This is mainly research material that actually needs to be expanded.. heh (I'm looking at you @isthisreality )
Major aspects of pizzagate have already been tied exhaustively to the CIA: The Washington Post, John Podesta, the residents of the Comet PingPong neighborhood, etcetc. Esalen is linked to Tavistock, an organization already infamous for developing mass mind control techniques. Esalen is also connected Centersgathering ring, Findhorn/ Psychosynthesis /ARK/ ClintonFoundation. FBIanon may have been alluding to this area as part of the massive web of corruption that (might?) get exposed if Hillary does.
Esalen also collects a huge amount of research by CIA and MKULTRA doctors. Odd for a nudist resort mentioned in wikileaks, which "Sponsored Boris Yeltsin’s first visit to the United States, immediately after which he resigned from the Communist Party.."
Tavistock mentioned in reference to the founding of Esalen:
Sunday dinner Wikileaks email, calls Esalen as a "futuristic think tank" discussing topics like "Writing the next chapter of Capitalism":
So, the point: there ware a surprisingly high number of doctors known to have been involved with the MKULTRA program or CIA listed at Esalen:
Experimented with LSD and Electroshock Experiments on children.
"LSD and UML Treatment of Hospitalized Disturbed Children"
Documented at Esalen:
Her work also includes:
"The body image of schizophrenic children following electroshock therapy." PMID: 14923820
Treatment of autistic schizophrenic children with LSD-25 and UML-491.
Article on Bender: "Electroshock and LSD: Child Experiments"
"The Hidden Tragedy of the CIA's Experiments on Children"
D. Ewen Cameron:
Cameron worked at the Allen Institute at McGill, another famous CIA institution. His experiments were so bad, that victims later sued the CIA and were given some compensation.
"The Sleep Room"
From his wiki page: "He has been criticized for administering electroshock therapy and experimental drugs to patients without their informed consent. Some of this work took place in the context of the Project MKUltra mind control program.

B.F. Skinner :
Skinner visited Esalen and his work is also catalogued there. He developed operant conditioning - the "Skinner Box." This included electrocution and flashing lights. (cough skippy video)
"Modern operant conditioning chambers typically have many operanda, like many response levers, two or more feeders, and a variety of devices capable of generating many stimuli, including lights, sounds, music, figures, and drawings. Some configurations use an LCD panel for the computer generation of a variety of visual stimuli.
Some operant chambers can also have electrified nets or floors so that shocks can be given to the animals; or lights of different colors that give information about when the food is available. Although the use of shock is not unheard of, approval may be needed in countries that regulate experimentation on animals."
Skinner at Esalen
Louis Joylon West:
"...West did his psychiatry residency at Cornell University, an MKUltra institution and site of the Human Ecology Fund. He later became a subcontractor for MKUltra subproject 43, a $20,800 grant by the CIA while he was chairman of the department of Psychiatry at the University of Oklahoma. The proposal submitted by West was titled "Psychophysiological Studies of Hypnosis and Suggestability” with an accompanying document titled “Studies of Dissociative States".
"One of the more unusual incidents of West's career came in August 1962, when he and two co-workers attempted to investigate the phenomenon of musth by dosing Tusko, a bull elephant at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Oklahoma City, with LSD."
"He performed Jack Ruby's psychiatric evaluation, and he was in charge of UCLA's department of psychiatry and the Neuropsychiatric Institute for 20 years. He was also active in anti-death penalty activism."
Joylon West at Esalen
I am not sure whether Jacques S Gottlieb documented at Esalen is related to the CIA Sidney Gottlieb- but Jacque's work is horrifying in any case.
Jacques S Gottlieb at Esalen:
"Sensory isolation: hallucinogenic effects of a brief procedure."
"Sleep Deprivation: Effects on Behavior, Thinking, Motor Performance, and Biological Energy Transfer Systems."
"Psychopharmacologic Study of Schizophrenia and Depressions: VI. Differences in Response to Sodium Amytal and Benzedrine Sulfate.
"The Electroencephalogram in Psychopathic Personality."
"Autonomic Response Patterning of Chronic Schizophrenics.
"Among Isbell’s reports of his chemical experiments, he boasted, according to Marks, of having kept seven men on LSD for 77 straight days"
Isbell catalogued at Esalen -
"Comparison of the reactions induced by psilocybin and lsd-25 in man."
"Primary among these physicians were Drs. Harold A. Abramson, Paul Hoch, James B. Cattell, Joel Elkes, Max Fink, Harris Isbell and Alfred Hubbard. "
Harold A. Abramson at Esalen:
"Dr. Fink, who was greatly admired by Bender, is considered the godfather of electroshock therapy in the United States."
Max Fink at Esalen:
"Differentiation of psychotropic drugs by quantitative EEG analysis".
Skinner's Box helps to explain topics that have already been brought up re: MKULTRA, as well as more bizarre pieces of the puzzle such as the "fatherhood" Skippy video. The surreal flashing lights, and bright colors sound like something straight out of the description of a horrible human version of a Skinner's Box.
It also makes sense that Adam Crabtree of Esalen specializes in Dissociated Identity Disorders.
"Adam Crabtree is a psychotherapist in private practice, specializing in dissociative identity disorder and other dissociative disorders... He is author of Multiple Man: Explorations in Possession and Multiple Personality "
Ed Kelly* Another central figure at Esalen currently. He works in "he used EEG and fMRI neuro-imaging techniques to study somatosensory cortical plasticity in humans... His central long-term research interests, which revolve around mind/brain relations, and functional neuro-imaging studies of altered states of consciousness and psi."
