Shen Yun Shows the ‘Innermost Expression’ Through Dance

“The appreciation of the divine, historically through Chinese culture and particularly ancient wisdom which respects everything; so that”s redemptive to see that our neighbours in China share the same values we have in that way.”

 

“If the divine were to come to Earth and describe to the people how to live wisely, compassionately, lovingly—those values are being expressed here.”

 

“So if the soul is the innermost portion of the person or the relationship with the divine is the innermost, culture is the next layer out, and then the next layer out beyond that is society. So how do we present in the most external way the most innermost aspects of who we are? How the innermost expression of the person can be visible through physical dance.”
