Yoga and Zen: One Body, One Mind

Jan 27 - Feb 01, 2019 Begins in 1 month
with Tias Little & Henry Shukman

Through the powerful combination of yoga and Zen we can taste the possibility of an all-inclusive, global awareness. On the mat we practice embodiment from our toes to the crown of our head. In every fiber, cell, and sinew of our bodies we animate the force of nature known as prana. On the seat of ease and joy, the Zen meditation cushion, we come closer to realizing our intrinsic essential nature. The raw, natural beauty of Esalen further enhances our deepening into these ancient practices. Henry and Tias guide from their respective traditions while exploring connections between the two.



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