While working in the She Is Dallas booth at the VISIONS Women’s Expo, I had the opportunity to meet Ann Yang, Director of Southern USA Falun Dafa Association.   Ann was very passionate as she told all about the Shen Yun performance coming to Dallas in December.

When she first started telling me about it, I didn’t quite understand all that it is and represents.

Shen Yun.

What does that mean?

For Chinese, the words evoke a sense of wonder, magic, and the divine. I can tell you that I watched a short video of a Shen Yun performance and I certainly felt these things. It is breathtaking.

  1. My husband’s name is Shen. He is white. He also speaks fluent Spanish (something this coconut cannot do). But anyway, back to the name Shen. He likes to remind me that “Shen” means great spirit or god in Chinese. A lot. We actually thought about going to see this performance back when we saw it advertised at the State Fair of Texas.
