The Mindful Family Retreat

May 26 - 28, 2017 Begins in 7 months
with Ivy Mayer Lavie & Shai Lavie

Imagine a beautiful and protected space that supports you to mindfully turn within and find greater ease, and gives you space to play and just be with your family—all held in the dramatic natural surroundings of Esalen. This family retreat offers time to unplug from the busyness of life and find meaningful reconnection within and without. We will have time together as a group, and time when adults and children meet separately. Adult meditations will support quieting the mind, opening the heart, and being present to the beauty and the challenges of life.



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.
