Fellow Rebels await your good company...

I am Shiloh Sophia. I am an edge-walker, so in the photo above I am wearing a ship on my head with gladiolas coming out. When I walk down the street of San Francisco, New York, or Paris they don't even notice me. I am almost invisible. But since you are reading this very page it means something caught your eye. Perhaps my coy smile or my leopard print boots? My giant paintbrushes? Well, whatever it is you are here now. And if you ever wanted to have access to your own inner world in a wacky wonder-filled way, you came to the right place. Hang out with me. You will find plenty of fellow rebels here amongst the many muses of Musea.

Ready to paint your Muse? Shaking in your boots a little (or a lot) is totally normal.

"Hey what are your plans this week?

"Oh nothing much, just painting my Muse while jamming out to my favorite music and nibbling on chocolate.

"Wait, what? How do you paint your Muse?"

"Well, it is this super cool way of giving an identity to your wild self within where you ask questions and find answers instead of seeking outside yourself for the answers from everyone else."

"Cool. I wanna come! Show me?"

"Well come on then and let's begin by having tea with the muse, she is a wild card that one!"

The Intentional Creativity® Approach

Intentional Creativity means to create with love and mindfulness. It is super-duper simple and super-duper profound. We will work step by step to build our base of images. YET the deepest part is the inquiry of HOW you arrive at the images with your information and the translations. That part is top-secret and you have to join the WILD CARD event to gain access to that material. Just ask your Muse, she knows how it goes.

You don't need painting experience to do this kind of painting.

The more wild and free, the better!


Muses speak in Myth and Glyph in the land where the wild things are…. Within each one of us, a hidden self awaits awakening. That hidden self speaks in symbols both personal and collective. Most of us don’t know how to get in, past the voices that hold us back. Access is granted through creativity embodied. That which we call the Muse is really access to the hidden self. She is waiting to speak to you…

See what our students say about working with
Shiloh Sophia and Intentional Creativity

"During this process, I was having a particularly hard time with the state of our world. Feeling sad and helpless I approached this process. I surrendered to my feelings and let the brush take the lead. What I learned from her is that not all feelings need to be transmuted. Sometimes they just need a place to be and to be recognized for what it is. I feel so much tenderness towards her and see beauty even in her sadness. I found solace in having her look back at me just the way I feel and there’s great medicine in that." - Maasa Craig

Painting: Let It Be

by Milagros Suriano-Rivera

"Painting is self-therapy, rewriting my story, healing old wounds, discovering inner archetypes, keeping my sanity during these wild times, opening up to divine guidance, listening to my soul’s whispers, bathing in silence and colors, active self-love, getting into flow and more."

Sylvia Becker-Hill

"Each encounter with Shiloh Sophia is an infusion of courage that brings me one step further along the road to authentically “knowing” who I am and being willing to share that with others….."

Elizabeth Gibbons

"I was once very creative and never thought those divine doors would open for me again, then along came Shiloh Sophia, she is showing me the way back to the path as it unfolds day by day. I feel so blessed to have found her. Working with her is joyful and powerful on many levels. "

Maria Graham


"Thank you so much for “decoding” how to draw a face. I was just thinking about how incompetent I felt in elementary school, not being able to draw a recognizable form. And now, I can actually create a Portal and allow the Goddess, Priestess, and Muse to come through. That is life-transforming, paradigm-shifting, world-changing!"  ~ Anonymous

As a student of International Creativity, I am continually amazed at what comes forward when I create with my Muse. What a joy it was to watch Shiloh teaching and sharing her gifts with an intimate group while streaming around the globe. As I lean into my own practice I appreciate seeing the simplicity of teaching with how impactful creating with your intention can be. As I have just returned from my own in-person experience attending both Musette and Musea, I could feel the care and attention Shiloh, Jonathan & Stella Mac put towards insuring their beloveds felt special. The scents of the rose petals when entering the space, the sounds of soft music playing in the background & the attentiveness to all the beautiful details intended to create a unique and special ambiance for those attending. Along with their approachability and attentiveness to the attendees is warm and heartfelt, taking time to connect with their guests. It was truly a serine experience to be surrounded by such genuine love. ♥️🥰🧶🎶🌹 ~ Kelly House & her creative works from Muse Day May 3rd, 2022.

