Metacognitive Painting with Watercolors

Do you see creativity as a curative modality in human suffering?

Do you feel that a trauma-informed approach combined with creativity could be a part the solution?

Do you feel called to be a part of revolutionizing the field of healing by including the clients in awakening their inner healers?

For most of our lives, we are taught to seek solutions outside of ourselves, as if the answer lies outside of what we know and who we already are. The paradigm of the 'healer outside' is enforced over and over in the 'expert model' where the gifted are exalted as the ones who are in the know.


What if, what we are in need of is not more naturally gifted people endowed with special powers, but rather each individual to gain access to their own solutions and sensations so they can navigate their own consciousness, energy, body, and heart?

MUSEA is in the process of exploring becoming a university. MUSEA University Extention Education Program offers an innovative approach to utilizing creativity as a modality for healing called Intentional Creativity® (IC). Intentional Creativity is based on the work of Shiloh Sophia, Jonathan McCloud, Sue Hoya Sellars, and the Intentional Creativity collective with over twenty years of research and tens of thousands of people practicing. Intentional Creativity prepares healing practitioners with innumerable creative activities to reveal stunning insight, innovation, and direction for their clients.


Prisma training is an experience for the healing arts professional to discover new ways of working that are sourced by the activation of the client's intuitive self-expression. A source that is often hidden from view. Intentional Creativity enables the invisible world of the client to become visible so that both the client and the practitioner can read and gather clues to a path of transformation, treatment, protocol designed by the client for their own use. Authorship in the creation of a path of healing increases ownership and accountability as well as the development and capacity of self-trust.

Explore some of the visual imagery that accompany our teachings.

Here are a few examples of the kind of work we may do with our clients in watercolor. We will show you the most simple approach to painting and drawing.

Here are a few examples of visual mediation teachings that we will practice.

Here are a few examples of the kind of work we may do with pen and paper.

Don't see yourself as an artist? We believe everyone is creative and given the ideal tools and concepts can tap into their deepest creative life force. So if you are concerned that you don't have the talent for the kind of creativity you see on this page or in our community, or perhaps you don’t feel comfortable with art or don’t know much about it, you are in the right place.

This training will guide you in the basics of line making, shape-making, and hand lettering from an intuitive perspective. Drawing pictures is one of the most natural expressions of thoughts, feelings, and frequency of energy. Intentional Creativity has nothing to do with artistic talent. Messy and chaotic art reveals the hidden gems ... This isn’t about drawing or writing well, but about using the tools to get your ideas conscious. Often the patterns of colors, shapes, lines, marks that have meaning for the client and are revealed to be explored, offering an entirely new potential insight for the client and the practitioner.

What's the science behind Intentional Creativity?

From the time we're born we are actively curious and creative. As newborns, we listen, touch, taste, smell, make sounds. As infants, we get mobile, we play pretend, make new sounds that form into language. This activity is more than human development, we are creating AND we are increasing the ability of the brain to form and reorganize synaptic connections (neuroplasticity), especially in response to learning and experiencing.

One of our primary ideas in PRISMA is that if you and your client understand the very basics of the science of how doing Intentional Creativity can help amplify the capacity to receive the benefits.

Intuitively, we know that creativity is good for us, but what does science have to say about the benefits of trauma-informed approach creativity?

  • Activate the intelligence of the client to do their own healing work
  • Helps relieve stress, including PTSD and long term impacts of trauma
  • Energizes the body and energy systems by choice
  • Reduces dementia and cognition challenges
  • Improves mental health and increases a positive outlook
  • Boosts your immune system from the inside out
  • Improved coherence and connectivity between left and right brain function
  • Helps to process difficult emotions and feelings by offering a 'place to work it out'
  • Increases empathy, tolerance, compassion and awarenes

The PRISMA Philosophy

The PRISMA Philosophy understands that healing is amplified when we can know and see how it works from a scientific somatics perspective. For example, the WHY of how it works can enable a client to be actively engaged in their journey of healing by becoming 'at cause'. To be at cause includes being able to apply the 'building blocks' - a.k.a. regenerative nature of creation - in their experience.

An Intentional Creativity Practitioner works with consciousness, the body, and the field to create a condition in which the client can do their own work. This condition is accessible through teachings about the science and offering practical ways to apply them both in and beyond the session. Intentional Creativity can be applied to any area in need of healing and paired with any additional modality or spiritual tradition seamlessly.

What will you learn in this year long journey?

PRISMA training provides healing arts practitioners-in-training with a new set of Intentional Creativity practices, tools, session templates and capabilities to guide individuals and groups in their healing journey with plenty of room to innovate and make the work your own.

