Esalen Benefit Weekend 2016

Gratitude as an Expression of Renewal

Inauguration of the Lodge and Benefit Weekend Celebration
October 14-16, 2016

We are constantly in the process of renewal — whether it is renewal of our minds, bodies, spirits, or the physical world around us. Our Campus Renewal Project incorporates all of these essential elements and the time has come to celebrate a key milestone: the restoration of the Lodge.

Please join us for a weekend celebration that includes:

  • Guided tours of the restored Lodge
  • Mini workshops
  • Presentation of the Esalen Prize to Ken and Maddy Dychtwald
  • Presentation of the Spirit of Esalen Award to Terry Hunt and Marion Hunt


  • $1,790 per person
  • $3,580 per couple
  • Limited single rooms are available.

* Standard accommodations only. Cost of attendance includes a $1,000 tax-deductible donation.
