Workshop Details

Give your significant other or good friend a wonderful gift of touch. Enjoy the serene beauty of Big Sur as you and your partner learn how to give one another an effective Esalen Massage. A tender touch can do wonders for any relationship by easing stress, releasing tension and deepening nonverbal communication skills. The workshop focuses on how to pay attention with heart and hands, ask for what you need, and take the time to truly nurture yourself and your partner. Sessions will include basic quieting exercises, movement, brief demonstrations, hands-on guidance and plenty of time for practice. At each session, following a demonstration and warm-up exercise, couples will exchange massages.

Join us for a pleasurable time of relaxation, renewal and re-connection with your partner. There will also be time to enjoy the magic of the Esalen grounds, the healing waters of the hot springs, and the natural beauty of the Big Sur coast.

Please bring an open heart, your favorite music for massage and/or dancing and a good sense of humor.
