Unshakable Presence: Coming Home to Who You Truly Are

Apr 01 - 06, 2018 Begins in 1 month
with Miranda Macpherson

Imagine being deeply at rest, and held within an unconditional love that offers total support for you to go within, let go, and address the important themes of your life. In the core of every human being lives indestructible purity, love, intelligence, peace, and stillness, unaffected by the difficulties of our histories and the identifications we have formed. Yet commonly we live on the surface of ourselves, busy trying to control life to manifest our desires and keep away our fears. This keeps us seeking fulfillment but disconnected from it.



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.
