“Esalen is the spiritual home of transpersonal psychology, where psychologists like Abraham Maslow, Stanislaf Grof, and Fritz Perls developed their ideas. So many contemporary practices and ideas — from holotropic breathwork to ecstatic dance to somatic therapy to the idea of ‘spiritual emergencies’ — were born in that cultural incubator.
It is still going, 57 years later, which is a remarkable feat when you think how quickly and spectacularly other spiritual experiments went wrong.“
