Be A Part of Esalen's Renewal

“Esalen, the place, the people, and the conversations, have forever changed my life. I support Esalen to show gratitude and commitment to her sustainability so that her mission and regenerative gifts can be shared today and for generations to come.”
– Judy Crawford, The Crawford Group

Campus Renewal Campaign

The Lodge, the meeting rooms named for Aldous Huxley, Abraham Maslow, Fritz Perls, Ida Rolf and others, Murphy House and Price House, the baths, the deck overlooking the cliffs – all of these function as sacred vessels for the kind of healing, exploration, and discovery that happen at Esalen and nowhere else.

The $5 million Campus Renewal Campaign, the largest property development in the Institute’s history, ensures these transformational experiences can continue today and well into the future.

With more than $3 million already committed by generous supporters, current Campus Renewal priorities include:

  • Renovations and additions to Esalen’s historic Lodge
  • Addition of guest rooms adjacent to the Art Barn
  • Development and planning for essential staff housing
