Designing the Life You Want: Self-Renewal in the New Year

Jan 20 - 22, 2017 Begins this weekend
with Mark Nicolson

You have never been where you are today. You have never been the age you are today, or had the experience you have today. The river of life flows and we find ourselves in places we have never been before. At times, you must pause and reflect: Have you created the life you want? Are you going in the right direction? Are you who you want to be?



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.
