All 2023 seminars will take place at the conference center Notre Dame de Grace in Rochefort-du-Gard in the south of France.

Located 15 minutes from the city of Avignon, the Avignon TGV train station has direct high speed train connections to Paris downtown (2h30) and the Paris CDG airport (2h45 min), Lyon downtown and the Lyon Saint Exupery Airport, as well as Amsterdam, Brussels, Barcelona, Frankfurt, Geneva and Madrid. Other nearby airports include Marseille and Montpellier.

All seminars contain a mixture of presentations by invited speakers, contributions by participants, discussion sessions, time for individual meetings, and organized excursions to cultural sites with direct relevance to the seminar theme. In addition to stimulating the intellect, we also wish to nurture well-being more holistically. The historic and natural beauty of the conference site, French cuisine and patrimony, as well as time for reflection, spiritual enrichment and developing new friendships are key ingredients of the program. Seminars are held in English.
