friends of esalen A


s a Friend of Esalen, you can help ensure Esalen’s place in the world. It is through the generosity of friends like you that Esalen


can continue its mission of developing human potential. Your support not only benefits current programs, but also helps secure Esalen’s long-term financial future. Donations are tax-deductible and provide support for sustainability initiatives, intern programs, our organic farm and garden, the Gazebo Park School, special projects, and Esalen’s visionary Center for Theory & Research.


As a way of showing our gratitude, Friends who donate $50 or more will receive a $25 reduction on all catalog workshops for the next twelve months. Donors will also receive the Esalen Catalog and a triannual Friends of Esalen newsletter for one year, and will be eligible to book a Personal Retreat at Esalen. Many Friends choose to make Esalen a part of their long-range plans by including a bequest or deferred gift to Esalen in their estate plans. A chari- table bequest is one of the easiest ways you can make a lasting difference to the Institute.
