World Tai Chi & Qigong Day
April 29, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Free Tai Chi and Qigong session and demonstrations.
Every year on the last Saturday of April at 10 am local time in 100s of cities, spanning 80 nations, tens of thousands of people around the world come together, to breathe together, and share a common vision of hope & healing for the planet and all those who dwell upon it.
We celebrate the day for the health & healing benefits that Tai Chi & Qigong provides for individuals, communities, and nations. We bring people across racial, economic, religious, and geo-political boundaries together for the purpose of health and healing, and we thank Chinese culture for creating and sharing these valuable gifts with us.
Events have been held at the United Nations Building and the Nobel Peace Centre. The day has been officially proclaimed by 22 US Governors, Senates of Puerto Rico, California, New York, and the Brazilian National Congress, consulates and embassies from Italy to the U.S.A, China to India, and by government ministries and bodies in countries worldwide.
This year we will be celebrating World Tai Chi & Qigong Day in the heart of the city (Revitalise Newcastle; Market Street Lawn), where Newcastle will take its place on the regional, national and international stage and share its unique energy with the world.
