(Minghui.org) The 57th Nine-day Falun Dafa Workshop successfully concluded on June 5, 2019, at the Tianti Bookstore in Seoul. At the end of the workshop, which is held every month in the bookstore, participants shared their experiences.
Almost all of the new Falun Dafa practitioners experienced varying degrees of improvement in their health. They credited this to the Falun Dafa teachings and exercises.
Nan Qishan, a naturopathic doctor, started to practice Falun Dafa after witnessing dramatic changes in her husband. He used to be hot-tempered. Last month he attended a nine-day workshop and three days into it he could control his temper. “He used to be a heavy drinker,” his wife related, “but after the workshop, he refused to take a drink. He also changed his diet and had little interest in meat.”
Nan Qishan did the exercises every day with her husband at the local practice site. The first thing she noticed was that she had little desire for carbohydrates. This was important, as she is a diabetic. During this month's nine-day workshop, Nan Qishan experienced severe stomach upset and diarrhea. But she wasn’t in pain as she'd been in the past and realized that her body was undergoing cleansing.
Being a doctor of naturopathy, she’d done a lot of research into alternative healing methods, but she had never come across anything with the healing powers of Falun Dafa. “I feel so fortunate and grateful to have found such a good practice,” she said. “It makes me feel as if I've been reborn. And the unsettling feeling about the unknown future is gone.”
Nan Qishan couldn’t wait to tell her friends, who also practice naturophathy, about Falun Dafa.
Cheng Wanji, in his 60s, used to suffer from a severe lower back injury. He was paralyzed for a while, but he improved after being hospitalized. However, his muscles were stiff, and the doctors couldn’t do anything about that. He remembered that someone had once talked to him about the cultivation practice of Falun Dafa and he found the workshop online.
“Three days into the workshop,” Mr. Cheng said, “it felt as if a fire was burning in my toes when I did the exercises. The energy was so powerful that I was shocked. Then, my palms and feet were unbelievably warm.”
He also noted that the pain in his lower back seemed to have moved down to his knees. He said, “This practice is absolutely different from other practices I've come across. It healed me from within without my having to go through treatments.”
Cheng Wanji knows that many people are still searching for something wonderful like Falun Dafa. He affirmed that he “would work hard and stick with it.”
Song Runxiang works in an IT company as a programmer. He'd always been interested in cultivation practice and found Falun Dafa while surfing the internet. After attending the workshop he remarked, “Falun Dafa is a very good practice and can help one improve quickly.”
Song had studied many other qigong practices in the past, but shared, “This will be my last one. It can achieve something in four days that would take other practices 20 years. My experience proves that Falun Dafa is extraordinary!”
In the past, Mr. Song was able to see dim white light emitting from well-known monks, but noted, “In the video I saw Master surrounded by a golden aura. I knew without a doubt that Falun Dafa is truly a high-level cultivation method.”
Mr. Song felt a Law Wheel (Falun) spinning in his lower abdomen around the clock. “It was cleansing my body, which made me feel both warm and exhausted,” he said.
Quan Yingfen used to have back problems and couldn’t stand for even an hour. A friend of hers recommended Falun Dafa. She said, “It’s been two months and while my back still hurts, I can stand for an hour. What a miracle!”
She'd had an undiagnosed skin rash years ago that eventually disappeared. The rash came back during the workshop. “It started at my neck and spread all over my body. It was unbelievably itchy. But it is going away now.” She believes that her body was being cleansed and the rash was simply a manifestation of the body cleansing.
After reading Falun Dafa’s main book, Zhuan Falun, Ms. Quan shared her realization that “The purpose of Buddha coming to the secular world is to save us.”
Zhang Shangxun, another new practitioner, said that after the nine-day workshop his high blood pressure gradually came down. He is determined to be diligent after seeing all the benefits of the practice. Not only is Mr. Zhang determined to exercise every day with other practitioners, he also said, “Tonight I plan to join new practitioners to study the teachings together.”
