Esalen Is Closed
Esalen Institute will be closed to the public March 15, 2020 for four weeks in response to the California Department of Public Health’s guidance on social distancing to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, otherwise known as the coronavirus.
This decision was not made lightly and we appreciate your understanding.
While there is no current case of COVID-19 at Esalen, our goal is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our guests, faculty and staff at Esalen and for all our friends beyond our campus. Although we realize this will be a disappointment to many of our guests, we believe this is the right thing to do.
There is much we do not know about this situation, and yet we do know the importance of supporting each other in a time of uncertainty. We encourage you to stay connected with us on social media as we look to new ways to nourish our community.
