World Tai Chi and Qigong (Chi Kung) Day's ultimate goal is to see Tai Chi and Chi Kung taught as part of public education's main curriculum worldwide.

By doing so, within one generation (12 years) the world could be populated with an entire generation of Tai Chi and Qigong masters. Imagine the global implications!

70 to 85% of illness in the industrialized world is caused by stress. In the US alone health care costs will soon reach over $4 trillion per year. By educating an entire generation in powerful stress management mind/body tools, we could save trillions worldwide in coming years.  Some schools are already taking the lead!


Is it time to think about uniting the worldwide Tai Chi & Qigong family of health & wellness teachers in mutually supportive efforts? You'll find that
www.WorldTaiChiDay.org creates a space where we can all support one another, support the expansion of Tai Chi & Qigong worldwide, and through that support global health & healing.

By working together we can envision a day when Tai Chi and Chi Kung are taught in public education worldwide, creating a healthier, clearer, calmer world. See an example.

DELPHOS — A local pastor thinks there could be a little more reverence in church these days, and he thinks a Chinese martial art is just the thing to help.

That's why the Rev. Thomas Gorman of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church is bringing a tai chi instructor to work with Delphos St. John's School students this month.

"I have found that the children with training in martial arts and ballet show a much greater presence physically during church services," Gorman said. "They are much more capable of physical reverence, focus and attention."

Tai chi instructor Tesa Jordan will work with elementary through high school students beginning Feb 13. She will be there for two weeks. Free sessions for the public will be available from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. those days in the elementary school's Little Theater.

KELLI CARDINAL and The Lima News - Instructor Tesa Jordan performs tai chi for St. John's students during a demonstration Thursday in the high school gymnasium in Delphos. Jordan will be working with students at the school teaching the art of tai chi.





World Tai Chi & Qigong Day founder, Bill Douglas, has taught Tai Chi & Qigong for students and teaching staffs, from elementary through university. Many teachers worldwide are beginning to incorporate these powerful mind/body health tools into public education at all levels.

Recent research indicating Tai Chi may help save children from a lifetime of drug use, by reducing the symptoms of ADHD (Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder) -- [University of Miami School of Medicine study], is good news for ALL students, even those without ADHD, because it increases health and ability to focus in all students.

This is especially important to students who may be genius level students, too often mis-diagnosed as having ADHD.
