World Tai Chi & Qigong Day

Happy World Tai Chi & Qigong Day!

World Tai Chi & Qigong Day has been celebrated annually around the world on the last Saturday in April since 1999. The idea is for people everywhere to make their way to a public park at 10:00 am (local time) to do their Tai Chi or Qigong – either alone or with a class – so that a Tai Chi wave will sweep the planet over a 24-hour period.

Here in Nanaimo, 17 people turned out for my free lesson in Healing Sounds Qigong this morning at Maffeo Sutton Park. We visited all five organs (heart, spleen, lungs, kidneys, liver) with sound and visualization, and then concluded with the San Jiao (Triple Burner) to unify the energies we had awakened.

My next Healing Sounds Qigong course begins on Wednesday, May 9, in a wooded location in central Nanaimo. The class will run for 6 consecutive Wednesday mornings from 10-11 am. We will work on a different organ each week. And, as with all of my Pen & Dragon courses, guided creative writing exercises are also part of the package.

$95 for 6 weeks (or just $75 if you pay before May 1).
