For nearly two decades, a quiet subtle phenomenon has grown across the planet. Each year, on the "last Saturday of April," in 100s of cities in over 80 nations, spanning 6 continents... World Tai Chi & Qigong Day events have been held around the planet all on the same day.
The event's motto is "One World... One Breath," and in recent years Tai Chi champion, David Dorian Ross (of PBS. tai chi specials fame), and Bill Douglas, Founder of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day (author of a best-selling tai chi book, "The Complete Idiot's Guide to T'ai Chi & Qigong," have teamed up to livestream this global phenomenon as it unfolds across the planet... dubbing this livestream project as "24 Hours of World Peace."
This event has been officially recognized by over 22 US States' governors; by senates and legislatures, including: the states of New York and California, and the National Congress of Brazil. The event has been noted as part of the United Nation's Movement for Health celebration, and World Tai Chi & Qigong Day events have been supported by officials and embassies in many nations, including the Italian Embassy in China; the Chinese and Indian Embassies in Egypt; the US Consulate office in Hong Kong, etc.
It has been supported by national health and sports ministries in several nations.
The event is open to everyone to participate, and involves free Tai Chi and Qigong mass exhibitions and teach-ins that are spectacularly beautiful.
The event's goal is to educate the planet on the benefits of mind-body practices, and through the event's unfolding, provide an example of how the world can come together across racial, ethnic, religious, and geo-political borders to focus on personal and global health and healing.
