Celebrating the Members of Our Intentional Creativity Team

WIP from Red Madonna: Wisdom’s Table

I want to celebrate a few members of our 2018 Intentional Creativity team!

Thank you especially to Tania Magennis for her incredible tending of this environment, truly a blessing! And gratitude for Sarah Mardell, Hobby Parent, Jonathan McCloud from the Intentional Creativity Guild and Foundation (501c3) and Annette Wagner, Tina Greene, Mary MacDonald and Jenafer Owen of Cosmic Cowgirls, LLC. This is the team working with us to curate both this space, our communities and the Red Thread Connect calls.

These projects take considerable investment in time, resources, finances and focus. That we are able to offer these services for no cost to our beloved guests of the Red Thread is an honor and a pleasure. The above list are the people who made it happen this year and who were on staff. 💓 www.redthreadconnect.us

Thank you to every single Intentional Creativity Guild teacher, who once a week volunteered and womaned the Red Thread Cafe classroom to provide encouragement, art doctoring, guidance and support. Their presence is what continues to make this space what it is, and how it feels – even when we aren’t on the page here, we FEEL the reality of the red thread and the connection. And thank you to those of you who volunteered and taught on the Red Thread Connect calls, our 2019 calls are shaping up!

As a community, we offered tens of thousands of scholarships in 2018 in our Intentional Creativity trainings, as well as free offerings to many thousands, many times. We also put close to 100K back into the community through independent work for women entrepreneurs who are part of our IC Guild community.

When you join us for our paid offerings, which many of you have, you contribute to providing work for others, as well as making our free offerings possible. Thank you and yahooooooo to our Intentional Creativity student participants in 2018! At whatever level you played, we are so grateful you ‘love’ this work as much as we do. That you share your time and resources here. We know you have many choices and we are very blessed to share this space with such an incredible circle of women worldwide.

You can find all of your upcoming curriculum for Winter 2019 here www.cosmiccowgirls.com – the next courses starting in January if you want to hop on board are LEGEND: The Cosmic Cowgirls Course and HEART of GOLD : Medicine Wheel of the Madonna and the Quantum Christ. In February we have an in person Apothecary and online Dance of the Critic and the Muse.

A special shout out to Jassy Watson Earthist and Louis Reed with Gisela Pineiro, Jo Laurie and Tania McGinnis for their work with Red Thread and IC in Australia! We were able to visit many of our students there and host incredible programming. I love that they are continuing the work with hosting Color of Women events!

Our other community, Red Madonna, we are so grateful for Havi Brysk Mandell, Kayleen Asbo, Emily Grieves, Susan Daniel, Mary Ann Matthys, Wil Gafney and my mom Caron McCloud – they are blessing the sacred container for our virtual ‘church’ temple.

Big heart shout out to Mary McCrystal who taught the first Red Thread Guide with me – so that other women can learn to curate red thread space as well both online and in person.

And to so many others, of the Intentional Creativity Guild including Jeri, Jennifer Bowers, Nadya King, Sepha Nisbet, Leslie Nolan, Caryn McLaine, Phyllis Anne Taylor, Simone Oliver, Lavender Grace Cinnamon, Elizabeth Gibbons, Trish O’Malley, Jo Laurie, Semerit Strachan, Kerry Lee, Terre Cerridwyn Busse, Tammra Harrison, Sandy Green, and Mandisa Amber for their work on our teams this year.

There are more too! For Amy Ahlers for helping to steward my IC business teachings in Radiance. Amber Kuileimailani Bonnici of Woman Unleashed, and Heidi S. Moondancer of Come to the Fire and Catt Geller of Cosmic Smashbooking for their incredible work with culture and inspiration of Intentional Creativity to tens of thousands of women! This is good work, aren’t we so luck to have found one another on the red thread?

I also want to say a big YAHOO to Jessica Enevold Duncan, Kate Langlois, Grace Steenberg, Ilona Lantos, Asia Morgenthaler, Gisela Pineiro, Evelyne Verret, Uma Mulnick and Emily Grieves for launching their first online courses with the guidance of Jenafer Owen and Giddy Up, her class for Color of Woman Grads to bring their work into the world!

And always to Carmen Baraka, our Native teacher and elder who leads our community in ceremony with Buffalo Woman, Denise. We are so blessed to be in your company.

To my incredible husband and best friend, Jonathan McCloud – who rocks my world in all ways, always, who surprises me all the time with his intelligence, playfulness, bravery, love, innovation and feeds me so well!!!

There are many many more hands that go into the work of Intentional Creativity. I just wanted to honor these ones this year, for their love, devotion, patience, presence and especially their teachings.

