Governor of the Federal District, Brasília (Brazil)
Proclaims World Tai Chi & Qigong

Dear Bill Douglas & World Tai Chi & Chi Kung Day,

" Since 1974 there happens in Brasília a daily practise of Tai Chi & Chi Kung and Being Tao, in an area called Square of the Universal Harmony. This gave origin, in a few time, in the foundation of the Cultural Association Brazil-China. The institution of the World Tai Chi Day, that the community is celebrating annually from 2002, represents the world-wide effort in favour of Health and Peace. This was very helpfull in recognizing the benefits of these chinese arts, which resulted in the officialization of this cultural manifestation by the local government ."


Warm regards,

Milton
