Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa) 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 Gong 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 Gong 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.
