Workshop Details

Join internationally recognized teachers to weave together ancient wisdom traditions of Tantra and meditation with modern neuroscience. Think of Tantra as a loom—the framework for weaving together the threads of body and soul, spirituality and sexuality, and individuality and universality.
This workshop is designed to expand your understanding of sexual energy to bring about the deepest transformation, joy, and healing. You will be taught simple yet potent meditation and tantric practices to experience the nature of ecstatic vibration as an energy that can be channeled and transformed to bring about greater states of health, creativity, and vitality. You will also learn about revolutionary research in neuroscience that offers this hopeful message: We can change and reshape our brain to live lives of greater energy, ecstasy, compassion, and joy. As a group, we will immerse ourselves in the practice of being fully present, re-training our minds, hearts, and bodies toward pathways of greater sensual aliveness, greater compassion, gratitude, and joy. Esalen’s natural beauty will support us as we engage in sunset meditations, listen to the sounds of the ocean, walk through the vibrant gardens, and open ourselves to the wildness and wisdom of nature. This workshop will deepen our connection with ourselves, one another, and the larger web of life. Be prepared for unexpected delight.
Note: This is an experiential, fully clothed workshop.


A global network of seekers devoted to the belief that we are all capable of the extraordinary.
