Esalen Institute

Esalen is a holistic retreat and educational institute. Established in 1962 and considered the epicenter of the Human Potential Movement, we are a non-profit offering comfort and space for exploration, transformation, and healing within the wilds of Big Sur’s majestic mountainscape and glittering coastline.

We are located in Big Sur, California. There’s the wonder of the place itself, 120 acres of fertile land perched between mountain and ocean, with hot mineral springs gushing out of a seaside cliff.
