Workshop Details

The farther back you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see. — Winston Churchill
Every decade brings new challenges, goals, pleasures, and horizons. Surprisingly, the essence of what we may become, the voice of our future, is already resonating in us. We invite you to explore some novel ways to think about your possible futures, and listen for the echo of promises and potentials still unfulfilled.
• Where are you in your journey?
• Who goes with you?
• What have you accomplished?
• What’s old, stale, worn-out, or boring?
• What hasn’t happened yet?
• What will be your legacy?
Experience an in-depth weekend of looking back and forward during this condensed What’s Next? workshop with Sam Keen and Patricia de Jong. This philosophical exploration of the path forward provides tools for looking at our future as a community and as individuals.
On Saturday evening, a special feature will be a conversation with Sam Keen and Esalen co-founder Michael Murphy to remember the wisdom, folly, and contribution Esalen has made to expanding the human potential. What we learned…and didn’t. The conversation also celebrates a long friendship and Sam’s 50th year as a treasured Esalen contributor.


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.


Make a difference and leave a legacy by becoming a Friend of Esalen.


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