Uncommon times call for uncommon women.
Will you redefine what business means to you?
Watch & Learn about our non-traditional
Muse-Infused approach to Business:
Whether you are just getting started or have been at this a long time, your business deserves a FRESH Creative Business Plan of Action that LIGHTS YOU UP!
Let's work together to REVISION YOUR BUSINESS YOUR WAY. Bring your creativity to the table by working visually with an updated company story, authentic messaging, and approach to your offerings in the future.
At the end of our time, you will have a full-color business plan and ways to communicate your refreshed dream to the world!
"Your business exists because you say so. No one gets to define that for you. The bottom line or how much money you have in the bank is not your business.
Your VISION is your business. Let's Revision Together!"
~ Shiloh Sophia, Founder MUSEA: Intentional Creativity®

The Intentional Creativity® Approach to Business
Designed for Entrepreneurs and Visionaries
Ideal for those getting started or needing
a revisioning for their business!
WHO: Women who have a business with heart, a dance between the worlds of being true to ourselves, as well as honoring the need for sustainability. Dancing between the worlds is what many of us learn to do, drawing both from our intuitive mystical nature, as well as our analytical, structure-based, and orderly nature. Can we bring these elements together? Of course, we can - let's do it!
WHAT: We will weave within the traditional and feminine framework of a business plan to create a vision aligned with your values. Each of our guests will create a full-color 8-page Visionary Business Plan. Even if you have made one before, this one is fresh and to the point where you are in your business now.
WHEN & WHERE: April 1.2.3, 2023. Saturday - Monday. At MUSEA: Center for Intentional Creativity in Sonoma, California.
LODGING: Stay with us! If you need lodging, we have dormitory rooms at MUSEA for $100 per night. 10 rooms are available on a first-come basis.
WHAT'S INCLUDED: Painting materials (please bring your own brushes if possible), spending a full weekend with Shiloh Sophia learning about her approach to business that has led to a global movement of her brand, navigating the ups and downs over the last 30 years, running a 7-figure business and serving thousands world-wide through revolutionary education. Her experience and story will help inform your own business and visions for what's really possible when you expand your framework.
WHY: As an entrepreneur, being equipped with the power tools to navigate the next decade is essential. You don't want to do business by others' standards, you want to do it your way. These days we need to be informed about the global context as well as learn to become savvy in the virtual marketplace.
HOW: Whether you are just starting out in your business or have been at this for a long time, revisioning your approach and strategies through play and pleasure will be fun, insightful, and powerful. You have never seen a business plan quite like this one, we can guarantee it! Our approach takes the aspects of making business personal and professional to the next level. Plus we will be giving you a tool to use over and over for your business.
Our Intentional Creativity® experience offers so many benefits!
No matter what business you are in, your plan is your guiding light. AND HOW you approach your plan, with what kind of MIND and HEART informs every single decision.
Watch & listen to Shiloh's plan of action!
You can create a fresh business plan for ANY BUSINESS IDEA you can think of! This is how we do business differently. Do you see a spreadsheet or notepad with defined lines? Nope. When it comes to visioning we merry-meet the left and right brain. Color and Inquiry with Strategy and Inspired Action.
Shiloh Sophia has taught this process to hundreds of women both online and in person, as well as part of the curriculum for her Certification Trainings.
Note: This offer is for enrollment in the Sonoma GOLD MIND Course. If you are not local or unable to travel, consider registering for the GOLD MIND Virtual Self-Paced course.
Our centrally located venue has beauty curated inside and out, with multimedia art from our permanent collections visible throughout, flower and vegetable gardens, vineyards, redwood trees, and spaces for experiencing art and ceremony in community.
Take a virtual tour of MUSEA Sonoma, to get a sense of the ambiance, beauty, and creativity awaiting your arrival!
We are so excited to invite you to our ‘glamping’ Mermaid dorm at Musea. You can think of this as artist-in-residence slumber party style! The first 10 women who register will be offered a room for only $100 per night!
If slumber parties are not your thing, we can provide an alternate list of lodging options in the area.

Wondering if you need a business to take this class? The answer is no. This course is intended for women who are currently in business or thinking of starting one. No matter what level of entrepreneurship you are in, this course will give you the clarity to take actionable steps forward.
