Dr Lam and tai chi friends at the Longmen Grottoes, China on the World Tai Chi Qigong Day 2015

Join Us at the World Tai Chi Qigong Day!

Twenty years ago the thought of reaching out to more tai chi enthusiasts moved me to start the first tai chi workshop in Sydney. Forty-four people came from all over Australia. We have a unbelievable time sharing tai chi, and that was the first of 33 annual workshops (including those in the USA).

During that first workshop, the spirit of excitement was so high that we founded the Tai Chi Association of Australia and I served as the Founding President for the first three years

Over the years I have had great pleasure in working with Bill Douglas, the founder of World Tai Chi and Qigong Day (WTCQD). We share the same dream of sharing and spreading tai chi to the world. The WTCQD is one of the most amazing phenomena in the world! Starting in Samoa and New Zealand, it goes around the world like a wave of tai chi, gathering and delivering energy. On that day the world pulsates with tai chi energy, experiencing more harmony. Bravo Bill and everyone who supports this special day!

TCAA participates in WTCQD thorough Australia every year, and since I travel so much, I often find myself joining friends on this very special day. Last year I conducted a workshop and tour with a group of tai chi friends and colleagues in China. At the famous Longmen Grottoes (photo attached), in front of thousands of tourists we shared tai chi there.

In Sydney we will be playing tai chi at Victoria Park, for more information please visit Tai Chi Association of Australia.

This year, I am going to offer a special gift to celebrate this special, with a special discount for all instructional DVDs I have produced on that day. Please visit Tai Chi for Health Institute and subscribe my newsletter. On 29th April I will publish a special code for the special WTCQD discount.
