Workshop Details

With so much to get to, it’s easy to get caught up in all the doing. Let’s spend some time just being. Over the weekend there will be stories, games for the whole family, crafts for the kids, and time for everyone to be nourished by Esalen's healing land and waters. Saturday afternoon, we will offer a children's program, during which adults will be free to book a massage, enjoy some solitude, or spend time with one another. We will also explore the inner life with some mindful reflection on the path of fatherhood. Whether you have been coming to Esalen for decades or are curious to come for the first time, you’re invited to sit in a circle with us and make some memories.
This workshop is for anyone who is in the role of caregiver or father figure regardless of gender identity. This program is ideal for families with children ages 2-11 years old. If you would like to participate and you have children either younger or older than this range, please contact to discuss.
