Giving Back through Scholarships

“My Esalen experience was made possible through a scholarship and, for this gift, I am tremendously grateful. Here, I have been a teacher, student, nursery manager, farm hand, and irrigator extraordinaire. I have learned and honed skills that I will have for the rest of my life.”
– Molly Leebove
Farm & Garden Apprentice

Financial circumstances can be an obstacle for some who want to experience Esalen, and first-time participants may initially feel reluctant to make the investment of money and time. Scholarships help Esalen fulfill its mission by offering our tools and approach to a wider community. Scholarships help ensure that workshop tuition and accommodation funds are available to individuals and mission-aligned organizations who want an Esalen experience.
