Be part of our beautiful international community. 🌺🍂
Looking for new community members – Uceio dell’Aquila is a young community and network of different houses, with the aim to be a pocket of light and brotherhood in this dark society. We share our different houses with everyone who is part of the community: we have houses in Germany, France, Spain and Scotland. We are very international, with people coming from all over the world. Although each house has its style and some are bigger and more active than others, we all share a common purpose and a common view of life.
At the core of our community, there is the spirit of brotherhood. We respect and protect life from any form of violence, that’s why we are vegetarian and vegan. For the same principle, we don’t allow smoking, drugs or alcohol in our places. We have a non-profit organisation with which we do humanitarian actions all over the world, funded by the profits of our school and personal jobs.
We want to create an experience that is fulfilling for you and us, therefore we will take into account your skills and interests and propose the best destination for you. When you contact us we will be able to tell you where you will be able to contribute the best to our project.
We value people who have experience in sport, dancing and other physical disciplines and who are willing to teach. We are also happy to welcome people who have experience in gardening, who are able to work with wood or build different structures, like organic hives, rainwater collecting systems, dry toilets and so on. But don’t worry, if you don’t have any specific knowledge if you are very eager to learn and you have a good spirit, contact us and we will be happy to find you a spot.
The volunteer/hospitality exchange
As a member of the community, you get food, accommodation and access to all our lessons, which include: martial arts, Yoga, dancing, stretching, Tai Chi Chuan and others. We love animals and we have different pets, so your pets are absolutely welcome, as long as you keep them under control.🐶🐱🐦
The amount of work expected is around 20-25 hours a week.
Minimum stay is 3 weeks although we prefer people coming for at least 1 month. We are happy to welcome you for long-term stays too! 🙂
You will have also the possibility to learn different languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, just to name a few.
You can decide the terms of the exchange that are more suitable for you, either to pay for your stay in the community in a classical, but extremely affordable way, or to pay through voluntary work.
UPDATE sept 2020
We are a community that wishes to become a pocket of light and brotherhood. We share the places we have and put them at the disposal of anyone who wants to be a part of the same spirit. We are a network of houses. Although some are more developed and more active than others and each has a little bit of a different style, we all share a common purpose and spirit.
Our main teacher is a Shaolin monk – Master Dao. He is a psychologist, osteopath and master of multiple martial arts and spirituality,
Rules of our house:
- 1. No alcohol
- 2. No smoking
- 3. No drugs
- 4. No meat (including fish)
- 5. No violence
- 6. No spiritual fanaticism
Currently, because of multiple volunteers coming to us and not really understanding what we do, we launched an online learning list. We ask you to join it before you come to us so both sides know what to expect and you can learn a lot while doing that!
We need help with
- animal care,
- and occasionally with the building.
One thing we’d like you to know is that we want you to be a part of our place; we don’t want you to be here only to deal with the tasks and work. In here, we care about being a community, a brotherhood, not a company or a factory.
In here, you can learn a lot.
The tools that we provide:
- general fitness,
- martial arts such us karate or kung-fu, dancing, tai chi chuan,
- languages (English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, Japanese, Arabic and a sort of Esperanto).
Apart from the lessons, you will be with an international team of people willing to share everything they know.
In the lessons of martial arts, for instance, you can learn a lot about yourself. By the movement of your body, you can improve your mental health as well.
If you are interested, send us a message saying a little bit about yourself and why you’d like to come and we can talk some more!
We are looking for people who would like to join us potentially for long-term stays!
