It is our great displeasure to announce that manager Daniel Cryns was also summarily terminated in Thursday’s “restructuring” action. Daniel’s tenure at the Institute, while not as long as Eric’s or Kathleen’s, was marked by a profound respect for Esalen’s cultural heritage and a special facility with words and actions both. This combination, well regarded by the community at large, could not have been more unpopular with the power elite. Like his peers, Daniel was given the heave-ho without notice.
