Workshop Details

WisdomWomen is a growing movement of women who believe it is time to look in a revolutionary new direction and build our world from a different paradigm. We are not asking whether or not this can be done. We are claiming that it is ours to do.
This is the second annual property-wide gathering exclusively for women at Esalen. This gathering is for all women who dare to express their radical visions and unique gifts in service to a world where all beings thrive. We invite trailblazers, thought and heart leaders, and paradigm shifters to join us in a wild experimentation that takes us beyond time and space.
Through this Visionary Gathering, we create a container of connection and support to embrace our grief, wisdom, wounds, and gifts while we collaborate.
We sacredly co-create with one another by:
• Gathering as a whole group daily in ceremony, land honoring, and celebration
• Convening in smaller, themed councils to catalogue wisdom gleaned from the best and worst practices of our current world and envisioning new systems of societal organization (education, language, governance, environment, intergenerational community, living in village, health and well-being, gender and identity, currency, racial equality, the arts)
• Building a blueprint for the new world while sharing resources and possibilities for the physical creation of our collective vision beyond the gathering
• Nurturing our souls and bodies through movement, bathing, nature, and spontaneous connection.
WisdomWomen conveners listen for the unique theme and structure for each of our Visionary Gatherings by joining together in Council prior to our time together. Our convener and facilitation team uses information gathered from applications to co-create the gathering with the emergent wisdom of the women in attendance.
This gathering is a gateway experience for continued radical co-creation as a community. WisdomWomen provides opportunities for attendees to connect before and beyond the gathering. The possibilities we birth will be nurtured by our ongoing support network and offerings.


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.
