About

Thinking, to most human beings, is as natural as breathing – involuntary and congenital. But not everyone is a thinker. This Thinkers’ Retreat is for every person who thinks of oneself as a thinker – someone who engages in conscious and systematic mental activity.


Take 7 days off from life to learn the nuances of right thinking through the lenses of philosophies from across the world.


Hit the obvious discovery of infinity as you unfold yourself alongside over a hundred other thinkers from around the world.


Enjoy the surprise element of the incredibly engaging content of philosophies and their practical implications from across the world – with a new text every year.


Experience what it feels like to hit a reset button on life and be equipped with unprecedented clarity.

About Facilitator

Nidhi Chaitanya is a subjective scientist, inspirational-speaker, writer, blogger, poetess and social media influencer. She is an idea-archeologist who excavates ideas and philosophies from around the world, polishes them & presents them as relevant to modern lives. She picks ideas from Greek mythology, from Hindu textbooks, from Islamic scriptures and releases them from the overarch of religiosity and brings their relevancy to modern life, because she feels that the efforts of the thinkers of the past should not be bound by the barriers of religion & time. She is often seen as the connoisseur of the antiqued yet timeless scriptures “Geeta & Upanishads“ and decrypts them for the modern society through several online and offline courses, talk shows and residential retreats. Nidhi Chaitanya frequently writes for print & digital media platforms like Mumbai Mirror, Speaking Tree and Youth ki Awaaz, and is currently working on her much awaited book-series. She has addressed as a keynote speaker in some of the top institutions and many national events.

Nidhi Chaitanya’s passion for knowledge adds a new freshness to her work on a continuous basis. She is currently studying World Religions with Harvard University and Philosophy & Critical Thinking with University of Queensland, Australia. She has the unique capacity to bring philosophical and cultural authenticity into millennial conversations on entrepreneurship, digitalisation, adulting, dating, drugs, parenting, sustainability, egalitarianism and other contemporary topics. She formally facilitates this in her live talk-show -‘Conversation’. The first season of the show has just concluded at the popular venue - Above the Habitat, Mumbai. She is also the winner of the Woman Gamechanger Award and a Tedx speaker.

FAQ’s

What exactly will happen at the retreat?
There will be workshops, discussions, debates, conversations, lectures, activities, games, reflection and meditations.

Why is it so expensive?
It is not. For a 7-day trip with all the facilities in a 5-star hotel, this is a highly subsidised rate.

Are there any hidden costs?
The fees includes lodging charges, breakfast, lunch, dinner, study material and tuition fees for 7 days. Any additional cost such as travel, local tourism, etc are not included in the fees.

Why are you charging GST?
That is the law of the land we operate from. We don’t earn anything out of it.

What if I cancel after registration?
As soon as you book with us, we already book your place at the hotel. So, we will not be able to offer any refunds once you register. But we will use your contribution to sponsor an eligible young thinker (below 30) for the retreat

. Will the retreat include tour of places of interest in Jaipur?
We will not offer any tourism facilities as part of the retreat. However we will give one day off for those who are interested. But we strongly recommend you plan you Jaipur vacation after/before the retreat days by extending your stay suitably.

If I take shared accommodation, can I choose my room partner?
Yes, you may mention your suggestion in the registration form, and we will be happy to place you both together.

Are there cheaper triple-sharing or dormitory facilities?
No, this is a 5-star hotel and we will not be able to offer any such facilities.

What will the food be like?
It will be simple vegetarian Indian food, and we will try and keep it healthy with plenty of salads and fruits.

Will Vegan food be available?
Yes, we will try and keep at least one vegan item in every meal. In addition, you can order vegan food a-la-carte as per the rates on the menu card.

How will the travel be organised?
The flight details of the faculty will be shared with all participants and everyone can book accordingly.

What is the starting and ending time of the retreat?
The retreat begins on 13 July 2019 at 3pm and ends on 20 July 2019 at 12pm. Please plan your travel accordingly.

How far is Shiv Vilas from the airport?
It is about 1 hour by road. Ideally keep a window of 1.5 hours to be safe. Traffic in Jaipur can be unpredictable on certain days.

What will the weather be like?
It will be very hot. But the resort is fully air-conditioned and so it should not be an issue.

Can I attend the retreat in parts?
Yes, but you will still need to pay the full fees as we will any way need to block your place for 7 days at the retreat. Also, this retreat is for systematic thinking, so it will obviously not be ideal to attend the retreat in parts. But if you wish to, kindly mention your dates of attendance in an email to info@NidhiChaitanya.com
