Today, we seek more from work and life – more meaning, more purpose, a greater sense of integration, and wonder and awe. This workshop, one of our most popular, will mix science, practice, dynamic exercise, and art to guide participants toward posing questions about the meaningful life and paths toward finding it as Modern Elders.

We will focus on a family of states central to meaning and integration: awe, wonder, curiosity, reverence, and a sense of transcendence. Each of these core themes will be illustrated with science, wisdom of the ages (e.g., Buddhism, Taoism, ancient Greek thought), and dynamic, interactive exercises. With our AWEsome team you will experience a wide variety of methods to develop your personal sense of wonder and everyday Awe.

What you’ll do

Lo que harás

The MEA core curriculum forms the foundation of each workshop we offer and is focused on equipping you with the skills to navigate transitions, break through life obstacles, and tap into your deeper life purpose. Additionally, in this particular workshop, expert faculty Dacher Keltner will take you on an interactive and life-changing journey that will inspire you to:

  • Reintroduce yourself to the experience of Awe.
  • Discover how to add awe, wonder, and curiosity to your resources.
  • Dive into the science behind the feeling of Awe.
  • Explore Awe’s ancient wisdom, art, and movement and enliven your body, mind and spirit.
These workshops unearth your innate wisdom, transforming your authentic essence and life experiences into profound insight that will unlock your hidden potential as you embrace the next beautiful chapter of life. MEA’s all-inclusive tuition is $6,000 for a private room or $4,500 for a shared room.

This price includes all programming, lodging, meals, beverages, and excursions. We offer generous financial aid for many programs.

Themed in-person workshops are grounded in research based upon collaboration with academics and prestigious institutions like Stanford, UC Berkeley, Harvard, and Yale. Guest faculty weeks feature a chance to experience a deeper dive into their unique content paired with our MEA experiences.

Learning at all stages of life is the glue that drives us to purpose, community, and our evolving wellbeing. Make a commitment to staying healthier, continuing to grow, having an open mindset, and giving back to the world. Instead of “lifelong learning”, we believe “long life learning,” creates a life that is as deep and meaningful as it is long.

Los talleres presenciales temáticos se basan en investigaciones realizadas en colaboración con académicos e instituciones prestigiosas como Stanford, UC Berkeley, Harvard y Yale. Las semanas con profesores invitados ofrecen la oportunidad de sumergirse más profundamente en su contenido único combinado con nuestras experiencias en MEA.

Aprender en todas las etapas de la vida es el pegamento que nos impulsa hacia el propósito, la comunidad y nuestro bienestar en evolución. Haz un compromiso de mantenerte más saludable, seguir creciendo, tener una mentalidad abierta y devolver al mundo. En lugar de "aprendizaje de por vida", creemos que "aprendizaje a lo largo de la vida" crea una vida tan profunda y significativa como larga.

Food & Beverage

This area attracts chefs from all over the world to explore “la costa del sabor” (the coast of flavor). The culinary tradition in the Todos Santos/El Pescadero area is well-known as there are few places in the world that have more celebrated restaurants per capita than our location. Most people who move to the area say that the culinary scene is part of the reason they chose to make this home.

The cuisine of northern New Mexico is renowned for its unique blend of Native American, Spanish, and Mexican influences, resulting in dishes that feature bold flavors and a rich cultural tapestry. All meals, beverages and alcohol are included in the cost of the workshop.

Alimentos y Bebidas

Esta área atrae a chefs de todo el mundo para explorar "la costa del sabor". La tradición culinaria en la zona de Todos Santos/El Pescadero es conocida, ya que hay pocos lugares en el mundo que tengan más restaurantes aclamados por los habitantes de nuestra ubicación. La mayoría de las personas que se mudan a la zona mencionan que la escena culinaria es parte de la razón por la que eligen hacer de este lugar su hogar.

Chef Tony Peralta sources local ingredients, including fresh produce from our organic garden, to bring the best flavors of Mexico and beyond to our plates each day. Our cuisine leans toward healthy, but that certainly doesn’t preclude a few delicious indulgences. (Plus the occasional margarita if you choose to imbibe). All meals, beverages, and alcohol are included in the cost of the workshop.
