World Tai Chi & Qigong Day - April
Every year on the last
Saturday of April at 10 am (local time), practitioners of Taiji and Qigong all over the world practice
their forms to create a wave of mindful, relaxed energy that circumnavigates the earth promoting personal and global health
and healing. With so many people suffering from political conflict and personal difficulties of all kinds, and our natural
world showing distress in many ways, lets breath and move together for a positive and peaceful future.
Taiji and Qigong practitioners
from all over the Olympia area meet at 9:30 am at Heritage Park by Capitol Lake – look for the banner. It's
an amazing setting -- on the grass by the lake beneath the Capitol. People can practice whatever styles they desire, and folks from
various schools and classes can practice together as a group if they want. At 10 am, we begin practice and continue for about
a half hour to soft Chinese music. Supporters are also welcome to come and watch. Afterwards, folks may want to share their practices
and join in on the forms of others. We finish with a picnic (weather permitting)! Bring food to share and utensils, chairs,
blankets and whatever else you’d like for yourself.
If you teach or are part of a
school, feel free to bring a card table and materials to display about your classes. Last time we did this, we had someone
watch the tables and talk to passersby who had questions while we practiced. Any volunteers?
Hope to see you by the lake at 9:30 am to be ready to practice at 10 am!
