The Esalen Institute, Big SurClaimed

Ayurveda Retreat in Big Sur, California, USA


We’re a holistic learning and retreat center. With a playful spirit and fierce intellectual honesty, we ask big questions about the world and our role in it in a spirit of optimism and with a tenacious belief in human potential.

You won’t find easy-to-digest self-help workshops — but you will find world-class instructors, an unforgettable landscape, and support and safety for doing the challenging work of transformation.

Be a leading center for exploring and realizing human potential through experience, education, and research.
 Work toward the realization of a more just, creative, and sustainable world, seeking answers to questions unlikely to be explored by traditional universities and religions.

Sponsor pioneering initiatives and offer personal, spiritual, and social transformation programs for residents, interns and workshop participants.

Esalen is a major catalyst in the transformation of humankind, working with individuals and institutions to integrate body, mind, heart, spirit, and community in a nurturing relationship with the environment
