I speak the truth when I tell you this. When creativity comes through like a thunder bolt and shakes you to your core, there is no mistaking it for something else. Your heart beats, your feet go cold, your head whistles with a big wind coming through. It can be hard to say no,
even if you want to.
As the information comes in, you may wonder if you are a bit mad perhaps, but no matter, just pick up your tool of choice and begin to tell your story. Dance it, paint it, plant it, sing the thunder cloud through the opening your soul provides and see what shows up. Tell the story of what shows up in the circles you gather around you….
The art you make is the artifact of the happening,
the story that is yours to tell.
~ Shiloh Sophia
Today I have taken a big leap. I have decided to release the Dates and Time zones for the 500 Year Circle I told you about. I feel scared. I feel giddy. I feel slightly ill. I feel reluctant. Yet I know I have to.
You can listen or read all about it. Today is the anniversary of my mother Caron moving into her future – so I wanted to honor the anniversary today by sharing this with you.
If I could only choose ONE THING to do with my life force on behalf of others, this is it.
This is the releasing of my Great Work in the form of 8 Ceremonies.
If you are actively in a Certification program with me, please choose a scholarship. If you want to hang out with me and support the ministry as it unfolds, then you can offer a subscription tithing. Come see.

Invitation to a 500 Year Circle Without End
March 29, 2023
You are invited to The Cura Council, A Qauntum Commons through 8 Ceremonial Gatherings for 500 years. It’s me, Shiloh Sophia.Time is precious and it seems uncertainty is the way we are living our lives. Yet I have the power to create certainty for the village I serve, to offer time and teachings to ‘mend the sacred hoop’, and so I am. I must answer the call.
When I ask myself what my Great Work in the world is, and what I could create that would be blessing, this is the vision arose. I have been holding the space for a 100 year circle for 20 years, but the sacred assignment has changed to 500 years, it is inclusive of all genders and basically is an ancient and futuristic creative spiritual path for seekers. You might think of us as agnostic mystics with a wild streak that crave an experience of the sacred through emobodiment.
I have a background as a Reverend, Artist, Storyteller, Educator, and Futurist, so if you put all those together it weaves into this word: Ceremony. So I am initiating 8 ceremonial gatherings based on the wheel of the year for 500 years virtually. I host 12 in person gatherings per year in Sonoma, and they are the first Thursday of each month. We will have one in person per year in November. And I hope we will form a true Council of Wise and Wild ones to have ceremony, celebration and conversation.The idea of Cura, is a person who cares for the soul of the village, one who cares, is curative in nature and is a curator. At MUSEA University when a Cura becomes fully engaged in the guardianship of their Sacred and Great Work in the world, they become a Curate.To become a part of The Cura Council, subscriptions are offered by scholarship for those who choose, and by tithe for those who choose. No one who wants to come will be excluded – as long as you come with respect, open eyes and an open heart ready for consciousness raising.
I have been in circle since I was 5 years old and I am here to gather us. My mother Caron had a vision that I would call this kind of circle right before she walked into her future. Today is the 2nd year anniversary of her walking on, and here I am, Mama. I did it. I opened the doors.
The vision expanded from 100 years to 500 years on the day of Carmen Baraka’s walking on. Yes, I feel guided by the internal soul prompting of my Ancestors. You don’t just decide to call a 500 year circle on your own, it’s too much work and it’s too big. You need help. I am being helped and when you join – you are affirming the vision of our need to gather in sacred containers throughout time.I used to joke with Carmen Baraka, Spirit Warrior, (Native American Elder in our community) “Do I have a sign on my back that says, Ancestors, pick me” She said: “Yes you do, but not because you are special, but because everyone else said no, which makes you special and so it is yours to do, no one else is going to do it, baby” So here I am, honoring the call of the Ancestors, the Elders, The Art Matriarchs of our community of MUSEA and Cosmic Cowgirls.I know it seems like I do a lot and I do. Yet I am beginning to slow things down a bit so I can focus on what matters most to me and the gifts I have to bring. I am carrying medicine that feels essential for the great unfolding, my mom taught me to know that I matter, and that I am also here to remind you, that you matter.
Over the next 6 months you will see less offerings from me, and less of me in less places, so I can focus on these ceremonies, our local village, our global virtual village and our Care for Creation Curriculum starting on Solstice in June 6/21, it’s called Origins. Sometimes we have to speed up to slow down – so you may feel that right now in the field as you learn about The Cura Council, but it will be changing, and I am notifying you of this change. My entire Soul and body is being put on awareness that change is coming.
You know how some people have a bucket list – well the Cura Council isn’t my bucket list – this is the fulfillment of as sacred assignment I agreed to a very very long time ago. And yes, if just one thing remained upon my own passing, let it be this circle. May this be a blessing to all. May I live long enough to see it through, and pass on the teachings I am carrying.
May you, along with me send a blessing out to all beings.
All. Beings.Love to each of one of you,
Curate Shiloh Sophia
p.s. I am tired and delirious with landing the details and the technology of this effort. So forgive typos and I will be fixing things up as we go along.
The dates on the wheel of the year for 500 years are:
12/21, 2/1, 3/21, 5/1, 6/21, 8/1, 9/21, 11/1
