About us

Esalen Massage is a moving meditation, a practice in presence and mindfulness, and a loving healing art. When practiced with focused attention, massage comes from a deep, quiet place that resides inside each of us. The practice of meditation can help access the parasympathetic nervous system, where healing originates. As we give a massage, this healing state of mind can permeate the field that practitioner and receiver create together.

In guided sessions, we will explore the practice of sitting meditation to prepare and quiet our minds, walking meditation to bring awareness to our movement, and the fundamentals of Esalen Massage as a meditative practice in giving. There will be time for supervised practice each day, as students exchange massages, with the support of the teachers.

Beginners as well as seasoned practitioners are welcome for this week to explore Esalen Massage and meditation, while enjoying the natural beauty of the Esalen grounds. This workshop is especially useful for those in the helping and healing professions in working with their clients and patients.
