Welcome! Are you interested in a deeper study with Intentional Creativity? Would you like to bring the practice of Intentional Creativity into your life, family, circles, teachings, and with your clients?
Our certifications are a potent initiatory journey that guides helping/healing professionals to ...
MUSEA School has four Certifications; Intentional Creativity Guide, Teacher, Coach, and Practitioner. They do not need to be taken in order, they complement one another and focus on different aspects and materials. These Trainings 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 that you will receive during the training.

Intentional Creativity® Certification Teacher Training is a 9-month intensive painting designed to be a Quest to the Heart of your Soul Work and Revitalization of Creative Self Expression.

The coursework is rooted in the exploration of personal archetypes that move you through terrains of exploration and hidden worlds to discover your content.

Painting Process/Practice: ANTHROPAS a yearlong Rite of Passage in Paint for soul and body to come together for a creative spiritual voyage.
In your painting you are going to be invited to explore your own soul space. The place your light body and your physical body come together. Your 'sack of stardust' knowings and your way of integrating the two.
Through metacognitive consciousness we will be stepping out of pre-existing pardigmatic default experiences. You will be painting your own SELF as the invisible becomes visible at the end of your brush.
Here are some examples as these are subject to change each year:
This is currently our first training in which MUSEA Co-founders, Shiloh Sophia and Jonathan McCloud will teach together in a big way, focusing on the study of Intentional Healing Arts with Science and Somatics.
Are you ready for a new model and revolution in healing? In our Practitioner Certification Training, we teach you to be in a co-creative relationship with your clients where they can learn to self-regulate, guiding them to access their own transformation rather than expecting you to have all the answers.
We teach you to develop your own experience of direct 'gnosis' through the teachings of clairconsciousness available through alignment of internal and external systems of your identity, energy, and framework. Then you will learn to teach your clients to do the same.
One of the greatest gifts of being part of our Intentional Creativity Trainings and completing your certification is to be invited to continue the connection with fellow graduates from your class year and those who have come before you through the Intentional Creativity® Guild.
Our Guild is over 500 strong with women educated in Intentional Creativity® who have a common vision to serve their communities, school system, hospitals, prisons, mental health and social services, and institutions that need our work. 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:
By the end of 2021, we will 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 go 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.
