What would the play of your life look like?

This powerful (and scary) question contains the secret sauce to help you make the radical shift into the role of your Higher Self… and your Greater Story

Warning: This is not your typical workshop or seminar experience, and it's not for the faint of heart!

"This experience will rock you to your core and help set the stage for the rest of your life." - Jesse Wilson

Together, with a group of brave souls, you’ll be empowered to Write, Tell, and Live Your Greater Story.

COVID-19 is our ultimate wake up call. The dark chasm of fear that has gripped our entire planet is calling us to embrace our greatest light where we are challenged to awaken to who we must become to make the world a better place.

It is time to step into your greater role, and your greater story.

Welcome to the stage.

“The Lessons From The Stage writing workshop felt timeless, which, for me, is the mark of an experience of a lifetime that supersedes all those confusing emotions and doubts I carry around from day to day, and tells me that I am right where I’m supposed to be, right here, right now.”

Katherine Spicer Colorado Springs Attorney

Live where you fear to live. Live your Greater Story.


Honed from its origins in helping shift the fragmented lives of men and women in prison into lives of meaning and purpose, these groundbreaking lessons from the stage have been used as a pivotal success skill for veterans, teachers, athletes, artists, attorneys, therapists, mom and dads, entrepreneurs, as well as top business leaders across the country.

The Lessons From The Stage experience is designed for you to discard your old, destructive ways of thinking and step into your new, more powerful role through the timeless and transformational tools of the theater. Through deep creativity and play, you will be empowered to re-frame and release your old story with compassion and forgiveness, and learn how our greatest obstacles can be our greatest teachers as you begin the process of stepping into a new story…The Greater Story.

You will find yourself in a whole new arena of self-discovery, one that embraces the mind, body, and spirit of change. Through the 4 Steps of The Monologue, a powerful and highly effective communication and human connection tool, you will boldly step into the artistry of becoming the author of your own life.

“Anybody who can imagine using theater and storytelling as a vehicle for enormous growth and change needs to get on Jesse’s list and sign up for Lessons From The Stage! It was amazing to be a part of a group of men and women who had the courage to share and bring their new stories to life. Jesse helped strengthen my voice not only as a writer but as a human being! What’s the difference?”

Warren Epstein Communications Director at The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center

“When you allow your old ideas and beliefs surrounding the old story to collapse, you will become The Watcher of your life, and move from the role of Victim to Creator. Acting experience or not, nothing gets you there faster than the tools of the theater.”

- Jesse Wilson

Over the course of our experience together — besides having a ton of fun with a small group of other attendees (most of whom have never “done acting” in their entire lives) — you’ll learn simple but powerful stage techniques pivotal to A-List actors that touch us, inspire us, and are also the primary vehicles for creating motivation, healing, and lasting change.

But unlike actors, you will not be learning to play another character, you will be learning to play the greatest version of yourself. These simple tools will help get you on the pathway to “flipping the script on your fear,” mastering the art of human connection, and living the role of a lifetime…you!