Self-expression in the arts positively affects mood, function, cognition, and behavior and your capacity to work with your cleint to awaken their inner healing capacity. Self-expression plays a significant role in developing our capacity to relate to others and engage in deep relationships and be a part of our own healing journey. Yet so often, we withhold our creativity because we confuse it with talent - you will work with your client to untangle the talen and creativity riddle and access the deepest well of insight that they have.

The curriculum is based on a personal experience of your own creativity and the information you gather during your process. As well as a transpersonal experience with how you choose to share the approach with your clients.

Each practitioner will work to weave the material into their existing offerings as well as create new offerings. You will begin practicing with your clients and also your training cohort as soon as we begin.

There are twelve CORE MODULES that we will explore during the year and practice in our circles and with our clients. There are also meditations in COHERENCE, CO-CREATION, COMPASSION, and CLAIRCONSCIOUSNESS that we will engage during our creative process and circles.

Below is a list of some of the planned curricula to get you excited about what is coming. Additional materials will be added as our model is emergent and adaptive based on what arises during the training.

About the In-Person Gatherings


The dates for the two 4-day gatherings are April 22 - 25 and December 9 - 12, 2022. We understand there are limitations and concerns with travel, and we also hear that some people are wanting to travel and study together in person. If there is enough interest, these dates are reserved just for PRISMA students to come together. We begin at 3 PM on Day 1.

The location will be at MUSEA: Center for Intentional Creativity in Sonoma, California, and more details, including suggestions for lodging, will be shared in plenty of time to help you plan your travel. *We always recommend purchasing travel insurance. Your tuition covers materials, instruction, and some meals, from our in-house culinary team. For those who cannot travel, these events will be broadcast via Livestream, though we will not be able to record every aspect.


Attending in-person to meet and spend time with Shiloh Sophia, Jonathan McCloud and your fellow students is a rich and dynamic experience that cannot be duplicated in the virtual realm. Our point is that if you feel well enough to travel and would love connection in person, do what you can to join us! We would love to have you for both events, and picking one is fine too. We are willing to work with you to make this happen! Space will likely be limited and is offered on a first-come basis.


We will be working together to develop your website or website offering for the addition of Intentional Creativity into your scope of practice. As you work with clients and gain images, testimonials, and language for your work, you will be adding them to your website, sales page, and offerings.

About Musea University


The work of Intentional Creativity has been in practice for over twenty years. We are in the process of forming a University and part of our work is to demonstrate several graduated classes. Prisma is our primary training that will be built to move into the University. This is a several year process and there are no guarantees about accreditation or how it works. Students agree that they understand we are in an experimental phase, not entirely a university yet - but an Extention Education Program. More about this will be revealed to those called to apply. Those who are not interested in University Education Units can simply receive a Certification as Practitioner.

What do Intentional Creativity graduates say about the training?

2022 is our first year of PRISMA Intentional Creativity Practitioner Training Certification. You will find common threads of experience, knowledge, and transformation from this and the other three MUSEA Intentional Creativity® certification training programs (Red Thread, Color of Woman, and Motherboard). We hope these shares from our other certification training programs will provide you with an idea of the types of experiences others had while training to be an Intentional Creativity Guide, Teacher, or Coach.

"Intentional Creativity® assisted me to connect more fully with my sacred, loving soul center. My muse is now active and guides me with her playful and fun energy. Additionally, it has prepared me to teach my first Intentional Creativity® class on my own and it turned out so wonderfully. The entire experience, and especially this piece have taught me to: Know you are scared, loved, and precious, I want you to shine like the stars you were created from."
~ Helen Litwiler


"It's life-changing. So much more than what I expected in shared knowledge and pure experience. Make more time in your schedule that you think you need and go all in!"
~ Mara
Belzer


"This is probably one of the best courses I have ever done! You learn amazing skills to paint for yourself, to tap into your own information, and to go out share, and teach others. You get all the support you need and more."
~ Rose Donaghy


"Instead of wasting time on worry, grief, and buried emotion I now spend time creating a beautiful new journey for myself and others. Thank you Motherboard for this amazing healing and transformation that has taken place in my life."
~ Judith Campanaro


"I would say it is worth every minute that you spend doing this training. Your life will change. YOU will understand a talis-woman that will show in the physical what we so often forget. IT will draw you closer to who you are and closer to those you want to be around."
~ Rev. Karen Thompson


"It is an investment in yourself and your business... one I found worth it! This is the kind of training I wanted when I went for my master's in counseling. I feel like many of the gaps were filled in. Thank you!"
~ Rachél Payne
