CAST is a transformational technology that says, “This world is our stage, and my life is the greatest part I will ever play!”

CAST is a team building theater workshop ( 60 ~ 150 people ) that explores your new empowered story. One of our goals with CAST is to be a nation wide platform for the creation of new stories. What is our individual & collective story? and how does that affect you, your business, your community, your world? In our CAST workshops we teach the actions steps that get you in touch and grounded with what success & significance means to you! This is a CAST CALL for Leaders causing Leaders, Visionaries, Social Healers and Social Artists and HEROES within us all! Welcome to CAST!



Leigh McCloskey “The Hieroglyph of the Human Soul”

Leigh is my hero.

A poet / Social Artist, A renaissance man, weaving a story of renewal and deep mythic change. I love how Leigh sets the container, he’s brilliant, speaking his truth for all to feel and adopt as their own.

Thank you Leigh for your mythic story!

At CAST Theater workshops we focus on Transformational FILMS (like the ones below) that shape the logos and mythos of the human condition.  We are the characters that we read about and see in movies, they are us, and whispering in our ear, “Now it’s your turn to transform yourself and the world.”  One of The Cast workshop exercises is called, “Movies on a mission”, where we show a transformational scene of a movie (1 or 2min) then break into groups and discuss it’s deeper meaning, individually, culturally and its metaphoric effect at a global level.

“The Cast Theater process brings passion, purpose and art into lives and communities far and wide. Lives are renewed as the new story is quickened In the hearts and minds of its participants. Cast is a blessing to this world and time.”

I’m so honored to be working with Patrick Solomon (Director) His movie in my opinion is a triumph of the human soul, a beautiful window into what is possible (Victim to Hero) I’ve been teaching workshops about The Hero’s Journey for the last 10 years, using Joseph Campbell’s work as my soul compass and north star. Now to have a movie about Joseph’s philosophy is stellar.. SEE IT THEN BE IT! Thanks Pat, you are my new hero.

Finding Joe is an exploration of famed Mythologist Joseph Campbell’s studies and their continuing impact on our culture. Through interviews with visionaries from a variety of fields interwoven with enactments of classic tales by a sweet and motley group of kids, the film navigates the stages of what Campbell dubbed The Hero’s Journey: the challenges, the fears, the dragons, the battles, and the return home as a changed person. Rooted in deeply personal accounts and timeless stories, Finding Joe shows how Campbell’s work is relevant and essential in today’s world and how it provides a narrative for how to live a fully realized life – or as Campbell would simply state, how to “follow your bliss”.

“My life is a picture of my thoughts, speech, beliefs, action and attitude”,

Well, this image says it all..  Thank you Matthew Engelhart, owner of Cafe Gratitude for letting me use this image for CAST. 

Dear reader if you look closely at this image you see something wonderful.  I would invite your eye to notice the film. 

It reads, “My life is a picture of my thoughts, speech, beliefs, action and attitude”, the big 5. 

The SPIRIT is the LIGHT in the projector, projecting your LIFE through the 5 ways of BEING.  Your LIFE and the  5 ways of BEING are symbiotically connected and magic mirrors of each other.  Each word a window into the game  for life.  Ahhhhhh, I love this image, you can purchase this as a poster on the Cafe Gratitude website, just click on the image above.  Remember you write the script that makes it to the film for the world to see, a clear view of you, a view of your reality creation,  a view of your divine narrative, for others to interact with….

Thanks Cafe Gratitude!

“The movie will begin in five moments, the mindless voice announced, all those unseated will await the next show, as we seated and we’re darkened the voice continued.  The program for this evening is not new, you’ve seen this entertainment through and through, you’ve seen your birth, life and death, you might recall all the rest. Did you have a good world when you died, enough to base a movie on?”

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages”.

My name is Joseph Jacques the Visionary behind THE CAST.

I have discovered in my research profound mentors, authors, poets and prophets, with an ability to see clearly, and very often with this clarity arrives an unfinished circle. It is this unfinished circle that guides my efforts toward discovery of individual and collective truths. This feeling strengthens as we all realize our full potential, our collective intelligence, and our common heritage.

THE CAST: Social Theater, creates a stage for the ultimate witness, activist, and promoter of ethical / humanitarian actions.
