Description

Summer Solstice and The Healing Power of Creativity

A Dream Whose Time Has Come!

RE-IGNITING ACHA — The Academy of Creative and Healing Arts

Keynote speaker: Junie Swadron

Guest Speakers Include:

—Hazel Meredith, Executive Director, Mental Health Recovery Partners (South Vancouver Island)

—Lawrence Cooper, Author, Poet Laureate in the Comox Valley, and Psychologist who knows both sides of the couch

—A viewing of my play, Madness, Masks and Miracles: A Play to Help Dispel Myths and Stigmas about Mental Illness.

“This play is a winner. June Swadron and her writing team and actors engage the audience immediately and throughout with what it’s like to have a mental illness in contemporary society. We feel the anguish and confusion, we witness the denial in co-workers and family, we experience the shame of the sufferer and the multiple losses and we learn painfully about the limitations of our treatments. Yet this production is not cynical or depressing. It is moving, inspiring and intensely evocative. A gift. A call-to-arms. A must-see for every Canadian citizen.” —Dr. Michael Meyers, President of the Canadian Psychiatric Association

—Plus a Variety of Outstanding Artists and Entertainers!

It’s the Summer Solstice. It’s my 70th Birthday. And YOU are cordially invited to help me Celebrate it by Re-Igniting my Dream Come True.

Creative Expression is not just a fun thing, it’s a Gift. It’s a Lifeline.

Please join us for an extraordinary evening of creativity, stimulating discussion, interviews, music and an opportunity to be part of a movement that will enhance the lives of countless people living with mental health challenges.

ACHA is an Integrated Centre — for everyone. People fear each other out of ignorance. Once we get to know a person’s story, we see our common humanity.

As well, this dream has not gone away in close to a decade. It keeps coming back so it’s a true soul calling. And what I have come to know for sure is, when we place our imagination on High by pulling out ALL the stops in order to allow God’s Grace to enter, MIRACLES ARE BORN! Let’s Create A Living, Breathing Miracle in the building of The Academy for Creative and Healing Arts.
