We offer tips on getting Government Bodies to Officially Proclaim your local WTCQD event for your city/state/nation. We also offer those new to Mind Body Arts tips on getting the most from them, and we also offer Mind Body Teachers tips on how to get your teaching into society at ALL levels; Corporate Wellness, Education, Penal/Prison Rehabilitation, Senior Care, and Hospitals and Health Networks.

BE SURE TO "JOIN OUR NEWSLETTER", see top of home page. This way you can stay up to date with the global Tai Chi & Qigong community happenings, and get tips for being involved or organizing WTCQD events locally. We also keep you up to date on Scientific Research on Mind Body practices like Tai Chi & Qigong, and also on THE GLOBAL TRANSFORMATION PROJECT, https://globaltransformationproject.org/ 's progress (see below). We are building a worldwide Mind Body Movement (Tai Chi, Yoga, Meditation, Chi Kung, Mindfulness) involving top Scientists, Health, Education Experts who believe it is high time Mind Body Education becomes part of Public Education worldwide ... to save the world trillioins in future health & social costs.

The Founders of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day, William & Angela Wong Douglas, spent 40 years collecting Mind Body and Consciousness and Social/Behavioral Science that led to their writing a 700 page meticulously cited book of Science ("New 2nd Edition; The Gospel of Science ..." see below), which led to involvement in The Global Transformation Project. This Project's goal is gaining a United Nations Resolution by the UN General Assembly advocating Mind Body Education for Public Education worldwide. YOU CAN GET INVOLVED!  At the Global Transformation Project website, you can SIGN THE PETITION for this UN Resolution ... William & Angela (Founders of WTCQD) have committed to lobbying every United Nations Mission in the world to get Co-Sponsors for this historic resolution. There is a precedent for this, because in 2015 the UN General Assembly passed the International Day of Yoga Resolution, setting a record in the UN for the most co-sponsors of any resolution before. This World Yoga Day, following the establishment of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day, resolution was based on the same reasoning as The Global Transformation Project's goal of expanding world health and increasing mental clarity in the world.

RELEASED on JANUARY 1ST, 2022 ... a new book from the Founders of World Tai Chi and Qigong Day, 2nd Edition of "The Gospel of Science: Mind Blowing New Science on Ancient Truths to Heal Our Stress, Lives, and Planet." 700 pages of meticulously cited scientific research showing how Alph-Theta Brain Wave producing Mind-Body Education (Tai Chi, Qigong, Yoga, Meditation, Mindfulness) included as a core part of Public Education worldwide can: Save the planet trillions of dollars in future saved healthcare costs, reduce violence and social issues, and literally increase "coherent consciousness" throughout the entire planet! This unique publication will explain the rationale behind the World Tai Chi and Qigong Day sponsored "GLOBAL TRANSFORMATION PROJECT," a global Campaign for a UNITED NATIONS RESOLUTION-ADVOCATING SCIENCE BASED MIND-BODY EDUCATION (Tai Chi, Qigong, Yoga, Meditation, and Mindfulness) AS A CORE PART OF PUBIC EDUCATION WORLDWIDE.

This unprecedented publication provides just received data, showing that events like "World Tai Chi and Qigong Day" "International Day of Yoga" "World Meditation Day", etc. LITERALLY INCREASED the "COHERENCE OF CONSCIOUSNESS" PLANET WIDE!

The science is in on this ... time to USE SCIENCE in PUBLIC EDUCATION WORLDWIDE!
