Experience Esalen without taking a workshop. Space available for A Time To Reflect, 5/1-5/6



Personal Retreat

Extraordinarily Simple

Sometimes all you need to realize your fullest potential is time and space.

A Personal Retreat is a gift of self-care; an opportunity to do as much or as little as you like. They are available in our workshop catalog by advance notice searching the title A Time to Reflect.

Each day you are free to choose among Esalen’s unique gifts: our natural hot springs, daily movement and meditation classes, weekly evening programs, gourmet meals, and twenty-seven acres of spectacular grounds.

You could…dive into your next creative project or finish a work-in-progress. Meditate for hours in the streamside meditation roundhouse, volunteer in the farm and garden, or bring that stack of books you’ve always wanted to read. Treat yourself to a massage or other healing modality each and every day, or even twice a day.

Or, you could just…let your beingness be.

Nourish your mind, body, heart, and soul by treating yourself to the best of Esalen.
