The Joy of an Open Heart: Love, Awareness and Intimacy

Sep 20 - 25, 2015 Begins in 1 month
with Karishma Darby

There is a natural desire in all of us to fully be ourselves, to live and love from our deepest essential nature. We feel this desire most keenly in our longing for authentic human intimacy. Unfortunately, painful and frightening experiences often lead us to withdraw from the gift of our own luminous beauty. Instead of cultivating our capacity for intimacy, we hide from ourselves and others, too anxious, depressed, or numb to honor and embody our true radiance.



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.