Below is the progress Musedays Riddle - I’m a COLOR OF WOMAN grad from 2019 I really needed a reboot for my own personal mindset & signed up for the 1st Muse day - after returning from a trip to RI to begin to renovate an old family home. We got back & off the plane to find my car had been in a wreck - the friend who had been house sitting was hit on her way to the airport! She was fine but the guy was a nut and ran off- no insurance! It is surprising how much IC painting can actually help you to sort out feelings and redirect your mindset even under the oddest circumstances. So I invited my Muse after the recent sun/moon eclipse to find some beautiful answers and help me decide what to do next? Is there a message there? My insight symbol moved from the cosmos to the infinity sign and ended in a pool with ripples - moving out -‘all events affect others’…When my Muse appeared she ended up with that magenta blurred heart shape at her throat, reminding me to ‘Speak from the Heart’ so that is her name. She wears a broken crescent-shaped necklace that seems to be reflecting back to that new moon event. I’ll work on her more before we are done talking… ~ Rose Shaw & her creative works from Muse Day May 3rd, 2022.

This was my first muse day experience.  The process really helped me to open up to the creative flow.  I had felt stuck and uninspired for a while. I couldn't believe some of the colors my muse inspired me to use.  They were lighter and happier energy.  I was surprised as my muse was revealed.  Since this experience, I have had more energy and enthusiasm.  I am eager to interact with my muse and continue this creative renewal process. Thank you, Shiloh, for this wonderful opportunity. I'm looking forward to our next two sessions. 
~ Deborah Jackson - Muse of Riddles May 3rd, 2022

MuseDays was a wonderful opportunity to connect with the inner voices we all have in our heads, to take them back and create shifts in thinking, opening pathways to possibilities. I love the concept of starting in the abstract and seeing what happens and I always come away with increased access to my own insight. 
~ Pamela Llano - Muse of Riddles May 3rd, 2022

I enjoy taking classes online because it allows me to move at my own pace, I can get up to attend a personal needs without anyone taking notice and if I move faster than others, I have a chance to refine my piece.

Painting this piece was particularly enjoyable although my colors were much brighter and more saturated than Shiloh's and that worried me at first it gave me the opportunity to work with what I had. For example, I wasn't able to erase the first face line and made instead I transform that into a facial decoration from there the piece began to talk to me the muse said it wanted elf ears, so I gave them to it. I'm still not sure if this is a male or female it will not give me its pronouns. Additionally, the muse asked for magenta eyes accented with gold eye shadow and dots lots of dots.

Doing this class really dovetailed with the work I'm doing in TEMPLE as well as the work I just did in APOTHECARY it feels good to complete a piece (for the most part) in the course of a class. To do that I had to let go which is very hard for me. I'm signed up for two additional MUSE classes and can't wait to hear what my new companions have to say.

Shiloh's Muse of Stories was a colorful way for me to play with paint and symbols and to explore my long-held beliefs about my identity and self-image. It was fun and relaxing and yet at the same time exciting to feel the flow state as I painted the delicate watercolors on my page. But it wasn't just about fun; this was a class about noticing the old stories we have held onto so tightly and how they continue to hold us back. There was no deep-diving into old traumas, just gently noticing what could be released and then inviting the release. And what new healing or change of story was asking for a chance to emerge? We invited a symbol of the new story onto the page. Intentional Creativity is such a magical healing process for me. Through the movement of the brush on the paper and applying color and marks with an inquiry gently held in mind, I find myself in a meditative state that I have a hard time reaching in traditional meditative practices. I can really get to know myself, uncover my limiting beliefs, and transform them by creating a new story -- a story that unfolds within the painting, a story that I can move into and see with my own eyes. When I view my work, I see the colorful Muse that I created and the messages I received through the painting and journaling process.  The images help me remember my new intention. My image from today's class was a chrysalis and a butterfly, my Butterfly Muse of Transformation and Healing that represents my hope for a positive recovery from a recent injury and subsequent surgery. Thank you, Shiloh, for a great class!