I am always amazed at how deep those processes go whilst being manageable and this time even playful! I have more clarity now, and it was wonderful to experience the support in the group. Yes, the sharing, the connecting with each other, is such an important part of this!
Thank you, Shiloh Sophia [Curator] ❤️ Always a pleasure, and it's getting better and better! 🙏 Nah, YOU are getting better and better, peeling away everything that might not be you, and gifting the world with so much brilliant authenticity - witnessing this is so inspiring! 🌈🌟
~ Johanna 2022 GOLD MIND Student
Gold Mind has been a beautiful journey for me. It gifted me with language for my services which have been evolving in recent months. Through meditation, visioning, and creative activities, I received much information about my gifts, story, and journey, and new offerings fell into place. This course dissolved the overwhelm I was feeling regarding my chosen project (called The Gift of Your Authentic Voice) and gave me a process that I can repeat in the future to move through stuckness. I now lead with a strong sense of the sacredness of my work and life. Thank You for providing such a magnificent experience!
~ Swati Kameswar 2023 GOLD MIND Student
~ Emily McCollum 2022 GOLD MIND Student
I found Gold Mind to be an interesting and valuable journey. The thoughtful processes helped me to explore and solidify my vision and my why in a meaningful and action-oriented way.
~ Jenn Bissette 2022 GOLD MIND Student
The Gold Mind experience was very helpful and inspiring for me. I could understand how business works and what I need to do to launch my own business. The most important thing was I can do it my way and I loved the approach that you dear Shiloh Sophia presented to me/us through the Intentional Creativity Method and big love. THANK YOU AGAIN.
~ Saskia Bartscht 2022 GOLD MIND Student
I found not only the integration of traditional business concepts with intentional creativity powerful but bridging the two via reframing and renaming opened a whole new vista to explore. And that engages me in a new way.
~ Suzanne Schevene 2023 GOLD MIND Student
Co-Creative, expanding experience. Courageously, inspiring journey. 💓
~ Sherri Keikilani 2022 GOLD MIND Student
Thank you, Shiloh Sophia [Curator] 💛 for offering this illuminating, sacred container to birth our projects 🧶🙏🏼🧶
Being in the heart-centered consciousness of my gold mind has become a daily ritual for me. Day to day, I notice my gold mind growing, lighting up my life, and providing nourishment for my developing healing arts academy.
Thanks to Gold Mind, I’ve been building my business from the inside out. My business plan is strengthening as I find myself daydreaming, visualizing the interior landscapes of the rooms I will occupy with my beloveds, as well as, imagining my beloveds’ beaming hearts and faces, feeling their loving, joyous energies. This practice of dwelling in my gold mind has become a coping skill for staying disciplined and creating a structure with action steps. And, using my gold mind imagination gives me encouragement and fuel to stay shining and moving when I need a boost and a self-pep talk. Gold Mind reminds me that what I seek is seeking me 🧶🙏🏼🧶🙏🏼🧶
Brightest blessings to All 💖
Yes, this is my painting 🎨
~ Anna Louise Throm 2022 GOLD MIND Student
The teachings of Gold Mind resonate so much with me – it just feels right in body, mind and soul. It also felt so good to discover my own Gold Mind and explore it. Shiloh, your approach is a gift and it reconnects me with my own ways and rhythms. Thank you so much!
~ Nina Rubea Jäger 2022 GOLD MIND Student
The framework below is used to shift how we look at our business using a heart-centered approach.
As you look at each framework, there is a structure. At the top is a single WORD. This is the framework and the inquiry to ask yourself. Who are you? Who do you serve? What are you offering? etc. As you go through each area/inquiry, you engage with the right brain first for your thinking, allowing yourself to see the whole first, engaging with Flow before form.
The next word, in cursive script, is the new language we are claiming flow. Right underneath is the more business-like WORD in all caps which would normally be used in a traditional Business Plan. This is always a work in progress and has been offered to thousands of people in various forms for the past 18 years by Shiloh Sophia, the founder of Intentional Creativity.
Through play, imagination, dreaming, visioning, and working with symbols and language you will design your own business plan right onto a deck of cards. The idea is that the deck becomes a 'practice' and that when you are working on your business you pull a card and work on that area for a minimum of 15 minutes, making it fun and moving through resistance. We wanted to share this with you so that you could get a little spark of interest considering what we are about to do...
