Guest Biography:

Bio for Joanna Prentis. D.Hyp.

I was born in Bangalore, southern India. Just before my third birthday, my family returned to Scotland where I spent most of my childhood and teenage years. After I left school, I travelled extensively, married and lived in Hong Kong for two and a half years and then ten years in the West Australian bush, where my three children were born. It was there that my interest in Alternative medicine and education began and also in organic farming, metaphysics and meditation. With a local nurse we ran a Homoeopathic and Radionic practice.
I returned to the UK in 1979 and later trained as a pre-primary and primary Montessori teacher, this led to me educating my two youngest daughters, Katinka and Larissa at home for a few years.
I have certificates in various healing modalities and hold a foundation diploma in Humanistic Psychology. I also trained with Ursula Markham in Hypnotherapy and Past Life therapy and have diplomas in these also’
With my eldest daughter Tatanya, we set up the Starlight Centre in 1988, a centre for healing and expansion of consciousness. Over the years Tatanya introduced us to many innovative techniques and interesting people. We did two firewalks led by Essasani who at that time worked with Chris Griscom at her Nizhoni school in Santa Fe.
In 1999 we closed the centre to concentrate on producing our books. I now speak Language of Light and continue healing, but most of my sessions are now done on Skype, unless someone lives in the UK.
We also worked with Mary Pat and Fred Fuchs (film producers) and script writer Jo Boyle for nearly four years as advisors for their film, based on our Essene Trilogy, but have not, as yet, been able to raise the funds to finance this film.
OUR BOOKS are available through any good bookseller , but also through Ozark Mountain Press. amazon.co.uk and amazon.com Joanna will discuss her new revelations about Jesus and Mary Magdalene in her latest book, the Magdalene Version, Secret Wisdom from a Gnostic Mystery School!

Ken Deifik
Guest Occupation: Musician, Songwriter and corporate technical writer
Guest Biography:


I’m a musician. I play harmonica, guitar, I sing, I write songs.

When I was a kid I played in the coffeehouses and nightclubs of Greenwich Village. I then moved to Nashville and played harmonica on recordings, worked for a time with Marty Robbins, and played in those middle-of-nowhere honky tonks where glass gets broken on purpose. I couldn’t have liked it more.

I moved back to New York in 1977. Leiber & Stoller hired me to work for them. The idea that it was Leiber & Stoller and that I was working in the Brill Building masked the fact that I was suddenly a Suit. It took about a year before that started giving me the heebie-jeebies. Leiber & Stoller are cooler than the other side of the pillow, and they could hardly be better guys to work for, but I was really glad that my gig phone was also ringing.

I played music in the downtown music scene, recorded with Laurie Anderson and worked in one of the earliest New Wave bands, the Love Of Life Orchestra. Phillip Glass wrote his only harmonica music for me. My background in honky tonks served me well.

I also played on the great guitarist Arlen Roth’s first record, and played with Andy Statman, whom I had played with when we were hotshot teenagers. Andy was just beginning to morph into the great Klezmer and Jazz musician that he has become. I also performed with the poet Kenward Elmslie at museums and art galleries up and down the east coast. The last day I lived in New York I performed with him at the Museum of Modern Art.

I moved to Los Angeles in 1981, played on soundtracks, jingles, radio ID’s and even the occasional surf punk record. I also wrote film scripts and created the cable show ‘Inside Out’ for Propaganda Films. In the ’90’s I also performed as half of the duo called the vonBrellas, with the great singer Christie Houser. When she sings, glasses that are about to break think twice.

I still live in LA, with my wife Rebecca Bonar. She’s an actor, producer, director, writer and a brilliant wit who has cracked me up several times a day for more than 25 years. You should be so lucky.

Somewhere along the line I got good at computers, which led me to having ‘something to fall back on,’ which led me to fall back onto it. Much later I stepped through a portal and became a corporate technical writer.

If you’ve been a musician most of your life, there comes a point when being a corporate technical writer is simply unacceptable, even though it’s good, clean work. I blew out of that scene and went back to what I’m really supposed to be doing, writing and playing music for you.

I’ve made a new CD called ‘Music For Small Audience.’ I named it that on account of I felt like naming it that.

Try doing that as a corporate technical writer.

