John Curry, Starwae, Sonoma, CA, Canon Digital Rebel

I just returned from a most magical retreat with SARK at a bed and breakfast called Starwae in Sonoma. I’ve been trying to plan pre-baby getaways for myself and when SARK told me about this event I leapt at the chance to assist her.

It was an intimate weekend affair with 20 amazing women. We laughed, we shared, we made art and we ate some of the most delicious food I have ever had. (Made by the talented John Curry and Janice Crow, the owners of Starwae)

Janice and John are incredible artists and have made Starwae into so much more than a bed and breakfast. It is a place to be nourished creatively and transformed. It is filled with art and sculpture and gardens, birds and fruit trees and warm air.

SARK will be leading another workshop the weekend of October 28th and 29th. There are a few more spaces available if any of you are inspired to go. It will transform you!

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    How lovely your retreat sounded… SARK is a joy. I love her writings and her art, and I too would have “jumped” at the chance to be involved. Also, I love the photo of John Curry. He looks like a wise soul with a zest for life. The Starwae Inn sounds amazing too. I am so wishing I could do SARKS Oct.28 & 29 retreat…but sadly I have another commitment.
