What is World Healing Day?
World Healing Day, observed this year on April 29th, is a special holiday held to promote global harmony and healing- physically, spiritually, or mentally. Originally created as Tai Chi Day, World Healing Day is all about collectively being in tune with one another, displaying compassion and warmth to heal both personal and world issues.
People from all different parts of the world observe this special day in many different techniques, including performing healing rituals and meditations, volunteering for organizations, and simply having a happy time with loved ones. Some popular World Healing Day activities include practicing forms of martial arts such as Qigong and yoga, both which stem from areas in Asia. There is not a certain event in which individuals partake during World Healing Day, as everyone has different beliefs on the meaning of global unity and how to spend a day observing it.

Everybody have different stories and struggles, different memories and experiences, and this day allows society to recognize the importance of finding love for strangers and being happy.
