Meditative Writing

Nov 29 - Dec 04, 2015 Begins in 1 month
with Daniel Rechtschaffen & Benjamin Jackson

In this workshop, Daniel and Ben will lead you through writing exercises and meditations designed to engage the senses and help you tap into your reservoirs of memory, imagination, and direct awareness — reservoirs you may not even know you have. Steeped in contemplative practices of qigong, nature awareness, and mindfulness, we will learn how to let our writing arise from a sense of presence and attunement. While writing, we will strive to be as open and honest as possible, allowing the creative process to carry us away.



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.


Stay connected. Keep your Esalen experience alive, online or in person.
