Why support our efforts at WorldTaiChiDay.org?

20 years ago we founded a global health education event that has since exposed over ONE BILLION potential media viewers to the Internal Arts of Tai Chi and Qigong, and their myriad health benefits, and the science that proves it.

We have connected over one-million web visitors to Tai Chi and Qigong teachers, schools, and organizations.

We have worked with the National YMCA and National Council on Aging to help them work with local teachers to expand public awareness and access to Tai Chi & Qigong.

We have trained Tai Chi & Qigong teachers worldwide in organizing and media outreach, and provided those teachers with archived and cutting-edge scientific research on Tai Chi and Qigong showing it can: Increase Brain Size and Immune Function; provide effective Cardio-Benefit and Ease Chronic Pain; Treat Heart Disease; Fibromyalgia; ADD/ADHD; Hypertension; Diabetes; etc. etc.

See our FREE Medical Research Library where we collect breaking science on Tai Chi and Qigong, to empower Tai Chi and Qigong enthusiasts worldwide to be up to date, and to be effective ambassadors in their locale to expand awareness of TC & QG.

These are just a few of the FREE resources we have provided the global Tai Chi & Qigong community … and we depend on your support via the Official T-Shirts .





View and feel free to utilize the myriad FREE resources we offer below.

There are many World Tai Chi Day T-Shirts out there for sale these days, but ONLY the OFFICIAL WTCQD T-Shirt supports our global health & healing organizing efforts.
We have exposed over ONE BILLION potential readers/viewers to Tai Chi and Qigong science, via media coverage of our global events.

Your organizing WTCQD events , getting media coverage of your events, and getting Official Proclamations of your WTCQD events is changing the world.

But together, we have also done something else that is equally wondrous ... in the holiday tradition we extol "peace and goodwill towards men/women" ...

Looking back over these 20 years of organizing World Tai Chi & Qigong Day, it is really no surprise to us that Tai Chi was what brought the world together in this extraordinary way. Why? Tai Chi (and Qigong) take us out of the linear divided way of viewing ourselves. As we play at our Tai Chi we "dissolve the separation" between different parts of our body. Our movements become "one flowing whole" and we relax and flow as one flowing whole rather than different rigid isolated parts.

Science is showing that this is not just physical/personal, it ripples out into how we see, and deal with the world. Mind Body practices, according to science, actually lessens the "isolation" experience in the brain, and expands the sense of "connectedness" with the world around us.

World Tai Chi & Qigong Day and the Internal Arts of Tai Chi and Qigong were harbingers of "what is possible" for our world. On the last Saturday of April, for 20 years, we have connected Earth's children from Israel to Iran, from Moscow to Washington DC, and 80 nations throughout the world ... coming together for personal and global health & healing.

One World ... One Breath



One World ... One Breath
An "Opening Statement" from WTCQD Founders that is often read to open World Tai Chi & Qigong Day events around the world each year.
See below "Opening Statement" in many languages ...





OPENING STATEMENT -- ENGLISH VERSION

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 immersing 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

Estimados participantes y patrocinadores de la celebración del Día Mundial del Tai Chi y Qi Gong:

Esta onda global de buena voluntad proporciona una visión de esperanza y curación a un mundo hambriento de tales visiones. Cada año al ver las fotos de personas de diversas culturas, religiones, y de cada confín de la tierra... respirando juntos... en este movimiento global de Tai Chi y de Chi Kung... es profundamente inspirador.

Cuando usted mira las fotografías y los videos usted ve la "mirada" en las caras de las personas, una mirada que sintetiza una sensación que todos nosotros los que hemos tenido esa experiencia del bienestar que se adquiere a través del manejo del Qi, o energía de la vida, que se expande a través de nuestra mente y cuerpo cuando nos tomamos el tiempo para respirar. . . y calmarnos, y dejar que la salud se amplíe en nosotros.

