JAMES MELLON, RENOWNED NEW THOUGHT TEACHER, SPEAKER AND AUTHOR.
CO-FOUNDER OF GLOBAL TRUTH NETWORK.
James J. Mellon arrived at his position as Co-Founder of Global Truth Network and Spiritual Director of the NoHo Arts Center for New Thought, a Center for Spiritual Living in Los Angeles CA, after a very full and award-winning career in the entertainment industry – as an artist in Broadway theatre, TV, film, music and dance.
While years of success in the spotlight were a dream come true for James creatively and professionally, he found himself unfulfilled and searching for ways to express himself spiritually. It was a timely casting in the role of Jesus in Jesus Christ Superstar that impacted his life to such a significant degree that he began asking himself if he was on the right path altogether.
Not too long after, James’s career lead him to Los Angeles, CA where he attended a lecture by Dr. David Walker on a topic by Dr. Ernest Holmes. The moment he heard these words: “There is a power for good in the universe and you can use it. Not only can you use it, but you are using it,” was the moment his life changed and the place inside of him that felt empty began to fill up.
Now an ordained New Thought Minister, Rev. James Mellon is author of the book, Mental Muscle: 16 Weeks of Spiritual Boot Camp and facilitator of over two hundred weeks of in-depth exploration using the methods and tools revealed in his book. His mantra, “Do the Work, Live the Results,” has helped inspire his “boot campers” to courageously go to places usually left undiscovered. His vision statement for his Center, “Living Life to the Fullest,” and mission statement of “Have At It!” pretty much sums up his life philosophy.
As a theatre actor he made his Broadway debut as Riff in West Side Story, directed by Jerome Robbins and performed in many plays and musicals including: A Chorus Line, 42nd Street, The Fifth of July and Jesus Christ Superstar, in which he played the role of Jesus. His work has lead him to many respected theatres and festivals including The Goodspeed Opera House, The New York Shakespeare Festival, Cleveland Playhouse, The Kennedy Center, The Folger Theatre in Washington D.C., as well as The Williamstown Theatre Festival.
James is also the Artistic Director for the award winning Los Angeles theatre company, NoHo ACE (Arts Center Ensemble). For NoHo ACE, he directed Jerusalem, A Boy Called Lizard (Ovation nomination - Original Musical), Feed (LA Weekly nomination – Direction), The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (Ovation nomination, LA Weekly nomination – Original Musical), Bush Is Bad (LA Weekly Award – Acting Ensemble, nomination – Best Musical) and Pest Control (LA Weekly Nomination – Best Musical). He is also the director/writer/co-composer of ACE’s seasonal yuletide hit, "Yo Ho Ho, A Pirate’s Christmas!" and the award-nominated, "A Boy Called Lizard".
As a writer, James adapted Oscar Wilde’s “The Picture of Dorian Gray” into the World Premiere Musical, Dorian, which premiered at The Denver Center’s Buell Theatre in the fall of 2004. It subsequently opened The NoHo Arts Center’s first season in 2005 and went on to receive Ovation, LA Weekly, Backstage and Drama Critics nominations. James adapted The Ghost and Mrs. Muir from the novel of the same name as well as A Boy Called Lizard from the Dennis Covington novel, “Lizard.” His original musical, An Unfinished Song, was nominated for numerous awards and has been produced in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Maine and Sydney, Australia.
Two of Mr. Mellon’s original musicals have recently been published by Samuel French: Yo Ho Ho, A Pirate’s Christmas! and A Boy Called Lizard.
He is currently working on his second book, “C.P.R. – Core Prosperity Relief,” and is facilitating the inaugural Core Prosperity Relief Course. He is married to Global Truth Network’s Co-Founder, Kevin Bailey, and has two incredible children, William and Nora James. And this is only the beginning…
