(Minghui.org) For the first time in a long time, a Falun Dafa presentation and exercise class was held in Venezuela.

A group of practitioners held the free workshop in Cagua, the capital of Aragua, on August 12. They briefly introduced the guiding principles of Falun Dafa and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, demonstrated the exercises, talked about the benefits they personally experienced from the practice, and informed the attendees about the persecution of the practice in China.

People from Maracay, Cagua, Turmero, Villa De Gura, Guárico, and Miranda attended the workshop.

Learning the exercises

The financial situation is very difficult for most people in Venezuela, and the public transportation system does not function well. Many people who wished to attend could not make it because of these obstacles.

Still, around 50 people made it to the workshop. At the end of the workshop, many of the participants said they felt inner peace while doing the exercises. They said that they will continue the practice at home and will share what they learned about Falun Dafa with their friends and families.

While some planned to attend the regular practice site in Valencia, many attendees said they hoped to start exercise sites in their areas, so that more people in Venezuela can have access to Falun Dafa.
