Deep Writing

Apr 17 - 22, 2016 Begins in 2 months
with Eric Maisel

Eric Maisel’s Deep Writing workshops are simple in structure and powerful in effect. The group creates a genuinely safe environment because participants’ writing is neither shared nor critiqued. Rather, the group receives permission to spend time connecting with and falling back in love with their own writing. Each writing session begins with a core lesson. You explore the unique challenges that writers face around committing, planning, and doing; how to generate mental energy, achieve a centered presence, master anxiety, and maintain a writing life.



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.
