SANGHA Retreat by OCTAVE, Suzhou, China


After a gap of more than three years, The AT ONE International Conference is back in Spring 2024! This year, we bring a theme of ONE CHOICE, ONE WORLD!

After a period of deep reflection on the purpose of life, we are awakened to how inter-connected we are to all life. Opportunities always unveil itself from crisis. Let us make that one choice to shift consciousness, to build one world for a better future for humanity!

It is time for us to unite to with one common worldview, one common ground, for us to have common sense, so we put together common effort to resolve our common challenges.

Come, join the conversations, the movement and embrace the collective awakening—and have some fun at the same time at the 2024 AT ONE International Festival.


It is the brainchild of Chavalit Frederick Tsao a fourth-generation family business steward, who has transformed the business from a conventional shipping company to a multinational business serving Asia′s industrialization and trade globalization.

Staying true the family′s core sustainability value of continuous evolution to serve the era, Chavalit is now elevating this value to new heights. Starting from a small research institute, East West Cultural Development Center, in Singapore in 1995, Chavalit is now on a conscious evolution to bring about business reform and build a collaborative community that will positively impact the well-being and happiness economic era.

Chavalit started the AT ONE event in November 2018 as a platform for knowledge exchange, learning and celebration of life! The AT ONE International Conference brings together thought leaders from a wide range of disciplines to the AT ONE International Festival organized and held in Sangha Retreat by Octave in Suzhou, China.

AT ONE International Conference


The Era Has Arrived, the Future is NOW

Challenges are opportunities for evolution and co-creating a new future. How can we turn the chaos to our advantage and see it as an opportunity to create a more sustainable future? Fundamentally today′s sustainability challenges are result of a consciousness crisis and problem of ethics. We need inner work, a journey inward will shift consciousness, worldviews, beliefs and values that informs our desires to drive economics. A new way of living, with well-being and happiness as the common objective will share new economic activities. This new model requires a new playing field with new economic structures.

The future is now, it is time to work on integration of cultures. What would life look like and feel like in this new era and how do we co-create it? Every one of us has a part to play in this paradigm shift. The 2024 AT ONE International Conference with the theme One Choice, One World, invites you to join the conversations, the movement and embrace the collective awakening—and have some fun at the same time!
