What It's All About

Web of Change is where diverse leaders working at the frontiers of technology and social change come to up their game. Over five days, we candidly share front-line campaign experiences, reflect deeply on our impact and find the network and meaning we need to do transformational work. Web of Change balances professional development and technical skills sharing with relationship building.

Being at Web of Change reminds you why you do this work, and that you’re not alone.

The people doing this work are badass, brilliant and brave. If it’s possible to make change, these are the people who will be able to do it.

The Esalen Experience

Esalen Institute in Big Sur California is 27-acres of Pacific coastline paradise. At Esalen, we've found a remarkable, remote natural setting that's just a few hours drive from San Francisco and an hour from the Monterey Airport.

Esalen is a retreat center devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society. Watch this video to experience some of Esalen's great beauty.

Esalen provides accessible accommodation for guests with disabilities, though some property access can be difficult.

It was such a gift to spend time at Esalen.