These photos were taken when Shiloh Sophia shared this process during a 2019 International Forum of Visual Practitioners.
I was raised in a household of women entrepreneurs, working artists who chose their craft many times over security and safety, but they knew they wanted to devote their life force to something that felt worthwhile to them, to spend the majority of their days doing something they actually love and discovering the pathway of sustainability towards that.
I know it isn't an easy path, having walked it myself and walked it with my family. There have been millions of dollars made and potentially millions of dollars lost in the journey. But what has been created by women entrepreneurs, including myself, is so much more than what we think of as the currency of money. There's so much more to the story. ~ Shiloh Sophia

While currency, in the form of money, is important to sustain you, your family and your work, the currency of Source is equally important.
When you are connected to Source, your true passion, you naturally raise the vibration of what you have to offer, often resulting in earning more money with less effort.
Shiloh Sophia will teach you specific heartset and mindset development techniques so the projects you are creating in the world are infused with life-force that flows directly from the currency of source.
It matters that women who care and are concerned for the future of the world are able to get their work brought out and expressed, and expressed in and of themselves, regardless of what ends up happening in the marketplace or through recognition.
We know currency ebbs and flows. The marketplace goes up and down. What matters is that you are clear on what your gifts are and that you continue showing up to bring them forward in ways that feel good and juicy to you!

"This class has been so inspirational for me. I have been able to totally embrace a new way of imaging my business. I keep checking in with the various information centers within my body and holding little mini-conferences with them, i.e., "heart, so what do you think about what gut is suggesting?" I keep taking bigger and bigger steps towards a business model that is way out there for me. I'm not quite ready to share or even language it yet but it is indeed emerging in a most wondrous way. Thank you all for your love, support and just being my community right now. I know I wouldn't even be thinking these thoughts if it wasn't for this class/group, never mind actually considering taking action on them!" ~ Yarrow Summers
"Shiloh Sophia is a visionary for the divine feminine way in business igniting the potential in others to rise up and take their rightful place at the plentiful table of the Goddess. As an innovator, imaginator, and creatrix, she dares to color outside the lines of possibilities with big broad strokes in order to transcend mainstream thinking. An invigorating breath of fresh air in business! Thank Goddess!" ~ Diane Merpaw
"Got so much clarity on a BIG long-term project, with things to drip in before. Can’t wait to complete my plan and do a live video for my beloveds. And share ideas with my publisher. The Muse is a happy mermaid after some weeks on hiatus." ~ DT
"Refocused. Reenergized. Rewarded. Remembering. Recognizing. Remarkable!" ~ NM
"Very insightful and many inspiring thoughts and action steps I need to take. I am not good with "deadlines" but I am going to challenge myself to 90 days to start getting my stuff out there. I will use this method for many projects to come." ~ LK
"If you want to create a heart-centered business, access information you don’t have access to at the moment that has the potential to unlock new levels of potential for your business, change your perspective on finances and how to bring it in, Shiloh’s coaching, guidance, intuition, and creativity are a powerhouse! You can’t unknow what is revealed to you during the coaching sessions… so be ready for intense movement forward with your business if you say YES! " ~ Evelyne Verret
Oh my gosh, I will, I am slowly going through everything, and will absolutely share soon!!!

More About the Business Plan
Watch this short sneak peek of the business plan process.
CONTEXT: We are creating our own revolution in language, energy, and action. Most business language is constructed in reference to sports and war. We are reclaiming that language to reflect the ideas, ideals, and energy of the heart-based entrepreneur.
CONCEPT: The concept is to IDENTIFY the essential elements of a business plan since most of us don't think about it or see it as a whole. Then we inquire, 'thinking,' 'seeing,' and 'feeling' each area with new eyes, and expand awareness of the values and features of each category. This way you can inform your business with the greatest heart and consciousness you have!
AWAKENING: Become conscious of each area of your business and the new language you are bringing to each area. Looking at the inquiry at the top, then the flow and form in language.
AFFIRMATION: Once you review each area, you will go back through it a second time and create an affirmation, an 'I AM' statement of some kind that affirms your stand for that part of your business (and write it in your book). For example - WHO: the Beloved/Client I am calling in...
