New Years Day Issue Jan/2008


Dear World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Supporter,


Our New Years Day 2008 New Years Message is a simple one. A 2008 New Years Wish, to manifest the deep reality of

"One World . . . One Breath."


This wish and gift are two-fold. One intellectual, and one deeply experiential.


Below you will, in six languages, find the "Opening Statement" for WTCQD events worldwide that paint a vision of expansive possibility for us and our planet . . . offered as a 2008 New Years Wish.


Also, we offer a GIFT. A Sitting Qigong Meditation called "A FREE Online Audio Relaxation Therapy," which is a 17 minute audio therapy you can enjoy right now sitting in your chair. Click here, and then select "FREE Online Audio Relaxation Therapy," to enjoy.


When I wrote this New Year Wish from WTCQD today, I was about to just send it off. BUT THEN, realized "I" should take the time to experience this experience of breath and light before encouraging you to do it.


I believe this experience can be a POWERFUL WAY TO USHER IN 2008. Our hope, my hope, is that all over the world you and others will take 17 minutes on this day and in coming days, to stop, and breathe, with others around the world using this free gift experience from us. We apologize the audio is only in English at this time:

Click here, and then select "FREE Online Audio Relaxation Therapy,"


Our hope is that our vision of personal and global health & healing, which we all have together created as a gift to the global consciousness each year . . . will contribute to the promise of a new year that we can all love living in together as a human family.


"One World . . . One Breath."


Bill & Angela Wong Douglas, Founders of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day

ENGLISH Wish: "One World . . . One Breath"




ENGLISH:

Dear World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Supporters & Participants,

This global wave of goodwill provides a vision of hope and healing to a world hungry for such visions. Each year to view the photos of people from different cultures, religions, and every corner of the earth . . . breathing together . . . in this global Tai Chi & Qigong movement . . . is profound.



When you look thru the photographs and videos you see that "look" on people's faces, a look that conveys a feeling that all of us who've experienced the well-being that Qi, or life energy, expands through our mind and body when we make the space to breathe . . . and to let, calm, and wellness expand thru us.



When you see that look in all these diverse faces, from so many different lands, you can't help but deeply realize that we are indeed "one world . . . and, . . . one breath."



We are all connected by the field of life energy that physicists are now discovering permeates all existence.



By emersing ourselves in the field of life energy again and again, we become more and more grounded in the absolute reality that . . . we are all connected . . . all part of the web of life. And, by cultivating and growing the realization personally and globally, we may help in a subtle quiet way to usher in a more elegant future that nurtures us all in ways we cannot yet even imagine.



Again, thank you for making this extraordinary event and health movement possible thru your organizing and participation each year.



Sincerely,



Bill Douglas & Angela Wong Douglas, Co-Founders of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day

"één wereld . . . en, . . . één adem "




één wereld . . . en, . . . één adem

Boodschap van Bill Douglas en zijn team van het Internationale Centrum voor Wereld Tai chi & Qigong dag aan al de deelnemers aan dit wereldgebeuren.



Deze wereldomvattende golf van welwillendheid zorgt voor een visie van hoop en heling in een wereld die hunkert naar dit soort visies. Elk jaar de fotos zien van mensen van verschillende culturen, godsdiensten en van elke hoek van de aard . . . samen ademend . . . in deze wereld T'ai Chi & Qigong beweging maakt een diepe indruk.





Wanneer je de foto's en video's bekijkt dan zie je die blik op het gezicht van de mensen, een blik die een gevoel uitdrukt dat wij allemaal ervaren hebben door het welzijn dat Qi, of de levensenergie, verspreidt door onze geest en ons lichaam wanneer we ruimte maken om te ademen . . . en om kalmte en goedheid zich in ons te laten uitbreiden





Wanneer je deze blik ziet in al die verschillende gezichten, van zoveel




verschillende landen, dan kan je niet anders dan je heel diep realiseren dat we inderdaad "één wereld . . . en, . . . één adem " zijn.





We zijn allemaal verbonden door het veld van levensenergie, dat fysici nu aan 't ontdekken zijn en dat alles wat bestaat doordringt.





Door onszelf telkens opnieuw in dit veld van levensenergie te begeven, worden we meer en meer gegrondvest in de absolute realiteit dat . . . we allemaal verbonden zijn . . . allemaal deel zijn van het levensweb. En, door dit besef aan te kweken en te doen groeien zowel persoonlijk als op wereldvlak, kunnen we op een subtiele rustige manier helpen om ons binnen te leiden in een elegantere toekomst die ons allemaal voedt op een manier die we ons nog niet eens kunnen voorstellen..





Nogmaals, dank jullie om dit buitengewone gebeuren en deze gezondheids-beweging mogelijk te maken door jullie organisatie en jullie deelname elk jaar.





Heel hartelijk,





Bill Douglas & Angela Wong Douglas,

Medestichters van World Tai Chi & Qigong Day

"un solo mundo... y... un solo aliento."


"un solo mundo... y... un solo aliento."

