As you go through this page, you will find plenty of videos with Shiloh Sophia about the Archeo-Futura Legend experience. If you want a fast track to know whether Legend is right for you, watch these videos with the volume UP!
This first video is about Identity as a Choice and how this is our very first Legend open to all genders - the whole family can join in!
Imagine creating your own hand-painted archetypal presence vs making some AI image. You get to sculpt, color and tell the story of your own Identity.
Andrew, our guest, is part of an exciting discovery regarding our ancient artist ancestors and the information they were carrying over 17000 years ago. Each of us will be painting in relationship to the earth, and stars and finding our place in story and creation.
"A transformational self-initiation that every one should experience in their lifetime." ~ L.S.
Legend 2022 Clan Cura Painting by Shiloh Sophia - The Art Matriarch
"This journey is for those who no longer want to hide what they know.
And for those who have been practicing for a while that wants to see what they know expressed in full-color form. The painting you create will be a real-time artifact, a record of what your futuristic archetype wishes to reveal to you at THIS point in your journey.
Intentional Creativity can take the invisible world and make it visible, from there we draw insight, and information and can adjust and calibrate. Far from being a mental process, this process is somatic, sensual, and filled with life force prowess."
"A major life-shifting event that has the power to change how you see everything in your life." ~ J.L.
What is identity anyway? Does anyone really know?
I mean, who are you REALLY? Our 2023 Legend theme is about the emergent being that you are, and how we all have these qualities of the invisible inner self (who we are as a soul) and the visible self (who we are out in the world).
These two worlds are often fragmented, but what happens when your inner narrator brings coherency to both of these worlds through art and writing?
Your story is yours to tell. The question is will you tell it and how? Claiming your archetypal presence and working with that energy to make up your own identity is the core of what we teach. You get to choose a fresh relationship with your identity and release the default settings, old patterns, and stories that weigh on you. Let's make them alive again by painting your Archeo-Futura Archetype and writing the story you want to tell.
Andrew Johnstone is our Guest Teacher for Legend. He is a dear friend and chosen family member who Shiloh's husband Jonathan has known for many years.
Andrew is an astronomer, muralist, and educator with a gift of painting realistically and visionary, a combination that's hard to come by.
He will be sharing his awesome techniques with us as we paint the surface of a cave wall, as well as the cosmos, and dive deeper into skillset.

