World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Supporters
Folks, I have just climbed a MOUNTAIN, and I've seen the mountain top !!
What an extraordinary group of people we've become!! Brilliant organizers, fantastic photographers, and people worldwide who want to help create a vision together, of personal and global health & healing . . . is a sight to behold.
Please take a few minutes, or half hour, or an hour or two to browse thru the World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Photo Gallery.
Go to www.worldtaichiday.org and click on the graphic
. . . and THEN FORWARD IT ON TO EVERY CONTACT YOU HAVE, and to all Tai Chi & Qigong organizations and associations throughout your state and nation. [An automatic forwarding feature is at the bottom of this email.]
Since our WTCQD event was over last Saturday, I've been downloading, sizing, posting, and uploading 70 MILLION bytes of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day PHOTOS from 2007 events. [That's a ton when you're working with 72 dpi photos.]
Try it sometime. Wait, on the other hand . . . :-)
But seriously, it was a mammoth task, BUT the messages, and photos sent in from people worldwide working to promote personal and global health & healing, was in many ways a spiritual experience.
THANK YOU ALL for making this extraordinary global event occur!!
PLEASE Check for ERRORS in PHOTO Postings
When entering a mountain of photo postings . . . mistakes will be made :-)
So, please go through the photos of WTCQD events, and make sure the photos you sent in are posted.
NOTE: If you had a 2006 event, when you go into your photos, you'll see a "CLICK HERE for 2007 Photos"
PLEASE click that for your 2007 photos.
THEN let us know if there is anything amiss about your photo postings or your accompanying message.
SEND in Your Photos IF YOU HAVEN'T
If you've already sent in 2007 photos . . . please don't send more at this point, if we have them posted.
If you have sent them and we messed up and didn't post them let us know.
However, if we did post them, but you have more . . . please wait a while to send them in. We're swamped getting up the ones that haven't had any posted yet.
So, again, if your event does not have any 2007 photos posted yet . . . PLEASE SEND THEM IN.
Include a brief description and/or a message of what WTCQD 2007 meant to you and your local participants.
If You SEND IN PHOTOS SEND THEM TO . . .
If you have photos to send, DO NOT send them in a reply to this email.
Rather send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
-- Your CITY/STATE/Country of event photos depict
-- a brief message about your local event.
-- websites urls of groups or schools included in your photos (if possible).
-- include in the brief message your thoughts on what WTCQD 2007 meant to you and/or your group
-- also, include any thoughts on what the "Opening Message" meant to your event.
Please send them as a JPEG ATTACHMENT TO YOUR EMAIL.
Please DO NOT reduce them in size. We like to have the full size photo, in case a magazine or media would like to publish them in the future, they'll need a high resolution.
NOTE: You may need to send in several emails with a couple of photos attached to each one, if the size is too big for our email server to handle.
Once you send your emails, look out for fail messages, that may alert you if your photos did not come thru for any reason.
WTCQD has Added Many New Cities, and Several New Nation's Photos this Year !!
We added photos from newly created events in several US states, and in various nations this year.
Next year's 2008 event is going to be the pinnacle of our global health & healing movement. For it will be the TENTH ANNIVERSARY OF WORLD TAI CHI & QIGONG DAY !!
Coincidentally, it will be the year of the upcoming Beijing Olympics 2008, so there will be much attention to Tai Chi & Qigong by global media.
PLEASE dedicate yourself this year to reaching out to Tai Chi & Qigong enthusiasts, groups, teachers, schools, organizations, and associations worldwide . . . to urge them to generate MASS involvement in World Tai Chi & Qigong Day 2008.
We at WTCQD have worked to promote such organizations as the "European Taiji & Qigong Federation," the "Canadian Taijiquan Federation," "The Tai Chi Union for Great Britain," "The National Qigong Association," The "World Qigong Federation," etc., providing all with direct weblinks from the highly trafficked home page of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day
If you belong to one of these groups, please urge your contacts in these and other national and international Tai Chi & Qigong associations to make World Tai Chi & Qigong Day 2008 (and beyond) their own. We promote everyone, and with their help we can help them spread their wisdom, knowledge and skills out to create a clearer, healthier world
. . . through collaboration in this spectacular annual global media event. The convergence of "WTCQD's 10th Anniversary," (One World . . . One Breath) with the advent of the "Beijing 2008 Olympics," (One World . . . One Dream) . . . the global media will be turning towards eastern concepts like Tai Chi & Qigong. Our hope is the global Tai Chi & Qigong community can put aside any differences, and take advantage of this global convergence of possibility approaching in 2008.
Tai Chi Magazine, Taijiquan Magazine, Qi Journal, and all the Tai Chi & Qigong associations and groups worldwide, can use World Tai Chi & Qigong Day as a vehicle to further their good works in promoting Tai Chi & Qigong to the world.
By working together, there is a world of possibility. Before World Tai Chi & Qigong Day, pretty much the only time Tai Chi & Qigong groups came together was to compete. World Tai Chi & Qigong Day has ushered in a new paradigm, whereby we all collectively help the world learn of amazing mind/body sciences that can help create a clearer healthier personal life, social life, and global life.
Medical research shows just how profoundly these tools affect physical health. Emerging research indicates they have a "social" healing effect. By advancing a mass public embrace of these mind/body tools . . . we literally can change the world.
