Intentional Creativity® Teacher Certification is an Investment in You!

Color of Woman Intentional Creativity® Teacher Certification Training could be the greatest investment you have ever made in your life. Many students have told us this is true for them. What you receive access to within yourself, that you can then go on to teach others cannot be measured monetarily. And, we provide tools and guidance to share your work in a way that can return on your investment for years to come. There are women in our Guild community teaching full or part-time, online and in person, with thriving businesses based in Intentional Creativity®.

When considering joining us for Color of Woman, know this: Each woman’s inner wilderness seeks expression – so your client base is literally EVERY single woman. There is no ‘target audience’ or demographic or age. From the age of 6 to 85 we have women working in these mediums. All beings seek the freedom of creation. Not everyone knows they need creativity – but we are doing our best to spread the word, with our work reaching tens of thousands across the world every month. Our goal is to light up the map with Certified Intentional Creativity® Teachers all over the world.

What is required for Certification as an Intentional Creativity® Teacher? 

As you make your way around the Alchemical Compass, you will be given assignments in painting, written, and experiential form. Yes, you will be leading Red Thread Circles, Intentional Creativity® Sessions, and Painting Workshops while you are in training, which means you have the support of our team and fellow students to answer questions, share ideas, and experiences.  We will be focusing on this in an online context for those who cannot gather in person.

At the end of the Training, you will be invited to submit your Portfolio of works online for Certification. There is a one-time $250 Certification Fee due in May 2022 which covers:

  • Your Intentional Creativity® Teacher Certificate (mailed to you)
  • Your Certified Intentional Creativity® Teacher MUSEA branded digital graphic for websites and/or business cards
  • Adding Your Teacher Profile to our Intentional Creativity® Educator Directory so people can find your services. 
  • Ongoing access to our private Guild Community Group in the iMusea App

Here is one of several graphics you will be provided as a Graduate for your website and marketing materials to share about your Certification

Become a part of Intentional Creativity® Community

Color of Woman 2018 Graduation and Guild Gathering, Maui Hawaii

Would you like to be a part of a legacy of women paving the way for others to heal through creativity while prospering and thriving by living their soul work? 

One of the greatest gifts of being part of Color of Woman 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.

About our Regional Intentional Creativity® Guild Membership

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.

Color of Woman Graduation Ceremony 

Graduation from a 9 month Quest is a big deal! Each year we hold graduation ceremonies online with our new graduates and members of the existing Guild to celebrate and witness our journey, and to vision the future together. 

Prior to the pandemic, we also held annual in-person graduation experiences in California, Hawaii, Australia, and more... We hope to offer these gatherings again when it's safe to do so. Many of the group photos you see on this website were taken during graduation celebrations. You are invited to create your own ceremony as a self-initiating for completing your quests.

What Graduates are Saying about Color of Woman

Wondering whether Color of Woman is right for you? Continue reading for shares from our graduates + see what they are doing to bring Intentional Creativity® into their businesses and sacred work.

"To all the ones who are wondering if they should do Color of Woman: It was too expensive for me but I found a way and I think it was truly worth the money. I still have not done all the painting videos that were offered. No regrets about money. I was not an experienced painter - I turned into one. I wondered whether I could do 5 large paintings in one year - I did 7 and several smaller ones too. I thought I could never be a teacher, but entering the situation I was in my element because I felt so well prepared for the job. I was afraid that I would not be good enough, wild enough, spiritual enough, name it "whatever enough", but Shiloh said to me "Don't ask yourself whether you are enough - ask yourself how to become more your true Self." and I did - and I am enough, more than enough. And finally, I found out how to think for myself. My teachers, parents, and friends never taught me, but I needed to be taught. One day, during Color of Woman, I became aware that I had taken a new step - I realized that I thought independently and that I could make my mind up now and stand up for my thoughts, insights, feelings for me. Wow. I am so happy that I heard the call and answered. Thank you, Shiloh, the whole team, and all sisters!"

