Workshop Details

Celebrate summer in the land of rejuvenation with the world-renowned Banana Slug String Band. We will use music, theater, puppetry, poetry, arts, and games to deepen our connection to this magical earth. The program will culminate in a performance by the budding children stars and the Banana Slug String Band. Together we’ll create a community of families to laugh, connect, and renew as we explore dance, harvesting and eating delicious organic food, hiking among the redwoods and stream on the Esalen grounds, a night walk, stargazing, parent education workshop, and plenty of time to soak in the baths. (Be sure to check out the movement classes offered at Esalen each morning to start your day). Take the time to drop into your sense of wonder and reestablish your loving bond with each other and the earth. This workshop is open to children of all ages. A parent or guardian must accompany participants under 18 years old.


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.
