How Was Your World Tai Chi and Qigong Day?
World Tai Chi Day and Qigong Day is an annual worldwide event that occurs on the last Saturday in April. It is celebrated in over 100 cities and 80 nations where people come together to breathe together, providing a healing vision for our world — “one nation, one breath”. Starting at 10:00 a.m. local time (April 28 for the Eastern world) there is one mass demonstration of Tai Chi and Qigong. Picture it as a giant wave of energy: starting in Australia, throughout Asia, Africa and continuing to all the continents. Think of it as a giant wave of energy that continuously moves for 24 hours!
Most organized events consist of the mass demonstration at 10:00 a.m. followed by demonstrations of Tai Chi and Qigong forms by various schools. A few highlights from other countries and cities are below:
In addition to demonstrations of various styles of Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong, our celebration included a display of healing modalities such as Shen Men ear seeds, creating personal mandalas, and printed information on the benefits of Qigong and Tai Chi Chuan.
No matter how you celebrated this event the goal was to share energy among colleagues in your immediate surroundings as well as around the world.
