A Red Madonna Retreat

Guided by Shiloh Sophia


Havi Mandell & Emily Grieves & Caron McCloud

Gathering with women is soul medicine...
you are invited!

Join Shiloh Sophia and the Red Madonna sisterhood for a powerful experience of connection with the Sacred Feminine in her form as WISDOM SOPHIA. 

Our teachers will weave stories 
Mary Magdalene, Mother Eve, Blessed Mama Mary, Guadalupe, Shekinah and the feminine Tree of Life as it relates to feminine wisdom. 

 You will use the colorful threads of the teachings to weave and paint an icon of HER for YOU. Through prayer, paint, poetry and possibility we will engage in a feminine circle of creation. 

We will begin with the elements in the circle of creation and allow our Red Madonna to emerge from the earth and stars on our canvas. This process will be a painting ritual including Holy Water from Madonna's around the the world and sacred sites!

RSVP Sonoma $295 or 3 payments of $100

Women Gathering in Circle for Ceremony in Sonoma

Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Cherish her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you. She will give you a garland to grace your head and present you with a glorious crown.

~ Proverbs 4:5-9

Bringing Wisdom’s Table to Life!

Celebrating Empowered Presence and Sisterhood

The moment for the feast is here, a sumptuous gathering of wisdom, laughter, creativity, and delicious and incomparable heart and soul nourishment that is conjured when powerful women embodying their Divine Essence out loud gather intentionally and with full presence at The Table.

Do you see that beautiful place at the Table meant just for you, waiting for you?

Women know in their bones, in the ancestral wisdom of wise women from every tradition, the powerful alchemy of gathering together in sisterhood at the Table to weave artistry, stories, support, laughter, and tasty wisdom morsels into an incomparable energy of transformation and love. And to gather at the Ancient Grove in Sonoma's 17 Redwood Trees.

All years of Red Madonna are invited!

Join in celebration and sisterhood!

Whether you attend in person or online, you will feel the connection of sisterhood. We will include and honor you in Red Thread Circle, and you will be invited to share and connect in our private Red Thread Cafe Classroom.

Bask in the beauty of sisterhood 
and connection

About Your Guides

Shiloh Sophia lives life as a great adventure narrated by the creative fire of her Muse! She has dedicated her life to the belief that self-expression is a basic human right and shares her message with thousands around the world through her paintings, poetry, and teachings. She leads a global movement of revolutionary education focused in Intentional Creativity®, as offered in the Color of Woman Teacher Training. She co-founded a Studio and Museum, called MUSEA, in Sonoma, California, with her husband Jonathan. Most mornings, she can be found having tea with her Muse, pouring over quantum physics, philosophy, and sacred texts in the Red Thread Cafe. www.schoolofintentionalcreativity.org

Emily Grieves received a BFA degree in art from the University of Montana in 1993, followed by study of art history in Berlin, Germany, as a Fulbright scholar. 

She lived in San Francisco, California, for 10 years where she began exploring symbolism, mythology, and ritual in her artwork, drawing inspiration from the celebrations and mysteries of life. She has been a practitioner of shamanic healing and hands-on energy work since 1997. 

As of 2004, she makes her home in Teotihuacan, Mexico, where she has painted murals at the Dreaming House spiritual retreat center and has created a body of artwork influenced by the cosmological imagery left in the ancient pyramids and by her relationship with her Muse and the Divine Feminine. 

In 2014, she opened her studio Taller de Arte El Refugio, in Teotihuacan. Emily is a certified Intentional Creativity Teacher in the Color of Woman Method and a member of the Intentional Creativity Guild. www.EmilyKGrievesArt.com

Caron McCloud is a writer, artist, designer, teacher, and entrepreneur. She is an award winning performing poet, and has been the poetry teacher for Leading a Legendary Life, Color of Woman, and Red Madonna. She has over a dozen chap books to her credit, and a book, Rachel's Bag, In Search of the Qabalah of Our Mothers, (with cover, illustrations and introduction by her daughter, Shiloh McCloud), which examines the radical actions of Old Testament women. She is currently in the editing process for a collection of her poetry, Neon-Cuneiform, and is completing a book on Qabalah, Living the Tree of Life. Now living in Port Townsend, Washington, Caron was born in Oakland, California, spent most of her life in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she had art galleries; and, in partnership with her mother, Eden McCloud, founded a women's clothing design and manufacturing company. Experience in these businesses led to teaching and public speaking. She has a son, two daughters, three granddaughters, and five great grandsons.

About Havi Mandell:  

When I was very young, my family called me “la philosophe” (the philosopher), because I have always been a deep see diver...a visionary and empath seeking to illuminate essences. I have always loved the kabbalistic stories of Divine Shards created when Divine Light poured in to create the world. The Light was so immense that it shattered the receiving vessels, and our role is to reveal these hidden sacred sparks in those shards that fill creation through acts of loving-kindness and service to the Divine. My art and healing work are my service and flow from my heart.

My intention is that my art will be a gateway, an alchemical altar, that awakens people to liberate the beauty within and around them.

I often paint the Sacred Feminine and all She represents.

I paint and teach using Intentional Creativity®, a process I learned from Maestra Shiloh Sophia McCloud. It weaves together prayer, symbolism, and layers of energetic and creative processes, opening to the transformative power of creativity. I have been teaching Intentional Creativity® online to hundreds of wonderful women over the past seven years and each experience has been truly magical. My art has been exhibited in a number of juried shows in Las Vegas and was part of two presentations at the United Nations. I have created a physical gallery and studio of the soul, Growthspring Healing & Creative Arts, in the Arts District of Las Vegas. It is a space for art, healing, therapy, retreats, coaching, and joy. www.havimandell.com
