Psychologist Says Music of Shen Yun ‘Touches the emotionalism of who we are as beings’

“It’s very moving, very emotional. It’s just incredible music, incredible sounds. That [Chinese] part of it is what’s inspiring me or really touching me emotionally.”

“Look at all these people performing as one. The appreciation of that is—how that happens is incredible—it’s just something you don’t see normally in life.”

“It’s wonderful. It’s more than I expected. I listen to classical music predominantly. I really believe music like this, as a psychologist, stimulates certain parts of your brain. I truly believe that. It touches the emotionalism of who we are as beings.”

“It can be stimulating, but it also can be very calming too. I think music puts things in order in your brain. It kind of settles your brain, relaxes your brain.”

“There is an energy to it, but for me it’s more emotional. It’s deeply touching to me, it really is for some reason. … I just feel the emotion of it.”
