Our Youngest Volunteer


26-month-old Valentin has already started on his Taoist path, volunteering at the International Centre at Orangeville for several months over this Canadian summer.

With his parents Nicoline and Ted, he arrived from France last month and has already been helping with the temples, gardening, washing dishes, cleaning, taking out the recycyling and compost bins, and entertaining the other volunteers and centre staff.

Valentin has also helped our tai chi; we can observe his good posture and watching him roll around on the floor we can see where the movement starts in his spine.

About twenty young members gathered last week-end in Longueuil for Youth Week-end. They also had the honour to be the first to use the new kitchen of the Regional Centre as they participated in the meal preparation throughout the week-end. Apart from cooking, they also did lots of toryus, danyus, pushhands and rolls. They also discussed of ways to attract more young people in our classes and they launched the Facebook Group: Fung Loy Kok Taoist Tai Chi – Youth in french, to keep in touch until next youth workshop!