Estimados participantes y patrocinadores de la celebración del Día Mundial del Tai Chi y Qi Gong:



Esta onda global de buena voluntad proporciona una visión de esperanza y curación a un mundo hambriento de tales visiones. Cada año al ver las fotos de personas de diversas culturas, religiones, y de cada confín de la tierra... respirando juntos... en este movimiento global de Tai Chi y de Chi Kung... es profundamente inspirador.



Cuando usted mira las fotografías y los videos usted ve la "mirada" en las caras de las personas, una mirada que sintetiza una sensación que todos nosotros los que hemos tenido esa experiencia del bienestar que se adquiere a través del manejo del Qi, o energía de la vida, que se expande a través de nuestra mente y cuerpo cuando nos tomamos el tiempo para respirar. . . y calmarnos, y dejar que la salud se amplíe en nosotros.



Cuando usted ve esa mirada especial en todas estas caras diversas, de tantas y diversas tierras, usted no puede dejar de realizar profundamente que somos de hecho "un solo mundo... y... un solo aliento."



Todos estamos conectados por el campo de la energía de la vida que los físicos ahora están descubriendo y que, de hecho, impregna toda la existencia.



Al sumergirnos en el campo de la energía de la vida repetidas veces, nos convencemos más y más de la absoluta realidad... de que todos estamos conectados... de que todos somos parte del enrejado de la vida. Y, cultivando y creciendo lo realizado tanto personal como globalmente, podemos ayudar de una manera sutil y reservada a llevar a un futuro que nos consolide a todos de maneras que no podemos todavía incluso imaginarnos.



Una vez más gracias por hacer este acontecimiento y movimiento extraordinarios de la salud directo posible a través de su participación activa.



Sinceramente,



Bill Douglas & Angela Wong Douglas, Co-Fundadores del Día Mundial del Tai Chi y Qi Gong.

"un seul monde . . . et un seul souffle"


"un seul monde . . . et un seul souffle"

Lettre de l'organisateur de la Journée Mondiale du Tai Chi et Qigong




Chers amis qui participez à la Journée Mondiale du Tai Chi et Qigong, ou qui la soutenez,



Cette vague mondiale de bonne volonté apporte une vision d'espoir et de guérison à un monde qui a soif de telles visions. Voir chaque année les photos de personnes de différentes cultures, religions, de tous les coins de la terre . . . respirant ensemble dans ce mouvement mondial de Tai Chi et Qigong, est une expérience profonde.



Lorsqu'on regarde toutes ces photos et vidéos, on découvre une même expression sur les visages : une expression qui traduit le sentiment ressenti par nous tous qui vivons ce bien-être diffusé par le Qi ou énergie vitale dans notre esprit et notre corps quand nous créons l'espace pour respirer . . . et laissons la tranquillité, le contentement se développer en nous.



Lorsqu'on voit cette expression sur tous ces visages différents, originaires de tant de pays différents, on ne peut que réaliser profondément que nous sommes véritablement « un seul monde . . . et un seul souffle »



Nous sommes tous reliés par le champ d'énergie vitale qui pénètre toute existence, selon les découvertes de la physique actuelle. En nous immergeant régulièrement dans ce champ d'énergie vitale, nous devenons de plus en plus enracinés dans cette réalité absolue que nous sommes tous reliés, que nous participons tous de la trame de la vie. Et en cultivant et développant cette prise de conscience, individuellement et globalement, nous pouvons contribuer d'une manière tranquille et subtile à faire naître un avenir plus radieux qui nous nourrira tous d'une façon qu'il est encore difficile d'imaginer.



Merci encore de rendre possible cet évènement extraordinaire et cette action pour la santé, grâce à votre participation et votre organisation chaque année.



Sincèrement,



Bill Douglas et Angela Wong Douglas, co-fondateurs de la Journée Mondiale du Tai Chi et du Qigong

"un solo mondo . . . e . . . un solo respiro"




"un solo mondo . . . e . . . un solo respiro"

Dichiarazione di apertura della Giornata Mondiale del Tai Chi e Qigong



Cari partecipanti e sostenitori della Giornata Mondiale del Tai Chi e Qi,


questa ondata mondiale di buona volontà dà una immagine di speranza e di guarigione a un mondo affamato di tali immagini. Ogni anno vedere le foto di persone di differenti culture, religioni e da tutti gli angoli della terra ... respirare insieme ... in questo movimento globale di Tai Chi e Qi ... è una esperienza profonda.


Quando guardiamo queste foto o video, scopriamo una stessa espressione sui volti: una espressione che trasmette il sentimento sperimentato da tutti noi che viviamo questo benessere diffuso dal Qi, o energia vitale, nella nostra mente e nel nostro corpo quando creiamo lo spazio per respirare ... e lasciamo che la calma e la tranquillità si espandano in noi.


Quando vediamo questa espressione su tutti questi visi differenti, provenienti da tanti paesi differenti, non possiamo che comprendere che siamo veramente "un solo mondo ... e ... un solo respiro"


Siamo tutti uniti dal campo di energia vitale che gli scienziati hanno ora scoperto permeare tutta l'esistenza.


