Partnering for Positive Change

In a time of complex changes and challenges, Esalen serves as a powerful catalyst not only for personal transformation but social transformation as well. We are proud to support and partner with like-minded organizations who share our commitment to create a new paradigm for positive social change.

The Wellbeing Project

Borne out of the experience of a social entrepreneur and Ashoka Fellow, the Wellbeing Project models support to social change leaders and helps cultivate a shift toward healthier inner wellbeing. In 2014, Esalen became a co-creator of the Wellbeing Project alongside Ashoka, The Fetzer Institute, and Synergos. Esalen has helped to develop the curriculum of the 15-month program in addition to serving as one of three locations for Wellbeing cohort retreats.

Web of Change

Web of Change (WOC) is a dynamic community that connects and supports leaders working at the frontiers of social change, specifically technology. Since 2001, WOC’s annual gatherings have created a deep trust network to provide leadership, innovation, and whole-person support within the field. Esalen is proud to host WOC’s annual conference during which participant-leaders share experiences and reflections in an atmosphere of radical openness and collaboration.

Wisdom 2.0

The Wisdom 2.0 movement addresses the great challenge of our age: to not only live connected to one another through technology, but also to do so in ways that are beneficial to our own well-being, effective in our work, and useful to the world. Wisdom 2.0 Unplugged is an annual retreat at Esalen.
