About the Program

Shoshin is a Buddhist concept describing a beginner's mind—what it looks like when someone embraces a mentality that allows them to be open to all possibilities. It encourages both childlike discovery and letting go of any assumptions previously held.

Remote Year Shoshin is a community of professionals that lived, worked, and traveled through Europe and Africa together for 4-months in 2018. Participants came from all different companies, nationalities and backgrounds, pursuing goals from starting their own business to making a life change.

The Itinerary

August in Valencia, Spain

Valencia provides a quality of life which is impossible to quantify. From the stunning architecture to the river park, there is creative energy and a vibe that will delight you during your month here. Valencia enjoys more than 300 sunny days a year, which matches the Valencians’ positive outlook. Mix this with some tapas, a siesta, and a trip to the beach. What else do you need?

September in Sofia, Bulgaria

"Sofia, Bulgaria deserves to be highlighted as an incredible place to live and visit. It is beautiful yet affordable, deliciously sweet yet savory, and has an all-around good vibe. It needs to have songs written about it and be on everyone’s bucket lists. But to make it kitschy which would take away from the very essence of Bulgaria’s capital, and I’m jealously guarding this place for myself. Stay away." — Casey Carr-Jones, Remote Year Magellan, 2016-2017

October in Cape Town, South Africa

Then head to Cape Town, South Africa. This city offers a multicultural, complex, and contrasting city sure to capture a piece of your heart. Spectacular vistas and world-class beaches surround a city that enjoys delightful weather, year-round. Here you can find some of the friendliest people in Africa sharing their history, acclaimed wine region, spirit for adventure, and so much more.

November in Prague, Czech Republic

"Prague is beautiful (...) the city is large, cosmopolitan, and distinctly European. I thought (...) that it would be small and manageable, but everywhere I turn there's a restaurant I want to try or a festival happening or another museum, beergarden, park, or church to explore. I also thought the food would be heavy and fried, so I've been surprised at the number of brooklyn style coffee shops, vegan restaurants, and Indian, and Vietnamese food places. The restaurant downstairs serves juices, acai bowl, and aloo gobi sandwiches, and the brewery down the street serves zucchini noodles and carrot chowder. Our workspace is a former embassy and feels regal. We have a library, a sprawling garden in the back, a yoga room, and a neighboring park. (...) Everywhere you turn -- local area, tourist area, historical area, run down area -- is beautiful and has a past." — Aashima Kapoor, Remote Year Kaizen, 2017-2018