Immergendoci regolarmente in questo campo di energia vitale, sempre più ci radichiamo in questa realtà assoluta che ... siamo tutti uniti ... tutti parte della trama della vita. E coltivando e sviluppando questa consapevolezza individualmente e globalmente, possiamo contribuire in modo tranquillo e sottile a far nascere un futuro più raffinato che ci nutrirà tutti in un modo che neppure possiamo immaginare.


Grazie ancora per aver reso possibile questo straordinario evento e questo movimento salutare, tramite la vostra annuale organizzazione e partecipazione.


Sinceramente,


Bill Douglas e Angela Wong Douglas, Co-Fondatori della Giornata Mondiale del Tai Chi e Qigong

"um mundo . . . uma respiração"


"um mundo ... uma respiração".


"MENSAGEM DA ORGANIZAÇÃO INTERNACIONAL DO DIA MUNDIAL DO TAI CHI & CHI KUNG PARA CADA UM DE VOCÊS E PARA TODOS AQUELES QUE, NAS DIFERENTES CIDADES DESTE PLANETA, HOJE SE REÚNEM PARA UMA CELEBRAÇÃO MUNDIAL:



Esta onda global de boa vontade e otimismo induz a uma visão de esperança, bem-estar e paz para um mundo carente desses valores. A cada ano paramos um pouquinho para olhar as imagens dos povos das mais diferentes religiões e culturas, que se encontram nos mais diversos cantos da terra ... respirando juntos ... num movimento universal de energia do Tai Chi & Chi Kung ... isso tem um profundo significado de Unidade.



Quando você olha as fotos e os vídeos, vê estampado nas faces das pessoas um sorriso interior e um brilho no olhar que transmite o sentimento daquilo que todos nós experimentamos: o sabor do Chi, o bem-estar que essa energia vital proporciona ao se expandir pelas nossas mentes e corpos quando nos dispomos a simplesmente respirar ... e nos entregamos à quietude e à calma, e toda vitalidade se expande a partir do nosso interior.



Quando você observa olhares tão diferentes, em rostos tão diferentes, de terras tão diferentes, comungando um êxtase de tranqüilidade e harmonia, saiba que você pode concretamente realizar o que todos com certeza sonhamos: "um mundo ... uma respiração".



Estamos todos conectados, interligados por uma incomensurável onda energética, um campo de energia da vida que a física quântica agora confirma que permeia toda a existência. Emergindo seguidamente nesse campo vibracional da energia vital, nos tornamos mais e mais convictos dessa realidade absoluta ... nós todos somos ligados ... como elos de uma corrente ou como todas as partes da cadeia receptora da vida. E cultivando as sementes da nossa realização pessoal, ajudamos também num crescimento global, de uma forma equilibrada, participando da construção de um futuro mais alegre e saudável que nos nutrirá a todos de uma maneira que jamais, ainda, podemos imaginar. "

Thanks to New York Times Best Selling Novelist


Thanks Steve Alten, "The Shell Game" Author


New York Times Best Selling Novelist, Steve Alten, (author of the upcoming "The Shell Game") was kind enough to mention World Tai Chi & Qigong Day's efforts in his massive fan base newsletter.


You may remember, from our last newsletter:


Also, a couple of weeks ago, we were contacted by a New York Times Best Selling Author, named Steve Alten, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, and through our ongoing public education work has discovered and begun enjoying Tai Chi & Qigong as part of his ongoing health therapy regimen.


Steve Alten is author of Fathom (1998); Goliath (2002); The Loch (2005); and his newest action thriller coming out on January 22, 2007 is the already highly acclaimed, "THE SHELL GAME," which will be available in all major book stores and online book sellers.


We wish Steve the best of luck in his life journey, and with his new upcoming action thriller novel. You can PRE-ORDER Steve's upcoming novel "The Shell Game" at amazon.com or bn.com.


Steve sent me a pre-view copy of his upcoming action thriller. I am a big fiction fan, and his book was a page-turning relentlessly pulse-pounding action thriller. If you love action fiction, I think you'll love Steve's novel [Bill Douglas].


Learn more about Tai Chi and Parkinson's Disease.

Join the World in This Experience of Light & Release, to Usher in 2008!!




Take 17 Minutes with the World to Breathe and Lighten !!

This Sitting Qigong Meditation called "A FREE Online Audio Relaxation Therapy," which is a 17 minute audio therapy, you can enjoy right now sitting in your chair. Click here, and then select "FREE Online Audio Relaxation Therapy," to enjoy.

Our 2008 New Years hope is that thousands of you around the planet, will do what I just did, and take 17 minutes right now to "breathe" "lift" and "light" with this audio gift . . . so that we might together usher in a global wave of release of the old . . . and opening to the lightness of possibility for the new.


Please share the above link, with all you know on this special day, and in coming days.





Thank you all for creating ten years of global health & healing visions for the world with us. Native Americans believed that sacred dance brings our visions and hopes down to ground into the Earth.


As we, a global community of Tai Chi & Qigong practitioners, gently earth our visions and hopes for a better life and world year after year . . . we provide the world with something special . . . something sacred . . . to see and participate in among the often meaningless stampeding noise that is modern media and life.


Again, thank you all so very much for being part of this meaningful vision we all are earthing together.


Sincerely,




World Tai Chi & Qigong Day
