The first time I heard the word Oaxaca.

The first time I heard the word Oaxaca I was in the 6th grade. My best friend and her family had just gotten back from there and I still remember the feeling in my body when I heard them say it – Oaxaca. It inspired a kind of yearning for me, a curiosity, a resonance I couldn’t explain. I decided then and there that I would visit this magical place one day.

In my mid-twenties, I decided to craft my own personal artist retreat and found a Spanish language school in Oaxaca where I could study for a couple of months. I was placed with a family there and for 11 dollars a day, I had food and housing and spanish classes! My digs were far from luxurious (I seem to remember sleeping on a cement slab with a bit of foam on it!) but I loved it anyway. The city astounded me – the zocalo brimming with life, the artisans everywhere, the color color color that filled up my artist heart.

Apparently, Oaxaca has always captured my spirit… because, now, all these years later, Laurie and I are cooking up a special insider trip to Oaxaca this October! We plan to gather a small group (6-8 of you max) for the usual deliciousness – Wild Writing, photography, artisan studio visits, cooking classes/food tours + other surprise delights.

The hotel is beautiful and has a pool!

This means that you will be part of our recon mission and will get a super intimate experience with us! We plan to offer a Oaxaca trip in the future with a much bigger group, but this is our discovery mission with you.

Dates are: Sunday, October 6th- Friday, October 11th, 2019

Our hotel is just 15 minutes from the Oaxaca airport.

NOTE: We only have 2 spots available!

We have 1 private room available at 2,600 which includes 5 nights stay, 2 group dinners, writing and photography workshops, all excursions + other delights. We also have one shared room available at 2,200.

As usual, the non-refundable deposit is $500

If you are interested, please nab your spot and pay your deposit by August 30th, 2019.

We are SO EXCITED for this.

Please come with us!!!
Andrea + Laurie

P.S. If you want to get inspired, the blogger Eva Kosmas Flores captured some amazing photos of Oaxaca (below) and some of the things we will see. Seeing her photos made my heart explode with excitement for this trip.

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.
