I just love to connect with Taijiquan & Qi Gong enthusiasts all around the world. That’s actually the reason why I write my blog in English even though my mothertongue is German. And I have to admit that I have never been to a conference or big push hands meeting, but I would really like to go to such an event. And there are so many Qi Gong & Tai Chi Events 2020!
I am sure you can find many more events, meetings, workshops etc. But I wanted to concentrate on the BIG international meetings and conferences. So my criteria to choose the Qi Gong & Tai Chi events 2018 on my list are:
- Minimum 3 days long
- Minimum 3 different teachers
- Possibility to participate in English or have translations to English (especially when the event is in a non-English-speaking country)
Just choose an event you would like to go to – there are so many possibilities and locations. I am sure you’ll find one of these big international Qi Gong & Tai Chi events 2020 right for you! You could even plan your vacation around such an event, they happen in really great places.
And if you know about other events that match my criteria, feel free to write me an eMail!
