5 DAYS AT ESALEN, WOMEN IN TRANSITION: Climbing into Your Authentic Self


  • Esalen Institute 55001 Highway 1 Big Sur, CA 93920 (map)

Your house is on fire. Your boat is sinking. What do you want take with you? What are you happy to watch sink or go up in flames?

This workshop will help you make these decisions so you can navigate change and rediscover your most authentic self. In your authenticity, choose what you desire rather than what you think you’re supposed to do or what others want from you. Turbulent times are a call to adventure. Embark on a mythic journey with a transformational blend of rigorous and restorative Hatha yoga, purposeful writing, deep relaxation, and guided meditation and ritual. Women in Transition gives you the time, space, and tools to ride the wave of change. You’ll learn strategies and rituals for embracing a deeper connection to your higher self. Come spend the weekend in the beauty of Big Sur, interweaving nature, ceremony, and a healthy dose of humor into the fabric of who you are. The yoga and writing is for all levels. Please bring a yoga mat and bolster if you have one, a journal and an item that symbolizes your deepest, most authentic self. We will create an altar for the week (and the item will return home with you).

With these spacious five days, we'll take in the beauty and power of Esalen's natural world, soak in the healing mineral waters that can wash away what needs to be released and be deeply nourished by food prepared by a world-class kitchen.
