“Nature provides space to quiet our souls, gain perspective, and harness our creativity," says Wilma Wyss. “Explore Esalen’s stunning grounds to find places that resonate and inspire your mosaic art, be it big vistas, small individual succulents, or anything in between. Mosaic is a slow and contemplative art form, perfectly suited for Esalen’s restorative setting.”
