Did You Know Earth's Less Violent than Ever Before in History? Why? World Tai Chi & Qigong Day
On the last Saturday of April each year, people in 100s of cities in over 80 nations come together to share health and healing, to breathe together, as part of a global wave of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day events. This unprecedented global phenomenon has been officially proclaimed by 22 US Governors, Senates such as California, New York, and Puerto Rico, by the National Congress of Brazil, and by mayors, officials, ministries, and national sports and recreation programs worldwide.
The provocative headline of this release explains that Earth is less violent than ever before, and suggests that World Tai Chi & Qigong Day is "part of" the reason. Science is proving mind-body practices can reduce fear, anxiety, stress, bullying in schools, reduce prison recidivism rates, improve mental acuity, make people more open minded and tolerant, creative, and much more ... by physically changing the neurology and brain's structure in people who practice meditative techniques.
Emerging medical research shows that these practices could save trillions in future preventative health costs, if taught widely throughout society, and that is part of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day's mission, to educate on these scientific facts. But, also there is a human poetry to seeing the world "play together" in this way that only World Tai Chi & Qigong Day offers the planet, in this spectacularly visual way, each year on the last Saturday of April (See Chase Calendar of Events).
World Tai Chi & Qigong Day's global health education efforts, via this spectacularly visual global wave of mass Tai Chi and Qigong exhibitions and teach-ins has educated millions worldwide about mind-body practices ... but perhaps this visual event itself, helps to calm the world.
Something magical happens when you see World Tai Chi & Qigong Day unfold across the planet ... you don't see violence and conflict and fear ... you get a respite from the constant media barrage of fear/conflict ... and you see REALITY.
When you see human beings of all races, religions, and across all geopolitical boundaries coming together to play the mind-body health practices of Tai Chi and Qigong, you see people just like yourself, people who love their children, shop in markets, worry about day-care and jobs, and seek a way to manage mounting stress in their lives ... learning Tai Chi and Qigong as one human family ... and it is a moving a beautiful site.
Research has shown that even when you "watch" someone do Tai Chi, it triggers relaxation responses in you. On Saturday, media can play a healing role in our world, simply by covering any of the 100s of events in 80 nations worldwide.

The motto of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day is "One World ... One Breath."
