Falun Gong, also called Falun Dafa, is a powerful body and mind exercise system. It contains five sets of exercises that work on the energy circulation of the body. The movements are smooth and graciously flowing, and can be learned easily by any age group. The mind exercise is applying Zhen (truthfulness), Shan (compassion) and Ren (Forbearance) into daily life. This releases the stress and tension of physical and mental energy fields, making people more healthy and peaceful. Every Sunday; no charge for participation.
