Just back from the Esalen Institute in stunning Big Sur on the California coast where I had the pleasure of studying, working and playing with Ann Randolph and Johnsmith. Esalen is an institution for higher consciousness and fosters "change in self and society" to make for a better YOU.
Here you will find like-minded spirits, delicious organic food, wonderful hot springs, a pool and breathtaking surroundings to help nurture your soul. There is a little something for everyone and if the prices seem daunting, sign up for a work study program and immerse yourself in the Esalen culture. This is what I hope to do in the future.
It is the perfect place to experience the true essence of California.
