The Ecology Within: The Healing Synthesis of Nature and Psyche

Nov 17 - 22, 2019 Begins in 4 months
with Daniel Rechtschaffen & Rene Henery

We are expressions of Nature. The dynamics and connections that shape the natural world and guide its evolution are mirrored in our physical, emotional and psychological bodies. For this reason, attunement to external systems can reveal a map for our own healing and growth.



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.


A global network of seekers devoted to the belief that we are all capable of the extraordinary.


Stay connected. Keep your Esalen experience alive, online or in person.
