      This Saturday (April 6) immediately following the United Nation's World
      Health Day, at 10 am beginning in the Earth's earliest time zone, a
      peaceful soothing event will unfold, and change the world forever, as it
      blooms around the Earth throughout the entire day -- time zone by time
      zone. Gently and effortlessly the world will breathe together in a Tai Chi
      & Qigong relay of calm. We have all experienced the soothing calm of
      witnessing others doing Tai Chi or Qigong and on this day the entire planet
      will have that opportunity. This will also be a unique chance for you to
      observe and experience the Tai Chi & Qigong movement.

      The World Tai Chi Qigong Day was initiated by Bill Douglas of Kansas in
      1999, and soon became a major worldwide health event. This year more than
      500 events will take place around the world on the same day. Tai Chi &
      Qigong are believed to boost human immune system, slow the aging process,
      lower blood pressure, and reduce the incidence of anxiety, depression, and
      overall mood disturbance. They are proven to be the most effective balance
      and coordination conditioner in the world.

      According to the organizer, the purposes of staging this historic event
      include: 1) To educate the world to the profound implications Tai Chi &
      Qigong can offer our personal, social and world health. 2) To thank
      Chinese culture for providing this powerful health science to the world.
      3) To improve world relations by joining Tai Chi & Qigong practitioners
      around the world on this World Tai Chi & Qigong Day, to promote and
      celebrate a healthier world. 4) To provide a mighty example of how the
      emerging power of the Internet can be used to promote world cooperation and
      health, since most of the organizing of this event is done via the Internet
      through web page http://www.worldtaichiday.org Tai Chi & Qigong is about
      personal empowerment and the internet is a powerful enabler.

      To celebrate this worldwide health event, a local non-profit organization,
      World Institute for Self Healing (WISH) at Middlesex, NJ, will offer a
      special free seminar "What is Qigong" on Saturday, April 6 (2:00 to 5:00pm)
      at WISH office (250 Lackland Dr of Middlesex). Dr. Kevin Chen, an
      assistant professor of psychiatry at UMDNJ, will give a special multi-media
      presentation on introduction to Qigong, including the basic concept, brief
      history, major traditions and medical applications of Qigong, the same
      lecture being offered only to UMDNJ students previously. WISH also teaches
      medical Qigong to the public, free of charge, every Sunday afternoon
      (2:00-5:00pm) in its Middlesex office. For more information about the free
      seminar and Qigong workshop, please contact WISH office by email at
