Spain: Falun Gong Booth Shines at Madrid Health Expo (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On November 13, the annual National Health Exposition was held in the Madrid convention center. Falun Gong practitioners hosted an information booth for the ninth year. Their booth was one of the most visited, and the practitioners met many people who were interested in learning about the practice.

A middle-aged man from a Madrid suburb said that he had practiced Tai Chi for many years but that he was looking for spiritual practice. He said that he was very pleased to find Falun Gong and his intuition told him that Falun Gong was very precious. He promised that he would share what he had learned from the practitioners with his group and encourage all of them to learn about the practice.
A lady in her 70s from another city invited practitioners to teach the Falun Gong exercises at a cultural center in her city.
While the practitioners were demonstrating the exercises, a toddler appeared. He studied one of the practitioners and carefully copied every movement. The practitioner asked him, “Do you want to learn?” The boy nodded with excitement, and the practitioner started to teach him. The boy’s mother later told the practitioner that both she and her husband loved qigong, but she was surprised to see her son take so quickly to a qigong exercise for the very first time. The couple asked what Falun Gong was and the location of the practice site. They said that they would come learn the exercises with their son.
There was a gentleman who had actually learned the Falun Gong exercises two years before at this very expo. While he knew the practice was good, but he could not continue as he was busy with other things. At the booth, he told the practitioners that, this time, he would start to practice Falun Gong again.
Opposite the Falun Gong booth was a different qigong group. Volunteers from that booth told practitioners that they felt a strong energy field from the Falun Gong booth, especially when the practitioners were demonstrating the exercises. Some of them came over to learn about Falun Gong, and a few also signed a petition to express their support. In addition, several people from this booth bought copies of Zhuan Falun.
During the expo, the practitioners also gave a Falun Gong Introduction workshop, at which a practitioner introduced the principles of the practice and taught the exercises. Many attendees were deeply impressed by the exercises’ serenity and powerful energy field. After the workshop, many people signed up to attend a nine-day lecture class.
