Dear World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Supporters!




If you have never taken the time to Forward our World Tai Chi & Qigong Day emails to your friends, students, or Tai Chi & Qigong groups (local and national), TODAY is the day, we hope you'll take a moment to do so. At the bottom of this email you'll see an "auto forwarding" feature you can use. WHY is this one so important? Because Tai Chi & Qigong's profound implications for humanity are being realized, and you can help further that healing effect.



Today a World Tai Chi & Qigong Day supporter named Jim, informed us that one of Oprah's Book Club selections, entitled "A New Earth, Awakening to Your Life's Purpose" (by Eckhart Tolle) extols the virtues of Tai Chi and Qigong as playing an important role in the global awakening of humanity (Page 158).



If you agree with this author that Tai Chi & Qigong's mind body sciences are playing an important role in the illumination of human consciousness . . . the you must realize that our ten years of work together as a global Tai Chi & Qigong family celebrating the global Tai Chi & Qigong movement we all call "World Tai Chi & Qigong Day" has been a profound part of that global illumination.



THANK YOU ALL, for making this global health & healing effort possible. On a practical side we have spread health & medical information out to millions worldwide through media attention of our annual global event, and the "Medical Research" section at WorldTaiChiDay.org's Media and Resources sections. Where we've meticulously gathered breaking health research over the years.



However, beyond that, our global connection with one another across racial, ethnic, economic, and geo-political boundaries to remind the globe year after year that we are . . . One World . . . One Breath . . . has been equally important at this crucial time in human history, when 6 billion people stretch the planet, and the speed of rapid modern change is rattling many apart through ongoing and relentless stress.



Oprah Winfrey's producer has a webpage that asks for story ideas. PERHAPS THIS IS THE YEAR OPRAH WOULD BE INTERESTED IN WORLD TAI CHI & QIGONG DAY'S PART IN THIS GLOBAL AWAKENING HER BOOK CLUB AUTHOR SO ELOQUENTLY WROTE OF.



YOU CAN CONTACT OPRAH WITH A SHOW IDEA AT:

www.oprah.com/email/reach/email_showideas.jhtml



Please feel free to put your suggestion in your own words. However, to save busy people time, below is the message I sent, in case you'd like to use it as a template for your message to Oprah:




***********************************************




Dear Oprah Producers,



I was very excited to learn that Oprah's book club pick, "A New Earth, Awakening to Your Life's Purpose" by Eckhart Tolle extols the virtues of Tai Chi and Qigong as playing an important role in the global awakening of humanity (Page 158).



I have a show idea you may be very interested in, about a global health & healing event's 10th anniversary coming up on Saturday, April 26, 2008, 10 am worldwide in 63 nations and all 50 US states.



World Tai Chi & Qigong Day has wrapped the global in a global Tai Chi & Qigong movement in hundreds of cities as the planet turns for nearly 10 years now on the last Saturday of April each year. It has been recognized officially by the United Nations World Health Organization, senates, governors, and mayors of many states and nations.



You can learn more about World Tai Chi & Qigong Day (WTCQD) at the international organizing center's website, WorldTaiChiDay.org



You can view photos of the spectacularly visual events from around the world, from Bolivia to Canada, and from South Africa to Norway, and from Siberia to Israel




There will be a massive event in New York City's Central Park, as well as hundreds of events throughout all 50 US states, and Oprah is welcome to attend any one of them. She can obtain contact information for local events at WorldTaiChiDay.org or by calling WTCQD founder, Bill Douglas, at 913-648-2256. All events are FREE and open to the public worldwide, and many involve free Tai Chi and Qigong workshops. Most are held in lovely natural outdoor settings or in quaint public urban settings.



Warmest regards!

We've all worked 10 long years to create this unprecedented global health & healing movement together . . . perhaps now is our time to get the media attention World Tai Chi & Qigong Day, Tai Chi & Qigong, and your local work changing the world . . . deserve.



Together we can make a difference, just as we have for ten years together. PLEASE not only email Oprah's Producers to encourage them to cover World Tai Chi & Qigong Day's 2008 10th Anniversary, BUT ALSO FORWARD this email on to your fellow Tai Chi & Qigong practitioners, to your school, to your students, to your local and national TC and QG organizations.

World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Founder Invited to Present at Parkinson's Unity Walk in New York's Central Park !




On World Tai Chi & Qigong Day 2008, WTCQD Founder, Invited to Make History!!


Each year in New York's Central Park, a celebrity studded Unity Walk is held to raise funds and public awareness of Parkinson's Disease and the race for a cure. Michael J. Fox, etc. have attended past events.

World Tai Chi & Qigong Day founder, Bill Douglas, has been invited to lead Walk participants in an introduction to Tai Chi & Qigong for their 2008 event.

This Unity Walk has been held and will be in 2008 on the same day as World Tai Chi & Qigong Day!

So, there will be the usual massive World Tai Chi & Qigong Day event held in New York's Central Park, and at the same time in another part of Central Park will be the Unity Walk, where Tai Chi & Qigong will be introduced to many involved in Parkinson's support, who may have never been exposed to Tai Chi & Qigong before.

If you attend the WTCQD event in Central Park, PLEASE DO ATTEND THAT EVENT!! We do NOT want this Unity Walk presentation to distract from the normal World Tai Chi & Qigong Day celebration or attendence.


We only mention this hear, because it is an exciting synchronicity, and shows how Tai Chi & Qigong are permeating culture, and weaving into standard medical approaches and awareness on many levels.

We do hope that the World Tai Chi & Qigong Day event organizers in New York City, will make a statement acknowledging this exciting development at the Unity Walk, happening on the same day and time as their important New York and worldwide World Tai Chi & Qigong Day celebrations.


PLEASE Contact OPRAH's Producers !!




Please take a few moments to contact Oprah's producers to invite them to do a show on World Tai Chi & Qigong Day 2008 !!


WHY contact Oprah about World Tai Chi & Qigong Day?

As her book club pick, "A New Earth, Awakening to Your Life's Purpose" by Eckhart Tolle (on page 158 of his exciting new book) extols the virtues of Tai Chi and Qigong as playing an important role in the global awakening of humanity . . . we have all played an IMPORTANT part in this by connecting the global in the health & healing event of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day.

As you all know, World Tai Chi & Qigong Day, not only facilitates the global organizing of this event, BUT provides a FREE directory where teachers, schools, groups and organizations worldwide are listed for FREE. And viewers who come to WorldTaiChiDay.org are directed to contact information for such groups, teachers and schools in their areas.

Some of the major international organizations we've linked on our homepage include:

* The National Qigong Association

* The European Taji and Qigong Federation

* The Canadian TaijiQuan Federation

* The Tai Chi Union for Great Britain

And of course thousands of teachers and schools from around the world are listed for free in the Schools or Find Events Directory, spanning 6 continents and over 60 countries, and all US States.
