Best Midlife-Crisis Trips
Reconnecting at Esalen, Big Sur, CA
Why Go Now: Since
the ’60s, Big Sur’s Esalen Institute—devoted to the “exploration of human
potential”—has satisfied many a wanderer in need of change, including Allen
Ginsberg, Joseph Campbell, and Joan Baez. Programs—anywhere from 2 to 28
days—in East/West philosophies, spiritual reconnection, and humanitarianism are
geared toward enhancing the ever-popular mind-body connection. A weeklong soak
in the center’s natural hot springs, overlooking the Pacific from a Big Sur cliff, can be just as healing.
