Altered States: Pathways to Expansion – Eselan Institute in Big Sur, CA

September 9 - September 13

A Unique In-Person Workshop with Stacia Butterfield, Marques Redd, and Andrew Holecek at the Beautiful and Renowned Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA – September 9 – 13, 2024

We humans are curious and since time immemorial, think deeply about non ordinary states of consciousness. This fall, embark on a weeklong campus-wide transformative journey of self-discovery with Esalen community as we delve into the depths of the mind through African ritual and sacred art, dream and sleep yoga modalities, and Holotropic breathwork.

This annual program is a unique opportunity to explore our capacity to reach an altered state of consciousness, expand awareness, and tap into the uncharted realms of the mind through our breath and body. Together with leading edge faculty: Marques Redd, Stacia Butterfield, and Andrew Holecek — through an amalgam of pathways we will experience how when we alter our state of consciousness we can shift personal and global challenges into individual and collective opportunities.
