“We are the individual carriers of fate’s unending plotlines and we enter the stage of life inclined to play specific roles and bring to life certain dramas.  The comedies and tragedies of the endless drama of life are continually recast through us with the auditions occurring before birth.  People take up the archetypal roles of sinner and saint, of tyrant and victim, of lover and outcast; yet each brings a unique twist and characteristic style to the plot.  For, that too is fate, the twist that makes each soul specific, unusual in some way, and ultimately unique.”

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.

Thanks Leigh I see your light, it guides us well to our own living library.


“Cast 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 it’s participants. Cast is a blessing to this world and time.”


-Jean Houston

I’ve been a student of Jean’s for the last 10 years, she is a National Treasure of this world.  She is currently advising the President of the United Nations and is applying her work in Social Artistry all over the world.  I am honored to have her behind my work.

About the Film

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”.

Featuring: Deepak Chopra, Mick Fleetwood, Rashida Jones, Tony Hawk, Catherine Hardwicke, Laird Hamilton, Robert Walter, Akiva Goldsman, Sir Ken Robinson, Robin Sharma, Lynne Kaufman, Alan Cohen, Brian Johnson, Joseph Marshall III, Rebecca Armstrong, Chungliang Al Huang, David L. Miller, Gay Hendricks, David Loy and Norman Ollestad.

Joseph’s short blog…

CAST is a philosophical campaign to shift the climate of peoples thinking.  A philosophy that embraces the great I AM.   (Quick clarification)

I means GOD,

AM means ACTION.


This philosophical campaign highlights Shakespeare’s quote, that “All the world’s a stage”, and you are GOD-ACTION occupying the story that seeded in your soul. The great mythological adventure starts with a hero’s quest on his or her path to the realization of I AM.  Joseph Campbell, calls this, Separation, Initiation and Return.  This is the path of the Hero.  I also feel what Shakespeare was saying in his quote “All the world’s a stage.”  Is, we are all actors enacting the great myth of our adventure to the I AM.  Our job at CAST is to mirror to the audience / world the many variation’s of the I AM philosophy/story by offering social tools, Social Architecture, Social Theatre, games, workshops, short movies, curriculum’s, conscious commercials, Story-Based-Strategy, and an open hand to weave the great myth of enlightenment for all to embrace as truth-reality in their own lives.

As Social Artist and Social Healer,

I accept the task to steward humanity

back to the I AM, and to play fully on

the stage of life as Godaction!

“Is everybody in? Is everybody in? Is everybody in? The ceremony is about to begin. The entertainment for this evening is not new, you’ve seen this entertainment through and through you have seen your birth, your life, your death….you may recall all the rest. Did you have a good world when you died? -enough to base a movie on??”
Jim Morrison
“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”.

William Shakespeare

Talks about the CAST of characters in the story and what they’re called to do.

What Shakespeare called “The Players”, today is called the CAST.

My name is Joseph Jacques the Visionary behind C.A.S.T.

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 Yin feeling strengthens as we all realize our full potential, our collective intelligence, and our common heritage.  I am that I am, you in conscious action and words.

CAST, my philosophy, creates a stage for the ultimate witness, activist, and promoter of ethical / humanitarian actions.


1. To provide a safe group process (a Social Theatre). Where awareness, communication  & trust manifest positive action for individuals, communities, and societies.

2. Our goal is to discuss the new emerging story, and how we play a direct role in defining & re-defining, the Conflict, Characters, Story-board, Foreshadowing, action steps, the plot, the Assumptions.

3. To Honor all multi-cultural inner-generational stories.

4. To share a simple means of achieving  greater ways of language-ing the human potential movement through multi-media, Heart felt philosophies, art, songs, poetry, dance, the love of nature, from our friends and extended family.

5. To be a mirror, a way we as a culture can reflect back to ourselves our new story that “We the People”, are writing.

6. To create CAST hubs, nation wide / world wide, so to discover and uncover a Global story that speaks from the heart of its citizens.

7. To make a movie every year for 100 years for the American people.  This film will reflect our mythic story, earth challenges, human rights and action steps that hold us in support of a great story about us and the world we live in.
