Shen Yun Opened Up a Path Toward Kindness

“We came to the very first [Shen Yun performance] and it was at McCormick, and since then we have followed it, … and it’s just sort of an enlightening thing for me.”
 

“It was sort of, like, [seeing] it woke something up.”
 

“When you see the [ancient Chinese] culture and their beliefs, it’s something I had never been exposed to, but l… had always wondered about … . A path opened up and then I start reading the literature and thinking there really was more than what I had been taught; a different way of life, a different way of thinking.”
 

“I’d say [I’m] a lot calmer and I don’t let anything bother me, … and I am different with people, I am a lot more loving, not that I was ever unloving but a lot more loving, like I really love all people.”
 

“You should really come to see it just to see what else there is, rather than our own little path we’re on. Like what else there is in the world and what other people believe.”
