Esalen

GROUP

Visitor at the Esalen Institute, an ultra-exclusive spiritualist massage retreat for rich hippies located in Big Sur, California. Founded in 1962 by devotees to the Aldous Huxley-inspired "human potential movement".

"Esalen soon became known for its blend of East/West philosophies, its experiential/didactic workshops, the steady influx of philosophers, psychologists, artists, and religious thinkers, and its breaktaking grounds blessed with natural hot springs." - Esalen Institute website.
