✨ If you’re at all curious:
• My spiritual practice, Falun Dafa
• If you’re interested in reading more, start with this to get an understanding of what qigong entails
• The main text we read is Zhuan Falun*
*Best to read start to finish in the shortest time possible for the highest benefit.

• If you want to learn more about Falun Dafa and qigong, check out local contacts in your area – there are practitioners globally and in most big enough-ish cities:

• My friend Chris over at China Uncensored made an incredibly informative video on what Falun Dafa is and why it’s being persecuted in China (YT video):

  1. I started watching you 3 years ago and kinda fell off bc I’ve been in an unhealthy mindset and I was afraid to grow and change but I’ve been binge watching all ur videos this past week and ur just so kind and beautiful and I love your philosophy on life. I went through the same thing at 20 I watched those documentaries too and went veg and lost a ton of weight but I was so unhappy. I’ve been intuitive eating for the past few years now and I’ve come to love my body outside of society standards. Anyway just thank u for ur content I’m finally back in the season of wanting to grow and it feels good 🌱

  2. Honestly I’m a 20-something working through several traumatic events and I’ve been on a self-development journey for about 5 years. It feels like I’m in the final stretch and finding you during a time when things are actually lining up and going well in my life has been a game changer. I’ve had a massive shift in perspective. Thanks to you I’m not living my life just waiting for the shoe to drop. I’m practicing mindfulness in everything I do and learning that those lazy feelings are there for a reason and I’m no longer fighting my down time. I’m not trying to be "on" 100 percent of the time.

  3. Rowena, I am so grateful to have found your channel at such an impactful time in my life. The idea to create systems (can’t remember which video it was) has so fundamentally shifted how I look at my day and how to get stuff done. And this video reminds me how much I love Japanese inspired foods and meals. Thanks so much for what you do!
