Mr. Cav, who is a Tai chi teacher at VA Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System, also had a booth at the expo. He showed great interest in learning Falun Gong after talking with a practitioner and learned the exercises when things slowed down. He said he plans to join the group exercises in the future.

Andrea, a professor of Chemistry at Doane University, read the introduction on display boards, and listened to a practitioner’s introduction to Falun Gong practitioners’ peaceful resistance to the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) persecution. Andrea said she would like to invite practitioners to her dance class to give an introduction to the practice.

A woman named Leeper was excited to hear a practitioner’s introduction. The practitioner, with the surname of Wang, told Leeper his mother’s experience of recovering from tuberculosis from practicing Falun Gong, and the CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong in China. Leeper said she definitely would like to learn Falun Gong and plans to go to a group exercise site.

Another woman said she was happily surprised to see Falun Gong. She learned about the practice while attending a Shen Yun performance. She asked for information about the local group exercise and Fa study.

A man named Andrew who founded a company providing consulting services to retirees gave practitioners his business card. He said he would like to invite practitioners to teach the Falun Gong exercises to his clients.
