Project participants are studying the Falun Gong exercises

On October 2, 2008 Bulgarian Falun Dafa practitioners introduced Falun Gong to the group. After a short demonstration of the first video lecture by Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of the practice, a lively discussion was held as a result of the psychologists' desire to know about the practitioners' personal experiences regarding mental and physical health benefits. They were interested in how practitioners found out about Falun Dafa and why they started practicing, as well as why exactly this practice is persecuted in China. A Macedonian participant shared that she had read about Falun Gong, but in her country there aren't any practitioners yet.
