Climb for Freedom


Thursday, December 4  
7 pm to 9 pm
Wheeler Opera House

Featuring Leadership Guide and Film Director, Stephen McGhee
Hosted by Jeff Patterson, Success Coach

Jeff Patterson of Aspen Success Coaching hosts an evening of inspiration, impact and adventure that kicks off with the local premier of Stephen McGhee’s documentary film, Climb for Freedom.

This intimate film was created as a powerful call to action, challenging leaders from all walks of life to push beyond the status quo. It will transport you 22,830 feet up and deep into the profound life changes of 7 men, determined to conquer the highest peak in the Western and Southern Hemisphere.

And when the film ends, your Personal Expedition begins.

Stephen and Jeff, one of the film’s 7 climbers, will move this vital story off the screen and into your life as you become part of a dialog that literally has the power to change you—and change the world.

Tickets $10 ($5 per ticket will be gifted to Mountain Rescue Aspen)
Reservations: Wheeler Box Office   970-920-5770

Anne Van Druten, MS, LAc

Anne Van Druten, MS, LAc graduated from the Swedish Institute School of Acupuncture in NYC, August 2008 with a Bachelor of Professional Studies/Masters of Science. She studied Classical Chinese Medicine under the tutelage of Jeffrey C. Yuen, internationally renowned Master of Chinese Medicine and 88th generation Taoist Priest.

In August of 2007, Anne traveled to Beijing, China where she observed Chinese Doctors of Acupuncture and their administration and treatment of patients.  She also trekked the 11,000 foot pilgrimage of the Emei Mountain in Sichuan Province, China, one of the four sacred Buddhist mountains of China and birthplace of Buddhism on Chinese territory.

In 2009, Anne furthered her studies with a one-year program in Chinese Dietary therapy with Jeffrey Yuen.  In this class she learned that one’s diet can complement their healing, or more commonly, interfere with one’s health.

Anne has had a private practice since 2009 and has worked doing community acupuncture for three years. She finds great fulfillment in helping her patients achieve better health with natural medicine and a healthy lifestyle.

Anne  is the founder of Colorado Community Acupuncture. Van Druten CCA Logo
