The UniYatra Group, founded by Ameeta and Craig, promotes educational, cultural, and community-building outcomes, working with individuals and organizations to provide cross-cultural and human-centered learning, products, and services.
Thai Language and Culture Instruction
The UniYatra Group offers individual and group Thai language instruction (basic through advanced; speaking, listening, reading and/or writing) as well Thai cultural orientation/relocation training. We tutor in person in Northfield or online via Google Chat or Skype at very reasonable prices and with flexible schedules. Tutorials are suitable for the serious student or for someone who wants a crash course in survival Thai before visiting this beautiful country.
Educational Travel Tours
We enjoy sharing travel experiences with our participants, and we find the best way to do this is through small groups (of four to six people) that share common interests. We then tailor the itinerary to those interests, making connections with local organizations to offer an intimate and insightful "connection" with the host culture. (We have also offered travel tours to groups as large as 18 people.) We specialize in group travel to Thailand, Japan, and Laos.

of integrity as seen and told by ordinary people. The authors encourage people not only to
observe the many acts of integrity around them but also to discuss what they have observed
with friends, family, and colleagues. In addition, this book helps readers discover the hidden
dynamics that sustain integrity and provides suggestions for encouraging integrity in our lives.
||Judy Hyland set out for China in 1940 to work as a missionary teacher. Because of the worsening
war situation, she was directed to the Philippine Islands. When the Japanese invaded the
Philippines in December 1941, she was interned, and lived in various prison camps until liberated
by the American military on February 4, 1945. In the Shadow of the Rising Sun documents,
in part, this experience.
