Workshop Payment


If possible, please pay full workshop fees at the time of reservation. To reserve a space in any workshop, we require the following deposits:


Weekend: $150 5–7 day: $300


Deposits paid by credit card will automatically have the workshop balance drawn from your credit card five days before arrival. Deposits are payable in US currency only; overseas residents must pay by checks drawn on US banks or credit cards. Deposits are nonrefundable.


Esalen Cancellation Policy: If you cancel or change any part of your reservation at least seven full days before the start of your work- shop(s), your nonrefundable deposit, less a $75- per-workshop processing fee, will be transferred to an Esalen credit account to be used within one year.


If you cancel a workshop with less than seven days’ notice, you forfeit your entire deposit. If you have prepaid your entire reservation fee, we will retain the deposit and refund you the balance.


If you cancel a Personal Retreat reservation at least 7 days before your reservations date, a $75 processing fee will be charged for each reserva- tion (per person) and the remaining balance will be refunded. If you cancel with fewer than 7 days notice, you will forfeit the price of one night’s lodging (per person).


Esalen may cancel a workshop due to low enrollment.


Cancellations must be made by phone with one of our reservation staff. “Seven full days” means by Sunday before a Sunday workshop, and by Friday before a Friday workshop. Donations to the Friends of Esalen are nonre- fundable. Esalen may cancel a workshop due to low enrollment two weeks before the workshop start date. You may either switch to another workshop, come for a Personal Retreat, or get a refund.

Gazebo Park School is an on-site, state-licensed, outdoor preschool program for children from infants to age 6. This program is available during the week to children of seminarians, workshop leaders, personal retreatants, as well as Big Sur families. The school offers children the opportu- nity for full immersion with the natural world through its rich, child-centered park environ- ment and ecology-based curriculum. Gazebo Park School’s low teacher to child ratio allows for individual attention. Activities include car- ing for the school’s animals, gardening, harvest- ing fruits and vegetables, cooking, expressive arts, literacy activities, dramatic play, and excur- sions to explore Esalen’s unique campus. Children may be enrolled for a half day, full day, or several days while here at Esalen. Gazebo Park School hours are Monday-Friday, 9:30 am– 4:30 pm. Qualified childcare providers may be available for parents taking workshops outside of the Gazebo Park School hours. For more information and to enroll for Gazebo Park School, please call 831-667-3026. To ensure space in the program, we ask for at least one month advance notice for enrollment.
