I’m in the middle of what has become my annual Canada tour and it’s such a pleasure to feel all the love from my spiritual kinspeople here. I think of myself as “almost Canadian” since my parents were both born in Ontario, my father in Chatham in 1914 and my mother in Hamilton in 1916. I grew up in Detroit and Canada is part of my world. Last month I spoke at the Hay House I Can Do It Conference in Vancouver—wonderful and beautiful as always. And on June 29, I’ll be speaking at the Hay House I Can Do It Conference in Toronto. It’s the weekend before Canada Day on July 1 so maybe we’ll have some early fireworks to enjoy.
I have some great Canada stories, like the time I got lost in Vancouver’s Stanley Park and instead of my usual six miles ended up running a marathon before I found my way out! Lately, I’ve been sharing one of my favorite Toronto experiences with my audiences. It happened several years ago when an unsuspecting young man helped me illustrate an eternal truth we all need to be reminded of:
I was preparing to speak at an I Can Do It conference and I decided to bring an orange on stage with me as a prop for my lecture. I opened a conversation with a bright young fellow of about twelve who was sitting in the front row.
“If I were to squeeze this orange as hard as I could, what would come out?” I asked him.
He looked at me like I was a little crazy and said, “Juice, of course.”
“Do you think apple juice could come out of it?”
“No!” he laughed.
“What about grapefruit juice?”
“What would come out of it?”
“Orange juice, of course.”
“Why? Why when you squeeze an orange does orange juice come out?”
He may have been getting a little exasperated with me at this point. Continue Reading
Wishes Fulfilled! A Dr. Wayne W. Dyer World Cinema Premiere
Presented by Screenvision and Cinema Events
Premiere Performance Exclusive In Theaters Nationwide January 28, 2010, With One Encore Performance in Early February 2010.
On Thursday, January 28, 2010, a new and unique cinema experience will be offered to moviegoers nationwide – for the first time ever, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, best-selling author of more than 30 books and affectionately known as “the father of motivation” by fans, brings “Wishes Fulfilled,” his newest motivational presentation, to theatres as a special Cinema Event.
“Wishes Fulfilled” is produced by Cinema Events, LLC, in cooperation with Hay House, Inc. and is distributed by Screenvision. “Wishes Fulfilled” was created at Hay House’s late-2009 “I Can Do It!” conference in Tampa, Florida where Dr. Dyer delivered to over 3,000 attendees an empowering exploration of the dynamics of our thought processes, and revealed how the ancient wisdom of the Tao Te Ching helped him shift from ambition to a new kind of meaningful consciousness. Dr. Dyer’s enlightening address was shot in high definition with digital surround sound exclusively for the cinema.
Hay House’s unique “I Can Do It!” conferences featuring Dr. Dyer are generally held only twice a year in varied locations worldwide; this is an unprecedented showing for Dr. Dyer. For the first time, viewers will be treated to a full-length motivational workshop by way of the silver screen, delivering a unique, front row experience. This is a rare and up-close opportunity to experience this renowned author and expert in the field of self-development.
As a special gift from Dr. Dyer, “Wishes Fulfilled” moviegoers will receive a free download of his program “Putting the Excuses Begone! Paradigm Into Action to Work in Your Life,” a twenty dollar value, free with admission.
“In preparing ‘Wishes Fulfilled’ for the theatre, our goal was to provide fans and friends who were not able to make it to our conferences with the same up-close and inspiring experience we always strive to deliver,” says Dr. Dyer. “I’m quite proud of this production and appreciate the partners that worked with me to make this a reality.”
“Dr. Dyer has so many fans around the country. This is a tremendous opportunity to bring his most recent and moving guidance to more people in such a sensible way,” says Megan Tarter, Co-Producer. “We wanted to produce a film that befits the importance of Dr. Dyer’s message and deliver it to moviegoers.”
“The self-help/self-development field is exploding, and we believe there is strong demand to experience the inspiration of one of America’s foremost motivational gurus on such an impactful platform as the big screen,” said Darryl Schaffer, Executive Vice President, Exhibitor Relations for Screenvision.
