'Healing - The Movie' Wins Three Awards by Heather Cumming January 2009
Greetings Dear Friend of the Casa,
First of all, I wish you much joy, excellent health, harmony, peace and prosperity in this year, 2009 that we have just entered and the years ahead!
Thank you Mary Kerin and your team for the wonderful work on the new site of Friends of the Casa and the many years that you have devoted your energy, time, and love to the Friends of the Casa web site. Immense gratitude for your dedicated service to John of God’s mission, all those seeking information about the Casa, and keeping us all connected.
I have some exciting news to share with Friends of the Casa:
In December, Dorothy Cooke and I were honored and grateful to accept an invitation to Monaco by producers David Unterberg and Andrea Wolffer to attend the Monaco Angel Film Festival (non violent films). David's film company (David-Films Salzburg), documentary ‘Healing’ honoring Dom Inacio and John of God’s mission, was to be screened at the Festival. I was invited to give a brief talk immediately before the screening, as a form of introduction to John of God - his mission, his work and The Entities - preparing a very mainstream audience to the spiritual and physical interventions that would be viewed. Dorothy Cooke touched the hearts of many with her heart-warming message of love and kindness at the end of the screening.
I am thrilled and delighted to report that on the 6th December 2008 at the award ceremony, the film ‘Healing’ won three awards: "Best Humanitarian Angel Film Award; "Independent Spirit Award" and director/co-producer/cinematographer David Unterberg: Best cinematographer Angel Award. http://www.monacofilmfest.com/2008program/index.htm
The DVD Healing is presently not available to purchase as David- Films Salzburg seek appropriate distribution for this film. ’Healing’ has been accepted for screening at the New Zealand Film Festival and is being entered for screening at film festivals in USA and Europe. As soon as distribution or sales of the video and music are available I will ask Mary Kerin to post a message on Friends of the Casa site. (Please see below for more information on the film "Healing" and the production team members).
David Unterberg and your team, thank YOU and congratulations on bringing clarity to this subject that is often underestimated, misunderstood, misrepresented, and sometimes considered intangible or beyond words. Your insightfulness, sensitivity and integrity captures the essence of the profound work that is brought into the world through John of God's medium-ship, dedication, faith and mission. I know that Medium Joao is extremely grateful and touched by this honor that has been bestowed upon his work and service to God.
In closing, many have been asking for the dates for the John of God Event 2009 USA - Omega Institute for Holistic Studies: Dr. Augusto, and Medium Joao accepted Omega's invitation to once again present the John of God healing event on their beautiful campus - Omega Institute for Holistic Studies, 150 lake Drive, Rhinebeck, state of New York, USA - eomega.org Phone (Registration): Call toll free 877.944.2002 in US or 845.266.4444 )
The dates are: Monday September 28th, 29th, 30th and 1st October, 2009. Registration will begin mid-February and I will immediately email Mary Kerin as soon as we have a firm date for registration for the event later this month.
