When you choose to become a MUSEA Member, you will find yourself gathering with our global community of creatives for fun, catalyzing and inspiring virtual monthly circles. Together we celebrate art, share our stories, build our resilience individually and collectively through the practice of Intentional Creativity, engage in love-centered, equity-based community care, and learn how to follow the lead of our Muses!
Our collective is based on an ethos of LOVE being at the center of our choices and self-expression being a key ingredient to a fulfilling and conscious experience of life. With love at the center and creativity to nourish and catalyze us, we can do great things together! Our MUSEA Members regularly share with us how powerful it has been for them to be welcomed, to find a place of aligned belonging, where witness and generosity of spirit abounds, and where support is offered not only in their creative practice, but in their life journey. As our world continues to face many challenges and uncertainties, here at MUSEA, we have curated a place of sanctuary, offering the powerful resilience-building tool of Intentional Creativity and the embrace of caring, creative, and inspiring community!
We Gather Around What Matters to Us and Our World
About Our MUSEA Membership
What is the MUSEA Membership experience
Your MUSEA Membership grants you entrance into a Creative Sanctuary – a dedicated space for Intentional Creativity artists to engage in devotional creativity, art-full self care, Red Thread belonging, soul-sourced resilience, and conscious and loving community. We are informed by the cultural framework and practice of Intentional Creativity rooted in a matriarchal lineage of art making with love at the center. In this Creative Sanctuary each member is invited to experience the freedom of being self expressed and authentic. It is a liminal and timeless place where you can recharge and tap into your creative potential, which reignites your creative life force through the transformational tool of Intentional Creativity and the witness of community.
How does MUSEA Membership support the work of the Intentional Creativity Foundation?
INTENTIONAL CREATIVITY MUSEUM PROGRAMMING, LINEAGE AND LEGACY
Membership supports the work of the Intentional Creativity Foundation and Museum, ensuring the continuation of the powerful medicine of Intentional Creativity, our lineage and root system, as well as the creation of exhibits, museum shows, and events that center women artists. Our Museum and Membership programming contribute to our member’s wellbeing, as well as to equity and justice in the Museum and art world, and our shared cultural spaces. Your membership investment becomes a part of a regenerative economy supporting the continuing work of the ICF, which in turn supports and nourishes you!
How does MUSEA Membership intersect with MUSEA University and Community?
PARTICIPATION, PRACTICE, AND INTENTIONAL CREATIVITY CULTURE
As an official MUSEA member you are making a conscious choice to become more interwoven in our Intentional Creativity community by developing your devotional creative practice inside a dedicated, monthly container with others. Many people who have experienced an Intentional Creativity class or circle with Shiloh Sophia and our Guild Educators, feel the desire to get ‘plugged in’ to our community in a more meaningful and regular way. Membership then becomes a wonderful option! When you become a MUSEA Member, you are taking a step beyond subscriber of the Red Thread Café Classroom, iMusea App, or email list, and entering into our inner circle – our MUSEA Collective of artists who desire to explore with Intentional Creativity while also building meaningful relationships and experiencing the support and belonging of red thread circle. It is your YES to being an active participant of Intentional Creativity, a part of our emergent IC culture. Simultaneously, you may also be a student of MUSEA University, participating in its classes and trainings, in which case membership is suggested as a concurrent, supportive experience to catalyze you on your student journey. The University is the for-profit side of MUSEA, however both branches of MUSEA (ICF and University) exist to benefit you and weave you in our global collective. The Intentional Creativity Foundation and MUSEA University have a lot of crossover yet are distinct entities. Musea University provides Intentional Creativity classes and trainings that lead to certification and becoming an Intentional Creativity Guild Member. The Intentional Creativity Foundation and Museum provides the membership and community practice container as well as the museum exhibits, shows and special events.
What are the unique benefits of being a MUSEA Member?
INSPIRATION, CATALYZATION, AND CONSCIOUS COMMUNITY

The Intentional Creativity® Approach
Where story, art and science intersect
For more than two decades MUSEA has nurtured an Intentional Creativity cultural framework rooted in the teachings of a matriarchal art lineage of storytelling and image making. Intentional Creativity is an inter-disciplinary practice weaving creative arts, sciences, somatics, transpersonal psychology and archaeomythology.
CONNECT As a Musea Member, you are a part of creating the colorful fabric of the future informed by artists. We are Painters, Poets, Sculptors, Storytellers, Dancers, Illustrators, Seamstresses, Actors – all forms of self-expression make a contribution to the life we are creating together. While many of our members are revolutionaries at heart, we aren’t spending all of our time and resources dismantling old systems, rather we are creating new structures designed to carry us into a stronger and more holistic weave.
CONTRIBUTE When you become a MUSEA Member you are contributing your own unique threads to the weave because we desire the goodness of your company. As an advocate for the importance of the self-expression of each person, we begin to shape a culture that champions the images, voices, hands, stories from many lands. And of course, the many MUSES! Who knows how soon your very own art may be featured in an upcoming show! Dream about it – because modern-day women artists getting into high-end galleries and museums, has never been likely. We are changing that.
EXPERIENCE Our memberships are designed with you in mind and heart, in consideration of the kinds of connections you have told us matter to you. In 2021, since we aren’t able to invite you to in-person gatherings yet, we have amplified the diversity of our virtual connectivity. You choose how much or how little you participate. As a member, you are part of participating in and experiencing the shows we are sharing.
PARTICIPATE We have structured the MUSEA Membership levels to align with the growth stages of our members. Our memberships are highly experiential including practices of meditation, movement, music, mythic imagination, educational exploration, and the Intentional Creativity approach to making art. These experiences are brought into each of our member meetups, which we call Circles. We invite you to bring your journal, colored pens, red thread, and a cuppa tea, coffee, or champagne to each circle or show opening. Yes, some of us even wear fancy hats and scarves! Embrace making each membership experience a contribution to your own art and creative lifestyle.
