No cell signal, no problem. Even Silicon Valley tech titans need an occasional break from the information overload of modern life. Just a couple hours down the coast at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, they find it. For a half-century, free-thinkers, industry leaders and academics have gathered here to discuss, debate and work on issues facing humankind, analog-style. Focusing both on self-improvement and societal improvement, Esalen remains a refuge for reflection and growth. Watch to see what makes this place so special.
