My husband and I just returned from a delightful 10-day trip to Northern California.
The impetus for the trip was my desire to take a workshop called Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain taught by Lynda Greenberg. I first met Lynda around 15 years ago and have been dreaming about taking this workshop ever since. Now was the perfect time since I’ve made a commitment to nurture my budding inner artist.
It was a fascinating class, and I learned lots of great information about the functions of both the right side AND left side of the brain. The workshop took place at Esalen in Big Sur, California. Esalen has been on the forefront of human consciousness since it opened in the early 1960s. Folks like Joseph Campbell, Gabrielle Roth, Fritz Perls (father of gestalt) and Aldous Huxley, to name a few, spent time on the beautiful grounds of Esalen.
My husband took a Kirtan class from Dave Stringer which he absolutely adored.
When our workshops came to a close, we drove up to Marin to spend my birthday weekend with dear friends. I showed my husband, Tom, where I used to live in San Francisco and Tiburon.
Then, we headed over to visit more friends in Piedmont. While I was in the East Bay, Tom and I had lunch with Chris Zydel. It was so much fun to meet another goddess from my expressive arts tribe!
A trip to the Bay Area wouldn’t be complete without a visit to San Francisco!
Contrary to the popular song, I didn’t leave my heart in San Francisco. Instead, I took with me a renewed and refreshed soul!
