The atmosphere of your first night's dinner crackles with excitement and anticipation — even though you're a "stranger", it feels oddly familiar, with a shoulder-to-shoulder conviviality — you watch people embrace, weave, and glide through the open spaces with grace, speak to the server by name, and scan the message board with a well-practiced over-the-shoulder glance, gliding through the screen door without breaking stride. They've been here a while. Or before. Or both.
You find yourself thinking . . . I could do that, be that, live that kind of life.
Welcome to Esalen. Welcome home.
