The Esalen Institute, Big Sur Reviews - Write a Review
Went with friends several times doing a "personal retreat". Extremely unique beautiful place to do that and only about 90 minutes from my house. The one friend had done full workshops in the past and so led us to do personal retreats along with him. The site takes your breath away with its beauty. The food was copious and delicious though definitely not conventional. Esalen has a half-century history as the arguable starting point of the human potential movement. You can do a personal retreat for however many desired days without doing workshops. A whole mix of people. Clothing optional hot springs.
I GO HERE TO GET MY CHAKRAS REBUILT --- AND THE MINERAL HOT SPRINGS --- THOUGH TOO MANY SAME SEX BATHERS THERE --- IF YOU GET MY DRIFT ???
It would be very, very hard to describe in words this place. For one thing, it's one of the most staggeringly beautiful places on Earth. For another, it's made of its wonderful, crazy, delightful people. Clothing-optional hot springs and the broad range of workshops make this one of the most special places anywhere. Go if you have any way to do so!
A remarkable experience - the setting, the food, the people, the baths, the insights make for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Can hardly wait to return to this epic healing place of natural beauty and uplifting workshops Stephen Harper runs a brilliant wilderness hiking workshop that we will return to, again and again to enjoy, both on the inner and outer.
