Dear World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Supporters & Participants,

This global wave of goodwill provides a vision of hope and healing to a world hungry for such visions. Each year to view the photos of people from different cultures, religions, and every corner of the earth . . . breathing together . . . in this global Tai Chi & Qigong movement . . . is profound.
 

When you look thru the photographs and videos you see that "look" on people's faces, a look that conveys a feeling that all of us who've experienced the well-being that Qi, or life energy, expands through our mind and body when we make the space to breathe . . . and to let, calm, and wellness expand thru us.
 

When you see that look in all these diverse faces, from so many different lands, you can't help but deeply realize that we are indeed "one world . . . and, . . . one breath."
 

We are all connected by the field of life energy that physicists are now discovering permeates all existence.
 

By emersing ourselves in the field of life energy again and again, we become more and more grounded in the absolute reality that . . . we are all connected . . . all part of the web of life. And, by cultivating and growing the realization personally and globally, we may help in a subtle quiet way to usher in a more elegant future that nurtures us all in ways we cannot yet even imagine.

 

Again, thank you for making this extraordinary event and health movement possible thru your organizing and participation each year.

 

Sincerely,

 

Bill Douglas & Angela Wong Douglas, Co-Founders of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day

"MENSAGEM DA ORGANIZAÇÃO INTERNACIONAL DO DIA MUNDIAL DO TAI CHI & CHI KUNG PARA CADA UM DE VOCÊS E PARA TODOS AQUELES QUE, NAS DIFERENTES CIDADES DESTE PLANETA, HOJE SE REÚNEM PARA UMA CELEBRAÇÃO MUNDIAL:

 

Esta onda global de boa vontade e otimismo induz a uma visão de esperança, bem-estar e paz para um mundo carente desses valores. A cada ano paramos um pouquinho para olhar as imagens dos povos das mais diferentes religiões e culturas, que se encontram nos mais diversos cantos da terra ... respirando juntos ... num movimento universal de energia do Tai Chi & Chi Kung ... isso tem um profundo significado de Unidade.
 

Quando você olha as fotos e os vídeos, vê estampado nas faces das pessoas um sorriso interior e um brilho no olhar que transmite o sentimento daquilo que todos nós experimentamos: o sabor do Chi, o bem-estar que essa energia vital proporciona ao se expandir pelas nossas mentes e corpos quando nos dispomos a simplesmente respirar ... e nos entregamos à quietude e à calma, e toda vitalidade se expande a partir do nosso interior.

 

Quando você observa olhares tão diferentes, em rostos tão diferentes, de terras tão diferentes, comungando um êxtase de tranqüilidade e harmonia, saiba que você pode concretamente realizar o que todos com certeza sonhamos: "um mundo ... uma respiração"

 

Estamos todos conectados, interligados por uma incomensurável onda energética, um campo de energia da vida que a física quântica agora confirma que permeia toda a existência. Emergindo seguidamente nesse campo vibracional da energia vital, nos tornamos mais e mais convictos dessa realidade absoluta ... nós todos somos ligados ... como elos de uma corrente ou como todas as partes da cadeia receptora da vida. E cultivando as sementes da nossa realização pessoal, ajudamos também num crescimento global, de uma forma equilibrada, participando da construção de um futuro mais alegre e saudável que nos nutrirá a todos de uma maneira que jamais, ainda, podemos imaginar. "

Dichiarazione di apertura della Giornata Mondiale del Tai Chi e Qigong

 

Cari partecipanti e sostenitori della Giornata Mondiale del Tai Chi e Qi,

 

questa ondata mondiale di buona volontà dà una immagine di speranza e di guarigione a un mondo affamato di tali immagini. Ogni anno vedere le foto di persone di differenti culture, religioni e da tutti gli angoli della terra ... respirare insieme ... in questo movimento globale di Tai Chi e Qi ... è una esperienza profonda.
 

Quando guardiamo queste foto o video, scopriamo una stessa espressione sui volti: una espressione che trasmette il sentimento sperimentato da tutti noi che viviamo questo benessere diffuso dal Qi, o energia vitale, nella nostra mente e nel nostro corpo quando creiamo lo spazio per respirare ... e lasciamo che la calma e la tranquillità si espandano in noi.
 

