TRACK TWO IN THE NEWS
Our organization, known today as "Track Two," has undergone several changes in name since its inception in 1980. In the early years our program existed under the umbrella of the Esalen Institute, an organization we still work closely with to this day though we became an independent organization in 2003.
In the following articles you may see Track Two referred to as the Esalen Soviet-American Exchange or The Russian American Center (TRAC).
We invite you to read more about Track Two's history here.
