Creating a Community

Chen Style Taijiquan Practical Method

Dear fellows,

I also want to announce it here, especially as our Taijiquan is a very central part of our life, that we are up to create a new community within the international township of Auroville, South India.

This should become a self-sustainable project, including training facilities, farming and all sort of arts, music, handcrafts etc. But more than that we want to follow certain core values and a lifestyle quite different from the mainstream. A lot of that we did have already during our first two years in Auroville, but still some things where always missing, and we feel it is time to bring those pieces together.

Please check the post on our personal blog to see if you resonate with this, and in case get in touch with us. Of course, me and Sarah both prefer to have some Gongfu brothers and sisters living with us. This community should become an active place!

Check it out here:

Besides, best wishes to you all from South India, looking forward to share more soon about or ongoing Taiji classes. For legal reasons,  to teach officially was not possible during our first period as “Newcomers of Auroville”.

BTW: On this note I want to mention here that we will have an registered “Auroville Activity” also, meaning that we can provide volunteer opportunities and hopefully also income opportunities for others quite soon! This means that we could make a start in Auroville for others more easy. In case, please message us via our blog for the details.
