The Magical Family

Jun 30 - Jul 02, 2017 Begins in 3 months
with Ivy Mayer Lavie & Robert Fisher

The gorgeous Esalen gardens are home base for this weekend of play, creativity, and celebration. Get ready for a unique experience for you and your child, including mindfulness practices through connection to nature and expressive, musical, and sensory awareness games. We will spend time together as a group with music, mindfulness, and welcoming play, and time in breakout groups where the parents and children have their own experiences. For the child, we pay special attention to what is emergent and noble, and seek to celebrate the burgeoning soulfulness of the child.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.


A global network of seekers devoted to the belief that we are all capable of the extraordinary.