Quando vediamo questa espressione su tutti questi visi differenti, provenienti da tanti paesi differenti, non possiamo che comprendere che siamo veramente "un solo mondo ... e ... un solo respiro"
 

Siamo tutti uniti dal campo di energia vitale che gli scienziati hanno ora scoperto permeare tutta l'esistenza.
 

Immergendoci regolarmente in questo campo di energia vitale, sempre più ci radichiamo in questa realtà assoluta che ... siamo tutti uniti ... tutti parte della trama della vita. E coltivando e sviluppando questa consapevolezza individualmente e globalmente, possiamo contribuire in modo tranquillo e sottile a far nascere un futuro più raffinato che ci nutrirà tutti in un modo che neppure possiamo immaginare.
 

Grazie ancora per aver reso possibile questo straordinario evento e questo movimento salutare, tramite la vostra annuale organizzazione e partecipazione.
 

Sinceramente,
 

Bill Douglas e Angela Wong Douglas, Co-Fondatori della Giornata Mondiale del Tai Chi e Qigong

Lettre de l'organisateur de la Journée Mondiale du Tai Chi et Qigong
 

 

Chers amis qui participez à la Journée Mondiale du Tai Chi et Qigong, ou qui la soutenez,
 

Cette vague mondiale de bonne volonté apporte une vision d'espoir et de guérison à un monde qui a soif de telles visions. Voir chaque année les photos de personnes de différentes cultures, religions, de tous les coins de la terre... respirant ensemble dans ce mouvement mondial de Tai Chi et Qigong, est une expérience profonde.
 

Lorsqu'on regarde toutes ces photos et vidéos, on découvre une même expression sur les visages : une expression qui traduit le sentiment ressenti par nous tous qui vivons ce bien-être diffusé par le Qi ou énergie vitale dans notre esprit et notre corps quand nous créons l'espace pour respirer... et laissons la tranquillité, le contentement se développer en nous.
 

Lorsqu'on voit cette expression sur tous ces visages différents, originaires de tant de pays différents, on ne peut que réaliser profondément que nous sommes véritablement « un seul monde... et un seul souffle »
 

Nous sommes tous reliés par le champ d'énergie vitale qui pénètre toute existence, selon les découvertes de la physique actuelle. En nous immergeant régulièrement dans ce champ d'énergie vitale, nous devenons de plus en plus enracinés dans cette réalité absolue que nous sommes tous reliés, que nous participons tous de la trame de la vie. Et en cultivant et développant cette prise de conscience, individuellement et globalement, nous pouvons contribuer d'une manière tranquille et subtile à faire naître un avenir plus radieux qui nous nourrira tous d'une façon qu'il est encore difficile d'imaginer.
 

Merci encore de rendre possible cet évènement extraordinaire et cette action pour la santé, grâce à votre participation et votre organisation chaque année.
 

Sincèrement,
 

Bill Douglas et Angela Wong Douglas, co-fondateurs de la Journée Mondiale du Tai Chi et du Qigong.

Boodschap van Bill Douglas en zijn team van het Internationale Centrum voor WereldTaichi&Qigongdag aan al de deelnemers aan dit wereldgebeuren.
 

Deze wereldomvattende golf van welwillendheid zorgt voor een visie van hoop en heling in een wereld die hunkert naar dit soort visies. Elk jaar de fotos zien van mensen van verschillende culturen, godsdiensten en van elke hoek van de aarde...samen ademend ... in deze wereld T'ai Chi & Qigong beweging maakt een diepe indruk.
 

Wanneer je de foto's en video's bekijkt dan zie je die blik op het gezicht van de mensen, een blik die een gevoel uitdrukt dat wij allemaal ervaren hebben door het welzijn dat Qi, of de levensenergie, verspreidt door onze geest en ons lichaam wanneer we ruimte maken om te ademen ...en om kalmte en goedheid zich in ons te laten uitbreiden
 

Wanneer je deze blik ziet in al die verschillende gezichten, van zoveel
 

verschillende landen, dan kan je niet anders dan je heel diep realiseren dat we inderdaad "één wereld . . . en, . . . één adem " zijn.
 

We zijn allemaal verbonden door het veld van levensenergie, dat fysici nu aan 't ontdekken zijn en dat alles wat bestaat doordringt.
 

