My most recent adventure, I visited a magical little gem in Northern California, The Esalen Institute. A center for exploring and realizing human potential through experience, education, and research. Their mission is to work toward the realization of a more humane and all-embracing world. Esalen exists to serve the world, not as an escape from it. Nestled between the mountains and the ocean on a stretch of land where you can simultaneously feel the grounding of the sacred earth and forrest while listening to the sounds of the rolling waves on the ocean. There is a natural hot spring that encourages the appreciation of the human body by offering a space where clothing is optional. It was here that I had a moment of breakthrough realization.
