Workshop Details

Our hearts know it, because we have seen it, experienced glimpses of what life and the world could be. Yet as individuals and a society, we carry habits and programs of the old and dying Story of Separation. We cannot easily know how to get from here to there; often, we doubt what we have seen. This retreat is a deprogramming from the old story and an immersion in a new (and ancient) story. It crystallizes a next step toward the world we know is possible. It engages a great power within you, and it will inspire a hope that comprehends the full situation on this planet.

Note: For this workshop, participants will pay Esalen for accommodations only. The course fee is self-determined. At the end of the workshop, participants will choose a tuition amount that reflects their feeling of value, gratitude and desire to support Charles Eisenstein and his ongoing work.
