Introducing Falun Gong at Woodstock Festival Poland
(Minghui.org) Practitioners in Poland introduced the traditional spiritual discipline of Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa) during Woodstock Festival Poland, the largest outdoor music festival in Europe. The festival attracts hundreds of thousands of people each year. This was the second year that Falun Gong practitioners took part in the festival, having first had a booth there in 2016.
On August 3-5, 2017, practitioners from Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and the U.K. visited Kustrin, where the festival is held, to introduce Falun Gong. Young people from all around the world became interested and learned the exercises.
Many people learned all five exercise sets. Word spread, and friends and family members also stopped by the booth to learn Falun Gong. Some people came to learn for all three days of the festival. Many left their contact information and wanted to buy a copy of Zhuan Falun.
Everyone who visited the Falun Gong booth found the Chinese Communist Party's persecution of Falun Gong to be disturbing and unacceptable. They lined up to sign a petition calling for an end to the atrocities.
Many people felt great benefits from learning the Falun Gong exercises.
Dominika from Rzeszów, Poland, said, “The Falun Gong exercises gave me a positive experience. I can feel a strong, but peaceful energy.”
Wojtek from Biłgoraj, Poland, said, “Doing the exercises made me feel comfortable, and it was very gratifying. Its beneficial effect is so obvious! Falun Gong is great!”
Arkadiusz from Stargard, Poland, joined others to learn Falun Gong. After doing the first four exercises to the exercise music, he said, “It's a wonderful exercise! My body, my breath, and my spirit melted into one. I will definitely continue doing this!”
Young people from cities and towns throughout Poland left their contact information, hoping to learn Falun Gong. Those from other European countries also took introductory materials and said they planned to learn more online.
