Denmark: Happy Encounter with Falun Gong at Health Expo
(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners participated at the annual Odense Health Expo at the city convention center on February 17-18, 2018. This was the first time that many expo visitors had heard about Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa) and why it has been persecuted in China since 1999. One participant who learned the Falun Gong exercises felt energy circulating in his body. He said he was so comfortable that he didn’t want to leave.
Mr. Flemming Andersen first learned Falun Gong last November at another expo and subsequently read the online Falun Gong books. He came to this health expo wanting to do the exercises with the practitioners again.
In the process Anderson said, “I felt endless energy circulating inside and around my body. It felt very warm and comfortable.” He didn’t want to leave the booth after spending over an hour there, when his friends were rushing him. He gave the practitioners a thumbs-up before leaving.
Ms. Barbara Pedersen came to the Falun Gong booth with a walking assistance device. She had health issues in recent years and was under a lot of stress. She came to the health expo in search of a solution. After she learned about the principles of Falun Dafa, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and its physical and mental benefits, she was very interested and made arrangements with the practitioners to learn the exercises.
Mr. Jørgen Magnussen has never left Denmark but was fascinated with China and its culture. He’s read many books and seen videos about China. He was very fond of the practice and bought two books to take home and read carefully, so he could better understand the teachings.
One young woman was very excited after the practitioners introduced the practice to her. She said the she felt something different the moment she decided to come to the expo. It occurred to her that somehow she was meant to learn Falun Dafa when a practitioner said to her, “It’s a predestined relationship that we met today.” She was determined to find out more about the practice.
