Issue: Early 2008 February 14th
Dear World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Supporters,
World Tai Chi & Qigong Day 2008, is right around the corner, Saturday, April 26th, 2008, at 10 am local time worldwide.
When we ordered T-Shirts we didn't have enough minimum order to get the best rate on T-Shirts, plus this years 10th anniversary T-Shirts are red, not white, which costs a bit more as well.
So, in order to get the next best discount we could, we ordered extra in anticipation of groups and schools making more T-Shirt orders. Anyway, that was the plan.
Sooooo, to make a long story short, we still have many many Official WTCQD T-Shirts available in all sizes (S-M-L-XL-XXL). Order now!
This is the special "10th Anniversary WTCQD T-Shirts," which are black print on red cotton t-shirts, commemorating 10 years of surrounding our planet in the best wishes of a global Tai Chi & Qigong movement.
PLEASE encourage your local students, groups, and fellow Tai Chi & Qigong practitioners, and the national and international groups you belong to, to help support our global health & healing efforts by ordering Official 10th Anniversary T-Shirts.
Thank you for making this annual global health & healing effort possible. Please read on below to see just a few of the many free resources we provide the world year around, to help expand global health & healing.
Bill & Angela Wong Douglas, World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Founders
Why the DaVinci / Yin Yang Symbol ?
Many Ask Us "How did Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man, and the Yin Yang Symbol Came to be the WTCQD Logo?"
Da Vinci's Vitruvian man has long been considered the Western symbol for health & balance, just as the Yin Yang symbol has long been the Eastern symbol for health & balance.
Our increasingly modern Western style world, is getting frazzled at the edges as the speed of change is literally rattling us apart with unmanaged stress that causes 70 to 85 % of all illness according to Western medical research.
Tai Chi & Qigong come from the heart of ancient Chinese mind/body wisdom, and represent an oasis of calm that can be cultivated in our hearts, minds, and in our world. The subtle quiet stillness of Tai Chi & Qigong is permeating global culture at a time when most needed by humanity.
Fitness Manufacturer's Association's studies show that Tai Chi is the #1 fastest growing fitness industry in America, for example.
The speed of social change has been doubling exponentially every 18 months, since the advent of the information age. No generation in the history of humanity has had to face the strain of such rapid relentless change.
Our modern world is crying out for a calm and a contemplative way of handling this bone jarring nerve wracking change. (Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man).
As the quiet subtle non-contending nature of Tai Chi & Qigong expand through the world, we offer the world a lifeline in the storm (the emerging Yin Yang symbol).
Why Participate in World Tai Chi & Qigong Day?
The Answers are Complex and Layered as Tai Chi & Qigong Are!
When you participate in World Tai Chi & Qigong Day each year, year after year, we wrap the globe in a healing wave of Qi. Our events beginning in New Zealand and occurring in hundreds of cities on 6 continents to end with the final time zone of Kuaui Hawaii . . . are a global Qigong or Tai Chi movement.
Over the years our events have been seen by millions worldwide as media have broadcast and reported events in many nations.
Everything that occurs in this world contributes to the global psyche. When millions over years see our global calming events, we contribute a verse to the poetry of humanity . . . a calming, and healing verse.
In our photo gallery you see the images we speak of in our Opening Ceremony Statements provided in 6 languages.
The world sees people coming together across geographic, geopolitical, economic, racial, and religious boundaries . . . to join together . . . to breathe together in this worldwide event we call . . .
. . . One World . . . One Breath . . .
What Does World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Offer You?
Our Efforts are Ongoing and Expansive
World Tai Chi & Qigong Day accumulates Medical Research on Tai Chi & Qigong and lists it in a searchable format by malady, to help individuals learn if this is right for them, but also to help teachers, schools and organizations refer prospective students or clients to it.
This helps the public learn why local teachers and schools are so valuable.
World Tai Chi & Qigong Day provides a FREE worldwide school directory so anyone in the world can find teachers close to them, and enables teachers and schools worldwide to post for free. Each year we get tens of thousands of visitors who find local schools through us. Many email us, asking for schools and we help them either via telephone or email to find your local groups and schools. You can imagine how time consuming this can be.
Like all of you who teach, we too have local classes we have to work to maintain, so our time spent directing people worldwide to your classes, can be a big strain on us personally and financially. But, we believe in what you teach, and want to help those who contact us to find better health.
Each year we spend hundreds of hours posting photos and videos of your local World Tai Chi & Qigong Day events, in our Photo/Video Gallery, which help generate interest in this global event, that all can share thru their websites. These photos are also useful to help you get local publicity for your group classes and events, as well as engage local government in proclaiming and supporting your local efforts.
We have a FREE Health Articles Library of original articles we research and write that are generically useful to ALL styles of Tai Chi & Qigong, which you can use in your emails, on your website, or to use as promotional material to get your classes into corporations, hospitals, schools, etc.
Some of our articles are published worldwide and used frequently by teachers, schools and organizations to help interest their community in their teaching, and include timely and relavant issues your community would find of interest:
* Tai Chi and ADHD, Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder
