The Esalen Kitchen

 This film was made during the Spring of 2012 in the Esalen Institute kitchen, to portray how the department works at that particular time. It does not represent the official opinions or views of the Esalen Institute as an organization.

The people in the video are extended students, chefs, staff and workscholars who work together to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner to an average of 300 people all year round at the Esalen Institute. What is special about this kitchen is that it is an educational kitchen while it maintains a high production and quality level. This kitchen has weekly process, in which work and personal issues are processed in a group setting with a facilitator, supporting a more relational environment. It serves daily the produce harvested by the Esalen Farm and Garden, complementing it with other organic and local sources.

Esalen is a place with a global reach. It is a place, as Thomas Wolfe said about America, where miracles not only happen, but where they happen all the time.
