About us

If you are looking for another way to grow, in a unique container different from the traditional workshop, please join us for an Esalen original series: Conversations on the Edge. We have invited selective voices to speak to some of the most pressing issues of our time in a vibrant forum of lecture, Q&A, and idea sharing. In How We Gather: The Rise of the Unaffiliated Community, we will engage in short lightning talks by visiting teachers and skilled content experts who will share information about the changing way America is choosing to connect and create community. Visiting teachers include Angie Thurston of Harvard Divinity School and co-author of How We Gather, who will lead short but impactful lecturettes that end in Q&A and conversation among the audience. A Friday reception will kick off the weekend, and on Sunday participants will share a closing brunch for self-directed conversations and check-in. Scheduled gathering time will be significantly less than traditional workshops to allow for participation in movement and meditation classes, healing arts and hot springs, and the natural beauty of Esalen. Presenters are subject to change.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To reconnect with my inner self, found ground through the movement of my body and breath. Awake. Jane
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
