Parent and Child: Creating a Conscious Relationship

Jun 14 - 16, 2019 Begins in 1 month
with James Baraz & Adam Baraz

Join the Baraz family in exploring the bond between parent and child, which is perhaps the most influential relationship in shaping who we are. When it is healthy, conscious, and has spiritual depth, it leads to a supportive attachment that affects all our other relationships. In this workshop on Father's Day weekend, we invite families and anyone who has had a parent, been a parent, had a child or been a child to Esalen for an opportunity to explore the optimal vision for their relationship and a chance to heal their past parent-child relationship.

Embodying Presence: Relaxing the Body into Being

Dec 13 - 15, 2019 Begins in 7 months
with James Baraz & Adam Baraz

The shift from “thinking” to “being” is one of the most essential aspects of the meditative journey. We will explore somatic practices to quiet the conceptual mind, unlocking the hidden power, warmth and wisdom of the body. Drawing upon their father-son connection, James and Adam Baraz will offer teachings from Tibetan yoga and Buddhist mindfulness practice.
