Esalen one more time
For those of you who don't know anything about Esalen, here's what the brochure says:
Esalen - a convergence of mountains and sea, mind, and body, East and West, meditation and action
Esalen - a center for alternative education, a forum for transformational practices, a restorative retreat, a worldwide community of seekers
Dedicated to exploring work in the humanities and sciences that furthers the full realization of the human potential, Esalen offers public workshops, residential work-study programs, invitational conferences, and independent projects that support its mission
As a center designed to foster personal and social transformation, Esalen offers those who join the chance to explore more deeply the world and themselves.
For me it's all of those things and more.
