shin-nan-da: To be elated

When that state of shinnanda continues and deepens instead of just happening occasionally, it develops into an inspired, artistic soul, an ardor for study that never wearies, or a spirit of craftsmanship and dedication to one’s work.

Dahn Yoga & Health Centers, Inc., a national leader in health and wellness, continues their special “Learn Korean” segment for practitioners in their newsletter, Dahn Yoga Life. Every monthly issue offers definitions of the meaning behind a Korean word or phrase, and adds to understanding about Korean Culture. This month’s issue explains the passion expressed with the word, “Shinnanda.”

The August 2013 article, “Learn Korean: Shinnanda” illustrates the joy that is communicated with this one expression of elation and excitement. As the article explains, the word’s ancient Korean roots are found in in two words that together mean, “The god in me is coming out.”

With further examples for its use, greater understanding develops as to the human longing to creatively express ourselves and the passion for one’s joy of life that is communicated by exclaiming “Shinnanda!”
