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.
