Dear World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Supporters,
Below you'll see articles on Harvard Health Publications advocacy of Tai Chi for balance; and news about a Tai Chi Flash Mob being held on Falls Prevention Day to call attention to Tai Chi as a powerful solution to balance issues, as well as an explanation of why you should "like" WorldTaiChiDay on Facebook, or "follow us" on Twitter.
But first, I wanted to let everyone know that today is Angela's 60th birthday Many of you know that Angie has dedicated much of her life to connecting the global Tai Chi and Qigong family in order to advance these arts to contribute to a healthier, calmer, and clearer planet.
I wanted to honor all these years Angela has put into this vision, her business skills, organizing skills, creativity, and courage to put so much of her personal savings on the line has made this vision of a global movement for health with a motto of "One World ... One Breath" possible.
As you've read WorldTaiChiDay.org was just chosen one of the World's Top Qigong Resources. None of this would have been possible without Angela Wong's business managment skills, her dogged determination, her huge heart, and her willingness to risk her financial future to fulfill a vision of connecting and uniting the global Tai Chi and Qigong community. It has been a herculean task on her part.
In Chinese culture the 60th birthday is a VERY important event in one's life. So, I made a short home video to let Angie know how important she's been to me, and our family, and to this global family of Tai Chi and Qigong players. Angie does so much of the work, but gets so little of the recognition, this video is my way of saying "thankyou Angie."
You can view the below short home Video Tribute to WTCQD Founder, Angela Wong Douglas, to commemorate her 60th birthday, a VERY special birthdate for Chinese people.
Good Qi to all, and happy 60th Angie!
