is an early childhood educator who specializes in sharing smiles, laughter, and the bliss of life. He has worked with injured children at Shriner's Hospital as a play therapist and is a former teacher at Gazebo School Park. His passions include surfing, freediving, yoga, meditation, and poetry.
Inspired by Big Sur's wild nature and the heartfelt path of fatherhood, this family workshop will be a weekend of laughter, exploration, and connection. There will be stories around the campfire, games, discussion, and time for all to be nourished by Esalen's healing land and waters. We will use Esalen's Gazebo School Park, designed for children to climb, bike, garden, make music, dance, and care for farm animals, as well as the art barn and Esalen's extraordinary and expansive grounds.
