When we start learning Tai Chi and Qigong, often our intention is single pointed, stress management, health enhancement, etc., but as our practice evolves we realize that so much more awaits us on so many profound levels. So, it's not suprising that the same thing occurred with World Tai Chi & Qigong Day's evolution . . .
There was something extraordinarily moving about seeing the entire world . . . breathe together . . . on this special day each year . . .
Originally, the first World Tai Chi & Qigong Day event was created to educate the media and public about the vastly important emerging medical research on
Tai Chi and Qigong.
And this amazing event still does
educate millions worldwide . . .
But, as the event evolved and spread
around the planet, it also became a symbol
of the commonality and connection of humanity, as tens of thousands come together across racial, religious, ethnic, and geo-political boundaries for the sole purpose of advancing health and healing locally, and to be a part of the global vision . . .
"One World . . . One Breath . . ."
