If you’ve been sent this link, a space has opened up in the Space Between Stories course at Esalen this fall. You can register in the form below.

The dates are October 30th- November 4th.

VERY IMPORTANT:  You will need to contact Esalen directly to arrange and pay for your accommodations with them separately from this registration. You can find out more information about what Esalen offers for room/board at this link. The reservations office at Esalen can be reached at 831-667-3005, or 888-837-2536.  Use the password “The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible.”

To help you with planning, here are some details to consider:

  • Check in at Esalen is any time after 3 pm on Sunday, October 30th
  • We have created a closed Facebook group in advance of the retreat to help you connect with other participants, arrange for ride-shares, etc. This Facebook group will continue after the retreat is over to serve as a place to stay connected with other participants and deepen relationships made there.

Feel free to email Marie Goodwin (marie@sacred-economics.com) with any questions or needs.

The Space Between Stories - Esalen

  • With this form, you are paying a deposit to reserve a spot in the program. You will then have to call Esalen directly to reserve a room. We do not do this for you automatically. The cost for the event itself will be determined by YOU, upon its conclusion. Here is what Charles says about it:

    Our planet needs to transition from a paradigm of self-interest maximization and extraction, to a paradigm of gift. In gift culture, the giver does not dictate what the return gift shall be. There is a release of control.

    At a retreat last year, a woman said to me, "Charles, I just attended a retreat with a top life coach superstar who charged ten thousand dollars, and your retreat is much more powerful. Why don't you recognize your value?" I explained to her that I am fully aware of the value of what comes through me and coalesces around me. In fact, any amount I charge is both too much and too little. Too much, because I don't want there to be any kind of barrier. Too little, because how can I put a finite number on something that is sacred to me? That is why I like to allow the receiver to determine the return gift.

    At the end of the retreat, you will have the opportunity to decide an appropriate return gift for the event. You are welcome to choose zero (the deposit is refundable at the event); it is up to you. My team and I have no expectations. You are free.
