“LIVE SIMPLY IN 'FRIENDSHIP FOR NO ADVANTAGE'
SO THAT OTHERS MAY SIMPLY LIVE“
Welcome to my updated site. Liesbet and I have been apart for close to five years now; but I still honour her beautiful dolphin-goddess spirit, amazing creativity and love of life.
I continue pushing to a higher level with all of my creative work: I have produced almost 200 episodes of 'On the Brink' radio, have now painted close to 48,000 rocks since starting in 1993, while I continue to travel extensively in Australia and New Zealand.
I feel ever more deeply embraced by Mother Earth, Mother Ocean, the Star Nations, all the kingdoms of life, mitakuye oyasin, and my beloved whales and dolphins.
My magnum opus, an ongoing series of 'beyond films' about the cetaceans and the health of Mother Ocean, continues to evolve and unfold with plans for several other films as well as books honouring my personal journey - My 'big picture' world view, and photography of some special places that I love as well as of my visual art.
I extend many thanks and blessings to and for my wonderful friends and family who make me possible.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Jeff Phillips & Liesbet Verstraeten
For five years they were on a unique and wonderful journey, travelling together, creating and honouring life on Mother Earth. Their visual art, photography, film-making, music and networking combined into a synergetic whole dedicated to carrying the torch of a true spiritual vision based on sharing and love. They had hitch-hiked extensively around Australia and New Zealand, connecting with the land and the people; their inspiration comes directly from the land, sea and sky; the Earth, moon and sun; all fellow beings both human and non-human, the cosmos, and eternal consciousness. They are of the P.O.O.H. tribe, the 'people of one heart.'
What they were really about was creativity in harmony with a highest spiritual path. Their mission as crew members of Mothership Earth was not only to honour the beauty and power of nature, but to create awareness of the ways that humanity is destroying our planet through ways of ‘living’ that are incompatible with life and to re-navigate our overall process towards a more conscious and coherent reality in which lethal contradictions have been resolved, in which mitakuye oyasin, ‘all our relations’ can truly flourish.
Together they’d painted several thousand rocks and hundreds of paintings and murals, made tens of thousands of photos and four films, played heaps of music and shared the fruits of our creativity with friends all over the world. They share a very deep and special connection with indigenous people of land and sea, in particular, the native Americans, the Australian aborigines, and the whales and dolphins.
Jeff is a native of the Carolinas and hitch-hiked over 150,000 miles all over North America before coming ‘down under.’ His back-ground is in interdisciplinary science, mainly physics, zoology, and psychology. He has recorded several cd’s of original music and had articles published in several magazines, part of on-going ‘information activism.’
Liesbet is a native of Belgium and holds a degree in film-making. She plays native American cedar flute, has a brilliant photographic eye and artistic sensitivity, and is also a specialist in nutritional and culinary creativity. She is very much a dolphin in the form of a lovely human being.

REGAIN YOUR BRAIN
"We travel together, passengers on a little spaceship, dependent upon its vulnerable reserves of air and soil, all committed for our safety to its security and peace; preserved from annihilation only by the care, the work, and, I will say, the love we give our fragile craft. We cannot maintain it half fortunate, half miserable, half confident, half despairing, half slave to the ancient enemies of man, half free in a liberation of resources undreamed of until this day. No craft, no crew can travel safely with such vast contradictions. On their resolution depends the survival of us all."
ADLAI STEVENSON, 1964
