BENEFITING: Esalen Institute

EVENT DATE: May 15, 2013

THE STORY:

Esalen changed your life? Be the extraordinary change you wish to be and help others do the same. Make a gift to the Esalen Fund and help sustain all aspects of the Esalen experience and feel even more gratified knowing that 10% of your donation will support scholarship and financial aid. Your gift supports:

    • Creation of a robust scholarship program to support young people and underserved groups experiencing Esalen for the first time.

    • Farm & Garden educational initiatives that empower people to integrate sustainable and healthy practices into their own lives and share with their communities.

    • Exploring the next evolution of conscious business, citizen diplomacy, human evolution, and spirituality.

    • Improving campus facilities that provide an optimal physical setting for the important work of individual and social transformation.

    • Reducing Esalen’s carbon footprint through a 5-Year Sustainability Action Plan.

Please give, be a Friend of Esalen and join our team of CrowdRise fundraisers.

Make a gift $5,000 and it will be topped-off with an additional $1,000 gift. An anonymous donor will do this up to 10 times for Esalen!

Time and again we hear stories of how Esalen has changed, even saved, lives and is helping to create a more humane and all-embracing world. It’s become all too easy to talk about transformation—to turn it into an empty, generic promise. That will never be the case at Esalen. 

Now, you can support individual and social transformation directly. Click "Fundraiser" to join our fundraising team, or "Donate" to give whatever you can.

Rooted in the profound beauty of Big Sur and an unparalleled intellectual history, Esalen has served a global network of seekers, people like you, who are interested in moving beyond dogma to explore deeper spiritual possibilities; forge new understandings; and inspire deep change in self & society. Esalen has offered experiences that are lovingly imagined, intensely relational, and open to spontaneity. 

A non-profit retreat center and an educational institute for over 50 years, Esalen Institute has served as a leading center dedicated to exploring and realizing human potential.
