Apprenticeships & Internships

Applying inner growth and insight in service of global/cultural/social change is a core principle at Esalen.

And, because forging new understandings of self and society and pioneering new paths for change is deep work and can take time and support, we offer in-depth extended internships and apprenticeships within our community to allow time and space to experiment in the safe confines of our learning laboratory here in Big Sur.

Whether it takes a month, a year, or longer, you will emerge from an apprenticeship with the tools and experience to unleash latent capacities and find a re-energized sense of purpose — for yourself and for the world. Let's have an adventure!