Robert David Hall
Guest Occupation: Actor, Musician, Narrator, Community Activist
Guest Biography:


For the past 16 years, character actor Robert David Hall played quirky coroner Dr. Albert Robbins on the hit CBS series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

For more than six years in the late 70’s and 80’s, he was the daytime voice and music director of KNX-FM, the legendary CBS “mellow-rock” station in Los Angeles.. While working at Columbia Square, newsman Christopher Ames approached Hall about a movie he and his wife were writing. It was Hall’s role as a burn survivor in that film,  Class Action, (with Gene Hackman and Laurence Fishburne) that most closely parallels his own life.

In 1978, an 18-wheel truck struck David’s car and he was severely burned when the car’s gas tank exploded, leading to the amputation of both legs.  Today, he walks comfortably on two prosthetic limbs.

His appearance in Class Action led to film work with Kevin Spacey in The Negotiator and James Spader in Dream Lover.  His many television guest-starring roles include “Brooklyn South,” “Touched By An Angel,” “Highway to Heaven, “LA Law,” “High Incident,” “The Practice,” and “The West Wing.”

In addition to acting, Hall’s passions include music and voice work.  He’s been heard in hundreds of commercials, animated series, and narrations.

In 2011 a CD of his own songs, “Things They Don’t Teach You In School” received praise from music critics and fans- and led to TV performances and an appearance on the Grand Old Opry at the legendary Ryman Auditorium.

A devoted community activist, Hall  is currently on the board of The National Organization on Disability in Washington, D.C.  He served 15 years as the National Chair of the Performers with Disabilities Caucus for both SAG-AFTRA and Actors Equity and has served on SAG’s national board as well.

Hall also spends time speaking to diverse organizations such as the Youth Leadership Forum for Students with Disabilities, The Amputee Coalition of America, and the World Congress for Burn Survivors.

In 2005 and 2008, he addressed the United Nations General Assembly and helped present the Franklin D. Roosevelt ‘Disability Awareness’ Award to the King of Jordan and the Consul General of New Zealand.

In 2010, Hall spoke at the White House for the 20th Anniversary of the “Americans With Disabilities Act,” and was honored to introduce President Obama.

He credits much of his acting success to years of study with Gordon Hunt, Gary Austin, and work in Equity waiver classical theater.

A graduate of UCLA, Robert David Hall is the father of an adult son, Andrew. He and his wife, Judy, live in Los Angeles.

Erin Brockovich
Guest Occupation: Enviromental Activist/Consumer Advocate
Guest Biography:
Erin Brockovich is best known for her involvement in one of the largest direct action lawsuits in U.S. history and is the subject of the 2000 film 'Erin Brockovich.'


Consumer advocate and environmental activist Erin Brockovich was born in Kansas in 1960. While working as a file clerk at a Los Angeles law firm in 1992, Brockovich uncovered documents that ultimately led to more than 600 residents of Hinkley, California, filing a lawsuit against utility giant PG&E. The $333 million settlement they received is the largest of its kind in the history of the United States. The story of Brokovich’s life and involvement in the case was the subject of the 2000 film Erin Brockovich, which starred Julia Roberts in the title role. Since the film’s release, Erin Brockovich has continued to work as a consumer advocate and environmental activist.

Early Life

Consumer advocate and environmental activist Erin Brockovich was born Erin Pattee in Lawrence, Kansas, on June 22, 1960. The youngest of four children, she grew up in a tightknit middle-class family. Her father was an industrial engineer, and her mother was a journalist. Diagnosed as dyslexic at a young age, Erin was not a particularly good student. After graduating high school in 1978, Erin briefly attended Kansas State University before transferring to Miss Wade's Fashion Merchandising College (now Wade College) in Dallas, Texas, where she graduated with an associate’s degree in applied arts in 1980.

After earning her degree, Erin moved with a friend to Newport Beach, California. After working briefly as a management trainee at Kmart, in 1981 she quit and entered and won the Miss Pacific Coast beauty pageant. She also met her first husband, Shawn Brown, around this time, whom she married in April 1982. The young couple moved around the country for the next few years, during which time Erin gave birth to two children, Matthew and Katie. However, their marriage eventually fell apart, and they were divorced in 1987.

Now a single mother, to support her children Erin found work as an assistant at a brokerage firm in Reno, Nevada, where she met Steve Brockovich. They married in 1989 but divorced within a year, at which point Erin learned she was pregnant with her third child, Elizabeth. The events that followed would set Erin Brockovich on the path to her eventual fame.

Hinkley and Hollywood

Shortly after her divorce, Brockovich was involved in a severe car accident that necessitated her having neck surgery. She then moved to Los Angeles’s San Fernando Valley, where she was referred by a friend to the law firm Masry & Vititoe, whom she hired to represent her in her accident case. Brokovich was eventually awarded a small settlement, but not enough to support her family with. Feeling sorry for her, in 1992 attorney Ed Masry offered her a clerical job at the firm.

