Celebrating Fatherhood

Jun 14 - 16, 2019 Begins in 1 month
with Joanna Claassen Ferraro & Vinny Ferraro

With so much to get to, it’s easy to get caught up in all the doing. Let’s spend some time just being. Over the weekend there will be stories, games for the whole family, crafts for the kids, and time for everyone to be nourished by Esalen's healing land and waters. Saturday afternoon, we will offer a children's program, during which adults will be free to book a massage, enjoy some solitude, or spend time with one another. We will also explore the inner life with some mindful reflection on the path of fatherhood.



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.


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.
