Give thanks by celebrating the holiday season and enjoying the natural beauty of the Esalen land, while learning how to give an Esalen Massage. This seasonal workshop offers the talents of two experienced teachers and five days of touch. This week of mutual giving and receiving is for those of you who wish to learn the fundamental elements of Esalen Massage. The essence of the Esalen style of bodywork is the awareness and presence with which one approaches massage.
This workshop is a wonderful opportunity for you to enjoy the beauty of Big Sur and the healing waters of the Esalen hot springs, while gaining a foundation in the art and practice of Esalen Massage. During the week, participants will be taught massage methods that address the whole body: Esalen’s signature long, flowing strokes that support feelings of wholeness, connection, and integration; passive joint movement; and a variety of techniques to work with the major muscle groups of the body.
