Tending the Heart Fire: Regenerating the Body of Love Thanksgiving Yoga Journey

Nov 29 - Dec 01, 2019 Begins in 3 months
with Shiva Rea

Join our annual Thanksgiving retreat to tend your heart fire as the center of wisdom, soul satisfaction and most of all the transforming power of love. For many years, we have retreated to the warm springs of Esalen during the Thanksgiving weekend for a ritual deepening and renewal of the heart fire. This popular retreat always changes and yet is constant in the regeneration of the "body of love." This year Shiva will be joined by musician Donna Delory.



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.
