St. Louis, MO
Bill & World Tai Chi & Qigong Day,
I'm sharing photos from our World Tai Chi Day event here in St. Louis. 12 photos total. ... We had ... several demonstrations by five different people. Most of the people you see in this picture have Parkinson's Disease and are members of some of my classes at the local APDA.
It was a great day. This is such a great way to get my students out of the class room in a beautiful setting doing Tai Chi together. It is also a great opportunity for them to meet other students and teachers. Thank you for all your hard work putting this event together.

ON SENDING YOUR WTCQD REPORTS ...
upload your videos onto Youtube
, and then send us the Youtube link. It is way less work for us that way, plus you get increased outreach for your photos/video. You can use Windows Movie Make
r, a free video editing program, where you can add titles & music to imported photos or video.
Also, if you post your photos on a Facebook page, and send us the link, or post them in your WTCQD Event Listing, and then send us the link. But, Youtube and Movie Maker are great tools to learn how to use for your own local school's promotion!

Thank you Bill. I watched Kansas City's WTCQD event video. You had a good time too, for sure. I must tell you that here in Mumbai, in the program organised by Sifu Carlton Hill, we were sporting the WTCQD T-shirt more than in Kansas!
It is a beautiful T-shirt and we felt proud wearing it.

York, Pennsylvania (USA) & BBC (UK) Coverage Illustrate the VALUE of MEDIA EXPOSURE!
York, Pennsylvania (USA)'s population is about 40,000, and BBC News, United Kingdom, reaches millions.
I went to school in a town about half the size of York, PA. The hometown newspapers are WIDELY read as THE SOURCE ... imagine how many York Pennsylvanians, or UK citizens and others worldwide who follow the BBC, will see these group's LARGE COLOR-PHOTOS ARTICLES (above) on Tai Chi and Qigong's benefits!
We give you tools
to get your local media's attention, and we collect media addresses
, phone numbers, emails and easy to use links for your local media. Then you can use our free WTCQD Tai Chi Medical Research Library
to find PROOF that Tai Chi can help the majority of citizens in your community (heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, chronic pain, insomnia, etc. etc.), so you can then educate the public via your media coverage about this research. Tai Chi & Qigong teachers are not wealthy, typically, so you literally CANNOT BUY MEDIA LIKE THIS.
Yes, we know, WTCQD 2015 just passed, but start thinking about "next year's WTCQD 2016 event, and bookmark our above tools for future reference.
So, you're probably thinking, "Now how much is this gonna' cost me, people don't help promote my classes/school for free?"
WHY? To make a better world. It is satisfying to contribute to the well-being of others. It makes us feel good, when we help you help others feel good. IF YOU ARE NOT A TEACHER, but a student who is benefiting from Tai Chi and Qigong, it will make you feel better to spread the word on this good thing you've found ... it will help your teacher ... and in the end it will lower health costs for the whole society.
MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDERS:
Dear World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Supporters,
A few things happened here in Kansas City that we thought we should share. Before WTCQD 2015, one of our local students put up a "World Tai Chi Day Kansas City" event page on Facebook ... we did not ask him to ... he just did it because he wanted the goals of WTCQD to expand through the planet ...
... then following the event another student took the WTCQD Kansas City event video I had produced the evening after our event ... and he posted it all over Facebook ... we did not ask him to do it ... he just did it, because he loves the idea of WTCQD, expanding Tai Chi & Qigong to create a calmer, clearer, and healthier planet.
THIS is how World Tai Chi & Qigong Day came into being ... individuals ... like you ... deciding something healing should be promoted to expand out through the fibers of the community, nation, and global mind. When these people began habitually talking about WTCQD on their emails, and in classes, and on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, etc. ... that is what made this mass global event possible ... and YOU TOO can play a role in this amazing global family of Tai Chi and Qigong connection and expansion for the betterment of society.
Forward your emails to friends. Post them and our videos, medical research, etc., on Facebook, retweet it on Twitter, and consider yourself a World Tai Chi & Qigong Day ambassador.
Yours in Qi,
Bill Douglas and Angela Wong-Douglas,
Founders of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day
