Today's world situation, war on terrorism, economic downturn, and health care challenges require more than just a fresh approach. The time has never been better for monumental changes. The Seventh World Congress on Qigong in San Francisco is a perfect moment to expand our perspectives on health, life, disease and healing and celebrate with like-minded people!
This millennium must focus on healthy lifestyles and better affordable health care. Qigong along with Traditional Chinese Medicine can be a powerful means of achieving this goal. Together we can foster Qigong as a part of the world's life and health care system in which people are given the power to take control of their own health.
We look forward to seeing you at the Congress! Call/Email us with any questions.
