Love and Belonging: Nourishing the Heart of Relationship

Nov 01 - 06, 2015 Begins in 2 months
with Dyrian Benz-Chartrand & JoAnne Chartrand-Benz

Sometimes your heart slips into hiding, and you can disconnect from the empowerment and well-being that comes from living “heartfully.” What happened to this radiance and wholeness you were born with? The heart often holds memories of ruptures and emotional wounds that go back several generations. This interrupts our reaching-out movement, our capacity for true intimacy and heartful relationships. Uncover disruptions and entanglements so that all parts of the self and all members of your family can find their own strength, dignity, love, and purpose. Reclaim your lost living heart.



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.
