Over ten years ago I remember dreaming up a sacred sisterhood for women on my knees in prayer, and the exact moment the words ‘Red Madonna’ came to me and how it felt in my body and heart.
Never could I possibly imagine how much the Red Madonna was needed in the hearts of so many and what an incredible journey this would be…
Today, our global community is invited to the In Her Embrace Museum Show to witness incredible paintings created by our students in honor of the Blessed Mother, Divine Feminine and Tree of Life in our lives. Let’s celebrate the Mama of Mamas!

“The Red Madonna Sisterhood became one of the treasures in my life. I experience love, beauty, depth, wisdom, knowledge and sharing with a deep sense of acceptance. For me it is like a place by the fire, where we gather to share our stories, our worries, our joy wrapping it in prayers and psalms of devotion to the divine, to the Mother – whatever this might mean to each woman. I am very grateful for this gift in my life, guided by women of a heart of wisdom and compassionate love.”

A message from MUSEA Collective
We are honored to bring you the In Her Embrace Group Exhibit featuring artwork from students of the Red Madonna Sisterhood over a span of ten years!
This beloved community, founded by Shiloh Sophia and her mother, Caron McCloud, is a virtual sanctuary for celebration, creativity, and self-expression framed through the Sacred Feminine Archetype.
The framework of, “The Red Madonna,” is an archetypal approach to the Divine Feminine that was originally inspired by the Virgin Guadalupe who figured largely in the art and life of Shiloh Sophia. She describes it as, “The Red Madonna is She Who Appears in your Heart and on your Path”…
Love Called My Name by Shiloh Sophia, 2013
The Divine Mother in her many forms has appeared all over the world for tens of thousands of years and the practices within the Red Madonna community are intended for exploring sacred connection, personal awakening, and transformation.

In this beloved community, we create a heart-centered opening to the healing wisdom of the Divine Feminine. Group members share in common devotional practices such as prayer, poetry, painting, sabbath ritual, circle, and tracking of the phases of the moon through the delivery of Intentional Creativity teachings.
This group has gathered every moon since December 2011 focusing on different themes and frameworks. The cycle for each painting lasts 13 moons and then students can complete or continue into the following year. Many students continue year after year as they are so devoted to the community and their own practice.
Special attention has also been given to cherishing, embodying, and honoring the elders of the sisterhood. Our 2022 theme is the Forest of Grandmothers, and as part of the show, you’ll have the opportunity to be informed of when our next Red Madonna painting cycle opens for enrollment.
We look forward to having you as our guest at the museum show and invite you to reserve your complimentary ticket here. This event is open to the public, and we encourage you to invite your friends, family, and community along for a date at the museum!
