Therapist Finds Herself ‘Going to Heaven’ at Shen Yun

“It is like going to heaven.”

“[The dancers] are doing things that I cannot do, and when they do it, I almost feel like I am doing it with them. It is like meditating. And It is just so beautiful I cannot even describe it. But I really love it.”

“I feel very much connected … It just lifted the spirit.”

“I am a massage therapist … So it requires you to take a personal inventory, and to me, healing is a very spiritual thing. And so, I think, helping people to feel better, or helping them to heal is a gift. And this [performance] is a gift also—the dancing and the music and the singing.”

“The voice. And I love the words. I love the message of the song. It is true, what [the soprano] says.”

“Your soul just kind soars with them as they dance and sing. It is beautiful.”
