At the ocean, life is different. Time doesn't move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the currents, plan by the tides and follow the sun
Esalen is perched at the edge of the Pacific Ocean, which creates a sublime horizon connecting our lives to the infinite. We evolved out of the ocean, the blood in our veins having almost the same salinity as sea water. We are primal beings who exist within, not apart from nature. There is nothing like a clear view of the ocean to center ourselves in the unity of all things.
