Our 2020 Esalen workshop — Live Blue: The Seven Ages of Water — is on July 17-19th.
Space is limited to 25 participants, so sign up ASAP!
This workshop is part of our 2020 celebration of ten years of building a global Blue Mind groundswell. We will hold ten independent BlueMindx mini-summits, workshops and events throughout the year focused on various topics in many locations.
Water covers more than 70 percent of our planet, makes up a similar percentage of our brains and bodies, and is the basis of all life. But the true cognitive, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual health benefits of water are only now being fully comprehended and embraced.
Blue Mind, the best-selling book by Wallace J. Nichols, ignited a movement of blue mindfulness, a state of consciousness that explores the interrelationship of humans and water, and creates a new water story that bridges science, ancient wisdom and real-world solutions to the challenges of our time. Over the course of the weekend, we will explore the science and practice of how our relationship with water changes and evolves during the seven ages of our lives: birth, play, the lover, the fighter, the justice, ebb and flow and death.
Join us at Esalen, where rivers meet the ocean and fog hovers over hot springs in a sacred confluence of water, to explore blue mindfulness and its capacity to heal both ourselves and our own wet planet.
(A $25 materials fee will be added to the workshop cost.)
