“Esalen is a leading center for exploring and realizing human potential through experience, education, and research. We work toward the realization of a more humane and all-embracing world, seeking answers to questions unlikely to be explored by traditional universities and religions. We sponsor pioneering initiatives and offer personal, spiritual, and social transformation programs for residents, interns, and workshop participants.” -The Esalen Mission
I spent several months working and living at this unbelievable and delicious place. The healing, the rich history (The Beatles played here, Aldous Huxley and Maslow were some of the first lecturers…the list goes on and on). If you get a chance I would highly recommend spending some time here for a workshop or personal retreat. Some of the classes offer CE credits. The healing hot springs were once a spot frequented by indigenous people for it’s healing potential.
