    Some years ago, I spent many days and nights on the edge of Earth — Esalen.

    Such a delicate balance existed — give & take, preserve & give up, community & solitude, dreams & manifestations, death & birth.

    Never was it a resort with a division of servers and those served. It was, and hopefully will remain, a glorious experiment, wabi-sabi, muddy, messy, perfectly unfinished.

    The operating structure felt seamless and quietly low key. Everyone, no matter the “role,” was giving & receiving.

    I hope the wise elders are available to describe all this to those newbies who may be limited in their understanding of what would be lost if the delicate balance is lost.
