Is Esalen Expensive? Can I Afford to Come?
To encourage people of all financial abilities to participate in the magic and mystery of Esalen, we offer a wide array of accommodation options as well as short- and longer-term programs to suit every need and budget. Participation in the 28-day Work Study Program is possible for as little as $41/day, and for those wishing to participate in weekend, 5-day or 7-day catalog workshops we additionally offer work exchange, need-based financial scholarship, and discounts for seniors.
