  • SWI Building Project!

    February 2008


    Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family and Friends.

    Shaolin greetings and I hope you are well.

    The Shaolin Wahnam Institute of Ireland are now inviting students from Ireland and Internationally to join our first ever Shaolin Wahnam 200 club to help raise funds for the Shaolin Wahnam Institute of Ireland building project.

    The Institute

    The Shaolin Wahnam Institute will be a residential institute, where the profound and almost lost arts of Shaolin will be preserved and shared with many. These Arts are: Shaolin Chi Kung, Shaolin Kungfu and Zen meditation, the three treasures of Shaolin. Wahnam Tai Chi Chuan is, of course, a must also!

    The benefits to humanity are immense. These arts can help overcome illness and maintain good health, increase energy, mental focus, mental clarity and spiritual development. Shaolin Kungfu and Wahnam Tai Chi Chuan training will ensure that you use the patterns you learn, in combat and the principles in your daily life enhancing everything that you do.

    As you have seen and experienced for yourself, Shaolin Chi Kung is very simple, but quite profound in its effects. The world needs high level Chi Kung and it is my vision to build a centre where people can come and learn in a beautiful environment on a weekly, daily or monthly basis. A beautiful dedicated space honouring our Sifu and past Masters.


    The Shaolin Wahnam Institute of Ireland 200 club means that the first 200 students (and their family members) to donate €120.00 will join us in a year long set of monthly draws in thanksgiving for their generosity. By donating just €120.00, members of the club are entered into 12 draws with cash prizes ranging from €1000.00, €500.00, €200.00 and €120.00. The €1000.00 prize is given out every third month and we are deeply honoured that the first €1000.00 has been generously donated by Sifu for the March draw.


    Payment is simple.
    You may use the paypal option on

    www.smilefromtheheart.ie/gpage7.html

    or send a cheque or postal order to: Sifu Joan Browne, Building Project, Mullin, Cordal, Castleisland, Co Kerry, Ireland - made out to ‘Shaolin Wahnam Institute Building Project’. Bank transfer is also acceptable but please email me for details of bank account number and SWIFT code - sifujoan@gmail.com

    Once payment has been received (please include: Name, Address and Phone Number) you will receive confirmation of your entry to the draw. The first draw will be launched on March 25th 2008 and the subsequent last Tuesday of each month during the Killarney classes.


    Please remember the draw is confined to the first 200 people, so early donation is appreciated. If there are more than 200 we will set up another members club, but it cannot operate until the members reach 200 in number.

    All donator names (not amount) will be remembered on a special plaque in the large training hall of the centre and are sure to receive many blessings.

    What way can you donate?

    1) You may donate €120.00 as a single person for yourself.

    2) You may donate as a family.

    3) You may donate as a group e.g. in a class situation 10 students may come together and give €12.00 each and name the group e.g Dublin Wahnam Tai Chi Chuan group. Please decide and agree beforehand how any monies received from donation will be divided. You may decide to buy something new for your training hall or put it towards a Lion Dance course as a group initiative.

    These are only some ideas, I am sure you can think of more and if you wish to share them, please feel free.


    I am amazed at the wonderful offers of help and generosity already given and pledged. Thank you all so much. It is important to remember that this is YOUR centre also


    Special thanks already to Sifu and to Siheng Wong Chun Nga who have been a tremendous help in sourcing beautiful statues of Boddhisattva Guan Yin and Boddhisattva Ksitigarbha. They are being carved as we speak!!!

    This is a very exciting and fun time and I do hope you will join us in our journey and to continue the preservation of these wonderful arts.

    Mile Bhiouchas!

      Dear Joan,

      I'm delighted and honoured to be a member of the Shaolin Wahnam Ireland 200 club. (I've made my paypal donation)

      If I win one of the monthly draws, please don't even think of sending me the money! It should stay in the building fund.

      From the Heart,

            200 club

            Dear Shaolin family and friends

            I would like to thank Sigung for his most generous gift to the 200 club building project, it is a wonderful injection of chi to the dynamic of this project.

            In selling tickets for the 200 club I have found that it is a wonderful way to bring awareness of Shaolin Wahnam into the community. I have focused on selling family and syndicate tickets finding that it can raise our profile in a fun way. We all know how effective it is to have groups of people all focused on the same event at a certain point of time. The flow of good chi is phenomenol.

            Events like these can promote more interest in Shaolin Wahnam in a very low key way to people, who may otherwise not have had the courage or confidence to walk into a class. It challenges me to be accountable when people question me with doubt about the profundity of the Shaolin Arts.

            So,on pay day, my work colleagues are pooling together to buy a ticket. It is generating great camaraderie, as we study the ticket with the Shaolin Wahnam logo, and discuss how we will spend the proceeds. I think that the money allocated to prizes is an important channel of outflow for creating a greater inflow of money into the project as a whole.

            So good luck to you all

            Maria

                Dear Joan Sije,

                Congratulations on your inspiring vision. The project looks wonderful and I wish Wahnam Ireland every success. Naturally I am looking forward to spending some time there when the project comes to fruition.

                I hope that our small donation, on behalf of The Chalmers' Family, will help speed along the project.


                With Respect,

                Sidai,

                Charles.

                      Dear Shaolin Wahnam Family and Friends

                      We have decided to hold the first draw on April 29th as many people have sent money by bank transfer in the last few days and it will not be through by tomorrow night.

                      So you have an extra few weeks now to join or help if you wish

                      Please email me sifujoan@gmail.com or PM for the bank transfer details.

                      In deep appreciation,

                      Smile from the Heart,

                          It gives me a wonderful feeling inside seeing all my brothers and sisters coming together to offer their support for the institute! Be it a message, offering of skills or purchasing a 200 club ticket.

                          My family will be purchasing a ticket shortly and my mother thinks it is a great idea for her workplace (a hotel in Galway) and the local ICA (Women's Guild) that she is president of.

                          I myself am going into work today to rally the employees of Tesco Killarney. We have a lotto syndicate already - the 200 club imho gives much better odds of winning a prize and with four or more people it works out cheaper than buying a lotto ticket for the month.

                          I just broke my nintendo wii which needs a new controller, so I'm going to try and give the luckiest ticket to my parents

                          Standing in the Shaolin Waham Ireland Institute, with it's beautiful surroundings and spritual interior. The lakes and mountains outside the windows - I will smile knowing I helped in some small way to bring this to Killarney, Ireland, Europe and beyond.
