World Tai Chi and Qigong Day in Sisters

World Tai Chi and Qigong Day begins in Samoa and continues throughout the other time zones around the world for a 24-hour period.

Tai chi and qigong - forms of "energy work" - are considered by practitioners to help bring balance and calm to the world. There are celebrations in over 80 nations around the world.

This year in Sisters the occasion will be marked at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 29 at Creekside Park.

The purpose of the event is to educate people about tai chi and qigong and the health benefits they provide. The use of these ancient Chinese modalities promotes increased focus and concentration, balance (physical and energetic) and spiritual and community connection.
