The atmosphere of your first night's dinner crackles with excitement and anticipation — even though you're a "stranger", it feels oddly familiar, with a shoulder-to-shoulder conviviality — you watch people embrace, weave, and glide through the open spaces with grace, speak to the server by name, and scan the message board with a well-practiced over-the-shoulder glance, gliding through the screen door without breaking stride. They've been here a while. Or before. Or both.

You find yourself thinking . . . I could do that, be that, live that kind of life.

Welcome to Esalen. Welcome home.

The Esalen Center for Theory & Research supports essential philosophic, academic, and research aims of the Esalen Institute. It evaluates frontier inquiry, creates networks of pioneering individuals, and works to catalyze new discoveries that promote personal and social transformation.

Gardeners gather at dawn amid steaming cups of tea while the harvest  leader reports the requests from the kitchen for lunch and dinner. By the  time they've paused for breakfast, the harvest will have been washed and  moved to the kitchen's cooler.

Resting on the edge of the mighty Pacific and rugged Ventana wilderness, the Esalen Institute's Farm and Garden is a bountiful source of food, education, and community throughout the year. The nursery is full of vibrant, young seedlings – daily harvests of fresh, organic, and lovingly-reared produce grows larger by the day – apprentices reap the bounty of life's lessons found within the seed and within the soil.
