Join us for a Quest of a Lifetime to Live Your Calling as you Experience a Transformational Journey through Five Feminine Archetypal Frameworks

"Self-Expression is how the Soul communicates with us. Everyone needs a time in their life where they are FREE to explore how their inner world informs the world around them. We are all equally creative. Creativity is not about talent, it's about liberation!"
~ Curate Shiloh Sophia


For 13 years over 1000 women have said yes to themselves by embarking on a 9-month Quest into the heart of their deepest Soul Work.


Color of Woman is ideal for women educators, guides, mamas, and healers. For women who long to serve. For creatives who want to develop a portfolio, create a book that centers on your gifts and tell a new story. For those who want to serve in the great unfolding and have your voice count!

You do not need any previous experience other than a desire to heal, transform and develop your work in the world. Get a cuppa tea and explore this experience of a lifetime founded in 2010.

Let me ask you a few questions...

Are you called to gather others into circle?
To share your deepest knowings and gifts?

What if we could share a process with you that has been practiced by tens of thousands of women around the world to step into calling, self-agency and a life-work that you love?

If you are looking to experience a self-initiation that will call you into the heart of your soul work, this is it. Nothing will look the same after this - really - and you will have a portfolio of your body of work that will open your heart, expand your mind and guide the future of your sacred work in the world.

What is Intentional Creativity?

Choose your own self-expression first, and then see how natural it is
to share with those you long to serve.

In the words of our Founder, Shiloh Sophia

"Intentional Creativity is a creative spiritual practice and a lifestyle choice. We create what we create with love and mindfulness. This approach to self-expression can be applied to any medium including painting, writing, sculpting, jewelry, and the arts, but also to cooking, bodywork, gardening, dancing, song, coaching, and conversation. Any medium can be used by people from all professions to easily add this feature to their existing work to offer a fresh, dynamic opportunity for clients to engage in the healing arts and awakened consciousness.

Intentional Creativity is one of the most potent tools to end suffering, create resiliency, state change, reduce stress and breakthrough. We aren't just 'making art for art's sake', we are making art with the purpose of chosen transformation.

In Color of Woman, our chosen medium for learning the practice of Intentional Creativity is painting and storytelling held within a circle. Here at MUSEA University it is of great importance to us that the work is applicable to what you care about seeing changed in the world, and how you can bring your creativity to that work. Every revolution needs artists to tell a more true story of what is happening.

You just can't believe what happens in women's lives when they spend time creating in this way! Finding their truest voice, image and the story they want to tell. This is a gorgeous revelation and I am glad to have this work to share based on my 30 years of research and application of the material with tens of thousands of women worldwide. Most women who graduate feel like it is one of the greatest accomplishments of their life!

When you do what you do with love, in an ongoing practice, you live into the Self you always knew you could be. And a woman who is self-expressed and fully engaged and ready to share her gifts is what the world needs right now. And it is what YOU need right now. To choose yourself, and see how that flows right into the life work you long to live into."

What is Color of Woman?

Color of Woman is the Intentional Creativity® Teacher Certification Training designed to be a Quest to the Heart of your Soul Work. The curriculum is rooted in the exploration of five personal archetypes that moves you through terrains of explorative inquiry and hidden worlds to discover your own internal content.

Your content is that which you are here to cause and create. Your story and reason for being who you be. To answer the question - What is yours to experience in this lifetime?

This exploration calls upon you to access and unlock your sacred information and how you wish to serve and who you wish to work with. You will begin to develop creative process that is unique to you, while learning the essential teachings of Intentional Creativity. Most of all this training is about accessing and liberating YOUR innate self-expression. It isn't about 'good art', it is about art that feels good because it is so transformational!

Color of Woman shares a lineage of teachings passed from hand to hand and heart to heart. Intentional Creativity is as old as the first humans who created art and our personal story origins date back close to 100 years starting with our Art Ancestors, two women who passed their teachings onto two women who passed them onto Shiloh Sophia.

Color of Woman invites participants to inhabit the fullness of the Artist-self and learn to guide others to awaken through Intentional Creativity.

Hear from our Past Color of Woman Graduates

"I really appreciate the organization and delivery of this course. Color of Woman has been very good for me. I’ve loved exploring the depths of my psyche, painting, healing, finding my voice, and reclaiming my power. I’ve loved being in communion with exciting women around the globe. This reinforced my sense of social justice and equanimity. Prior to my engagement with Intentional Creativity, I was lost to myself; a mere shadow of who I was and who I can be. This has been a healing journey for me. Sending much love and gratitude."

~ 2023 Color of Woman Student, Daria Cronic

"I am amazed, looking back now, at the magnitude of the work I feel I have done, we all have, in this program. I feel I have stumbled onto my truest passion, albeit at age 72! Color of Woman has given me an entirely new way of relating to myself and to the world, and much, much more than I can possibly say. Now I need to grow my wings. I just started reading more of the Vision Book and all the wisdom and insights I gained getting to know Caron and Eden McCloud. Lots of beautifully written and rendered gems of wisdom and inspiration. I can picture little Shiloh. Everyone on the team has been wonderful and supportive. I scrolled through some of my old posts and there was so much thoughtfulness, time, encouragement, and kindness that was given by the entire Team throughout my journey, all along the way. Thank you so much for all the love, guidance, and magic eyes. I would have never thought two years ago, after having seen much uncertainty with medical treatment, the state of the country and world, hand surgery, and COVID within those two years, that I had the best time of my life ahead of me. I feel incredibly fortunate and privileged to be here and part of this special community of divine goddesses."

