    Dr. Trey designed an effective, empirical study that shines light not only on the mental and physical health benefits of practicing Falun Gong, but also on the spiritual benefits. This support of the powerful mind-body-spiritual connection is likely to validate current practitioners, encourage new ones, and stimulate further research. The insight given about integrating meditative practices into counseling makes this a must-read for helping professionals.

    As a counselor, Dr. Trey focuses on the realm of clients’ perceptions. As a researcher, she contributes soundly to the readers’ understanding of the effects of Falun Gong by focusing on observing those perceptions. I practice spirituality and meditation and this book has helped me see that practicing Falun Gong can improve one’s health in multiple ways.
