Dear World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Supporters,

 

We lost a beautiful human being last week. Robin Williams was an actor who chose roles reminding us that we are valuable meaningful parts of the symphony of life. His death does not diminish that.

 

This newsletter is a tribute to his contribution to the world through his work, and also a call to all of us to contribute our verse. Please spread the medical research on Tai Chi's benefits for depression. The Tai Chi and Qigong community can be a healing force in the world, helping other beautiful souls with depression.

 

What will your verse be?
Tribute to Robin Williams:  What will your verse be?

 

 

Robin Williams was dealing with heart disease, drug addiction, depression, and being newly diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease.

If you click the above links to "heart disease" "depression," etc., it will take you to pages in our Medical Research Library, where you will find research links you can share with others on how Tai Chi and Qigong may help them with their challenges.

 

This is what WorldTaiChiDay.org and World Tai Chi & Qigong Day are about.

 

This is why all of us coming together each year to hold a mass worldwide wave of Tai Chi and Qigong education and celebration of hope and healing in the world is so important, and why we spend thousands of hours creating the above resources so that you can share these tools that have been a healing part of your life.

 

Robin, you will be missed. We send this to honor your existence, and to hopefully be moved by your passing to expand some good into the world ... I hope you enjoy this tribute "Oh Captain, my captain ..."

 

Your films were among the most beautiful--powerful life affirming ones. Thank you! These cinematic moments touched souls.

 

For Robin.

 

Bill Douglas, World Tai Chi & Qigong Day

ON THE MEDICAL FRONT:

 

We had some HUGE breakthroughs getting Tai Chi Meditation into modern healthcare, see below Midwest Cancer Alliance tele-conference event covered by Midwestern newspapers. Below we have a link that can help teachers worldwide make the inroads we have made, to expand the benefits of Tai Chi and Qigong worldwide, via local efforts one city at a time--to create a healthier, calmer, more peaceful world.

 

 

HUGE BREAKTHROUGHS INTO MODERN HEALTHCARE! 

 

World Tai Chi & Qigong Day founder, Bill Douglas, offering tele-conference presentation for health centers across the Midwest, in program through the Midwest Cancer Alliance (MCA). This is the result of years of dogged effort to educate local health professionals and hospitals about Tai Chi and Qigong medical research.

 

It is also important to acknowledge the profound tool we've all been given that has helped us make headroads into healthcare. Dr. Peter Wayne's Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi. If you haven't read it, get it. Then pass it on to your healthcare professionals, physician, etc.

 

Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi 

 

WorldTaiChiDay.org offers a free "how-to" guide to help Tai Chi and Qigong teachers and enthusiasts engage their local medical centers in Tai Chi and Qigong programs for their patients. See below link::

Tai Chi expert shares health benefits at free St. Rose event

Since stress is at the core of many health issues, St. Rose Ambulatory & Surgery Center is sponsoring a free presentation on Tai Chi, which combines breathing, visualization and gentle movements to cleanse the body of tension.

 

The interactive televideo (ITV) presentation is called "Tai Chi: A Gentle Yet Powerful Exercise for Managing Stress" and is open to the public. It is scheduled for 3 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 20 at St. Rose in the basement-level St. Dominic Room.
 

"Tai Chi's powerful stress-management aspects have been shown to dramatically boost immune-system responses," said Bill Douglas, presenter. "Medical research shows that most health issues benefit from regular Tai Chi practice, and Harvard Health Publications called it 'medication in motion.'


 "Tai Chi has been proven to increase brain size and is the best balance coordinator we know of," Douglas continued. "It is also the lowest-impact exercise and is safe for those with arthritis, yet it burns nearly as many calories as surfing."


 

The gentle exercise has been shown to help with high blood pressure, heart disease, COPD, depression, anxiety, Type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis and much more.


 "Tai Chi is the result of several thousand years of health research in China," Douglas noted. "We can teach the body to move in the most effortless and powerful ways.


 

"It is an excellent program for caregivers too," Douglas elaborated. "It not only helps lower stress, anxiety and depression, it gives physical benefits to help caregivers complete their tasks with less chance of injury."


 

Those who attend the ITV presentation will be introduced to the Sitting Qigong meditative practice, Moving Qigong's gentle movement meditative techniques and a Tai Chi short form.


 "Just come to the presentation to breathe, loosen and play," Douglas encouraged. "You will feel wonderful when you leave."...


 The presentation at St. Rose is part of a Midwest Cancer Alliance (MCA) series of health and wellness events for cancer patients in particular and the community in general. St. Rose is a member of MCA, the outreach arm of The University of Kansas Cancer Center.

St. Rose is part of Centura Health, which connects individuals and families across western Kansas and Colorado with more than 6,000 physicians, 15 hospitals, seven senior-living communities, physician practices and clinics, and home-care and hospice services.
