Jewel in the Oasis of Inspiration

The Dome House

This is our "Jewel"...a dome home built in 1970 by a civil rights attorney named Sherwin Shayne and Friends who helped out over time.  There is plenty of colorful history with this house in the 70's as you might imagine but the property itself also has a rich and colorful history dating back to the 20's. 

More on that in the "Property History" section.

When you enter this lovely and rustic home you may feel like you're inside a very luxurious and huge redwood tree.   The ambient resonance inside is both comforting and so unique that you may find yourself marveling at the workmanship while somehow experiencing a sense of timelessness.  With windows all around the house you will have a constant view of the redwood trees.

This is a magical oasis is a perfect space to gather if you are attending a retreat or workshop.

Visit The Dome Gallery & Studio located in the garden level of the Dome House.

Sofanya often has her gallery open on weekends and occasionally holds a gathering to celebrate the change of seasons.  You of course are always welcome to join in and may even wish to book your stay to coordinate with an event.

If you're interested in taking a painting workshop or having your Essence Portrait made or just visit and peruse the gallery please call for an appt.
