World Tai Chi & Qigong (Chi Kung) Day in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, United States

Winston-Salem, NC

In the downtown arts district of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, about 120 people gathered in the street in front of the Golden Flower Tai Chi™ Center to celebrate World Tai Chi & Qigong Day on Saturday, April 30.

Under overcast skies the Living Rhythms Community Drumming Choir got everything off to a rousing start as people danced and clapped along with the drums.

Annukka Holland, Senior Instructor of the Golden Flower Center, which hosted the event, welcomed the crowd and read a proclamation from Mayor Allen Joines declaring April 30, 2005 as World Tai Chi & Qigong Day in Winston-Salem, NC.

Master San Gee Tam, founder of the Golden Flower Tai Chi Center and School, led the crowd in various warm-up exercises and a meditation to put everyone in touch with the millions of people practicing Tai Chi around the world. Instructors from the area – Annette Boss, Michael Joyce, Master Zhou and Three Treasures – led the crowd in an exploration of Tai Chi and Chi Kung styles and forms accompanied by drums and guitar. The crowd eagerly participated; very few stood on the sidelines!

Even though rain threatened all morning the enthusiastic crowd kept the rain away throughout the entire celebration that ended with the Merging Heaven and Earth meditation and then more drumming and dancing as people drifted inside to visit with each other and talk with the various instructors. Only when the barricades were lifted to re-open the street to traffic did the raindrops begin to fall.

Thank you to all who participated for making World Tai Chi and Qigong Day 2005 a joyous event. We hope to see all of you again next year.
