World Tai Chi & Qigong Day (Public Event) – Maffeo Sutton Park

April 27 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Mid Island Tai Chi Club is hosting World Tai Chi and Qigong Day (WTCQD) on Saturday, April 27, 2024, 9:30am to noon, at Maffeo Sutton Park in Nanaimo. This is a FREE event open to the public.

All Tai Chi and Qigong practitioners, regardless of differences in styles and methods of practice, are invited to gather together in solidarity, and to be a part of this global Tai Chi “wave” on WTCQD – a day where we celebrate that we are connected by, and all part of, the web of life: One World. One Breath.

Held in over 80 nations on the last Saturday of April each year, WTCQD begins with mass Tai Chi, Qi Gong, and Mind Body events in the earliest time zones of New Zealand, and then spreads as the world turns, 10am local time worldwide, ending with final events in Hawaii.

Our program plan is as follows:

Gather at Maffeo Sutton Park

Various outdoor demos and participation of Seated Tai Chi, Tai Chi/24 moves, Lok Hup Ba Fa, Qi Gong, Tai Chi Fan dance, Sword dance, and others (to be confirmed) – led by different clubs/individuals.
