SOBER SLEEPOVER

SUMMER CREATIVE RETREAT

AUGUST 18TH-20TH

2023

PORT AUSTIN, MICHIGAN


A NEW BRIDGE CREATED TOWARDS HEALING

WHO?

In late 2022 Alexander Vlachos and Karianne Spens-Hanna found a cabin home tucked away on 6 acres in Port Austin, MI. Alexander and Karianne's intention is to have an additional grounding space close enough to Detroit but far enough from the main city to comprehend and understand the immeasurable solace and healing that nature provides.

WHEN?

Our Debut Sober Summer Retreat will take place on Greater Alexander's birthday, August 18th. You will be offered an area to bring your camping gear into the backyard forest of Star Forest Stay. Inside the forest we focus our intentions on our internal creativity and how it reflects in our environment. We find that nature brings out awareness and insight within the greater part of the self. Arrive ready to sense the grace of our milky way galaxy. Become inspired to create something new.

WHERE?

Located at the tip of the thumb, the retreat space is located in Port Austin, Michigan closer to Port Crescent State Park. We are about 2 Hours From Rochester, 2.5 hours from Detroit, 2.75 hours from Ann-Arbor.

WHAT?

Star Forest Stay is a place that will offer private getaways and guided retreat programs for future short/mid term stay artists that will reside at the Greater Impact House.

WHY?

In order to raise awareness of the 6 acre space, Alexander and Karianne are offering private community retreats and donating funds back to the efforts made to revive the Greater Impact House.
