(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners were invited by the Paris municipal government to participate in an event called “Guiding People to a Better Life Forum” held in the Paris City Hall on June 17, 2024. The goal was to provide retirees with information about different ways to improve their lives.

Practitioners in Paris established a group practice site in the 18th arrondissement of Paris 20 years ago. They participated in activities hosted by the 18th arrondissement government of Paris and received positive reviews and recognition. This time, at the recommendation of the 18th arrondissement government, the Paris municipal government invited practitioners to introduce Falun Dafa and demonstrate and teach the exercises at the forum.

People were drawn to the peaceful Falun Dafa exercises and music and stopped to watch. Many started to learn them. The practitioners teaching the exercises noticed that those who were learning could do them well after being instructed just once. In addition, many elderly people were able to do all of the second exercise. Some said that they sensed a strong energy field.

People gathered around the practitioners for a long time and seemed reluctant to leave. They asked for information about the group practice sites and for Falun Dafa materials. Many said they loved the exercises and agreed with the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance.

A couple who attended the forum agreed with Falun Dafa’s principles. The husband, in particular, who is a philosopher, often lectures on values. He said, “The Falun Dafa exercises are powerful, and the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance are touching.”

Practitioners said that people were waiting to learn Dafa and that they therefore had a great responsibility. They reminded each other to be prepared to help more people learn Dafa.
