• Esalen Legacy and Visiting Teacher programs,
• Upledger Institute courses,
• Healing from the Core and
• Healing the Pelvic Floor, an annual women’s retreat.

A Message From Suzanne

With deep sadness, I must let you know that my courses will not be held at Esalen this year. The Big Sur area where Esalen resides will not open fully until October 1st due to very limited access from winter weather conditions that buried roads and washed out Pfeiffer bridge.

Fortunately, you have two brand new options available for being on one of my Healing From the Core circles this summer. Visit our new 1440 Multiversity page to learn more about these courses, to be held in the redwood forests in Scotts Valley, California, near Santa Cruz.

We’re working on scheduling our Healing From the Core courses at Esalen for the summer of 2018, and will post that information as soon as it is available.

My other annual course at Esalen, Healing the Pelvic Floor, will also return to Esalen in 2018. Scroll down for more information, or see my women’s workshops page for more information about this course and its upcoming dates at all venues, from Esalen to Asheville, NC.

And, Enjoy!
