Falun Dafa (also called Falun Gong) is an ancient cultivation way for improving mind and body. The practice’s most visible aspects are its five gentle exercises, including a meditation. They are highly effective ways to improve health and energy. Falun Dafa practitioners also study spiritual teachings, taking them as a guide for daily life. At the core of these teachings are the values of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. Falun Dafa teaches that these are the fundamental qualities of the universe and that by assimilating into them, a person can improve both physical health and wisdom.

People from diverse nationalities and professions who have taken up this practice have found themselves undergoing profound transformations. Forgiveness replaces anger. Calm replaces anxiety. Frustration and greed give way to a serene inner joy that endures in even the most challenging situations.
