somatic movement founders esalen workshops

“founders” the teachers and innovators who were teaching at that time, such as Rolf, Lowen, Selver, Whitehouse, and Pearls, had their own origins in earlier cycles, but it was the larger cultural atmosphere of the late 1960’s, especially around such germinal places as the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, which had a powerful effect in bringing their work together and presenting it in a new way … The human potential workshops were replaced first by the spiritual trainings of the ’70’s and later by tightly programmed workshops which promise to increase personal effectiveness of one kind or another. Workshop participants today have more specific goals than they did in the 60’s and early 70’s.
