(Clearwisdom.net) When Falun Gong practitioners introduced the practice at a health fair in Pyha-Koli, a teacher from Joensuu learned the exercises. She wanted to learn more about the persecution and about the practice of Falun Gong. A few months later she made a call and asked if we could come to Koli and introduce the practice to her students at the technical college in North-Karelia.

Students learn about Falun Gong

Before we began the class the students were told that everyone was free to attend. All the students joined and they showed such great interest that we had to prolong the time for thirty minutes.

At first the students learned the exercises for around thirty minutes and then we discussed the persecution and things related to the Falun Gong practice. Some students wanted to know more so we handed out small booklets about Falun Gong and also information about how to find Falun Gong websites.

During the conversation one of the teachers asked us if the practice had any affect on certain abilities or other artistic abilities and how to learn the five sets of movements. Falun Gong practitioners can been found among all the different classes and professions. Many painters, musicians and artists practise Falun Gong and everybody has benefited from it. You can practise alone or together in a group and you can learn the practice from a practitioner or from a videotape or download it from the internet. You can also attend a Falun Gong class in your area and it is always free.

Falun Gong is practised in over sixty countries, it transcends all cultural, social, religious or ethnic boundaries.
