Many of us would benefit from learning how to dis-identify with the mental chatter in our heads and cultivate equanimity. These qualities help us make healthy, long-term decisions and engender loving, positive, secure, and supportive attachments to other people.



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.