One day, while filing documents for a real estate case involving the utility giant Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), Brockovich noticed that the paperwork included blood samples. Her suspicions aroused, she asked Masry permission to look into the matter further. In subsequent visits to the California desert town of Hinkley, Brockovich eventually uncovered evidence linking a rash of illnesses there to high levels of hexavalent chromium found in the drinking water. When the pollution was eventually traced back to the PG&E compressor station in Hinkley, more than 600 hundred of the town’s residents hired Masry & Vititoe in 1993 to represent them. After information surfaced during the trial that suggested PG&E had been aware of and tried to cover up the pollution, the case was settled in 1996 for $333 million, the largest in United States history for a case of its kind.

For her part in bringing the case to the firm, Brockovich received a fee of $2.5 million. But the publicity that the case received also brought Brockovich to the attention of Danny DeVito’s production company, Jersey Films, who bought the rights to Brockovich’s story in 1995.

Julia Roberts as Brockovich

Released in 2000, the film Erin Brockovich stars Julia Roberts as Brockovich and Albert Finney as Masry in a mostly accurate recounting of the Hinkley lawsuit. It also features a cameo by Brockovich herself, who appears briefly onscreen as a waitress. The movie was a major critical and commercial success, earning more than $250 million worldwide and receiving multiple Academy Award nominations. For her performance as Brockovich, Julia Roberts won the award for Best Actress.

Dr Michael Salla
Guest Occupation: PhD, Dr.Michael E. Salla, is a pioneer in the development of ‘Exopolitics’, the political study of the key actors, institutions and processes associated with extraterrestrial life.
Guest Biography:

Dr.Michael E. Salla, is a pioneer in the development of ‘Exopolitics’, the political study of the key actors, institutions and processes associated with extraterrestrial life. His interest in exopolitics evolved out of his investigation of the sources of international conflict and its relationship to an extraterrestrial presence that is not acknowledged to the general public, elected officials or even senior military officials.

Dr Salla’s groundbreaking Exopolitics: Political Implications of the Extraterrestrial Presence (2004) was the first published book on exopolitics and explained the political implications of extraterrestrial life.

In Exposing U.S. Government Policies on Extraterrestrial Life (2009) he revealed how the world’s most powerful nation secretly manages information concerning extraterrestrial life and technology.

In Galactic Diplomacy: Getting to Yes with ET (2013) he shows how humanity can negotiate with extraterrestrial civilizations in a way that protects our vital interests.

In Kennedy’s Last Stand: Eisenhower, UFOs, MJ-12 & JFK’s Assassination (2013), he documents the tragic efforts by President Kennedy to share more widely the truth about UFOs & extraterrestrial visitation.

In Insiders Reveal Secret Space Programs and Extraterrestrial Alliances (2015), Dr. Salla analyzes whistleblower testimonies revealing the extent of classified  space programs and extraterrestrial diplomacy.

Finally, in his most recent book, US Navy’s Secret Space Programs and Nordic Extraterrestrial Alliance (2017), he presents extensive documentation supporting the existence of a highly advanced US Navy space program capable of interstellar travel.

Dr. Salla is an internationally recognized scholar in international politics, conflict resolution and US foreign policy, and is the author/editor of an additional four books including The Hero’s Journey Toward a Second American Century (Greenwood Press, 2002); (Central Queensland University Press, 1995); Why the Cold War Ended (Greenwood Press, 1995); and Islamic Radicalism, Muslim Nations and the West (1993). He has also authored more than seventy articles, chapters, and book reviews on peace, ethnic conflict and conflict resolution. He has held academic appointments in the School of International Service & the Center for Global Peace, American University, Washington DC (1996-2004); the Department of Political Science, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia (1994-96); and the Elliott School of International Affairs, George Washington University, Washington D.C., (2002). He has a Ph.D in Government from the University of Queensland, Australia, and an M.A. in Philosophy from the University of Melbourne, Australia. He has conducted research and fieldwork in the ethnic conflicts in East Timor, Kosovo, Macedonia, and Sri Lanka, and organized peacemaking initiatives involving mid to high level participants from these conflicts.

Dr. Salla founded the Exopolitics Institute (2005) and the Exopolitics Journal (2006). He has co-organized five international conferences on extraterrestrial life and Earth Transformation on the Big Island of Hawaii. Dr Salla is the host of ExoNews.TV and has appeared in hundreds of radio and television shows and international conferences for his research on exopolitics and international conflict.

