Since l962, Esalen® has offered an idyllic Big Sur, CA setting and a commitment to the exploration of "human potential", attracting world renowned philosophers, psychologists, artists, musicians and religious thinkers including Buckminster Fuller, Alan Watts, George Harrison, Ravi Shankar, Judy Collins and Joan Baez. Even today, 40 years after its founding, Esalen is still a beacon for the awakening of our "reservoir of untapped capabilities."

For 35 years the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California, has been an incubator of techniques that address the body, mind and spirit. Soon after its founding and up to the present day, Esalen, a self-described nonprofit center for experimental education, became the scene of developments and discoveries in psychology, group encounters and bodywork.

Founded in 1962 by friends Michael Murphy and Richard Price, the institute became the hub of the human potential movement in the 1960s. Today about 10,000 people come from around the world each year to experience Esalen's eclectic offerings.

The natural environment also includes mineral hot springs, known as the baths, adjacent to a massage deck that sits 50 feet above the ocean. It was there, on the deck, that bodywork pioneers came to Esalen and taught their techniques to others. Among them: Ida Rolf conducted training in her Structural Integration Method at the institute in the late 1960s. It was at Esalen that she personally trained a few people to be instructors of her technique.

You can bring the Esalen massage experience into your life or bodywork practice with the Esalen Massage DVD, with the acoustic instrumental CD soundtrack to the Esalen Massage program titled Harmony and also by visiting the Esalen Institute website to explore seminars and programs to suit your own needs. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of every Esalen Massage DVD is donated by At Peace Media LLC to the Esalen Institute.
