Our reality and experience in life is determined by the character position in which we find ourselves. This position may be historically determined through social conditioning, or ingeniously through the character we create for ourselves for optimal security and comfort. It changes constantly through our interaction with the world and with ourselves. But are they the best positions for effective living? Or are they the root cause for unsustainable health? For example, isn’t the character position of “always wanting to please others” restrictive and limiting?



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.