~ Huppicke P. Rosenthal : Germany

"Celebration! I'm honored to be now a member of a global movement run by Intentional Creativity® teachers, coaches, and artists. Getting to this point during the lockdown lifestyle caused by the pandemic was the biggest healing and empowerment journey I ever took. I'm now a professional artist selling my own art and empowering leaders in their own evolution by unleashing their creativity and curating their own consciousness.

Thank you Maestra, teacher, and mentor Shiloh Sophia for being such a powerful and inspiring role model. You truly over delivered to a magical degree.

What a journey. This is not the end. Just the beginning of the next expansion."

~ Sylvia Becker-Hill

Painting: Talisman painting called “Pusteblume”, German for Dandelion

"I’ve often likened Color of Woman to a college for women. The Intentional Creativity® Teacher Training Certification one can gain from going through the training is as rigorous and thoughtful as any other advanced degree. I feel qualified to make this comparison, as I was a doctoral candidate in a Ph.D. program for Cognitive Psychology.

The Color of Woman course work is so thoughtfully and lovingly organized so as to lead you on a journey into understanding your soul work. I believe this to be a lifelong missive, but Color of Woman can serve as your launching pad, and also help you work through or out of patterns that are not serving you or your loved ones.

I strongly believe in the work that is done here and have witnessed firsthand other’s transformations as a reader for women who participated in the current class. I think I can state unanimously that we all feel called to serve, maybe in different ways, but helping you on your path to being you as you can be."

~ JP Kim, 2016 Graduate United States, California

Painting: The World Between Worlds

"What an incredible experience, one filled with such richness on so many levels. By far the best thing I have ever invested in, in my life. You are one incredible teacher and I am deeply grateful for your courage and bravery to create this life-changing quest for women worldwide. I am so deeply honored to be standing here in this circle of amazing women who dared to travel this journey alongside me this past year. Congratulations to each and every one of them."

Color of Woman is a significant investment in time, energy, and financial resources. Colleagues in the business of self-development often charge nearly double for trainings of similar structure. We have a fully dedicated staff, as well as graduates who come back to teach, which are supported by our budget each year.

Business Development & Application of Intentional Creativity® in the Marketplace

Our training includes an intensive module on all the basics needed to start or refine one's business - with a comprehensive full-color business plan process. Women who are really ready to make a change, not only in the way they are living their life and creating income but how they are powerfully architecting their futures, are invited to join us.

Imagine having your own classes, workshops, and retreats where you teach and guide women virtually from all over the world! Sound fun? Or perhaps you're shaking in your boots? We will provide a supportive curriculum to help you brave the virtual world, including how we create sacred space online and how we run Zoom technology. This is a new core focus for our Intentional Creativity® Teacher Training.

In our research, we have discovered that the majority of women we work with, whether they are a Doctor, Shaman, Mother, Therapist, Healer, Pastor, Social Worker, Body Worker, or High School Teacher, all are motivated by a desire to serve through their unique voice and leadership. The Color of Woman Training provides an alchemical bridge between service-based leadership and creative fire. Your creative fire gives rise to your unique content, your messages, your sacred activism, and your soul work. These women visionaries do not want to sacrifice their creative desires for their work 'in the world'. Women have been waiting too long for 'our time'. This is our time.

Real-World Examples of Intentional Creativity® being Applied

Photos from Musea: Center for Intentional Creativity® in Sonoma, California. In September 2020 Shiloh Sophia held a socially distanced painting gathering called the S7 Society with eight women outside. If each person pays $125 or more to attend, you could make over $1,000 in revenue over a weekend.

Watch a video from Intentional Creativity® Graduate and "Creativity Counsellor", Gisela Piniero, who lives in Perth Australia, and leads in-person and online experiences. Gisela is also part of our Musea Team and has taught herself many of the technologies needed to create a business online.

We have students who may not have much experience with the online world when they first take Color of Woman, yet if you have a willingness to be open-minded and learn, you can make progress in a short amount of time.

We even have graduates who teach together both online and in-person, as we have a beautiful ongoing graduate community.

