In addition to the physical exercises, Falun Gong practitioners also study spiritual teachings, taking them as a guide for daily life. And at the core of these teachings are the values of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. Originating in northeastern China, Falun Gong is now practiced in countries all around the world! For those of you who want to find out more, check out http://falundafa.org/ and http://faluninfo.net/ . We will be having them every week throughout the semester, and newcomers are welcome at any point in the year! All Falun Dafa club activities are open to public and free of charge.
