Florida: Local Residents Learn Falun Gong at Tampa Bay Veg Fest (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) The 1st Annual Tampa Bay Veg Fest was held at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park on the Hillsborough River in downtown Tampa on October 2nd. The organizer had learned about Falun Gong on Earth Day, so they invited the Falun Dafa Association to participate in this event.
The heat of summer gives way to cooler temperatures in Tampa in October. The mild weather attracted many residents of surrounding areas to the Veg Fest. Falun Dafa practitioners set up a booth with banners and printed materials.
Many vegetarians practice yoga, taichi or other qigong practices. They were interested in Falun Dafa's spiritual content. Joy immediately wanted to learn the exercises and asked for the local contact in her city.
Matthew, a golf trainer, has practiced Falun Gong for seven years. He and his family were very happy to see the practitioners at the Veg Fest. He asked the practitioners to correct his movements and also inquired about the current situation of the persecution in China.
Ms. Kline is a human resource director in a vocational school. She came to the Falun Gong booth and was attracted by the information presented to her. She invited the practitioners to join the career day event in her school and the practitioners happily accepted.
Many visitors were surprised that Falun Gong exercise teaching is absolutely free and asked where the materials on the table came from. The practitioners told them that they were contributed by practitioners who have practiced the exercises and benefited from it, so more people can benefit from the exercises and learn about the persecution of Falun Gong in China.
