Your One Wild and Precious Life: A Deepening Gathering for Women

Aug 16 - 21, 2015 Begins in 1 week
with Jean Shinoda Bolen

The premise of Jean’s Jungian, feminist, and spiritual perspective begins with the certainty that it matters what we do with our “one wild and precious life,” a quote from the poet Mary Oliver. To find and live our personal myth is to be true to who we are. For many who attend, the likelihood is that Artemis, the goddess of the hunt and moon, whose real and metaphoric terrain is the wilderness, is an archetype, inner child, and activist.



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.


Stay connected. Keep your Esalen experience alive, online or in person.
