The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible

Aug 10 - 15 Begins in 1 week
with Charles Eisenstein

Many people sense that the multiple crises of today share a common root. All of them come from an invisible mythology: a Story of the Self and a Story of the People that holds us separate from each other and the world.  In this gathering, we will see clearly how this mythology generates the dominant institutions of our civilization, as well as the structures of our own lives. We will touch upon our innate knowledge that a more beautiful world is possible. We will see how to draw power from that knowledge.



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.
