Summer is the season of longer days of sunlight and abundant of life-force energy (Qi). In Chinese Medicine, Summer is the most YANG or ACTIVE aspect of Nature - where plant life grows, flourishes and bears fruit. 

Take advantage of Nature's Summer Qi Power to support you! 

In the Northern Hemisphere, we experience Summer Solstice -- the longest day of light, on June 21st. 

You may like to do a Qigong Solstice Day Ritual 

  1. Stand barefoot on the earth or your patio and out stretch your arms to the sky. 
  2. Now imagine, or feel if you can, pulling in the sunlight — super Yang Qi -- while tracing your hands down over your head, your heart and your entire body down to legs to your feet — infusing your organs and energy centers with fresh Qi of nature. 
  3. Fill, bask and bath yourself in Light Qi! Take in and release huge deep breaths. 
  4. Repeat this 2 or more times. 
  5. Now the most important part — notice with great focus — what are you feeling?
  6. Linger, celebrate!

Now, Looking at your Circle of Life
What area of your life would benefit from more Light and Energy? 
What would support you to THRIVE -- rather than just survive? 
What is one action step you're willing to commit to that would expand your Joy, Life Fulfillment or Well-Being? 
Best to schedule your ONE action step --Right NOW!

Choose Foods to Clear the Heat

Summer is the perfect time for cooling Yin foods. Chinese Medicine classifies food according to energetic qualities of temperature, taste, and the ability to strengthen the body. Food with cool/cold properties can clear heat, reduce toxins, and generate body fluids. Fish and seafood are cooling, while red meat and chicken are warming.
Select fresh fruits and vegetables from your local farmers market or your backyard garden, such as watermelon, peaches, cantaloupes, radishes, lettuce, kale, celery, tomatoes and spinach. Avoid spicy foods, alcohol, or caffeine as they are heating to the system. Drink plenty of cooling fluids, especially hydrating drinks such as coconut water or water with lemon or cucumber slices added. Watermelon is also very hydrating and cooling.

World Tai Chi Qigong Day 2017

Hello my friends and fellow practitioners. I hope all is well with you and your families. 

Professor Bill Parkinson and I would like to invite you and your students to our annual World T'ai Chi and Qigong Day Celebration on Saturday, April 29 2016, outdoors at the Marriott Library Plaza on the University of Utah Campus. This is our 17th year celebrating on the campus! 

Naturally, this event is a great opportunity for you to attract new students. To help you achieve that, we invite each of you to prepare short presentations which showcase your school's unique offerings. Of course, individual demonstrations are not mandatory and we would love to see you there, if nothing else. This event is a tremendous opportunity to meet and socialize (push hands) with fellow practitioners and perhaps pick up new techniques and ideas to expand your personal knowledge of the arts of T'ai Chi and Qigong. You are also welcome to distribute flyers or other materials, just don'tleave a mess on the campus in doing so. 

For those not familiar with this annual event, World T'ai Chi & QiGong day was started in 1998 by Kansas City instructor Bill Douglas (author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to T'ai Chi and Qigong"), with the purpose of educating the world to the profound implications T'aiChi & QiGong can offer our personal, social, and world health. This celebration is held on the last Saturday in April each year, falling at the end of the same month as United Nations World Health day and Earth day. It features T'ai Chi & QiGong groups around the worldgathering at 10 am (each city's local time) to exhibit T'aiChi & QiGong to the public at mass gatherings in public parks or the lawns of public buildings, so as to be visible to the community and media.

We will gather at the Marriott Library plaza beginning at 9 a.m., settle in, and walk through some Qi building warm-ups, then perform our mass demonstration of T'ai Chi at 10 a.m. After the mass demonstration, we'll begin our program of individual school demonstrations. As always, if you're interested in performing a demonstration, either let me or Bill know prior to the event or on the morning of the event. Don't be shy, the gathered students LOVE to see this stuff. 

Campus visitor parking is free on Saturdays with nearby parking usually available below the plaza in the Bookstore lot and above it at the Student Union building.

If you know of a T'ai Chi instructor or group that was not included on this list, please let them know that they, too, are welcome and please pass this message along to them. If you have received this message in error, or prefer that I not contact you regarding our celebration of WTCQD in Utah, please let me know.

I've attached a flyer for this year's event. If you could print it an hang it in your space and/or distribute it, we would appreciate it. 

Kind regards,

JC Carter
