Esalen

Esalen is not only a destination, it is a journey.

A lasting beacon
of the 60s cultural revolution in the West and deeply influenced by integration
of Eastern ideology and Western innovation, it is one of the world’s great
authentic retreats. An original modernconscious gem focusing on subjects such
as personal growth, meditation, best casino reviews massage, Gestalt, yoga, psychology, ecology, spirituality and organic food.

Set on the wild
coast in 120 acres, Esalen has been home to some of the greatest conscious
teachings of the 20th and 21st century.

Esalen has been
the platform for many of the great modern conscious thinkers, philosophers and
artists, from Fritz Perls to Bruce Springsteen, John Cage to Robert
Rauschenber. People from all over the world come to visit or eventually live
and work here.

“They come for the intellectual freedom to
consider systems of thought and feeling that lie beyond the constraints of
societal norms. They come to re-discover ancient wisdoms in the rhythms and
tides of the body, and poetry in the pulsing of life itself. They come to
rediscover the miracle of self-aware consciousness. Often they come away
inspired by a fierce desire to learn and keep on learning through all of life,
and beyond.”

Sigur Rós

Sigur Rós are the free spirits of the music industry.

Valtari, their sixth studio album, was launched to critical acclaim all
over the world. In their words they didn’t feel much like talking about it and so, instead, asked a
bunch of talented directors to make whatever they felt like making to go with the
music. Called ‘The Valtari Mystery Film Experiment’, these 16 films are the result.

Sad, funny, beautiful, and occasionally plain bewildering, they represent just some
of the available emotional responses to this most contemplative Sigur Rós
album.

One in particular stood out for us. Film 4: REMBIHNÚTUR by arni & kinski. A modern testimony to meditation. Breathe deep.
