Presented at the 3rd International Conference on Spirituality and Psychology, 13-15 March 2018, Bangkok, Thailand.
This presentation showcases case examples of the mindful practice of Falun Gong as an antidote for overcoming anxiety, depression, and PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).
Various studies have demonstrated that Falun Gong is beneficial for overall mind, body, and spiritual improvement. Falun Gong has shown to help in reducing anxiety, stress, and a myriad of physical and psycho-emotional issues.
An increasing number of counselors/therapists are bringing Eastern meditative practices into the therapy room. Many helping professionals integrate techniques and introduce them to clients.
Likewise, the presenter integrated Falun Gong into her therapeutic work back in 2001. Also known as Falun Dafa, Falun Gong is an ancient Chinese spiritual cultivation system with elements from Buddhist and Taoist philosophies.
Many Westerners dub the practice as ‘Chinese yoga’ in their understanding of what is Falun Gong for them.
Overcoming Anxiety, Depression, & PTSD
Using case examples, Dr. Trey illustrates the mindful practice of Falun Gong as an antidote for overcoming anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
Through practicing the exercises and reading the teachings of the practice, these individuals recovered. And millions others also resolve their physical, psycho-emotional, and spiritual issues from practicing Falun Gong.
The presentation endeavors to throw light how this ancient self-cultivation discipline can serve as an intervention or coping strategy.
Practicing Falun Gong can be a self-help strategy. It can spark self-healing and self-recovery for those seeking the path less travelled.
The cultivation aspect of Falun Gong focuses on constantly looking within to improve oneself. This aspect of examining oneself is akin to being ‘in therapy without the therapist.’
