Traidhos Wellness Programs

The monthly program of Traidhos Wellness Programs continues.

Last Saturday, VSP staff shared their love of the outdoors by offering both a local walk and a bike ride to anyone who wanted to enjoy the fresh air and gentle exercise.

The walk started at the back of the cricket field and meandered through the farm, then through orchards and the community forest land. Very quickly walkers felt that they were far away from campus surrounded by tall grasses, farm land and twirling lianas. Walkers chanced upon several gatherings of monks and local villagers paying respect to the forest and planting new trees in a local campaign to preserve over 700 rai of community forest land. The route also passed by agricultural ponds reminding walkers of the King's vision of sufficiency economy, and also through a small rubber plantation.

At the same time, another group of parents and children spent two hours exploring different tracks and pathways by bike. The heavy rain of the previous night did not deter them and they returned happy, if not slightly muddy, from their reconnaissance.

If you would like to join a Traidhos bike ride or ramble, please contact for further details.

For those who prefer less physical well-being activities, the Tuesday Applied Mindfulness sitting group, organised by ACAM continues each week at 1630-1730 in the classrooms near Chum Shop.
