A Taste of Anthropology

A 9-Day Anthropology Retreat in Bali 

with Professor Burlingame

Wednesday, May 18, 2022 - Thursday, May 26, 2022

Applications Are Being Accepted Now!


Bali is a tropical island province of the country of Indonesia.  It is located in the Indian Ocean east of Malaysia, west of Papua New Guinea, south of the Philippines and north of Australia.  The people of Bali are largely Hindu, with Muslims, Christians and Buddhists also living on the island.  Indonesian, Balinese and English are spoken in Bali.  The main ethnic groups include the Balinese, Javanese, Bali Aga, Madurese and Sasak.  The island itself has been inhabited by humans for approximately four thousand years.  It was a favorite research location for American anthropologist, Margaret Mead.


Professor Burlingame will only be hosting five people on this anthropology retreat.

This anthropology retreat is for ambitious and adventurous adults looking to engage in meaningful travel where they will learn, relax and grow in profound ways -- both personally and professionally.

All accepted students will be adults aged 18 years or older.  Both American and international students are welcome to apply.  All levels of anthropology enthusiasts are also welcome to apply.


On this anthropology retreat, you will have the opportunity to learn more about yourself and gain personal and professional insights through exploring anthropology in this beautiful and ancient cultural region.  The approach will be four fields so you will get to explore human history (archaeology), language (linguistics), culture (cultural anthropology) and biology (physical anthropology) in an integrated and hands-on experience in Bali.


Monday through Friday, you will begin your mornings with yoga and/or breakfast before joining Professor Burlingame for lectures, discussions and activities that will help improve your understanding of yourself and the people around you.

Afternoons will start with lunch and then you will break off from the group to complete individual projects that pertain to your personal goals for this retreat.  

Evenings will begin with dinner and end with music, dancing and socializing.  

Weekends are free for you to schedule as you please in the Balinese countryside.  However, you may find that relaxing in nature near the pool, enjoying home-cooked meals and ordering a massage may be the height of your weekend plans.

♦The Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary

♦An Indigenous Farm
