The Post Gazette, April 18, 2013

Group members move slowly, gracefully in unison to inaudible music. Visitors to local parks who see the sessions wonder what the participants are doing. Now they can be part of the activity free.

The last Saturday of April was chosen in 1999 to promote the related disciplines of tai chi and qigong (pronounced chi kung).

World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Message from Donald & Cheryl Rubbo!
  
                                                                   

As Bill Douglas says, 'One World, One Breath': To our global brothers and sisters, thank you for continuing to make a phenomenal positive impact on the health of the world by hosting your World Tai Chi & Qigong Day events, and spreading the word on these profound ancient systems of health and self-defense. The recent tragic events in Boston, MA, USA, and in other parts of the world, have inspired us to send this urgent message to you. Please consider incorporating the Extraordinary Breath with the intention of increasing peace worldwide, as you gather your community together to practice Tai Chi and Qigong, and in your hearts generate and expand the light of peace to soothe our troubled world.

 

Stand Against the Darkness. The smallest seed of light dispels the greatest darkness. During your event, breathe with the Extraordinary Breath, and generate a magnificent seed of light in your heart center, as bright as the sun, and allow this light to grow and join the light emanating and expanding from our heart centers. Encourage your participants to generate their own seeds of light and expand them outward from their heart centers. Imagine the size and power of this light if everyone did this during World Tai Chi & Qigong Day, millions of seeds of light expanding and merging, dispelling the darkness and lighting up our world.

 

Visit http://www.ExtraordinaryBreath.com to learn this simple, effective, deep breathing system, and dispel the darkness with during your World Tai Chi and Qigong Day event. Thank you for Standing Against the Darkness with us, Donald and Cheryl Lynne Rubbo

Medical Tai Chi
The New WorldTaiChiDay.org
Project!

 

The NEW WORLDTAICHIDAY.ORG PROJECT, is to ask individuals on this email list who have experienced health benefits from their Tai Chi and/or Qigong practice to record a short 3 or 4 minute video explaining what health issue their Tai Chi or Qigong practice helped with. We plan to begin posting these in our Medical Research Library in the future under those health issues where we have medical research on them.
  
Feel free to mention your teacher/school, or the book or dvd that you learned from, and your city/state/nation if you feel comfortable doing so. You'll need to then upload it to Youtube as a public video, and send us the youtube link at billdouglas@worldtaichiday.org.
  
Your story may help someone change their life. We've collected Medical Research articles for 15 years for our Library at http://www.worldtaichiday.org/WTCQDHlthBenft.html
But, to have a human face talking to others facing the same challenges is a powerful thing, perhaps as or more powerful than just reading the research results. You can be a healing force in this world.
