This Mother's Day weekend, celebrate and nourish yourself and your family. Esalen is a magical place for adults and children alike. Together with the Gazebo School teachers, we will create a community of families focused on fun, laughter, renewal, and friendship. This will be a memorable weekend of exploration, connection, creative expression, and play. We will build on the group's interests and offer opportunities for families to work and play together and apart.
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 Park School, 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.
