"A transformational self-initiation that every woman should experience in her lifetime." ~ Legend Student
Who is this for? Shiloh Sophia answers
"This journey is for women who know they have innate healing powers, magic, gifts and expressions.
For those who no longer want to hide what they know.
And for those who have been practicing for a while that want 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 healer 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, information and can adjust and callibrate. 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." ~ Legend Student
What is Clan Cura?
This is a made up term that came through to me in song. I have been journeying to request a new word, since 2020 that means healers of the ever-present future. Carriers of what is needed for our world now. With honor to ancient wisdom but a call to the futuristic healing arts based on where we are as a species. I have a right to use the word clan in this context because I descend from clans in Ukraine, Scandinavia and Ireland.
Clan Cura is a gathering of women who do healing work that care. A gathering of those who choose to embark on a journey to claim their healing gifts, next level. We begin, with the healer within. This isn't about hanging a shingle as a healer outside, but doing the inner work to bring your healing journey to the next level. And perhaps, ARRIVE at healed enough. When we are healed enough we can then go forward to offer our healing gifts to others - to those who are called.
Cura is an an ancient term connected with healing, curing, caring, being curative, compassion, culture close attention, treatment of those in need, and concerned. Connected with female folk healers, medicine woman, those skilled in the usage of plants for healing.
From Proto-Indo-European, "to heed". When referring to a person, a gaurdian, observer. The root of the word, curious. In some languages, feminine, daughter, and fem genitalia. Formative in the word, curate, to organize, design, designate and order into relative parts.
Widespread usage of the root, cur, cur and the various applications lend itself well the cause of a woman, assuming the mantle of healer within herself.
Here are just a few of the places that include the root cur and I am sure there are many more. With utmost respect, care for language, culture and practice, we engage in this quest to the archetype which is suited for these times, these women, these gifts.
Well, the Cosmic Cowgirls have been serving up Legendary Lives since 2008 with thousands of women taking the course. So for us, it feels life-altaring 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 weild the brush and the pen.
When you ACTIVATE your Inner Healer, your path to a chosen personal revation is at your fingertips - you are creating it as you are revealing it in real time.
When you experience designing your own LEGEND you will have access to the thing all women desire - ACCESS TO YOUR OWN VOICE. As well as distinctions about what the voice is not - how to recognize intruders in your psychic space and repair your own field.
What you create will have a huge impact, expanding your mind, heart and ability to express your healer archeype within, and in your daily life.
Anyone can paint and use painting as a portal to a deeper way of seeing. This isn't just for artists, but for all of us.

ABOUT THE LEGEND COURSE
This introductory yet life-changing class is rooted in myth-making, image-making, causitive 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 woman sees herself, her body, her story, and her 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 women of 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.
The way I see it is ... 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.
TheLEGEND 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 women are scared to try it because they think they don't have what it takes. Yet we are telling you the reality right here:
Everyone deserves to have access to painting, storytelling, and a circle of supportive women 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. Here she is painting outside her new Gallery, MUSETTE in Sonoma California. She also has a Museum and School called MUSEA. 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." Legend Student
What can we tell you to guide you towards your yes?
This course begins with a virtual global gathering with over 100 women throughout the world. 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 4 weeks plus the option to attend zoom circles and connect with students. If you can block 3 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!
Together we will explore, play, invent and rock our canvases!
Here is what to expect.

A personal message from Shiloh Sophia about Clan Cura and the theme.
This Legend will include a core teaching transmission from Sue Hoya Sellars aka Bayou Starbutch about encodings and activating potentials.From Caron McCloud aka Mama Cloud about Identity and no longer being hidden. From Carmen Baraka aka Spirit Warrior on Quantum love and Ceremony.
Yes. I am using the word Shamanka respectfully and intentionally, meaning female shaman, meaning the healing one within each of us. We aren't claiming the word as our own in any way, rather we are using this term to point towards the awakening of the healer within each one of us no matter where we come from. Carmen used to say that we must each find the shaman that lives within us - not to need to claim that we are that for others or hang a shingle, but that we are that first for ourselves. There isn't a word that means what we are talking about, but perhaps in the cave of the wild grandmother we will find the archetype we are seeking as women at this time. We shall see. For now it is all in mystery. Well, not all of it. You can read the heart of what came through on the Invocation tab...
Carmen was going to join us for a LEGEND course on the Inner Healer in 2020 when she began to be ill. We talked about it and went round and round and round and the course was never made. We met January 1, 2020 to discuss. Sue was going to join us for Legend 2015 focused around the Selkie woman story. The conversations with each of them won't leave me until I lead the course that we were going to lead together, but now with all of you - for the reasons they both had about why this matters.
They walked on before we had a chance to do the next Legend. I have to keep sharing what they taught.
"Legend brings many aspects of healing together in a way that nothing else has. Now I know what to do to transform my pain" Legend Student
CREATING GREAT CHANGE REQUIRES GREAT RISK
Great change, in life, doesn't happen through thinking about it over and over. To change 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

What Previous LEGEND Students have Created and Shared ...
“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."
