Workshop Details

Are you curious about mindfulness and self-compassion and about their transformative potential for you? Join us for a weekend of practicing and learning together. While mindfulness teaches us to pay attention to what is happening inside and out, self-compassion changes the way we pay attention. Just as a bird needs two wings to fly, mindfulness and compassion support and strengthen each other in a beautiful way. Let the gorgeous setting of Esalen support you in exploring new ways of being. In a safe and supportive environment, we’ll practice new ways to engage with the fullness of life to be more real, more joyful, and more alive. This workshop is for people new or relatively new to mindfulness and/or self-compassion practice, and those who want to freshen up their knowledge and understanding.
Please bring a mediation cushion or bench and mat.


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.
