IAHE - Full Body Presence: Grounding and Healthy Boundaries

Aug 18 - 23, 2019 Begins in 3 weeks
with Suzanne Scurlock

In today’s world we all need full access to our inner and outer resources in order to survive and thrive with the daily demands being presented to us. Do you love feeling grounded and mindfully aware? Would you like to experience more resilience under stress and access your creativity and joy to your deepest potential?


Healing the Pelvic Floor: Reclaiming Your Power, Sexuality and Pleasure Potential

Aug 25 - Sep 01, 2019 Begins in 1 month
with Suzanne Scurlock

As women we have a unique power of creativity in our reproductive systems. That power is used not only to create new life, but also to bring personal projects into being. However, that energy can be blocked by physical, emotional or spiritual trauma to the pelvic floor and the female organs.


Leadership and Presence

Sep 01 - 29, 2019 Begins in 1 month
with Suzanne Scurlock

Presence is the hidden key to successful leadership. The more present we are in ourselves, the more present we can be with someone else. This monthlong program offers experiential work designed to help you pay attention to the subtle cues you receive from your body and the surrounding environment all the time. This will give you access to your own, highly valuable inner landscape — the wisdom of your body-mind-spirit, which significantly enhances your ability to be more fully present as a leader.

In this month we will share how to:



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.
