TAICHUNG, Taiwan— “I am infused with great energy tonight,” said Dr. Feng Shang-Chun, owner of a psychiatric clinic, after the two-hour at Shen Yun Performing Arts.
“It’s my job to face patients with psychiatric pressure. I am like a dumpster as they tell me their problems. I myself also need adjustment and good energy,” Dr. Feng said. He talked about his work and explained how New York-based Shen Yun had helped him reset, “As I project myself into the world Shen Yun created, wow, all the bad energy dissolved. I was rejuvenated with something very joyous.”
Dr. Feng was awarded one of the Best 100 Doctors by Taiwan’s media, and Outstanding Military Doctors by Taiwan’s Ministry of Defense. He came to Shen Yun for the first time in the evening on April 8 with his wife and children.
“I have seen too much negativity and pain. Shen Yun saves me by presenting beauty and kindness, all terrific energy,” Dr. Feng said. “All my internal organs were massaged by the happy atmosphere and I was able to completely relax.”
Dr. Feng was most impressed by Shen Yun’s costume design. “The first thing I noticed as the curtain rose was the costumes. They caught my eyes like bright sunlight,” he said. “The costumes combined with the charming dances, the live music, and the high-tech background projection are what make Shen Yun one of its kind.”
According to Shen Yun’s website: “Every costume in a Shen Yun performance is presented with brilliant colors, displaying a splendid spectacle—from the Tang Dynasty’s ‘Raiment of Rainbows and Feathers’ to imperial dragon robes, phoenix coronets, and cloud capes; from the civil official’s headdress and robes to the warrior’s helmet and armor; and from the traditional rightward cross-collared Han clothing to the ethnic attire of the Manchurian, Tibetan, Dai, Mongol, and Uyghur ethnic groups.”
Surprises kept coming for Dr. Feng until the end. “The big emblem in the last scene [in ‘Hope for the Future’] put me in a very calm place that is full of divine energy. I thought I was on stage with the rest of the artists, where gods were next to me offering me comfort, hope, and a cure,” he said.
With such strong feelings, Dr. Feng came to the conclusion that “gods must have existed in this world.”
