Volume li, Number 2 Join Our 50th Year of Expanding Our Sense of Humanity W


ith this catalog season Esalen moves toward the climax of our 50th Anniversary Celebration events. Today humankind faces unprecedented challenges and exciting new opportunities to create a world of sustainability,


humanity, and justice — the living promise of our creative human potential. Over the past 50 years Esalen has led the way in developing the new tools and practices that equip us to address these challenges in ever-new ways, and evolve, adapt, and lead in an ever-shifting, always open-ended future.


In areas ranging from experiential education, lifelong personal growth and development, sustainability and permaculture, integral leadership and organizational transformation, relationships and intimacy, citizen diplomacy and social change, this catalog offers building blocks for deep shifts in consciousness and windows into your own personal curriculum: adventure, healing, and new tools for transformation in your life, and in our shared world.


This catalog also brings you your special invitation to join us for Esalen’s 50th Birthday Celebratory Benefit Weekend (inside cover, p. 63, and www.esalen.org), a unique 4-day event this year, with an all-star roster of speakers plus the stimulating company of your fellow celebrants. Don’t miss this one-time milestone extravaganza event! Also check out the four- day period leading up to the Birthday itself (p. 62), when Esalen will feature a special series of days in honor and celebration of our remarkable past and our equally amazing present — and most of all in full embrace of our shared, exciting future.


Always remember that the limits of the life we can create and the world we can build together are set only by the limits of our ideas and our imaginations. Join us this fall and anytime to nourish yourself and your journey with this rich feast of offerings, adding the flavor of your unique experience and perspectives to this creative flow. Celebrate, learn, and recharge! See you soon at Esalen.
