 100s of Cities, in over 80 nations -- World Tai Chi & Qigong Day        

 



WORLD TAI CHI & QIGONG DAY 2015
Saturday, April 25th, 2015 


 

ONLY 43 DAYS UNTIL WTCQD 2015

   

 


 

WHY a World Tai Chi & Qigong Day?
 

Educating millions via our organizing mass Tai Chi & Qigong events on the same day worldwide in over 80 nations translates into the amazing expansion of Tai Chi and Qigong into healthcare, education, penal rehab., corporate wellness, etc. that will translate into billions of dollars in saved future health costs, social costs, and personal suffering. That in itself is reason to support this global annual phenomenon.


 

However, Japanese NHK Television recently broadcast a profound interview with renowned Japanese artist and designer, Susumu Shingu, a visionary who incorporates wind sensitive home design art with functional green sustainable wind energy generation. 

 

Below is an excerpt from this interview. Mr. Shingu's project is called "Breathing Earth." As you know, the official motto of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day is "One World ... One Breath."

 

As you read Mr. Shingu's words, if you replace the word "wind" with the word "Qi," his words paint a breathtakingly beautiful image of why we work to organize World Tai Chi & Qigong Day."


 

The power of Qi, life energy ...

 


 

"I made the wind my theme many years ago. Literature and various art forms face barriers of language and culture. But wind is universal. It can be a means of communication that everyone on planet Earth can share. Wind transcends national boundaries, because it blows freely across the globe. 


 

The boundaries people established to define societies and countries and so on lie at the heart of all conflict. By transcending such boundaries, wind has the power to unite people as members of one planet wide community. I believe that wind can become a medium of trust. Maybe I'm being too optimistic, but that's the way I feel about the power of the wind.

-- Susumu Shingu, visionary artist and designer,|
NHK Television, March 11, 2015

 


 

And that is how we feel about the power of Qi--it flows through all human beings regardless of where they are.

-- Bill & Angela Wong-Douglas

Our office staff is small--me and Angie :-)

 

We appreciate you ordering early, and it also gives you a better discount. As volumes decrease and time hastens, the costs increase. And we can't afford to carry a large inventory in fear of overload with unsold inventory.

 

T-Shirt prices were set to increase on March 15th, but we are extending that to March 16th, in case any groups meeting over the weekend might want to pull a Group Order together, because you get HUGE discounts on Group Orders!

 

 

 

 

On this day ... we are indeed ...

 

 

One World ... One Breath

 

 

... and that is indeed a healthy vision for the world to experience.

 

We'd like to grow this event, do mass media, etc.  Your purchase of our Official World Tai Chi & Qigong Day T-Shirts helps promote this vision ... creating a calmer, clearer and more peaceful planet.

  



 

For those new to our work:
Why support the work of WorldTaiChiDay.org and our organizing of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day each year? 

 

While we could explain how Angie and I have invested thousands of dollars into international mass media campaigns promoting teachers and groups and helping them garner attention from media including the BBC TV, AP TV, CNN, FOX, etc. and how we engaged government agencies worldwide to support local Tai Chi and Qigong groups & awareness ... HOWEVER, it will probably be more meaningful to ...

 

Media Coverage of WTCQD
WTCQD Founder has trained Tai Chi and Qigong enthusiasts
worldwide in global media work, to educate millions worldwide
of the profound medical research on Tai Chi and Qigong.

 

 

 


Just let Tai Chi and Qigong teachers from around the world explain the value of what we do at WorldTaiChiDay.org:

 

Hi Bill,
I hope you receive lots of feedback about the immense value of the work you and Angela are doing - spreading the word re. the health benefits of these ancient, easy-to-do practices, which have low/no cost and no adverse side effects.  The world needs tai chi and qigong right now.  And for those of us labouring to set up new classes, encourage new students and change entrenched minds, WTCQD gives us strength, to know we are not alone.  :-)

Thanks again, and I hope to have the opportunity to meet you and thank you in person sometime soon.

All the best,
Kele

PACIFIC COLLEGE OF ORIENTAL MEDICINE on WorldTaiChiDay.org's Work:

Yin Yang's Self-Replication


"World Tai Chi and Qigong Day is an opportunity for
an individual regardless of nationality, religion, political
affiliation, economic status, race age or ability to
participate in a worldwide event," said Nations. "It
is individuals consciously connecting with others
everywhere with the universal force of Qi." . . . 

. . . Pacific College of Oriental Medicine is one institution
or global healing center of many around the world to
recognize World Tai Chi and Qigong Day (WTCQD).
Beginning at 10 a.m. April 30 in New Zealand and
spreading across time zones, World Tai Chi and
Qigong Day will see people in over 50 nations gather
at a park, global healing center or back yard to
practice these disciplines.

World Tai Chi and Qigong Day provides teachers,
schools and Tai Chi and Qigong exercise associations
with many free tools and services to educate
communities about the potential benefits of these
disciplines. It is also a day to promote worldwide
wellbeing.

"The idea is to create a wave of health and healing
throughout the planet," said Robert Nations, a faculty
member and Qigong/Tai Chi specialist at Pacific
College of Oriental Medicine. "Within the Chinese
medical community it is a time for quiet contemplation
on the reason we are here in the first place."
