MUSEA : Intentional Creativity Museum is delighted to bring you the collection of the Color of Woman Class of 2019. Each woman was invited to submit her favorite painting as a part of the collection. Here is our show to share with you. Many of these women were not painters before, and learned so that they could share the gift of painting with others. Some were professionals who wanted to learn how to teach in a way that their students could truly be catalyzed by. Now in its tenth year, Color of Woman is a 9 month Rites of Passage in paint for women to discover their own soul voice and bring into being the soul work it inspires.
This is their work.
Sister Vision – Writing By Moana Whatu, Australia and New Zealand Women from around the globe, everyday women, ordinary women Who through Intentional Creativity, journeyed to find the ‘extraordinary’ within, recognising their own value, worth and purpose. Women who dived in, deep and ready, Who heard the invitation, the call of the wild! Who heard the gentle coaxing ‘are you ready?’, ‘it is time!’, ‘the world needs you!’ And so, we entered in… We gathered, around the fire of the storyteller, the mythical, the ‘wild out there’ and the ‘hot mess’ We weaved the red thread around us with love, hope and intention in sacred spaces Each woman strengthened and encouraged by our community of creatives, Curated our stories of love, pain and everything in between and beyond Beyond this time, this place, we created We traveled our inner world, explored territories within we hadn’t yet listened to nor wanted seen, \ yet there was a longing to visit, to sit and have café with. We explored this earth and the stars, a community of glorious women connected by our magic Red Thread The canvas as our portals, our brushes our wands and magic sticks, our paint the expressions of our inner world that wanted liberation Women from around the globe, connected across time, connected by intention and by a spirit of community as only the essence of a Woman can. We’ve laughed and cried our way to our authentic, visionary selves and our connection to the Great Spirit. We breathed ourselves back into existence, into living, into the creative beings that we are and into the Remembering! We’ve fallen in love with ourselves, some of us, for the first time in our lives! Here we are, a collection of now not so ordinary woman, living every day, stepping forward with more confidence. Now we have the medicine, we know how to access the medicine because we are the medicine! ~ The Color of Woman Intentional Creativity Teacher Training offered through MUSEA : Intentional Creativity is a powerful training that catalyzes women in remembering and gaining access to their authentic voice, finding their soulwork and expressing their divine creativity.

Join me in Celebrating our 2019 Color of Woman Intentional Creativity Teachers! Last night tears streamed down my face to watch the joy of these women celebrating the completion of a Vision Quest to the Heart of their Soul Work. As they danced down the aisle being supported by their sisters in claiming their life work, I could not imagine a more hopeful happening. My heart was beaming with joy and with pure overflowing love. Drum beat from the heart….I present to you…..

Message from the Curator, Shiloh Sophia
These courageous women have journeyed together on a 9 month Vision Quest. These creative souls have been diving into the depth of their being to discover, articulate and reveal what lay hidden in their deepest soul and bring it forth in living color!
Each woman created a body of work in the form of paintings and writings featuring the articulation of her own personal content and teachings. She taught classes when she was afraid, she became bold as she discovered what she already knew. Through sharing, she learned more of who she was as a teacher and a wild feminine soul. She now knows how the power of creativity can heal and transform! She has gathered others into her Red Thread Circle and will continue to do so as a Certified Intentional Creativity Teacher.
She explored 5 primary archetypes to prepare herself for guiding others in transformational intentional creating. She became her own oracle, realizing what she already knew, but in a new image-informed way. She shed previous archetypes and stepped into a new one – a design of her own making! OH YA! Watch out world!
As the founder of Color of Woman : Intentional Creativity Teacher Training, I am beyond amazed at the gift of serving through this work for over 25 years and this is our 9th year to celebrate women educators. The rigor in the training connects directly with calling forth what each woman is here to cause and create. Each woman has initiated herself into the lineage of Intentional Creativity and her own creative lineage.
May these women be a ‘danger’ to the establishments they wish to transform!! May they be mighty in the creation of the curriculum of the future. May they be audacious in the creation of their work in the world of self expression. May they deepen into their primary relationships with loved ones, family and their Beloveds. May they, with all of us in our circles, bring images of wholeness, beauty, and revelation to the places that need it the most.
WE TOGETHER ARE TRANSFORMING the IMAGE and EXPERIENCE of the feminine on the earth. Starting with our own image – and calling other women to create their own images. A restoration of much sacred information that has been lost, has been brought current and forges the path to the future. We are experiencing a sacred remembrance!
Intentional Creativity is one of the mighty tools in the medicine basket that they have agreed to carry. Most of these women were already solidly on their path – but knew that their own creativity was needed to bring their work to the next place – and in that – desired to bring that creativity to the world.
When women enter COLOR of WOMAN it is a weaving of bringing all the parts that once seemed separate into wholeness. This is healing. This is action. This is now. We give thanks to our teachers and the Intentional Creativity lineage who made this possible – who went before us and forged a path where we understand what it means to ‘bow to the stone’, as Lenore Thomas Straus taught us.
How does reading this, seeing this, knowing this, make you feel? Tune into THAT. Let’s be that joy together. Here we come world!!! Feel free to comment below
With great love and gratitude, tears, and BLISS within my heart at the pleasure of your company,