Door onszelf telkens opnieuw in dit veld van levensenergie te begeven, worden we meer en meer gegrondvest in de absolute realiteit dat . . . we allemaal verbonden zijn . . . allemaal deel zijn van het levensweb. En, door dit besef aan te kweken en te doen groeien zowel persoonlijk als op wereldvlak, kunnen we op een subtiele rustige manier helpen om ons binnen te leiden in een elegantere toekomst die ons allemaal voedt op een manier die we ons nog niet eens kunnen voorstellen..
 

Nogmaals, dank jullie om dit buitengewone gebeuren en deze gezondheids-beweging mogelijk te maken door jullie organisatie en jullie deelname elk jaar.
 

Heel hartelijk,
 

Bill Douglas & Angela Wong Douglas,
 
Medestichters van World Tai Chi & Qigong Day

Estimados participantes y patrocinadores de la celebración del Día Mundial del Tai Chi y Qi Gong:
 

Esta onda global de buena voluntad proporciona una visión de esperanza y curación a un mundo hambriento de tales visiones. Cada año al ver las fotos de personas de diversas culturas, religiones, y de cada confín de la tierra... respirando juntos... en este movimiento global de Tai Chi y de Chi Kung... es profundamente inspirador.
 

Cuando usted mira las fotografías y los videos usted ve la "mirada" en las caras de las personas, una mirada que sintetiza una sensación que todos nosotros los que hemos tenido esa experiencia del bienestar que se adquiere a través del manejo del Qi, o energía de la vida, que se expande a través de nuestra mente y cuerpo cuando nos tomamos el tiempo para respirar. . . y calmarnos, y dejar que la salud se amplíe en nosotros.
 

Cuando usted ve esa mirada especial en todas estas caras diversas, de tantas y diversas tierras, usted no puede dejar de realizar profundamente que somos de hecho "un solo mundo... y... un solo aliento."
 

Todos estamos conectados por el campo de la energía de la vida que los físicos ahora están descubriendo y que, de hecho, impregna toda la existencia.
 

Al sumergirnos en el campo de la energía de la vida repetidas veces, nos convencemos más y más de la absoluta realidad... de que todos estamos conectados... de que todos somos parte del enrejado de la vida. Y, cultivando y creciendo lo realizado tanto personal como globalmente, podemos ayudar de una manera sutil y reservada a llevar a un futuro que nos consolide a todos de maneras que no podemos todavía incluso imaginarnos.
 

Una vez más gracias por hacer este acontecimiento y movimiento extraordinarios de la salud directo posible a través de su participación activa.
 

Sinceramente,
 

Bill Douglas & Angela Wong Douglas, Co-Fundadores del Día Mundial del Tai Chi y Qi Gong.

Postovani organizatori, i sudionici World TaChi & Qigong Day Svjetskog TaiChi i Qigong Dana,
 

Ovaj Globalni Val dobre volje daje viziju nade i lijecenja svijetu koji je gladan takvih vizija, kome su takve vizije prijeko potrebne. Svake godine gledajući fotografije ljudi iz raznih kultura, religija, iz svakog kutka planete Zemlje ... disuci zajedno ... u ovom globalnom TaiChi i qigong pokretu ... osjećamo dubinu, ljubav i iskrenost.
 

Kada pogledavate fotografije i video zapise vidite onaj pogled na ljudskim licima , koji izrazava i prenosi osjecaj koji svima nama koji smo osjetili blagostanje koje Qi, ili Zivotna energija , prenosi kroz nas um i tijelo kada si dopustimo da slobodno disemo ... i na taj nacin napravimo i dopustimo smirenosti i zadovoljstvu da se rasiri kroz cijelo nase bice.
 

Kada vidite taj pogled na svim tim razlicitim licima , iz toliko puno zemalja, ne mozete si pomoci a da ne shvatite da smo svi ustvari jedan svijet ... i, ... jedan dah."
 

Svi smo povezani poljem zivotne energije za koji fizicari sada otkrivaju da ispunjava cijelo postojanje.
 

Uronivsi u polje zivotne energije sve vise i vise , postajemo sve vise i vise uzemljeni u apsolutnu stvarnost toga da ... smo svi povezani ...da smo svi dijelovi mreze Zivota.
 

I skupljanjem i rastom te realizacije osobno i globalno , mi mozemo pomoci na fin i tihi nacin da se uvedemo u elegantniju budućnost koja hrani i ispunjava sve nas na načine koje sada ne mozemo jos niti zamisliti.
 

