AL DUERR (Mayor)
Falun Dafa is a practice involving five sets of gentle exercises and the study of truthfulness, compassion and tolerance. It was introduced to Calgary in May 1999 and is gaining worldwide understanding and appreciation.
Falun Dafa is an advanced traditional Qigong practice for improving the mind and body through gentle exercise and mediation. The practice has a significant effect on stress relief and overall mental and physical health. It is a virtuous system of body, mind and spirit emphasizing truthfulness, compassion and forbearance.
More than 100 million people are practicing Falun Dafa in more than 40 countries. The practice has helped many people turn away from bad habits and pursue more meaningful lives.
I am pleased to recognize October 29, 2000 as Falun Dafa Day, and I acknowledge the important role the practice has in the mental and physical health of people who use it.
