GSN Planet Partners With Esalen Institute To Present The Healing Arts Webinar Series

August 18, 2020–GSN Planet (GSN) has recently partnered with the Esalen Institute to bring webinars to the wellness community dedicated to personal and professional healing and growth during the post-COVID 19 world. Esalen Healing Arts is introducing a selection of its faculty and partners to provide this conversational and thought provoking webinar series to stimulate and raise awareness amongst our ever changing wellness landscape.

“We are very excited to collaborate with GSN for this opportunity. We are looking forward to bringing some unique perspectives to the discussion through our esteemed faculty and friends,” says Doug Drummond, Director of Healing Arts and Somatics at Esalen Institute.

Esalen sees human potentials being experienced and integrated by increased levels of consciousness and self governance. Rather than seeking experts and authorities to work on us, Esalen Healing Arts’s approach is about working with each other as human beings with increased potential as we meet in the present moment and listen, love and respond to what emerges naturally.

For the next few weeks, this new webinar series will meet virtually on GSN’s Zoom platform every other Thursday at 2:15pm Eastern Time/ 11:15am Pacific Time. The next webinar, entitled “Unearthing Our Values”, will take place on August 20 and will feature Vitalist Institute’s CEO Jeffrey Williams. To register, visit GSN Planet’s website at
