About Us - Essence of Being

About Us

Staff at Essence of BeingThe Essence of Being started out as the Heart of Acting in 1993. It evolved into the Art of Being Successful, then morphed into The Art of Being, and finally The Essence of Being

We created a graduate course in 1994. Donna Summers, Ross Stearns & Burge Smith designed the courses after compiling segments & philosophies from many different seminars & experiences they had grown from and wanted to share with the world. Donna retired & Ross & Burge continued the energy & developed it further into the realm of energy higher vibration & healing. It became the Essence of Being in 2000. Ross retired and Burge continues to produce and expand the course to encompass all levels of personal development.

Burge is the owner & president of The Essence of Being, Inc. & Burge Enterprises, Inc. Burge Enterprises, Inc. is the umbrella corporation for all of the divisions, which include, The Essence of Being, Inc. (workshops, sessions, trainings, public & corporate), the publishing entity for the books, cd’s, DVD’s, teleseminars, the Essence Centers (franchise centers of healing), and Kid Power(kids camps & family workshops).
