An Update from Esalen
In light of the current spread of COVID-19 and in adherence with current direction of the importance of social distancing at the local, state and federal levels, Esalen Institute has extended our temporary closure through May 9, 2020. We hope to re-open at a reduced size and capacity beginning Sunday, May 10, 2020.
We know this decision impacts many in our community — our guests, our faculty and our own staff. However, we also know that it is our collective responsibility to put the safety and wellbeing of our entire community as our priority.
And while we are living in a time of uncertainty, what is certain is that Esalen leadership is doing all that we can to ensure we do re-open and continue our mission of realizing our human potential. If ever there was a time for us to go beyond our limiting beliefs, that time is now.
On behalf of the entire Esalen community here in Big Sur, we extend to you our heartfelt thanks and warm wishes for your own health and wellbeing.
