Preidlhof in the Italian South Tyrol has introduced a series of transformational wellness programmes and retreats under the direction of award-winning spa director and transformational wellness coach, Patrizia Bortolin. Following months of research, she has expanded the wellness concept she designed for Preidlhof: ‘The Preidlhof Way’ with her hallmark ‘Glowing Flow Lifestyle’ philosophy integrating medicine, holistic experiences and spiritual well-being.
The concept is based on the latest neuroscience research which embraces two types of wellbeing: hedonic and eudaimonic. Aiming to bring balance between the two, eudaimonic wellbeing is said to be achieved when one confronts one’s past, with healing while striving to reach a higher purpose with the community. In eudaimonic wellbeing, learning and introspection are valued, and health care and prevention are addressed. Hedonic wellbeing is said to be experienced in joy, in beauty and feelings of release and unbridled self expression.
