13 Moon Virtual Sanctuary for Women

Registration Open through the full moon, April 8

Upon registration receive immediate access to our private community Sanctuary and meet the women you will be in sisterhood with this year!

An Intentional Community working through a Sacred Feminine Archetype we call "The Red Madonna"  

The Red Madonna is She who appears in your heart and on your path. We explore Her and Creation through devoted common practices including Prayer, Poetry, Painting and Passion as well as Rest and Ritual.  

We have gathered every moon since December 2011 focused on different themes and frameworks. Our theme, 'Psalms for Creation' is a contemplative creative practice honoring and exploring creation and our co-creative capacity here. Our invitation is to find a 'new tempo' for our lives which includes creativity, contemplation, connection and ceremony through...

* The wheel of the elements, earth, air, fire, water & ether/ breath * Honoring the cycles of the moon, equinoxes and solstices * The practice of Sabbath, times for rest, creation and prayer * Developing a writing practice of your own Psalms for Creation through prayer poems * Living into the beautiful reality of the Red Thread of Quantum Connection * Painting as much or as little as you like! 5 Major paintings are offered! * Studying gospels according to the feminine from the Church of the Scarlet Thread  

In musical terminology, tempo ("time" in Italian) is the speed or pace of a given piece of music. We are letting tempo become the pace of peace for us.  

Two Levels of Membership for Psalms for Creation  

The basic Red Madonna Membership includes monthly calls and tons of goodness and support from the community directed by Dr. Havi Mandell. As well as Psalms for Creation contemplative painting process and Church of the Scarlet Thread Gospel Salons with Shiloh Sophia. More details are further down the page ($42).  

Madonna Certificate Level GOLD Red Madonna Membership includes all of what is included in the basic Membership and has the Heart of Gold - Medicine Wheel of the Madonna 5 Archetypes. This is for those who really want to do a pilgrimage with Intentional Creativity and the sacred. A devoted practice and time at the easel and building altars!  

In Red Madonna there are always lots of offerings, but you go at your own pace and choose your level of participation.

With Dr. Havi Mandell 

Community Teachings and Support from Mary Ann Matthys, Emily Grieves, Caron McCloud & Susan Daniels 

The Red Madonna Sisterhood is a Spiritual Creative Path of Devotion. Gather with women throughout the world to celebrate, explore and let this 'virtual sanctuary' become a place to pray and create. Together we work with the sacred power inherent in Intentional Creativity when we focus it towards intimacy with the Divine.

Where paths meet She takes Her stand ~ Proverbs

Caron, Shiloh, Susan, Emily and Havi, December 2019 Red Madonna Gathering

Message from Dr. Havi Mandell, Red Madonna Director about her New Moon offering in Psalms of Creation

I invite you to join us in intentionally and gratefully tending and immersing in sacred animistic connection and intimacy with all the wonders of creation, great and small, opening in our own deep relationship with the Divine within us and vivifying all of life.  

We will journey into deep knowing, honoring, and embodying of the five elements through meditations, ceremonies, intentional creativity and daily practices and honor the cycles of the moons, the seasons, our inner rhythms, and the subtle choreography of our dance with the earth.

We will be calling upon your sacred poet within to invoke and write sacred psalms, love songs, to the Beloved as they rise up in our journey. And, as tenders of this Sacred Garden of Earth, we will hold space and gather in prayer, sisterhood, and meditation and will meaningfully commit to small intentionally creative acts of healing for the elements and the planet.  

Our Lady of the Flowering Earth - as taught in Heart of Gold

Message from Shiloh Sophia, Red Madonna Founder  

For my offerings there are three things.

1. Church of the Scarlet Thread - live video Gospel study and salon conversations for those interested in Christ and the feminine through Mother Mary, Magdalene and Sophia 2. Psalms for Creation - Painting for the Contemplative Mystic - A process focused around the wheel/compass/red egg/medicine wheel symbology - as well as writing a Psalm. Each one will reveal a teaching within Intentional Creativity. This will be different from others years because it will not be focused on the face or body. Write your Psalm of Creation! 3. Heart of Gold - The Medicine Wheel of the Madonna Teachings. A full year of powerful teachings that is my body of work regarding the sacred feminine. (Recorded in 2014)  

Everything is recorded so you can watch on your own time.  

