Baking: The Heart of the Esalen Home Weekend of May 9-11 , 2014

$405.00 – $1,750.00 (based on accommodation type)

This workshop's start date has passed.

Workshop Details

In American mythology, baked goods often represent safety, kindness, and the warmth of familial love. At Esalen, the bread bar, breakfast biscuits, and baked desserts are definitely part of creating a unique ambiance.  But baking is no longer an art passed down from mother to children. A superlative pie is probably not on offer at the nearest roadside diner, biscuits pop out of a cardboard canister, and many home cooks are intimidated by the thought of baking bread. In this workshop, we will bake and enjoy exceptionally good pie together, feed and develop a sourdough culture for use in Esalen’s classic sourdough rye bread, and bake some simple and versatile biscuit and quick-bread recipes. This mother's day weekend workshop is designed to introduce Esalen-style baking into your kitchen repertoire and to send you back out into the world feeling nourished and empowered. Everyone, including daughters and sons 14 years and older, is welcome. 


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.
