Tao Garden Health Resort
This booklet is a guide that will help you find your way in this beautiful
setting, with its tropical fruit trees and plants, streams, the sweet
smell of flowers and the songs of birds, frogs, geckos and other small
animals. In this guide you can find general information about Tao
Garden, its environment, and training schedules. Tao Garden is part
of the little village, Ban Talat Mai, which is situated in the Luang
Nua area, part of the Chiang Mai District.

Doi Saket is a bigger village in this area, not
far from Ban Talat Mai. When you come on the main road from Chiang
Mai to Tao Garden, you can see a huge Buddha on your right side
over looking the valley of Doi Saket toward the mountains of Northern
Thailand. It is a wonderful area for an excursion on a Saturday
or Sunday afternoon by bike, motor scooter or car.
A serene learning and healing environment, Tao
Garden Health Resort is set on 80 acres (40 hectares) of fertile
grounds adjacent to the foothills, waterways, and forests of the
Eastern Himalayas. The water, which brings life to Tao Garden, flows
down to us from the mountains through streams and irrigation canals.
Decorative fountains gush forth throughout our grounds. For your
health, the water from our underground spring is passed through
reverse osmosis and charcoal purification systems of the highest
standards. It is made available in multiple locations convenient
to the living and meditation areas, and in the Dining Hall.
