Despite Tai Chi being based on traditional Chinese medicine the first event was held in Kansas City Missouri USA in 1999. The event has expanded every year since. Since it occurs at local time, New Zealand is the first country to celebrate the event each year.
The event motto is “One World One Breath”. It is a wonderful example of how one purpose & event can bring people together across religious, racial, political & economical boundaries for the purpose of health & healing.
If we can get together for one hour on one day a year to promote health through Tai Chi imagine what we could do if we got together one full day every year to discuss other pressing issues!?
