Human Rights Event

Another exciting event was held on the Freewinds recently and relayed for Scientologists around the world to see. This event was hosted, as is usual, by Mr. David Miscavige.

Incorporated into this event was a DVD with a difference; The United Nations Human Rights Declaration is not something most people know well as so a very impacting example of each of the 30 points is enacted on this DVD.

Also released were properties to educate parents and youth on the dangers of drugs, as part of the Churches of Scientology's anti-drug campaign which was kicked into high gear with this event.

All an all a very exciting event!

Another Site about Freewinds Jazz

Here's another cool site about the Freewinds Jazz Festival -- this one with photos from the 2004 event.

Here's the poster

And some photos of performers and audiences having a great time...

Freewinds Jazzy Carnaval

I just saw this great poster on last year's Freewinds Jazz Carnaval.

Stacy Francis was the featured artist. She is such an amazing singer and performer. I've seen her live about five times and each time I forget what a wallop she packs.

There's more information about the Freewinds on

More on the Maiden Voyage

I've been attending the Maiden Voyage events and each one has been incredible.

Three weeks ago David Miscavige gave an overview of the activities Scientologists are doing all over the world to expand their churches.

Two weeks ago we found out that 48 new Scientology missions were opened in towns and cities all over the world, and we also saw the plans for new Scientology churches in Orange County, Pasadena, Torino, Venezuela, Atlanta... there were more but I just can't remember them all.

Then last weekend we learned all about the Scientology anti-drug campaign and what Scientologists are doing to guarantee human rights. The Church of Scientology International recently helped Youth for Human Rights International create 30 public service announcements that illustrate all the rights laid out by the United Nations in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We were shown five of these ads at the event and they were so beautiful and so clear and so compelling. They take the subject, which is communicated in very dry, almost legal terms in the Universal Declaration, and turn it into something I believe will communicate to anyone who sees it.

Three of these PSAs can be downloaded from I Tunes (search I Tunes for "Youth for Human Rights")

I always love the briefings David Miscavige gives at these events, and these have been the best I've seen so far!

Freewinds Conventions

There is constant entertainment about the Freewinds, with artists from all over the world.

Also, every week there are conventions of various kinds where
Scientologists gather to make plans for improving their communities or their careers. They span the whole gamut, from how to accomplish the most with the Scientology Anti-drug campaign in an area where drugs are a real problem to the community, to how to expand the activities of a particular Scientology church, to how to become more successful as a singer, there is Scientology technology that applies to improving any condition.

And being on the Freewinds is just so much fun!
