Re: WTCQD Photos of Your Events on Saturday

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Please frame your photos of your upcoming events, so that you can capture the beauty of your Tai Chi players, and also the beauty of your city, region or nation.

Its good to have shots of specific players, but also shots of the entire group participating together in mass.

NOTE: Although we encourage all to begin sending in your WTCQD event photos after this Saturday's event, it will probably take us a couple of weeks or so to actually unveil the expanded WTCQD photo gallery. As always, send photos as they are (do not shrink them), as publications may want to use them in the future, so we'll need high resolution photos. Also, send websites of participating groups/schools included in photos you send. Keep any descriptions very brief, but feel free to comment on the emotions or inspirations WTCQD evoked in you and your group.

"Opening Message for World Tai Chi & QG Day" - 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

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

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.

DUTCH "Opening Message"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Boodschap van Bill Douglas en zijn team van het Internationale Centrum voor WereldTaichi&Qigongdag 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 aarde . . . 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
