Advanced Energy Efficiency and Alternative Supplies for Profitable Climate Protection

with Amory Lovins

All of America’s oil and most or all of its natural gas, and three-quarters of its electricity can be saved more cheaply than supplying them from existing facilities. Dramatic advances in efficiency technologies, ways to combine and integrate them, and ways to market and implement them are synergistic with parallel revolutions in low- or no-carbon energy supplies. All are rapidly expanding. For example, “micropower” (cogeneration plus distributed renewables) already provides a fourth of the world's electricity and half its new electric capacity.


When Water Becomes Gold: The New Alchemy

Dec 09 - 11, 2016 Begins in 1 month
with Amory Lovins, Ian-Michael Hebert & Peter Mullin

Esalen Institute is blessed by three powerful waters: the Pacific Ocean, the healing hot springs, and the freshwater creek that flows through the property. These sacred waters have offered people a place to heal and nourish themselves for thousands of years.
However, taking this precious commodity for granted as a limitless resource is increasingly risky as we face hundred-year-drought conditions, which a temporary El Niño deluge will not solve – our thousands of years old aquifers are increasingly depleted.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.


Make a difference and leave a legacy by becoming a Friend of Esalen.


A global network of seekers devoted to the belief that we are all capable of the extraordinary.
