Professor Inspired by Shen Yun Spirituality

“I love it very much, I love the spiritual elements to it, I love how deeply spiritual it was. How mentally it was inspiring to see the body move so freely and so beautifully, but it was very inspiring to hear the music and to hear the message in the music.

“It was really like a feast for the eyes, all the beautiful colors, the beautiful sentiment and the devotional, longing was there for people to connect with something deeper, to connect with the divine.”
***
“I enjoyed the message that life is short, there is impermanence in life, we have to enjoy the moment, that we all have destiny, we are all on a journey going back to our divine home. … It was a beautiful combination—so it was perfect for the body, for the mind and for the spirit.”
***
“I felt deeply touched and spoken to by the message. It reminds me of the power of the sound, the power of human body. and how sound and body can work together to really have a deep spiritual experience—it has everything included that can deeply inspire somebody.”

“I plan to tell my students, my friends, that it’s not only a dance performance, it’s actually a spiritual experience that you can have. An inspiring experience to help you connect with something deeper.”
