is a landscape designer and manager of the Esalen grounds crew. She graduated from The Art Institute of Chicago in 1993, in sculpture, and founded her own design/build landscape company in Seattle. Her passion for design, rare plants, and found objects inspires her creative work.
“On Esalen’s property we have the opportunity to experience Big Sur’s dynamic wilderness, from the redwood forest to the rocky coastline,” writes Christina Dauenhauer. “During this program, we’ll come into contact with our own, individual inspiration through basic awareness practice, creating art out in the environment, and hiking. Slowing to the rhythms of nature, we will engage our creativity, while connecting with ourselves.
