MUSEA Presents

Red Thread Training

Intentional Creativity Guide Certification

June 1 - August 31, 2021

Guided by Shiloh Sophia McCloud

and the Intentional Creativity Guild

Calling all Women Healers, Priestesses, Therapists, Coaches, Teachers, Social Workers, Nurses, Doctors, Bodyworkers, Corporate Changemakers, Speakers, Thought leaders & Practitioners of every kind to learn the power of the Red Thread and Intentional Creativity to bring depth, beauty, and creativity into their practices and body of work.

The Red Thread Training is an Intentional Creativity approach to guiding circles that was founded on the teachings from Shiloh Sophia's book and manual, The Way of the Red Thread about curating a culture of connection designed to empower women to become leaders and circle facilitators.

Facilitating Red Thread Circles has the power to achieve many things. Here are a few reasons you might call together a Red Thread Circle for your friends, family, students, clients, or patients. The possibilities are infinite – what is your calling to create?

  • To transform stories of trauma into tools for empowerment
  • To illuminate and reveal the hidden self within
  • To teach how to look inward for your own information
  • To gain access to a new way of working with PTSD
  • To integrate right and left brain for maximum access to thought
  • To inspire action through liberating stuck energy
  • To bring movement into the body and the field of space around the body
  • To Illuminate the gifts of the individual with image and language
  • To increase self-awareness and intuition
  • To create connection during times of isolation

Legends of the Red Thread encircle the globe. Carriers of the Red Thread are modern-day healers ready to bring their circles into form. Perhaps this is you?

A Message from Musea Curator, Shiloh Sophia

Dear Ones,

As our elders have told us, the time for each of us to be leaders has come. Those who are able must rise! Many of us have been called to call circles, begin conversations, initiate ceremonies, and guide the awakening of others.

We feel this call in our bones and a quickening of the fire in our hearts. Yet many of us were not raised in circles. Nor have we experienced rites of passage in such a way that we feel empowered to lead the ceremony for others. This may feel ‘new’ to us, yet it was a way of life for many of our ancestors. Women are starting to remember and reclaim the call to gather and serve that is woven into our DNA.

The Red Thread is a symbol used in many lands with many legends. Most are rooted in relationships woven with connection, protection, destiny, resiliency, love, and sacred responsibility.

The Red Thread was first introduced to me by my Native American Elder, Tonantzin Guerra-Rennick over twenty years ago. She gave it to me to give. I soon learned there were legends throughout the world connected to the red thread. She says "This is our original umbilical cord..."

The Red Thread Training (known previously as Red Thread Guide) is in its 3rd year. This year we have changed the name as we are adding a greater focus on the Intentional Creativity process that you can use in your circles along with The Red Thread. We are also adding an all-new painting process to support you as you go through the training! Upon completing the training you can become a Certified Intentional Creativity Guide and be a part of our growing network of Musea Educators who continue to network and collaborate in an ongoing graduate community.

Having just gone through one of the most challenging cycles in recent history now is the time that we women can truly rise up and serve our beloveds who need the medicine we have to offer. Many are seeking healing and connection due to having been isolated for so long and experiencing the tragedies happening in our world.

If you feel healed enough to call and guide others, I hope that you will consider joining us to study the mystery and power held within the legendary red thread and become Certified to lead and guide others on their path towards healing and wholeness.

With gratitude for our connection along the Red Thread,
