Into the Fire: The Sun Celebrates Personal Writing
Esalen Institute, Big Sur, California
October 21 – October 23, 2016

To write about our lives in a way that affects others and affirms our common humanity, we must be willing to leap — with all our passion, fear, and longing — into the fire. We invite you to join Sun readers, authors, and staff for a weekend of celebrating the written word.