The Application of Intentional Creativity® is LIMITLESS!

You can gather women, and men if you choose: Intentional Creativity® can be applied to ANY THEME and shared by ANYONE with a desire to serve. The real question the training invites you to answer on this quest is, what is your content? Through exploring this question, a woman gains the power to curate her own consciousness utilizing the useful tools of intuitive painting, inspired writing, and ritual.

Our teachers lead in diversity from what calls to their hearts. From Red Thread Circles to 13 Step Archetype weekend workshops to weeklong retreats, as well as yearlong programs; we teach women who long to lead, how to teach with the power of Intentional Creativity®. We have graduates who have created their own schools, online and on-location businesses, opened galleries and centers, and have had art shows around the world. But with all of that, this training isn't really about making good art and it isn't about developing a 'style' of painting.  

This sacred work is about expanding awareness and granting access to parts of ourselves we cannot reach otherwise - we need to journey inward. That is why it works with elders and children, in corporate settings, and healing centers, education and hospitals, prisons, social services, and the 'office' of your choice. Some of our over 500 teachers worldwide lead destination retreats and others serve on the front lines of suffering.

Where and how are you called to serve? 

Shiloh Sophia led a Prima Materia Retreat in July 2020 with a small circle of women to begin offering in person experiences again at MUSEA.

"I have become someone very different than I imagined I could be as a result of this work. And who I am is actually authentic and empowered me. I teach I paint, I write, I create content, I collaborate and I love. I might have done some of those things but probably not all of them and not so wholeheartedly. I feel deeply blessed. And you will find deep soul friends who love and support you in this work as well. That might be the best part."

More Real-World Intentional Creativity® Teachers doing this work, and there are many more each year …  

Flora Aube is a first-year student of Color of Woman and she founded the Art of Allowing Academy – and while her approach has expanded, her roots were nourished in our classroom.  

Catt Geller created Cosmic Smashbooking and is now certifying teachers herself ONLINE, rocking the known world.  

Amber Kuileimailani Bonnici created Woman Unleashed, largely rooted in the work, she claims the lineage of Intentional Creativity and she teaches it still to tens of thousands ONLINE, including her wildly popular Virtual Retreats: Woman Unleashed.

There is almost a sensual longing for communion with others who have a large vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendship between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality impossible to describe.”

~ Teilhard de Chardan

Jassy Watson Earthist created Soulscape™ Painting and in 2019 launched her first-ever Teacher Training within our Guild.  

Jenafer Owen created the Jenafer Joy Approach, teaches the best collage of all time online, directs all my high-level programs, and guides our graduates to create their own online classes (and is the mother of my [Shiloh] God-daughter Hazel!)  

Heidi S. Moondancer founded an online women’s community, serving thousands of women online and inviting Intentional Creativity teachers to share their gifts via online teaching.

Suzanne Grace combined her jewelry making with her painting and has recently engaged in some of the most profound business she could ever imagine with her art, and opened a gallery and workshop for her production called Rock Mama.  

Mandisa Amber, another first-year student, teaches within the training and is teaching at a university. She also developed the diversity-based curriculum for artists that we are sharing in Color of Woman.  

Emily Grieves founded her own retreat center in Mexico and is teaching Intentional Creativity® there!  

And all of these women have also sold their paintings to Collectors! And the list goes on... Can you see yourself sharing a step-by-step process for women to create a painting of the feminine the way that you have?

Chances are many students thought they were not going to be able to do it, but they did! Now, because of our Guild of over 500 teachers worldwide, the world is populated by thousands and thousands of images of the feminine that WOMEN define. Not some magazine cover, Hollywood version of women as symbols for some unmet desire. Nope. We create etheric, empowered, cosmic, rooted images of the feminine and are changing the way our children are raised in a culture that honors and celebrates women.

In 2019 Jassy Watson came all the way from Australia to teach her Soulscape Painting™ process at MUSEA in Sonoma featured here with Guild member Lauren Weatherford.
