Hello World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Supporters,

We hope that all of you are well, and your Tai Chi and Qigong practice is thriving, for yourself and those you share these profound life tools with.

Our goal here is to further the spread of Tai Chi & Qigong worldwide until these tools become part of the normal workplace, part of education, and part of all aspects of life . . . to help bring clarity into all human activities. So far this year we have directed over 35,000 potential new students to your local schools worldwide via our free Schools Directory service. Together we can do more, and help our world become clearer, calmer, and healthier together.

How Can We Grow This Global Healing Effort?


Please post the below announcement on any health related bulletin boards; forums; etc. And email it out to any health lists you can, and to everyone else who may be interested.

THE MESSAGE TO EMAIL: Please get involved in World Tai Chi & Qigong Day. This global health & healing event held annually in 60 nations works to expand global cooperation and mutual support for the sole purpose of health & healing. This event educates the world of powerful natural health techniques that could save trillions of dollars annually in saved health care costs, if widely implimented through public education, business, healthcare etc. However, this event also offers a profound vision year after year of how we can come together as a global society, breathing together in a mass movement of health. Our motto, "One World . . . One Breath" brings this message home to the world year after year. HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED? You may be asking. If you are an individual, you can find local Tai Chi or Qigong schools who are involved, by visiting and clicking on "Everyones Resources," and then "Schools Directory." If you are a teacher or part of a Tai Chi & Qigong school already, you can visit and click on "School Resources." There you'll see where you can list your school for free, and your coming WTCQD event. You'll find free Organizing Kits, to walk you thru organizing a WTCQD event, getting media attention, and you'll also find a comprehensive Medical Research section where Tai CHi & Qigong medical research is provided so you can use it in press releases or public promotions of your coming WTCQD event and local classes.

Why Should Tai Chi & QG Teachers Work "TOGETHER" ?


Over the years we've seen some cities where many Tai Chi and Qigong teachers come together to create massive WTCQD events, while others work more individually. Los Angeles, California was an inspiration for many cities when years ago they pulled off one of the first massive collaborative events.

Why aren't schools cooperating and coming together more to create MASSIVE WTCQD events. Many reasons, but one is that until World Tai Chi & Qigong Day was created, typically schools only came together to "compete." WTCQD has created a paradigm shift, where now we come together solely for mutual support and promotion. Here in Kansas City there are perhaps a dozen schools of Tai Chi. At most we probably teach a few hundred people. There is a feeling that we are competing over those few hundred students. What I ask teachers here to realize is that, by working together to promote MASS MEDIA WTCQD EVENTS each year, perhaps we could get 1 PERCENT of Kansas Cities 2 million people interested in Tai Chi. This would add up to 20,000 new students to Tai Chi & Qigong . . . more than even our current students would be able to teach. We do not have to struggle for pieces of a small pizza, but rather create a larger pizza !! The medical research at that we collect and distribute for free, is very valuable to you, your community and our world. The breaking medical research of what Tai Chi & Qigong offers us all is profound, and hugely important for all to know about. Our health media is not doing a very good job of informing people about non-drug, non-surgical health solutions. So, we must do media work locally, nationally, and worldwide to educate the masses. World Tai Chi & Qigong Day offers an opportunity to do massive global media events, so that we can get media attention, and with that attention turn the camera and spot light on emerging research on how Tai Chi boosts immune system function, reduces or eliminates chronic pain conditions, reduces depression, anxiety, etc. These conditions affect billions of people . . . who for the most part are still unaware of what Tai Chi & Qigong offer their lives.

Imagine a World . . .


Imagine a world where children, beginning in kindergarten, were taught (in age appropriate ways) the breathing, self awareness, and balancing techniques that Tai Chi & Qigong have evolved over hundreds and thousands of years of development.

Imagine that when they graduate high school, after 1 hour a day of Tai Chi, Qigong, Yoga, etc. training in PE classes . . . they all graduate Tai Chi, Qigong, and Yoga masters, able to affect their blood pressure, heart rate, etc. at will. Imagine husbands and wives who can affect their biochemstry to relieve depression and anxiety, rather than suffering it and inflicting it on their families. Imagine that because these new adults are so well trained in these arts, and so aware of what they offer . . . that every business meeting, court proceeding, session of Congress, and United Nations meeting . . . began with a Qigong Meditation to "clarify" before beginning, to "calm" before beginning. Imagine that billions worldwide come together each year to "breath together" on a special day, knowing that the billions of others worldwide are "feeling" the same release and relief and wonder of life that they are feeling. How would this affect our world? The answer is obvious. It would transform everything for the better. Every desicion people make would have an element of common good woven into it.
