Clearwater, FL (PressExposure) January 26, 2011 -- Meet a Scientologist (http://www.scientology.org): The Wade Henry Juggler Extraordinaire story where Henry demonstrates the tools of his trade is now featured on the new Scientology Video Channel along with over 200 other profiles.
Henry may look like an ordinary guy, but appearances can be deceiving. True, he's up early for a quick bite to eat and off to work like the rest of us. But "work" is juggling chain saws or eating fire while riding a 12-foot unicycle.
Fresh out of college with a business degree in 1995, Henry, now 38, decided to tour the world before settling down. Halfway around the world from his native Toronto he ran out of money in Sydney, Australia. He created an act he could perform on the streets for tips. But natural entertainer that he is, he enjoyed the "work" so much; he has made it his lifelong career.
It was also in Sydney that Henry found Scientology, picking up and reading a copy of Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health. "I had questions about our spiritual nature," says Henry. "Reading books by L. Ron Hubbard, it was clear he not only had answers but also a practical technology that works."
It has also helped him concentrate. "I cannot be juggling a chain saw in front of hundreds of people and have my mind wandering into problems that I have back at home or things that happened last week," he says. "I need to be in the here and now and Scientology has helped me do that."
Returning home to Toronto, Henry continued with his Scientology studies. At the Church of Scientology of Toronto, he met and married wife Helen, a single mother of five, and instantly became the patriarch of a large and happy family that has grown to include a son-in-law and two grandchildren.
Wade Henry now lives in Clearwater, Florida, where the couple manages his business, The Wade Henry Show (http://www.wadehenryshow.com). They have used administrative technology developed by L. Ron Hubbard to evolve it from street entertainment to a thriving career with Henry performing nearly 600 shows a year, mostly at festivals and fairs with the occasional corporate event.