Cuando usted ve esa mirada especial en todas estas caras diversas, de tantas y diversas tierras, usted no puede dejar de realizar profundamente que somos de hecho "un solo mundo... y... un solo aliento."

Todos estamos conectados por el campo de la energía de la vida que los físicos ahora están descubriendo y que, de hecho, impregna toda la existencia.

Al sumergirnos en el campo de la energía de la vida repetidas veces, nos convencemos más y más de la absoluta realidad... de que todos estamos conectados... de que todos somos parte del enrejado de la vida. Y, cultivando y creciendo lo realizado tanto personal como globalmente, podemos ayudar de una manera sutil y reservada a llevar a un futuro que nos consolide a todos de maneras que no podemos todavía incluso imaginarnos.

Una vez más gracias por hacer este acontecimiento y movimiento extraordinarios de la salud directo posible a través de su participación activa.

Sinceramente,

Bill Douglas & Angela Wong Douglas, Co-Fundadores del Día Mundial del Tai Chi y Qi Gong.

OPENING STATEMENT IN "PORTUGUESE"

"MENSAGEM DA ORGANIZAÇÃO INTERNACIONAL DO DIA MUNDIAL DO TAI CHI & CHI KUNG PARA CADA UM DE VOCÊS E PARA TODOS AQUELES QUE, NAS DIFERENTES CIDADES DESTE PLANETA, HOJE SE REÚNEM PARA UMA CELEBRAÇÃO MUNDIAL:  

Esta onda global de boa vontade e otimismo induz a uma visão de esperança, bem-estar e paz para um mundo carente desses valores. A cada ano paramos um pouquinho para olhar as imagens dos povos das mais diferentes religiões e culturas, que se encontram nos mais diversos cantos da terra ... respirando juntos ... num movimento universal de energia do Tai Chi & Chi Kung ... isso tem um profundo significado de Unidade.    

Quando você olha as fotos e os vídeos, vê estampado nas faces das pessoas um sorriso interior e um brilho no olhar que transmite o sentimento daquilo que todos nós experimentamos: o sabor do Chi, o bem-estar que essa energia vital proporciona ao se expandir pelas nossas mentes e corpos quando nos dispomos a simplesmente respirar ... e nos entregamos à quietude e à calma, e toda vitalidade se expande a partir do nosso interior.  

Quando você observa olhares tão diferentes, em rostos tão diferentes, de terras tão diferentes, comungando um êxtase de tranqüilidade e harmonia, saiba que você pode concretamente realizar o que todos com certeza sonhamos: "um mundo ... uma respiração".  

Estamos todos conectados, interligados por uma incomensurável onda energética, um campo de energia da vida que a física quântica agora confirma que permeia toda a existência. Emergindo seguidamente nesse campo vibracional da energia vital, nos tornamos mais e mais convictos dessa realidade absoluta ... nós todos somos ligados ... como elos de uma corrente ou como todas as partes da cadeia receptora da vida. E cultivando as sementes da nossa realização pessoal, ajudamos também num crescimento global, de uma forma equilibrada, participando da construção de um futuro mais alegre e saudável que nos nutrirá a todos de uma maneira que jamais, ainda, podemos imaginar. "

OPENING STATEMENT IN "ITALIAN"

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

OPENING STATEMENT IN "FRENCH"

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.

OPENING STATEMENT IN "DUTCH"

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

OPENING STATEMENT IN "CROATIAN"

Postovani organizatori, i sudionici World TaChi & Qigong Day Svjetskog TaiChi i Qigong Dana, 

Ovaj Globalni Val dobre volje daje viziju nade i lijecenja svijetu koji je gladan takvih vizija, kome su takve vizije prijeko potrebne. Svake godine gledajuci fotografije ljudi iz raznih kultura, religija, iz svakog kutka planete Zemlje ... disuci zajedno ... u ovom globalnom TaiChi i qigong pokretu ... osjecamo dubinu, ljubav i iskrenost.

