Truthfulness, compassion and forbearance. That is what practitioners of the Falun Gong-movement want to achieve. Yesterday they showed their exercises for physical improvement on Våghustorget in Örebro. At the same time they called the attention to the persecution against adherents of Falun Gong in China.

Falun Gong is a movement for physical and mental well being that includes meditation and exercises. It is a type of Qi Gong but there is a difference between the various methods of meditation.

“In Falun Gong there is a wholeness, it cultivates body and soul”, says Mats Karlsson, one of the persons that showed the method of Falun Gong.
The Falun Gong movement wants to make people aware of what is going on right now in China. Several adherents of Falun Gong have been killed or detained and the Chinese government has prohibited the movement’s meetings. The leaders in the Chinese Communist Party feels threatened by the movement as it has so many adherents. Right now, there is an exhibition, showing the Chinese Falun Gong adherent’s situation, at the City library of Örebro. While showing the exercises of Falun Gong, Mats Karlsson noticed a lot of interest from people passing by. Lately it has been quite popular to engage oneself in alternative ways of improving health. A friend of Mats recommended him the Falun Gong method four years ago.

“I was looking for value of life, the materialistic didn’t bring me anything. I have become stronger, physically yes but mostly mentally. I have let go of fears and I feel more secure and more harmonious.
