Ecuador provides one of the most beautiful settings in the world to learn and discover a whole new way of thinking.In one of the most luxurious settings in South America your body will be pampered and your mind enlightened.

 

The Andes Institute, located in Cotacachi, Ecuador seeks to cultivate the individual genius of each participant. The readings used in the seminar are carefully chosen to stimulate thought, stretch the imagination and to reveal new truths about reality. We believe that we are all capable of extraordinary feats of creativity fostered by knowledge, wisdom and understanding. Using the Socratic method of discourse we encourage each participant to mine for the ideas within the readings and to share those ideas with their fellow participants. Within these ideas one often discovers new meaning and purpose leading to a deeper understanding of spiritual values that in turn inspires the creation of a life whose purpose and meaning directly contribute to making the world a better place: a place of peace, love, harmony and mutual respect for all life. We hope that you will join us.

The Andes Institute conducts seminars using the socratic method on subjects in the arts, sciences and humanities to foster a consilience or oneness in the quest for knowledge.

  1. After I turned 70 and retired the same year, I found my memory beginning to decline. My mind was not challenged except for a little cooking and mixing drinks. During my formative years, I had no formal education in science, physics or mathematics and the only reading I do now is business related.

    While some of the subject matter is over my head, I have found the Making Sense of Science Seminars stimulating. I had no prior studies in any of the seminar subjects discussed, but after attending the discussion on the Higgs boson or “God particle”, now when the subject is brought up in the media or casual discussion I have at least a basic understanding. He has since moderated discussions on the Ebola Virus, the science of GMO’s, NSA collection of data, the theory of Multiverse or multiple universes, Einstein’s famous E=mc 2 equation and lots more. I look forward to a future discussion on Fracking in the oil field.

    I especially enjoy the discussion following the seminar in the La Mirage bar. We can sort out all we heard in the seminar over a glass of wine.