For my Church of the Scarlet Thread gatherings, here are some of the things I am thinking of...  

Receive Fresh Agreement teachings on the Gospel in a way you may never have heard before. What may be hidden in the language?  

Explore the Revolution of Jesus' ministry to the woman clothed with the Sun in Revelation 12. Why has it all been so hidden?  

Yeshua taught and often used the elements. The Gospel mentions earth, air, fire, water. Why doesn't this translate into our activism and care for the earth? 

For the higher level membership paint the archetypes through earth, air, fire and water with the Madonna and the Quantum Christ. How would it feel to paint a mystical body of work? 

Heal your relationship with the Judeo-Christian framework and discover your own path to devotion through an expanded awareness.  

Design a potently creative spiritual practice on your terms. 

Establish a new intimacy, seeing the earth and all of creation as part of the mythic story of Jesus and Mary. 


The red thread is woven throughout the Bible and connects directly to the feminine and Her children. Yet there is so much more to the red thread than we ever imagined. It is HER garment, we are woven within it. Find your piece of the red thread in a powerful new way through sisterhood and connection. 

The feminine in scripture has much to teach us through Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene and Sophia Maria - are you ready to listen to the voice of wisdom and find your own?  

Yeshua/Jesus was a revolutionary and we missed it. Let's find it. Let's enter the Beautiful Gate for ourselves and discover the hidden connection many of us have been seeking.  

Every single relationship Yeshua had with women was revolutionary and radical. The scriptures show us this and you can find it right in the text. But it hasn't been taught this way. Not really. He broke the taboos, those culturally embedded frameworks that kept women trapped in secondary positions. After His teachings, that way of treating women as less than men should be no more. 

What if it is against the teachings of Yeshua for the churches to continue to treat women as if they are not as significant as the men?

Psalms of Creation A Painting Process for the Contemplative Mystic with Intentional Creativity Teachings Guided Shiloh Sophia over 13 Moons 

The Psalms of Creation Painting is designed to be a painted prayer process to cultivate well being and inner knowing. We will be focused on the symbol of the compass/Celtic Cross/Red egg/Medicine Wheel shape in our work as well as work with the elements. (We will not be painting a face as primary to this image)

The works on this page are the inspiration from Carl Jung, Hildegard and the Icon of the Magdalene with the Red Egg and as teacher. We will be accessing and designing a very deeply symbolic image for ourselves in connection with creation, and the discovery of our own medicine teachings. 

Each painting session will include 13 of the 42 Intentional Creativity® teachings as prompts for painting.

These paintings will also serve as places we can put our grief, transitions, worries, as well as our joys and celebrations. Lots of dots and lines and symbol making. We will also be writing a Psalm of Creation, each full moon you will write a part of your Psalm. These sessions will be slow, restful and truly contemplative in nature, intended to open us to inner peace and inner knowing.

The videos will be between half an hour to an hour and you can plan on about two hour per full moon for your painting process. For those returning to Red Madonna, these will not be as in depth or as long as other processes. This is less of a how to and more of an guided inquiry into your own mystical nature.  

Q and A about the Offering  

What happens each month? 

.::.13 Moons : Each month you will work through Painting and Teachings with Shiloh Sophia and Meditations and Teachings with Havi.  

.::.13 Red Thread Circles : We gather for Meditation Prayer Circles via zoom Guided by Dr. Havi and other members of our Leadership for one hour.

How much time should I devote?  

.::. 13 Days of Devotion : You are invited to book 13 days to experience a Sabbath - we will teach you more about this sacred practice. Booking these days will create the optimal experience in divining a new tempo for your life. These days are great for painting, studying, praying and being with your sacred path. From a time perspective, if you did devote one day a month, that would be enough time to experience all of the content at the $42 level of membership. And of course, participation is up to you but we invite rigor with your schedule. 

What is the teaching on the gospel from Shiloh Sophia?  

