Seven Practices of a Mindful Leader: Mindfulness, Sensory Awareness and Zen Practice

Apr 07 - 12, 2019 Begins in 2 weeks
with Lee Lesser & Marc Lesser

In our world of busy-ness — of more, faster, better — this retreat offers time to stop, reflect, and renew. It is a time to step fully into the richness of our lives. Together we will follow a gentle schedule of sensory awareness practice and sitting meditation interspersed with talks, Zen stories, and journal writing, as well as small group and large group dialogue as we uncover how these stories and dialogues may be utilized to transform our way of being in the world as leaders.



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.


Choose your adventure: workshops, bodywork, retreats and more.


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.
