Intentional Creativity Faculty

The Intentional Creativity Guild is made up of women who have done their own work, completed the Color of Woman Intentional Creativity teacher training, and are committed to bringing this work to their communities. The faculty and staff of MOTHERBOARD : Intentional Creativity Method Coaching Certification are drawn from the Guild membership.

The GUILD is a community of graduates in organic inquiry together about our work, both personally and professionally. It is a circle which creates a crucible for our wisdom, success, resources, collaborations, movement and potential. The focus of our guild is to gather around creating and supporting intentional creatives, women creatives.
