President – Wayne Hackett

Wayne Hackett was born and raised in California, graduating from high school in Tehachapi, California. He attended Abilene Christian University in Abilene, Texas, where he majored in pre-dental studies. He was accepted into the University of Oregon Dental School; however, later chose to return to Abilene Christian University, where he received a B.S. Ed degree, specializing in the sciences and secondary education. In Texas, he worked in both state and private institutions as a teacher/counselor.

In 1972, he moved to Boulder, Colorado, where his interest turned towards holistic health and education. Structural integration (the work of Dr. Ida P. Rolf) shaped and focused much of his early study. On November 14, 1977, Wayne met Mary Burmeister, who has been his teacher and inspiration since that day.

Wayne currently makes his home on the Island of Kauai in Hawaii, where he maintains a private practice. Wayne travels extensively in the United States and throughout the world. He has a particular fascination with the esoteric significance of symbols (numbers) and cosmic geometry (planetary relationships).
