A waist drum performance followed the exercise demonstration.

Liu Jiayu, Recreational General Manager of Zhongpu, had previously heard about the peaceful meditation practice. “Falun Dafa finally arrives here,” she said with excitement.

“This is extraordinary,” remarked Huang Jiaxiang, president of the recreational department. He said the practitioners' participation made this event special, “It looks great and the positive energy is impressive.”

In addition to Chiayi, some practitioners from nearby Yulin also attended the activity. One practitioner said the practice not only improved her physical health, but also taught her to be more considerate. A teacher said the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance helped her at work as well as in her family life.

“I am sure more people have a better understanding of Falun Dafa today,” said Liu, remarking that some of them may soon become practitioners themselves.