~2023 Color of Woman Student, Susan Bessey

"What an amazing experience. Beyond anything I imagined., what I got from it, what you gave, what each staff person gave...worth every single penny. Much more than I anticipated. I love you all. "

~ 2021 Color of Woman Graduate Intentional Creativity Teacher, Robin Wiggs

"Color of Woman is an incredible journey to examine your heart and soul and learn how to put one foot in front of the other and MAKE YOUR DREAMS HAPPEN! This has been so meaningful for me. People who know me see the changes and see me stepping into my life courageously. I have so much gratitude for Shiloh, the many supportive teachers, and my dear sisters traveling this path alongside me. We have all encouraged and witnessed each other on the way. Such a blessing!"

~ Intentional Creativity® Teacher, Patty Iammatteo: United States 2018

Learn to teach Intentional Creativity and apply this approach to your clients, circles and curriculum. Any theme you work with, trauma, grief, breakthrough to breakdown, this work is the ideal approach.

We provide two manuals, the Intentional Creativity Guide and The Way of the Red Thread. Both books were created by our founder Shiloh Sophia and contain the materials you need to learn, practice and then teach this body of work.

and the circle you have been seeking

The Intentional Creativity Movement, Museum, and University have been gathering together for over thirty years. You get to be a part of a weave of circles with women who are doing their own work in the world in kinship. Many people say they have never experienced a community like ours.

Our plan is to last for over 500 years, to grow into Elders together as creatives, activists, healers, teachers, and guides to a future we call our own.

and the results of 9 months of devotion

Develop your own body of work with paintings and stories. Each painting you create will become a part of your Portfolio, which is a book you make of your art and stories. The journey is guided step by step.

We provide a private learning community, trained support staff, and both live and recorded content.

Access Your Internal Wisdom and Learn to Share Your Gifts

What would you create in your life if you could courageously create a life path that reflects who you truly are, inside and out?

Here at MUSEA University, we hold true that each woman has an internal codex of information that is unique to her and who she is. Our practice of intuitive painting and storytelling creates the 'perfect storm' that invites this internal wisdom to move from the invisible realms to the visible realms. The painting is the artifact that remains, the evidence, and serves as a visual symbol and oracle of insight.

Develop Your Creative Spiritual Practice and Awaken

How would it feel to have an integrated whole system practice that includes your heart, body, mind, field and soul? Making art can be a sacred practice, a way of being in connection with the Spirit of Life. At times we experience art is a calling from the universe – and our response can be painting images that bring healing and possibility that didn’t exist before. We believe artists, writers, poets, and dancers balance the scales of the universe by contributing to the profound medicine of beauty. Intentional Creativity® brings beauty while creating a deeper level of internal access to the desires of your soul, what we call your soul work.

Connect with a Global Network of Women and Make Friends

Joining this community not only brings unreasonable self-expression and creativity into your life and teachings but there is more. A connection with like-hearted WISE and WILD women around the world - both online and in person. Most people say they have never experienced a community like this before. And while there are over 10,000 women in our forward-facing circle, the Red Thread Cafe, internally we have over 500 teachers who work together and collaborate.

We feel very blessed that each year graduates come back to the training as staff and offer their guidance, unique curriculum, and support for the next year's class. Many graduates teach alongside Shiloh Sophia both virtually and in person. We provide over 40 paid support positions and over $500k per year in income for our graduates within our online and on-location MUSEA Museum and University.

Develop a Body of Work and Learn to Teach

You will be amazed at what you make during this training. A series of paintings that you never dreamed was possible, even without previous skill. A series of poetic storytelling writings that go along with the paintings. As well as developing a new full-color business plan and oracle cards that you make yourself, but that you can also teach.

We have over twenty teaching modules that YOU CAN TEACH and MODIFY to match any theme you want to share with those you are working with.

A Letter from Shiloh Sophia

Dear Creative One,

Let me tell you how truly grateful I am that our paths are crossing at this time in our lives. This work just lights me up as I have seen the powerful transformation and impact Color of Woman has had on thousands of women from all over the world and all walks of life. 

We have been called together for an adventure in what is possible as we give ourselves permission to DARE to enter the domain of our muse, our own desires for what we truly want in our lives. I have called you and you will call others.
I believe your client beloveds are already calling you. Most of the time our Graduates discover that those they long to serve are the ones doing the calling! I can hear them now, they want to know when you will be having your first workshop. They can't wait to come!

I believe that inside each one of us is the desire to express ourselves and to truly 'be' art. To take up the space that belongs to us and to stop hiding the wild and wondrous aspects of ourselves that have often been 'too much' for those around us. Most of us don't feel at home here, let alone feel like we really 'like' being here. What would your life need to look like in order to say, "I like it here"? Now THAT is a radical question!

This training is designed to cause outrageous self-expression in your life and the lives of those you serve! We offer the tools to express yourself and to share the gift of Intentional Creativity. As we become a more virtual world, our this training will have a specific focus on creating sacred space online and leading in a powerful way.

Creativity can be a miracle formula whose time has come. It has been the best medicine to get me through these times. Because you have access to YOU and your thoughts, you have the ability to live a life you cause and create, even one that you LOVE!

As you go through this 9-month quest into the heart of your soul work, eventually your circumstances begin to align with your ever-evolving illuminated life. When you embody who you know you are destined to be, you can live from an empowered and joyful place even in the midst of the great challenges we face in our lives and in our world. I invite you to explore the constellation of information we have prepared for you and see if you feel called to hold your piece of the red thread and join us.

Many blessings on your path and signed with a splash of red paint,

What Are You Here to Cause & Create?