And finally. To the women who made this possible.

Caron McCloud, my mother who taught me that creativity was essential and that I mattered, Eden McCloud, my grandmother who taught me creative writing and sewing and inspired us all with her art and innovation, Lenore Thomas Straus, Sue’s teacher, sculptor, poet, wood carver, illustrator, and Sue Hoya Sellars, Painter, this is our lineage of Intentional Creativity.

This is a beautiful and powerful culture of creativity. 

I wish to personally thank the Great Lady, who guides me in all that I do.

Thank you for reading and in so doing, taking the time to acknowledge the team with me. Sending you gratitude and blessings at the turning of the seasons and the year…

Signed with the light of the full moon, red paint and a red thread,

Your in creative soul,

Become an Intentional Creativity Teacher

A futuristic healing model has emerged.

A council has been called.

You are invited.

Color of Woman 2019 : Intentional Creativity Teaching Training

The training is available all online

11 spaces are open as of today

Optional gatherings in California and Australia

This will be the 9th year of the Intentional Creativity Training®
with currently over 250 teachers around the world.

Intrigued? Keep reading.

“Circle of Friends” Escalante Caves, Utah

Are you called to gather others in circle?

Do you long to share your gifts in a sacred container?

Have you already been doing your work,
but know there is something more?

How would it feel to have an offering so powerful
that lives change before your eyes?
And have a great time doing it?!

Guiding Intentional Creativity circles and experiences not only impacts the lives of those you serve, but YOU are transforming WHILE you lead. In a lot of healing modalities, the practitioner has to give give give and then there is little left for them. Sound familiar? Maybe you have already been experiencing this – have you been wondering : How can I do my work, do what I care about, make a living and not empty myself?

You are not alone in your desire for changing the way we work. In our innovative model – YOU do your work at the same time. You don’t put your life on hold while you work. Or take on the pain of others to transmute it. You also don’t need to be an expert to gather others, or have all your stuff in a perfect pile. You just have to feel the call and have a few tools.

What if what our world needs is authentic, wild, self expressed women guides?

Is that you?

Many of the traditional and cultural models of healing aren’t working for many of us anymore – where we sacrifice our well being for the good of the whole, or the individual. Many of us feel we are in need of the future of transformational change work that includes our personal self expression. Our community believes we have found it! Intentional Creativity is actually a revolutionary change in how women work with others in the field of healing, consciousness and transformation.

Those of us who work with others know that true healing, and any real answers are within each person. And of course, their own relationship with Source. So let’s get on with the innovative hybrid technologies that give those we work with direct access! Access to the place the hidden self resides. So that the client/student/beloved can do their own work. Many modalities are emerging at this time – this is the one that works with image, color, language, consciousness, intuition and self expression.

There is a riddle here however, because image and language are one of the ways the hidden self makes herself known. If those tools are not provided, too much remains closed in the mind – and not lived out in our lives.

Intentional Creativity isn’t just painting, although that is what we focus on in the training because it is such a direct access to our own information. Intentional Creativity is movement, song, pottery, cuisine, sculpting, jewelry, welding – all of the creative arts can be approached with this framework.

|f you are feeling called, or a stirring in your soul, come spend an hour or so having tea with me in a unique video interview.

Is 2019 your year?

Your Invitation & Application

A new archetype of healer is emerging. We are the emergent design of the future when we say yes to our soul work. We are calling teachers, leaders, healers, therapists, practitioners, priestesses, poets, artists, musicians and change agents from around the world to the table. We are inviting you to a training in which YOUR FOCUS is activating the work of your soul – while you learn to share this gift with other. Both/And

Some of us have a hard time justifying doing something for ourselves. Others of us are tired of just taking more training to help, but don’t get helped ourselves. This training is both/and. Save you, and through that, save the world that matters to you (if that is your jam).

You are invited with open arms, to this council of wild women emerging.

You don’t need this training to be a teacher or call others into circle. You have your own content, so why do the training? Perhaps you are called because you personally long for something for you : a cycle of time dedicated to your own breakthroughs and self discovery. Maybe you have been pouring out your cup and you need a refill of beauty to nourish your own creative flow. How would it feel to actually create a series of paintings that represent, in image and language, your soul work in the world? Can you see yourself journeying in a group of women doing sacred, powerful transformational work?

The majority of our students say that COLOR of WOMAN was one of THE most powerful experiences of their lives – that is was what they had been looking for all of their lives – and have finally found it. And one of the best parts of all, is that once you graduate and become an Intentional Creativity Teacher, our community continues together – a Global Guild of creatives who work together across the world serving through self expression and tools for transformation.

I hope you will consider joining us for the adventure of a lifetime….