Ponovno vam svima hvala u organiziranju ovog izvanrednog dogadaja i zdravstvenog pokreta koji je postao moguć kroz Vasu organizaciju i sudjelovanje svake godine.
 

Iskreno Vasi,

PRESS RELEASE: On Saturday, April 27th, in hundreds of cities in over 70 nations mass tai chi and qigong teach-ins and exhibitions will be held to educate the world about the health benefits of tai chi, and to bring people together across racial, ethnic, and geopolitical borders for a common vision of personal and global health & healing.

 

This month the newly released Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi cited this global health education event "World Tai Chi & Qigong Day." The National Assembly of Brazil just honored this global event.

www.worldtaichiday.org. Why?

 

Harvard Medical Publication called tai chi "medication in motion" for all the myriad health issues it could help or treat. Mounting research shows this first line health treatment could save hundreds of billions in avoided future health challenges as its popularity expands. The Mayo clinic says 2.5 million Americans are now using tai chi for health enhancement.

 

Mass events in US, Iran, Israel, Egypt, Brazil, Cuba, Canada, Hong Kong, Manilla, etc.

New Free WTCQD Banner Artwork!
  
  
We found some printers couldn't use the PDF file for the free WTCQD banner artwork we provided.
  
  Poster Banner Generic
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  

So, we reformatted it into a smaller JPEG version of 60 inches by 20 inches, which you can get printed on poster paper at Costco for under $20.
  
Download the artwork for free at:
  

 

BE SURE TO SHOOT 3 TO 5 MINUTE VIDEO CLIPS OF YOUR WTCQD EVENTS ... and then post them to Youtube following your event, and send the youtube links to us at billdouglas@worldtaichiday.org so we can share them with the world.

 

NOTE: Many new cell phones have camcorders in their apps. If you don't have one, ask your kids or grandkids to shoot video with theirs, and to help you upload it to Youtube on WTCQD. They'll be happy to help!
Make WTCQD a family affair :-)

 

INCLUDE YOUR BANNER IN YOUR VIDEOS & MARK YOUR LOCAL "CITY/STATE/NATION" ON THE BANNER SO VIDEO WATCHERS WILL KNOW WHERE YOU ARE IN THE WORLD.

Giornata Mondiale del Taijiquan e del Qigong, discipline cinesi per l'educazione e il benessere.

L'evento lanciato da internet, e coordinato a livello mondiale        dal    sito    www.worldtaichiday.org prende come occasione ideale la celebrazione della nascita del leggendario monaco taoista Zhan Sanfeng.

Nasce come festa e momento di incontro tra scuole e praticanti ma  presto assume una portata ben maggiore. Riceve il patrocinio dell'ONU, della Organizzazione Mondiale della Sanità e  diviene
occasione privilegiata di educazione alla salute, al benessere e alla pace attraverso le pratiche di Taijiquan e Qigong; un incontro tra popoli, culture, razze, e religioni diverse seguendo il motto

"un mondo...un respiro"

Aprendosi al respiro e lasciandosi nutrire dal Qi, dalla quiete e dalla tranquillità diveniamo consapevoli  che  siamo  tutti  uniti  da  un  unico campo di energia vitale e parte di un unico mondo.

A partire dalla Nuova Zelanda, e seguendo il fuso orario, un respiro,  un' onda di energia e di
pace si
propaga in tutto il mondo.

World Day of
Taijiquan and Qigong, Chinese disciplines for the education and well-being.

The event launched by the internet, and coordinated worldwide by the site

www.worldtaichiday.org takes it as an ideal opportunity the celebration of the birth of the legendary
monaco Taoist Zhan Sanfeng.

Born as a party and a meeting point between schools and practitioners but soon takes on a defined scope
greater. He received the patronage of the UN, the World Health Organization and becomes
special opportunity for health education, wellness and peace through practical
Taijiquan and Qigong, an encounter between peoples, cultures, races, and religions following the
motto

"One world ... one breath ..."

Opening the breath and letting nourished by Qi, peace, and tranquility become
aware that we are all united by a single field of energy and vital part of a single
world.

Starting from New Zealand, and following the current time, a breath, a 'wave of energy and
peace propagates throughout the world.