Kada pogledavate fotografije i video zapise vidite onaj "pogled" na ljudskim licima , koji izrazava i prenosi osjecaj koji svima nama koji smo osjetili blagostanje koje Qi, ili Zivotna energija , prenosi kroz nas um i tijelo kada si dopustimo da slobodno disemo ... i na taj nacin napravimo i dopustimo smirenosti i zadovoljstvu da se rasiri kroz cijelo nase bice. 
Kada vidite taj pogled na svim tim razlicitim licima , iz toliko puno zemalja, ne mozete si pomoci a da ne shvatite da smo svi ustvari "jedan svijet ... i, ... jedan dah." 

Svi smo povezani poljem zivotne energije za koji fizicari sada otkrivaju da ispunjava cijelo postojanje.

Uronivsi u polje zivotne energije sve vise i vise , postajemo sve vise i vise uzemljeni u apsolutnu stvarnost toga da ... smo svi povezani ...da smo svi dijelovi mreze zivota. 
I skupljanjem i rastom te realizacije osobno i globalno , mi mozemo pomoci na fin i tihi nacin da se uvedemo u elegantniju buducnost koja hrani i ispunjava sve nas na nacine koje sada ne mozemo jos niti zamisliti.

Ponovno vam svima hvala u organiziranju ovog izvanrednog dogadaja i zdravstvenog pokreta koji je postao moguc kroz Vasu organizaciju i sudjelovanje svake godine.

Iskreno Vasi,

Bill Douglas & Angela Wong Douglas, Su-Osnivaci World Tai Chi & Qigong Day

TIPS on how to generate more interest in YOUR community for Tai Chi and Qigong!

One thing we do in our newsletters, is we report on breaking medical research on Tai Chi and Qigong. Why do we do that? To educate you?

Yes, BUT, we also do this so that you can pass it along to the public in your city, area, or nation.

Most of the public and even doctors are ignorant of much of this research.
TIPS ON GROWING LOCAL CLASSES:
* Social Media: Start "Atlanta Tai Chi" Facebook, Twitter, etc. pages if you live/teach in Atlanta, Georgia, for example
* Have you started a "El Paso Tai Chi Meetup" on Meetup.com yet, if you live/teach in El Paso?
* Do you do free public presentations at local libraries, book stores, health food stores, etc.? When you do them pass around a clip board AND COLLECT EMAIL ADDRESSES
* THEN DO YOU do email reminders to your email list in days leading up to your new starting class session as they approach? Do you schedule Meetups for your first day class of a new session?
* Do you use WorldTaiChiDay.org's MEDICAL RESEARCH LIBRARY to find Tai Chi and Qigong Medical Research to share in your presentations?
* Do you do regular Tai Chi and Qigong newsletters to send out to your growing Tai Chi and Qigong email list? Do you forward our weekly Ezine to your local group, to get them excited about being part of your local WTCQD events?
* Did you know that you can do advertising for local classes on Facebook , etc., and control how many miles from your classes that the ads will go out to, and what interests people in your area have on their Facebook page, so they might show interest in your Tai Chi and Qigong classes?
* Do you approach Tai Chi and Qigong as a relaxing stress management fun experience? People's lives are SO SERIOUS these days ... if Tai Chi and Qigong can be a fun playtime to relax and breathe and flow ... it can boost your ongoing attendance. Scientific research shows that STRESS is the #1 issue people are dealing with in the modern world ... if your classes can help people unload stress and have fun, it'll help with Tai Chi and Qigong class attendance and student retention.

READER REVIEW OF "HOW TO BE A SUCCESSFUL TAI CHI TEACHER":
"Your e-book on  How to be a Successful Tai Chi Teacher  has been the main reason for my success . I am looking forward to the next few months where I will be expanding more into the community and offering Tai Chi, Qigong and Yi Quan to more and more people.
