Esalen is reopening March 1. Book a workshop or A Time to Reflect now.


The Esalen Bookstore

Adjoining the Lodge at the heart of property, the Conley Bookstore offers a plethora of retail items for purchase, including sweatshirts, hats, chocolate, drinks and more. However we encourage guests to bring journaling, writing materials, a yoga mat, props and/or blanket.

Take note of the following safety protocols:

  • There will be a designated entrance and exit to the Conley Bookstore. Look for the arrows that are 6 feet apart, which indicate which way to move through the bookstore 
  • At this time, “testers” and card decks will not be available to sample or peruse
  • We will no longer accept cash
  • Guests no longer need to turn in room keys to the office upon check-out. Please leave your room key in the guest room upon check-out.


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.
