Stories from a Nine Day Workshop in San Francisco: “I didn't know that Falun Gong is so awesome”
(Minghui.org) A nine-day Falun Gong free workshop was held at a practitioner's home in Fremont, California in early May of this year. Although the workshop was advertised for only two days, more than 20 people from the Bay Area attended.
Each evening from 7:30 to 10, attendees watched Master Li Hongzhi's lecture videos and learned the exercises from veteran practitioners.
All the new practitioners came every day. On the 4th day, one newcomer said, “I didn't know that Falun Gong was so awesome.”
Many people expressed that their attitude to life had changed as a result of attending the workshop.
Mr. Zhang said, “I didn't know much about Falun Gong. All I heard about it was Communist Party propaganda. At this workshop, I found that all the teachings of Falun Gong are good.” He thanked practitioners for holding the free workshop.
Mr. Li and his wife were thinking about learning Falun Gong on April 29. Surprisingly, Mr. Li saw the advertisement of the workshop on newspaper the same day. They were quite excited. He admires Falun Gong practitioners: “I have been concerned about the persecution from the very beginning. Falun Gong practitioners are great. They refuse to give in under the severe pressure.”
Ms. He and her husband started on the third day of the workshop. “I enjoy it a lot. Falun Gong teaches people to be good, or even better than average.” Since she missed the first two days, Ms. He attended the workshop in San Jose. She cried when talking about her experiences. “This is true cultivation. I will practice it,” she said.
Many attendees liked the workshop, so they brought their friends and family members. Since too many people wanted to come, and the space was limited, practitioners decided to hold another one in the near future.
In May, practitioners in many cities in the Bay area have held similar workshops. More and more people have learned the beauty of Falun Gong, and started benefiting from practicing it.
