A Time To Reflect

Extraordinarily Simple

Sometimes all you need to realize your fullest potential is time and space.

A Time To Reflect is a gift of self-care; a self-structured "workshop" that gives you the opportunity to do as much or as little as you like.

Like our regular workshops, A Time To Reflect runs over either a weekend (Friday through Sunday) or a week (Sunday through Friday). Each day you are free to choose among Esalen’s unique gifts: our natural hot springs, daily movement and meditation classes, weekly evening programs, lovingly prepared meals (often featuring organic produce, freshly harvested from our garden), and twenty-seven acres of spectacular grounds.

You could … dive into your next creative project or finish a work-in-progress. Meditate for hours in the streamside meditation roundhouse, volunteer in the farm and garden, or bring that stack of books you’ve always wanted to read. Treat yourself to a massage or other healing modality each and every day, or even twice a day.

Or, you could just … let your beingness be.

Nourish your mind, body, heart, and soul by treating yourself to the best of Esalen.
