINS is a 6-month program focused on becoming a conscious co-creator and guardian of your identity. Students will learn to guide themselves and others in experiencing the full aliveness of being human - a multifaceted miracle. This training will provide clear maps of how we are designed so that you can gain access to your most authentic essence of self, voice, and life. It invites a path of aliveness in our relationship with all of life and our responsibility for self-actualization, self-leadership, and village/community leadership.

Intentional Creativity Entrepreneur Certification Graphic

Intentional Creativity® Entrepreneur Training is a 6-week course focused on magnifying business visions, plans, and offerings with a heart-centered and creative approach. The Core Curriculum components are designed to offer a method of approach to develop new business offerings.

GLOW Training Start & Finish Date: To be determined for 2024.

Painting Process/Practice:

GLOW's painting practice uses the Intentional Creativity approach of connecting to your heart center and creative mind.

In intentional Creativity, the experience for the painting process is both a visioning – accessing your minds-eye to craft an offering and composting - working with the felt energy to deconstruct/decompose the richness of what wants to be sensed organically about the offering.

The painting process is for students, as a method for accessing and harnessing the details of your project offering. It is not learning how to paint or how to teach painting in your offer. Rather, you will learn a simple Intentional Creativity process using canvas and acrylic paint as an exploration of your offering that you can use in your marketing materials.

Our Guild has worked collaboratively to bring Intentional Creativity® to workshops, classes, retreats, cruise ships, and luxury destinations, as well as teaching online. We are all about women creating their own content and bringing their work into the world.

Due to the growth of our global MUSEA membership Guild community, In 2021 we created region-based groups called Regional Guild Constellations. These groups provide our graduates another layer of opportunity for connection, collaboration, structure, and support for localized Intentional Creativity® offerings and events.

Each Constellation has co-guides who work with members to create a container that serves that regional group best. Within these containers, our Constellations are providing training, mentorship, brainstorming, and collaboration. We consider our Constellations clusters of shining stars that revolve around a center-point (The Greater Guild) and, together tell a story all their own.

Note: Constellation membership is for active Guild members.

Each Intentional Creativity Certification Training has a required $250 certification fee due at the end of the course, which covers the following:

  • Intentional Creativity Guide, Teacher, Coach or Practitioner Certificate
  • Branded Certification Badge/Logo for use on your websites, business cards, email signatures, business materials, etc.
  • Personal Profile added to our Intentional Creativity Educator Directory. 
  • Invitation to join the MUSEA Guild Membership - a circle for our graduate community and co-curators.

Color of Woman 2018 Graduation and Guild Gathering, Maui Hawaii

"Kind friends all gathered 'round, there's something I would say: That what brings us together here has blessed us all today. Love has made a circle that holds us all inside. Where strangers are as family, loneliness can't hide. You must give yourself to love if love is what you're after; Open up your hearts to the tears and laughter and give yourself to love, give yourself to love."
~ Kate Wolf

The Future of MUSEA University Keeps Getting Better and Brighter! 

We have well over 500 people already certified to offer Intentional Creativity as a tool of transformation, consciousness curation, healing trauma, and guiding circles of connection both virtual and in-person globally.

Our next step is to innovate education on what we feel is the most relevant and most needed to steward the future together as conscious humans who tend to one another, the earth, all beings, and cultures of love. We are inviting women to a new and ancient culture, calling, and profession, a Curate. To become a Curate is to answer the Call to Cause and Create that which you long for in this lifetime.

What is a Curate? A Curate is a new archetypal pathway for women combining the gifts of being philosophers, storytellers, healers, medicine painters, chaplains, and curators of art, culture, ecology, and history. A Curate is an archaic idea coming from ancient 14th-century Latin meaning to cure, to care, to be a spiritual guide, to provide pastoral care, and the one responsible for the care of souls in their village or area of practice. As well as the second meaning, is to be in charge of a museum, exhibit, or gallery. You could almost think of this role as a Priestess, Sage, Guide, or Creative Midwife carrying Intentional Creativity as one of their primary tools. As a collective body, part of our shared project is to elevate women's voices and images through museum craft.

We are creating a new linguistic archetypal potential with the initiation of the word, Curate. If you pause and tune into this potential - you can likely feel what we are moving towards. To become the medicine we are seeking, and those around us are looking for. Further, many of us who do not have innate gifts of healing or intuition, or clairvoyance still seek to offer ourselves to the service of the community in a more formalized art-based offering. We bring a medicine basket full of modalities from our community.

Intentional Creativity prepares a soul to co-curate the often hidden identity of a person into a lived experience. Most women who truly study and practice Intentional Creativity goes through a complete shift in their experience of themselves, their gifts, their capacity to act, sacred activism, their relationship with the earth and their family, and their consciousness. This is a path to wake up, wake others, and call them into Red Thread Circle.

We all know how much women of wisdom are in need worldwide and in our systems, villages, and homes in this era. We all know how many call themselves healers or shamans yet may benefit from initiation, practice, boundaries, practicum, entrepreneurship, and time in the community to be raised up in the context of care and consciousness.

Becoming a "Curate" isn't something people are 'hiring' for in a classic sense. Yet it may be the deepest need we have as a species and a planet right now. Awake women who know what to do in times of crisis, times of deep practice, and times of celebration. A Curate is a modern-day celebrant who is independent of a religious system, yet holds all life as sacred.

We are proceeding with being our own certifying body as we continue to work towards various pathways of accreditation. We will be adjusting year by year. 

Courses may be taken in any order at this time. Our Counseling team can work with you to forge a path if you are just starting. Your previous Intentional Creativity coursework will be applied to your collective units. Applications, requirements, and other facets will come in time. For now, consider yourself a part of this movement! We are one of the largest art movements in the world, and that is because of you.

We know you will have lots of questions as time goes on. And we have answers. Pages and pages of answers and ideas to work with you on - because we will create this TOGETHER. This work is the turning of the soil and inviting you to witness this next brave move for our entire team and community.

Below is an overview of some of our courses of study, subject to change and adjustment.

With love,
