World Taiji and Qigong Day 2012   3 comments

This Saturday, April 28th, is World Taiji Day when we celebrate the birthday of Wudang Taoist monk Zhang Sanfeng.

I’ll be at Kamaole Beach #III at 9:30, look for me near the south end of the parking lot and we’ll find a shady place to do our thing.

Legend has it Zhang Sanfeng invented what is now known as Taiji and thereby achieved enlightenment. Every year practitioners the world over gather on this day and do qigong and Taiji at 10:0 am local time. The idea is, if we all do Taiji and qigong for an hour, then as the world turns, the next time zone will start as soon as we finish; creating a huge wave of Taiji around the planet!
Anyway, it should be fun, and a great excuse to get together and do Taiji.

  3. We has a wonderful time! There was about ten of us doing Qigong and Taiji and then we had a picnic at the park and had a fun time! Thank you everyone for making our Taiji community a family style group!
