If you are looking for another way to grow, in a unique format different from the traditional workshop, please join us for an Esalen original series: Conversations on the Edge. In each of these curated weekend events, we bring together leading experts and visiting teachers to explore a pressing issue of our time in a vibrant, interactive forum of lecture, lightning talks, group discussion and idea sharing.



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