Where Workshops are group-oriented and instructive, EduRetreats are intimate and exploratory. I'm excited to welcome you into a salon-style space, designed for caring collaboration and personal inquiry. Shake off your daily stresses and experience a natural flow of learning through tactile interactions with intelligent people and materials. Leave feeling refreshed with new connections, ideas, and vitality for change. 


Multi day lux-style experience

If you have a vision for responsive teaching with concepts, materials, and experiences but could really use sustained time to play in the pedagogies firsthand, an EduRetreat is for you. Gather with knowledgable inquiry facilitators who put themselves into questions, who lead from the heart as well as the head, and who aspire to nourish learners and their unique journeys from the inside out. We can't wait to meet you!
