Soul Rising: Ritual of Renewal

Apr 19 - 21, 2019 Begins in 2 months
with Shiva Rea

See and taste the flowing One through your whole being.

Feel the Holy Spirit moving you within the flowing fire of the One.

—Mechthild of Magdeburg

We find the spring season, with its power of emergence, in the very nature of our own bodies, and also profoundly mirrored in the mythic landscape of Esalen. In this intimate ritual of renewal, we will create an arc of prana vinyasa, meditation, and massage to open to the emergence of new life as we experience Esalen's fertile land as a sacred place to listen, pray, and align with our soul's rising.



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.
