Legacy Group - Inspired by Nature: Creative Expression in Esalen’s Big Sur Landscape

Feb 12 - Mar 12, 2017 Begins in 8 months
with Christina Dauenhauer

“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.



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