Workshop Details

What is this delight-filled universe into which we find ourselves born? What is this mysterious awareness, shimmering everywhere within it? — From The Radiance Sutras

Come dwell in the luminous world of the Radiance Sutras, a poetic, sensuous version of an ancient meditation text for touching the sacred in the midst of daily life. The Sutras sing of passionate serenity, in which all your senses are alive to the vibrancy of the world, with a foundation of inner centeredness. In this tradition, meditation is a release into wonder and freedom. The emphasis is on being at home in your body and the universe. The Sutras offer 112 gateways into meditation including cherishing the flow of breath, gazing at the beauty of nature, listening to music, dancing, embracing emotion, making love, and many more. With artful guidance from Lorin and Camille, we explore a range of sitting, reclining, and moving meditations that anyone can do. Embraced by the earth, ocean, and sky at Esalen, this nourishing, life-affirming retreat is a chance to renew deeply and discover ways to meditate that you love and can take home.
