Effective October 29, 2021 in accordance with new guidance from the Monterey County Board of Supervisors, all guests, students, staff, residents, and faculty are required to wear masks in all public indoor spaces on campus if the county is still in high or substantial levels of transmission. This guidance includes people who are vaccinated. Please review our updated COVID safety guidelines.
Letting go of entrenched ideas — of who we are, of how the world works, of our place in it — is a challenge. It takes energy. Time. Space. Security. This growth asks us to examine ourselves and understand our connection to the whole. This model of change encompasses both personal and communal, and it’s always been at the core of Esalen.
Self-Guided Explorations are an evolution of programming designed to function outside of the group structures of our workshops. These experiences are for those who want to immerse themselves in the peace, space, and natural beauty of our campus to do the work of their own personal growth. The beauty of our Big Sur campus supports serenity for the mind, the body, the spirit, and offers nourishment for all three.
