EduRetreat, Singapore channelizes its energy to provide a platform to learn, share and assimilate from the global cultural diversity of philosophies and practices.

 

EduRetreat co creates rich provocations for intellectual, philosophical, spiritual, cultural, social, linguistic and aesthetic exchanges amongst educators and inspiring minds. EduRetreat is a traveling conference and aims at exchange of experiences through intimate dialogues between civilisations for two-way learning rooted in mutual curiosity and respect.

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
