We are now ready to invite you, along with a select group of your Montessori colleagues, to a new kind of life and learning experience -
The BluLotus Retreat Conclave.

We want every Retreat participant to experience . . .
1. Personal renewal, rebalancing, and healing
2. Reconnect with dear friends and colleagues and have a chance to nurture new relationships
3. Have an opportunity to share and take in fresh ideas on important topics
We believe the first two Retreat experiences are the most important. Therefore, we want you to know that from our perspective, regardless of what's on the program, you have the freedom to do whatever best meets your needs throughout the weekend.

A couple of years ago, at the Montessori Foundation/International Montessori Council Conference, Andrew Kutt, founder and Executive Director of the Oneness-Family School, and Jonathan Wolff, Montessori consultant and leadership coach, were relaxing around the pool at the Hyatt Regency in Sarasota . . . enjoying the warm, tropical breezes and a gorgeous, late afternoon sunset.
We can’t recall who first had the idea – the vision of a retreat center for Montessorians - but the image of a beautiful, peace-filled natural setting, where teachers, school leaders, students, and families can relax, renew their spirits, reconnect with friends and colleagues, redefine their mission and goals, and create new paths of learning and service – well it really grabbed us!
That was the birth of the BluLotus Retreat Conclave.
We believe that when a group of well-intentioned Montessorians come together in a retreat-like setting, the potential for personal transformation, renewal and healing, the cultivation of powerful partnerships and innovative ideas become more likely.
We view the first BluLotus Retreat Conclave as the very beginning of a journey that will eventually take the form of a permanent retreat center for Montessori learners and leaders from around the world.
We hope you will join us on our maiden voyage!
Andrew and Jonathan
Making sure all Retreat participants feel safe and stress-free is our top priority. As some retreat attendees may not be vaccinated - either by choice or by lack of access in their home communities - we will NOT require Retreat participants to be vaccinated. However, according to prevailing health conditions nationally at the time of the Retreat, attendee preferences, and the configuration of our indoor work and play spaces, we reserve the right to require people to wear masks and socially distance indoors, with the exception of meals. We plan to ask the Highland Lake Resort whether meals can be consumed outdoors - for greater safety and comfort. Please feel free to contact us if you have additional questions or concerns about health and safety at the Retreat.
