The MAX: Expanding the Limits of Your Self-Expression

Nov 23 - 28 Begins in 3 months
with Paula Shaw

For more than twenty years, THE MAX has held an honored status among the Esalen staff and is considered by many to be an essential rite of passage for community members. The purpose of THE MAX is to discover yourself beyond who you know yourself to be. It is a voyage through your own humanity—a journey to discover the extent of your self-expressive power. Employing a variety of acting, communication, and observation techniques, it’s designed to expand your limits “to the max” and move you into a new arena of personal creativity and self-expression.

Improv Inspiration: Wit and Wisdom in an Instant 

Nov 28 - 30 Begins in 4 months
with Paula Shaw

This workshop is an adventure in releasing programmed patterns and discovering the delight of spontaneous creation. The joy of playing improvisational theatre games comes from surrendering to the process. Each game has focus points that allow you to suspend your accustomed automated and controlled thinking. The liberation that follows fully opens up your mind to imaginative freedom, your voice to new and surprising sounds, verbal humor, eloquence, and flowing physical grace in movement.
