Esalen has an extensive video library available for loan to guests during their stay with us. We do not currently have an on-property librarian or archivist, though we hope in the future to have resources to provide this support.
Please use the links below to browse titles either by category or by speaker (alphabetical by last name).
Make note of the program ID number, speaker name(s) and title of any video you would like to view. When you arrive at Esalen, fill out a request form in the front office. Although we cannot guarantee the turn-around time, DVDs are often ready to pick up in the office in 24 hours.
You are responsible for returning DVDs to our media library within 48 hours. DVDs may not be duplicated or externally distributed in whole or in part without written permission from Esalen.
This guide to the Esalen video lending library is made possible through the generous support of the Roy A. Hunt Foundation.
