Meditate in front of city hall? Why not?


WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Watertown City Hall’s front lawn isn’t the first place you’d think of to meditate.

Ling Wu thinks a little differently.

Every night, she offers a Falun Dafa meditation class starting at 5:30 p.m.

The practice begins with four stretches before finishing with a meditation.

Wu says Falun Dafa is meant to help people be healthier. She believes it's helped treat different pains she used to endure.

"For me, I had back pain and I had a left-side headache," she said, "so after practicing Falun Dafa, my back pain went away and my headache just went away."

Wu says she teaches the meditation independent from any organization.

The classes are free.
