Pay it Forward: Establish a Community Practice Group

A huge part of the HWF mission, "Healer Within Foundation advances community-based Qigong/Tai Chi and other self-healing, body-mind-spirit practices through collaborations with individuals and organizations, to sponsor trainings, community practice groups and research" and organizational vision of, "A world of self-healing, wellness and vitality", is centered around the Tai Chi Easy™ Dissemination Project.

This project trains Practice Leaders to introduce the Tai Chi Easy™ form and teaching methods created by Roger Jahnke, O.M.D. in communities throughout the world. We train thousands (Tai Chi Easy™ Practice Leaders) to improve the health of millions (everyone those Practice Leaders share Tai Chi Easy™ with). One way we'll reach millions is through the creation of new Community Practice Groups.

Perhaps you have thought about organizing a Community Practice Group in your area, but don't know where to begin. How do you secure a space, reach potential sponsors or grow your attendance? Some great information on these topics can be found in the article, How to Market Tai Chi Easy™ written by Practice Leader and IIQTC Certified Teacher, Tom Wittenberg. This article was originally shared at the July, 2017 5th Saturday Gathering on the Cloud meeting.

Community Practice Groups are vital to the Dissemination Project and to HWF infrastructure and sustainability. Groups like the one in Santa Barbara, California offer low-cost ($5 per attendee) weekly practice and donate their proceeds back to the Foundation. These contributions help us to grow our network of Community Practice Groups; Increase the number of Tai Chi Easy™ Practice Leader Certification training events and advance the practice of Tai Chi, Qigong and other self-care practices around the world!