If you had the opportunity to shake things up, hit the reset button, and live a life aligned with who you are at a soul level, would you want to wait? If anything, these past few years have taught us that time is precious and life can change without notice. The right to self-expression is available to all of us. We just have to claim it for ourselves.
The Cosmic Cowgirls have been serving up Legendary Lives since 2008 with thousands taking the course. So for us, it feels life-altering and life-saving. Even those who have already taken LEGEND do it annually to refresh their deepest relationship, with themselves.
Every year students from around the world join us for an EPIC Painting Journey, a dive into the great mystery that happens when you wield the brush and the pen. What you create will have a huge impact, expanding your mind, heart, and ability to express your Legend Archetype within your daily life.
When you ACTIVATE your Archeo Futura, your path to a chosen personal revelation is at your fingertips. When you experience designing your own LEGEND you will have access to the thing we all desire - ACCESS TO YOUR OWN VOICE. As well as distinctions about what the voice is not, and how to recognize intruders in your psychic space and repair your own field.
Every Legend offers a deeper storyline of work that is part of the soul development process. For Archeo Futura, the deeper work is a reckoning and reconciliation about how we live our lives out there with others, in our relationships, our business, our health and how that may be distinct from the 'self' we actually are as a soul.
The reckoning comes at a certain point when we know we have to do the work of reconciling because when we are living our lives in a way that is incoherent with the self and soul we are. Let's no longer compromise, and instead, heal the fragmentation. Listen to your own voice above and beyond other external voices to share your TRUE STORY that wants to be told...
LEGEND 2020, MYSTIC by Shiloh Sophia
"A ritualistic journey into the heart of the feminine story that reveals the hidden truths I have been seeking." - K.P.
Are you willing to go to the depths of your story?
What story do our ancient artist ancestors want us to know?
What if there is an ancient access and what if I told you I found the key?
Where will your story take you? No one will be sure but we are all showing up for the ride. Each of us is here to find our own form. Who are we and what are we doing here? What world will you create with your brush, pen, and community?
Finding your place in space is a birthright, journey, and invitation to ask yourself what is your identity. Do you know? Do you care? Will you shape it? Are you open to discovering your true colors?
What is the image of the future held within your heart? Let's find out together, shall we? Come to the adventure!
This introductory yet life-changing course is rooted in myth-making, image-making, causative and curative consciousness all applied through the framework of Intentional Creativity®.
LEGEND is designed for absolute beginners to experience a journey that will influence how every person sees themselves, their body, their story, and their archetype.
My name is Shiloh Sophia. I am a Teacher, Curator and have been teaching this class every year since I was 38 years old, it is that important to me and my body of work.
This annual event is my offering to the world and one of the most sacred gifts I know about. I learned it from my own mothers and now I share it with you and you can share it with others.
I see it as... If you don't tell your own story at this point in your life, someone else will do it for you. They already have been and will continue to do so until you say - NO MORE. This is my story to tell.
The LEGEND course shows you HOW to BECOME at cause for your own story.
You may wonder, "Just what kind of an online course could create this experience for me?" Good question.
We have created this entire website so you can explore it for yourself. Many are scared to try it because they feel they don't have what it takes. Yet we are telling you the reality right here:
Everyone deserves access to painting, storytelling, and a circle of supportive people to guide you along the path and keep you company.
Shiloh Sophia is the visionary founder of MUSEA: Intentional Creativity Museum and COSMIC COWGIRLS and THE LEGEND COURSE. She has a Museum and School called MUSEA, as well as a Gallery called Musette - both in Sonoma California. We bring education to our students both virtually and in person!
"I was new to painting, only having dabbled before, so it was a stretch and I could not believe what I was able to create." B.Y.
To create this experience we use an approach to art-making called Intentional Creativity®. Basically, it means you make what you make with love and intention - but it becomes magical as you begin to explore.
During Legend, you will be able to paint a painting and write a story through intuition and a guided process that will knock your socks off!! Really, you won't believe your eyes and ears because you will amaze yourself. Consider this a chance to be amazing and daring in a brand new way.
Scary and risky? Yes.
Worth it? EVERY TIME.
Legend is our MOST POPULAR signature painting course. Our students take it over and over again because each year the theme changes and you change too! What will your brush discover as it meets the canvas?
Imagine creating a beautiful artist space for yourself - even if it's in your living room or bedroom - a dedicated place to set up your supplies and have some alone time with the Muse!
Don't worry if you are too busy because this course is designed to accommodate your schedule with a lot of support from our staff. You will have access to ~ 10+ hours of video over the 5 weeks plus the option to connect with students. If you can block 4 hours a week for your creative practice, that's all you need! Legend is an invitation to change how you show up for what matters to you.
All the images and words you need are already inside. We will be here with the PATHWAY to find them. The access is granted through outrageous acts of daring - yes - creativity. We will show you how!
"We must move into the future, creating it as we go. We have been placed on the edge of history too long now. We have always been here." Painting and quote by Shiloh's mentor, Sue Hoya Sellars
"Legend brings many aspects of healing together in a way that nothing else has. Now I know what to do to transform my pain" A.L.
Great change, in life, doesn't happen through thinking about it over and over. Changing things like your worldview, frame of mind, outlook on life takes focus. To reduce stress levels, or to transform challenges into potentials requires that we show up. The greatest power many of us experience is being the author of our own future. By claiming the authority and tools to navigate our story and image, we move into co-creative power and gain access to intuition. This isn't about talent or knowing how to paint. Intentional Creativity® invites you to the hidden world within. What a wondrous world awaits for you to enter. You are invited. You will never regret spending this kind of time on WHO YOU ARE. You deserve it. Truly.
"One of the highlights of my life" Legend Student

“Thank you, Shiloh Sophia! Your teachings changed my life many times in the last 9 years. I've done 3 Legends and signed up for VIVID cause I'm ready for the next shift. The last Legend Oracle and Ally was mind-blowing! Many symbols I painted in 2019 for Legend I saw happened in 2020 - I am the Oracle! My consciousness (sub and un- consciousness) already knew what was coming. This experience made me see myself in a new way. Thank you again!"

"Legend urged me to let go of control. I discovered feelings that I didn't know existed in me. I allowed myself to be. And I am still in the process of letting..."
Painting: Bride of Love
"Legend was wonderful and well-timed. I delved into the past, received visions of the future, and recorded it in the present. I'm eager to explore deeper and create more. Every woman should have this experience of developing a visual voice. It's not about your skills, those can be developed. It's about opening up to the voices of your higher selves in all their incarnations."
