The Esalen Catalog, 1993-1997.
Esalen Inst., Big Sur, CA.
This document consists of a compilation of the 14 issues of "The Esalen Catalog" published during the 5-year period 1993-1997. An earlier compilation (ED 347 118 in the ERIC database) covering the 30-year period 1962-1992, describes the geographic location, history, and purpose of the Esalen Institute. Esalen provides a forum in which the various exponents of the human potential movement can present their ideas in weekend-long and week-long seminars and workshops. "The Esalen Catalog" provides a full description of these offerings, including brief biographies of the teachers and leaders of the sessions and, occasionally, essays on Esalen and on issues in the field. Because Esalen has been in continuous operation since the beginning of the human potential movement, its catalog may be regarded as an historical record of the movement's major schools of thought and major "gurus". Examples of some of the many topics represented in the catalog during this period are (alphabetically): Acupressure, Biodrama, Biofeedback, Breema Bodywork, Buddhism, Chakra Integration, Conscious/Lucid Dreaming, Cortical Reeducation, Craniosacral Massage, Drumming, Dzogchen, Enneagrams, Feldenkrais Method, Gestalt Practice, Hatha Yoga, Herbology, Holoenergetics, Holotropic Breathwork, Hypnosis, Integrative Body Practice, Ishta Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Life Energy Process, Lomi Bodywork, Massage, Meditation, Mysticism, Psychodrama, Qigong, Raku, Reflexology, Rubenfeld Synergy Method, Sensory Awareness, Shamanism, Somatics, SomatoEmotional Release, Sufism, Tai Chi, Tantric Yoga, Tao Mentoring, Therapeutic Touch, Vipassana Meditation, Vision Painting, Yoga, Zen, and Zero Balancing.
