Esalen is reopening March 1. Book a workshop or A Time to Reflect now.


A Time To Reflect

Unique times create unique opportunities — like the one to enjoy Esalen’s Big Sur campus without attending a workshop. Right now, we have a limited number of spaces available for people to enjoy Esalen in an unstructured way. Shape your own personal retreat among the lush gardens and sublime ocean views with very few people around. Limited gathering sizes means lots of time to sink into your favorite book, journal, or yoga mat with the inspiring beauty of the California coast as your backdrop.

Stay dates for A Time To Reflect are flexible and guests may schedule their arrival any day Monday through Friday with a two-night minimum. Currently, Sunday night stays are not offered.

Reserve A Time To Reflect for:


We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.


Experience twenty-seven acres of Pacific coastline paradise.


Make a difference and leave a legacy by becoming a Friend of Esalen.


A global network of seekers devoted to the belief that we are all capable of the extraordinary.
