I love the idea of spreading positive Qi (energy) around the globe. We all can use some of that.
For several years, on the last Saturday in April, thousands of people gather across the world to participate in World Tai Chi and QiGong Day. 10 a.m on Saturday in each person’s time zone, groups of Tai Chi friends gather to breathe, move positive energy in concert with many others doing the same thing.
This year I had a special experience on that day, April 29, in northern Minnesota. I was part of a Wudang Tai Chi for Health and Longevity Retreat, led by Shifu Zhong Xuechao (Master Bing) from the Wudang Mountains in central China. At 9:45 a.m. we paused our class to go outside (a little chilly, but beautiful blue sky) to be on grass among beautiful trees and a still lake. We acknowledged we were part of a much larger energy movement as we slowly moved together with grace and ease, joining others whom we did not know, but felt akin to, to spread our good energy.
I asked my students in Chicago, to stop at 10 a.m. that day to breathe, do some Tai Chi moves and send some of their good energy to me across the miles. They did! It was a nice feeling of closeness, of knowing we were all doing something positive for ourselves and for people in far away countries.
