GREAT KNOWLEDGE IS A DESTINATION

BALI – THE ISLAND OF GODS

At the center of Indonesian archipelago, just south of the equator, between the Indian and Pacific oceans, lies the island of Bali. Unparalleled in its combination of physical beauty and ancient culture, it is known as the Island of Gods. Multiple forms of artistic creativity flourish in Bali: dance, drama, gamelan music, painting, woodcarving among them. Beautiful Hindu temples dot the island, surrounded with terraced rice paddies and bamboo forests, with wild monkeys roaming some of them.
The Balinese are hospitable, warm, and welcoming people. Their lives revolve around colorful ancient ceremonies and processions, conducted in temples, in the villages, and on the beaches. Their cuisine is unique in its ingredients and cooking styles. English, Japanese, and other major languages are commonly spoken, so communication is easy.

Bali’s iconic appeal and strategic location makes it an ideal meeting place for colleagues from every corner of the world. Bali is close to Australia and New Zealand, to China, Japan, and South Korea, with multiple non-stop flights.

Numerous flights are available also from many European cities, some of them non-stop. Americans and Canadians can fly to Bali from New York, Los Angeles, or Vancouver with only one connection.

JIMBARAN

Our workshop will take place in the southern part of the island, in the fishing village of Jimbaran. Unlike the better known Kuta, which is often overrun by tourists and surfers, Jimbaran offers a combination of comfort and tranquility. It has excellent hotels and restaurants of every category, but not so many as to overwhelm the environment.
It sits on one of the most beautiful beaches in Bali, with the hotels either right on the beach or within a short walk from the beach. Most of the hotels are within a short walking distance from the conference space where the workshop will take place. In the evenings seafood dinner is served at seaside restaurants on the tables set up right on the beach.
Jimbaran is located within a short taxi ride from Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport and within easy access to the main cultural and natural attractions on the island. The program is designed to allow the participants to combine learning in the morning with cultural activities, tours, or just going to the beach in the afternoon.

Numerous sightseeing and cultural programs, and extension tours to other parts of Indonesia will be available through local travel agencies. Or you can spend the afternoons in lively, informal discussions with colleagues from all over the world on the beach, in a lush tropical garden next to the beach, or in a nearby restaurant over drink.

The ability to network and exchange ideas with the colleagues from diverse countries and parts of the world is a unique opportunity provided by our program.
