To ensure good health: eat lightly, breathe deeply, live moderately, cultivate cheerfulness, and maintain an interest in life.
The Traidhos Wellness Programs address the provision of space and activity to sustain each person’s well being, supporting our belief that to move towards a sustainable community, we need to provide opportunities for personal fulfilment, happiness and wellbeing.
The vision of learning as a Three-Generation Community is often played out through the provision of wellness activities. Past events have included family days on the Three-Generation Farm, family buke rides and short family walks close to campus.
The Traidhos Wellness program responds to the interests of parents and community members. There has been a history of personal workshops, talks, opera concerts in the amphitheater, meditation, mindfulness, cooking, yoga and tennis welcoming people from Chiang Mai, those visiting the nearby resort Pavana, Prem parents and extended family members. Programs may be facilitated by Traidhos staff, community members or visiting speakers.
Sponsored events have resulted in a celebration of Grandparents day with the Thai community and a residential event with grandparents and grandchildren from many provinces in Thailand joining together to learn with and from each other.
Wellness activities take place in many of the learning spaces around campus including the Three-Generation Farm, Traidhos Cooking Academy, Village Classrooms and open air halls.
Please contact the Head of Community email@example.com with ideas of programs that you would like to participate in or are willing to lead.
