    [post_content] => If you are part of the homeopathic community, you may be aware that Magic Pills, the film produced and directed by Ananda More, had its debut screening in London last month at the Society of Homeopaths' annual conference.

The event, much discussed among homeopaths on social media, was a high-quality, trailblazing start to the conference and AGM. It set the tone for an excellent weekend of high quality presentations and a wonderful eclectic gathering of the worldwide homeopathic community.

The event took place in an auditorium at the UCL School of Pharmacy and was attended by more than 160 delegates.

It was clear that many people had made a real effort to attend; it attracted worldwide attention and also brought together homeopaths from various registering bodies in the UK.

Mark Taylor, the Society's Chief Executive, introduced the event, thanking Ananda for coming and Marcus Christo for helping to facilitate.

Having seen the movie many times, I was not prepared for how I would feel seeing it on ‘the big screen'. But I was moved by the atmosphere and impressed by the quality and professionalism of the production. The content of film has been discussed and reviewed before so if you would like more details and an analysis of the film read the full review here.

A question and answer session with Dr Alison Fixsen, the Society’s research consultant, and Ananda followed, which raised interesting points and stimulating discussion.

Ananda went on to discuss how to host a screening. The process is really accessible and you can host a screening in your living room (she just asks for a minimum of 10 people) or hire a village hall, community area or cinema.

She also generously donated 20 per cent of the profits for all screenings booked over the conference weekend to the British Homeopathic Association's campaign, which the Society is supporting, for a judicial review of the NHS's plan to 'ban' GPs from prescribing homeopathy.

Other issues of major importance were discussed, given that many homeopaths were in attendance. These worldwide issues affect us all, our credibility and our livelihoods, as well as our ability to create a healthier world, so please don’t feel overwhelmed by the pleas for support. Just do what you can and share where you can. It is seriously for the greater good.

The campaign to challenge the Australian Report is crucial, so please sign the petition and circulate! It is vital to us all, as homeopaths and serious health professionals.

Overall, Magic Pills, with its dynamic, compelling​, honest and engaging content, paved the way ​for an inspirational and uplifting weekend.

​The positive ​themes set out in the film are those of unity, integration and respect​; it inspires balance, fairness and justice, overwhelmingly counteracting, in my opinion, the predictable negativity and ignorance of the sceptics.

The film opens a dialogue and juxtaposes the criticisms of the sceptic community with the large-scale, real world use and success of homeopathy and presents some of the genuine scientific data.

Ultimately, it highlights ​a system of medicine which must be taken seriously, given the evidence presented,​ and which is, absolutely, at times, ‘magic’ in its healing potential.
