A Weekend of Advanced Esalen Massage®

May 03 - 05, 2019 Begins in 1 week
with Jessica Fagan & Char Pias

This weekend provides practitioners with the opportunity to up-level their current massage practice. Experienced Esalen Massage and Bodywork practitioners will offer unique explorations in the practices of gentle extensions and dynamic mobilization, along with soft and deep tissue release work. Range of motion and passive release techniques will also be brought onto the table, creating an atmosphere of innovation and exploration.


Advanced Esalen Massage® with Special Focus on the Shoulder Girdle

Aug 09 - 11, 2019 Begins in 3 months
with Jessica Fagan & Paméla Espinoza

This advanced massage workshop focuses on the shoulder girdle and the neck. Imbalances and chronic tension around the scapulae, neck and shoulder are frequently caused by misaligned habitual movement patterns. These holding patterns result in kyphosis, elevated/retracted shoulders or a depressed chest, all of which affect one’s ability to breathe fully, supporting habits of fear and anxiety.



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