Esalen Institute represents not only a retreat for self reflection and personal growth but also a source of sustainable farming that feeds the self-aware guests who choose to spend time here.
I leave Big Sur with an after glow of my spirit and sensory revelations. No other place in the world possesses such depth and delight. My years ahead will continue to embody the grateful gratification of Big Sur's greatness.
Please note that the Esalen Institute can be experienced by appointment only. You will find details of hours and operation of both locations at www.esalen.org and www.bigsurbakery.com.
