Did you know recent research shows that stress blocks our ability for empathy and compassion of strangers, as reported in Science Daily?
World Tai Chi & Qigong Day's global wave of connecting via Tai Chi and Qigong mass exhibitions and teach ins, may be advancing global empathy and compassion for 2 reasons. #1 is that these mind-body arts profoundly reduce stress levels in practitioners (the research shows that less stressed people are more empathetic and compassionate). #2 is that the Science Daily article also explains that when people feel some connection to others beyond their world, it unlocks their ability to be more empathetic to their suffering.
When people in over 80 nations come together each year to play Tai Chi and Qigong as part of a global wave, and see the videos and photos of others playing with them around the world ... it, according to the research, may make us more empathetic to others around the world. Suddenly you have Tai Chi and Qigong connections with people in nations you would never have traveled to. Suddenly, they are not faceless people images on a news screen, they are people like us, that we have connected with.
Please alert everyone you know that World Tai Chi & Qigong Day 2015 is rapidly approaching! Time to organize!
In about 3 months people around the globe in over 80 nations will come together across racial, ethnic, religious and geopolitical borders ... to breathe together.
Qigong means "breath work" or "energy work." Our global wave of Qigong across the planet each year is an example to the world of how we, the human family, can come together to create a profound vision of health & healing.
HOW THE WORLD IS CHANGING!
A few T'ai Chi & Qigong teachers and enthusiasts have felt uncomfortable with the term "meditation" being associated with what they teach, because of the "flaky" connotation long associated with mind-body arts. That day is no more ...
Last issue highlighted Scientific American Magazine's cover story on meditation. This week Parade Magazine (one of the most highly read publications) chose Meditation as the #1 Health Booster of 2015. Tai Chi and Qigong are often referred to as "meditation in motion." Today, when people hear the word "meditation" they no longer think of Woodstock or Haight-Ashbury, they think of Harvard Medical School, and cutting edge science.
We have worked for 16 years to flood the world with medical research and information to move T'ai Chi & Qigong beyond just a martial art or an exercise ... to assume its rightful place as a high science that changes mind and body in profoundly beneficial ways.
Together, by organizing World Tai Chi & Qigong Day celebrations across the planet, we are changing the world. Our work together has led government bodies worldwide to pronounce officially the profound health benefits of Tai Chi & Qigong practice for their citizens. See below video - share widely!
|Government Bodies Worldwide Officially Recognize World Tai Chi & Qigong Day - WorldTaiChiDay.org provides free kits to help you get official proclamations for your WTCQD event.|
WorldTaiChiDay.org has facilitated the connection and mutual cooperation of Tai Chi and Qigong teachers, enthusiasts and organizations worldwide, to expand the public's awareness of Tai Chi and Qigong as a public health treasure. Together, we have made Tai Chi and Qigong a crown jewel in the new mind-body revolution.
Below is a very unique video promotion for the WTCQD organizers in Tunisia, North Africa ... an example of how local groups utilize World Tai Chi & Qigong Day to promote the arts in their city and nation. It is in French, but very visual and understandable.
