Annie Lim (Canada)
Founder, WE WORLD Network, Luminate Summit
“Everyone has a personal unique story to share as we journey through our lives on earth. Our ancestors have been teaching us their wisdom through stories. They tell us stories about the people, the planet, the animals, the gods, the plants, the stars, and we pass these stories down to many generations. It is through stories; we connect deeply with each other. That to me is what humanity is about, true authentic connection from our Hearts. Theatre is a space created for us to express ourselves and to share our stories through performing art and art is our connection to Beauty, which is just another form of our Creator, our Divine Spirit. Performing art is a universal language, which breaks down barriers of communication. Through the Theatre of Transformation, we can inspire humanity to see who they truly are. World peace begins with inner peace and what a great way for individuals to transform through theatre. Through our own personal stories, we learn from each other’s pain, each other’s triumph, and each other’s mistakes. Through our own stories, we learn from our experiences and continue to grow. Through our own stories, we connect to our core self, which is Love, which is Oneness.”
