Sam Stern - Voices of Esalen Podcast Host

Back in the day

May 10, 2024
Andrea Juhan

In this conversation with Sam Stern, Andrea shares her experiences from those formative years at Esalen — how the dynamic and expressive environment fostered her deep interest in the embodied movement practices that would define her career. She reflects on the support of pivotal figures like Janet Lederman, Dick Price, Chris Price, Dean Juhan, Gabrielle Roth, her father, Dr. Jack Rosenberg, and the Esalen massage crew of the 1980's. We also get into catharsis, trauma, holotropic breathwork, Open Seats, the original encounter groups, the genesis of Open Floor, and much more.

Join us as we delve into a thoughtful discussion on the healing powers of movement and the continuous journey of self-discovery.
