(Clearwisdom.net) On January 5, 2003, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Tucson invited local Falun Gong practitioners to conduct a seminar about Falun Gong. About twenty people came to attend the seminar. During the seminar, practitioners showed excerpts from the video programs "The Falun Gong Real Story" and "The Peaceful Journey", which introduced the rapid spread of Falun Gong and the current persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China.

Practitioners then used their own cultivation experiences to explain the amazing effects of Falun Gong in improving people's physical health. They also demonstrated the exercises and answered questions. The attendees followed the practitioners' movements to learn the exercises. Many asked for Falun Gong introductory materials including the magazine Witness of History, the newsletter Falun Dafa Reader, and the VCD The Real Story. The Falun Gong introductory book China Falun Gong was also popular. Most of the people had little or no knowledge about Falun Gong before the seminar, and were very moved by the information. Some even asked to start group practice at the Church.
