“Getting Older Actively” was the tagline at the two-day senior citizens’ fair InVita as part of the Bremen shopping and experience fair “HanseLife” on September 8-9, 2021. Nearly 100 exhibitors presented their information to the older generation.
Falun Dafa practitioners from Bremen (located in the northern part of Germany) participated in the event. At their booth, interested visitors encountered a very special contribution to this topic. They learned about this holistic meditation practice called Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong, which is rooted in the ancient culture of China.

“Hanselife 2021” was Bremen’s first fair after a hiatus of nearly 18 months due to the pandemic. The practitioners were pleased to have the opportunity to introduce Falun Dafa’s five gentle and powerful exercises to seniors and their companions at the fair this year. Visitors were invited to try out the exercises on the stage. They had a chance to experience the feeling of opening the energy channels in the body and harmonizing the circulating energy, thus helping them to become deeply relaxed and peaceful.
In Search of a Path for Inner Peace
People who stopped at the booth learned about Falun Dafa’s guiding principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and seemed encouraged by the discussion on the connection between body, mind, and health.
A middle-aged bus driver had read the announcement that Falun Dafa would be at the fair and it caught her interest so she visited the practitioners’ booth. She said she was “looking for a way to find more inner peace.” She was very taken with the atmosphere at the booth and the fact that Falun Dafa is shared free of charge. She accepted the Minghui brochure, enjoyed meeting the practitioners, and was pleased to learn about the practice site in Bremen.
A woman who works at the Social Security Office approached the booth and said that she had already had some experience with qigong, but did not know about Falun Dafa. However, she appreciated Dafa’s guiding principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. She commented that, although it would be a long journey to align oneself with these principles, it would be worthwhile. A practitioner gave her a lotus flower with a pendant that had “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” written on it.
The director of a retirement community invited practitioners to present Falun Dafa and the exercises to the residents at her facility.
