Falun Gong practitioners in Vancouver area held an experience sharing conference on January 21st, 2007, to exchange their personal experiences and thoughts on cultivation, validating the Fa and doing the three things. Though it was a small, local area conference, every Falun Dafa practitioner treated it very seriously. In the peaceful atmosphere, sixteen Falun Gong practitioners shared their experiences. Young Falun Gong practitioners recited "On Buddha Law" and poems from Hong Yin together on stage at the beginning of the conference.

The conference covered a variety of topics. Several Falun Gong practitioners talked about their change of mentality during promotion of the Chinese New Year Gala, and how they overcame other difficulties and overcame interference. Everyone understood that difficulties will disappear when they maintain their righteous thoughts.
One Falun Gong practitioner shared her experiences of promoting withdrawals from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and gave many good examples of phoning China. Many people who received her calls quit the CCP or its related organisations right away. Among them were workers, farmers, students and even CCP officials. As she made improvements in her phone calls, more and more quit the CCP. She understood deeply why Master said,
"I just don't believe their consciences
are irretrievably lost."
("For the Good of the World")
Another Falun Gong practitioner shared her experience of working as a sales representative for a media company. She used to think that she couldn't talk well, and was intimidated by phone calls. But eventually she became relaxed when talking to customers. She said it was quite a cultivation experience for her. Her sales went well when she had righteous thoughts.
Some practitioners shared their experiences of delivering truth-clarification newspapers and distributing newsletters at subway stations. Some older practitioners were very persistent, rain or shine. Many people were touched by them.
A couple of young practitioners talked about how they balanced their Dafa work and their family roles at critical moments such as when promoting the New Year Gala. Their spouses eventually supported what they did. Their experience sharing left a deep impression on fellow practitioners.
The Chinatown truth-clarification team talked about changes among Chinese people in Chinatown made after their truth-clarification. Some practitioners talked about their experiences of peacefully protesting around the clock in front of the Chinese Consulate and their truth clarification at the visa office. Some talked about their experiences working as reporters and editors at truth-clarification media, of doing exercises outdoors every morning, of studying the Fa starting at 4:00 a.m. every morning, of dissolving karma, and of searching their hearts for attachments when facing conflicts.
Practitioners were inspired by their fellow practitioners' experiences and saw where they lagged behind others. They are determined to keep do well.
