Workshop Details

Celebrate summer in the land of rejuvenation with the world-renowned Banana Slug String Band. We will use music, theater, puppetry, poetry, arts, and games to deepen our connection to this magical earth. The program will culminate in a performance by the budding children stars and the Banana Slug String Band. Together we’ll create a community of families to laugh, connect, and renew as we explore dance, harvesting and eating delicious organic food, hiking among the redwoods and stream on the Esalen grounds, a night walk, star gazing, parent education workshop, and plenty of time to soak in the baths. (Be sure to check out the movement classes offered at Esalen each morning to start your day). We will watch the sun set on the ocean bluff and feed the goats and chickens at Gazebo Park School. You’ve been busy all year; take the time to drop into your sense of wonder and reestablish your loving bond with each other and the earth. This workshop is open to children of all ages. Participants under 18 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Note: Parents can contact Gazebo to inquire about enrolling your children for additional time outside our workshop schedule:


We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.


A global network of seekers devoted to the belief that we are all capable of the extraordinary.
