Gatherings serve as the meeting point for holistic centers, both well established and new, dedicated to the new consciousness emerging worldwide.

Rural retreat, urban learning, sustainability or wellness centers, we’re all working toward the goal of awakening each other through transformational education and fostering a culture of greater holistic, ecological and spiritual awareness and practice.

The Gathering has been life-enriching and purpose-enhancing for me. The knowledge exchanged is invaluable. I feel inspired and empowered. It also comforts me to know that we share so much in common, even the challenges and issues both in our communities and in our societies of different cultures and political systems. I feel connected and supported both personally and professionally.

It’s amazing to know there’s a whole world of holistic centers and realize that Esalen Institute is not alone in this plight. The kinship, connection and support that flowed through the gathering and afterwards have been very inspirational and nourishing for my personal and professional development.

The Unique Value of Each Gathering

Most Centers are devoted to the creation of transformational experiences
for participants and there are inherent joys and challenges every day.

Coming together addresses the needs of those who run these organizations
for their own nourishment and community of peers.

Gatherings have been hosted around the world for more than 30 years;
from this strong foundation regional and virtual gatherings are now in co-creation.

Each gathering nurtures a sense of participation in the larger,
global movement of positive change guided by holistic values.
