Healthy School, Healthy Students A Holistic Education Workshop, Chiang Mai, 19th-20th September 2014

Healthy School, Healthy Students
A Holistic Education Workshop

by Dr. V. Ananda Reddy & Deepshikha Reddy
September 19 – 20, 2014; Chiangmai, Thailand

Workshop Aim

The workshop aims at providing the participants not a new system of education or even an alternative to the present systems prevalent in each country, but to focus on deeper insights into an integral personality development of the “healthy students”.
The “healthy school” does not focus on the path that leads the students to success in this highly technical and competitive society, but on self-perfection which shows a student the way to a psychologically integrated and enlightened human being capable of a balanced and harmonious life.

Course Fee
Baht 11,500 per participant.

The participation fee for this workshop has been subsidised by Knowledge Source Institute to promote the idea that schools are responsible for a child’s entire well being, not just their academic success.
