My name is Wade Gasque and I’ve been a student of story my entire life. A Nicholl Semifinalist and Film Independent Fellow, my narrative feature film, Tiger Orange, premiered at Outfest and was released by Wolfe worldwide in 2015. I’ve directed theater at the Geffen Playhouse, the Skirball Cultural Center, and with underprivileged teens from all over Los Angeles through City at Peace. My personal essays have appeared in IndieWire and Moviemaker and I’ve coached and collaborated with screenwriters, poets, actors and other creatives throughout my career. I’m certified in Applied Mythology from Pacifica Graduate Institute and I hold a BFA in Acting from Marymount Manhattan. I’m also co-owner of theOffice, a sanctuary for writers here in Santa Monica, CA for over 17 years.
The 2016 presidential election was a turning point for me, a clarion call to show up in the world in a more meaningful and supportive way. I began studying with spiritual mentors, Michael Meade, Sharon Blackie and Thomas Moore, and my client work shifted to include tarot and other modalities of magic and meaning-making. I now host donation-based, online gatherings each month and I write on the challenges and unique opportunities of our time over on the blog. You can read what some of my clients are saying here.
To attend a gathering or to learn about new offerings, sign up for the free monthly museletter. The central hub of my work, the museletter is the best way to stay connected and be the first to know what’s up. I also welcome partnership inquiries or any other questions/comments.
Thanks for being here.
