Esalen Through Your Eyes

We know there are many talented folks who visit the Esalen campus, and if you share your creative work with us it could be published in the next catalog.

In addition to photographs, we'd love to receive your short essays, poems, or images of sculpture or other artwork that are either about Esalen or were created or inspired here.

Photographs may be used in the catalog, on our website or in other print materials, or submitted for use in Esalen-related publications. Any images used will include proper credit for the photographer. We do not provide payment for photos.

Please note the following requirements:

  • Large JPEGs (7 inches in the longest dimension)
  • Minimum 240 dpi
  • Photos should depict scenes at Esalen only; images with people will only be used if they are unidentifiable or if a signed model release is provided
  • Images taken from a cell phone may be usable, but please verify that they meet the size requirements at 240 dpi or attach a sample photo to your inquiry

Individual or small numbers of photos can be sent directly to If you wish to submit many photos or very large, high resolution files, please contact for further submission instructions.
