Learn about the practice of Falun Dafa, the meditative system practiced by Shen Yun Performers

These workshops will provide an introduction to Falun Dafa, the spiritual discipline and meditation practice that is the heart and energy behind Shen Yun Performing Arts. Shen Run celebrates the divinely inspired beauty of classical Chinese dance, which is a unique part of the heritage of traditional Chinese culture. This ancient culture, in turn, is rooted in the life cultivation method taught by Falun Dafa (also called Falun Gong). Falun Dafa helps a person improve the mind and spirit by following the universal principles of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance in everyday life, while at the same time refining one’s body through the practice of standing qi gong exercises and a sitting meditation. The combination of these elements provides a path to achieving a healthy body, peaceful mind and enlightened spirit, with the ultimate goal of helping practitioners return to their original, “true self.”
