Extended Study at Esalen

Extended Study One Year Programs at Esalen

Esalen offers a unique opportunity to extend your learning through a residential experience. During an extended stay, you are invited to grow, develop and become more fully yourself.

Through closer involvement with the Esalen community, we hope you will gain the additional skills and awareness necessary to take your inner work out into the world and help others transform.

Our Extended Study opportunity is designed to:

  • Provide you with a deeper understanding of Esalen practices to create awareness
  • Create new ways to foster connection and community
  • Support the integration of learning into real-life change – both at Esalen and beyond

Residential Study Program

Learn and serve at Esalen for 28 days and immerse yourself in a specific topic of study. This offering combines a rigorous course of study with the opportunity for deep relationship with the Esalen land and community. Participants must apply and be selected for the program.