ACTIONS: Once you create the affirmation you can go back through again and add actions or more details for that area as inspired by looking at the Informing Drivers. At this point, you can add more writing in the book or bring it to the computer. Finally, if you choose, bring the ideas into a traditional business plan.

YOU are the FUTURE by Shiloh Sophia
For my Fellow Entrepreneurs in times of Great Change.
Your business exists,
even if your bottom line has changed.
Your business exists because it is not made of numbers,
codes, indexes, markets, surges, stats and regular math.
Your business is not binary or a spreadsheet,
your business is part of the circle of life itself.
Your business exists because it lives inside of your DREAM,
and your VISION for making a contribution to the planet.
If you feel underwater, and if I know anything about our kind,
you will learn to breathe here. We are learning new things.
Even if you have too much debt,
and can't imagine how it will ever be otherwise.
Even if you don't have any money, right now. And you don't know
when more is coming. Even then. Your business exists.
Even if you can't give your customers or investors
the answers or refunds they want.
You may be magic,
but you aren't required to tell the future.
You are the future.
But that doesn't mean you need to know what it looks like.
Those who want answers now, and become insta' as*holes,
cut em' lose. They didn't get it anyway.
More often than not, those with a corporate headset, customers
or companies, have no idea what entrepreneurs actually do.
Just try to tell them!? And you will see. We speak
a different language here, and our math is sacred.
Our math says that no one will suffer for profit.
Our values say that humans and creation are the true value
Your business exists because you say so.
As long as you say it does. No one can choose for you.
Do not let your reputation define you,
define it for yourself, by claiming a visioning cycle.
You are going to say so, aren't you?
You are made for times like these.
Your business is woven with hope for humanity
and therefore cannot die - evolve, yes - die, no.
Your business exists, if you choose
to put up a 'gone fishin' sign in the physical or virtual window.
Your business reflects your heart-centered values and care
for those you serve, now or in the past or the future.
Dear precious visionaries, we need YOU to exist.
Do not close your doors too soon or admit defeat! Stay!
Keep energy flowing, even gently with your awareness, make
a simple altar with your business card and hold your reality firm.
Being in integrity does not mean telling every single facet
of your business, it means curating the appropriate context.
You are the one who narrates the story of your business.
What part of the story are you in today? You choose.
You are defining a new bottom line that became a circle.
You have never likely been about profit over process or progress.
You continually re-invested in the dream, that's why you
don't have more reserves. There is no shame in giving all you got!
Don't let the accountants tell you your worth. Period.
Your worth is from sources no one but you knows about.
Your business is not just you, it is colleagues, clients, coaches,
Consultants. Your business represents more than your fear.
You don't need to feel ashamed about continuing to charge
for services you can still deliver on. Design a relevant plan
Those who believe in your work, will continue to support you.
They will be patient with the flow of your evolving form.
Your hard won eccentric, diverse, futuristic, edgy, risky, esoteric,
innovative, disruptor ideals are essential to the unfolding!
Listen, you have been financing your own revolution,
almost since you were a kid. Your business is a story, not a brand.
Entrepreneurs are weaving a new fabric right now and we need
your colorful threads as a part of the new design. Don't go!
Your business exists because you say so.
Are you listening? Please! Pause with me, here.
Let your heart speak the truth now,
truth is all we have, as rare as it may be.
Your real business is not something that can be owned.
And you are not your business. You gave birth to it.
Your real business is the invisible, becoming visible.
You make something out of nothing, and you know it!
All of us who have spent our lives creating an alternate
possibility for the marketplace, stand with you. I do.
If you survive this, you will have the wisdom we need!
Don't forget! Dreamer! The fire in your bones remembers!
This old paradigm IS shuttering to a halt - it won't be able to
keep going, it wasn't designed to last. But you were.
You didn't make your business plan with an exit strategy,
you wove your plan with pure love, to exist as love.
Listen changemaker, innovator, rebel with a cause -
something new is happening, and your voice is requested!
There is a seat at the table with your name on it.
If you don't show up, no one else can take your place.
This is a giant permission slip to exist.
Finally, we are in this together, all of us.
You are the future!
" It matters that women who care and are concerned for the future of the world are able to get their work brought out and expressed."
