Modern Nod to Nostalgia with Heather Martin

Body

Developing our Spring collection was not an easy task. Many steps are required when building out apparel collections for an average retailer. Adding Esalen’s additional information — such as history, the value of sustainability, eco-friendly choices and the desire to embrace change — made it important for me to simply bring forth a modern nod to nostalgia.

Upon arriving at Esalen, guests can visit our store to reserve appointments, pick up a beverage, grab snacks, and yes, shop for something special. It was for this reason that I wanted to create and showcase items that were new yet would reflect Esalen’s rich past. Choosing colors popular from previous time periods, design elements that incorporate a retro vibe, and classic silhouettes that exude comfort were all factors in the choices I made. There are eco-friendly sweatshirts and tees, throwback pullovers, organic t-shirts, and cropped styles. Let’s get to shopping!  

Our Esalen Eco Cozy Sweatshirt has become an instant favorite of mine. The soft feel of cotton and relaxed fit is the perfect combination for a unisex style. The Esalen logo is rendered in a very ‘70s-style art composition yet the pale grey color gives it a modern appeal. Having recycled materials makes this an even better decision —who doesn’t want to protect our earth?

Available in two colors, our Esalen Organic T-shirt is truly modern yet vibes with the past. Made of 100% Organic cotton, these tees are a traditional mens’ fit but are designed for all. For the one who wants to shine bright!

The Esalen Throwback Sweatshirt is inspired and borrowed from previous decades with its easy and relaxed silhouette. This women's fit pullover comes in three different colors with three different designs. Our black version has a bit of a sporty feel, the blue resonates with tradition, while the white version moves us forward. Something for everyone!

“Remembering to be as self compassionate as I can and praying to the divine that we're all a part of.” 
–Aaron

“Prayer, reading, meditation, walking.”
–Karen
“Erratically — which is an ongoing stream of practice to find peace.”
–Charles
“Try on a daily basis to be kind to myself and to realize that making mistakes is a part of the human condition. Learning from our mistakes is a journey. But it starts with compassion and caring. First for oneself.”
–Steve

“Physically: aerobic exercise, volleyball, ice hockey, cycling, sailing. Emotionally: unfortunately I have to work to ‘not care’ about people or situations which may end painfully. Along the lines of ‘attachment is the source of suffering’, so best to avoid it or limit its scope. Sad though because it could also be the source of great joy. Is it worth the risk?“
–Rainer

“It's time for my heart to be nurtured on one level yet contained on another. To go easy on me and to allow my feelings to be validated, not judged harshly. On the other hand, to let the heart rule with equanimity and not lead the mind and body around like a master.”
–Suzanne

“I spend time thinking of everything I am grateful for, and I try to develop my ability to express compassion for myself and others without reservation. I take time to do the things I need to do to keep myself healthy and happy. This includes taking experiential workshops, fostering relationships, and participating within groups which have a similar interest to become a more compassionate and fulfilled being.“
–Peter

“Self-forgiveness for my own judgments. And oh yeah, coming to Esalen.”
–David B.

“Hmm, this is a tough one! I guess I take care of my heart through fostering relationships with people I feel connected to. Spending quality time with them (whether we're on the phone, through messages/letters, on Zoom, or in-person). Being there for them, listening to them, sharing what's going on with me, my struggles and my successes... like we do in the Esalen weekly Friends of Esalen Zoom sessions!”
–Lori

“I remind myself in many ways of the fact that " Love is all there is!" LOVE is the prize and this one precious life is the stage we get to learn our lessons. I get out into nature, hike, camp, river kayak, fly fish, garden, I create, I dance (not enough!), and I remain grateful for each day, each breath, each moment. Being in the moment, awake, and remembering the gift of life and my feeling of gratitude for all of creation.”
–Steven
“My physical heart by limiting stress and eating a heart-healthy diet. My emotional heart by staying in love with the world and by knowing that all disappointment and loss will pass.“
–David Z.


Today, September 29, is World Heart Day. Strike up a conversation with your own heart and as you feel comfortable, encourage others to do the same. As part of our own transformations and self-care, we sometimes ask for others to illuminate and enliven our hearts or speak our love language.

What if we could do this for ourselves too, even if just for today… or to start a heart practice, forever?
