About Jeff

Jeff Burnett , son of Howard and Maggi, (Gemini) first born of four.

Resided in USA, England, Europe, Canada

Thank God for the performing arts where multiple personality is not a disorder but a norm. Since dropping and breaking the gold balls (props) for the baby at the nativity play in Kindergarten, the search for purpose, wisdom and meaning through the performing arts has continued.

I have been creating characters, scenarios, and audience experiences since that time. As a young adult I got whacked on the head by authors like Velikovsky, Jean Houston, Joseph Campbell, Rumi, Ouspensky, and Peter Brook and twisted, pulled and heart opened up by a variety of depth experiences in the trans-personal psychology, quantum physics, research theater, and the work in the awakening realm.

Having gone on to create transformational theater experiences, often in non-traditional settings for many years, it is a special privilege to play a role in the changing of perception and sometimes behaviour of the participants/audience members. Projects are multi-disciplinary making an immersive experience for the audience. Some highlights include: The KISS Komedy: a 24 hour long show staged in and around cities in Holland in 1982. Terra Continuum staged in Stony Creek Quarry Ct. (mid 90's).... Official over view: attended Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Arts in London; Member of Liquid Theatre, London; taught at Yale University Theater Studies and Divinity School, Co-director of International Theater Research Group KISS (in Holland), worked with Roy Hart Theater in France, Suzuki Company of Toga in Japan. Acted in the first incarnations of Conversations with Willie. Got some film and TV credits as well.

Jesai Jayhmes (hit the scene in 1999).
He specializes in training professionals in all career paths to communicate more effectively, to create dynamic experiential learning environments, and build synergy in groups. He uses the transforming processes found in classical and experimental theater training and personal development to support others in their purpose driven mission. He is also a theater artist, director and writer of the classic on male sexuality, intimacy and co-dependency: Conversations with Willie. The Vagina Monologues meets Conversations with God. (Oh, That Willie!)


Harold Good (appeared for the first time in 2008)
He is currently a voice and a virtual presence. An eclectic metaphysical seeker after truth. His sense of humour appears to be outlandish, random and just plain weird. Its hard to know if he is someone to be taken seriously or with grains of salt. He collaborates with angels named Mike and Michael and works on impossible projects such as bringing All and Everything to the world. A tall order in deed, but Harold seems to be undaunted in the task. Each day something. If you want to dig a garden you are given a hoe. (youtube channel: Haroldcominggood)

The next project for the team is taking "Willie" global and the development of an International Performing Art Centre on beautiful retreat acreage that will act as an incubator for new projects, a training center for performers dedicated to using their art for social change, a destination for attendance at festivals and retreats and a template for sustainable communities which could be the next stage of societal evolution on the planet.