Guest Biography:



B I L L Y   C O B H A M

In 1969 Billy Cobham co-founded the fusion group Dreams, which also featured Randy Brecker, Michael Brecker, John Abercrombie, Don Grolnick, Barry Rodgers, and Will Lee. The following year he was invited to join Miles Davis's group and contributed to four pivotal recordings by the trumpeter, including Bitches Brew (where he collaborated with guitarist John McLaughlin) and Tribute to Jack Johnson. 

Mahavishnu Orchestra was formed by McLaughlin in 1971 with Cobham, Jan Hammer, Jerry Goodman, and Rick Laird. They released three acclaimed albums (beginning with Inner Mounting Flame) before the band was dissolved and Cobham chose to launch his solo career with Spectrum, one of the definitive albums of the jazz-rock era. 

During the 1970s and '80s, he recorded steadily as a leader for Atlantic, CBS, Elektra, and GRP, collaborating with artists ranging from George Duke, John Scofield, and Tony Williams to Jack Bruce and the Grateful Dead, both on stage and in the studio. 

Cobham was engaged by UNICEF in 1992 to work with autistic outpatients and street children in Santos (near São Paulo), Brazil, in a musical project of several years' duration. "The street children fell into my realm of operations almost by chance, as it was not part of my original mandate," he says. "But due to the unavoidable specter and shadow cast by so many little personalities with big hearts and so much time to ponder life without parental direction, it was inevitable that I would find myself working with them-some of the brightest minds harboring raw talent that I have ever witnessed to date. The shame of it all was that many would never have the opportunity to use their gift." 

In '93 Cobham performed, recorded, and produced at the WOMAD Festival (World of Music, Arts and Dance) with Peter Gabriel, Nigeria's Okuta Percussion, and Farafina from Burkina Faso. (His association with WOMAD continues to this day: over the last several years he's conducted sessions in performance techniques at the University of Bath Spa in England, and he is now an Official Patron of WOMAD in Bath.) 

His current collaboration with the Cuban group Asere has been ongoing since their first performance together at the WOMAD Festival in Reading in 2002. A new CD, De Cuba y de Panamá, is due for summer 2008 release, and a DVD, A Latin Soul, directed by John Hollis, is already out. That package contains live concert footage, two documentaries, and a bonus CD with live and studio tracks. Cobham and Asere will be touring the U.K. this fall. 

In 2011 Cobham began teaching drums online at The Jazz and Fusion Drum School.

In 2013, Cobham celebrated the 40th anniversary of the release of Spectrum CD by touring in USA, Canada and Europe with the Spectrum 40 Band. Also that year, Purple Pyramid Records released the Billy Cobham Compass Point two-CD set, recorded live at Compass Point hotel in the Bahamas in 1997, which was never released before.

Early 2014 marked the release of the much-anticipated "Tales from the Skeleton Coast", which is the third installment of the four recordings produced as a commemoration and celebration of Cobham's mother and father, both of whom were musicians. 
In the summer of 2014, Cobham released a live CD recording from the celebrated Spectrum 40 tours, which dazzled audiences around the world in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of Spectrum CD, the defining album of the jazz-fusion genre. (Spectrum 40 LIVE)

Drumming legend and jazz fusion pioneer Billy Cobham will bring his highly acclaimed Art of the Rhythm Section Retreat back to the Mesa Arts Center for its second year, offering an immersive educational program for drummers, bassists, guitarists and keyboard players. Geared for advanced students to music educators and working professionals alike, the intensive curriculum is designed to give experienced musicians a range of opportunities to delve into the finer points of working as a cohesive unit in the rhythm section from Billy Cobham, along with Dean Brown (guitar), Ric Fierabracci (bass), Gerry Etkins (keyboards), and global drumming ambassador Dom Famularo.

In the words of program founder Billy Cobham, “The unique format of the program allows participants to explore and expand their artistry, develop and refine their band and focus on the all-important elements of teamwork and collaboration, so that all types of instrumentalists can benefit and learn from the perspective of each one of our coaches.”

Through a variety of learning experiences, including interactive lectures, discussions, demonstrations, playing exercises, and nightly jam sessions, participants will discover how to …

Gain and build trust among fellow Rhythm Section musicians in performance.

Stay in sync with yourself so that you can control what you play through your instrument while receiving information from your colleagues in the Rhythm Section.