“Tea-Time Muse” by Renate Roske-Shelton; 24x18 inches on Mixed Media Paper.

What a great relaxing day with Shiloh sharing her teachings in her Muse Day class. Prompted by this inclusive event I indulged in my acrylic paints on black paper. With actual and imagined support from the connection with the Red Circle that Sofia held I created spontaneous underpainting that I liked a lot because of its bright colors and happy-go-lucky-feeling. In the afternoon and subsequent sessions, I first resisted a human figure but then came up with a kneeling figure. (Fig. 2) Reacting purely to my own impulses again. The kneeling lady needed to stretch her tired legs out to the side and I let her in the best way I could. Going slightly rogue as a remote participant of Shiloh’s teachings on the other side of the Americas in Maritime Canada, was a wonderfully grounding kind of experience. Always looking forward to more Art Making PLUS experiences. Figures 3 & 4 are digital “possibilities” that I played with for a while.

~ Renate Roske-Shelton - Muse of Story June 7, 2022

Muse Day - today was about our attitude, and what stories are we telling ourselves? Since the Pandemic, I’ve been telling myself I’m old, vulnerable, running out of time. My symbols are the Tree, as it ages, it is revered and considered wise, the cave is where my muse lives, surrounded by wisdom, looking out at water, my compass points me to my true north. Surrounded by nature, I am at peace.

~Joan Tomasello Trabucco - Muse of Story June 7, 2022

Each Museday has been a fascinating dive into new and different facets of my inner inspirations and what makes me tick. In the days following Muse of Story, I continue to ponder the stories I’ve been telling and the ones I want to tell. Knowing that you get to create your story is potent medicine, indeed!

Temple of Stories

What story am I open to now, you ask me? What is true with a capital T? Today’s Scorpio Moon has me as she always does. I begin to feel, to empath, the deeper senses of the descent into the unfathomably emotional waters of today’s Scorpio Moon. Dark and penetrating sagas surface from this Temple of Stories and are created by and witnessed through the four elements.

Upon the air, behind the door wafts the fragrances of incense. A meager attempt to match my rich, intoxicating perfumes. So sweet a scent, each inhalation is the breath of life. Yet in some temple stories my last gasp was taken behind that door; snuffed out like a candle flame caught in a brisk draft. Without air, no sweet scents, no breath, but no voice to carry my/our story. And yet, Spirit eternal, dearest Ruah, continues to carry my soul’s desire to return to the Temple of Story again and again on the shoulders of the ancient ones. The Elders whose breath eternally sing collectively the story of Her.

Inside, the temple walls are darkened with shadows created by the candles lit to remember the stories of man. Shadowy creations to hold the falsities and lies. Burning fire and flames upon innocent feet. Burning to ash the guiltless Muse and I and our stories within our own temple. Disgrace and dishonor are undeserved except for the perpetrators burning desires. And yet we still return from the ashen ground, flaming like a Phoenix reborn inside the Temple of Story.

And from the Earth, their temple walls were built, rock and stone and bone by bone. Constructed over original Temples of Story to cover up the truth with a Capital T and to bury under an avalanche of dirty shaming and stoning of the innocents. But we reappear like a homecoming still holding Earth’s crystalline energy healings and knowing. We return in dancing and stomping from under the stones to retell the Temple Stories in prayer of inclusivity and peace.

And lastly, back to the water, always. We flow like water in streams of consciousness. From the Temple’s baptismal founts to the communion chalices, currents of ancient emotional stories retold again – tales of drowning the innocents flooding out and forward to be remembered. Rebirthed within the waters of Life, lotus-like in purity. As ever, flowing in ease and grace.

What story am I open to now? I am open to remembering the Light of the path I once walked in the Temple of the Stories.

~Shelley Hines - Muse of Story June 7, 2022

A Word From Your Guide

“I don't know about ya'll but I am ready for a bit of wild play. Yes, a distraction but something deep as well. Can we have a good time and heal? You bet we can. Intentional Creativity is so cathartic, and you can enter into an enhanced flow state within just a few minutes.
