Esalen is reopening March 1

Esalen's Big Sur campus is currently closed and will reopen March 1, 2021.

In a difficult year with multiple closures, we choose to look at the challenges as opportunities to reflect on our work and explore new ways to keep it accessible. Our operating costs continue, even when we're closed to guests; if you’re able, please consider supporting Esalen financially by becoming a Friend of Esalen.

And although our campus is closed, personal exploration never stops! Look to this space or follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube for updates on digital offerings and news about reopening.

Make a future reservation for The Rituals of Esalen or A Time To Reflect.


We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.


Experience twenty-seven acres of Pacific coastline paradise.


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.
