As a hospice volunteer I have attended training sessions conducted by Amy Camie of the SAF, and I am aware of her work with our patients at the de Greeff Hospice House in St. Louis. Amy's presentations on vibrational awareness and the positive effects this type of therapy can have via the mind-body connection (as suggested by research conducted by the SAF) challenge the tenets of conventional medicine and offer intriguing promise for the future treatment of disease.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how it has opened my eyes to the possibilities of alternative therapy in the treatment of disease and the well-being of patients.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

conduct the research that would allow it to responsibly advance the possibilities that music/vibration therapy can offer. Amy Camie is the right person at the right time to overcome institutional resistance to fundamental change.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

As an author and educator on the use of guided imagery in the medical world, Amy's music has been phenomenal in providing a supportive foundation for many. Because it is ONLY when a person feels strong enough on the inside that they can ever then find the strength to "rebuild" ... and actually "lift" themselves up to a newer and healthier place! What better gift can any musician give but a heart that is filled with the intention to heal? Thank you Amy, for all that you do to "gift" us just that!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

even the traditional medical world.

I work within the breast cancer community in St. Louis and have had countless miraculously positive experiences with the Scientific Arts Foundation, specifically Amy Camie and her music. I will TRY to condense these experiences to specific venues. Most importantly, Amy have gifted me with CD's to put into the hands of patients struggling with the side-effects of breast cancer treatments. The stories I have heard as a result of my clients' experiences with this music is beyond profound. I have chills all over my body and tears in my eyes as I recall some of the stories...sleep achieved with the help of her music made many of my clients feel more able to move through the rest of life (motherhood, professional, wife, friend) more peacefully and feeling more 'like themselves'. Amy has presented to all of the support groups/educational programs I have ever requested. Everyone loves her and feels the spirit of her intention instantly. I've witnessed miracles within these 'presentations' as well...tears and joy too. Some women, feeling consumed by sadness or anger, felt relief as she played her music for them in person. A day after one of Amy's presentations, a woman I knew for years struggled with grief and anger said she resisted coming to the Amy's talk because she only liked the 'clinical' presentations to keep up with research, etc. She said with tears in her eyes, "I felt different after Amy played. I took her CD and played it when I got home. I cried tears that I hadn't allowed and slept more deeply than I have in years. I plan on making her music a part of my every day, thank you." With years of stories like this one accummulated in my heart, it's difficult to put into words the "experience" I've had with Amy and the Scientific Arts Foundation. I also want to note I appreciate the foundation's commitment to clinically document the effects of the music...I know that is what it will take to get it into the hands of more cancer patients and others who would benefit. As a caregiver, I use Magic Mirror and the other CD's as a way of taking care of myself.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the lives of the cancer patients exposed to Amy's music on physical, emotional and mental levels...and then some.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

its clarity of intention. There is no ego involved. The Scientific Arts Foundation wants to help empower individuals in their own healing.

Ways to make it better...

everyone diagnosed with cancer was handed the Magic Mirror CD. The research had documented a change in "chemo brain" which is one of the worst side-effects my clients speak of.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am grateful, professionally and personally, for the Scientific Arts Foundation.

As a researcher and individual who has come to value the work that the Scientific Arts Foundation is accomplishing on a person to person level that I am amazed that cancer is still around. The director, Amy Camie is so dynamic and purpose driven that with such great energy behind the SAF efforts it seems that cancer does not stand a chance.. and when it comes to the dramatic research they are doing it seems that a cancer trouble spot "chemo brain " can be lessened significantly. My hat goes off to the effors of the SAF for their public educational seminars, low cost distribution of research music proven to reduce chemo related stress, personal intervention on a case my case basis and of course the time and talent of the director Amy Camie.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

THe looks on the faces of the individuals who are batteling cancer when they came in contact with the SAF research and of course Amy herself

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

take the need for grant $$$ directly to the public through media interventions

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The willingness to communicate, share and dream without regard to time ...it's only the person who matters most

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

exceptional

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make a huge impact in the war not only with cancer but other comorbidites such as diabetes, obesity, ADHD, and autism

Ways to make it better...

there were enough funds to carry out the SAF already approved IRB hospital based study.... if only a small grant of $60 - 70K could be realized then folks could start winning in the battle with cancer

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

money alone

One thing I'd also say is that...

if wishes, good deeds, tremendous effort, unfailing determination and humble heart felt prayers could generate dollars than the SAF would be a household word and forever identified as an organization who played a huge role in enabeling mankind to thrive

Amy Camie is a living angel. We are a hospice organization, and we have all of Amy's CD and use them all the time with our patients and families. Music has always been a source of comfort and enjoyment for most people, but Amy's harp music is theraputic and holistic...the body, mind and spirit in rhythm. She made a personal visit to one of our patients who stuffed all her emotions inside. While Amy played for her, the patient had an emotional release and wailed for quite some time. Amy just continued to play. She stopped playing when the patient stopped wailing and had drifted off into a deep sleep. The patient's response to the music was a life changing experience for one of our nurses present. It touched Amy too, and was an awesome example that what she is doing at the Scientific Arts Foundation is what she needs to continue doing in the art of music and healing. Namaste Mary Magill Founder and Executive Director Alternative Hospice

Amy vibrates at an angelic vibration, and so does her music because she puts her heart and soul into reaching out to others.

Ways to make it better...

AFter having prostate cancer surgery in 1996, I used the New Love CD for relaxation and meditation to speed my recovery. The last time I saw my urulogist he said "13 years cancer free." I attribute a lot of this to my change of lifestyle by using the music on the CD. Since then I have given other CD's to friends and family who had cancer and informed them of the research proving its effectiveness on cancer patients. As the Scientific Arts foundation continues it's goals and objectives, I want to help spread the word to others facing cancer to use the CD to improve their quality of life.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way the New Love CD helped me change my lifestyle and attitude while facing cancer.

I have used the music of Amy Camie personally, given her cds as gifts to my friends and included it professionally with clients in my private practice. I am a licensed psychologist specializing in anxiety disorders. Listening to the cd New Love is not just enjoyable its therapeutic benefit has been demonstrated by research. I strongly recommend that you reward the Scientific Arts Foundation's serious work.

The Great!

I could have found a broader audience to share the experience. I host a television program entitled Guidelines for Mental Health and have had Amy Camie as a guest on the program several times over the past 4 years.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

finding a vehicle to carry their exceptional knowledge and ability to the public.

One thing I'd also say is that...

an enormous amount of work is being done by the Scientific Arts Foundation without compensation and that needs to change.