The Church of the Scarlet Thread is FRESH material from our Founder Shiloh Sophia offered via Zoom video calls. Each service will feature Gospel reading and discussion. This is ideal for those seeking to maintain a relationship or open to a new relationship with Christ, Mother Mary and Mary Magdalene. This is also a great source of healing as we learn more about what the Gospel actually says. Study time and prayer time is needed for this level. She will be teaching from the Fresh Agreement interpretation.  

How much more time for the Heart of Gold Membership level? 

 .::. If you choose to get the Certificate for the Heart of Gold - Medicine Wheel of the Madonna video teachings of the 5 Archetypes, you will need to add an additional half day per week to complete. But then this is what it is all about - your practice.

To get a Certificate what do I need to do? 

Complete all five paintings by June of 2021, upload your images and writings. Shiloh Sophia will sign and mail you a Certificate of Completion.  

What is the Red Book? 

Each Red Madonna Member is invited to create a book of Psalms and images from their experience. We will share with you ways to work on this during our time together. Imagine working together for a year and having a book of your paintings and poetry and psalms at the end? How wonderful would that be? If you were in past years of Red Madonna you could even include work from other years.

What if I have already done the Heart of Gold Paintings? 

You can do them again, or revisit if you haven't completed them before. OR you also have the option of another yearlong painting process from our archives. To discuss this please email shilohsophia@musea.org 

Our Common Red Threads by Shiloh Sophia  

The Red Thread is a sign of connection. A reminder that we are already connected. A symbol of protection. A gift of blessing. The color of life. The Red Thread is a legendary Talisman throughout the world with different meanings of the sacred, of destiny and taboo, which makes it a dynamic symbol that wild women love!  

The Red Thread is the hem of the garment of the Great Dancing Lady Our first red thread is the umbilical cord to our very own mother, of life force in the womb, our red room. The Red Tent from times of old that women gather in to rest and tell stories during their moon cycles. Red, the color of the thread the Blessed Mother was using to weave the veil of the temple, the red gateway to the holy of holies. A place forbidden to women that has a gateway woven by women’s hands.  

Red! The color of desire, sex, passion, romance, devotion, the red velvet box for wedding rings. Red. A color used symbolically in stories, like the sturdy red thread from Little Red Riding Hood’s coat, with which she saved her life. The red thread the fates are spinning, the color of memory the red rubedo in the final stage of the magnum opus in alchemy, and the cover of Jung’s Red Book and the Libre Vermell of the Black Madonna with the songs of pilgrims for singing and dancing The red roses associated with the Guadalupe, Magdalene and Mother Mary  

The Red Thread tied around the expectant mother’s wrist, and the women in her life who are supporting her. The Lover’s bond at hand-fasting with that red satin ribbon. The red thread wrapped around Mother Rachel’s Tomb. Red, the color of thread women in positions of power wear throughout history. The color of royalty, the sacred spaces and the red carpet rolled out on special occasions for special guest.  

The color of the forbidden fruits, the apple, the pomegranate, chilli and the deliciousness of cherries and strawberries. Red, the color of the thread Ariadne gives to the warrior, along with a sword to navigate the heart of the labyrinth. Some say that the words 'web' and 'email thread; come from that story of from that spool of the wise Greek princess.  

Many Asian traditions say that those who are supposed to meet are connected by an invisible red thread since before birth! That it may stretch or tangle but will not break - it will lead you until you are face to face with that person.  

The red thread can be the symbol of quantum connection when we say, I am sending you my love, representing energy moving across space and time. This the red thread we connect with in our Intentional Creativity Circles.  

The fiery core of our star, our sun, our heat, our life, red. Red, the color of our blood, the red from the iron of exploding stars from billions of years ago. If you need to feel our connection you can just tug on the red thread and imagine we are there with you, and we are.  

In our community we have legends of the Red Thread, that we feel make a life move beyond just a story into a legendary life -  

Dear One You are already connected, You are called to this circle, You have your own unique piece, You are only responsible for our own piece, and You, are not alone. We bear witness to each other’s red threads. Let us spin a red thread of story throughout our lives, finding a common red thread woven between us.
