Reviewing World Tai Chi Day Pittsburgh + 70 cities worldwide
The April 24th worldwide Tai Chi Day heralded many community-building events -- I want to give you a glimpse of both local and global examples from that day. I'm also dedicating my upcoming June 12th Venture Outdoors Mindful Walking with Qi Gong and Tai Ji event to the mission of WED World Environment Day and Water Matters Global Conference here in Pittsburgh on June 5th. Watch for more on WED in upcoming post
Here are 9 pages of CNN videos from around the world documenting WTCD events:

PURPOSES OF WORLD T'AI CHI & QIGONG DAY:
1) To educate the world of the profound health & healing benefits of Tai Chi & Qigong for individuals, communities, and nations
2) To thank Chinese culture for creating and sharing these profoundly valuable gifts with the world
3) To bring together people across racial, economic, religious, and geo-political boundaries, to join together for the purpose of health and healing, providing an example to the world.
4) To give a powerful example of how the power of the internet can be used to foster global health & healing.
I'm in awe of how well these intents were accomplished -- shared vision is powerful chi!
I'm happy to report, BodyArts Therapeutics hosted a very sweet WTCDay gathering in Pittsburgh -- and though the threatening rainy weather kept us from The Point, we were very aware of the blessings of our waters as we danced and played at another favorite natural setting - Boyd Community Center. We had a few magic moments -- starting off as we walked silently,mindfully up the path to the entrance and enjoyed the small grove of flowering trees that began showering us --welcoming us --- blessing us with sweet pink blossoms!!! Concluding our practice - we learned that two of the players had birthdays that week-end - so we ended singing happy birthday to each and every one of us - deeply celebrating the inner healer in harmony with the nature within and around us.

Namaste, I See You
