EduRetreat is an initiative based in Singapore to learn, share and assimilate diverse philosophies and practices through curated, small group travel.
Today it is a call to action.
EduRetreat offers intellectual, philosophical, cultural, linguistic, and aesthetic exchanges among scholars who are iconic and legendary. As a traveling (un) conference EduRetreat participants exchange intimate dialogue with one another and the people, projects, and places visited. As a group, participants learn through each individual’s own curiosity and mutual respect.
Since 2008 groups have made trips to Singapore, different regions in India, and most recently Brazil. The purpose is to cross-fertilize cultures and philosophies while retaining each culture’s distinct strengths. The process expands participants’ worldview. EduRetreat Varanasi, India is planned for February 1 - 15. Future venues will be EduRetreat Amazon, September 1st 2020 and EduRetreat Nile, September 1st 2021.
More and more I feel that the capacity for trust, wonder and continued curiosity depends on the experiences of early childhood.
The trip to India reawakened all that for me - color, sound, taste, delight, wonder and trust.
- Dr. Mary Catherine Bateson, Cultural Anthropologist, Reflective Guide EduRetreat 2013
We build relationships by inspiring participants to:
Move beyond the known
Make the world their classroom
Stretch their capacities as influential thought leaders and change makers
We make what we learn visible by:
Sharing and assimilating other philosophies
Provoking mindful exchanges
Reflecting, rejuvenating, and rejoicing
Removing barriers to the new and the different
Supporting one’s own internal and external dialogues
Supports worthy projects
Spreads break-through ideas
Makes learning visible in published words and images
Sparks our own or our followers action
Seeds good ideas so they generate research and alliances
