Esalen Institute                                          Big Sur, CA                                           Website

Esalen. The word itself summons up tantalizing visions of adventure, of unexplored frontiers, of human possibilities yet to be realized. There is the wonder of the place itself, 120 acres of fertile land carved out between mountain and ocean, blessed by a cascading canyon stream and hot mineral springs gushing out of a seaside cliff. There is the delicate and subtle Big Sur air of a late afternoon in May, the midnight mist of July, the drenching February rain. There are October nights so clear the Milky Way can light your walk along the darkened garden path. And always there is the sound of the sea.

Be adventurous and transform yourself during a weeklong retreat with Pura Vida Adventures. Our intention is to rejuvenate and to empower the mind, body and spirit through surfing, yoga and the “pura vida” way.

Pura Vida Adventures is about giving you a new experience and perhaps a new outlook on life.
