Renowned author Jack Canfield to speak in St. John’s

He’s a co-creator of the successful “Chicken Soup for the Soul” book series, and a star of the hit film “The Secret,” and later this month, Jack Canfield will share his ideas about how the law of attraction can help those who use it in St. John’s.

Canfield, a motivational speaker, will speak at Holy Heart Theatre

Sept. 28 as a fundraiser for the I Am Genie Foundation.

Founded in 2009 by Joshua Dawson, the I Am Genie Foundation grants wishes to those fighting cancer. Dressed in a red suit and elaborate blue genie mask, Dawson, a.k.a. the Experience Genie, has granted wishes to hundreds of cancer survivors in 70 cities, worth more than $1 million.

Dawson was inspired by his father, who was 53 when he died from cancer seven years ago. Dawson says while caring for his father during his final year, he wanted to bring him out for a day of fun and to take his mind off his battle; unfortunately, his dad was too ill.

At the event at Holy Heart, Canfield will share his insights on the law of attraction — the belief that a focus on positive thoughts will bring positive results, and likewise for negative thoughts — and tips for achieving personal and professional success.

“We’re very excited to be bringing Jack Canfield’s message to Newfoundland and Labrador,” Dawson said. “To have the honour to expose so many from my hometown,

St. John’s, to his positive message is very humbling. It’s going to be a magical night.”

Canfield said he’s also looking forward to the event.

“I’ll be teaching the real art of attraction, helping Newfoundlanders fulfil wishes they never dreamed possible.”

Tickets range from $49 to $199 (which includes a post-event social and meeting with Canfield), and are available at the Holy Heart Theatre box office, by calling 579-4424 or online at
