World Healing Day

World Healing Day

April 27 is World Healing Day.

World Healing Day has a background that can be traced back through a grassroots movement of people focused on the hope that comes through natural healing. The event that acted as a launch point for World Healing Day was World Tai Chi and Qigong Day, which has been held on the last Saturday of April since 1999, with official recognition from many state and national government entities. That day eventually evolved into what is now celebrated as World Healing Day.

Whether referring to individual health and wellness, the environment, or global peace movements, World Healing Day is here to focus on well-being. Folks who celebrate this day are often dedicated to various mind-body practices such as yoga, Reiki, art healing, Sufi dance, meditation, healing prayer and many others. The motto for the day is “One World…One Breath”.
