Miracle Qi Gong of Shaolin

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWe are a group of family and friends who started together an adventure to create a small local co-living project.
    We look after animals in need, we have a big organic garden and we contribute to the local community through charity work and teaching languages.
    We have a healthy lifestyle, we practice sport and eat vegetarian. In addition we organize regular lessons and conferences where anyone is welcome to join.

    The house is named "Miracle Qi Gong of Shaolin" because it sums up our philosophy and way of living:

    Shaolin: means "little forest" in the ancient teaching, which is related to the fact of helping each other and growing together as a forest does, the group makes the strength.
    Qi Gong: an ancient art linked to the human vital energy (Qi or Chi). Qi Gong is linked to vitality, energy and also to peace and meditation. We put everything together in balance.
    Miracle: once we have the 2 previous elements we say that we can make miracles happen together. That is why, among other actions, we do humanitarian, social and environmental actions to help whoever is in need.

    We look after rescued animals, at the present time our little family is:
    6 dogs
    5 cats
    80 birds
    14 chickens
    20 fish (aprox)

    For the volunteers who would like to commit time and energy with us and who want to learn about the philosophical and spiritual principles of our place, through the understanding of the Fao philosophy. We offer the Volunteer position that, in addition to the regular volunteer work, includes free lessons of Fao philosophy and sport.

    We need helping hands for the maintenance of the place and the work in our organic garden (depending on the season)
    You can help in different tasks: DIY, gardening, animal care, house hold and we are open any valuable skill you want to share.
    At the present time we are also needing help with our fundraising campaigns: for the volunteers you can join the on-site fundraising campaign at Poznan city and have a direct contact with the city and the locals of the town.

    In order to let our volunteers adapt gradually to our place and to allowed them to understand our philosophy we would like to stay in contact with you before arriving to our centre. We will provide with the first introductory explanations about the Fao philosophy for your information and adaptation to the place. It is highly recommended to go through this pre-volunteering experience in order to enjoy fully your stay with us.

    The volunteers can enjoy our place and the surrounding areas. There are very beautiful lakes and forests. And also the old town where they can have a cultural exchange with the locals.
