New Member Orientation

Below we have outlined five simple steps for your New Member Orientation! We encourage you to engage with each step outlined below as a way to initiate your membership journey, learn about your member benefits, and connect with our incredible community.

Consider making time to complete one step a day, or do them all at once! Each step takes just a few minutes, and will support you in getting familiar and settling in with ease to your MUSEA Membership.

New to Intentional Creativity? An Introduction

image

If you are brand new to the practice of Intentional Creativity, we encourage you to view some of our Educational Videos sharing about the practice, philosophy and methodology of Intentional Creativity, and how we work with it in our community. Of course experiencing it for yourself it the most exciting way to begin!

As a part of your membership journey, we offer monthly Creative Inquiries and Art Journal Actions available on your Membership Portal, as well as Intentional Creativity processes at many of our monthly circles. This will provide you with opportunities to practice Intentional Creativity and experience the joy and healing that comes from this way of making art! No experience necessary, just the willingness to show up and access your self expression.

We invite you to begin to set up your creative studio space, whether that is your kitchen table, a closet, an art room, or the corner of your bedroom! Set up a beautiful altar, add some candles, jars ready with water, a selection of paint colors to get you started, a ball of red thread (which we use in our creative connection circles), and a set of paintbrushes all your own. You have opened the door to Intentional Creativity, and now you can let yourself get excited and even more curious as you step into your Artist Archetype with us!

What Communications to Expect From Us

Our Membership Team will be sending membership communications to your inbox once per week on Tuesdays, providing membership weaving, weekly Creative Inquiries or Art Journal Actions, relevant announcements, and a helpful listing of upcoming Membership Circles, Museum Events, and Musea Educational offerings.

We also publish a once monthly MUSEA Member Zine that highlights community members and all of the exciting and inspiring ‘happenings’ within our creative and inspiring collective! Who knows, we might be featuring you one day soon!

There is a lot of goodness in store for you on your MUSEA Membership Journey. We encourage you to take it one step at a time, and engage with our nourishing creative content at your leisure and when inspired. You can pick up where you left off, or jump in to something new! All approaches are welcomed and we encourage you to follow your creative joy!

Once again, we are truly excited to have you join us as a member.

We look forward to creating a wonderful future together,

With heART,

~ The Musea Membership Team with Artist Shiloh Sophia
