Thursday December 20, 2012 – Regular Kiwanis Meeting

 

Chinese Cultural Renaissance – Shen Yun, translated Divine Grace, is a twenty year old performing arts movement. It is dedicated to increasing awareness of the diverse 5000 year old Chinese (as opposed to the more generic Asian-Pacific) heritage. 

 

The Shen Yun cultural system was greatly diminished during the mainland “cultural revolution” period of the late 1960s. States a Shen Yun press release:

 

“One of the ancient names for China was Celestial Empire. The people of China   have long held that their magnificent culture was a gift from the heavens. Traditional Chinese virtues include truthfulness, compassion, integrity, tolerance, loyalty, and filial piety. Because of these values, Chinese people believed in self-refinement and the perfection of character.

 

“However, because the Chinese Communist Party has largely destroyed Chinese culture in the past 60 years, the values and customs of ancient China have been lost for a majority of Chinese people. This 25-minute presentation will discuss what is the genuine Chinese culture, the current global efforts of reviving Chinese it, and appreciating the art form of Shen Yun as one of the manifestations of this Chinese culture renaissance movement. “

 

This presentation will be conducted by Dr. Peter Wei, Los Angeles editor of the worldwide Epoch Times newspaper (published in 17 languages, including Hebrew in Israel according to this source).  Location will be the RKC weekly luncheon meeting at the California Mission Inn beginning at 12:10 pm
