Welcome! The World's #1 source for Tai Chi and Qigong!
One World ... One Breath
Spreading Calm, Peace, and Well-being across the planet ... with the medical research to back it up!
For over two decades, a quiet subtle phenomenon has grown across the planet. Each year, on the "last Saturday of April," in 100s of cities in over 80 nations, spanning 6 continents... World Tai Chi & Qigong Day mass teach-ins and exhibitions have been held around the planet all on the same day... creating a worldwide wave of Tai Chi and Qigong.
Events reached over ONE BILLION potential mass media readers/viewers with information/medical research on the mind-body practices of Tai Chi and Qigong. This event has been officially proclaimed by government officials and govt. bodies globally. David Dorian Ross (Tai Chi Champion/PBS Presenter) dubbed it "24 Hours of World Peace."
Why do we do this? This site and annual event educates people worldwide about the profound health and life benefits of Tai Chi and Qigong (and connects them to local teachers), which according to medical research, could save our planet trillions of dollars in saved health costs. But, our event also brings together the worldwide community of Tai Chi and Qigong enthusiasts and teachers, as one family, providing the world a vision of connection and cooperation around personal and global health and healing. The event's motto is "One World... One Breath".
