Our workshops are led by visiting faculty who represent a spectrum of disciplines, experiences, and perspectives. Done in a group setting, the workshops are designed to support you in the challenging work of self exploration. Scholarships are available for those who need extra financial help coming to Esalen.

Our Self-Guided Explorations programs are designed for those who wish to do their internal work outside of a group setting in a slightly less structured program held by an Esalen staff member or a visiting teacher. Scholarships are also available to those who choose this option.
